You can’t keep Dirty Harry down. The 84-year-old Jersey Boys director has found love again. Us Weekly reports Clint Eastwood’s new lady friend is Christina Sandera, a hostess at his Carmel, California hotel, the Mission Ranch. They were photographed shopping at an L.A. Whole Foods; they apparently live together. Judging by the pic on the Us website, the blonde Sandera looks to be in her late 40s.

SHOW HER THE $

Marc Anthony has been ordered to cough up $26,000 a month to his ex-wife after a judge decided to double the amount of child support due to the salsa great’s two sons. That amount sounds like a lot, but Dayanara Torres, a former beauty queen, had been seeking $123,426 for Cristian, 13, and Ryan, 9.

HAIRY MATTERS

Really? Really. A New York woman named Jasmine Tolliver has a little too much time on her hands. She created a Change.org petition requesting that Beyonce and Jay Z take better care of little Blue Ivy’s hair. In the appeal, Tolliver writes, “It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls.”

ON THE MEND

Tracy Morgan is showing signs of improvement following a New Jersey highway crash that badly injured him and killed one of his friends. Spokesman Lewis Kay said Morgan remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition but his medical team is “optimistic that his recovery is progressing.”

STABBING CASE

A Michigan woman who authorities say stabbed the father of Mary J. Blige has been found mentally competent to stand trial. Cheryl White, 50, is charged with assault with intent to murder. Police say White stabbed Thomas Blige in the neck, arm and side on Jan. 23 outside his Battle Creek home after he found her deflating his tires.

FAME SEEKER

Chubby Checker wants the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to know it’s time to induct him before it’s too late. “I don’t want to get in there when I’m 85 years old. I'll tell them to drop dead, so you better do it quick while I’m still smiling,” Checker, 72, told The AP. Checker’s recording of The Twist and subsequent Let’s Twist Again are considered among the most popular songs in rock history.

LET’S STAY TOGETHER

Matt Lauer, a fixture on NBC’s Today for two decades and a co-host since 1997, will stay put for a few more years as the show tries to recover the dominance lost to rival Good Morning America. Lauer, 56, said in a statement that “I consider this the best job in broadcasting.”

BYE, FAKE HARRY

Bad news for aspiring royals: Fox has pulled the reality show I Wanna Marry Harry after just four episodes. In the series, a gaggle of gullible ladies compete for the affections of a young man who kinda-sorta resembles Prince Harry but who, in real life, is Matthew Hicks, who makes a living cleaning up oil spills.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.

    Bachelorette Andi Dorfman: I was attracted to Josh Murray from the beginning

    Bachelorette (no more) Andi Dorfman stopped by Good Morning America on Tuesday to show off her ABC swag (aka engagement ring) from former pro baseball player Josh Murray. The 27-year-old lawyer and her 29-year-old grinning fiance held hands and looked pretty happy. “I definitely knew there was that chemistry and attraction with him,” Dorfman said of their first meeting. “I'm definitely an overthinker, though, so it took me till the very end.” Plus she had to break up with 24 guys first. No wedding date has been set yet; the couple need to do more publicity first.
