Leo and Blake hug it up while in Italy, France

Whether they’re a new couple or just a fling, it definitely appears sparks are flying between Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio. The “Gossip Girl” starlet and the “Titanic” actor were spotted hugging in Portofino, Italy.

Although Leo just ended his five-year relationship with leggy blond supermodel Bar Refaeli, he appears to be quite affectionate with Blake; they were also seen embracing last week, on a yacht in the South of France.

Both in Europe for the Cannes Film Festival, the pair originally met last year when Blake auditioned for a role in the upcoming “Great Gatsby” remake. She didn’t get the part, but she might have landed a real-life leading man.
“Blake is exactly Leo’s type,” a source told the European magazine Grazia. “He likes leggy blondes with big smiles, and Blake fits the bill perfectly.”

Well, there is that.

SIBLING RIVALRY

The new season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” kicked off with a bang — and a brawl. Though Teresa Giudice’s old nemesis Danielle Staub is no longer on the show, the table-flipping socialite has a new rival in Melissa Gorga — who just happens to be her sister-in-law.

Just how contentious are things between the two feisty brunettes? Their husbands, Joe Giudice and Joe Gorga (yes, Teresa’s brother), got into an ugly fight at Melissa and Joe’s son’s christening.

“I was so upset,” Melissa told Life&Style magazine of the full-on family fight. “Teresa’s never given us any respect. She was being fake, just acting nice for the cameras.” (That would be before the fight broke out, we presume.)
Though Teresa and her brother used to be close, the siblings are now estranged — and loved ones are caught in the middle.

“Teresa would tell our parents ‘Melissa this,’ ‘Melissa that’ or ‘Joey didn’t do this,’ and my parents have never been the same,” Joe Gorga said. “Her husband talks about me to them all the time too.”

“I think when Joe and I started making a lot of money is when she really lost it,” Melissa said. “She was used to being the biggest and the best, and then when I came in, she felt threatened. She doesn’t want anyone to one-up her. Teresa’s fine with you as long as you’re one step below.”

A sad situation for the family — but it sure does make for some good drama!

JT’S LADIES

Justin Timberlake is not doing a very good job of dispelling rumors about his love life — but he’s doing a great job of keeping us guessing. At the “SNL” after-party following his hosting gig on (duh) Saturday night, the pop star turned actor hung out with not one but two starlets he’s been romantically linked to in the press.

The “Social Network” star was seen socializing with Mila Kunis, his co-star in the upcoming “Friends With Benefits” — a title that may have real-life resonance, if you believe tabloid reports that sparks flew on the set.

J.T. also was seen “chatting away” with “House” star Olivia Wilde, who appears with him in the forthcoming “In Time” and also has been rumored to be his romantic interest.

A source told Page Six, “Olivia, Mila and Justin all left at the same time.”

“Justin is in movies with both actresses; they are friends,” another source said.

Would that be with or without “benefits”?
