Apologies to all of the Gossip Girl fans who wanted Lily and Rufus to be a couple in real life as well as onscreen—Kelly Rutherford says it's not so.

"We love each other...as friends!" she told me about her relationship with Matthew Settle at last night's Chagoury Couture fashion show.

Although both are newly single after weathering messy divorces, Kelly says the sparks stop flying when the cameras stop rolling.

"You do it so much in the office that you don't need to do it when you go home," she explained.

Kelly also gave props to fellow single mama Sandra Bullock...

"I think it's such a wonderful thing...to have this beautiful little boy in her life and focus on him," she said of Sandy's decision to adopt little Louis. "It's certainly helped me through a tough time."

Fellow partygoer Paris Hilton was succinct when asked for her thoughts on the news that Sandra was indeed divorcing Jesse James.

"I would dump him, too!" the newly single heiress told me.
