Congratulations, ladies: There’s still a chance to date the Old Spice guy.
“I am single,” Isaiah Mustafa tells PEOPLE. “I like hanging out with people.”
As a result of being so outgoing, Mustafa, 37, said Monday at Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Male of 2011 party in New York (where he was honored along with Russell Brand and Penn Badgley), “Anytime I have been hanging out with people in any capacity, it’s always taken as something more.”
There are also the rumors – and even more than just rumors. Comedian Kathy Griffin, for instance, spilled to Howard Stern on Monday that she and Mustafa are an item.
