    Congratulation Madalina you again killed this thread.

    this video takes away the attention and killed best comments of the charity screening!!

    @Shorttermmemloss: I feel sorry for her if she thinks he loves her. I thought for awhile that he was committed to her but he is so off with his “I’m single” comments, who knows? She has a lot invested in this relationship and maybe she doesn’t yet know he’s a cad.

  • Doing the Honors

    @Clamsie: Apparently you’ve never had morning sickness. It last about two minutes, you puke and it’s over. It doesn’t send you to bed. You really believe people are stupid here, don’t you? Shows how dumb you are.

  • Doing the Honors

    @Clamsie: What does she have invested in him? Living in his house for three months on a croc infested lake and diddling him? Then an expensive trip and a few clothes should cover that. Oh, and don’t forget the ad. She’s been compensated for services rendered. No one claims to have a gf then comments a few days later he’s single and flirts with everything around him. That is an insult to the gf, I don’t care who you are. I think he’s using the old Butler system of breaking up and she’s not falling for it. He’s got a live one on his hands this time and he better move to plan B real soon before it’s too late.

  • justsayin’too

    just an observation but these two do not look like a couple in love. Paps or no paps, they have absolutely no chemistry going on. I find that odd considering they are both very attractive people and you would think they would give off a lovely vibe together, but they don’t! Time will tell of course, but I wonder if after the ‘single’ comments she came storming over to the US and he didn’t know she was coming and that is why it looked kind of strained. The same thing happened with LC on that set in Detroit.

  • Doing the Honors

    I’m getting sick of the “supermodel” moniker that’s been given to this woman too. No one has ever heard of her until now and only G’s fans know who she is. It’s an insult to legitamate supermodels like Heidi Klum, Gisele B., Christy Brinkly, Cindy Crawford, etc. She’s a “print” model in Europe to draw attention to mags. Now she’s shagging her way in to HW or at least she hopes. I’m not buying it.

  • Strings of Lights

    He ” acted” like he was upset about being papped. MG made arraingements with Amy to either walk away with her or ride with her. The security guards were confused by all of it. The way he acted was childish and fake. It has not been unusual for pop candies to go to the back door and get photos. I think G acted like and idiot. Everything was normal until he saw the paps. Amy had his CP in her bag. He could of just got his CP, they could have got in the car and left. Just think, if it all went down this way we wouldn’t be discussing this. It was all for”drama” on his part. He knows what he is doing. His personnal life is based on drama. I have now seen through him and how his whole career is a complete act. MG understand the drama that goes into self promotion. They are 2 of a kind.

  • Doing the Honors

    @justsayin’too: You are absolutely correct! My feeling too. There is NO chemistry between them at all even when they were smooching. It seems staged. He seems cold and aloof around her and she seems like she’s just marking her territory like a B in heat! LMFAO!

  • OMG

    When she walks out of the door the first thing she does is notice the paps.She looks straight at the camera and even waves the soccer balls at the paps. What’s the betting she told the paps she’d be there.

  • Strings of Lights

    Remember how upset he acted when he was papped with his family eating out doors. Like the paps didn’t know where he was. It’s all an act—he’s a phony. Peeps said then it was weird the way he was acting then.

  • Doing the Honors

    @Strings of Lights: By your opinion then, they deserve one another.
    -
    I am so disappointed in him right now! I always wanted him to find someone someday, maybe not like him but someone opposite who he would respect and everyone else would too, especially his fans. I fear he’ll knock her up and then she’ll high tail it back to Italy and pull him along on an emotional roller coaster. He really, really needs to steer clear of this one and I’m not afraid to say it! I smell disaster!

  • @Doing the Honors

    LOL Clamsie.

    I assume you are watching a different video DtH since in the one I see, she is being very unassuming and even a little shy.

  • Doing the Honors

    @OMG: Yes and how symbolic it is to have some “balls” in a sling! LMAO! I remember the photos of LC on the set of MGP and how he looked uncomfortable. He was walking out ahead of her and seemed annoyed. At the time I thought it looked bad and later found out she just showed up and that proved to be the kiss of death for her and LC is nothing like MG. Why does Gerry pick women who are so needy? I think it’s because he goes for the looks first then falls for the line of the needy and desperate woman, always complimenting and stroking his ego. They may even play hard to get at first but it’s a trap. Only other women can spot the type and maybe a few experienced men, like Leo D.

