Solamente Sickening

A little bird told me recently that Friend of Felt Up Terri R.'s suspicions that married "El Mariachi" director Robert Rodriguez' alleged fling with talent-challenged former Marilyn Manson arm candy Rose McGowan--who appears in his new movie "Grindhouse"--is all a big ruse to throw everyone off his real amor, boobalicious Salma Hayek.

Terri R. went to an art opening in San Antonio a few weeks ago, as is her wont, and saw a paen to the sultry Mexican spitfire painted by Rodriguez in collaboration with muralist George Yepes, and said, "If I was married to someone who painted a picture like like that of Salma Hayek, I would not be happy." Suffice it to say that if any of this story is true, his producing partner wife and mother of his five--count 'em FIVE--children, Elizabeth Avellan, ain't exactly chipper these days. Although, at least she's splitting with him after the "Sin City" and "Spy Kids" movies brought in el grande dinero...

Here's what RR had to say on Cinema Strikes Back about painting the show "Solamente Salma":
“It was actually George’s idea to use Salma because he had done a couple of paintings of her for my movies and he thought that would be a good connection since I’ve worked with her five or six times already, and the fact that we’re painting together, we might as well use her as our image and I was way into that because she is sort of an iconic image of a Mexican woman and a strong independent successful professional and many things all at once and an artist in her own right. Because of that iconic nature, and her face being a perfect specimen for painting — the lines of her face of her own could generate so much excitement in many different styles in many different lights — that it just seemed like such a natural. He came up with the idea that it would be ‘Solamente Salma.’”


Boo, Robert Rodriguez!



Hiss!

OK, maybe I'm incredibly behind the times, but I thought Salma was dating Josh Lucas? Am I hopelessly out of touch with who is doing whom in Hollyweird?

Salma and Josh broke up sometime ago and he was recently rumored to be pursuing Jessica Simpson (though I think she dissed him). I get my info from reading Felt Up's discarded US Weekly and Star magazines...
