Actor Owen Wilson and Dancing With the Stars ballroom dancer Karina Smirnoff are reportedly dating. Really? That’s like Zac Efron dating someone from “Teen Mom.” That’s like Charlize Theron dating an American Idol contestant. That’s like George Clooney dating a former WWE wrestler. Oh wait…
Perpetual playboy, Owen Wilson has asked out the TV dancer and a source told Life & Style magazine, “They’ve been out a few times. They’re totally into each other.”
That’s great, but I wonder if Smirnoff knows about Owen’s dating history? Owen dated a woman named Jade Duell for 2 years, and then about five months after she gave birth to their son, Owen called it quits. Someone give Owen a “best dad ever” coffee mug or something, ironically of course.
A source said at the time, “Owen wanted the freedom to do what he wanted with his friends, both male and female, while remaining a family unit with Jade and the baby.”
So he wanted to be no-strings-attached with his baby momma. Let’s call it what it is. However, “Jade wasn’t willing to go along with that, so Owen decided to end things with her.”
Also, Karina Smirnoff is a free agent since she called off her engagement to baseball pitcher Brad Penny in December.
Too bad things went sour for Wilson and baby-momma Jade Duell. He thought she was “the one” saying that she made him stop talking about himself and listen to her.
“When you stop talking about yourself and you’re more open to listening to what they’re interested in and what they want to talk about, that’s how you know,” Wilson once said.
Know what? How you know you’re a good listener? Or how you know you’re in love? Eh. Whatever, Owen Wilson is dating a reality TV star everybody!
