    Hi ladies! Like I said on the other thread – shout out to Leo for his donation to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
    Also, big thanks to all the volunteers and rescuers on the ground risking their lives to help the people of Houston and the other towns damaged from the storm.

    I would upvote this more than once if I could.
    I’m far away but the pictures that I saw on TV are awful.
    Praying for everyone affected.

    Applauding all the celebrities who are reaching deep into their pockets. There is a business man called “Mattress Mack” who has done a wonderful thing and has opened his large furniture store to shelter those affected by Harvey. Kudos to him. Big hugs to the volunteers, first responders, rescuers, police, army personnel who are risking their lives to save people and animals.

  • Guess

    Hi, I think he goes at the beginning of the event. We have not seen him or anything in couple of days, maybe there or on his way there.

  • Josie

    Still in LA and just doing Leo things. LOL
    Maybe he goes to burning man for last couple Days. I would be surprised if he missed that.

  • Tigerlilly

    Always good to see him doing wonderful things like this <3 Still carrying his heart on the right side. Kudos to Leo :))

  • VanityInsecurity

    Thank you Leo! You are amazing!

  • Guess

    Maybe. He really needs to take a break and do nothing for a minute. I would like to see him chill at home for sometime and go right to work.

  • Josie

    I would like to see that too, especially him going back to work. I can’t believe that’s it’s been such a long time since the Revenant and we Stil have nothing concrete. πŸ˜•
    In the TMZ Video it looks like he is just doing things we have seen a thousand times before. That and his whole lifestyle the last time makes me think, that burning man must be on his list.

  • Guess

    Well, he has surprised us in the past. I would have thought had a GF the entire summer for these places. Our boy had no GF the entire summer. I think this is big and maybe needed a break from the bleached wannabe models . The summer will be
    non-officially over with Labor Day. So, it looks like no GF for Summer ’2017, wow!!

  • Bombshell

    I dont think its so easy, even for him, to get a movie project produced nowadays. Especially that he doesnt pick any franchises and super heroes stuff and medium-budget movies, no superproductions, are slowly dying. The scandal with WoW production money probably didnt help either.

  • Bombshell

    Im not surprised at all. Already since Kelly you can see a gradual decline in his interest in official “relationships”. The one with Nina was just simply gross and not good for both of them. They both clearly looked like people undergoing some torture.

  • Guess

    I think we all were trying to figure out why that even started and lasted almost a year. Sometimes you’re on automatic pilot and we all get that way when used to a routine and comfortable. Nina got him at the right time and probably just wanted fun and not working. She also made herself VERY available and no fuss (at least up until the end, maybe). Maybe this last one really making him think like I said these meaningless relationships back to back can be tiresome and waste of time.

  • Guess

    I would say production of big movies could be factor or type of movies he likes. I don’t think the scandal has anything to do with him personally. Leo had nothing to do with that.

  • Josie

    Nikki is on her way to burning man. It’s possible that Leo and some of the wolves are on their Way as well.

  • Josie
  • Guess

    I saw that, lol. She really wants to be the female Leo, IMO.

  • Guess

    Thanks. I hope not.

  • Miss Plum

    dare I say, maybe he’s waiting for the SM??

    TMZ just reported Leo left club Tao with three chicks(blond).

  • Guess

    Hi, you need to go to Leowdfan and see the video. It was a group and Tobey was with him. He was not alone.

  • sky

    After Leo donated a MILLION to Texas hurricane he went to the club Tao and left with three chicks. Leo is so generous, I can’t believe p diddy only donated 25,000 what a dickhead.

  • sky

    Yes I’m saw it.

    I doubt that he missed that. We know that he likes burning man. Nikki, Lukas and Reza are already there. Maybe we find out who else.
