ryan’s having a model summer!

COMMITMENT-PHOBE Ryan Seacrest has flipped for a skinny-minnie social influencer who’s half his age, sources said. But pals believe the 46-year-old “American Idol” host’s dalliance with model Aubrey Paige Petcosky, 23, will be nothing more than a summer fling! “Ryan is enamored with Aubrey right now and they’ll have some summer fun but that’s about it,” sniffed a pal. “He’s proven in the past he can’t be with one woman over the long haul and I don’t see that changing.” The “Live with Kelly and Ryan” chatterbox’s longest relationship was with entrepreneur Shayna Taylor. When they met, she was 21, Ryan was 39, and they dated on and off for nearly a decade before officially splitting in July 2020. Before that, Ryan, who did not respond to a request for comment, dated actress Shana Wall from…

hypnotized reese fell to pieces!

RATTLED Reese Witherspoon was so wild with fear before making the 2014 film “Wild” that she needed hypnosis to cope with her panic attacks! “I had hypnosis, I was so scared!” admitted the 45-year-old Oscar winner. “I was having panic attacks for three weeks before I started. There was the nudity, sexuality and drug-use aspect — but also being alone on camera with no other actors!” The actress said there was nearly a month during the Oregon shoot when it was all on her shoulders as she performed without any other actors playing opposite her. “It was just me and a camera and a backpack,” she said in an interview. Reese revealed it was one of the hardest things she’s ever had to do, and “it changed me on a cellular level” — even though…

“THE O.C.” stars Rachel Bilson and Mischa Barton have reignited a 15-year-old feud, sources claimed, by bashing each other to the media and mutual friends! The mudslinging exploded in May when Mischa, 35, charged she was bullied on the set of the popular primetime teen drama. Rachel, 39, responded by slamming Mischa’s claims as “misinformation!” “There’s bitterness between them and it goes way back to their days on ‘The O.C.,’ when Mischa was clearly more popular, and Rachel didn’t like it,” spilled an insider. Mischa — who played Marissa Cooper on the show — was stung by Rachel’s dismissal of her claims and has told pals she’s fed up with what she believes is petty jealousy. “Mischa is putting the word out that Rachel needs to shut up or she’ll be sorry,” dished the insider.
