Stacy Keibler “has stepped up efforts to milk the Clooney Machine for all it’s worth”

Things got a little bit crazy between George Clooney and Stacy Keibler a few months ago. There were widespread rumors that Clooney was losing interest and that a breakup was imminent. Those rumors came on the heels of Stacy trying on engagement rings and reportedly checking out wedding gowns, so… yeah, I feel pretty confident that she was put on notice. But she managed to bounce back, showing up on Clooney’s arm at some red carpets, and he even took her to Mexico for Thanksgiving, which is like his new holiday tradition. Stacy got back on message (that message: “I don’t want to get married, I’m a guy’s girl, I’m not into commitment” etc) and she kept her position. For now.

But for how long will Stacy be able to stay? I guess it depends on several factors, the biggest one being: is Argo going to be up for all of the awards this year? Clooney executive produced Argo, and if there are awards season red carpets to walk, I think Stacy gets to stay through March at least. Mostly because Clooney doesn’t want to go through the hassle of hiring another girl and getting her trained and styled in time for the Oscars. So… in that situation, Stacy is good for another three months at least. But what then? Well, Stacy has a plan!

Stacy Keibler, 33, has spent most of her professional life using her body to advance her career. But since she started dating George Clooney, 51, she’s been using her head.

“Stacy’s always bugging him about having dinner with his agents and pours on the charm around his management team,” a spy tells Star.

And lately, friends say, she has stepped up her efforts to milk the George machine for all it’s worth – because she fears her famously restless boyfriend might be getting ready to move on.

“Stacy’s desperate to land something meaty before the Clooney halo of publicity evaporates,” the source reveals. “Rumor has it, she’s on a mission to get a spot on American Idol. She was all over Randy Jackson at the AMAs recently, hugging and getting all touchy-feely – which completely baffled everyone. Who knew the two of them were even friends.”

Stacy has hustle, I’ve never denied that. What strikes me most about Stacy’s hustle is that she seems to know her limits, and she’s very good at setting attainable goals. Like, she’s not begging George to make her into a supermodel or anything. Stacy takes smaller, lower-profile gigs, like party appearances or Las Vegas “hostessing” gigs or the occasional budget modeling gig, and she’s slowly accruing a nice little nest egg for herself. I think a gig on American Idol is probably a pipe dream, but it’s good to see that Stacy knows where she belongs in general – on reality shows.

    George is really starting to look old.

  2. lower-case deb says:

    the last two pictures, she look so kate middleton-ish.
    maybe the jacket+buttons combo?

    and are those sleeves of a different color than the body of the jacket?

    either way. i dig.

  3. mandy says:

    What is strange it is that we have hardly of new! Usually we see them at least one has twice a week!

  4. mandy says:

    How to think that their history(story, love) is credible!! True and sincere my bottom yes! It is pathetic! And then if george thinks of receiving an Oscar he can always brush himself!

  5. marie says:

    but I thought her personal life was personal? hell, I’d milk it too cause she doesn’t seem all that interesting..

  6. Christina says:

    And why not? Clooney uses these women to ‘enhance’ his reputation and hopefully deflect any gay rumours, so why shouldn’t she also milk the ‘relationship’ for all it’s worth?

    It’s a business arrangement, after all, so it makes sense for both parties to maximise their profits as much as possible.

    • Lauli says:

      I agree with you and I think that
      Clooney is really pathetic.

    • Cazzee says:

      If she is collecting lots of appearance fees and putting that money right in the bank, then I say good for her!!! That is the right way to do it – living like there’s no tomorrow when you are experiencing the high life because of your looks is not a healthy long-term strategy. Much better better to save that extra cash.

      Isn’t one of Clooney’s exes now back to being a cocktail waitress in Vegas? That must suck.

      • Christina says:


        I don’t buy the theory – no doubt encouraged by Clooney’s PR team – that the latest escort really believes that she’s The One who’s going to tie down ‘Gorgeous’ George to a life of domesticity and baybees. I reckon Stacy is savvy enough to know exactly what the deal is – she provides inoffensive arm candy and in return gets to up her profile big time. She knows perfectly well that she’ll be pushed out in favour of the next nobody within months, so why not make the most of it while she can? It’s OK to use someone if they’re using you as well.

    • Kosmos says:

      I’ve heard, too, that Clooney does use these women to enhance his reputation and stave off gay rumors. I agree, that this may be a business arrangement only. We will know for sure if they never marry and the relationship eventually ends like all the others have.

