Who Broke Up with Who Here?

A photo of Elisabetta Canalis and Steve-O

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?

Highlights from the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen

So I finally watched the Roast of Charlie Sheen yesterday—it aired Monday night, yes, but I was busy—and I have to admit this Roast was pretty good. Not Bob Saget good, but then again, what is?

There was a real likelihood of the evening falling flat. How do you parody a parody? How do you make light of wife-beating? And who invites Mike Tyson to do stand-up, even? But the jokes were scathing, and the Roast bit to the quick. I’ve rolled my eyes at Charlie Sheen‘s recent I-Don’t-Have-a-Job Humble Pie Remorse Tour, and I don’t like him, but he sure did take his lumps like a champ. (Some critics are saying the jokes weren’t mean enough, but seriously, how many more jokes about Sheen ruining his kids’ lives did we really need?)

Warming Glow has compiled a comprehensive guide to some of the best zings of the night. Here’s a sampling.

Comedian Anthony Jeselnik, to Charlie Sheen:

- “Every minute of your life looks like the first two minutes of SVU.”

- “The only reason you got on TV in the first place is because God hates Michael J. Fox.” (Cut to actor Richard Kind, in the audience, having a heart attack.)

Jeffrey Ross:

- “If you’re ‘winning’, this must not be a child custody hearing. The only time your kids get to see you is in reruns. Don’t you want to live to see their first 12 steps?”

Jon Lovitz:

- “How much blow can Charlie Sheen do? Enough to kill Two and a Half Men!”

It’s Cool, Bam’s Probably Going To Be Ok

A photo of Bam Margera

Despite being hit on the head with a baseball bat Friday night, Bam is already out of the hospital and at home.  I guess when you get into everything that Bam does, you bounce back more easily than other people.  According to Steve-O, fellow Jackass star, he was in intensive care overnight, but he thinks “he’s gonna be ok.”  There’s still no word yet on what caused the fight in the first place.

You can look at pictures of Bam being attended to by EMTs here if you’re into that sort of thing, or you can watch Bam and his friends parody some Real Housewives. Hint:  go ahead and watch the parody, it’s pretty lovely.

Steve-O is Still Stapling Things to His Nuts

It’s so great to see that some things never change.

Steve-O recently appeared on Lopez Tonight and showed his support (and his penis) for Kate Gosselin during her stint on Dancing With the Stars.

Aw, hey, Kate. You’ve got a fan, even if he is kind of unhinged, but then again, aren’t they all?

I’d love to see these two shacking up in the near future. It’d make for great press. And it’d be about forty steps up from Jon Gosselin, which isn’t saying a lot. At all. Ever.

Perez Hilton Turns 31

Perez Hilton turns 31

Perez Hilton held his 31st birthday party yesterday at the Viper Room nightclub in West Hollywood. For someone who talks a lot of trash about celebrities, making juvenile comments about their love lives and appearances, a lot of them showed up at his party. This means that I can still hold out hope that Clive Owen will turn up at my 31st birthday party, no matter how big of a bitch I am on this blog.

Paris Hilton & boyfriend Doug Reinhardt, Amanda Bynes, Steve-O, and a very different looking Ashley Tisdale (holding hands with a lady friend) were in attendance, amongst others. The Jonas Brothers “rushed over” from the Kid’s Choice awards to sing Happy Birthday, and Christina Aguilera did her best Marilyn Monroe impression of a breathy “Happy Birthday Mr. Perez-ident.”

“I’m not thrilled with the number 31,” Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, said on the pink carpet in front of the Viper Room nightclub. “But I am super excited that, right now, I’m happier in my life than I ever have been before.”

Hilton bragged that the first gift he received was from “High School Musical” heartthrob Zac Efron.

“He sent me a bottle of champagne to my hotel room, which made me squeal like a little school girl,” he gushed.

Party attendee Paris Hilton seems to have contracted Victoria Beckham’s “Every Day I Look More and More Like a Robot” disease. Note the cut on boyfriend Reinhardt’s lip, a souvenir of Friday night’s scuffle with a bodyguard at Fontainebleau.



“My urge to stay sober, today, is way stronger than my urge to get fucked up. I truly pray to keep it that way … I’m going door-to-door from rehab to a sober house. Woo-hoo!”

Steve-O, who’s currently in treatment for alcoholism and drug abuse.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m actually proud of Steve-O right now.
