Patrick Swayze's Widow Lisa Niemi Is Engaged!

Patrick Swayze’s widow Lisa Niemi has found love once again. Congratulations to her on the announcement that she is engaged to jeweler Albert DePrisco. People magazine has the scoop:

“Albert proposed to Lisa on Christmas Eve,” the rep says.

The couple met through mutual friends at a birthday party for Niemi and have been dating for a year and a half.

A year after Swayze died, Niemi, 57, told PEOPLE she was open to the possibility of being married again.

“I would love companionship love. Absolutely. I hope I’m not one of these women who never want to have another relationship,” she said. “But who knows, that’s another bridge I’ll cross when I come to it. I may get there and go, I don’t know. But I like to think that I can.”

We are happy that she was able to get past the bad things that have happened in her life to move on and get close to a new man. Kudos to her. What say you, Swayze fans?

Patrick Swayze's Widow Reacts To Kirstie Alley's Love Accusations

Kirstie Alley has been on the promotional tour for her new memoir in which she claims that she and her “North And South” co-star Patrick Swayze were in love. She also claimed that it took everything inside of her not to run away with John Travolta, as well. As a matter of fact, this book is littered with “should’ve, would’ve, could’ve” love stories. Narcissism, perhaps?

Apparently after claiming that she had an emotional affair of sorts with Patrick, his wife Lisa Niemi had something to say about it. Reportedly, she feels betrayed that her once close friend that she just wanted to let go and scream at Kirstie, “I hate you! Patrick never loved you! How could you do this to me?”

Lisa and Patrick were married for 34 years and he passed away in 2009 from pancreatic cancer. Since, she has just begun dating Albert DePrisco, but she is not happy about Kirstie’s claims regarding her former husband.

A source said, “Lisa has so many happy memories of her marriage to Patrick. Now, Kirstie has sullied those memories by trying to cash in on her friendship with him.”

In her memoir, Kirstie said that she and Patrick tried to “avoid going to that road”, but claimed that they couldn’t help falling in love with one another. She writes, “He exuded that anything was possible. The emotions and dialogue escalated daily. One night, toward the end of the shoot, I got fairly drunk, dirty-danced for hours and then succumbed. We made out with each other.”

They didn’t go all of the way according to Kirstie, but she did say that he “asked me one last time to divorce my husband and make a new life with him. He was very persuasive. The decision of whether to run off with him was torturous.”

Uh huh. Are you buying any of this?

Madam Tussaud’s recreated the wax statue of Patrick from a shot of him in Dirty Dancing. She posed with the statue, which was dressed like Patrick’s character from the movie, Johnny Castle.

Lisa told the crowd, “It became clear to me that someone had put a lot of love into this, for a man I loved so very much.”

How sweet. They really did love each other a lot, you could always tell when they were together that their ties were deep. Lisa also said that the sculptor captured the “Swayze look” in its eyes.

She reveal, “They have Patrick’s confident, but mischievous look.”
