While the world applauds accomplished lawyer Amal Alamuddin's upcoming nuptials with aging actor George Clooney, one single lady is left with not even one hand clapping. Word has it that Clooney's last girlfriend Stacy Keibler is "irked" at the engagement news. And we're not talking about a mild dose of jealousy, either. An insider dishes to Us Weekly, "When George and Stacy got together, he told her she would be the one he'd marry -- and that they could have kids." Oh for crying! Out! Loud! What is this, Sweet Valley High?
First of all, Stacy Keibler, you FELL FOR THAT LINE? I know, I know. We've all been there. Show me a woman who hasn't at least once in her life believed some caca a man told her because she wanted to believe it and I'll show you a space alien. You know what you want. He knows what you want. He doesn't want to deliver it, but he's only too happy to give you the next best thing. The truth? Hah! Not a chance. No, his next best thing is a time-buying false promise. A lie.
Okay, so George lied. (ALLEGEDLY.) Or maybe he really did mean it at the time and then changed his mind. Let this be a lesson for all of us: Don't bet on anything until it actually happens.
By the way, note that the "source" uses the word "irked." Not heartbroken. Not crushed. Not even pissed. Just, you know, slightly annoyed. I can see that, actually. I mean, overall Stacy is probably glad it didn't work out with George. She found love with the right person for her (we're assuming) and she's having his baby. So it's not like she's still harboring a broken heart or anything.
It's just that she thought she'd be THE ONE and then she wasn't. Why wasn't she good enough for him? Because she's not a genius career lady with smart lady dark hair? Did he consider her just a blond wrestling bimbo all along?!? Oh man, the toxic self-doubt this engagement could unleash.
But hopefully Stacy is above that. She is, right? Because that's why she said (oops, I mean the source said) "irked" and not "on a downward spiral." Stacy's got better things going on in her life now.
How would you feel if you were Stacy Keibler or any of George Clooney's other exes?
