Us Weekly is reporting that the actor and the “Dancing With the Stars” contestant are an item. “It’s more than just a fling,” said an unnamed (naturally) person close to Keibler, who spent July in Europe, apparently sans Clooney.

When the actor split with girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis in June, Celebritology’s Jen Chaney graciously offered the actor 10 ladies to consider dating next. The list included Pippa Middleton, Kate Winslet and, my favorite choice, Amy Sedaris. All good options!

But now, if this rumor turns out to be true, it seems Clooney has gone and dated someone we didn’t suggest. The lady-killer’s heart wants what it wants. (Or doesn’t, since we’re not quite sure we believe this is true.)
