Who Broke Up with Who Here?

What you see above is a photograph of Steve-O, famous for stapling his testicles to his leg and vomiting, and Elisabetta Canalis, famous for being George Clooney‘s ex. The two started dating in January, and apparently, things were getting a little serious. That picture up there was taken when they went on a vacation to Rome together back in February, that’s not something you do with someone you’re just seeing casually, is it?

But it doesn’t matter now, because it’s all over. No more Stevabetta or Elisabett-O. No chance of beautiful but somewhat deranged babies. No, because Steve-O dumped Elisabetta. Really, that’s how things happened.

From Radar:

Italian beauty Elisabetta Canalis really is unlucky in love.

Following hot on the heels of her high profile break-up from ladies man George Clooney, the Dancing with the Stars alum is once again nursing a broken heart — this time following a split from Jackass star Steve-O, is exclusively reporting. was first to report back in January that the unlikely couple was hooking up, and now we can report all the details on their split.

“Steve-O dumped Elisbetta over her partying,” a source close to the situation tells “He is extremely serious about his sobriety and did not want to be dating anyone who could jeopardize that.

“He still really cares about her but can’t risk relapsing back into his old ways, so he had to cut her loose. He has hooked her up with some women that he knows to help her try and get back on a stable footing again, and she has been attending meetings.

“Steve-O said he thinks she’s committed to getting control of her life again and that he will help her do that, he wants her to control the partying for her own sake. But, in the meantime he needs to distance himself from her.”

How great is that for Steve-O? He went from being absolutely crazy on all sorts of drugs, like scary crazy, and really, really unhealthy to being able to break it off with someone he truly liked to protect his sobriety. I think that’s just awesome.

On the flip side though, how bad does that have to suck for Elisabetta? Getting dumped by George Clooney, sure, it’s got to hurt, but he’s George Clooney. You can’t keep that man tied down forever. It was never a possibility. But getting dumped by Steve-O? Imagine going from one of the most beautiful men in the world to Steve-O, and then having Steve-O go “you know what, nah.” How do you come back from that?

George Clooney’s Ex Is Hooking Up with Steve-O

You guys remember Elisabetta Canalis, right? She dated George Clooney for a while, she was on Dancing with the Stars, and then she creeped everybody out when she called her relationship with George “more of a father-daughter relationship.” Other notable achievements include posing nude for PETA and posing nearly nude on the beach. Are we caught up?

Good. Because super hot Elisabetta Canalis went from hooking up with that fine man you see above to hooking up with this:

But how? How do you go from George Clooney to Steve-O? How is that even possible? I’m asking those same questions right now, you guys. Even though Radar gave me the answer, along with the original scoop:

Dancing with the Stars alums Elisabetta Canalis and Steve-O have been getting quite cozy as of late, a source tells RadarOnline.comexclusively.

The reality stars met through mutual friends and hit it off straight away and have been spotted dining and canoodling around Hollywood.

“Steve makes Elisabetta laugh, and that’s her weakness. That was her favorite thing about George Clooney-he was always cracking her up and playing practical jokes on her,” the source shares. “Believe it or not, George has a little Jack Ass in him, and ever since Steve-O got sober, he’s very sensitive and introspective, so Elisabetta is getting the best of both worlds.

“They’re not serious yet, but they are definitely hanging out, and hooking up. They are trying to stay under the radar, so they mostly hang out at her place and watch movies and order in. But they also hit some low key restaurants around her neighborhood too.”

Well, ok. I’ll buy that sober Steve-O seems to be a hell of a lot more manageable than not sober Steve-O, but … it’s still Steve-O, you know? It’s still the guy that has penis tattoos and it’s still the guy that makes a living rolling around in shit. And that guy still has the same voice, that awful, indescribable, horrible voice. And I’m saying this as a fan, even. As a girl who enjoys watching Steve-O be himself, I cannot, not ever, imagine “hooking up” with this dude.

What about you guys? Did Elisabetta downgrade? Would you ever hook up with Steve-O?

Quotables: George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis Had A Very Healthy Relationship

“He has been a special for me, and very important, just as a father would be. Between us there was more of a father-daughter relationship. I was unable to clarify this up ’til now.”

- Elisabetta Canalis describes her perfectly healthy, not at all creepy relationship with her ex-boyfriend, George Clooney.

This sounds great, right? It sounds like paradise, actually. I know that there have been times in my life when I’ve been dating someone and I’ve thought to myself “you know what would make this romantic relationship even more special? If we had more of a father-daughter dynamic going on.” And that’s why this little revelation makes me a little angry, because Elisabetta and George had that, and they threw it all away.

You don’t let something that special go, Elisabetta. Once you find a partner that you see as a parental figure, you grab on with both hands, and you hold on tight. Better luck next time, girl. You live and learn*.

*Why yes, I did thoroughly creep myself out with this whole story.
