In her book Going Off Script, Giuliana Rancic accuses Jerry O'Connell, whom she dated from 2003-04, of cheating on her with Geri Halliwell. "I was being two-timed for one of the lesser Spices?" she wrote, incredulous, adding that when she confronted him, "He had as much emotion as the customer-service representative who tells you your bags missed the flight."
Fighting words, to be sure, and the actor has finally responded to the claims that made waves at the beginning of this month when Rancic, 40, was heavily promoting her book.
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, O'Connell, 41, gave a terse response to a question about the accusations: "For those who don't know," he said, "Giuliana Rancic is a personality … and she wrote a book and we dated and then we didn't date and, um, I was in the book."

Appearing on Wednesday as a guest on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, Jerry O'Connell shared the story of how he had to tell his daughters that their mother was once married to Uncle Jesse from Full House.
The show's other guest was Full House star Lori Loughlin, and host Andy Cohen couldn't resist bringing up his guests' shared connection with John Stamos: Loughlin's character was married to Stamos' on the show, and in real life, O'Connell's wife Rebecca Romijn was previously married to Stamos.

Wonder how many takes Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell's family photo required?
In a week that saw a holiday homage to awkward family photos – from Kelly Clarkson's kooky Christmas card to Mena Suvari's purr-fect picture – the actors went a bit more old-school (and comfortable) with their card.
"Happy Holidays from all nine of us!!" Romijn, 40, wrote alongside a Twitter pic of her big family, all of whom – from the couple's twin girls Dolly and Charlie to their three dogs and two cats – were clad in bright green Christmas pajamas decorated with snowmen and pine trees.

Jerry O'Connell says he got "a little bit of a surprise" when he arrived on the set of his new sitcom, We Are Men, and took a look at his wardrobe – a collection of Speedos.
"It is probably the most nerve-wracking job for me to put those on every morning," O'Connell, 39, said at the 2013 CBS Summer TCA Press Tour, admitting that it's a turnaround from being known "as the fat kid from Stand By Me."
But the actor, whose show debuts Sept. 30 on CBS, says putting on the skimpy swimwear "is something that I have embraced. I have joined a gym. I have started drinking light beer. It is just something I am going to have to deal with in this role."
