loses another man Unlucky-in-love Geri Halliwell is back on the
single scene once again. The former Spice Girl dumped boyfriend Hollywood
actor Jerry O'Connell at the weekend because he was "too laddish
and immature". The little and large couple - he is 6ft 3ins and
she is 5ft 2ins - met while filming the Fat Slags movie in London
two months ago and, in true Geri-style, she fell madly in love. Jerry,
29, and the 31-year-old singer were spotted holding hands all round
London before flying back to his home in LA together earlier this
month. The Scream 2 actor was even caught carrying a copy of Ginger
Spice's autobiography on the way to the airport so he could get to
know the singer a little better. But alarm bells started ringing when
he dismissed Gezza's companionship in an interview. "I live in
LA so it was nice to have a tour guide who knows where they are going
in London," he said recently.
apparently seen herself as something more than a tour guide in Jerry's
life. She was spotted crying in an LA street on the Sunday afternoon
after their split and was comforted by some girlie pals. "She
finished with him last weekend," confirms a close friend. "Jerry
was too much of a fraternity boy - he was a real lad who liked to
party. It just wasn't Geri's style. "She is much more low-key
and doesn't go out to clubs or parties. She took him out to the Electric
Cinema restaurant in Portobello Road when they were in London and
to San Lorenzo with his parents. "Once they were in LA Jerry
was keen on hitting the bars with his mates and Geri realised they
were incompatible. "She is gutted as it's yet another relationship
that hasn't worked out. But she realises it was best to call it a
day with Jerry. "It wasn't going to end up with marriage and
kids, so there wasn't much point continuing when they had totally
different social lives." So different in fact that it later emerged
that Jerry was still engaged to American telly presenter Giuliana
Depandi. Now he joins an illustrious list of the former Spice Girl's
lost loves - including Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, Chris Evans, Damian
Warner and Robbie Williams. It seems Geri's dog Harry is the only
male in her life she can depend on...
ATTENDS LILI CLAIRE FOUNDATION BENEFIT

and on fiancee Giuliana. Apparently Jerry's fling with the British pop
star occurred when Giuliana told Jerry she needed more time to think
before accepting his proposal.

just my tour guide in London."

Geri could do with seeing a copy," she adds, cuttingly. Giuliana,

on an intense relationship and were hardly out of each other's sight

went out a few times. I don't know if I'll be contacting her again.
I wish her all the best. I love Giuliana very much and I want to stay

he certainly is trying hard, according to Giuliana. "Jerry got
back at the end of September and started ringing me soon after,"
she says. "I was playing it cool at first, and only last week
did I agree to see him again. We went on our official 'first' date
on Friday. It was really romantic as he took us to the first place
we ever went to on a date. He is now professing his love to me nearly
every minute of the day."
whirlwind fling with Jerry is the latest in a string of relationships
to go wrong. Last year the Sunday Mirror revealed how she begged penniless
former drug addict Demian Warner to marry her. Then, after imposing
a strict pre-nuptial contract on him, she dumped him. She has previously
dated Chris Evans and Robbie Williams and now makes no secret of her
desperation to find a husband.
was said to be so convinced Jerry could be "the one" that
she introduced him to her parents over dinner at swanky London restaurant
San Lorenzo. Geri has a house in LA, but after telling friends she
hoped to make a new life there with Jerry, she ditched him last weekend.
A pal says: "Geri wants kids and a man who wants to settle down.
She liked Jerry - but he was just too young, wanting to go out to
bars and parties with all his friends."
says: "I suppose it is likely I will bump into Geri Halliwell
one day as she is often in LA." Laughing, she adds: "I will
be courteous and say, 'Thank you for showing my boyfriend around London
while he was away - you are obviously a great tour guide!"'
quote from Jerry was taken from E!
O'Connell: "Nothing scares me about Halloween. It's just a good
day to watch women. They put on their underwear and bras and pairs
of very high-heeled shoes, and if the underwear is red, they're like,
'I'm a bad devil,' or they put on pink underwear and say, 'I'm a little
baby.' White and they're an angel. I love Halloween."
AND GERI HALLIWELL SPLIT

and Jerry Call It Quits
couple Geri Halliwell and Jerry O'Connell have split after just a
month together due to the actor's "immaturity". The Fat
Slags co-stars spent most of September and early October this year
enjoying a hot romance but O'Connell reportedly left the former Spice
Girl unimpressed with his wacky humor. A pal of the Look At Me star
says, "As has happened in the past things started well and they
enjoyed each other's company. But after a while it all started to
go wrong. Geri thought his sense of humor was immature and he found
her too possessive. She's upset about it all. She thought she may
be able to make things work this time but her miserable track record
with men continues."

