Us Weekly: Stacy Keibler is ‘irked’ by George Clooney’s engagement

wenn21290801

If you’ve been paying attention to George Clooney’s Engagement Spectacular, you know that “someone” (George’s publicist) has been lacing the happy-happy stories with not-so-subtle shade for George’s ex-girlfriends. “Someone” has ensured that we never think of Amal Alamuddin like those other uneducated, unambitious, unserious, fame-hungry golddiggers that George has dated before. Which has made many us wonder, “What’s up with that?” I mean, no one forced Clooney to “Pretty Woman” this succession of C-listers before Amal. And now we’re in the position of actually feeling sorry for Clooney’s Former Girls. Like, say, Stacy Keibler. Keibler moved on VERY quickly after George, and she’s already married and knocked up. But someone thinks she’s still “irked” by George’s Fiancée Rollout.

Did Stacy Keibler get played by Hollywood’s most infamous playboy? George Clooney’s April 22 proposal to British human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin was a surprise to many, including the Gravity actor’s ex-girlfriend, who once thought she’d be the one saying “I do” to the longtime bachelor.

A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that Keibler, 34, was “irked” by her ex’s engagement last month. “When George and Stacy got together, he told her she would be the one he’d marry — and that they could have kids,” the insider tells Us of the former model, who dated Clooney, 52, for two years before their split in July 2013.

Alas, that vision of domestic bliss never came to be for the couple. But all’s well that ends well — Keibler married businessman Jared Pobre in March and is now expecting the couple’s first child, a baby girl, later this year. And a pal insists there’s no bad blood between her and Clooney.
“Stacy’s happy for George,” the second insider tells Us. “She is glad he was able to find true love.”

[From Us Weekly]

Just an hour or so after Us Weekly dropped that story online, Gossip Cop got a tip from a “a source close to the situation.” Why can’t they just say it’s Stacy? Because it’s Stacy. So, Gossip Cop’s source says that Us Weekly’s story is “100% false” and “Stacy is so happy with the way things worked out. She has found her perfect match and is excited to start a family. She is so happy that George has done the same and feels strongly that things in life happen for a reason.” And if you read Stacy’s wedding interview in People Magazine, you will understand when I say that FOR SURE Stacy made a statement to Gossip Cop. That sounds just like her.

So, while George’s publicist is making sure everyone knows that Amal is nothing like any of Clooney’s exes, Stacy is bending over backwards to make sure that no one thinks she’s still hung up on Clooney. But the fact that she ran to Gossip Cop right away makes me think otherwise.

    “he told her she would be the one he’d marry — and that they could have kids” Not buying that – I think he was always “no marriage, no kids” upfront with all his exes, but meeting Amal changed his mind. Just my guess anyway.

    • Sabrina says:

      I also think that Stacy knew the deal upfront before she got involved with George. The magazines are just trying to get more hits from the engagement story.

      • Kosmos says:

        Are we wrong to think that there has “always” been a deal up front? That’s precisely why these women just go off into the sunset after the one or two-year period of dating Clooney is over, right? No big breakup splash, no issues, no angry ex-girlfriends. So I actually do not think Stacey is irked, and that this story might be completely untrue. I have to say, I really don’t know the complete truth about Clooney….for years, I thought he was gay because of neighbors who thought they saw him kissing a man, but I have no proof. I have even considered that this new woman is a fake, but I could be totally off.

    • BangersandMash says:

      But I also think Kaiser is right in thinking that George’s people were trying to throw indirect shade at his exes… obviously in order to convince us that only a barrister could get his (permanent) attention, thus he was just playing around with the rest of them, until Amal came.
      When in my personal opinion, I think he chose Amal not because she was ‘better’ than the rest of his exes, but because he’s getting older, and his movies aren’t going to be pulling in as much as they did when he was younger, and he now understands that he needs someone to re-direct his career into something else, as well as he needs someone to take care of him in his latter years. (which is also why I think Hugh Hefner married too).

      I know it sounds bitchy to say this, but that’s how I see it.

      • Jaded says:

        I agree – he’s nothing if not strategic in his choice of partners. When he was at the top of his game he had fluffy, hot arm-candy type women who weren’t a challenge in the brain department. He realized as he got older that these types were dragging down his credibility as his focus turned more towards the public arena and directing, and his libido started to slow down. That’s when you need someone who can challenge your mind, be a partner in more ways than just sexually.

      • bluhare says:

        OR maybe he actually fell in love with someone totally different than the people he dated before. It’s happened before. It happened to me.