  • @Doing the Honors

    That is not the case for all pregnant women. My mom had morning sickness nausea the entire day, everyday until I was born and she never threw up. Everyone is different. Some women don’t even have morning sickness.

  • Doing the Honors

    @@Doing the Honors: Talk about an act!! She’s got that “look at me, I’m unassuming and shy” look down pat! No “shy” woman lives with a man for three months and poses half nude. You need to stop making excuses for her. What she is, is obvious and if G continues to see her or becomes more serious with her, he’s doomed.

  • Two scenarios

    I agree that this is trouble, any way you look at it. If he wanted out in his usual passive-aggressive way, that’s not going to work with this one. It’s going to get ugly, because she’s not taking the hint. Even worse for him if she showed up unexpectedly to mark her territory. Second option is that this is an arrangement, and both are acting out a part, so to speak. It could be a quid pro quo to promote both of them. If so, that’s also bad, because his fans don’t like her, and if it continues he will just alienate a good chunk of what’s left of his fan base. If he has a brain, he needs to get out of this soon. And her showing up around sick kids last night was outrageous. I just hope that little girl doesn’t get sick from being in his arms around his face like that.

  • Doing the Honors

    @@Doing the Honors: So he’s screwed. I don’t really care at this point.

  • @Doing the Honors

    @Doing the Honors: Thank the Lord. Does that mean you are going away now?

  • Strings of Lights

    Gerry is still trying to play the s/exy man, I’m available card on his fans. That is why he is still doing the flirting thing in interviews. He doesn’t get that he is getting older and that there is nothing wrong with having a gf, so the fans can fantasize over what they are doing together, or what they would do to him if they were in her shoes. He needs to change his mo and just act like a man that can have a long term relationship with someone. I think at this point it would improve his career. Come on folks to just drive away and leave his gf standing there. I don’t care who his gf is. How can anyone be attracted to a man like this? Now we are talking again about how this is a set up relationship. Either hs is just an abuser of women or this is a set up to cover up something else about him. IMO

    Last night.
    After thought: After all that Abella has been through as well as her parents [father with the same cancer and loss of son], I doubt that they would compromise their daughters health in any way, shape or form. Nor would her doctors if they felt being out in public would be unsafe for her.

  • Totally Useless Information

    I hate to burst anyone’s bubble, but GB treated Bianca much the same way in public even to the point of walking off the Red Carpet ahead of her–no stopping and letting her go first, putting his arm around her to guide her to the front, none of that loving kindness you see with other couples. He is not on a leash, but I do believe he keeps many others on a leash and when one pulls too hard, he just gets another. And that is why he acts the way he does in public with Little Maddie here in the US. Remember he is in his territory in LA. I’m sure he has no desire to piss off his others because Little Maddie won’t always be there. So he might not be out prowling when she’s not there, but he does have a phone. Several of them I’m told.

  • Seriously

    The single comments were taken from an old interview. They were not current.

  • Yep

    @Strings of Lights: I still haven’t ruled out the “something else about him.” I know it’s an unpopular view here, but something’s not as it appears.

  • DocP

    @Strings of Lights:
    I watched it again, he was looking the opposite direction when they came from around the pillar. She then walked up to the one security man and seemed to ask him something. Next she seems to have a ticket and walks up to the valet as to pick up her ride. At no point did she ask Gerry . She seemed to say something to him but he put his head down and was staring at his phone. So she then started looking at hers. This is the strangest relationship. I swear it looks like she was all on her own. He didn’t even look at her. Don’t get it, looks like he’s embarrassed of her and doesn’t want to be affiliated with her. Weird, weird, weird!!!

    @Two scenarios: “Second option is that this is an arrangement, and both are acting out a part, so to speak. It could be a quid pro quo to promote both of them.”
    -
    I would think if it was arranged to promote them both, then why are they going back to hiding it? NO. This seems one sided to me. I’m usually pretty good at sniffing this kind of thing out and I think she’s doing her “work” and it’s to land this man or at least get herself out there using him. I think she’s responsible for this “sighting”. She gave it away when she walked in to the garage and the first thing she did was look square in to the camera lens and gesture with the balls. Too obvious.