Geri look for property in LA, but it remains to be seen if he actually

Jerry and Harry hit it off
Halliwell drew up a list of her 36 - yes, 36 - essential requirements
in a man, last but not least was, 'Likes my dog." So the sight
of new squeeze Jerry O'Connnell bonding with her beloved pooch Harry
last week must have set the former Spice Girl's hear a-flutter! The
tender moment, which took place while Jerry, 29, and Geri, 31, were
out walking near the singer's London home, means that hunky actor
Jerry has already met nearly all Geri's tough requirements, outlined
in her autobiography, Just For The Record.
demands was that her man must be good-looking and of average to tall
build. He must also be aged between 28 and 38, have a healthy bank
balance and have free time to be with her. Well, Jerry definetely
ticks all those boxes.
So does this
mean Geri has finally found The One? We'll just have to wait and see.
But one thing's for certain - if he is Geri's ideal man, and he's
had a moment to flick through her book, he'll know exactly what's
coming next. "I definetely want to have children," she wrote.
So let's hope Jerry's the fatherly type!
Geri's spokesman was quick to deny rumours that Jerry is already engaged
to Amercan TV presenter Giuliana Depandi. He said, "He did go
out with her for a few months but they're no longer together. There
was no engagement." We're glad to hear it! After all, it's about
time Geri met the right man.

says, "Jerry proposed to Giuliana while they were in London [where
he's filming Fat Slags] in August. They went ring shopping, but then
she wanted to wait. When Giuliana returned to L.A., they broke up
over the phone." A source close to O'Connell claims Jerry broke
up with Giuliana before he met his new gal pal, Geri Halliwell, 31,
who plays his assistant in Fat Slags. Either way, O'Connell wasted
no time hooking up again. Giuliana, 27, says, "I wish him all

for Geri and Jerry
To say she's
been unlucky in love would be putting it mildly, but that hasn't stopped
Geri Halliwell hunting for Mr. Right. And the latest in a long line
of contenders for the job is actor Jerry O'Connell, who's been seen
on the 31-year-old singer's arm in London this week.
Jerry - who, at 6ft 3in, towers over Geri by 13 inches - is certainly
a good catch. The 29-yerar-old has appeared in movies including Stand
By Me, Scream 2 and Jerry Maguire and once dated Buffy star Sarah
Michelle Gellar. So far he appears serious about Geri, having introduced
her to his parents, who joined the couple for dinner at Knightsbridge

- will work out.

he had 74 stitches after he was bitten by a dog, so the jury's still
out on that one).
BREAKUP MENTIONED IN NY POST
gossip about Jerry and Giuliana's break up appeared in the New York
Post. The very unreliable 'source' has a few well known facts wrong
(Jerry was filming "Fat Slags", not "The Winning Season").
Although Giuliana did take a vacation in early September - it's questionable
that she went to see Jerry 'last Friday' or that any of the events mentioned
ever took place.

New York Post. New York, N.Y.: Sep 27, 2003. pg. 010
and steamy eight-month romance between "Kangaroo Jack" Jerry
O'Connell and gorgeous E! news frontwoman Giuliana is kaput. "Jerry
is filming 'The Winning Season' in London with Geri [Ginger Spice]
Halliwell right now," our spy said. "Giuliana went over
to see him, and he brought her on set and introduced her to Geri.
He kept making fun of Geri and how gross she was the entire time.
Then, last Friday, he looks at Giuliana and says, 'Let's just get
engaged. You can go pick out your ring tomorrow.' Giuliana was like,
'Lets just wait until we get to Los Angeles. Why now?' And Jerry got
upset, and they broke up basically because she turned him down."
The next day Giuliana flew back to L.A. and received news that O'Connell
and Halliwell were an item. "Geri's publicist is now saying Giuliana
and Jerry broke up in June. And Jerry's people are blaming her. It's
gross," our source says. Giuliana declined comment.