      • Suzanneg444 says:

        Exactly on the money, Jaded…That’s precisely what most of the old “has been womanizer’s” do…I’ve seen it personally, in the real world..not just Hollywood! George is getting married because he knows his best days are behind him…He’s been labeled a serial womanizer/user…so to redesign his image…he’s taking the plunge. He also held out for someone with bragging rights. You have to ask yourself just how smart SHE is…to be caught up in this major Hollywood storyline…when she could easily have landed someone with far better credentials, in the private sector, than ol Georgie Boy! Just because she has a law degree…doesn’t mean she has common sense. We’ve all seen that happen many times with people who are educated…but not real swift when it comes to everyday common sense things. I don’t pretend to know what this woman is like…nor does it matter to anyone what choices she makes outside of her family and friends…I wish them the best. I hope he’s legit and not just using her for his political aspirations.

    • Decloo says:

      If I were Stacey, I would be less pissed that I did not end up being the “one” and more pissed at basically being called a bimbo by all the media, i.e “George has finally found someone on his level.”

  2. blue marie says:

    I don’t feel sorry for any of his formers, because I think they all knew the deal when they dated him. Maybe I’m cynical but I do think there’s something to this marriage to Amal, there’s an endgame that has nothing to do with babies.

    I gotta say, I think in the past week we’ve read as much about Clooney’s engagement/wedding as we have Kim/Kanye wedding and it’s really bugging me.

    • frisbeejada says:

      I don’t think you’re cynical (or I am as well) I do think there is definitely a hidden agenda regarding this engagement that has nothing to do with the hearts and flowers bollocks his publicist is selling. I do think his former ‘girlfriends’ were contract players (just like Old Hollywood used to do) but I do feel a twinge of sympathy for the way they are being portrayed to big Amal up as the ‘something special’ (when she’s probably just got a better contract) I suspect the deal they signed up to didn’t involved being demeaned in public at a later date in a way that’s really unnecessary. I know what’s bugging me about the whole thing is the idea he might be prepared to have kids, to bring small, vulnerable human beings into this world for the sake of his image/ambitions/cover-up (it could be all three). To bring children into this world for any other reason but to love them and raise them well would be despicable, IF that is indeed his intention. In reality I think all bets are off at the moment regarding his true intentions but I still have a nagging feeling that there are political ambitions behind this whole debacle.

      • blue marie says:

        yeah I agree, I really would not be shocked if he ran for an office.

      • frisbeejada says:

        Reagan started off as a Democrat and then became Governor of California as a Republican, I still think the Clooney camp may well be thinking along the lines of ‘If Reagan can do it – why not George?’ He appears to be popular in the Industry, his immensely rich friends/colleagues are now coming forward (Julia Roberts, Matt Damon) to convince us all this engagement is ‘real’, it all feels like he’s got a lot of backing and he’s gearing up to utilize it to me.

      • Renee28 says:

        If he needed a wife to run for office he would have stuck with someone like Keibler. She’s inoffensive and relatively low-key. I’ve already seen people attacking Amal for defending Assange and Abdullah al-Senussi. That’s not good for a political run.

      • frisbeejada says:

        Possibly but Obama’s father was Muslim and the American Right Wing made an absolute meal out of that when he was running for President, didn’t they call him Barack Osama at one point and made claims that he was covertly supporting a Muslim agenda? It made no difference to him in the long run, he came apparently out of nowhere, piled through it all and won. Maybe the thinking is if Obama can overcome that background so can Amal. The argument could also be made that to defend Assange and al-Senussi she is just doing her job. In any country where the rule of Law exists everyone is entitled to representation regardless of how heinous they are and the crimes they commit. In terms of turning around his public image (and we aren’t dealing with reality here but image) a high end human rights lawyer is a better bet than an ex-mud wrestler – which sounds quite cruel but unfortunately that’s how PR works and his ‘team’ are already knocking everyone of his ex-girlfriends to make Amal seem special/acceptable.

    • kcarp says:

      The things Amal is being trashed about are not things your everyday American will think about. The image Clooney would present with Stacy would be Hollywood Idiot and Ex-Wrestler, with Amal it is Hollywood Star with Respected London Attorney.

      It is all image. Stacy may be low key but she is doesn’t seem like someone with a whole lot of intelligence. I am not saying she isn’t smart I am just saying what the everyday public see.

      • frisbeejada says:

        Yep, I’m thinking a very similar thing. Yesterday I also posted that Amal’s background could even prove to be a useful distraction to the skeletons reputedly rattling round in Clooney’s closet – starting with the closet, if the opposition are so enraged and distracted by her, it might be easier to shield him and protect his image.

