At first we thought rumors of a Sandra Bullock-Ryan Reynolds romance were totally made up by the tabloids, complete with convenient shots of the pair beaming at old photo ops for “The Proposal.” But now we are not so sure.
A source told Radar Online the divorced actress and the separated actor “are very much dating, and trying to keep a low profile.”
They are said to be meeting up at Sandy’s Jackson Hole, Wyo., home, where they can actually enjoy privacy.
“She feels very comfortable having Ryan there with her,” the source said. “Sandy and Ryan are just enjoying spending time together. They have known each other for years and they have a built-in familiarity.
“It’s great to see Sandy with a true smile on her face. Ryan has made at least two trips to Jackson Hole during the holidays, and her friends expect more to come.”
But whether the relationship is truth or fiction, there is one person who evidently does not think they make a cute couple: Scarlett Johansson, Ryan’s estranged wife.
According to Popeater, the actress is none too happy that her soon-to-be-ex-hubby spent New Year’s Eve with his best gal pal.
“Scarlett is a deeply private person, who during her entire marriage was only ever seen and photographed with her husband a handful of times,” a friend of the “Lost in Translation” star told the website. “Now, less than a month after they split, that fool has gone and got himself photographed with [Bullock] on New Year’s Eve of all days. Of course she is devastated.
“Even if they are not a couple yet, this is very awkward for Scarlett. She too thinks of Sandy as a friend and hates the thought that Sandy is on Team Ryan after the breakup — that is if she isn’t already his girlfriend.”
Sorry, girl, but you had your chance. Let the Sexiest Man Alive and America’s Sweetheart do their thing! (Whatever that thing might be.)
Shakira has revealed that she quietly split with beau Antonio de la Rua, the son of a former Argentine president, after 11 years of dating.
“Since August 2010, we made a mutual decision to take time apart from our romantic relationship,” the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer said in a statement. “Throughout this time we have continued to work together hand in hand, have remained close and have kept the details absolutely private until now.”
“There was no big drama, it’s just one of those things where they had been together a long time and realized they were more friends and business partners than lovers,” a source told Us magazine. “It’s sad, but they could get back together. They just needed a break.”
Hello, 11 years? What’s Spanish for, “If he liked it, then he should have put a ring on it”?
Bump or Not?
The Kardashian sisters are used to fielding wild tabloid rumors, so it is no big deal to them that the blogosphere is buzzing with speculation that Khloe — aka Mrs. Lamar Odom — is sporting a baby bump.
“She’s pregnant like every other week,” sister Kourtney told People magazine. (We assume she is referring only to what the tabloids report.)
“What I want to know is what constitutes a ‘baby bump’?” sister Kim said.
But though the reality TV star and her L.A. Laker hubby have been open about wanting to start a family fairly soon, “She’s not pregnant yet,” a source said.
We will keep our eyes peeled.
