May 27, 2002 - A Cosmopolitan magazine blind item reads: "My buddy is this great actor who could have any woman he wants. The one he has is a gorgeous model, but she's a bit of a nutcase. He hates to be late, but she couldn't care less about time. When she came two-and-a-half hours late to my birthday party, he'd had enough.

We consoled him for the rest of the night and really thought their relationship was over for good this time. 
But just a week later, they were totally back together, screaming and yelling in public. Truth is, I think he likes her wacky behavior."