    • jane16 says:

      I agree with Renee. She has had some really sketchy clients, like al-Senussi (charged with crimes against humanity). They have rolled her out as a “human rights activist.” They need to bring out exactly what things she has done in that area, and not stuff like “counselor to the King of Bahrain.” In any event, this whole romance is too bizarre to be believed.

      • Liberty says:

        I agree with you. Her human rights stance which is touted as her just doing her job in that “everyone deserves the right to defense especially if they are billionaire rights-trashing kings” is making me roll my eyes. Why does she prefer very rich clients? Regardless of their ethics? Status? Would that include dating a A-lister? Sure. Plus the intense roll-out, the demeaning comments about the exes, the baby chat…please. I believe one can change, and even fall in love suddenly. But all this…nope, not buying. I smell a gold-plated business deal, or even one that involves double-bearding for mutual status/ career goals benefit.

  3. Kiddo says:

    Never liked her, still don’t, don’t care what she thinks about George’s engagement. However, I’m waiting for the next installment about 2 ply toilet paper from O’Kitt.

  4. Rhea says:

    All I know is that his sudden engagement and talks about marriage plus babies seems too fast and fishy.

    • Original Tessa says:

      My brain keeps going to the Bryan Singer ring and wondering how many guys are going to have to put on a good straight face for the masses when all of the evidence is disclosed. Middle America thinks if you have a wife, you’re straight. Look at how many people John Travolta has fooled.

      • Etheldreda says:

        At this point in his career though, would it really matter that much if George were to come out as gay – not neccessarily saying he is gay btw, just making an argument.

        A decade or so ago, when George was this big matinee idol, yes. But he’s 53, and no longer every housewife’s hearthrob. He likes to think of himself as a Serious Actor and Producer. In that sense, would it really damage his career if he were gay?

        I think what would be more damaging at this point would be the idea that, IF Clooney were to come out as gay, he’d obviously been deliberately hiding it with a string of showmances for years. So at this stage, maybe he has no choice other than to maintain the facade, if that is what it is.

      • minime says:

        @ Etheldreda

        I am also not surely convinced that he is gay, but that his relationships were sketchy they were. One thing for sure is that it involved a very specific contract since none of them, ever gave a detailed interview about it (and yet they were “all golddiggers”, they say).
        I think you are right about this, if he is gay, he wouldn’t come out now because it would show how fake he was all along and that I think could hurt is career somehow…certainly it would damage is public persona.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        @Tessa – your brain and mine are on the same track. If that Singer case ever goes to trial, it’s going to blow the doors off the film industry.

      • Etheldreda says:

        @minime

        That’s how I see it too. Whether or not Clooney is gay, something is not quite right with his ‘relationships’. He’s hiding something, but I’m not sure what it is.

        And I made the same point yesterdays about these supposed ‘golddiggers’ never having given ‘tell-all’ interviews after the break-up. All these ‘relationships’ seem so… clean. There’s never any scandal, never any hints of cheating on either side, never any scandalous kiss ‘n’ tells. Clooney debuts these women on the red carpet, they pose together a few times – with him invariably showing no interest in the escort du jour – and then they split up. That’s it. No gossip, no shenanigans. Odd for such a high profile man.

        And yes, while I don’t think anyone would much care if Clooney were gay now that he’s beyond the hearththrob stage, if he were to come out now, it would expose him as having been a fraud all along. It’s all a bit of a mystery.

    • Hannah says:

      Yep. I still maintain it’s an overreaction to him getting his ego bruised by Tina and Amy.

    • Mrs. Lecter says:

      Agreed. Why isn’t the media picking up on this suddenness? Clooney has been single FOREVER and all of a sudden he’s marrying some woman he’s only dated for months (he gave his other chicks at least a year) and his publicist is putting baby stories out there? I don’t know. Maybe it’s ~true love~ and I’m just cynical?

      • We Are All Made of Stars says:

        Nope, you’re cynical because you have a brain bobbing around up in there. Let’s examine the facts: Closeted and aging Hollywood heartthrob who fancies himself a politico swiftly becomes a national joke after decades of fake-dating L.A. arm candy who could never hope to win him over. Said individual gets upset b/c he is publicly mocked and b/c his now married and preggo ex rebounded like Michael Jordan and came out smelling like roses, which must be a contractual violation in his universe. The commitment phobe, who has gone on record as saying that he will never, ever cramp his style with marriage or children, is swiftly engaged to an image-changing woman who has the clout to connect him to people who are movers and shakers in the world of politics. Suddenly, claim his publicists, he has overcome his cold feet and desires everything he once detested. In a word- yeah, right.

