Talking points

Stacy Keibler

Clooney’s wrestling lady

George Clooney is reportedly rebounding from Elisabetta Canalis with ex-wrestler Stacy Keibler, according to Us Weekly. “It’s more than just a fling,” a source says of the pair, who have known each other for about four years. “They’re basically exclusive at this point. They like each other’s sense of humor. Obviously they’re both physically attracted to one another.” But the new couple apparently plans to keep things private when it comes to their relationship: “I don’t see her hitting any of the red carpets with him,” the source adds.

Jolie is ‘bored’ with England

Angelina Jolie is reportedly so bored in England while Brad Pitt films “World War Z” that she’s considering packing up the kids and heading back to the U.S. before he’s finished, according to Us Weekly. “She’s not pleased being at home while he’s on set,” the source says. “These are the longest hours he’s spent on a set in a while, so it’s just her and the kids with not much to do.” While Jolie has been giving life in London a go, including taking son Maddox and her older children to see “Wicked” over the weekend for his birthday, it’s unclear how much longer she’ll be interested in sticking around.

Winehouse home to be rehab center

Amy Winehouse’s
family is reportedly planning to turn her $4 million north London home into a rehab center and the offices of the Amy Winehouse Foundation, according to the Sun. “They don’t want to rent it out, and if they sold it they think it could attract the wrong kind of buyer as it was where Amy passed away,” a source says. “Everyone is united in making it a success — the label, her family, friends and management. [Her father] Mitch has big plans and needs a nice environment where employees will be able to carry out their work properly.”
