EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: ‘Sexiest woman in the world’ Madalina Ghenea yearns for a ‘real man’ after stealing the hearts of Leonardo DiCaprio, Gerard Butler and Michael Fassbender
She’s been dubbed the sexiest woman on the planet and beyond, and has captivated the hearts of Leonardo DiCaprio, Gerard Butler and Michael Fassbender — yet model and actress Madalina Ghenea remains on the lookout for a ‘real man’.
It had appeared the Romanian beauty and mother-of-one, 36, had found her match in Bulgarian tennis ace Grigor Dimitrov, who previously dated singer Nicole Scherzinger but, sadly, I hear they’ve split.
‘It seems I’ve been making the wrong choices,’ she tells me at the West End premiere of her new film, Deep Fear, in which she appears alongside former Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick. ‘I’ve been choosing kids instead of men, and I’m not talking about age,’ she blasts of her former flames.

‘If I’m going to find a partner, I need one who accepts the fact I work as a mother first of all, and as a producer, an actress and a model. I’m not talking about being a feminist and woman power and all that, but it’s hard to find a man who can share power.’
The actress played a young Sophia Loren in the 2021 film House Of Gucci after catching the eye of director Ridley Scott, who spotted her striking resemblance to the Italian icon.

Why money can’t buy happiness for artistic Daphne
I hope that friends will buoy up the spirits of inimitable fashion icon and ceaselessly inventive soul, Daphne Guinness
She’s always been, and always will be, my favourite Guinness. So I hope that friends will buoy up the spirits of inimitable fashion icon and ceaselessly inventive soul, Daphne Guinness.
The platinum-haired musician has revealed to fans that she’s battling ‘serious issues’ with her ‘physical health’. Without disclosing further details, Daphne, who received a £30 million divorce settlement from Greek shipping heir Spyros Niarchos, by whom she had three children, says: ‘I hope I survive to see the release of my record.’
Daphne then poignantly refers to her late pals, stylist Isabella ‘Issie’ Blow and designer Alexander McQueen.
‘I’m beginning to agree with my friends Alexander and Issie, culture is dead, and I’ve been fighting a losing battle,’ adds Daphne, 55, on social media site X.
‘Well music is a good battle to fight. And if I die on this hill so be it.’
Cara’s eco crusade costs the earth
The top model’s Initiative Earth, the company she’s established to help save the world, is still finding its way
While it appears trendy for celebrities to jump on the fighting climate change bandwagon – it is so far proving costly for Cara Delevingne.
I can disclose the top model’s Initiative Earth, the company she’s established to help save the world, is still finding its way.
Last year its £271,844 income was eclipsed by expenditure of £309,098, some of which went on educational workshops.
Camilla’s niece picks up his and hers pumpkins
Queen Camilla’s niece Ayesha Shand enjoys the rather more pagan spirit of Halloween
Her uncle-in-law King Charles may be the head of the Church of England, but Queen Camilla’s niece Ayesha Shand enjoys the rather more pagan spirit of Halloween.
To mark the spooky season, she has carved up his and hers pumpkins with her businessman boyfriend Luigi Ambrosi. The couple could be seen at a market holding up their pair of pumpkins, which they’ve named ‘Marv and Marsha’.
Ayesha, 28, is the daughter of Her Majesty’s brother, the late conservationist Mark Shand. She works alongside Princess Eugenie at the Hauser & Wirth art gallery as an associate director and moved to New York to work from their offices in the Big Apple.
Keep it to yourself, but…
Which happily married blue-blood toiling in London’s hospitality sector enlivens his working day — and that of his underlings — by lining up comely young women under his command, closing his eyes and identifying them by feeling their breasts. ‘They’re all for it — they love it,’ one of his chums assures me.
(Very) modern manners
Just as Dumfries House — saved by the King for the nation — prepares to stage a ceilidh next month, the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society issues new guidelines.
Dancers are encouraged to ‘explore both sides of the dance’ — male and female — irrespective of their sex, where previously they would have been separated into either side of the room by gender.
‘Brings out the inner anarchist in me,’ says my man north of the border, advising laddies and lassies to reel away to ‘the local nine-to-90-years-old dance’ or the Royal Caledonian Ball’.
Will barman spill Mick’s secrets?
Mixologist Salvatore Calabrese has shaken martinis for King Charles
Mixologist Salvatore Calabrese has shaken martinis for King Charles and mixed spirits for stars including Madonna and Mick Jagger, but he’s now planning to spill the secrets of the rich and famous in his autobiography.
‘I’ve wanted to do this for years,’ Salvatore tells me at the La Hechicera rum party at the Corinthia’s Velvet Bar. ‘It might ruffle some feathers,’ he warns, but adds: ‘It seems a shame to let these anecdotes die. It’s been difficult as I didn’t want to upset my famous friends while I’m still serving them.’
I should hope not. He charges his punters up to £5,550 for a cocktail.
Turning 75 next month is nothing to shout about, says Sixties star Lulu.
‘I won’t be having a celebration, it’s just a number and it’s just another day,’ she tells me.
‘The only thing that makes me feel old is when I wake up in the morning with aches, but my spirit keeps me young.’
She adds: ‘I’m very happy about getting older and I’m more comfortable in my skin.’
I hear Sir Paul McCartney and his daughter Stella are among the diners who have been quietly donating to The Felix Project at the Los Mochis restaurant in Notting Hill.
The pair have forked out £25,000 each, which will help feed gourmet meals to 135,000 Londoners hit hardest by the cost of living crisis.
‘By donating they’ve given back to a group of people who are facing a tough time,’ Los Mochis owner Markus Thesleff tells me.
