Jesse Metcalfe And Cara Santana Split After (Or Just Before) He Was Pictured Getting Cozy With Two Different Women On The Same Day
Before the ink was even dry on a Daily Mail report featuring pictures of Desperate Housewives alum Jesse Metcalfe gallivanting with two separate women over the weekend, Us Weekly is now reporting that Jesse and his fiancee of 5 years, Cara Santana, have broken up after 13 years together. The Daily Mail reports that Jesse and Cara were last seen together as recently as January 4th, and that Cara was “completely blindsided” by pictures of Jesse “with his arms wrapped around a tall blonde woman”, later identified as Australian actress Jade Albany, “just hours after” he was spotted “holding hands” with Hungarian model Livia Pillman. But the Us Weekly insider insists Cara and Jesse were already broken up by January 22, the day the pictures were taken. In fact, Us reports that Cara moved out on January 4th, the last day they were seen together in public. This is the type of messy crossover that dreams are made of!
First a little background. I know this story reads like a manuscript written by a confused owl (who?), but trust me, it’s pretty easy to follow. Jesse used to be on Desperate Housewives, he went to rehab for “alcohol issues” in March of 2007 (he and his then girlfriend broke up in April of that year after he was caught cheating), and has more recently been starring in Hallmark movies. His (now ex) fiance Cara is also an actress. She was in The Santa Clarita Diet and is also, according to Us, good friends with Meghan Markle. We’ll leave a shroud of mystery surrounding Jade and Livia until they’re spotted canoodling with someone more famous. DM reports:
Cara Santana was ‘completely blindsided’ by reports that her fiance, Jesse Metcalfe, stepped out with multiple women over the weekend.
The 35-year-old designer and actress was nowhere in sight this weekend as Jesse stepped out with a pretty blonde after holding hands with Hungarian model Livia Pillman.
Sources revealed to DailyMail.com that Cara was ‘completely blindsided’ by photographs of her fiance being affectionate with other women.
Cara and Jesse have been engaged for nearly five years after he popped the question in August 2016 following more than half a decade of dating.
While DM seems invested in Cara as Trembling Woman Most Egregiously Wronged, Cara herself, it seems, is not about to go down looking like a punk, because Us Weekly reports:
The end of an era. Jesse Metcalfe and his fiancée, Cara Santana, have called it quits after more than a decade together, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.
“They’ve split and are not together,” the source says. “He did not cheat on her.”
A second insider tells Us that the John Tucker Must Die actor “moved out” the day after they attended The Art of Elysium’s 13th annual celebration together on January 4.
Here’s Cara and Jesse at that event. Just think, if we’re believing Cara’s timeline, she already had her shit packed when this photo was taken. I’m picturing them returning home and her being all, “peace out, bro” before jumping in a U-Haul idling outside, still wearing that dress.
And to think, exactly a month prior to that, Jesse was calling Cara “A woman of worth” on Instagram.
The absolute nerve. What, was the set of Desperate Housewives doubling as symposium for cheaters who want to get caught? But whichever timeline is more accurate, I think everybody can agree on one thing; that there must be some way to blame this all on Meghan.
