    @Texas Blonde: I agree. Gerard is still in the ‘need to show off’ my hot girlfriend phase of stardom, and to be honest, it’s a little sad considering he’s 43. At least Clooney keeps them around for at least two years before upgrading.

  • @@@

    @EURO: Instead of consistently demeaning her and making up crap, why don’t you read and you will see she posted she is just learning Instagram and is practicing with a bunch of older pictures,

  • You wish
  • Shelley Poteet

    @Texas Blonde: True, true. This is one of the reasons I always thought Gerry was how shall I say, immature for his age. He’s into flash and fame and he doesn’t seem humble or genuine any more at all. I’d have more respect for him if he was with someone outside of Hollywood, someone not a model. I think he’s also going for the youngest he can find that fit his image of perfection, too.

  • Texas Blonde

    @dami: I was just thinking this..he can’t even keep them around longer than..6 months? Or maybe some are “kept” but just not “public” anymore?? … i think he hates to be “tied down” just in case he can “play” if the situation arises and not get lambasted as a “cheater” …unfortunately for him right now, because Maddie spilled all the details of their relationship, any woman he is with or seen with right now is going to be him “cheating.” On another note, Maddie looks so much better in photos then in person :( like its night and day

  • Texas Blonde

    I mean fashion photos rather than candid photos I should have said!

  • dami

    @Texas Blonde: I think you’re onto something with the not wanting to be tied down. Notice how he’s a serial dater in Hollywood, not a serial cheater? Smart move by Gerard. But in saying that, he’s too old and some of the stories out there have him looking like a dirty old man, willing to nail anything that moves. Brandi G. handed his as.s. to him good and proper. Have you seen Maddie in person or you’re talking about videos?

  • Haha

    @You wish: Hi Maddie! You awake and perusing JJ like we are?

  • Texas Blonde

    @dami: Yes I apologize I should have said in her fashion photography over her walking down the street and red carpet photos.

  • Braun Suit!


  • dami

    @Texas Blonde:
    Okay thanks. I know what you mean now. The Rome stroll photos were a little startling to me. She looks amazing on the red carpet but without make up, less so. But that’s true of a lot of models and actresses.

  • Dumped

    Regarding Maddie, He just will start getting more and more “distant”…because he doesn’t like anyone disliking him? But her running her mouth in the press CANNOT sit well with him at all…

  • Sookie

    @Alina: Adorable. he probably made that woman’s night :)

  • Alina

    Lots of nice pics. Thanks girls
    “White House Correspondents’ Dinner”

  • dami

    @Alina: LOL! Alina check out our discussion on Gerry in the last two pages. We were just saying that he should like more curvy black women! And then you posted that pic. Thanks honey. She looks so happy.

  • Alina

    @dami: I read … lol!

  • Texas Blonde

    @Alina: Super funny posted at right time. Gerry needs to step away from the models and women who were born just to walk around naked….

  • Alina

    Just a nice pic of Ариэль Vromen from Russian site.

  • Alina

    Sorry,on Russian wrote, Ariel of course! Haha

  • dami

    @Alina: So Ariel took his girlfriend and GB didn’t take Maddie? I know someone in Italy that’s going to be pis.sed off today.
    Also, I’ve seen her before. Is that Ariel’s wife or long term girlfriend? She looks very familiar. Unless, he’s like Gerry and only dates a certain type.

    Good Morning JJer’s. Here’s a photo from last night. Have a good weekend.

  • Alina

    @Can’tGetEnough: Sorry,CGE. I did not see.

  • What a joke

    While Gerry is stuck in his frat boy mentality -can’t believe I’m fu.ucking another model- the women will come and go. When he decides to grow up he’ll more than likely will suddenly show up with somebody outside the usual tall, olive skin, dark hair box. That’s if he ever grows up, else he’ll just become another pathetic Hollywood moron who used to have star potential. In my opinion he’s fast approaching pathetic because it’s very clear he isn’t even capable of having a normal relationship with MG.

  • Can’tGetEnough

    @Alina: That’s okay Alina, I didn’t see your link earlier. LOL I need more coffee! Thanks for posting.

  • Alina

    @What a joke:
    ” he’s fast approaching pathetic because it’s very clear he isn’t even capable of having a normal relationship with MG.”
    Maybe he does not want to have them? But that’s just my thoughts.

