Behind The Vacation Photos

[BlindGossip]  You probably saw lots of photos of celebrities on vacation over the holidays. For example, there were photos of this attractive acting couple, relaxing together, all cozy and kissy and handsy. Sweet, right? Well, the real gossip is in what the cameras didn’t show you: the guy’s real boyfriend (also an actor), who accompanied the couple on the vacation but managed to stay just out of camera range. Yes, the relationship you see in pretty pictures is just a professional bearding arrangement, desperately trying to look like a real relationship.

    Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively?

    It seemed a bit staged when their Thanksgiving family photos were leaked to the press. He’s hot, straight or gay, and I’d still watch him in whatever he does. I hate that Hollywood thinks a leading man needs to be straight to be believable! Straight guys can play gay guys, so why can’t it be the other way around?

      Could be why Elisabetta Canalis said their relationship was like a “father/daughter” relationship.

    My first ever post is the first comment here!

    It sounded a lot like Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian until the beard part, they have been all over each other in pictures. But by the way they got together I guess it can’t be them, can it ?

    • WickedWhitney says

      This is who i initially thought of, so many photos of them making out (and making me sick!). Her bf does have a “gayface” (no offense) but I have no idea who he is….and does anyone seriously even care about her anymore? Maybe back in day when she was bearding for Zac and HSM was a big hit but now? Now she’s just a poorly dressed young starlet who’s unlikely to go on and win any major acting awards…..

      I think this is Penn and Zoe.

    Maybe off-the-wall but Jared Padalecki/Genevieve Cortese and Jensen Ackles in NYC? Jared was spotted there a few times between Christmas and New Year’s with his wife.

      • Layale says

        lol! Besides, we might be having a warmer-than-usual winter, but I doubt anyone was out at a beach in their swimsuits getting photographed over the holiday. True, the blind doesn’t say they were in their swimsuits, but still.

  4. Stackhouse says

    You’re not talking about LeeAnn, are you? Wasn’t her last husband supposedly homosexual as well?

  6. SamAloud says

    First time poster here…

    My guess would be Austin Butler and Vanessa Hudgens, i guess… First thing that came to mind.

  7. OTRAKelly says

    This looks just like the picture I saw recently of Vanessa Hudges and Austin Butler. There’s lots out there talking about all the PDA, so seems they may be trying a little too hard.

    • Mermaid says

      “desperately” being a clue to Penn’s boyfriend who was there: Shawn Pyform from Desperate Housewives.

      • Mermaid says

        Oh, and ‘pretty pictures’ being a nod to the album Sketches for (My Sweetheart the Drunk) of Jeff Buckley’s whom Penn is playing in an upcoming movies. i.e. sketches are like pictures. But that may be a huge stretch on my part.

    • ivyleaguer says

      not for me it wouldn’t…but I doubt Leann took at that bad publicity and did all that to her hubby to marry a gay man. Plus they’re married, right? the blind is about new couple.

      • mcwmomma says

        i was being a bit facetious abt leann/eddie….but being a “new couple”, i gess they are still considered newlyweds? idk….

  8. ClueMeIn says

    Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler or whatever his name is. The DM (Daily Mail) posted tons of pictures of them on vacation. Ridiculous.

  9. Sweetie Pie says

    Penn Badgley, Zoe Kravitz and Shawn Pyfrom (as the boyfriend). “Desperately” being a nod to Shawn’s role on Desperate Housewives.

  10. riddlemethis says

    Refuse to believe this is Ryan Gosling. So it has to be either Reynolds or Cooper. Both were doing the Xmas girlfriend family thing

  11. Quinnie88 says

    Seacreast and Hough? Secret boyfriend being her brother Derek? Lol ive seen photo ops that look really suspicious with those three.

  12. poiuytrewq says

    First time poster! Love this site!

    Couple: Penn Badgley and Zoe Kravitz. Guy’s real bf: Shawn Pyfrom.

  13. Brittany920 says

    vanessa hudgens and austin butler were all over each other in some pics last week. they were on vacation, and the chick in the picture reminds me of her!

  14. cynthiamichelle6 says

    These are the couples I remember seeing vacation pictures of over holidays:
    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley/Jason Stathom
    Julianne Hough/Ryan Seacrest
    Rachel Zoe/Rodger Berman
    LeAnn Rimes/Eddie Cibrian
    Kyra Sedgwick/Kevin Bacon

    • ivyleaguer says

      Seacrest is out because it says actor
      so is Roger Berman — not an actor
      Kyra is not Kevin’s new girlfriend, so this out

      Jason Stathom is a good one
      another one I saw was Zach Braff and Taylor Badgley

  15. DinkinFlicka says

    “desperately” makes me think of Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz. But why would Eduardo need/want a beard? Does that mean that Eva is the one in need of a beard or that the male is more famous? If it’s the latter, I’m going to go with Tom Sturridge, Sienna Miller and Robert Pattinson.

