On To The Next! Women Who Found New Love In The Nick of Time…

As the saying goes, the best way to get over a new man (or woman) is to get under a new one.  Of course, you don’t literally have to get up under the person (unless that’s your style – no judgments here); you could just date someone new and kick it.  Most of us do it; even (and maybe, especially) the celebrities all go through a breakup and want to get past it by playing around with someone new…and quickly. In their cases, some have lasted and some have not!

Take a look at the list we came up with.  Have you ever had a rebound? Was it for the short term or has it worked out for you?

Zoe Saldana & Bradley cooper

Well, Zoe had been with her man Keith Britton for 11 years before they decided to break it off this past November. No sooner than we could blink, she was spotted canoodling with Bradley Cooper  as though they had a little something going on.  We even spotted her out with his mother going to the movies, shopping and all types of love things.  It was cute for them I guess…but as of the end of March, the love affair is apparently over!

Vivica Fox & 50 Cent

Auntie Viv loves herself a younger man, right? She’d been married to 6’9 (that was his stage name for his…singing career) for four years and after the papers were signed, she ended up in the arms of 50 Cent. It was an odd pairing and Viv was definitely feeling herself (the pic of the cutout dress? WERK, Auntie) whilst with 50. But things went a lil haywire: 50 probably wasn’t as nice as he should have been and Vivica talked too much so that was that!

Rihanna & Matt Kemp

I actually wanted this to work out and to be honest, I’m not sure that it won’t in due time. After the domestic situation with Chris Brown, Rihanna wanted to make sure she wasn’t seen as a “victim.”  She continued to work as hard as she always did, she partied and…she introduced us to Matt Kemp.  Many of us had never heard of him before but boy were we glad she did it for us!  They were really cute together but Rih didn’t seem ready to be exclusive so they ended it. We’ve spotted them out again here and there over the last few months but I’m not sure that means anything.

Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise

Tom and Katie? Yes, yes, yes. Even though Tom and Katie have been married for a few years now, she started dating him only weeks after her relationship ended with another actor, Chris Klein.  It was full speed ahead from there: they started dating in early 2005, engaged in June 2005 and married by November 2005.  So even though it has worked out for them, Tom was the rebound guy (and let’s not forget that Tom was Katie’s crush as a kid so she jumped right on the chance).

Madonna & Alex Rodriguez

It didn’t last long but this fling was hot in the presses. No sooner than the ink was dry on the divorce papers from Guy Ritchie, Madonna was spotted in New York City, Mexico and a few other places with A-Rod.  Madge doesn’t play when it comes to her boys: she knows who she wants and more often than not, she gets them.

Amber Rose & Reggie Bush

There had been some serious grumblings right after Amber and Kanye broke up that part of the reason for the breakup was Kanye’s “dealings” with Kim Kardashian.  Though nothing was confirmed, we saw Amber and Reggie spotted out in the clubs together (like “together,” not them just randomly at the same place at the same time together) and even around in the streets from time to time. It definitely could have been a publicity stunt that may or may not have been anything but Amber did confirm on Wendy’s show that Ye’ “dealt” with Kim while still in a relationship with her.
