So all those stories saying Russell was having a “steamy makeout session” with a “mystery brunette”? Once again, it’s Nicola! Looking at the set of pics on Zimbio, it appears to me that Nicola is reading a card or something, maybe given to her by Russell, and they’re laughing and being affectionate, but I highly doubt they were “making out.” The pics that some sites are running that show them kissing were most likely taken in a split second as Nicola was giving him a kiss to either thank him or say goodbye or something. Plus they’re with another friend, so it hardly looks like a date.
Personally I’ve always thought Nicola and Russ would be a super cute couple, but they seem more like brother and sister, and I think this is yet another case of the paparazzi taking nosy pics and the tabloids running the pics with misleading headlines.
This is the one time I wish those morons were right, but I agree with your analysis.
