In fact, it was polo that chucked them together. After meeting at a party last summer, soon after Stallone filed for divorce from Nielsen, Guest took a tour of the tack room at his polo field. She was surprised to find a picture of her father on his wall. He was surprised that the guy was her father. Shortly after he returned from a five-month Rambo III shoot abroad, the world was surprised that Sly and Cornelia were not only an item, but reputedly engaged.
They made their first formal appearance last week, at a Touchdown Club gala in Washington, D.C., where Sly accepted an award from the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. Their entrance had all the earmarks of a serious Stallone romance—carefully orchestrated to prevent photos of the couple together. Bodyguards flanked and followed Sly, separating him from Cornelia and his mother, Jackie, who walked several paces behind.
