Is Kelly Rutherford cougar-pouncing on cub Chace Crawford?


Thus far, we’ve pretty much avoided covering Kelly Rutherford’s never-ending divorce drama, and I hope it will remain that way. But one thing is for sure – Kelly is ready to move on with her life, and Star Magazine is reporting that Kelly has her eye on none other than her Gossip Girl costar, Chace Crawford. Chace is 24 years old – Kelly is 41. So you can guess how Star started their report – as some kind of “Cougar Alert”.

Kelly Rutherford is a total cougar: she had her claws all over Gossip Cirl costar Chace Crawford during QVC’s Feb. 13 New York Fashion Week bash!

As Chace gave an interview, Kelly snuck up behind him and ran her hands through his hair.

“This is one of those guys,” she said. “If you go out with him, you don’t have to worry about dressing him, right? You want to undress him!”

As bystanders tittered, Kelly continued to hand all over her boy-toy. Chace is no stranger to older women. As Star reported, he had an affair with 14-years-older Shauna Sand years ago. Kelly, 41, has only three years on her!

Yeah, the Shauna Sand thing makes me think that Chace would be up for it. Of course, it also makes me think that he has a specific type, and Kelly isn’t it. And why, for goodness sake, would you ever want to be with a dude after he’s been with Shauna Sand? That would make me dry-heave. That being said, I do like the idea of Chace and Kelly’s romance blossoming at a QVC event. That seems apt.

Oh, there are photos of the two of them flirting with each other at the event! Yeah, they both look into it. It’s on, cougars!

    I guess being a bitch to her ex-husband does not age you well.

  2. XOXO says:

    Well in an interview 2 years ago, Chace was asked who he wants Nate to end up with and said Lily Van der woodsen, so i’m not surprised AT ALL. both are hot so why not?

  3. nita says:

    ok so she looks way older then 41 IMO. Also, you can NOT compare her to Shauna Sand. Sand is beautiful and looks young. Kelly looks awful! Oil of Olay honey, seriously… AND what is up with her hair in this pic? My god did she just pop out of the shower or did she slather greese into it? ick!

    Shaunda Sand is Young & Beautiful? “nita” I think I just threw up in my mouth a little after I read that. Kelly Rutherford looks 41 to me, she’s just not pumped full of botox who know’s what else. Do I think she should be pouncing on Chase Crawford? If both are willing why the heck not? I certainly would not kick him out of bed for eating crackers if you know what I mean.

    I’ve never seen her show, only read interviews but she came off as totally entitled and clueless. She named her son Hermes after the comapany because she loved their scarves and bags so much.

  6. juiceinla says:

    That brown/plum eyeshadow makes her look older than 41, and it looks like a crazy lady applied it.

    She litterly grew up across an ally way from me on Balboa Island .. was a very pretty girl… laying out in the sun on the beach in from\nt of her house where she lived with her white as a ghost model mom and stepdad cute little brother. Snotty then… Barfing on the streetlamp after drinking too much in high school

  8. bubbles says:

    good for her. if you could you would!

    Ugh why would he go out with a snobby, self-entitled, twice(ugly)-divorced woman when he could have any girl he wanted??

  10. Madchen says:

    I don’t know whether it’s makeup, surgery, lighting, or nature, but she has really changed from her days on Melrose Place. I can’t really put my finger on what has changed either, but the change wasn’t for the better. Her eyes look closer together somehow.

    It’s always “he said, she said” with these things, but it sounds like they are being childish and vindictive in the custody and visitation matter. I would be surprised if it were just one of them.

    No one wins. The kid can’t love one without feeling like he’s hurting the other and ends up resenting both of them in time. I’ve never seen parents like this change — it’s like “War of the Roses,” with children. So sad.

  11. Madchen says:

    That being said, if she wants to hunt a few cubs, more power to her. *grins and shakes head*

  12. Ellen says:

    I love her on GG. She’s witty and funny and self-possessed.

  13. Tess says:

    She’s got the IQ of a pork rind. Saw her interviewed once. She wasn’t trying to come off like a dumb blond for the laughs. Just dumb as a post.

    Oh gosh no!!! I Love her in Gossip girl .. but in a relationship with chace .. no 🙁 they arent a good couple!!
