Gawker just put up a very upsetting item: Hathaello is in danger! Apparently at the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation gala last night there was tight security, but Raffaello Follieri and Anne Hathaway felt the need to have their own burly bodyguard. None of the other (brighter) luminaries had personal protection, not even A-listers like Meryl Streep, Diane Sawyer, Robin Williams, or Barbara Walters. As Gawker points out, Anne Hathaway doesn't usually travel with a bodyguard (we know, because once we accosted her at a party about her New Jersey Eastern choir days and there was no one there to stop us), so it was probably all for Follieri's benefit. "The weird thing," explains their source, "was no one was approaching the guy anyway." Does this mean that there is a hidden threat to their controversial love? Is one of the men (or churches) that Follieri allegedly ripped off going to come after him? Or, as we secretly suspect, is the young Italian exerting a Scientology-like hold over the lovely Anne, refusing to allow her to read bad press about him? That would explain why he'd hire a bodyguard: to keep prying reporters away. That would also explain something we've been wondering about for a long time: why the hell she hasn't dumped him already.
