Over the past few months or so there has been a great deal of speculation about just exactly what is going on between Ron Perelman (26th richest person in the US) and Gina Gershon. I mean throughout the summer it certainly looked like the two were a couple. There were some who speculated that maybe Gina was with Ron for the money or that Ron bought himself a Hollywood actress. While he certainly has the cash to do that, it also seems to me that he probably wouldn't be spending it on Gina Gershon. Sure, she is great, but if you are the 87th richest guy in the world and you are buying someone, are you going to buy Gina Gershon? Have you seen how she looks the past few months? What I would like to see Ron do if he were going to buy someone is to see how much money it would take to convince Tom Cruise to break it off with Katie Holmes. Wouldn't it be hilarious one day to see Ron and Katie together all of a sudden and Tom buying a new jet and finding a new wife.
Anyway, I was one of the people who thought Gina and Ron were more than friends, and they may very well be. Last night at the Waverly Inn though Ron and Gina were sitting at a table, but with Anna Chapman who was introduced to everyone as Ron's girlfriend. So, basically you have Ron and Gina who ran around all over Europe together on his yacht or doing something tropical somewhere. I remember bikinis and sun. Could have been a dream, but I think not. The couple are always seen together, but this Anna Chapman who is a psychiatrist is considered the girlfriend. Maybe they have an open relationship? I'm sure that Ron and Gina would say they are just friends. OK, lets say they are just friends, how come Gina hasn't dated anyone since she has been hanging out with Ron? No one, nada. All she does is go to events with Ron or on her own looking like a big mess. I know people thought that Gina and Bill Clinton were having a thing, but I think they have only met each other like twice. Not that you couldn't have a thing meeting twice, but, don't think so.
I just think it is a very interesting dynamic and it is something to talk about on a Friday.
