George Clooney & Rande Gerber have been on a boys-only roadtrip for weeks


For the past week, Rande Gerber has been Instagramming photos from a “boys only” road trip through what looks like the American Southwest. It seems like they’re traveling along Route 66, stopping along the way to take beautiful scenic photos – go here to see Rande’s Instagram. The roadtrip crew includes Rande, George Clooney and what looks like at least two other dudes (it could be three or more others though). All of the dudes are on their motorcycles. I think I see Grant Heslov in one of the photos?

According to People Magazine, Rande and George “reportedly” kicked off their roadtrip in Jalisco, Mexico, which is also the site of their Casamigos Tequila distillery. This roadtrip might be just an extended promotional tour for the tequila company, I’m not sure. I’m also not sure why George is shilling tequila so hard these days? Is it because no one wants to see his movies anymore, very few people are buying his love story and tequila is literally all he has to offer?

Speaking of The Great Alamooney Love Story… is this suspicious? So many loved-up displays, so much work on Amal Clooney’s part to stay near George for months after their wedding, and then she suddenly flies to London and stays there for weeks on end while George goes to Cabo with Rande and then they do a boys-only roadtrip? Granted, that kind of schedule suited George’s previous girlfriends. But I’ve got to wonder if George and Amal already needed a little break from each other. Who do you think is more annoying?

    What happens during the boys road trip, stays at the boys road trip. When the beards are away, the boys will play.

    • epiphany says:

      Exactly. I find it hilarious that some actually buy the Alamooney Love Story. I don’t think Clooney is gay; rather, I tend to think of his sexuality as fluid – and I think he and Rande have had a thing for a while. In any case, Clooney’s sexual proclivities have nothing to do with his marriage,which was formalized with all the passion of a rental contract. Cooling off period? Please, this arrangement is about as cold as it gets.

      • Bridget says:

        I don’t know about Clooney and Rande – Rande is a notorious skirt chaser. I think it would be more likely that Rande’s trolling for strange on the trip.

    • kcarp says:

      Do you really think she is a beard? Granted I don’t buy the love story but I just don’t know if I buy he is gay.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      This is Clooney’s real honeymoon folks….

    • QueensGlo says:

      Clooney IMO is BI and probably most of Hollywood knows it.
      The Amalooney marriage probably has another year left.
      George already looks like he’s going back to his old ways.
      I’ll bet that In a few more months he’ll be quietly sneaking into Las Vegas again for some good old Clooney fun.

      I know a guy that use to play in George’s basketball games years ago and he was convinced George was bi , he said it was just something understood.

  2. Jayna says:

    It looks like fun. Nothing like a great road trip.

  3. Absolutely says:


    • mary simon says:

      Sleepover at every emergency room and urgent care center along the way as George’s back gives out from riding all day.

  4. jen2 says:

    Now they are apparently touring US Route 66. That is a great trip, so many wonderful kitschy things to see. Well, the movie (and marriage) promotion is over now, and the movie did not succeed, so….

    George just seems to be so much happier with Rande and it is a long standing relationship. It must be great to have a friend like that.

    • Citresse says:

      I really wanted to do the US Route 66 trip but so far only got to do I-40 and I-80 coast to coast. I must say both times very interesting though.

    • laura in LA says:

      Route 66 is one of my favorite parts of Americana…

      jen2, I don’t believe you can actually drive 66, only parts of it, though I-40 runs alongside it for most of the way.

      Since I moved here years ago, I’ve always lived near it (Santa Monica Blvd). And the no. 66 itself has a lot of significance for me.

      So all my usual snark aside, all I can say is that I hope George and his boys are having a great time…

      (Away from Amal!)

    • QueensGlo says:

      Rt 66 runs towards Las Vegas, if they go through Barstow. Lol
      George up to old haunts again maybe? Lol

      • nicole says:

        My dream american holiday would be to fly to LA and drive along the pacific coast highway(big sur) to San Francisco. I am from Ireland and I have never been toAmerica but Im still dreaming I will do that trip someday.

  5. Lilacflowers says:

    Because a lengthy motorcycle trip is great for a bad back.

    • Tessa says:

      I thought the same thing! I have a terrible back. You couldn’t pay me to spend time on a motorcycle.

    • PunkyMomma says:


    • Lilacflowers says:

      Cue pictures of George grimacing in pain and wearing some sort of brace.

      • Esmom says:

        Exactly what I thought, too. Lol.

      • Christin says:

        Some of the people I know who openly complain of back issues seem oblivious to the likely effects of their extreme sport and exercise activities. Particularly those over age 50 who still want to do everything they could do 20 years ago.

        Case in point right here, I suspect.

  6. lisa2 says:

    The other guy looks like his Producing/Writing partner Grant Heslov. The Dailyfail has pics of him supposedly leaving a screening of Tomorrowland. And I’m sure we will get the thread for Amal out in London in her lace jumpsuit..

