Diane Von Furstenberg On Her "Violent Passion" With Barry Diller

I hope no one gets hurt!

But in the new Harper's Bazaar, designer Diane von Furstenberg assures us that she and Barry Diller are the most sizzling couple since, I don't know, Calvin and Kelly.

"It was real passion and completely unexpected on his side and my side," swears Diane about their first pairing.

"It was very, very violent passion ..."

So violent, perhaps, that they parted ways -- though love eventually brought them back together as if in a fairy tale.

"Love is about the attraction," she explains, "and then there's the passion, and then there's the complexity, and then there's the partnership. It evolves."

"Did he woo you?" asks the interviewer, seriously.

Nope, she says. "I wanted to be his friend. I thought he would be a good friend to have. But we were completely taken over by passion, and it was completely, utterly unexpected on both sides.

"He loves me so unbelievably unconditionally. When I left, I went with this guy and then another guy, and at the end Barry won me."

You bitches can roll your eyeballs all you want, but Diane says in the same interview, "I never, ever lie. I hate lies. I don't lie. I never will lie."

So hush!

No, all right, bring it on. What say you? Jealous?

I've always thought that he must be the highest-profile guy ever to go roaring back into the closet. And I've always figured he married because (unlike, say, Geffen) he badly wanted to circulate freely among the super-rarefied echelons of global billionaire high society, who wouldn't accept him in without a trophy pretend-wife on his arm. Its been a good deal for her too.

I wish those two would adopt me. I'm currently an orphan.

You should read the piece in Architechtural Digest. Barry says he has certainly been to her meat packing district aerie but it's not him. It says safe either stays in the MPD place or she "bunks" at his Carlyle suite.

does she discuss his passion for younger guys?  One of whom I know personally that he flew out from Dallas in the 90's for a weekend of debauchery!

Could her "violent passion" be hitting him furiously whenever she catches him with a boy?

And the magazine never brings up any doubts or any background info like "Didn't your first husband die of AIDS? Isn't Barry a notorious dick hound?" I guess they advertise.
