Widow is Redhead of the Week

Half Irish, half Lebanese, Amy Marie Yasbeck is the widow of John Ritter and best known for her role as Casey Chapel Davenport on the sitcom Wings from 1994 to 1997. She has appeared on numerous television shows and co-starred in films like Pretty Woman, Problem Child, Problem Child 2, The Mask, Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Dracula: Dead and Loving It.

Amy says she met Ritter at director Dennis Dugan's house during a read-through of Problem Child in 1989. Ritter suggested she eat a bagel and cream cheese. He thought she was too thin.

Her late husband John died on their daughter Stella's fifth birthday, and a day before Amy's 41st birthday. She released her book, "With Love and Laughter, John Ritter" in September of 2010.

She was born on September 12, 1962.

According to Radar Online, a Hollywood gossip site, Amy has "finally found love again — and it’s with one of the lawyers who helped secure her family’s financial future.

"Michael Plonsker, 56, was part of the legal team who filed a $64 million wrongful death lawsuit against Ritter’s radiologist and cardiologist, and the Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Calif. where he was taken after collapsing on the set of 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Daughter on September 11, 200," Radar Online said.

Yasbeck, now 52, is currently starring in the online series Little Women Big Cars.

Thanks to Wikipedia, Amy and John.
