Engagement called off for Stallone, model

Published June 11, 1995|Updated Oct. 4, 2005

The Sylvester Stallone-Angie Everhart quickie romance that soared so high so fast has crashed and burned. The wedding has been called off, Stallone publicist Paul Bloch said Friday. "No reason is being given, but it's official. It's off," he said. The actor, 48, and the model, 25, announced their engagement in April mere weeks after meeting and falling in love. But trouble was brewing. Reports say she balked at being told by Stallone what to eat, how to dress, etc. No word on if they still remain friends.

Back from the makeup counter, Boy George

Remember Boy George? Think mascara, eye shadow and Culture Club. He's much tamer now and has penned his autobiography, Take It Like a Man, in which he reveals current and past fantasies and gossips about Hollywood's denizens. The singer once asked Madonna if she was a lesbian and got punched and cussed out for the trouble. (The Material Girl said no.) He says a Sean Penn type (the real one used to be hitched to Madonna) would be his ideal fantasy, "aggressive, passionate, jealous and protective." As for actor Matt Dillon, he looks "more scrumptious than any piece of crispy bacon."
