_

Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the stars who found love, suffered heartbreak or experienced some other major event in their love lives in mid-October 2022… Romance, showmance or something else entirely…? On the Oct. 9 episode of "Watch What Happens Live," Andy Cohen offered to set up Ashley Darby and Luke Gulbranson after the mother of two revealed that a fan said she and the male model — whom she described as "hot" — should hook up. Just a few days later, the "Real Housewives of Potomac" star and the "Summer House" personality connected at BravoCon in New York City. "It was nice. We had a nice chat, and I look forward to chatting more throughout the weekend," Luke told People magazine on Oct. 15, adding that Ashley is "pretty." He told Us Weekly, meanwhile, that he and Ashley "had [a] friendly conversation" that was "actually really cute" as they left BravoCon together the previous evening. During a separate interview, Ashley told Us Weekly that she and Luke exchanged numbers and had been texting and "chatting it up" ever since. "He's a really nice guy and he's very cute," said the recently single reality star, who split from her husband of nearly a decade, Michael Darby, earlier this year. Later on Oct. 15, Ashley and Luke sent Bravo fans into overdrive when they posed together at the networks' After Dark party. (See photos here.) During a panel for "The Real Housewives of Potomac" the following day, Ashley said that she and Luke bonded over having "a lot of common interests," though she demurred when asked if anything beyond that went down between them. She also opened up to Us Weekly about learning to date again, noting that she's "barely touched the surface" when it comes to getting back in the dating pool following her split from Michael: "I have gone on a date or two, but it's still really foreign to me, especially dating with texting and all of that because when I started dating Michael 11 or 12 years ago now, it was just such a different time," she said. As for the current state of her relationship with her ex-husband… "It's certainly not easy," she said, adding that she tries to focus on "the good times" they shared so that they can co-parent effectively.

On Oct. 18, Billie Eilish was snapped smooching The Neighbourhood frontman Jesse Rutherford, who's more than a decade her senior, outside an Indian restaurant in the Los Angeles area. (See photos here.) The lip-lock confirmed recent speculation that the musicians — who've been friends for years — are now an item. The 20-year-old Grammy winner and the 31-year-old rocker were also spied holding hands at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights in Los Angeles on Oct. 14, and according to TMZ, they could be seen kissing during an L.A. dinner date on Oct. 13.

On Oct. 14, Emily Ratajkowski was caught on camera making out with Orazio Rispo in New York City. (See photos here.) It's unclear how or when the model — who started sparking romance rumors with Brad Pitt in mid-August — first connected with the DJ and tech entrepreneur. On Oct. 18, E! News reported that, as far as the A-list actor is concerned, Emily is free to lock lips with whomever she pleases: "They were never exclusive or even really dating. … If an opportunity comes that makes sense to see each other, they will. But they are both completely single and seeing different people. … They are on the same page as far as that goes. They aren't expecting anything from the other," a source said, adding that the Oscar winner is "seeing a few different women right now." Said a People magazine source, "Em loves hanging out with Brad. And they will probably see each other again. It has never been serious, though. She is single and happy this way. She enjoys dating, but that's it. She is focused on [her son] and work. She doesn't want to jump into a new relationship. She was very upset when she filed for divorce [from Sebastian Bear-McClard]. She is in a much better place on her own now and wants to keep it this way."

Victoria Beckham sparked rumors that there's troubled in paradise with her husband of more than two decades, David Beckham, when it was revealed in late September that she'd removed a tattoo dedicated to the soccer star: his initials on her wrist. On the Oct. 13 episode of the "Today" show, the fashion designer addressed the drama: "I had these tattoos a long, long time ago, and they just weren't particularly delicate," she explained. "[They were] just a little bit thick and they were bleeding a little bit and just not looking as pretty. … They just didn't look so nice. It doesn't mean anything more than that. I think that the media started to speculate [that I was] leaving my husband. No. I was just a bit sick of the tattoo. It's as simple as that."

Did Travis Scott cheat on Kylie Jenner, with whom he shares two kids, with a rumored ex? After Rojean Kar posted a video that seemingly showed her on a video set with the rapper in mid-October, Travis took to social media to rip the Instagram model and claimed he doesn't even know her, implying they never dated, despite being romantically linked in 2013. "An uninvited person was sneaking photos on what was supposed to be a closed set while I was directing a video," Travis wrote. "I'm saying this for the last time. I don't know this person. I've never been with this person." He then pleaded with Rojean to "stop with the continuous cyber games and the fictional story telling." Rojean hit back on her Instagram Stories over the weekend of Oct. 22 and 23, saying she saw Travis on Valentine's Day this year, which he denied. "Saying you don't know me and you've never once been with me when you've definitely been with me, when f****** everybody's seen you with me, when I have pictures and videos of you with me, come on," she said, adding, "You cheat on that b**** every single f****** night. The whole f****** city sees it!" She later posted a long missive — captured by The Shade Room — in which she said "speaking on someone else's relationship was wrong of me."

On the Oct. 19 episode of Facebook Watch's "Red Table Talk," Jana Kramer alleged that her ex-husband, Mike Caussin, cheated on her with more than 13 women over the course of their relationship. "There were flags in the beginning — he cheated a month into dating," she said, adding that she initially forgave him because she'd also "cheated in past relationships." The "One Tree Hill" alum went on to share that she once caught the former professional football player cheating by checking their phone bill and calling the numbers she didn't recognize. Later, while recapping her ex's propensity for lying, Jana claimed that Mike often refused to fess up to the truth after she caught him in a lie. According to the mother of two, he even lied in "The Good Fight," their 2020 book about how they managed to stay together — for a while at least! — after weathering several cheating scandals.

