Call him Victoria’s secret! Former “Dallas” star Victoria Principal has lassoed a new love…handsome cameraman Rick Osborn.
But the happy duo have kept their romance on the down-low – until now. On Dec. 20, twice-married Victoria, 62, and the dashing, silver-haired lensman, 52, were spotted Christmas shopping arm-in-arm near her Malibu, Calif., home.
The two have known eachother since 2007, and things have really heated up over the past year, an insider told The ENQUIRER.
“Now Rick is so in love with Victoria, he’s named his 65-foot yacht ‘Lady V’ after her.”
The pair met not long after Victoria’s contentious divorce from her husband of 21 years, plastic surgeon Dr. Harry Glassman, was finalized in late December 2006.
“Victoria says that 2006 was the worst year of her life,” divulged the insider. “She and Rick first began to date casually, and he helped her to pick up the pieces.
“He couldn’t have come along at a better time for her, and their relationship has slowly blossomed into romance.”
One attraction is that the in-demand cameraman shares Victoria’s love of adventure.
“They both want to go on a commercial space flight, and they frequently take trips on his yacht,” said the insider.
“Rick also shares her interest in ecology and protecting the oceans.”
Victoria’s marriage to Glassman had hit rock bottom in December 2002, when she called 911 and claimed the physician had roughed her up. But no charges were filed.
Prior to her marriage, Victoria had an ill-fated romance with young pop star Andy Gibb, dumping him because of his cocaine use. Sadly, Gibb died in 1988 at the age of 30 from inflammation of the heart.
“Before Rick came along, Victoria didn’t know whether she could trust another man with her heart,” said the insider. “They haven’t talked marriage yet. She says if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But things could change.”
