Menounos Carries Swarovski, Attracts Bachelor Prince
Actress Maria Menounos arrives to attend the annual Redbook Magazine Strength & Spirit Awards in New York City, October 17, 2006. Menounos carried a navy blue pearl mesh crystal Jackie clutch by Daniel Swarovski. Page Six reported Monday: ABC's newest "Bachelor," Prince Lorenzo Borghese, was doing some aggressive, off-camera babe hunting at the ASPCA's Young Friends Benefit honoring Maria Menounos. The rascally Romeo, who was there to hawk his new pet-care line, was "draping his arms around and flirting with women from the minute he arrived," said our appalled female spy. "Forget the dogs. Someone needs to put him on a leash." Among the beauties he chatted up were Alison Kelly of "Project Runway," Anna Anisimova and Hana Soupkova.
BeansTalk doubts ABC is happy that I'm-just-Lorenzo seems to be making it apparent that either 1. he didn’t choose a potential princess or 2. if he chose her, it proverbially didn’t work out (The Bachelor/Bachelorette pretty much has one significant success story in the bland Trista and Ryan). BTW, we interviewed him and while he was fine, he’s obviously used to lots of attention, to getting his own way. He’s very handsome and very rich. And we found him a tad impatient. Snap. Snap. (We also became fixated on the fact that despite the fact that he was born in Italy to Italian parents, and he’s traveled there four to five times years since – for business now – he only speaks ‘menu’ Italian.)