  7. Jem says:

    Honestly this bro story right here is more moving and romantic than the whole magical wedding/perfect marriage crap…

  8. Abbott says:

    They should film it Oprah & Gayle roadtrip style. Probably sell more tickets to that than Tomorrowland.

    • Jayna says:

      They should. LOL I loved Ewan McGregor’s long motorcycle road trip with his buddies that was filmed as a series titled, Long Way Round, and was a DVD and a book. Of course, they visited 13 countries, so a lot more to watch.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I could watch Ewan ride his motorcycle around the world daily for years. George, not so much.

      • Outeropinion says:

        That program was so good. There is another one, too, called “Long Way Down”. Both are fantastic, for anybody who is into travel shows and docs.

      • Pinky says:

        “Long Way Down.” Sounds like something I’d like to do–or go–on Ewan. But I digress….

  9. Jen43 says:

    I wish I were with them. It looks like great fun.

  10. Dhavynia says:

    Meh, people with money and spouses far away need to keep themselves entertained. I don’t believe the beard theory but I would probably believe the wife swap

    • QueensGlo says:

      George is BI,,,,, always has been IMo
      Amal is a bag of bones, no way those two are doing much of anything I would bet.

  11. MrsBPitt says:

    I thought George had chronic back pain? I can’t imagine riding a motorcylce on a road trip would be very comfortable! Although, maybe at this point, it’s less painful to him, than trying to pretend to be in “the perfect marriage”!

    • jen2 says:

      Well I think it is clear that pained look on his face folks kept talking about was for some other reason, not an old back injury.

  12. jinni says:

    So was the back pain/ injury story all a lie in order to help get a Oscar nom for Syrianna or something? Because like a lot of you guys I’m wondering how someone with chronic back pain can go roadtripping on a motorcycle. Something about this doesn’t wash.

    • Jayna says:

      Seriously? The man had a serious injury and operation, but it was ten years ago. He had a couple of bad years before getting the pain under control. That was years ago. He talked about how he finally got it back to manageable and feeling more like his old self. He doesn’t carry on about his back pain now for sympathy. He has downplayed it, in fact, I suspect for his career. It did flare up again a year ago with ongoing pain and was at Duke University. I don’t know if they helped him or not. I’m sure he is paying the price for this road trip but it’s worth it to him not to give up everything he loves to do.

      • jinni says:

        I’m not saying he has to be on permanent bedrest for the rest of his life, just that going on a motorcycle road trip seems like an unnecessary risk when considering his problem. Especially when he could do this whole trip in an RV and get the same or a very similar experience.

      • anon33 says:

        Yes, seriously. Given his age and the severity of his injury, his back pain will actually only get worse with time as his spine naturally degenerates around the injury/surgically corrected area. Time is no friend to a back injury.

        I work in disbaility law, and if we had a petitioner saying they have such severe pain that they can’t work, but then went on a weeks-long motorcycle trip? Nope. That’s 100% inconsistent. Now of course, George has never claimed an inabiltiy to work, but in general a patient who has had the kind of surgery he has would not be able to engage in this type of activity for prolonged periods like this. The vibrations alone *should* be hell for him. That’s why people are questioning the veracity of his statements about pain.

      • angie says:

        Maybe he’s riding in a sidecar.

      • Olenna says:

        angie, STAHP! LOL!

  13. Maya says:

    Road trip? Is that what you call secret gay hookups these days?

    • mkyarwood says:

      Yes! I think Lainey has repeated blinds about this, but guesses have been Brad Cooper and Jakey.

      • Izzy says:

        I’m leaning towards BCoop & Leo.
        Lainey has alluded to their ‘friendship’ and how they both have to have models hanging around for appearances.

    • nicole says:

      I dont think Randee is his secret boyfriend at all, the one im most suspicious about is his hairdresser.

      • Cinderella says:

        I totally agree that it’s not Rande, who I think is a diversion.

        Whoever it is must be extremely close to him and in it for the long haul. (Now I have to check out the hairdresser.)

      • nicole says:

        His hairdressers name is Waldo Sanchez, he has been with George since 1995, he met him on the set of ER. I remember reading an article on George in the DailyMail, a good couple of years ago, this was when I was a huge fan and I had never heard of any gay rumours, but I was kind of shocked what they wrote, they practically hinted that he was his secret boyfriend and seemingly he travels everywhere with him and they stay in the same room together. I also remember seeing a photo on google images on set of the descendents and he had his arm around George, also he was with George when he went back to nyc for that comic con thing, when George was supposed to be on his honeymoon. I know maybe they are just really close friends, but I find it a little suspicous.

    • QueensGlo says:

      George …….. worst kept secret in Hollywood.