  16. redstilettos says

    George and Stacy? But she’s not an actress. I would guess Julianne and Ryan, but he’s not an actor.

  17. bedeilas says

    Either Bradley and Zoe or Derek and Minka. I’m leaning more towards Derek and Minka as the whole gift basket thing was a little over the top. What’s he hiding…the boyfriend in the dark?

  18. SouthJerseyGirl says

    Ryan Seacrest and Julieann Hough. Understand him using her. Not sure why she’s using him.

  19. petunya says

    Gonna say LeAnne Rimes and Eddie Cibrian they have a tone of pics in Maui. I cant stand these ppl though

  20. LikeIceCream says

    I haven’t seen a whole lot of vacation photos, so I just pored through the gallery at Eonline until I saw what looked like water and bathing suits. I found one of Penn Badgley and Zoe Kravitz. I don’t know who Zoe is, but I’ve heard rumors about Penn (I think). So that is my guess!

    Pssst, Ace – you spelled “vacation” incorrectly. Or perhaps that was intentional… someone getting a little “V-Action” on the beach?

  21. Okayeah says

    I’m going to go with Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, although really it could be anybody! They were apparently laying the PDA on pretty thick, although I couldn’t bring myself to look at the pics…

  22. TheOtherIan says

    Penn Badgley and Zoe Kravitz, Penn’s BF being Shawn Pryform(SP?) of Desperate Housewives.

    • GingieSnap says

      Exactly what I was thinking. MSN even titled the pictures “Julianne and Ryan’s PDA-Filled Vacation”. Yahhhh righttttt!

    • Okayeah says

      Nice to know I wasn’t the only one who went there…LOL but as I pointed out above, can’t be them!

      • gumbii2662 says

        Gah, I missed that detail. He was in Knocked Up, but he was playing himself, so I guess that doesn’t count… Although, isn’t the fact that he’s pretending to be straight make him an actor? ;D

  23. YesMaam says

    “Happy” Monday BG! :)

    My guess is also Vanessa & Austin.

    Weren’t they at a Lakers game last week making out? They are ALWAYS bloody kissing as though they’re near coitous or just finished!

    I don’t recall The Cloonster & Kiebs making out. Holding hands, mostly.

  24. Unprovencrimes says

    Has to be Reyonlds and Lively. Type their name into google news and it brings up a ton of articles of them together for the holidays

  25. ivyleaguer says

    the blind says “gossip”: gossip girl’s Penn Badgley
    and “desperate”: his boyfriend Shawn Pyform or however you spell his name so I am sold on this blind being about Penn and Zoe.

    • ivyleaguer says

      ^^ oh the pic must be a clue too. So Lively and Reynolds are out as no one is at the beach in Vancouver during Christmas holidays

  26. WhoSays says

    I’m also going with the Vanessa and Austin guess. I’ve seen pics of Vanessa with a similar bikini way back. Maybe, that could be a clue?

  27. scarlettone says

    This is without question Penn Badgley, Zoë Kravitz and Shawn Pyfrom for the hidden boyfriend. Penn and Zoe were recently papped on a vacay in Miami. However, Penn has been long been rumored to be seeing Shawn Pyfrom who happens to be on: “Desperate” Housewives. Zoe is the beard to have around to deflect the truth that these two dudes are on vacay together and are a couple. They have a habit of meeting up at various place i.e. Iceland. “Desperate” = Desperate Housewives and “Gossip” = Gossip Girls. The picture even looks like them. FYI -Vanessa and Austin Butler are the real deal and in no way is that dude gay.

    • bayougirl2 says

      actaully you don’t know that they’re the real deal, and they were the first people I thought of. the amount of PDA from them is almost screaming showmance.

  28. blackbird71 says

    This is supposed to be Penn, Zoe, and Shawn but there were twitter pictures of him in Bali at the time Penn and Zoe were in Miami.

  29. kmam89 says

    Hey everyone- first time commenting on blind :)

    It has to be Vanessa and Austin right? If she can beard for Efron she can do it again!

  30. mrkitty says

    What about Eva and whats his name? It mentions sweet and pretty and Eva mended was in the Thierry mugler ads for angel?
