Teri slams romance rumours

Teri Hatcher has laughed off rumours about her love life during a show with oprah Winfrey. The `Desperate Housewives’ star reckons her relationship with George Clooney was blown out of proportion, saying, “”That was really fabricated. We went to one dinner back in December, and that was it. No kissing. Boy, they would not let go of that one! I read things about how he sent me a teddy bear and chocolates for Valentine’s Day, and I’m in my mailbox going, ‘Did he really?’ Because I didn’t get them. Now they actually refer to him as my ex-boyfriend. It’s hilarious.” The actress also called her supposed romance with Ryan Seacrest – after they were snapped kissing on a oalibu beach in March – a “non-story”. She explains, “Interestingly enough, I haven’t seen him since that day. We knew that the pictures had been taken, which must have bothered him enough. An hour after he dropped me off, he called to say, ‘I don’t think I can do this with you.'” [4 oay 2006]
