Joanna, this is why I like to chat with you, all of you others. The kindness and respect for the opinions. And when someone overdoes it, you do it out civilly.

I enjoy reading the different interpretations of the same situation ... sometimes they need to make me see things in a different way ....lately, not too often, unfortunately ... flower flower

Oh well barla...Lol...He's lovely really don't you think ?


Those pictures of George singing are OK by me...wine or no wine.
After all...he's not the Pope...Lol
I do hope someone pops it on YouTube SOON.

He's been working a lot....just let the man unwind
and have some fun with people who like/love/admire
him I say !

We feel like that about him on here....Don't We ????

Like this last photo....thanks Laetval (by the way how do you pronounce your name and what does it mean?)

Thanks too Katie....I can never remember who BL is. I saw Carrie Fisher's one woman show on HBO...when she talks about him it is pretty funny.

Here is video of him leaving he dinner with Jay Leno..

Dick but George is a great actor he is well able to play the part of the father in the "Descendant" it is possible that next to Stacy can not even play the part, not a lover, but at least that of a devoted friend?

I agree Lela, they are not evening trying to fake their happiness anymore. They both look miserable and dont seem to care if the world sees it anymore.

Whomever said this isn't George's usual crowd is correct. The "pensioners" are the mega millionaires and billionaires in Hollywood and beyond and most ARE in the 60's and older.

George was honored with an award, that's why he attended. He was there to be fun loving and humble George Clooney which I'm sure he did well. He shows up for this event (which garners them much more press and attention than the ball normally gets) and then later perhaps when he's looking for financing for a film, or donations for a cause, his billionaire buddies might be more wiling to open their wallets.

From Celebitchy (emphasis mine, as she phrased my thoughts better than I could have):

George Clooney brings Lhuillier-clad Stacy Keibler to LA charity event

These are some new photos of George Clooney and Stacy Keibler last night in LA at the 26th Anniversary Carousel Of Hope Ball (Presented By Mercedes-Benz). So… they’re still together. Good to know. I actually had to choose these photos very carefully, because there were several pics where George looked like he was having a stroke and Stacy was his young nurse who was half-carrying him down the red carpet. I’m just saying… Clooney’s motto of “I keep getting older and they stay the same age” has reached a critical point. He looks less like a carefree bachelor enjoying the pleasures of younger ladies and more like an old fart who doesn’t know what to do with it now that he bought it. Something nice: George and Stacy were at the event because George was being honored with the Brass Ring Award for his years of humanitarian work.

And yes, Stacy is a hot mess. Her dress is Monique Lhuillier. It’s… eh. I mean, it’s not awful. I think I would have liked the dress if the colors were different, or if it was a solid color (maybe a deep wine color, or a metallic). It feels very “establishment” and like she’s saying stylistically that she knows the event isn’t about her, but she still wants to look nice and well-put-together. The dress honestly reminds me of something Rita Wilson would wear to one of Tom Hanks’s premieres.

Everything past the dress is kind of bad, though. Why can’t Clooney buy Stacy a decent hair stylist? Why does her hair look so awful so consistently? I mean, I guess we should be thankful that it’s not another ratty bird’s nest hairstyle, but this looks like an awkward helmet. Also: I think Stacy is trying to ease herself into a darker shade. She’s slowly and subtly stepping away from the blonde. Clooney does seem to prefer brunettes, from what I can see.

Last thing: did George buy Stacy some new bolt-ons? Discuss.

Thanks everone for the many pictures of last night.

I made the mistake of reading the comments on Celebitchy and can't believe all the hate and jealousy shown there about George and Stacy. I think they looked great. For God's sake, stop all the jealous animosity already.

why is it jealousy?? I think a lot of people dont like Stacy or the way she looks and are expressing it. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I dont like Stacy from the image she presents. Dont think shes that hot either but I am definitely not jealous, its just my opinion.

I think George did get in the back with Stacy the view is odd but he is in the back. I know people see what they want to see but this is just sad. They don't look unhappy or bored to me. The look like a normal couple out having a good time . No they aren't grinning in every picture why should they be. People complain when George does the same things like vacation in Italy . Now he is out and enjoying time with his girlfriend and more in public, it's not a real relationship because he never did this before. I am glad that George is living his life and enjoying it.

Have to agree with some of the other posters as to the attendees. I think George being there really heightened awareness of the organization and cause and they probably made a lot more money as Hollywood old money turned out in full. I do think when you look at the guest list it's an odd assortment of really big stars who are in their 70's, 80's and up along with the perennial d-listers and d-list wannabes. Very odd combo and really good of him to go.

As far as Stacy, i too wondered about her hair. Is she going darker? And to the posters who either think they look great together and those who say he looks old, the most interesting thing to me about both of them is how she ages him in photos together but he makes her look younger. In pics alone or with others, he looks like G Clooney and younger, or at least, his age. In pics alone or with others, she looks older than her age. Very weird!

Finally, I wish he'd use less gel in his hair! Like men's hair a little less slicked back. And maybe, to all those saying he's looking old, he's getting ready for a new role? Some of the reason he has seemingly aged more quickly than Brad Pitt can be attributed, in large part, to how thin he is. He and Stacy are both too thin but from reading other threads here, that seems to happen with a lot of his relationships.

why is it jealousy?? I think a lot of people dont like Stacy or the way she looks and are expressing it. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I dont like Stacy from the image she presents. Dont think shes that hot either but I am definitely not jealous, its just my opinion.

