Stacy Keibler tries on engagement rings, checks out wedding gowns: oh noes!?

Last weekend, I glanced at these photos on TMZ, and I laughed and laughed. For those of you who hate links (?), that link takes you to posed photos of Stacy Keibler doing a photo-op with jeweler-to-the-stars, Jacob the Jeweler. The photos were so obviously for promotional purposes, I just assumed that the lesson of the story was NOT “Stacy Keibler is engagement-obsessed and she’s wandering around, trying on engagement rings” and more likely “Stacy got paid a cool $50,000 to do a photo op with Jacob the Jeweler because she’s feathering her nest for the time when she falls out of favor of The Clooney.” Still, the photos were distributed to some tabloid outlets, and thus, we have a magical story about Stacy dropping hints to Clooney about wanting a ring and a wedding.

Is George Clooney, 51, ready to take the plunge again? His girlfriend of one year, Stacy Keibler, was spotted trying on engagement rings at the jewelry store Jacob & Co. in Manhattan on Sept. 13.

According to a fellow shopped, Stacy’s heart started racing when Jacob Arabo showed her his palladium collection.

“I want to try on some rings – they are beautiful!” Stacy exclaimed. Stacy “was particularly blown over by a Jacob & Co. canary diamond ring, so yellow might be her color.”

Stacy may have been dropping a big hint to George two days earlier as well, when she checked out an array of breathtaking wedding gowns at the Vera Wang and Marchesa runway shows during NYC’s Fashion Week.

Oh, and she was seen at Vera Wang’s wedding gown show? That’s fairly damning. Maybe there IS something to this. You know where we are now? We’re at the magical time within George Clooney’s relationships where he’s been with The Girl for long enough for it to be considered “serious” and “potentially leading to some kind of settling down,” and that’s just when The Girl starts getting really comfortable. That’s when she starts thinking, “Hey, maybe he WILL marry me.” That’s when she starts mentioning weddings and babies in interviews. And that’s when Ol’ George dumps ‘em. Now, do I think George will dump Stacy just because she was looking at wedding gowns and engagement rings? Hm. I don’t know. He’s dumped girls for less, you know? I think she might just be “on notice.” We’ll see if she talks about “their future together” in an interview. THEN it will be over.

    Oooh, so the contract got extended and improved!

    Wow, Clooney’s people must have returned with really good stats on Stacey likability. The public must really love the American-girl-makeover 3.0 edition.

  2. Cherry says:

    LOL. I’d come to think that Stacy is smarter than this. She knows that her laissez-faire, ‘I’m just one of the guys, a free-spirited tomboy and I don’t need to get married’-attitude is what drew Clooney to her in the first place.
    Sidenote: that is one TACKY looking ring. Women actually wear that crap? It’s awful.

  3. Tifygodess24 says:

    I actually like these two together in a way and I doubt she would be stupid enough to be trying to go the marriage route with him in the public eye considering it’s wide known he freaks and runs the min the girl he is with gets the wedding bug. BUT I always kinda wonder if maybe George is playing a little bit of mind games with these girls behind the scenes like ” baby you never know maybe one day … “Maybe your love with change me ” or some crap. Just giving them enough to have a glimpse of hope or put the thought in their head. Because come on it seems his relationships always fall in the same pattern.

  4. Charlotte says:

    I don’t see the need for every couple to have to get married; you can have a committed and stable relationship without a piece of paper, and a ceremony doesn’t guarantee anything. However, a person should have the right to at least feel secure in their relationship and not that the merest whiff of commitment talk will spell the end. That just echoes too much of emotional abuse.
    That is if this isn’t all a contract.

  5. DanaG says:

    Stacy could be the first girl to get George past the “arm candy” stage. I saw her wearing that ring she seemed very self assured about it. Stacy isn’t stupid so she wouldn’t do it unless she felt certain George wouldn’t blow his lid. I think we will get an engagement announcement soon. I saw her wearing a very lovely white dress looks like she is dropping hints of her upcoming happy event.

    • Cherry says:

      You can’t honestly believe that! What has she ever done to make you believe that she ‘could be the first girl to get George past the “arm candy” stage’? To me, she’s rather the ULTIMATE arm candy girl. Pretty, easy-going, fun, not too demanding and not too challenging. Apart from anything, hasn’t Clooney made it all too clear -in multiple interviews over the years- that he does not want to get married again? Why would he change his mind now?

    • Me Too says:

      I hate saying this especially about someone I don’t know but I’ve never seen a couple who look so bad together. I actually think George is still pretty hot and is good looking. But…any photos taken with Stacy make him look like her dad or old uncle taking his “girl” out for the prom. She towers over him and with every photo seems to age him more.

      Worse, while I have no doubt that she’s a nice person, she seems pretty vacuous so it seems the only thing they’d have going would be arm candy business and sex. Maybe that’s enough for George. Don’t know. But, unlike a lot of people, I really don’t get a gay vibe from him. I think he likes a certain kind of woman and he tires of them quickly.

      ROTFLMAO! They are ALL this stupid. They ALL think they are the ONE to change the guy. Women never learn.

  6. spinner says:

    uh oh…the beginning of the end.

