Diane Von Furstenberg On The Time She Hooked Up With Richard Gere
Diane Von Furstenberg once put her logo on paper towels but did she ever put it on a gerbil cozy? I kid! People reports that, on a recent episode of Whatch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Diane Von Furstenberg got into the time she got on top of Richard Gere in a game cleverly titled “DVF or WTF?” The sad part of this is that Julianne Moore, who talked about getting fired from Can You Ever Forgive Me?, had to participate and she’s won an Oscar. In the last decade. So she doesn’t need to be lowering herself into this mess.
Andy read a series of true/false statements about Diane and Julianne and Andy had to guess while Julianne secretly mind-murdered her publicist.
“Back in the day, DVF had a brief love affair with Richard Gere,” the first fact read.
Cohen guessed the statement was true, while Moore said it was false, saying, “I’m going to go with ‘What the fuck?’ “
Von Furstenberg cheekily responded, “Well, it was a fuck,” to huge cheers and laughs from the audience.
Yes, Pretty Woman – get on that Officer and a Gentleman dick! According to The Andy Warhol Diaries (it’s my comfort book), back in the heady late 70s/early 80s, DVF and Richard Gere were satellite members of the heady NYC/Studio 54 celebrity circle that included Halston, Liza, Warhol, Bianca Jagger and the like so chances are Diane and Richard probably did have some sort of cocaine-dusted assignation at one point.
In other DVF revelations from WWHL, it was revealed that, much like Rose Nylund on The Golden Girls, Diane likes herring. And she likes to swim for a long time.
Among the other facts revealed about the designer were that she always keeps herring stocked in her fridge and that she can swim for two hours straight.
So, Diane Von Furstenberg could catch hot celebrity dick back in the day, is buoyant, and might be slightly redolent of fish. Good to know.
