Hello and welcome to Gossip Time, a weekly guide to the stars by Allie Jones. This week: an actor takes his new GF to Mexico, a prince discusses his private parts, and Ashley Olsen makes a lifelong commitment to one man.
Well, Babylon bombed at the box office over the holidays, but looky here: Brad Pitt has a new girlfriend! The 59-year-old actor was photographed catching a sunburn in Cabo on New Year’s Eve with his latest PR-approved fling, Ines de Ramon. This gal, as we previously covered, is a VP at Anita Ko jewelry and is anywhere from 29 to 33. We know that she has long brown hair, that she separated from her Vampire Diaries star husband Paul Wesley sometime last year, and that she does not care for bikini tops:
Pitt has tried out several random girlfriends since his divorce from Angelina Jolie, but few have made it to the “intentional paparazzi photos” stage. This must mean de Ramon is pretty agreeable. According to a source who talked to Entertainment Tonight this week, “Brad likes how chill and low-key Ines is.” Uh huh.
The source added that “Ines took a bunch of time off from work during the holidays to celebrate with Brad and spend New Year's Eve with him,” which seems normal and not worth mentioning, but okay. “They had a great time in Cabo just relaxing and having fun together.”
Next stop: Chateau Miraval? That’s where he took German model Nico Mary in 2020 before the tabloids found out she was married to someone else.
Pitt’s old co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, meanwhile, is keeping his romantic options open. Just before Christmas, the 48-year-old actor was spotted with a new 23-year-old (duh) model (duh) named Victoria Lamas. Yes, she is one of Lorenzo Lamas’s daughters, and yes, the only photos of her on Getty are from when she attended the Inspector Gadget 2 premiere with her dad and sisters in 2003.
Now, she’s all grown up and has a contract with “Natural Models LA.” But I don’t think DiCaprio is committing to her anytime soon: He spent New Year’s Eve on a yacht with Tobey Maguire and Drake. Page Six says Lamas was on the boat, too, but she didn’t show up in any of the pap photos. And now DiCaprio is in Miami partying with other models including Lilia Weddell and Rebecca Donaldson. You may remember Donaldson as Scott Disick’s date to the season one premiere of The Kardashians on Hulu. Glad to see she’s landed on her feet.
After a middling showing on Netflix last month, Prince Harry is setting the tabloids on fire with his memoir Spare, out next week. Not since Jessica Simpson’s (extremely good) Open Book has a celebrity memoir created so many headlines. So far, only the Spanish version of the text has leaked, so Us Weekly and Page Six interns are furiously Google translating and reporting on passages in real time.
The revelations are astounding: Harry had a frostbitten penis at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. He lost his virginity to an older woman who treated him like a horse. He got into a physical altercation in which Wills tackled him to the ground on top of a dog bowl and broke his necklace. He killed 25 Taliban guys??? And Will and Kate watched Suits???????
I can’t imagine what else could be revealed in this tome, but I guess I’ll be picking up a copy on Tuesday.
STUFF BY HILARY DUFF: Hilary Duff’s middle name is Erhard. Not sure if we’ve covered that before.
Finally, I’ll leave you with the thrilling news that Ashley Olsen got married over Christmas. According to Page Six, she wed her longtime BF Louis Eisner in a “secret ceremony” at a home in Bel-Air on December 28. A source revealed the celebration “went late with 50 people or so total.” We’ll probably never get to see what she wore, so let’s just look at this pic of her and Mary-Kate on bridesmaid duty in 2017:
