Elisabetta Canalis throws a massive hissy fit, gives boyfriend his purse back

It was just yesterday that I was thinking about how much I missed Elisabetta Canalis’s seedy drama. Don’t you miss it? Don’t you miss the white-washing of her Italian past, which consistently involved the words “cocaine” and “hooker”? Don’t you miss Eli’s drag-queen vibe and her Adam’s apple? Don’t you miss her terrible acting and the constant “jobs” that Clooney had to buy for her? Don’t you miss the easy chemistry George Clooney and Eli had together? Well, if you answered “yes” to any of those questions, I have a special treat for you. Over the past few months, Eli has been dating Mehcad Brooks, who I basically only know from that USA show, Necessary Roughness. No one was really interested in who Eli is dating post-Clooney, but Eli still managed to famewhore this relationship to anyone who would listen. And now Radar reports that Eli and Mehcad had a spectacular blow-out, complete with an Eli hissy-fit.

Has yet another Hollywood romance bitten the dust? The relationship between Italian model Elisabetta Canalis and True Blood star Mehcad Brooks appears to have skidded to an abrupt halt following a spat in the lobby of her West Hollywood apartment building Thursday night, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

“Elisabetta and Mehcad were in the lobby obviously fighting with each other,” an eyewitness tells RadarOnline.com. “At first they were trying not to call attention to themselves. But after a few minutes they couldn’t contain themselves anymore and their voices started to escalate.”

The eyewitness continued, “They both became so angry, it was like they were oblivious to the fact that they were out in public: At one point, Elisabetta shoved Mehcad really hard, and he shouted right back at her to stop acting crazy. Finally Elisabetta screamed, ‘Just go! Get out of here!’ and stormed up to her apartment. Moments later, she returned to the lobby carrying an armful of things, which included a Balenciaga hand bag.”

The 33-year-old stunner, according to eyewitness, then dropped the bag on the desk of the building manager with a message for Mehcad, 31.

“She told him, ‘Tell that a**hole to take his s**t and never contact me again’ — then, she turned on her heel and stormed off!

“To say she was angry would be an understatement! I was really surprised by the whole thing, because I saw her wearing what looked like a wedding ring just last week,” the source added. “I thought they were madly in love!”

Elisabetta, who appeared on this season’s Dancing with the Stars, is best known for her previous relationship with George Clooney. Besides True Blood, Mehcad has been seen on Desperate Housewives, Law & Order: SVU and the USA network’s Necessary Roughness.

Ah, so the Balenciaga hand bag was HIS. Or it was just something he bought for her. I don’t know, this sounds like a planted story, but I’m still enjoying it. I hope Eli knows that the relationship with Mehcad did nothing for her fame-seeking ways. Granted, it would have been difficult for Eli to hook another A-lister – Clooney is pretty much the last A-lister with such bargain-basement tastes. But Eli should have gone for a B- or C-lister with a higher profile, maybe someone with well-known sexual kinks. I’m thinking Jeremy Piven? That would be awesome.

    Dude is gay…maybe she found out…the hard way.

    • Roma says:

      I thought he was gayer than gay as well. I think that’s why so many people pegged them as the recent blind where his ex-boyfriend approached her on the street and started screaming about how she stole his man.

      • shawn says:

        That was something that happened recently, so if the woman was Canalis, then the boyfriend would be Mehcad Brooks and not Clooney.

  2. Marjalane says:

    Man! Does she carry a Steven Tyler vibe or what?!

  3. Kimbob says:

    Quit being so hard on Elisabetta! Despite all the “tranny” comparisons, I think she’s quite beautiful. And…….who amongst us hasn’t had a cloudy/shady past? Well, ok…I’ll just speak for myself, then.

    My hand is raised. Cocaine was THE LEAST of problems of what all I did. Let people whisper about Elisabetta. You go girl! Keep on famewhoring. At least she has a little class to her famewhoring…unlike some faux celebs.

    • Sweetpea says:

      ‘At least she has a little class to her famewhoring…’ Seriously, LMAO!

      Great story, by the way. And obviously planted. “They both became so angry, it was like they were oblivious to the fact that they were out in public!” Uh-huh. Sure, that’s how it went.

  4. Hollowdoll says:

    The 33-year-old stunner? Who? What? Where? She’s only 33? That’s a harsh 33. I’m just stunned he/she/they/them didn’t start hissing and scratching.

  5. Anonymous says:

    Agree. She was more interesting than Old Man Clooney’s latest Barbie doll.

  6. ShanKat says:

    Her last name always makes me picture George explaining her role as ladyfriend: C…anal is (required).

  7. bea says:

    I bet she looks good in person. These photos are particularly harsh. You would have thought she’d have held out for a more famous bf than him.