  14. Luca76 says:

    Well clearly Amal is working and to some extent this I work for George so I don’t think it’s a biggie.

  15. als says:

    Normally speaking, in a relationship, people don’t have to be tied one to the other, although it seems to be the norm nowadays. Actually, it’s good that the partners maintain autonomy.
    However, George Clooney and his chosen one, Amal, are not in the ‘normal’ dimension, so….who knows what it means in their universe.

    • KellyBee says:

      True but while pomoting Tomorrowland Clooney said they don’t spend more then 3 days apart and thets already flow out the window.

  16. lisa2 says:

    Seriously.. all the comments about George’s back on previous thread.. I said before George talks about playing basketball with his friends. How competitive he is. you don’t do that with chronic back pain.

    And do they all have the exact same bike.

    • Jayna says:

      I think he does have a bad back, but that it flares up with bad episodes and then evens out to bearable and he lives his life. My sister has a bad back that this is her reality. She refuses to let it stop her from things she loves, and so does those things when her back is manageable. Sometimes she pays for it later with a few bad days. When it flares up, though, she is in tremendous pain and I feel for her, and it can last quite a while because she gets it back under control. She says those episodes leaving her feeling like an old woman. She injured her back in her late 20s. She has herniated discs in her low back and resulting nerve pain down her legs She admits that doing back exercises and stretches are crucial to keeping herself as healthy as possible.

      • KellyBee says:

        Stacy at the end of her and Clooney relationship said they had more of a bother sister relationship. Not soon after that Clooney talk about his bad back and how he always in pain.
        So why would he go on a weeks long bike trip which would make matters worse.

    • boredblond says:

      He hurt his back filming syriana..talked ad nauseam about the pain until he had surgery..said all was well after that..this was a decade ago. I don’t know many people over 50 who don’t have back trouble at some point.

    • sasha says:

      Yeah, George’s back and neck problems seem to come and go at will, whenever it suits him.
      It always gives some of his commenters (including his PR team) something to harp on, though, you know, to deflect or garner sympathy when convenient.
      NO ONE with severe pain takes a lengthy bike excursion like this one.
      A quick spin, sure. Hate to say it but it’s ALL smoke and mirrors with George.
      To see the glee on his face when an interviewer buys his shtick, hook, line and sinker, is utterly priceless!

    • QueensGlo says:

      I think his back pain flares up at times, then goes away, it’s during the times it goes away that he can do more active things.

  17. scottiegal says:

    He always spends time with the boys before the 4th of July. It’s usually in Lake Como. Maybe he is mixing the boys week with the tequila promotion. I don’t see a problem with married couples spending time apart. My dad would take fishing and hunting trips and my mom would spend time with her sister.

  18. Esmom says:

    If that photo of George on the bike is current, this is the best I’ve seen him look in quite a while. Hitting the road seems to agree with him.

    • chaine says:

      that was my thought, DANG, he is looking a lot better. messy hair, Jeans and a T-shirt make him look so much more youthful than the fuddy-duddy suits and schoolboy side part he’s usually seen wearing at glam events.

    • boredblond says:

      That’s an AD..shot last week in mexico..there were pics of makeup/hair people redoing him for the bike ad..did notice he wore ring in ad, but don’t see one in his rande shots.

  19. DogMom says:

    This sounds like a very cool thing to do with your boys. I would love to do something like this and am totally jealous.

  20. G says:

    Rande and Cindy seem very happy together. I don’t think that because 2 guys are close they have to be gay. Same with women. It’s so narrow-minded.

    • Jayna says:

      Sad, isn’t it?

    • Jellybean says:

      I couldn’t agree more. I encourage my husband to maintain his friendships and if his time off corresponds to a real heavy work load for me I will push them to take off for a bit. All it takes is for you to trust your partner and want them to be happy. One of his friends even lived with us for a few months, so I guess if my husband were a celebrity I would be branded a beard, which is why I have no time for blind items.

    • GPSB says:

      Thank you for saying this.

    • QueensGlo says:

      I think Cindy and Randi are very happy together. I think Randi is straight and truly loves his wife.

      I think it’s George who is not straight, I think he is bi and it’s kept hidden by Hollywood
      I believe George has a boyfriend and insiders in Hollywood know who it is.

  21. GPSB says:

    What’s wrong with him going away with guys, rumors aside? Would everyone be snickering about an all-girls road trip the same way?

    *shrug* I like hitting the road like this, and don’t see what the big deal is; I’d be more suspicious if he and Amal continued to smother each other in public appearances trying to sell everyone on their love.

  22. Jaded says:

    Nothing wrong with a guy’s road trip – my ex did yearly guy trips and I would do regular girl trips. No biggie. No homo hookups. No beards.

    • QueensGlo says:

      I believe Randi is straight.

