    Elisabetta Canalis Chooses Puppies Over Paparazzi Post-Clooney Split

    After all the hubbub over her recent breakup with George Clooney (though, let's be honest, it's been a long time coming), Elisabetta Canalis made her first public appearance sans man but with woman's best friend.

    E.C. stepped out yesterday walking her adopted doggies, donning shades and sweatpants and looking like quite the dumped diva as she made her way through Milan International Airport. And as much as we totally heart the gal for her animal-lovin' ways, we're a bit shocked…

    Cause what happened to all her post-split sex appeal?

    It may sound a little cruel, given that she was papped just one day after her split from Clooney to become the tabloid's top story, but this gorgeous gal is no media dummy.

    Remember a couple months ago when the buzz was that she and Georgey were heading for splitsville? Well, Elisabetta let her bangin' bikini body do the talking at the time, hitting up a couple yacht parties in Cannes instead of letting her relaysh woes get to her.

    And, trust, another hot bikini shot would have showed the notorious bachelor and two time People's sexiest man who's boss. Whereas the whole "sweats and four legged cuddle-buddy" combo signals some major break-up misery.

    It's only George Clooney after all, right?


    We totally know we'd be totally vegging out with a bowl of ice-cream and the Bridget Jones series if G ditched us, but it would have been awesome if her first public appearance as a singleton looked a little more like this.

    Ya know, show George what he'll be missing when he's in Como with the dudes.

    Guess it's on to the next one for George. Better luck next time, E! We still love ya!
