The rehearsals didn’t stop for Elisabetta Canalis just because she turned 33 on Monday! The Italian model and former girlfriend to George Clooney was all smiles as she made her way to Dancing with the Stars rehearsals in Los Angeles, Calif. 

Elisabetta is paired up with a new sexy Dancing pro, Val Chmerkovskiy. The last name may sound familar as Val is the brother to ballroom bad boy Maksim, who is paired with athlete Hope Solo.  Battle of the brothers! Who do you think has a better chance at the mirror ball trophy? Sound off in the comments.

As we all know, Elisabetta was placed on America’s radar thanks to her relationship with A-list actor George Clooney. Over the summer, the two announced their split but it wasn’t until recently that the model/actress opened up about her split. 

“At the end of the day I have always seen the end of my relationships as a personal failure,” the 32-year-old tells Italian magazine Chi (via Us). “There is nothing ever pretty in saying goodbye.”

“I’m a bit of a tomboy, but when it comes to love I am a doormat,” she added. “I’m looking for men who can give me security … The end of a relationship is complicated.”
