George Clooney’s new GF Elisabetta Canalis might be his stalker
George Clooney has been with his new Italian piece, Elisabetta Canalis, for about three weeks. For George, that’s what constitutes “a relationship”, considering most of his girls are around maybe one night at most. So, three weeks in and what do we have? Glowing reviews of the new girl, to the point where some (me) are already drawing comparisons with Elisabetta to Clooney’s last “relationship” with cocktail-waitress/ “model” Sarah Larson. Star Magazine has an absolutely glowing piece about Elisabetta this week, while In Touch seems concerned that Canalis has been stalking Clooney for the better part of two years:
Many women fantasize about dating George Clooney, but gorgeous Italian TV personality Elisabetta Canalis made hers reality – although it took her a couple of years.
According to Tuscany-born private chef Michele Gargani, Elisabetta has been after George since the summer of 2007. That’s when he sat at a table next to Elisabetta, 30, at All’Angelo in LA.
“Elisabetta was with a group of friends, and they were all speaking Italian,” Gargani tells In Touch. “She went on and on about how she loved being in Hollywood, but that her dream was to meet and date George Clooney.”
Gargani adds that when he asked Elisabetta to pose for a photo with him, she even asked if he knew the movie star! “It looks like she got her wish!”

It took me a second to figure out that “Michele Gargani” is a man’s name. So Elisabetta bet this man, Michele, and all she could do was talk about George Clooney (who she had never met) and how much she loves Los Angeles. I’m starting to get a sketchy vibe off this girl.
Star’s profile of Canalis is kind of grossly sycophantic. I definitely got queasy during parts of it, especially at the mention of Canalis “playing hard to get” (yeah, right) and how Clooney thinks she’s a “sexy tomboy” (code for “Clooney thinks her boobs need to be bigger”). Oh, and apparently her “best asset” is her “fiery spirit”. What do you want to bet that Clooney thinks Elisabetta’s best assets are her T&A?
Lavish dinners, breezy bike rides, cozy nights at his waterfront estate – George Clooney knows how to make a woman melt. And he’s currently pulling out all the stops for gorgeous Italian TV host Elisabetta Canalis!
“George thinks she’s amazing,” a pal tells Star. “She played hard to get at first, and he loved that.”
Not that hard, apparently. The two first met in late July at Rome’s Hotel Majestic, and were soon spotted sneaking kisses in an Eternal City eatery.
“Their passion set fire to the restaurant!” gushed Italian magazine Chi.
George, 48, then invited the brunette bombshell to his Lake Como villa, and they toured the area on his Harley.
It’s no wonder that the A-lister fell so fast for Elisabetta – she’s been called “the most beautiful woman in Italy” by Chi – and her 2003 topless calender was one of the country’s best sellers! Elisabetta’s fiery spirit may be her best asset. (She had a tempestuous four-year relationship with soccer star Christian Vieri.)
“George loves her accent and, of course, she’s hot,” says the pal. “But he also adores that she’s very adventurous. He calls her ‘a sexy tomboy’.”
Is it enough to convince the notorious ladies’ man to keep her around? “Look, George is a playboy. He loves women,” the pal admits. “He may be really into Elisabetta, but it’s tough to tie him down!”
So I’ve revised my opinion about this girl – I think she’s going to be around long enough to be on Clooney’s arm throughout the fall. I’m not sure if she’ll make it to awards season, but she’s definitely putting her back into it, you know? Here’s hoping Elisabetta at the very least gets some new clothes out of the deal.
