Stamos’ ‘real’ world


Actor John Stamos, estranged husband of model-turned-actress Rebecca Romijn, is looking to date nurses and waitresses as he moves on from the painful breakup of his six-year marriage.

Glamour girls needn’t apply.

“I’ve gone out with some waitresses lately, and I went out with a nurse. I think that’s probably my route, someone who is inspired and is non-jaded, and that’s what’s interesting about regular, real girls,” Mr. Stamos says.

“I have so much to offer as far as my life. I hate talking up all the great things I have in my life. I’d love to share them with people.”

Real women, he says, appreciate the little things.

“I met this girl, and we went to Disney World, and we didn’t have to stand in line, and she was just so excited,” Mr. Stamos says. “That made me so happy that she wasn’t jaded. That’s a road that I want to be on.”

It’s over

Hollywood couple Orlando Bloom and Kate Bosworth have split after dating for nearly three years, People magazine reported Monday.

“They did decide to take some time apart due to their upcoming work schedule, and they remain very close,” the couple’s representative, Robin Baum, told the magazine. “It was a mutual decision.”

Mr. Bloom, 28, starred most recently in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and last year’s “Troy.”

Miss Bosworth, 22, who starred in the 2002 film “Blue Crush,” played Sandra Dee in last year’s “Beyond the Sea,” about the 1950s crooner Bobby Darin.

Rock in a hard place

In a profanity-laced interview for the March edition of Playboy, pro-wrestler-turned-actor the Rock had no trouble spewing his views on a host of topics. He boasted about losing his virginity at 14, talked about handling fights with fans, conjectured about kissing a man on-screen and even dissed Tobey Maguire’s credibility as an action-movie star.

“Men find an action hero believable if they can say, ‘Wow, I believe this guy can really kick … ,’” The Rock said. “I loved Spider-Man, but I’m not too sure Tobey Maguire could kick [me] or a lot of other [people] ….”

The Rock, born Dwayne Johnson, also had choice words for NBA standout Ron Artest, suspended for the remainder of the season for his role in the infamous dust-up with fans during a November game between the Indiana Pacers and Detroit Pistons.

“You need to maintain a level of professionalism,” the Rock said. “You cannot go into the stands after fans. It is … nonnegotiable.”

The magazine hits newsstands Feb. 11.

The Rock’s new film, “Be Cool,” a sequel to “Get Shorty,” opens later this year.

Garden’ singer arrested

Country music star Lynn Anderson has been accused of shoplifting a “Harry Potter” DVD from a supermarket and punching a police officer in Taos, N.M.

Miss Anderson’s lawyer entered pleas of not guilty on behalf of the 57-year-old star to charges of battery on a police officer, resisting a police officer and shoplifting.

Taos County Magistrate Betty Martinez allowed Miss Anderson to seek medical treatment out of state after the pleas were entered Friday. Miss Martinez said she didn’t know why Miss Anderson was seeking medical treatment.

Miss Anderson, who won a Grammy for her 1970 hit “Rose Garden,” was arrested Jan. 24 at Smith’s Food & Drug Center.

According to a statement filed by Taos police officer Virgil Vigil, Miss Anderson asked him, “Do you know who I am?” when refusing to sign a citation after supermarket employees accused her of taking the DVD.

Miss Anderson reportedly balked several times when she was asked to go to a patrol car. When the officer asked if she was resisting arrest, Miss Anderson turned and punched him on the left forearm, Mr. Vigil said in his statement.