      • Kelliekat says:

        I agree with both of you, it’s the timing and the bizarrely intense PR campaign that give ol’ George away. I think he was blindsided by Stacy’s quick marriage and pregnancy and all of her glowingly happy interviews. It hurt his ego (along with the jokes about his image) so he quickly did a big PR blitz and got engaged to his new image. The whole thing makes me wonder if there will ever be a wedding and if there is, if it lasts longer than a year.

    • kcarp says:

      I think it is something political. He needed some “cred” in the more educated, more world affairs circle. I mean you probably do not want an ex-wrestler wife living in the governor mansion.

      I don’t know that I buy he is gay. I think just about everyone is gay but I just don’t think he is.

    • Nicolette says:

      +1. I’m not buying any of it either.

  5. Anne says:

    I think it’s perfectly natural to be a little unhappy with an ex’s quick marriage, especially when you got into the relationship thinking you won’t have a chance at the ring, which I feel is what happened with Stacey. With that said, I always thought that Stacey was one of the more realistic of George’s exs, and she used her time with him wisely. And really, this is nothing against Amal, but this new engagement just reads like a political marriage to me. Maybe he’s looking to run for office soon?

    • Mrs. Lecter says:

      Good point! Maybe that’s what it’s all about. Otherwise, I don’t see a reason for the wedding/engagement spectacular nonsense..

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      No, nobody marries a Middle Eastern rich girl English person because they have domestic political ambitions. It would make him unelectable just about everywhere in America, and honestly, does this guy who has always tried so hard to be liked by everyone really strike you as the type that wants to roll around in the mud and get filthy in the field of politics? He goes for humanitarian causes that are completely virtuous and unassailable. I would bet he’s swinging at something like an ambassadorship to a reasonably pleasant country or some such appointed, not elected, position.

      • AG-UK says:

        “No, nobody marries a Middle Eastern rich girl English person because they have domestic political ambitions” YOU def. have a point there. That def. won’t go over well for US politics.

      • Anne says:

        You might have a point there. I’m not from the US, and I was thinking more about the political landscape of my home country.

      • kcarp says:

        I see your point about him being liked and not wanting to roll in the mud. I don’t agree with the mid-eastern rich English girl though. I live in Texas and no he wouldn’t get elected her. However, if he runs in California that would different. They love their movie stars. Arnold was the Govenator for how long?

      • bluhare says:

        Thank you! Yep, Julian Assange’s attorney would be a real asset to a politician. Especially now she’s going to defend (gah!! forgetting his name!) someone connected to Syrian atrocities?

      • Angie says:

        When it comes to political ambitions, I agree about unelectability in US, but I doubt that that’s what he’s going for. Elected offices are not the only route to power and influence. Think NGOs and the international stage. Also ask yourself what President Obama’s plans are for post 2016–he’s too young to just retire, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the two of them were making plans to form an NGO relating to human rights.

    • sienna says:

      I totally agree with you about Stacy having a right to feel irked. I have been happily married since WAY before my ex, but there was still a little twinge of something when he walked down the aisle with someone else. Normal, I would say, when it was a such a quicky relationship.

      I don’t find the suddenness of the engagement odd at all. My mom always says that women want to marry when they find the right man; and men decide when they are ready to marry and either propose to whomever they are dating, or they dump their longterm gf and find someone suitable quick. I know lots of instances of the latter. I think this is more of a Warren Beatty.

  6. tila says:

    How do we not know she knew the relationship probably wouldn’t last for too long and was just in it for the fun ride and fast life? I’ve been in relationships before where I wasn’t really expecting it to end in marriage and babies and just lived in the moment then ended up parting amicably.

  7. Cora says:

    I feel bad for his exes. Whether they wanted marriage and babies with Clooney is irrelevant (although Canalis certainly did). I feel sorry for his exes because the media spin on this story is that his former GF’s were inferior, gold-digging nobodies, not worthy of George’s proposal. That is how they’re being portrayed. Whether they had a contract with George or they didn’t want marriage from Clooney, isn’t the issue. The issue is the current media portrayal which is treating them like unworthy, second-class women, undeserving of commitment. Even if his exes have moved on with their lives, this very public mud slinging at them has got to be difficult. And I do blame Clooney for this. I do believe this very underhanded tactic is coming directly from his publicist. When all your “sources” (and even your own mother!) are singing from the same song sheet (vis-à-vis the exes), you know you’re dealing with a very deliberate media strategy from Team Clooney.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree with everything you said. I think the need to promote Amal by insulting his old girlfriends is disgusting, ungentlemanly and just mean.

