Leave it to the super spies at TMZ to uncover the latest random celebrity couple. Nicole Scherzinger, front-kitty of the Pussycat Dolls, has been spotted with Talan Torriero, the baby-faced, often-overshadowed star of seasons one and two of Laguna Beach.
The pair were seen dining at The Grove in Los Angeles yesterday. Clearly the date wasn’t too enthralling, as they are both on their respective phones during lunch. Nicole also hid under a hood and behind giant shades. Weak! hat happened to the rampant exhibitionism we’re used to seeing from the Pussycat Dolls!? We’re probably just spoiled by Britney Spears.
Some of you gossip hounds may recall that Talan was engaged to Kimberly Stewart for like a day. He also got it on with Kristin Cavallari while on Laguna Beach and has been linked to other stars, including the Ms. Crotch of Fire herself, Lindsay Lohan, since leaving the MTV reality hit and becoming a full-fledged D-List celebrity.
Forget Jason Wahler, this is Laguna Beach‘s true player. Odds are that he will have broken up with Nicole and be spotted snuggling up to Katie Blair by January 1.
