THE PARTY is over for Deputy Minister of Agriculture Gila Gamliel and her significant other, Jerusalem restaurateur and real estate investor Amir Turgeman. The couple's much-publicized romance began just over a year ago, when Gamliel was on the rebound after ending her long-term relationship with student activist Sagiv Asulin. Turgeman and Gamliel seemed made for each other, even though she was somewhat different from the previous women in his life - Turgeman's former flames were mainly fashion models and beauty queens. She was his first MK.

Under Turgeman's influence, Gamliel developed a more sophisticated veneer. She changed her style and her hair and began looking more like a woman of the world. Although her political career often intruded on their relationship because of the seriousness of her work,, Gamliel did manage to find time for weekend vacations with Turgeman. The couple shared a Jerusalem apartment for about nine months, and relatives and friends anticipated that the arrangement would soon become a permanent one. According to the rumor mill, Gamliel, 31, was also dreaming of tying the knot. . Turgeman, 32, was apparently not ready to commit, and the two have now gone their separate ways. But one never knows. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Perhaps a separation will, in the final analysis, bring Gamliel and Turgeman together again.