    • MonicaQ says:

      Agree with this 100%. Plus wouldn’t it be hard to NOT issue a denial with, “Oh those *other* girlfriends are just garbage with heat on it and stupid but this one is a special book unicorn that their love with outlast the Pyramids.” How about they’re all ladies that have one thing in common? Clooney.

    • Dani2 says:

      I agree 100%, I’m glad that Amal is this super educated woman, that really is great but I don’t like the way they’re painting his exes as those poor, pathetic women. They were obviously good enough for him at some point.

    • Angie says:

      +1 Cora–and what does that say about Clooney’s character that he would be so mean just to enhance himself and his “romance of the century?” Maybe his Nice Guy persona is as fake as his new Straight, Kid-Loving Family Man persona.

    • Aqua says:

      Yes, this constant putting down of his previous girlfriends in the media is enough to make me want to stay away from the Clooney post for a while. To be honest,if I was being painted as a gold digging, having no talent ,wanna be social climber I wouldn’t be to happy about if either. Nor did I think them bring called whore,skanks or sluts.To me It shows a lack of respect on his part towards these former girlfriends and I truly wish he would make it stop.He’ll issue a statement/ or is determined to tell his side of the story about an argument between him and Steve Wynn which no one really cares about but he allows this constant put down of these women who he has chosen to go out with to continue.I honestly though he was a better man then that.

    • primixed says:

      That was the most feminist statement of this thread. Thank you. I hope this is tagged correctly.

    • Liberty says:

      I’m in 100% with this thought too. I can almost see the play sheet and flow chart from here.

  8. paola says:

    The fact they have to keep everything in the media means that they care too much about their reputation. If you’re married and pregnant just focus on your family without talking about ex bfs. Clooney’s engagement shouldn’t bother her at all. No one cared about her before and no one care now.

  9. KJP says:

    I don’t think she’s hung up on George. Even though I’m happily married, if an ex was not so subtly trashing me publicly I would probably feel the need to respond as well. I think George comes off looking much worse in this situation.

    • minime says:

      So true. The way the magazines (Clooney and Amal’s publicist) have been handling this is beyond discussing. Why the strong necessity to bash all the previous women? Women that he openly decided to date and treat as girlfriends and never before seemed to mind if they were interested in (his) fame or if they were not great intellectuals. It’s like he wants to write an all new page on himself where the fact that he never wanted to marry before was actually the fault of the “shallow and uninteresting” women that forced him to be in a relationship. Oh please, spare me, I can’t listen to more of this degrading bullsh** Bah, they looked like they wanted a piece of fame, but he wanted a piece of cake, willingly away from any intellectual challenge (in the same way that Leo only dates models). He should own it and shut up.

      • Happyhat says:

        Yup yup – like, George has been all ‘serious’ for years now. It wouldn’t be THAT difficult for him to have met his ‘equals’ before. As if Amal is the first ‘equal’ he’s managed to meet EVER. Only NOW he’s met his match? BULL – he’s always been dating his equals as far as I’m concerned.

    • Talie says:

      I agree, I think this is more about him basically saying she and the others had no substance. Of course, compared to Amal, it’s true, but not everyone went to Oxford.

  10. Cody says:

    Here is my conspiracy theory -George was dating Amal at the end of his relationship with Stacy and Stacy started seeing Pobre also and what we saw was just how the PR team rolled out the relationship breakup, It was over for quite awhile. They were both dating their perspectives way before the break up was announced. I think both have moved on a long time ago . Stacy ran to Gossip Cop because I would think that it would be hurtful to her new husband and embarrassing for him.

  11. Renee says:

    This is more about George Clooney and less about Stacey. I’ve been irritated by the tone of the coverage of George’s engagement and impending nuptials but didn’t have this feeling of doom for Amal. But then something struck me yesterday while I was reading the comments on the “they want kids as soon as is possible” story. Someone mentioned that George purportedly asked Amal to marry him three times. You know who else was proposed to three times by her future n’er do well husband? Hilary Clinton. Then I thought, oh Amal, you in danger girl.