  7. mollie says:

    I really like her hair color in these photos. How would you describe that to a stylist? I want that color.

  8. Gwen says:

    It would IMO be a genious move for George if he did actually marry. If he likes Stacy – and it seems he does – and if it’s a contract relatiohship anyway, being married wouldn’t be that big a difference except many more would believe the relationship to be real.

  9. Cat says:

    Anyone else think they look alike? Could explain his infatuation…

  10. flourpot says:

    I want to see George hook up with Vanessa Paradis. hehe! You know, just for giggles.

  11. nope says:

    I think it’s all part of the contract. The agreement is:”when our contract is expiring, start talking about marriage, wedding dresses, rings and children, so that I have a good reason to dump you”.

  12. Cody says:

    Since George and Stacy left Italy, they have not been photographed for weeks together. She has spent a lot of time traveling with friends in Greece and then in New York for fashion week. She went from a summer of barely tweeting to tweeting constantly about everything and then trying to get her name and picture on a lot of the gossip sights. She is trying too hard. I think the contract is up and they have split up. The excuse will be that they are very busy with their careers. He is giving her time to land on her feet and use the relationship for publicity.

    • Raven says:

      One way to get her name in the news would be to wrangle an invitation to the Vera Wang show. Or maybe it was promotional like the photos for Jacob the Jeweler

      • Me Too says:

        A friend of mine works for one of the fashion houses. They pay “celebrities” to sit in the front row, in many cases. I suspect she was paid to attend some of the shows she did. Others were payback–Marchesa for example. The jewelry shindig was definitely a paid thing…sadly. The level of “celebrity” at that event was pretty much D list. She apparently makes $25000 a gig. Not bad for someone no one knew except for old wrestling fans!

  13. Guest says:

    What I can’t believe, is that this girl/woman, got paid $50,000 to make an appearance at a fashion show just because she dated George Clooney, because it wouldn’t be for her wonderful acting talent or that she is an ex-wrestler or a ex Ravens cheerleader or she came in third place with DWTS six years ago. I guess she knows how to sleep with the right people.

  14. Grace says:

    I wonder who George is going to show up with next. Maybe the next one will be a brunette.

  15. Liberty says:

    My dream: these women get their contracts renewed or cancelled on tv in the Ring of Fire Challenge so we can all watch. They have to succeed at challenges like rock climbing, dressing themselves for an A-list event, vacationing skills, limberness and whips, smile-hard and a spa day with Cindy and a 78 hour road trip with Brad Pitt. Enough points equals 6 month renewal. There can also be incumbent vs. New Girl backflip-off — like, for sweeps time.

  16. roxy750 says:

    The guy is gay. End of story. It’s a Tom Cruise (but slightly looser) agreement type.

  17. Talie says:

    She would’ve known the playbook and she just doesn’t seem that dumb to me.

  18. tru tru says:

    she better get ready for the “its ME, NOT you” speech….

    you know its coming.

  19. KellyinSeattle says:

    Think if they had kids; we’d call them the Keibler elves. They should have a Bachelor show for Clooney; but he’d never pick one girl, of course. I like her dress; in the jeans, she’s posing so hard it looks like she really has to pee.

  20. Jaded says:

    He should dump her for wearing that god-awful Marchesa dress….

  21. Elizabeth says:

    I keep thinking that Clooney’s relatives must turn to his “newwest” new girlfriend when they 1st meet her and say “Wow, you’re really nice! I’m going to miss you when you’re gone”.

  22. taxi says:

    Maybe George is reconsidering his one-marriage-was-enough view as he gets older. He’d have a wife & maybe kids to keep him company & take care of him when he’s old & feeble.

    • Really? says:

      Naaahhh, look at Jack Nicholson, he’ll just do the same thing when he’s 75, they might as well just install freaking conveyor belts in their houses so their chicas du jour can just roll by like sushi on a sushi train, and the old feeble but wealthy once-handsome has-beens can pick and choose at their leisure, “hmmm, let’s see, i’ll have one of those, and a little bit of that…” They wouldn’t even have to get out of their orthopedic barcoloungers.

      I know some of y’all might think that that would be a cool experience, that’s cool, as long as you don’t mind being part of a sushi train.


  23. Stacia says:

    Oh noes!…lol And George is thinking Hell Noes to marriage. Sorry,he ain’t havin’ none of that. Another starlet whose heart he will step on as he makes his way out the door (or closet).

  24. Aqua says:

    Well,I wouldn’t exactly pass up the opportunity to make $50,000 for a couple of hours of work.Especially if I knew my a$$ could be out the door at any time.

  25. bELLA says:

    omg…she`s not my 1st pick of the litter…dream on.

  26. Brittney says:

    So that blind item WAS about them…!

    Also, all these “her?” comments amuse me. Unless you’ve met the woman (at the very least) a few times, you have absolutely no idea why or if she’s “enough” to be the one to “break” him. Hell, I don’t even know enough to judge my best friend’s relationship; I’m not there when it’s just the two of them, and that’s what counts.

  27. Shawn says:

    This stunt was scripted, just as it was with the previous fake girlfriend. They don’t even bother changing the fake girlfriend script.
