Who knew that Rick Harrison of “Pawn Stars” was such a big ol’ romantic softie?
The co-owner of the Gold and Silver pawn shop in Las Vegas and one of the stars of the History hit just got engaged to his girlfriend Deanna Burditt, he told People magazine. And, while the scene wasn’t quite out of “Sleepless in Seattle,” it was romantic in its own blue-collar way.
He told the magazine that when he did the deed at Auerole, one of Vegas’ top restaurants — and where they had their first date a year ago — “I didn’t really ask her, I told her ‘Girl, I’m marrying you,’ and then I gave her the ring.”
It should be an interesting match; both are going on their third marriages, Harrison has three boys and Burditt has three girls (one of Rick’s sons, Corey, is also one of his “Pawn Stars” co-stars). But here’s what we want to know: who would get custody of Chumlee if there’s a divorce?