  12. Anne de Vries says:

    Oh thank goodness poor George has finally found a nice girl after all these terrible exes that kept forcing him to date them…

    Come on, we all knew who had the social (and financial) power in these relationships. It was all on his own conditions. I just find him harder and harder to like these days.

  13. bettyrose says:

    Gawd dealing with him everyday must be like babysitting a high strung 14 year old. My sympathies to his future ex wife.

  14. K.B. says:

    I don’t believe he promised her marriage and babies, but I do believe that she’s “irked” by George’s PR fauxmance. She tried to play him and he’s showing her how you REALLY play someone. No one cares about a knocked up former wrestler, but everyone cares about an A-list movie star. (I do kind of feel bad for her because I think she truly cared about him, whereas the Italian Queen and that Vegas escort/VIP hostess/whatever she was were along for the ride. Not that I blame them.)

    • Lisa says:

      Cannalis seemed pretty torn up about it.. I think Geroge lays it on heavy though and leads these women on, regardless of his “Im never getting married” attitude, blaming the girls for dating him when he chased them from the beginning.

  15. Samantha25 says:

    I don’t think that Stacy wishes she’s still with Clooney. She just has a hurt ego that he’s getting married. I think that’s part of why George got engaged so quickly. Instead curling up in a ball Stacy got married and is having a baby.

  16. Christin says:

    If the timeline of their breakup is correct (and I realize it’s sketchy), then I could understand being a bit baffled and irked if she was interested in a long term commitment with him.

    However, given his string of girlfriends and emphatic declarations that another marriage and kids weren’t for him, why did she believe him (assuming he did mention marriage or kids with her)? She should be happy with her current life.

    I wish Elisabetta would talk. I’m wondering what he told these women.

  17. CJ says:

    I still believe that this is a stepping point into him wanting to get into politics. Nothing less, nothing more.

    • K-rock says:

      CJ I was just about to post the same thing. He’s planning on running for some sort of political position and this one is a smart attorney, not some plump lipped injection filled saline enhanced sexy toy for him to play with for a while until he decides he is tired and bored of the toy of the month and moves on to the next. Don’t be surprised when he runs for office in the next year or so after they get married.

  18. Merritt says:

    The shade being thrown at the exes is immature. If they were so “unworthy”, then that says more about him than them.

  19. MsAubra says:

    Stacey aint thinking about George!

  20. Talie says:

    I don’t know why these women care — if rumors are true about his private activities, then they should just be happy they got out with some cash, jewels and a condo.

  21. dorothy says:

    Still think he’s gay, just saying.

  22. Tx says:

    I’m sure she is irked- because she’s being called a gold digger and unworthy of him. Like so many have said, nobody forced him to date her. Jeeze. It’s really unnecessarily mean of Team Clooney.

    US Weekly’s gossip is pretty reputable… but I’m not buying this story. Sounds like some “info” they got sold from the National Enquirer or something.

    I’m pretty sure that a woman who within 7 months of breaking up with her ex-boyfriend that got pregnant and married to someone else afterwards doesn’t give a crap about what he is doing.

  24. feebee says:

    If the publicist is building up Amal at the expense of his previous “loves” (ha) then that’s a bit naff. There’s no need to belittle the other women. Tacky on his part.

  25. QQ says:

    Hahahaha This spin in the New Clooneyston saga (cause let’s face it, he is morphing into Aniston!) I Believe!!

    Did he give a shit Butterface got married and got preggo by some rando with an unfortunate last name? Not in the least

    Is she salty he now changed his tune when this was the line in the sand FOR HER? Sure!! That I totally Buy

  26. serena says:

    Well, I can’t blame her if she’s irked by this situation. First of all it’s very rude from George part and his pr to call the other exgirfriends uneducated, etc. Even if that’s true, it’s not okay to say that in a magazine since, let’s face it, George isn’t that much compared to Amal (like her they’re on equal grounds). So, I’m feeling sorry for Stacy, she should be blessed and happy at this time of her life and pregnancy without having to worry about anything. there is no need to talk bad about his ex just to make your new flame look better (and she also doesn’t need it), not even is there a need to announce marriage and kids like some aniston-campaign.. please, it’s pathetic.

  27. eliza says:

    I am pretty sure Stacy could give a fig about Clooney or his life at this point.

