Remember that one time when Gerard Butler slept with Brandi Glanville? Neither did Gerard Butler.
That's not to say it didn't happen because don't worry your gossipy little heart, it totally did. Gerard openly talks about the whole fling himself, he just didn't know at the time the woman he "had a little bit of fun" with was a "Real Housewife." Which is interesting considering Real Housewives are a lot like vegans, they will go way out of their way to make sure you know they're a Real Housewife.
Celebrity rumors are like a figurative boomerang and naturally in this case it eventually made its way back to Gerard one day when a paparazzo went all This is Spartaaaaaa on him, shoving a camera in his face and shouting "Brandi! Sex!! BRANDIIIII!!!!!!"
His very bro-y, very Dude, Where's My Car? answer was all, huh, wuuutttt, who's Brandi Glanville?
"Because one, I didn't know her last name," Gerard says to Howard Stern on the shock jock's XM radio show, "and two, I didn't know she was a celebrity and I didn't know she was going to go f***ing tell people about it!"
As much as we all wish it were true, just because you can't remember everything before the hangover doesn't erase a regrettable life choice, even if that hangover is attached to a glamorous celeb. Comforting to know there's at least one thing money and fame can't buy in 2013.
Here's how they met: You won't see this any time soon in a Gerard Butler romcom starring opposite Katherine Heigl as Brandi Glanville: The two met at a party at da beach house, he asked Brandi what she did for a living, to which she innocuously brushed off, replying that it "doesn't matter" (she didn't have to ask him what he does for a living because he's Gerard Butler), they skipped the walk on the beach with the setting sun, hooked up, jotted each others first names in their respective little black books and that was that.
You can watch Gerard explain his forgot-your-nom faux pas and ménage à deux (excuse me while I use French words to make this whole ordeal sound more classy than it actually is):