  • Strings of Lights

    On another note—I thought Noah Lomax was so cute—-he was trying his best to act proffesional and pose for the photo op. He may be one child star we can watch grow up in movies.
    I also wish the best and give prayers to the little girl and her family. I want to watch her also grow up and over come her health issues. She and her family are very lovely people. Gerry did a good job having this charity event.

  • Gerry? I doubt it ………

    @Doing the Honors:
    At least LC has a legit job! He’s problably with MG because its so easy with her! She wants the shortcut to exposure and is getting it via an affair with Gerry. He apparently just needs steady sex on demand. No complications with women who demand more than that or blabber mouthed C listers. Any woman with a backbone wouldnt put up with even the way he flirts with other women. Sure men will always admire a pretty woman but Gerry goes way overboard! This is not the kind of relationship MOST women would settle for. Truly devoted boyfriends/husbands dont act that way with other women or stay the kind of things Gerry says. MG will tolerate his behavior and actions as long as shes getting what SHE wants out of this. It will most likely take a much richer man or more famous one with alot more channels to sway her aways. Can you imagine if Clooney came into the picture? More people know who Clooney’s ex Elzaibetta Canalis is than who Madi is. Canalis got a gig on that hit TV show with Timothy Bottoms AND Dancing with The Stars here in the States! i bet if George Clooney made Madi any kind of an offer romantically she’d have NO PROBLEM jumping from one to another again!

  • Strings of Lights

    MG may have shown up unexpected. With all the comments he has made in interviews lately and also to say google her name leads me to believe she made an attempt to get back to him. Probably why flying coach if 1st class was full when she made last minute arraingements to see him. If she did call the paps it was to put him in his place that they still have a thing going on. I still think he acted like an idiot.

  • Two scenarios

    @Doing the Honors: Good points. Although he could be “acting” which would account for all that lingering in front of open car doors. I do think she calls the paps all the time. I think she did it in St. Tropez, too.

  • http://www.jj.com Clamsie

    @Doing the Honors: You sound completely unglued. It’s easy to see you’re one of the jealous haters who hasn’t a chance in hell of landing even a glance from old Gerry. LMAO.

    FYI, I had morning sickness with my first child and I was nauseous most of the day for a couple months. You sound pretty ignorant. when it comes to claiming you know what it’s like. You’re probably a man because you don’t sound female. Pregnancy and morning sickness are not the same for everyone. Some people breeze through it and others have a hard time.

    At any rate, Madalina looks positively glowing. I hope she’s carrying his child. I’ll LMAO if she is. All the more fun and drama ahead on the Gerry campus.

  • Strings of Lights

    After looking at the video again—when he saw the paps he acted like he was into his cp, but I think he was busy thinking of how he was going to handle the situation. Then MG bailed him out by talking to Amy and walking away. Then he stood at the car door and talked to them about what their plan was. I still think he acted like a jerk!!!

  • Doing the Honors

    @Two scenarios: I think he was lingering at the doors waiting for her to get in more then anything else and she just kept walking around. Notice she didn’t duck in to the car right away. Oh no! She needed to strut around a while first and be seen!

  • http://www.jj.com Clamsie

    @Two scenarios: Do you honestly think he gives a damn whether his fans like her or not? All that matters is that HE LIKES HER. Or loves her.

    The day he starts worrying about what his few hundred remaining fans think is the day the world ends. His career ended long before Maddie came along and it’s his choice to fall for her or not.

  • http://www.jj.com Clamsie

    @Yep: That’s why I’ve said for years that he could be gay. If he is, he’s been able to completely fool many for a long time. It wouldn’t be the first time or the last a celeb remained deeply closeted to keep up the appearance of a single horny skirtchaser.

    There’s always been something off about him.

  • hmmmmm multiple phones

    @Totally Useless Information: No wonder he favors cargo pants and he needs a murse. Sometimes I think his problem is he lives most of his life on that darn cell phone or those darn cell phoneS . No wonder he has no time to concentrate on acting. Busy sexting and texting his agent if any decent scripts have come in yet. They don’t call em Crackberry for nothing.

  • Marty

    Always one notch behind Lindsay Lohan.