    It is tiresome how every past girlfriend is supposed to be pining over the most overrated man on the planet.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Amen. I am so tired of the constant build up of this guy who is barely not homely, a so-so actor (the only thing I ever like him in was “Oh Brother, Where Art Though?”.) He’s clearly a misogynist and the decades-long rumors about his “preferences” are enough to make me gag. The man is not hot! None of the women he was with were actually beautiful or successful – they were all coat-tail riders. They thought he was a big deal because he’s rich and they had low-esteem. I don’t care what anybody says, any person who allows themselves to be disrespected or taken for granted for a long period of time, does not have self-respect. He had kept women who came into the relationship being told he would not marry them and he would not have children with them. When a woman agrees from the beginning to allow the man to make all the decision, control the money, where they go, who they hang with, what their hobbies are, etc. it’s paramount to being a kept woman. why is that enviable on either side? What’s suppose to be the big deal about him? I don’t get it.

  28. Ellen says:

    I read the whole story that People ran/George’s publicist wrote, and they actually were super-nice to Stacy. “She was the first girl George dated who had her own life,” that kind of thing. They even implied that she was the girl who inspired him to change his ways. So yeah, I don’t believe she’s irked.

    Larson and Canalis should be pissed, though. What happened to gentleman George?

    • whoozy says:

      Oh this is just ridiculous. What all the exes had in common was they earned living off their looks and average to sub par talents..oh wait, that was a perfect description of George, through his early 30′s. To those of us who don’t follow wrestling, she was as unknown as a Vegas waitress (who also turned him down for months), and if all they ended up with was jewelry, I’d say they were pretty poor gold diggers. Yes, they reportedly all changed him..Vegas girl got him to go green and donate to aids research, Italian whosit got him to adopt dog..you can go back to his living with kelly preston (their enduring love made covers of us and people) to recount all the glorious things they did for him. Yet he dumped them all unceremoniously. Preston said she cried in fetal position for days, Vegas got a phone call that her stuff was being moved out, ..I don’t believe he talked marriage to any of them, including ms Keebler but I also believe women still harbour the illusion of changing a man. His whole turnaround stinks to high heaven and THAT’S why everyone is rolling their eyes over the sudden couch hopping gush his pr folks are carefully feeding the public. It’s bizarre-o world x2.

      • Ellen says:

        I don’t have much opinion either way — I was only trying to report that the People article was very pro-Stacy and seemed pretty insistent that she was NOT in the same category as the other exes. Not my perception, but the one that Clooney’s PR was putting out there.

  29. floretta50 says:

    I guess because George Clooney is rich,famous and handsome most people think he has it all together and that he has the upper hand in his relationship. he is so capable, knows what he is doing, what he needs and wants and gets. His engagement, his fiance years younger, truth be told let’s be honest he doesn’t really know her, he hasn’t known her long enough, different customs and culture and the one thing people pointing to their best asset they believe in fighting for the under dog, this to me is the worse because opposite attract, stick this engagement or marriage with a fork it’s done.

  30. The Original G says:

    I don’t believe that Stacy believed that she and Clooney would marry for a minute. In fact she worked her exit strategy pretty quickly and she is truly much better off.

  31. HoustonGrl says:

    I think when it comes down to it between Amal and Stacy, Stacy got the better end of the deal. She’s the one marrying a young, hot, seemingly loving and committed silicon valley tycoon, and Amal got stuck with George, an old fart with obvious mental problems.

  32. LadyRay says:

    I just came in here to say George Clooney is a big slutbag. How many girlfriends has he had? Can you imagine if that was a woman? She would have been trashed by the media & audience?

    I could care less for his “engagement”

  33. Sarah says:

    I, for one, am really confused by this sudden engagement. I bet Clooney’s getting tons out of it but what about Amal? She’s a mid-level attorney on prestigious clients’ legal teams. However, she’s not indispensable. She by no means is the senior-most person on these teams, and there are probably ten more lawyers – who are as qualified and as bright as her – waiting to snap up her spot. So, from where I sit, it seems like the sabbatical she’s currently on is harming her career rather than promoting it. She doesn’t get any cachet in the legal community for being Clooney’s fiancee. So, back to my question, what is she getting out of it? Why is she doing this?

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Attention and the life of an elitist. Attorneys working for large established firms make great money, but it is cut-throat. Your days are numbered. Turnover is high and firms recruit the grads with the best grades yearly. I don’t care how smart, successful and established you are, the pressure is immeasurable to stay on top or be replaced. If I thought my days were numbered and I was tired of the rat race and all of a sudden, I had a way out that would allow me to live the lifestyle I always wanted and not even on my own dime, I might take it. And, yes, attention. You can’t be with Clooney and not love the spotlight.

