In a recent interview, Elle MacPherson was asked about her interest in Chinese medicine, and she admitted to consuming powdered rhino horn. She said that it tastes “a little bit like crushed bone and fungus in a capsule,” but it “does the job.” Ok, let’s dissect this real quick.
Rhino horns have been used to treat a variety of ailments for centuries, and although research has shown that the horns don’t contain any real healing qualities, they are still extremely sought after. The demand for rhino horns has led to the animals being on the verge of extinction. If you’re so inclined, you can find some graphic photos of rhinos who have had their horns cut off slowly bleeding to death. Then there are all the cases of poachers killing people who are attempting to protect a rhino.
But hey, by all means, Elle, go ahead and exotically treat your headache or whatever. It makes you look totally interesting.

Except Guy seems to be more interested in women his own age, specifically the 44-year-old Elle MacPherson, with whom he had dinner in London on Monday. The two left the restaurant separately.
Elle is twice-divorced herself, and has two children with Arpad Busson, who’s now engaged to Uma Thurman. Arpad was close friends with Guy and Madonna when they were together, so that’s probably how Elle knows Guy.
What a tangled, tangled web!
