JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT’s NEWEST MAN
If at first you don’t succeed... bouncy JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT bounds back with sexy new show about hookers and a hunky new BF!
After failing to find love with “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik –among others -- Jennifer has now won the heart of her co-star on “The Client List.”
The 33-year-old beauty has been secretly dating hunky actor Brian Hallisay because she’s gun-shy about making the romance public, reveal sources.
“Jennifer is being very careful and doesn’t want to go high-profile with another boyfriend until she’s certain it’s going to last,” a source close to Jennifer told The ENQUIRER.
“She feels as if she’s been jinxed in the romance department but really thinks Brian may be ‘the one,’ so she’s taking every precaution necessary to keep him out of the spotlight. She goes only to out-of-the-way places with him and says Brian’s a keeper. For now she’s keeping him all to herself.”
Jennifer, who’s never been married, had one date with “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik in 2011, dining at his family’s California winery.
Ben says the actress initiated the get-together and he turned her down for subsequent dates because he wasn’t keen on building a future with a Hollywood celebrity.
Meanwhile, the unlucky-in-love actress has been linked to a bunch of TinselTown heartthrobs including former “Blossom” child star Joey Lawrence, talk-show host Carson Daly, singer John Mayer, her “Ghost Whisperer” co-star Jamie Kennedy and, most recently, actor/director Alex Beh. She was also engaged to “White Collar” actor Ross McCall before breaking it off in 2008.
But now it appears the perky star of Lifetime’s “The Client List” has finally hit the romantic bull’s-eye with Brian. Jennifer stars as Riley Parks, a single mother of two who works as a prostitute at a massage parlor. Brian co-stars as her ex-husband Kyle. The two first met on the failed 2011 NBC series “Love Bites” – and the second time around, sparks are flying.
“They’ve gone out to dinner and lunch, but always at low-key places,” said the source. “Jennifer is hoping she can make the romance known soon – and the next step will be getting Brian to the altar.”