    • jane16 says:

      You’d lose your bet…unless you think skin that looks like nubuck leather, and the strangest set of facial lines you ever saw on a woman, oily face with tons of makeup & coke zits, thin, oily hair, tiny size 0 body with crooked legs and lapwarmer boobs, and a scowling, stuck up demeanor are your idea of beauty.

      • Dani says:

        So you’ve seen her in person?

      • jane16 says:

        Yes, I’ve see her around quite a bit since she shops at some of the same stores I do; but, once when hub & I were at popular restaurant with half a dozen industry people, GC & her came in; before going to their table, GC came over to say hi to all of us and introduced her to us. She stared at us coldly and didn’t say a word, even when someone greeted her in Italian. We have run into her/them other times, pretty much the same thing. I find her very conceited, and she also has the jitteriness/grumpiness that is frequent in heavy cocaine use. Not sayin’ I know she does it, but people that do act like that.

  8. teehee says:

    FYI if you ever, ever could even think to refer to the person you are supposed to love, as an a$$hat, you made some really bad choices and you obviously dont know anythign about building a successful relationship.

    • dovesgate says:

      Not entirely true. My husband can be an asshat. He knows this. He also knows I love him very much despite the occasional asshattery.

  9. Kelly says:

    Why would she give back a Balenciaga bag? That’s just downright stupid. I wonder if she chucked all of Clooney’s gifts back at him.

  10. mln76 says:

    I totally miss her crazy ways. Now that she’s single George please take her back at least for Oscar season. Pretty please.

  11. weeble says:

    I doubt the bag was his. He probably bought it for her. And meh, now they will get papped while walking together and claim things are fine. This is a publicity stunt…if it really happened.

    Now drama would be if Mec’s old boyfriend shows up in the lobby and tries to snatch a knot in Eli….THAT would be epic.

  12. Intercontinental says:

    Whilst we never took to EC and are the first to bitch on her we have to say we do miss her – real life is her version of reality tv! She never fails to outrage or amuse – constantly and with her own persona, no scripting there! Having said that being Brits we can relate to her probably more than others because really none of us here would, and don’t, put up
    with bullish*t from a man either! Her hissy fits where ever actioned are part of the course – he does NOT walk all over you despite what he may think! And you (females) always get your way! Life is very simple and peaceful on those rules! If he doesn’t like it he knows where the door is! :-)

  13. brin says:

    What’s she doing now that DWTS is over?
    (I have an idea).

  14. Leslie says:

    Stunner??? Maybe they meant to say STONER!!! LOL

  15. Kali says:

    Well, we should be getting a tweet or an interview from Malibu Barbie Cray Cray today or tomorrow to counter this news story on Elisabetta. Can’t wait. When will these famewhore’s take a train outta town and be gone off the radar screen?

    • Intercontinental says:

      Agree x9!

      After her recent fit we’re getting Marj prepared – deep breathing…in through the nose…hold, and slowly out through the mouth…Come on Marj you can do this…breathe…!! :-)

  16. Peachy says:

    “Moments later, she returned to the lobby carrying an armful of things, which included a Balenciaga hand bag.”

    Other items included Mehcad’s Easy Bake Oven, Pink Princess Phone, and Barbie Dream Townhouse.

    • Veruca says:

      I wouldn’t give the Town House back. I loved the Town House. What tops a yellow elevator on a string?

  17. Ha ha says:

    Love her ! So glad you posted this . Hope she gets some work or dates another A lister so that we can see more Eli :)

  18. ali says:


    • Intercontinental says:

      Hun, we’re trying to get the drift but that doesn’t make sense! ;-)

    • Jaye E says:

      Psst. Hey, Ali? You see that rectangular button directly to the left of the ‘A’ key? It says ‘caps lock’. Press that ish for me, will ya?

  19. Redd says:

    I remember seeing photos on this site, I think these 2 were in Italy together and he was carrying a man bag. Maybe it was his purse? She has got a killer body but good grief she looks more manly than many a man.

  20. truthful says:

    she is a tranny, I thought this was a couple made in heaven.

  21. kieslowski says:

    Kaiser thank you for posting this, so funny.

    Oh and Canalis and Jeremy Piven (wth his plugs) would be a match made in heaven. PLease let it happen!

  22. I.want.shoes says:

    How would this eyewitness know it was a Balenciaga bag? I love fashion as much as the next bitch but seriously, unless it’s an obvious brand (like the LV monogram) or the brand name was printed in bold cap letters, I would not be able to tell.

  23. Michel says:

    I dont care what he did. You keep the handbag!!!

  24. ladybert62 says:

    Cant stand this she/he! What I want to know is what is bad girl Lindsay Lohan doing? Is she missing in action?

  25. I Choose Me says:

    I don’t usually care who’s gay or straight as it’s non of my business and I don’t have any gaydar or whatever but if I had such a thing – this guy would definitely register.

