George Clooney’s ex, Elisabetta Canalis, is immersing herself in some dance therapy to mend her broken heart. She’s moved on — to Los Angeles and the new season of  Dancing with the Stars that is. Three months after she and George confirmed their split, the Italian model and TV personality opened up about the end of their two-year romance and its aftermath in the Italian mag Chi. “At the end of the day I have always seen the end of my relationships as a personal failure,” she said. “There is nothing ever pretty [about] saying goodbye.” Several pals told Us mag that Elisabetta was eager to take her relationship with Clooney to the next level — i.e. marriage — but the notorious bachelor balked. And rumor has it, George’s rebound relationship with Stacey Keibler–another DWTS alum!–is going strong. Elisabetta explained, “I’m a bit of a tomboy, but when it comes to love I am a doormat,” she said. “I’m looking for men who can give me security.” The beauty added that she might have bad, unhealthy taste in guys. “I have always seen cold and controlled men as the right ones for me,” she jabbed. “You have to accept that Prince Charming who is coming to save you is not going to happen — it works against you.” (A little jaded, girlfriend?)

Her Dancing with the Stars gig and the big to move to Los Angeles, it seems, arrived at just the right time. She said she’s surprisingly discovered peace in Hollywood. “Here in Los Angeles I have found serenity. I’ve also found work. It was a difficult time for me, but you have to get on with things.” And Canalis is hopeful about future romantic prospects, too. “In the past I would self destruct when it came to love – I was immature, throwing myself into things but now times have changed, I want a relationship where you understand the other person.” Here here, Elisabetta, and keep going on with your bad self in these ultra-cool Ray Ban aviators.  –rpuccia
