Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa calls Kathy Griffin ‘amazing’

Say what you will about smack-talking funny girl Kathy Griffin, she’s getting the last laugh after her public feud with mama bear Sarah Palin. Kathy, 50, is probably boning the guy we all wish our guys looked smelled like, Old Spice hottie Isaiah Mustafa, 37. We’ve heard rumors that these two are hitting it, and now Isaiah tells US he thinks Kathy is “amazing” and “a force of nature” but adds that he’s single. Maybe he’s contractually obligated to say that by Old Spice so we can still fantasize about him lathering up in our shower while showering us with diamonds.

Isaiah Mustafa — a.k.a. the Old Spice Guy — was coy with UsMagazine.com on Monday about his rumored romance with comedienne Kathy Griffin.

“I think she is amazing!” Mustafa, 37, told Us at Cosmopolitan mag’s Fun Fearless Males of 2011 bash in NYC.

“I think she’s a force of nature. And she’s on Broadway, so if you get a chance, go check her out!”

“But,” Mustafa insisted, “I just happen to be a single man!”

Still, a source told Us last month that Mustafa and Griffin, 50, “are not boyfriend/girlfriend, but they are definitely spending time together and getting to know each other.” The duo began seeing each other several months ago, and were caught canoodling between takes on the set of Glee Feb. 23.)

On Mustafa’s list of requirements in a woman? “I’m looking for someone who’s respectful of my needs because I’m always respectful of the lady’s needs, and that’s pretty much the bottom line.”

He added: “I like brunettes. I like red-heads or gingers. I like blonds!”

The sexy rising star did fess up to bizarre requests from fans of his hit commercials — who’ve demanded he take his “shirt off, strap on a saddle, all sorts of stuff!”

See, he’s acting like he’s not with Kathy and likes all kinds of women so that we’ll continue to imagine him taking us to that thing we love and rubbing our feet afterwards. It’s more of a fantasy for me to think that Kathy scored him, though. It means that there are hunks who don’t take themselves seriously who go for older women who make them laugh. If only he would admit to it. At least he said a bunch of nice things about her. And if they aren’t anything more than friends, the way he handled that question was so gracious.

    I find her pretty annoying for some reason, but I do have to admit that she looks pretty damned good for 50.

  2. Schnauzers!!!! says:

    Wow he’s hot. If she’s knockin’ boots with that hottie…GO GIRL!!!

  3. Rita says:

    He looks like a really nice man. I’m assuming this is all just PR but stranger things have happened.

  4. TT says:

    Aw, how cute is he? I kinda hope this is true…

  5. Kasey says:

    I’m not convinced. No one has said that its anything more than platonic and while I believe something COULD be going on (stranger things have happened-John Mayer/Jennifer Anniston, John Mayer/Jennifer Love Hewitt-basically ANYONE with John Mayer), I have a hard time with understanding “WHY”.

    Clearly, he could have a whole host of women to choose from. I scrolled down after the article thinking with each picture, “Why?” until I got to the pic with he, Kristen and Kathy and I don’t know……looking at him sandwiched between 1 1/3 lovely ladies with that body language and look on his face made me mighty suspicious. With each successive pic I’ve begun to believe they’re BOTH just benefitting from the tabloid fodder. It makes her look young and virile and him relevant and possibly straight. I call sham, just a bit more more respectable than the insult to my sensibilities that was Swiftenhall.

    Suddenly I want some strawberry swirl ice cream.

  7. Granger says:

    I just can’t agree that she looks hot for 50, because she has had SO MUCH work done. I’m glad she freely admits it — and I think she’s hilarious — but I’m much more admiring of older women who are aging gracefully without going under the knife. (Annette Bening, anyone?)

  8. Trillion says:

    He’s yummy.

  9. TQB says:

    I love him and any excuse the tabs find to cover him and show me more pictures and endearing quotes.

  10. K-MAC says:

    She is adorable and I just love him!

  11. sandy says:

    i was rude with this temporary couple last week, i apologize, after yesterday, i love Kathy,(palin) good luck to the happy temp. couple.

  12. Luckycharms says:

    Kathy was on Howard Stern a couple of days ago and said they are not in a relationship per se but have been boning.

  13. guilty pleasures says:

    Kathy Griffin is adorable and very funny. He’s a cutie-patootie, both adults, none of our business!

  14. Hautie says:

    Well they have someone to hang with, when doing the PR thing at events. They both probably get invited to lots of things and need a date.

    Both have a healthy income and can enjoy the company of each other. Good for them.

    Plus I bet he smells real good… 🙂 And that makes him a winner in my book.

    Hmm. I have to say that most heterosexual men I know seem to have an irrational hatred for Kathy Griffin, so I have a conspiracy theory that I. Mustafa might be gay, if he’s so enthusiastic about her. But, please note that I often think people are gay when they’re not. Lol.

  16. flotus says:

    He is truly delusional!

    Here’s a little known fact: A patron of The Abbey – possibly the biggest and most popular gay bar in West Hollywood – informed us that the Old Spice guy Isaiah Mustafa was a bartender there for YEARS before he hit it big. Apparently his charm and hunk factor garnered lots of big tips. But as soon as his commercial came out, he quit and never looked back, and the boys miss him. By the way, he and Kathy Griffin aren’t really dating….

  18. Amy says:

    I think she’s hilarious and this speculation about whether or not he could possibly be dating her is rude. Have you seen this woman in a bikini?

  19. spotchecker says:

    isaiah mustafa is way hotter than todd palin. [probably smells better, too.]

  20. Betsy says:

    Sarah Palin hates her. CHECK.

    Banging the hot Old Spice guy. CHECK.

    Looks fabulous at 50. CHECK.

    It is official. Kathy Griffin is my hero!

  21. GIA says:
