Carmen and Dave's Romantic Getaway
With news of the Brad Pitt-Jennifer Aniston split rocking Hollywood, we thought it would be a good moment to check in on some star relationships that are going well. Carmen Electra recently shared some of the details of her romantic holiday getaway with rocker-husband Dave Navarro. "We went to Santa Barbara to Bacara (Resort and Spa)," she revealed at the Volkswagen 2005 Jetta launch party at L.A. club The Lot. "It was supposed to be our honeymoon but it rained the whole time. So we're going to plan to go to an island, maybe go to Hawaii or something. But it was beautiful. It just rained. So we had a lot of spa time. We did a lot of treatments and massage and stuff like that. I love to get massaged. Dave's the opposite because he doesn't like to be touched. He was really bored but I had a great time. We didn't go anywhere. We watched movies and we stayed in the room. It was very romantic."
Rosario Dawson, who arrived at the party holding hands with her beau, Sex and the City star Jason Lewis, gushed about their trip to Maui. "I went for the New Year. It was my first time," she said. "I was staying with a bunch of friends and they have this little commune-almost thing that's set up where they eat their own vegetables. Maui's beautiful. The water was pretty freezing but we ended up doing a lot of waterfalls and natural pools kind of thing, which was really nice. It was so gorgeous. We had this really incredible experience. (Jason and I) missed Thanksgiving and Christmas together because our families are on separate coasts, so it was nice to do New Year's together."
Meanwhile, blink-182's Travis Barker and his wife, former Playboy centerfold and Miss USA Shanna Moakler, chatted at the Jetta party about their upcoming MTV reality show, Meet the Barkers. "We've been filming for like six months," Moakler told us. "We wanted to be totally real. It's basically him being a musician, me being an actress, raising our children." Added Barker: "She's a nude model and an actress so, right off the bat, you probably think, 'Not a good mom,' but she's an amazing mom. We have a 1-year-old and a 5-year-old. They're my first priority besides my wife. (The show is) super sincere. It's so sincere. I'm the first person to say reality television sucks and I don't like it and I don't watch it. But this is so genuine and sincere." The show is set to begin airing in the spring. Stay tuned...
