    The Dancing With the Stars contestant and former Clooney girlfriend reveals in Italian journalist Bruno Vespa's new book Questo Amore (This Love) that her relationship with one of Hollywood's biggest hunks was "more of a father-daughter relationship," which she "was unable to clarify...till now."

    Canalis further "clarifies" her feelings towards Clooney as: "the person who valued my feminine side the most" and "one of the best people I have met from a charitable point of view," explaining, "he has been special for me, and very important, just as a father would be."

    So why the breakup in June?

    Canalis denied the marriage-issue rumors as the breaking point, revealing, "George and I never spoke of marriage nor of having kids...I don't put limits to the possibility of having them, but neither George nor I had ever envisaged having kids together. The end of the relationship was not caused by a marriage issue, but instead by our personal needs."

    And apparently George's personal needed involved a blonde?!

    As for Clooney's current girlfriend, Dancing alum Stacy Keibler, Canalis kept it classy with only sincere words for him: "George is a real gentleman even in his private life. I was very much respected both as a woman and partner."

    And we respect that post-breakup maturity! But we wonder how "Dad" Clooney will take the fatherly comparison.
