Elisabetta Canalis, Steve-O: Actress Wants Second Chance With MTV Star

Elisabetta Canalis may have learned to be tight-lipped when it comes to ex-boyfriend George Clooney, but the "Dancing With the Stars" alum is taking a different approach with regard to former flame Steve-O. "Steve has a lot of strength and humor," Canalis said in an interview with the Italian magazine A. "It was one of the most important relationships of my life and it doesn't feel as if it is over yet."

Canalis and the "Jackass" star first made news when they were spotted pashing earlier this year in January at multiple locations in Los Angeles. But the unlikely couple parted ways not long afterward, after the seriously sober Steve-O reportedly tired of the Italian actress' hard-partying lifestyle. In the interview with A, Canalis, 33, said she'd like to "try again" with the recovering drug addict, 37, who dumped her in April.

But Canalis harbors no same hope for Clooney, whom she dated from 2009 to 2011 (Clooney has since moved on with former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler): "That relationship is over, it's all in the past," she says. "Every time I say something about it, it gets blown all out of proportion."