      I think George is not and has a boyfriend somewhere, but it’s not Randi. Jmo

      I think Randi and Cindy have a real marriage ,they go way back to early mid twenties of knowing each other in NYC.

      George a I think is hidden. Something just seems OFF with George. I just don’t believe George is straight.

  23. lowercaselois says:

    I thought I read somewhere, that George said, they have agreed they wouldn’t spend more than a week apart. I have taken the route 66 road trip and it is more than a week. There are pictures of them in the Grand Canyon, that is a few days right there.

    • KellyBee says:

      You did, I said the same thing in my above comment . While promoting his marriage aka Tomorrowland last month George said they don’t spend more them 3 days apart.

      My guess is George forgot he said that doing his promotional tour.

    • Citresse says:

      I think it depends on whether Amal decides to join them but it sounds like boys only (and boys will be boys) and besides she’s busy with a new case.

    • Jayna says:

      I would think he’s talking in general no more than seven days apart for their life as a couple. At least common sense tells me that. I certainly don’t think he was thinking he had to put a disclaimer in there about a guys’ road trip vacation probably planned.


  24. just me says:

    My boyfriend’s sister was a real party girl back in the 90’s and said that she partied with George Clooney for a couple days. According to her, she stayed in his hotel room for a night and slept on the couch. Her exact words about it were “And I swear to God, the girl he was having sex with in his bedroom was yelling ‘Who’s your daddy!! WHO IS YOUR DADDY!!'”

    Makes me wonder who was being penetrated…of course this is all hearsay, though. Who knows.

    • Jayna says:

      Shhhhh. You’ll ruin all the “he’s gay” with his boyfriend “Rande” posters’ day on here by posting about him banging random chicks while out partying. He only has contract girls for show. LOL

    • sasha says:

      HAHAH! SHE was yelling, “Who’s your Daddy!”.
      That’s bloody hysterical!!!!

      • QueensGlo says:

        Must have been a guy in the room with the,. LOL
        George probably paid her to yell that from the bedroom. LMAO
        Who says that seriously in the throes of hot sex? LOL

  25. Loves gossip says:

    According to Lainey, George is bisexual and has a thing for “chocolate” men (Cuba and Chocolate). The bad back is because he likes it “rough”(not sure if he really hurt his back on a movie set). Love her or hate her, Lainey’s blinds are pretty accurate. Imo, I also think both Rande and Cindy are also bi and have an open type marriage.

    • Jayna says:

      LOL” Not sure if he really hurt his back on a movie set.” The bad back is because he likes rough sex with men according to Lainey? Excuse me while I laugh. It’s stuff that like that, dismissing a severe injury on set, that makes her blind that he is bi-sexual with a preference for chocolate then side-eying. He could be bi for all I know. It doesn’t mean I fall for silly blinds like rough sex.

      The guy had a freakin’ serious injury, but a gossip columnist says it’s from rough sex with guys, not the on-set injury. Yawn

      “George has opened up about the pain he suffered after cracking his head open during a torture scene in Syriana in 2005, revealing it took doctors weeks to figure out exactly what was wrong with him. It was only when pal Lisa Kudrow’s neurologist brother discovered fluid leaking from his spine that medics realised just how serious his condition was.

      In a candid new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The Descendants star reveals: “We started doing these things called myelograms, where they shoot contrast into your system and you can see what’s leaking out. I had a two-and-a-half-inch tear in the middle of my back and a half-inch tear in my neck.

      “The doctors did these blood patches, where they tie you down to a bed, and you’re awake because they have a long needle and need to know if they’re touching your spinal cord, and they take blood out and shoot it directly into your spinal column to try to get the blood to coagulate in those spots. I did about 15 of those over 15 days. It’s like getting a spinal tap every day, and you’re awake… I thought I was going to die.”

      Clooney also tells the publication he struggled with the strong pain medication he was prescribed after doctors fixed the problem during a marathon surgery session on Christmas Day 2005.

      He adds: “They’ll hand you a giant tub of Vicodin, which is not a good drug for me; I had a lot of stomach pain and I really didn’t like the high it gave me. Then there were other drugs. I was on morphine for a while, which created this horrible anxiety where I really thought I was in trouble.”

      Clooney reveals he finally turned to therapy: “I went to a pain-management guy whose idea was, ‘You can’t mourn for how you used to feel, because you’re never going to feel that way again’.”

      He also admits he still struggles with the pain from his 2005 on-set injury, but it has become much more manageable.The actor explains: “I’ve gone from where I can’t function… to, ‘I’ve got a bad headache’… My ears will literally pop and my head goes apes**t. But I’m scrappy.”

  26. Snowpea says:

    To Jayna: Id like to point out that none of us really know anything about these people! To keep defending Clooney is somewhat futile because for all we know, the man might like having sex with goats but we’d still be none the wiser.