Sorry mrs. clooney, you misunderstand me. I wasn't criticizing the COH posters but the ones who posted on Celebitchy. We're relatively kind here compared to other sites.

I read the comments on Celebitchy and those of Jast jared and there is nobody but nobody that the pair wise Clooney Keibler, Cindy but are you sure that's jealousy because to me this seems ridiculous it is impossible to be jealous of George is so unattainable maybe it's because most people see the couple (there are also there among them) ridiculous! I liked Celine and I've never seen George ridiculous with her but I always saw a beautiful couple, I love Elizabeth and I have never seen George ridiculous with her, I did not like Sarah but together were never ridiculous but George and Stacy seem to go together like pasta and jam!

Neil Diamond and George Clooney Close the Star-Studded Carousel of Hope Gala on a Perfect Note

George Clooney took home the Brass Ring Award at the Carousel of Hope, but not before singing a duet with Neil Diamond.
The headliner for the Oct. 20 gala benefiting the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, Diamond chose “Sweet Caroline” for their singing debut as a duo. And while Clooney seemed reluctant at first, he readily sang the line, “so good, so good,” at the chorus, and joined in for the final words, “sweet Caroline,” at the song’s end.
Honored during the evening for his extraordinary humanitarian work, Clooney – according to Diamond – said before dinner that he couldn’t sing. “Not a note,” Diamond said, repeating Clooney’s words, about how people think he can sing because his aunt was the legendary Rosemary Clooney.
“(Clooney) was saying ‘Neil, whatever you do, don’t ask me to sing,’” Diamond said. “I promised him that I wouldn’t. But I lied.” Diamond then brought the microphone to the Academy Award-winning actor, flanked tableside by ball chair Barbara Davis and his glamorous, statuesque girlfriend Stacy Keibler. Granted, Diamond sang most of the song solo, but Clooney proved a good sport by belting out a few of the lyrics.

On the Bill: Great Entertainment
The evening, which took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, ended on that perfect note, literally thanks to the Clooney/Diamond duet, after a live and silent auction, the awards ceremony, Diamond’s 6-song set and more performances by a full slate of brilliant entertainers, beginning with Fernando Varela, who sang a stunning “Nessun Dorma” from the opera “Turandot.”
Also performing for the sold-out room: Jessica Sanchez of “American Idol” and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. Acclaimed singer/songwriter/record producer David Foster accompanied them all at the piano.
Sanchez dedicated her song, “You’re Gonna Love Me,” to Clooney.
Edmonds then followed, saying he wanted to dedicate his song to Clooney, before changing his mind.
“I’m un-dedicating this to you because it feels a little too weird,” Edmonds said to Clooney from onstage, before re-dedicating his song to Keibler. Edmonds then sang “When Can I See You,” and Eric Clapton’s “Change the World.”
Diamond rounded out the evening with “Forever in Blue Jeans,” “Hello Again,” “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “Love on the Rocks,” “Sweet Caroline” and his signature finale, “America.”

A Star-Studded Crowd to Honor Clooney
Jay Leno played emcee to the star-studded crowd, which also included Jane Fonda, Julianne Hough of “Dancing With the Stars,” Diego Boneta, Carmen Electra, Jennie Garth, Jackie Collins, Joan Collins, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis of “The Fifth Dimension,” Nicollette Sheridan, Holly Robinson Peete, Smokey Robinson, Sidney Poitier, Ryan O’Neal, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed, Daisy Fuentes, Nicky Hilton, Berry Gordy, Quincy Jones and Clive Davis.

Shirley MacLaine introduced the video tribute to Clooney, honored for his artistic achievements and use of his celebrity to help Haiti, Darfur and other troubled regions of the world. Among other humanitarian pursuits, he organized the “Hope for Haiti” telethon after the devastating 2010 earthquake, drew attention to troubled regions in Africa through his television special, “A Journey to Darfur,” and recently launched the Satellite Sentinel Project to show the world the criminal activities in Sudan.

Glittering Gowns – Trailing Trains
More formal than the usual Los Angeles gala, long gowns ruled at this affair. So many women trailed trains behind them that guests had to take care wandering around, lest they step on one and stop a gala-goer in her tracks.
My best-dressed votes went to Stacy Keibler in glittering Monique Lhullier, Julianne Hough in a jeweled Jenny Packham and Jane Fonda in a vintage Giorgio Armani ensemble that Fonda said she pulled together from out of her closet.
There with longtime boyfriend, record producer Richard Perry, Fonda said she was headed for Paris to talk about her latest book, “Prime Time: Love, health, sex, fitness, friendship, spirit; Making the most of all of your life.” The French were most interested in the parts about sex, she said. (In my judgement, the fitness section is certainly worth following, too, because whatever Fonda is doing, is working well: She looks younger and more beautiful every time I see her, as mentioned in one of my previous stories here.)

An Expected $3 Million for Childhood Diabetes
The ball was expected to raise $3 million for the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, from ticket sales, sponsorships and the 500-item silent auction, along with a live auction of a 2013 Mercedes Benz G63 AMG , wedding in Bora Bora and first class trip to Paris, complete with a stay at the Plaza Athenee Hotel and tickets to the haute couture fashion shows for Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Jean Paul Gaultier, Atelier Versace, Valentino, Elie Saab, Stephane Rolland, On Aura Tout Vu, and Christophe Josse.