    Lol at Michel’s comment ^

  26. Hanna says:

    She’s very masculine and looks more like a tranny. Why do guys fall for her? Dude, she really looks like a man. I’m getting pretty scared now. o.o

  27. Cerulean says:

    I think it works because he’s gay and she’s really a man. I bet they bitch slapped each other over clothes and accessories.

  28. shawn says:

    I mostly agree with your assessment, Kaiser, except that Clooney and Canalis never had anything resembling easy chemistry. She often threw hissy fits on red carpets, and George was caught more than once telling her to smile. George had to get drunk just to bear having her next to him at the Oscars.

    • Intercontinential says:

      Ahh, yes the memories..the little piece of silver tucked in the inside pocket, on display for all to see..! :-)

      Wonder if that little thing will show at the next one…? Hmm..

      We might need it even if he doesn’t..! ;-)

      • shawn says:

        I’m so over awards shows and Clooney’s fakeness that I may make it a point not to watch the Oscars if Clooney gets a nomination, which pretty much means I won’t be watching them. And if Clooney were to win, which all things considered is unlikely, can you imagine how fake his speech would be and how obnoxious Cray Cray would act? The last Clooney movie I saw was Up in the Air, which was what, two years ago? I have no plans to see either of his two new movies. People mag and all the rest keep trying to shove the Clooney p.r. down our throats, but it’s gotten to the point that it’s making people gag. When Clooney starts treating the public with some respect, as in not treating us like we’re all idiots by parading a p.r. famewhore around, I’ll start seeing his movies again.

  29. NM9005 says:

    Ah, the Italian temperament…

  30. Catherine says:

    She’s just pissy because she looks more manly than he does.

  31. Jayna says:

    Dear God, I am missing her with George. Stacy just appeared on Extra and she called George super human. She’s is milking this for all it’s worth. I am sick of her.

    • Intercontinential says:

      Aw, bless you.. but good heads up Jayna! Thanks!

      Calling Kaiser, KAIIIIZZEERR!!..that’ll be the que for the next piece hun..! Get in there first – come on be the first to report on the PR war! ;-)

    • april says:

      I miss her with George too. She was much more interesting.

  32. Agnes says:

    Wait a minute here… Maybe HE thought that SHE was a dude and found out the hard way that she isn’t. Haha.

  33. ohdear says:

    Am I the only one who thinks the whole Brooks-Canalis “love” was staged and not only this alleged fight? Anyways, she was interviewed in Italy on monday and she said she’d go immediately back to LA and that she’s going to start working on an american TV show next february but she doesn’t know much about this new project yet. Hope this makes you happy Kaiser, she’ll be back on screen soon… Though she also claimed that she will eventually go back to Italy. Besides, she was asked whether anybody was jealous of her naked pictures (she was in Milan for the PETA campaign) and she answered something like “at the moment there’s nobody in my life that has reason to be jealous, maybe my dogs”, so fight or not fight, she’s not dating Mechad.

    • shawn says:

      Yes, I think the relationship is scripted, and I think Canalis and her publicist got the idea from her scripted relationship with Clooney.

  34. Sasha says:

    I really, truly think that there is something very manly about Eli’s look. I get that she’s sexy in a dumb, dirty kind of way but in every picture I see of her, I think.. MAN. What is it with Clooney and manly women????

  35. ali says:

    elisabetta is stunner in her own imagination, LOOOLZ that made me LAUGH OUT LOUD .who said he is her boyfriend ,just friend but NO ONE CARE ,SHE IS EVEN MORE FUNNY THAN CLOONEY THING WITH STACY,WE CAN MAKE FUN OF ELISABETA MUCH EASILY .LOLS

  36. crtb says:

    Why on god’s earth are people missing her? She has always come across as spoile, a drama queen and quick to throw a tantrum if she didn’t get her own way.

    Te new girlfriend is just as obnoxious. All bluebirds and buttercups.

    GC has really poor taste in women.

    • shawn says:

      “Te new girlfriend is just as obnoxious. All bluebirds and buttercups.”

      That’s funny to me because she’s always tweeting about doing cleanses, the effects of which I imagine would cause bluebirds to pass out and buttercups to wilt. ROFL.

    • Cerulean says:

      Oh yes birds greet her every morning singing a happy tune, flitting about her while she sits at her vanity tying ribbons and flowers in her hair. Then she rides her unicorn to the fairy gym to practice her wrestling moves. Several times a day she breaks out in song while little Keibler elves dance around her fawning over her beauty.

  37. dovesgate says:

    Ah, its Eggs.

    What in the world is Eggs doing with HER of all people? Gay or not, I don’t care, but if either of them were looking for someone to date to raise their profiles why in the world would they choose each other?

  38. Sara says:

    Isn’t she a lot older than him? She looks like she’s in her 40s and he looks more the 20-30 range.

  39. Lady_Luck says:

    She’s nuttier than a bag full of crunchy nut cornflakes.

  40. Joanna says:

    omg, it says she’s 33! yeah, right!