  • dami

    @What a joke: ITAWY! If Gerry settles down. And that’s a HUGE if. It won’t be with his usual type imo. He certainly has a physical attraction to tall, dark skinned women, but how many people marry their physical ideal? The missing piece of the puzzle for him is the he hasn’t moved past the physical yet. I’m a few years younger than him and those in our circle moved past that phase nearly a decade ago! Other things start becoming more important when looking for a partner, the older you get. Gerard isn’t there yet.
    But Alina has a good point too. Maybe settling down is not what Gerard wants at all. Although, something in his eyes tells me that he wishes for as much success in his personal life as he’s achieved in his career.

  • Paid bots

    @CHEATER: Thanks for pointing that out. It’s so obvious, I’m surprised no one’s brought it up before. She gets hundreds of “likes” a day, which is impossible, as even truly famous people’s likes don’t go up that much every day. Only a handful of posters, always the same people, and yet hundreds of likes? I don’t think so.

  • GFW
    The pre-dinner party at the W was a proper venue with the White House and its beautiful surroundings in clear view.
    Have to agreed Gerry does not look too into it. May he passing through a phase or is depressed? Guess he can’t wait to head out of town? No worries, think are still shuttles to NYC hourly from the airport.

  • GFW

    There is one single factor that determines every aspect of our happiness, fulfillment, and success in life including our ability to develop meaningful relationships, have a successful career, be persistent, and have the confidence to reach all of their dreams, our self-esteem.
    Low self-esteem has its origins when we are young, typically before the age of six. It begins with someone saying or doing something that causes a child to get the idea that he or she is unlovable, unworthy, imperfect, flawed, or defective in some significant way.
    Whether the child buys into an unkind word or deed, perhaps experiences a bullying episode or an abusive situation of some sort, or misinterprets what others said or did in such a way that has them feel less than, not good enough, unlovable, or like they don’t belong, this initial upset has children begin to believe there is something wrong with them. They then scan for evidence to “prove” to themselves that their initial fear was correct…and, of course, they find plenty of episodes that reinforce that there is something defective about who they are as a person.
    Over the course of years and decades, they gather hundreds or thousands of pieces of evidence that they are imperfect, unlovable, and not worthy of all the good things life has to offer. Before long, they accept this negative self-image or the negative voices as fact and soon become resigned to believing that’s just how it is and there’s nothing they can do about it!
    Wrong. There is something they can do about it, and it is never too late. Never. We talk about this for a character in my story, young Jesse. What’s so crazy about this is Jesse and Brittney are at the zoo. The National Zoo!

  • Don’t Make Me Defend Her!

    I know I’m inviting trouble, but here goes: G was not Piers Morgan’s “Plus One” – that was a joke. CNN issued an invitation at the behest of Piers Morgan. Freddy is G’s “Plus One” (Yes, the plot of OHF is topical and it’s doing very well at the box office – although I got the impression PM was more impressed with Machine Gun Preacher than OHF- and I swear I heard PM’s voice in one of the OHF news broadcasts, but have yet to see his name in the credits) G has another tie to CNN – he presented an award at their CNN Heroes Ceremony in 2011.

    With reference to MG – I don’t get why anyone would assume they are not still a couple. They’ve been together for a year and yet the “in public” photo ops have been very few. They spend a great deal of time apart. That could be the secret to success for them – who knows? I don’t. He’s been dropping hints for months (while she’s been more direct) about the “starting a family” thing. I don’t believe she’d be saying these things unless she knew he’d be okay with it. I do believe there’s more to her than meets the eye. Anyone who can speak 5 languages is no dummy and despite what anyone here might believe, G is an intelligent man and if he’s actually going to have a relationship with someone, she’d have to have a brain. I don’t know what you heard in the Stern interview, but I heard pride in his voice.

    What I believe, however, has absolutely no relevance to HIS life. What I KNOW is that whether he marries MG or he doesn’t, whether they have kids or they don’t – it makes no difference to me. I will still think he’s still sex-on-a-stick. (I also happen to think he’s a very good actor and if there are appendages that needs to be amputated they are his agent/mgmt team.)

  • the reality is

    @Kristen: No he is thinking how do I get rid of this witch who constantly embarrasses me publicly including using my own mother in a pile of BS story. It does not speak well of her future as a girlfriend let alone anything else.

    This chick will go to the press everytime she is not happy. That was obvious from the very beginning. People here had her pegged within 24 hours of getting her name. Too bad Gerry and his people did not do their due diligence. When you are famous you got to check out who you get involved in or this kind of nightmare happens.

    She’ll be writing the tell all next. Though she may consider the fact that she is already making herself unmarketable to the next famous guy she will need to latch onto unless maybe some old ones will take her back, eh Dragos.

  • GFW

    Isn’t that the woman from Downton Abbey? It’s a nice mix of celebrities.
    I’m of the (personal) opinion that Gerry needs a woman who sets a pace just before him to keep him going. I feel he needs a lot of inspiration on a daily basis. He possibly could feel he’s hard to be around (with women) when not wearing his Gerard Butler mask so feels comfortable with Freddy because he (Freddy) knows him well and accepts him as is… like I do.
    He seems to have a real problem believing in anything lately as if he’s been horribly disappointed.
    The Devil wants you to do bad things then it has a grip on you. (Universal you) Remember, there is the Devil and there is God and He’s far more powerful.
    If Gerry could remove his masks with women from the get go, he’d have better chances finding a partner of the heart. Someone to move like a twin with him. Someone higher up on his register of thoughts. He’s a very active mind. He needs to feel something growing inside him.

  • the reality is

    @Don’t Make Me Defend Her!: You bought the PR schtick I see. Gerry tailors what he says to the movie he is promoting. PFK was all about a man settling down so the girlfriend just dovetailed nicely with that didn’t it. When promoting the action hero movie, the girlfriend was barely mentioned especially after Howard Stern and his PR people got smart except that Rome farce which was likely an obligation he had to her. The reality however is things like the Rome farce and her ramblings to the tabloid press all make him look like a fool at this point. She is not beneficial for his career and that is what is the most important thing for him. I hope he is able to be free and has learned from the many mistakes of this past year or two.

    Like you are no good at faking it so no more fake photo ops.
    Check into who you are dating before you get serious. Just a few minutes on google and you’d have known to avoid this one.
    Hire some smarter people for your team, using your personal life as a PR tool just blows up in your face every time. Ask Kim K.
    And lastly shady in shady out. I leave it to you to ponder that.

  • G

    My favorite color is brown. g

  • G?

    @G: Or as G would actually write ‘my favourite colour is brown’.
    It would certainly appear to be so, G. Minus the odd blonde, of course.

  • GFW

    Thanks for the laugh! I nearly spit out my eggs all over my new laptop though.
    So, let me see, the latest Hollywood trend to not spend time with whom you’re dating? Really? Would that work for you?
    who is totally into African red pepper who now puts it on just about everything… including her eggs :o)

  • GFW

    Hey G, I thought it was green? What to believe, what to believe?

  • http://justjared lolita

    I don’t think he didn’t want to be there, if he didn’t he could have come up with an excuse. I don’t know about the rest of you but I have to get a sense of the people that I will be mingling with before I see how I will behave. If it is a bunch of stiff shirts or some people who make me feel at ease being there.
    I agree, he looks good but the color of the suit doesn’t enhance his look.
    I don’t under estimate this man in anything he does. He may act goofy at times but he is far from being a push over and he is strong willed enough to know what he wants. He is not afraid to take chances even if they don’t always work out like he thought they would.

  • http://justjared lolita

    Thanks, CGE and Alina for all the wonderful news and pics you bring here.

  • leila

    What’s wrong with you? why talking like this about him?
    I will pay my life to have him whole! And I will not share him. He is really adorable, and no one made fun of him.

  • leila


  • saturday

    Great pics!!! He looks mellow in the brown/beige earth tones…very organic, I mean orgasmic, lol! ;)

  • Really

    @Don’t Make Me Defend Her!:

    Although I get what your saying but to be fair I just get this as a normal relationship he’s apart for most of the time and when they do get together Theyl holiday together or spend a week at the most and then they’re apart for a longer period! If I was committed to someone I couldn’t be that long away from them it’s not healthy in a relationship! A baby is a huge responsibility and if he can do that than fair play but I don’t think he has that stability factor in him if I’m honest! He does say a lot if things while promoting a movie and yes I agree she prob checks by him what to say in interviews but I think she said she would want kids immediately if she had the chance as she has a fondness for them and as for marrying she prob generally meant it as she knows he prob isn’t ready that’s to save face saying its too early! If he wanted kids n she does there’s nothing stopping them! He defo doesn’t look like a happy man lately you can tell by his face!

  • Just saying

    I think if she and GB want to have kids it’s really silly to be broadcasting it you don’t really discuss private matters to the public! I just think he seems to have lost the plot because he was always so guarded and secretive about his personal life and seems to have done a 360 degree turn and become so public something really doesn’t add up here
