If you can’t go to Lake Como to get away from it all, where can you go? Seriously, George Clooney would like to know, but in the meantime, he’s reportedly selling his mansion in Italy to get away from the paparazzi corps, which follows him like there was nothing else to do in the country. And “Dancing With The Stars” star Stacy Keibler has had enough.
According to Italian news program TG 23, George Clooney may be shopping Villa Oleandra, the mansion he purchased on the shores of Lake Como a decade ago.
Two years after buying Villa Oleandra, George Clooney was made an honorary citizen of Laglio, the town where his villa is located. He even filmed “The American” in Italy a couple of years ago, after promising residents of Abruzzo – an earthquake-stricken region – that would do make a film there to help give the local economy something of a jump start. His political thriller “The Ides of March” opened at the Venice Film Festival last year. He was even romantically linked to Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis for almost five whole years, before it went south last years.
So with all this upside, what’s the problem, you ask?
Enter the latest girlfriend – Stacy Keibler, a reality TV star who performs on “Dancing with the Stars.”
Stacy Keibler doesn’t like the paparazzi who camp outside the villa when Clooney is in town.
So, she made him an offer he couldn’t refuse – “the house or me.”
It was unclear how long Clooney took to consider the deal. One thing is clear though, reality TV actresses are easy to come by for a guy like Clooney, but there’s only one Villa Oleandra.
