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.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for MindBodyGreen.com and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