    • siri says:

      She’s 36, and has so far only studied, and worked. If she ever had a boyfriend before, it might have been platonic…given her cultural background. She might be a person who only enters a relationship if the future of this has been discussed, and seems clear. Her parents seem to play an important role in this as well. Without that ring, and a clear comittment from George, she might have not agreed to become his partner. I agree, she’s dispensable at her workplace, since she’s part of a team of many. But George, in many ways, is the perfect partner for her. He’s had his wild days, is seemingly mature, interested in politics, has connections, and plenty of time, and money, to actually follow HER around. This to me looks like a relationship of convenience. It doesn’t look like big time love. They know each other for longer than the reported 7 month, and now they simply agreed to be together as a couple. I don’t think it’s a very emotional story, contrary to all the unusually detailed reports. But I’m not sure if there’s not something else going on in George’s case (can’t get Singer out of my head)…so she might be up for a surprise.

  34. The Original Mia says:

    Nice try, US Weekly.

  35. JenniferJustice says:

    I have to preface this by expressing my continued confusion with our country’s fascination with George Clooney. I don’t get it. I’ve never thought he was anything more than “meh” and that’s being generous. He’s not a great actor. He’s not gorgeous. IMO he barely passes plain. He contracted woman after woman to be his kept hooker and they all walked away with more assets, fame and connections than they had coming into it. They were all gold diggers and that’s all he wanted – someone to do his bidding w/no real control or indpendence. At the end of the contract – boom! They were gone. Now he’s engaged to this Amal woman and everybody thinks she must be so much his equal and changed his mind about everything he thought he felt about marriage – I’m not buying it. She has a history of attaching herself to rich older men. Yes, she is smart, successful, has a lucrative career and made a name for herself. However, she is a gold-digger. She’s just not a hooker. No doubt the marriage is a business arrangement. They don’t really even know each other yet, but have some things in common and will be much more powerful together than individually. I’m sure he respects her and their will be mutual fondness and support of eachother’s endeavors, but I don’t beleive they’re in love and I don’t believe he’s getting married for any other reasosn than business, publicity and self-preservation. There have been rumors re his sexuality and a recent blind item (if it is him) would completely explain why he’s doing this now as opposed to a year or two down the road. It’s completely plausible that marrying her is an attempt to quell the gossip mill and protect his reputation should something awfully tarnishing come to light.

    • PHD gossip says:

      what rich older men did Amal attach herself to? I find zero romantic history for her.

    • siri says:

      There’s no information about any dating history of Alamuddin. And I think that’s exactly one of her assets to George. She probably had friends during her study, but lovers? I doubt it. That was not on her agenda, she wanted to be successful professionally. And she continues to pick rather controversial clients, which gives her a lot of attention, and with Clooney at her side even more. So yes, this is business, too.

  36. aquarius64 says:

    Although I believe these women knew what they were getting into (George supposedly lets them know from the start marriage is not on the table) Clooney is a jerk for having his team and the press paint his exes as chickenheads looking for a come-up. He set the terms. And I bet all of them don’t appreciate being dismissed as arm candy/bed toys during their individual rotation, especially Keibler. She just got married after her time with George; now her husband looks like a well-to-do rebound who is not on Clooney’s level in recognition, status, etc. I think the Amal rollout is to show SHE’s not a rebound, but a big step up. Thirsty golddiggers or not, Clooney is being a cad here.

  37. Jayna says:

    Stacy said in an interview after their breakup that they never discussed marriage or children. Another made-up story.

  38. shellybean says:

    I wouldn’t blame her if she is irked. It’s never fun to be the long-term girlfriend of someone who always said he never wanted to get married….and yet he then marries the next woman he’s with. Which means he just didn’t want to marry YOU. It has to sting a little, even if you have moved on.

  39. Caz says:

    Call me cynical…I think George & his PR team learned a lot from the Paul McCartney Heather Mills gold-digger fiasco. George has apparently found someone smart, intelligent and with a job who isn’t with him just to go to Como and awards ceremonies?

    Or maybe George has realised he’s getting old and wants a companion that isn’t needy & attention-seeking.

  40. wow says:

    I wish these sources would just pick an emotion and ride with it. First she’s supposedly” irked” and then at the end the sources are claiming she’s happy that he’s found love. Lol.

  41. Jude says:

    I’ve known some men who’ll date a woman for months-even years-declaring that he’s just “not the marrying kind” or not ready to settle down..only to quickly marry another woman later. A guy could be dating a girl without necessarily viewing her as “wife material.” Happens all the time. Maybe that’s what happened withis former flames; he just viewed them as arm candy or fun dates and nothing more.