  • cleverbridge

    @Strings of Lights: Jessica Biel spoke very highly of Noah on Conan O’Brien last night. Conan spent most of the interview drooling or faux drooling, isn’t he married?

  • Two scenarios

    @Clamsie: Either he “cares” in the sense that he wants the fans to think he’s still single, or he wants his other side pieces to think he is. One or the other. That’s why he’s still hiding out with her here in the states. They only went public once, in France. He’s still hiding her.

  • Doing the Honors

    @Seriously: Doesn’t matter if they’r current or not. They were used for some reason. He hasn’t spoken of her since he’s been back in the US. Why the secrecy when he’s here and not over in Europe or Canada? Doesn’t make any sense.
    -
    @DocP: What do normal couples do when they part ways?? They kiss! Even if they’re getting in to separate cars and meeting up again later! It IS a strange relationship.

  • Strings of Lights

    @Two scenarios:

    He has been more public with her than once. He told MJ and other interviewers about her. Just last week he admitted to having a gf. I think he thinks he is a self important. I can’t believe any woman here would tolerate being treated that way he treated her last night. Seems his drama acting is more important than anything. He was also with her at the charity event. She is either really in love with him or she is just stupid.

  • cleverbridge

    @Doing the Honors: He forgot the umbrella and camera angle was awkward.

  • cleverbridge

    @Strings of Lights: He probably does his best acting off screen.

  • Doing the Honors

    @Clamsie: You need to crawl back in to your “shell” and leave me alone. You’re starting to go off the deep end yourself. Why does it concern you how I feel? I can’t help what I see and I am entitled to my opinions. If you think she’s pregnant, so what? It wouldn’t be the first time or the last that a woman tried entrapping a man that way. Get a clue.
    -
    And for the record, I have no designs on this man whatsoever. I’m not so delusional that I believe I would ever land the likes of someone who is an unattainable celebrity. The fact that you reduce me to that level shows that it is YOU who is delusional enough to think about something like that yourself and perhaps holds out hope of your own.

  • wake up

    If this is the love of his life, why did he drive off first? Why didn’t he wait till her car was there? It was like I can’t wait, see ya later.

  • Come on now

    @Clamsie: Don’t be silly, Clams. You were being so much more realistic of late, why muck it up now with all this pregnancy silliness? I think you know that’s a ridiculous notion. She’s was or is filming a movie, and is at the beginning of what she hopes is her superstardom. Do you really think she’s going to get pregnant and settle down now?

  • DocP

    @Doing the Honors:
    I agree with that. I always kissed my boyfriends goodbye when we parted. Something smells sour in Scotland. The whole scene looked awkward. Also why didn’t he mention her in the Miami teleumundo interview ? I don’t think the guy knows how to break up like normal people do and she isn’t the type of girl to take rejection lightly. I am starting to wonder if this isn’t a PR arrangement.
    I saw Skyfall last night, Daniel Craig looked pretty rough. I didn’t think he w that old, this is only his third Bond movie. I really enjoyed it, I hope they keep Craig for some more Bond movies. Sean Connery is still my favorite but I think Craig does a good job.

  • Doing the Honors

    @Clamsie: If he were gay, somebody would have come forward with him flirting or trying to pick up a guy by now. Gay men aren’t as easy to stay quiet about a thing like that as women are. If he’s gay, he would have shown evidence of it in how he acts around males. I’ve seen photos of this man oggling women from a far to the point his tongue was practically hanging out! Never has a guy solicted that kind of reaction from him. You’re grasping.

  • Strings of Lights

    @cleverbridge:
    ITAWY—-If he acted this good in his movies he wouldn’t have a problem with his career. Now that I have seen how phoney he acts in interviews and in his personal life I have a whole new opinion of the way I see the man.
    I know who MG is but I also think he is enjoying her chasing after him. After all he wouldn’t be too disappointed to see her because he is due for his s/ex fix.

  • Er…

    @Doing the Honors: You might want to keep an open mind about that. Many stars past and present who are gay stay closeted, and will go to great pains to do so to keep their careers. That’s especially true if they are attractive to women and play mostly romantic leads in their films. Many marry and have children. It’s a business deal for them. And gay men are less likely to talk than women, actually.
