Congratulations to “Pawn Stars” star Rick Harrison, who has revealed his engagement to girlfriend DeAnna Burditt. The couple, who met at Vintner Grill in Summerlin a year ago, were together at the grand opening of the Peter Lik gallery in Mandalay Place tonight.
It will be Rick’s third marriage -- “the third time is the charm,” he told me. Rick secretly gave DeAnna a 2 1/2-carat cushion-cut diamond ring two weeks ago but went public with the news for the first time tonight.
The ring isn’t from Gold and Silver Pawn downtown, but Rick admitted: “I’m practical, so I did get it wholesale from my jeweler friends in our business.”
“Pawn Stars,” the History Channel’s top global show, just started filming Season 6, and the cable network is already in talks with the Harrison family -- Rick, Richard “The Old Man” Harrison, Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison -- and Austin “Chumlee” Russell to extend the show another 80 episodes.
With 280 episodes, “Pawn Stars” would become the longest-running series in cable TV history. Congratulations from everybody at Vegas DeLuxe on Rick’s engagement to DeAnna, who works in a law office. The reality TV hero told me that they’re planning on getting married next year.
