ASHTON & MILA

LOVE-FEST IN N.Y.C.

If things had turned out differently, Ashton Kutcher would have spent Sept. 22 gearing up for his seventh wedding anniversary with Demi Moore. Instead, the actor was enjoying a laid-back visit with his girlfriend of nearly six months, Mila Kunis, in New York City, where she's filming The Angriest Man in Brooklyn. Over a romantic dinner of mussels and rose wine at the West Village restaurant Spasso, the former That '70s Show costars "were kissing and acted very cuddly," says a patron. "They had great chemistry and weren't shy to show off their love." The following day the pair-dressed in matching T-shirts-watched a Chicago Bears game at a local bar, then went for gelato.

When they're in L.A., Kunis, 29, is a frequent fixture on Kutcher's Two and a Half Men set, and the pair spend nearly every night together at his $8 million home. "At first he wanted to date around," says a source close to the 34-year-old actor, "but he has found a nice balance with Mila between his work and love life. He's really happy."

Can the same be said for his ex? A gaunt-looking Moore, 49 (who recently spent a week in Greece with friends), surfaced leaving L.A.'s Sunset Tower Hotel after dinner with friends Sept. 19 and is doing her best to "try and move on," says a source close to her, adding she is dipping back into the singles scene and "dating."

Kutcher certainly isn't looking back. "He is so much more comfortable with Mila, and his family adores her," a Kutcher pal says of the actor, who has taken her back home to Iowa. Adds the source close to him: "But seeing one person is a long way from settling down again."

According to the New York Daily News, which obtained an early copy of his memoir Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, the couple went to a marriage counselor on Jan. 4, 2011-the day after he left office-and "The minute we sat down, the therapist turned to me and said, 'Maria wanted to come here today and to ask about a child-whether you fathered a child with your housekeeper Mildred,'" he writes. "I told the therapist, 'It's true.' " Says a source close to the former couple: "Maria was not happy about the book. She did not want the dirty laundry re-aired."
