New couple alert: Kathy Griffin & Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa?

Funnygirl Kathy Griffin, 50, may have scored the guy we all wish our man could be, Old Spice hottie Isaiah Mustafa, 37. She tweeted a photo of the two of them together a few months ago, an things may have heated up since, although Isiah’s rep says they’re “just friends.” Is that “with benefits” because you know Kathy would love to break off a piece of that. Hell just about any woman would.

A source tells me that Griffin and Mustafa first met months ago. Maybe it was back in August at the Creative Arts Emmys, where they did a joint interview on the red carpet with our own Kristin Dos Santos? Not longer after that, Griffin tweeted a pic of the two of them with the post reading, “A gift from me 2 u. Here I am with the super hot Old Spice Guy. Feel free to photoshop ur face over mine.”

Our source says they started spending more time together within the last month or so. The source wouldn’t describe the relationship as “romantic,” but says, “They’re getting to know each other.”

Mustafa’s rep tells me, “Isaiah said they are just good friends and have a blast hanging out.” The former football player was most recently linked to Scream star Neve Campbell.

Mustafa was not only spotted at Griffin’s Trevor Project benefit concert in L.A. in December, but the two were also together earlier this month at Cher’s final performance of her Las Vegas show. I actually saw them at the Sin City airport the following morning hopping on a flight back to L.A.

Mustafa was also with Griffin at the Grammys last week. Then last night, they were spotted sitting together and chatting at the Costume Designer Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

[From E! Online]

I think Kathy is hysterical and I don’t know much about the Old Spice guy other than an interview or two I’ve watched with him, but he seems down to earth and like a decent guy. As E! mentioned he was last linked to Neve Campbell but that was a couple of months ago. If these two are going to the airport together they’re probably more than just friends. For Kathy’s sake I hope this is happening and good for her!

This interview is from last August:

    Ginger and Brownie. Love it.

  2. Tammy says:

    Don’t understand the attraction to this woman, is spewing hate speech attractive?

  3. jc126 says:

    Somehow, I can’t see him seriously dating her.

  4. Cha Cha Loca says:

    I don’t believe it but he is yummy, delicious.

  5. samihami says:

    Surely he can do better. Much, much, much better.

  6. MiMi says:

    Aw, they look cute together. Love Old Spice guy!

  7. Kim says:

    Did I just awake from a coma and it is really April 1st

  8. guesty says:

    double ew.

  9. Rita says:

    I find kathy very off-putting. Rosie did her routine years ago, and that got old very fast.

    Sell your old spice stock.

  10. KlondikeBear says:

    “Don’t understand the attraction to this woman, is spewing hate speech attractive?”

    Yes. Yes, it is TREMENDOUSLY attractive.

  11. Jezi says:

    I have to agree with @klondikebear Kathy is hysterical. People take themselves way too seriously. You should be flattered if she jokes about you. She’s absolutely fantastic. The old spice guy is funny. I saw him do an interview on the Ellen Show and he’s extremely witty.

  12. Isabel says:

    NO ME GUSTA!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. Maritza says:

    I doubt this will last, she is a workaholic maybe she’ll fool around with him but nothing serious will come of it.

  14. Quest says:

    Really…is that what Old Spice can get a guy? But she is seriously funny and I envy her if she is getting all these benefits… he is hot.

  15. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    He’s hot,

    She’s not.

    The End.

  16. njnick says:

    Men are going to stop using Old Spice if the “reward” for using it is Kathy Griffin.

  17. k says:

    This might be another one of her publicity stunts. But if it’s for real, good for both of them.

  18. Feebee says:

    First impression is that this is a publicity stunt for both of them but I’ve got to admit that my first reaction whenever I see Kathy with a new man.

    Whatever it is I hope they have fun with it and leave friendly.

  19. Rebecca says:

    I can’t believe some of these comments coming from WOMEN no less. Not liking her comedy is one thing but saying hateful things because she’s not a hollywood beauty, dear god that’s bad. You should be cheering on the fact that she’s with a hottie( even if she’s really not ) because I’m going guess you all are not Halle Berry clones.

  20. lucy2 says:

    Nope, I think he can do better. I don’t pay much attention to her comedy, but her voice irks me, and I think she looks a little plastic-y in the face these days.

  21. notsoanonymous says:

    I agree with with #17 that this reeks of one of her publicity stunts. Not that I mind it – she kills me!

    Sorry I need to go read my Friday Dong post. Old Spice Guy is a fine looking man, but I’m way more into Taye Diggs.

  22. Ally says:

    @ Rita…so true. He is pretty hot, though.

  23. UnAttributableSpoon says:

    I have a totally inappropriate crush on Mustafa…he’s delicious and has such a great attitude. And he’s funny, which is very important to me.

    Kathy is hilarious. She’s so sharp and smart. It would be interesting to see if this is anything beyond a publicity stunt. I think that after her last husband, she deserves someone who is awesome.

  24. JenJen says:

    Much better than that slob she was married to! I hope she does meet a nice guy after that loser, user, Matt.

  25. Ruffian9 says:

    Dear God no.

  26. Stephanie says:

    DON’T DO IT ISAIAH!!!!!!!

  27. motheroftheyear says:

    Get it, Kathy!

    If it’s PR, right on. And if it’s something more, good for them.

  28. truthzbetta says:

    Hell to the no. Tell that annoying surgicized muppet to get off my I. Mustafa.

    You can’t beat that scent off, even with Old Spice, and he’s needed for too many lady fantasies.

  29. Easy Ed from Virginia says:

    I thought Kathy was a lesbian ?

  30. Kloops says:

    I love Kathy. I know I probably shouldn’t. There lots of compelling reasons regarding how she crosses the line, but nope, still love her. However, she’s not overly attractive and this dude totally is. More power to her if it’s legit but they’re probably just friends. (Friends with benefits?)

  31. luls says:

    the way she styles her hair is horrible! she looks 20 TIMES CUTER and YOUNGER with her natural hair texture!! (top pic)

    PS: those 2 would make a cute unassuming couple! i luv red+dark together 🙂 (me n my bf)

  32. angela says:

    Something’s not right here. Who would want to do that woman? She’s a freak.

  33. sandy says:

    that’s sad.

  34. Confuzzle says:

    Cute couple 😀

  35. lacy says:

    Kathy deserves to have some a that! She works too hard and is too damn funny to not be getting it on with someone! I’m not into this guy but whatever, Kathy… it to it.

  36. Hakura says:

    God, he’s cute, isn’t he? I just love that ridiculous smile he uses in the commercial. (& his voice >.> )

    They’re definitely an odd couple (if they are one). Kathy is far from my favorite person, but I’d really be impressed if she managed to nab this guy. More power to her, I say. (Does she count as a ‘cougar’ in this scenario? Not sure if they’re far enough apart in age to be considered one.)

    Either way, Kudos!

    Let it be real please god let it be reeeeeeaaalllll.
