Chris Harrison has a new girlfriend: report


New chapter

Almost a decade after John Ritter died from an undiagnosed congenital heart defect, his widow Amy Yasbeck, 50, has found love again with her lawyer, reports The National Enquirer. Michael Plonsker, 56, was part of the team who filed a $64 million wrongful death lawsuit against Ritter’s doctors and the hospital where he was taken after collapsing Sept. 11, 2003. Ritter’s family received more than $14 million in the case.

By the looks of it, Chris Harrison has found someone new, but she isn’t one of the many contestants he’s interviewed and interacted with from The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Life & Style has pictures of the TV host with a woman identified as Kelly Sarac, a mother of three. On her Facebook page Sarac posted a cozy photo of the two dated Dec, 8, 2012. Harrison separated from wife Gwen in May of last year.

No trespassing

A Taylor Swift fan was arrested near the singer’s new Rhode Island seaside mansion Tuesday after allegedly swimming there, TMZ reports. Law enforcement sources tell the site a man from the Chicago area was taken into custody for trespassing.

Staff changes

Ode to Jenni

Among the memorabilia at L.A.’s Grammy Museum’s new exhibit “Jenni Rivera: La Gran Senora,” is a Spanish-language Bible. It was a gift from her parents, who inscribed it with the words: “Make sure you carry this Bible with you everywhere you go.” Rivera normally took it with her always, Athena Jaharis, the museum’s assistant registrar told the AP, but not on the day she was killed in a plane crash.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