  7. Kimbob says:

    It’s a sad day indeed when your biggest claim to fame is who your current girlfriend is….& everybody knows it’s a fake/contract relationship. But obviously Clooney doesn’t care, & moreover, he LIKES it this way.

    Ugh, what’s in the Kool-Aid in H-wood that’s warped these people into no return?

  8. Caroline says:

    I had never heard of this woman before Clooney, so she’s absolutely right to try and lock down a permanent gig before she’s shown the door.

    What’s ironic is I absolutely don’t hate her, I think she’s actually kind of cute and I am down with her trying to lock down a good gig while she can. On the flipside, I think Clooney will keep finding dumber and dumber chicks as he gets older, and pretty soon he’ll be sad, lonely Jack Nicholson, saying things like “The life of a gigolo never ends well.”

    think about that, George, as you show this one (and the next 4) the door.

    • Christina says:

      The difference between Clooney and Nicholson is that the latter clearly loved being around women – even if he saw them as disposable sex toys. Clooney just looks embarrassed with each of his escorts, as though he knows we know it’s all a farce. He certainly doesn’t look as though he enjoys their company, or as though he’s looking forward to night of hot sex with any of them.

      Hmmm,….. wonder why?

      • aston martin says:

        OMG YES! THIS! Totally what you said here Christina.

        Off topic, but around the election I watched The Ides of March again and was struck at how young Clooney can look in character with good lighting. Photo ops like this do not at all show him to his best advantage. Photo ops like this are made for women and their makeup artists who know how to combat camera flash trauma. Most men, even in tuxes with millions of dollars and power behind them, generally look a little pathetic.

    She’s smart, then. Got to give her that credit.

  10. DT says:

    She’s playing it smart. Good for her. She should think about becoming a producer of reality. The looks don’t last forever but the need for employment does.

  11. Talie says:

    I could see her scoring a host job out of this on a channel like Bravo or Lifetime.

  12. Cody says:

    I think one of the major problems for Stacy, riding on the Clooney Gravy Train, is that she is not very talented. Stacy tries to reinvent herself, but she will always be the WWE girl who wrestled in her underwear. There are plenty of girls in Hollywood, just like her, waiting to take her place, so I hope she is saving her money.

    • Christina says:

      But that’s precisely it: If she were talented, she’d have no reason to be Clooney’s escort du jour. There’s no way he’d want to be with a woman even remotely his equal in fame or talent, which is why he hires these talent-free but fame hungry nobodies.

      Stacey’s ‘relationship’ with Clooney will give her an edge over all the other thousands of ambitious blondes in Hollywood. Sure, it won’t last long, but she knows that – which is exactly why she’s trying to maximise her gains while she can. And I say good for her!

  13. KellyinSeattle says:

    She’s doing quite nicely for herself; if George dumps her, they’ll be a line up of new guys chasing her. Maybe Tom Cruise (kidding; can you imagine; she’s so tall and he’s not)

  14. junegorilla says:

    I want the Clooney/Taylor Swift pairing. PLEASE…just for the postbreakup song alone. What rhymes with beard?

  15. Kayla says:

    The shininess/sheen on her face is hurting my eyes.

  16. Other Guest says:

    I agree with you Kaiser if Argo starts to be nominated for awards we will see them walking the red carpet together, because it is too late to break in another girl. After that, they both have such busy careers they don’t have time to spend together.

  17. Dirty Martini says:

    I’m starting to like this chick.

  18. lkaye says:

    Clooney and this woman are not in a monogamous relationship, I know this for a fact. Good for her, get your money while people still care. Lord knows she has nothing else to fall back on once her looks and he go.

  19. Lorenzo says:

    Mmh, I would love to read a headline like this about me and my girlfriend, wouldn’t you?
    How perverted can people be.
    Clooney’s life seems to be full of love!

    • OhDear says:

      And to a casual gossip reader (I’m guessing most people) who doesn’t understand the concept of contractual relationships, it makes her look like a golddigger who’s using Clooney to advance her career. I mean, she is, but she’s doing it with Clooney’s full consent – so she’s being smart and resourceful, not grasping nor taking advantage of anyone.

      • Lorenzo says:

        And to a person who doesn’t understand very simple things: This headline isn’t very flattering. Full Stop.
        He is looking like an old fool who needs to pay for his girlfriend and pamper her ego, because she wants to be famous for nothing.
        If she would be smart, she would do something with a sense in it instead of cashing in on credits of her boyfriend and show her pimples to the cameras.

    She’s a brunette now !!! George always did prefer brunettes …
