If you’re going to reveal you’ve slept with a famous actor, what better place to do so than on a TV show, right? And that’s exactly what Diane von Furstenberg did when she recently let everyone know she once got very close to Richard Gere.
On Thursday, March, 7, the legendary designer, 72, appeared on Watch What Happens Live and found herself playing a true or false game called “DVF or WTF” with host Andy Cohen and fellow guest Julianne Moore. The first statement everyone was left to ponder was, “Back in the day, DVF had a brief love affair with Richard Gere.”
While Andy, 50, guessed it was true, the Still Alice star, 58, went with false. And well, the former was spot on, as Diane answered, “Well, it was a f–k,” to the delight of the audience.
Diane is currently married to businessman Barry Diller, while the Office and a Gentleman star, 69, is married to Alejandra Silva. The latter just said their “I dos” in 2018. “I’m the happiest man in the universe,” Richard once told Hello! magazine of his marriage. “How could I not be? I’m married to a beautiful woman who is smart, sensitive, committed to helping people, who’s fun, patient, who knows how to forgive, who’s a great cook and who makes the best salads in the world!”
But the Golden Globes winner wasn’t done there, as he added, “Alejandra meditates, she’s a vegetarian, a great mother, has the touch of an angel, and she’s also Spanish — the land of kings and queens, of Cervantes and Bunuel. You can’t get any better than that.”
The pair recently welcomed their first child together, a baby boy, in February. Richard also shares 19-year-old son Homer James Jigme with ex-wife Carey Lowell. Alejandra is also mom to a 6-year-old son named Albert from a previous marriage.
So apologies to anyone who wanted the Diane and Richard good times to continue.
