Hayden seen flirting with Lakers star10.21.08

Palisades native Hayden Panettiere was seen coming out of a Jay Z concert in Hollywood last week when she stopped to talk to Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom.c4e3b543-f7c6-4fdf-b2e8-fd538f1ce8d3.jpg

An eyewitness said he saw Panettiere and Odom exchange phone numbers, ooh la la!

(Forgive me for my faux French, its a celebrity gossip blog, so don’t judge me).

To me, the news is no surprise. I reported last month she was “freaked out” by marriage talks from her boyfriend and Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia. And she moved out of her family’s home to buy her own bachelor pad. It’s just a matter of time before her breakup becomes public.

Milo, it’s over bro. This is one cheerleader you can’t save.

A marriage made in ‘Heroes’ heaven?07.17.08

Shhh, shhh, don’t anybody tell Palisades native Hayden Panettiere, but her “Heroes” beau, Milo Ventimilgia, is reportedly out shopping for a ring. According to InTouch Weekly (not to be confused with the distinctly more highbrow and restaurant-review packed InTown Monthly), the 31-year-old actor’s “pal” said:

Milo was looking at rings in late June. He really likes Cartier and intends to spend around $200,000.

Stop the presses. Does Venti know that “Heroes” is, oh, one more bad season away from getting the ol’ heave ho?

Lest he’s enlisting the time-stopping skills of Hiro to go steal his $200k rock, I’d try and scale back a bit. Oh, and maybe also hold off on the proposal until Hayden is at least 20 years old.

Hayden P. and Milo V. seen house hunting03.31.08

Deny, deny, deny … and, uh, then go house hunting. Ever since “Heroes” stars Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere insisted that they were just “close friends,” nothing more nothing less, it looks like their friendship has evolved into possible co-habitation. According to InTouch Weekly (not to be confused with InTown Monthly), via AZ Central, Hayden, who grew up in Palisades, was seen looking for condo in Los Angeles — mostly in the Beverly Hills area.

Quoth the tabloid: “Panettiere’s mother is said to be fully supportive of the big move and approves of Ventimiglia.” Another source was reported as saying, “Hayden’s mom adores Milo. She thinks he’s so cute. She tells her friends that he’s her boyfriend. She’s very proud.”

The mag also reported that Ventimiglia, who is 12 years older than Panettiere, “came clean about the relationship when he toasted ‘his girlfriend Hayden’ at a Los Angeles party.”

Milo Ventimiglia denies dating Hayden Panettiere11.27.07

Ever since they were caught grinding at a post-Emmys party, “Heroes” stars Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere have been rumored to be off-screen sweethearts. Our official tally of the evidence showed that the likelihood of the rumor being true was greater than zero (+2 to be exact). But, as Ventimiglia told People mag, “She and I are close friends. It’s only natural that people are going to couple us together.” In fact, he isn’t the only denying the rumor. James Kyson Lee, aka Ando on “Heroes,” also told the magazine, “The rumor is not true. Let’s just end it there.”

Me thinks doth protest too much, but fine, we’ll drop the issue. For now.

Rumor Control: Hayden-Milo a no-go09.28.07

hayden-milo.JPGOK, so maybe we jumped the gun a bit on the rumor that Hayden Panetteire and her “Heroes” costar Milo Ventimiglia are now an item. At least, that’s what another costar, James Kyson Lee, told People magazine.  “The rumor is not true. Let’s just end it there.”

He continued, “I think we were just surprised because they’re 12 years apart – for people to even conceive that. I know there have been a lot of jokes, Hayden turning 18 and whatnot. At some point, you just have to let it go, and respect their privacy.”

Well, there was that. And also this YouTube video of the two grinding and making sexy like at the Emmys after-party, which pretty much speaks for it self.

Shameless Speculation: Is Hayden Panettiere dating Milo Ventimiglia, her “Heroes” co-star?09.21.07

nup_109797_0016.jpgSimply posing the question is probably enough to put me on Hayden’s hit list, but ah, I ain’t afraid of you, missy.

So, let’s weigh the evidence (I’ll assign a + or – point total to the rumor for each point):

• TMZ.com caught the two walking arm in arm after the Emmy awards. However, when pressed by the cameraman, Ventimiglia said they weren’t dating and Panettiere said, “I’m holding onto him because I’m about to fall over in these heels!” -2

• Hollywood Grind says that the two attended the Governor’s Ball and that Milo was seen cutting Hayden’s meat. +1

• The two seem rather close in a series of photos from the “Heroes” world tour. +1

• E! points out the obvious: that Milo is 30 and Hayden just turned 18. -1

• Finally, this YouTube clip, via HollywoodTV, shows Ventimiglia grinding into Panettiere on the dance floor at the Duran Duran concert staged at Disney Hall in downtown Los Angeles, an official after-party of the Emmy Awards. While it’s not definitive, the two do look awfully intimate. +3

Final tally: +2

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a certified rumor.
