The Word: Did Elisabetta Canalis go from George Clooney to Steve-O

On so many levels, this doesn’t make sense.

We heard the Elisabetta Canalis/Steve-O rumors a couple weeks ago, but we were willing to ignore them. After all, what would George Clooney’s recent ex want with one of the “Jackass” guys?

As it turns out, dating him.

In a video from TMZ, the “Dancing with the Stars” contestants are caught leaving a salon together in L.A. before escaping to Steve-O’s car. Not only is she dating Steve-O, she is demurely declining to comment in paparazzi central — the B-team Hollywood equivalent of moving to a good school district and buying a minivan.

Thing is, Steve-O doesn’t look too bad these days. He’s no longer putting fishing hooks through his cheek and jumping into shark-infested waters — this happened, and we all share some blame — and has sobered up. He’s a vegan, and judging from his anti-fur ad for PETA, has a pretty cute vegan butt.

Wait — what would Steve-O want with a Clooney ex?

Well said, Kim

It’s been awhile since we agreed with something Kim Kardashian said. And so we present selected quotes from Sunday’s season finale of “Kourtney and Kim Take New York” — which we’ve freed from infuriatingly mindless dribble about “fairy tales” and “growth experiences.”

Take it away, Kim!

 “Sometimes I feel so dead inside.”

 “[I] wasted everyone’s time and everyone’s money — everyone’s everything.”

 “I failed at this.”