Emma Watson called Tom Felton her soulmate in the foreword of his memoir, "Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Mayhem of Growing Up a Wizard," which debuted on Oct. 18. Wrote the English actress, "Like Tom, I always struggle to explain to people the nature of our connection and relationship. For more than 20 years now we've loved each other in a special way, and I've lost count of the times that people have said to me, 'You must have drunkenly made out, just once! You must have kissed! There must be something!' But what we have is far deeper than that. It's one of the purest loves I can think of. We're soulmates, and we've always had each other's backs. I know we always will." According to E! News, she went on to gush of their "true friendship," writing that the way Tom has "seen and loved" her over the years is "one of the greatest gifts of my life." Tom, meanwhile, wrote of the "Beauty and the Beast" actress, "I've always had a secret love for Emma, though not perhaps in the way that people might want to hear. That isn't to say there's never been a spark between us. There most definitely has, only at different times. … I don't think I was ever in love with Emma, but I loved and admired her as a person in a way that I could never explain to anybody else." The former co-stars have sparked romance rumors a number of times over the years.

"They're living out this real-life fairy tale and it just keeps on getting better and better. As cheesy as it sounds, Kaley says that from the moment they met there was a connection and synergy that was so special, almost magical. … She knew she wanted to be with this guy and he's said from the get-go that it's the real deal and he's head over heels in love with Kaley and happy to give it everything he's got," the source said, adding that the "Big Bang Theory" star and the "Ozark" actor "feel so blessed."

On Oct. 17, DailyMail.com published a series of bombshell allegations about the timeline of Olivia Wilde's 2020 split from Jason Sudeikis and her subsequent romance with Harry Styles. According to a woman who spent several years working as a nanny for Olivia and Jason's two kids, the actress-director dumped the "Saturday Night Live" alum in November 2020 — weeks after she started working with Harry on "Don't Worry Darling." (Olivia has long maintained that she and Jason split in early 2020 and that Harry had nothing to do with the implosion of their relationship.) According to the former nanny, Jason learned Olivia and Harry had taken their relationship to the next level when he stumbled upon damning messages on an Apple Watch she left behind when she moved out of the home they shared while working on "Don't Worry Darling" in Palm Springs. "He thought it was a temporary break," the nanny said of Jason, who was left devastated when Olivia officially pulled the plug. "He was just crying and crying and saying he was going to get her back and he loved her. He was so brokenhearted," the nanny said, adding that at one point, Jason laid in front of Olivia's car to block her from visiting Harry. The nanny also alleged that, according to Jason, Olivia made the first move on Harry and agreed to go to therapy with Jason but "never took those therapy sessions seriously" and had "no intention of repairing things with him" because she was already hooked on Harry at that point. "[When] she was filming and going out with Harry, she was still leaving [Jason] voicemails and texts saying she loved him and he was her everything," alleged the nanny, who claims Jason and Olivia fired her. After the allegations made headlines, the former couple — who claim the nanny resigned — released a joint statement accusing the nanny of making "false and scurrilous accusations" about them following an "18-month-long campaign of harassing" them.

Here we go again! On the Oct. 18 episode of her "Intimate Knowledge" podcast, Meghan King revealed that she has a new boyfriend: a man she's known for seven years whom she code-named Kenny. They reconnected after she traveled to Milwaukee for a second date with someone else: a man with whom she matched on Raya. After the Milwaukee date went sideways, the "Real Housewives of Orange County" alum met up with Kenny in Denver, where she has friends and family. "Kenny comes over, runs into my arms, and we're making out. It's so sweet — it's like long-lost lovers. It is the best. It couldn't have been better. It was such a connection. It was everything I imagined in my brain," she said, noting that they hooked up later that night. The following day, she told him she's "in this for the real deal," and he told her he thinks they're compatible and that he's also in it to win it. "We end up talking long-term. He's like, 'Move to Denver. … I'll take care of you. I know who you are.' … There's real history here with him. … I literally feel like I'm in a rom-com," recalled the mother of three, adding that she and Kenny are now "talking about being together" and making plans to go on an international vacation together in November. Good luck!

On Oct. 19, Megan Thee Stallion took to Twitter to shoot down rumors that her boyfriend of about two years, Pardison Fontaine, recently popped the question: "As nice as last night was, we are not engaged," she tweeted. The engagement rumors kicked off after the rapper was snapped wearing what appeared to be a massive diamond engagement ring following a fancy night out on the town with her beau.

According to People magazine, Braunwyn Windham-Burke filed to divorce her estranged husband, Sean Burke, in Orange County, California, on Oct. 17. The "Real Housewives of Orange County" alum — who came out as a lesbian in late 2020 — cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and requested joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their minor children, with visitation rights for her ex. She's also asking for spousal support and for Sean to pay her attorney's fees. According to Page Six, Braunwyn listed their date of separation as Oct. 13, 2022, though she and Sean technically separated back in mid-2021 — a few months after she said they planned to remain married as she began dating women. "Braunwyn knew she needed to do this at some point to fully explore her life as a gay woman. She's excited for the future," a source told Page Six, adding that it was "obvious a divorce was bound to happen" eventually and that the former couple "will continue to put their family first as they navigate the split." Meanwhile, Braunwyn's long-distance love, Jennifer Spinner, is reportedly eyeing a move to Orange County so that the mother of seven won't have to choose between spending time with her girlfriend and her children.
