Actress Kaley Cuoco is living the good life. Almost a year after her headline-making divorce from her ex, Ryan Sweeting, Kaley has moved on with Karl Cook!
“Extra's” Renee Bargh caught up with Kaley on the set of a Visa commercial shoot, where she gushed over Karl and her rescue pup Ruby.
Kaley is getting back to work after spending the summer show jumping. “Spent the whole summer with the horses; that's been completely life-changing.”
Cook, a fellow horse lover, has been by her side, and Kaley has posted many sweet pics of the pair on social media. “He's very sweet. I couldn't be happier. Life is completely amazing — everything is amazing,” she said. Cuoco called training with Cook, who is an accomplished equestrian, “a dream.”
The actress also opened up about the new season of her hit show “The Big Bang Theory," which premieres Sept. 19 on CBS. Her character Penny is finally getting a family; in fact, her former TV mom from “8 Simple Rules,” Katey Sagal, will be playing her mom again!
“I am so excited! I've been wanting to meet my mother for 10 seasons now, so I'm the last one to have a mom… I kept asking, 'Who's it gonna be…?' I felt like John Ritter was, like, dancing around going… I could feel him in the air.” She added, “We go back a long way, and I haven't seen her in a long time. I've literally known her [from] when I started that show when I was 14.”
Penny's brother is also revealed in Season 10, “Yes, Jack McBrayer! I'm so excited — he's hilarious and adorable… I actually got his phone number, sent him some texts, giving him a hard time, starting the sibling rivalry.”
The 30-year-old dished on her TV guilty pleasure, loving “The Bachelor” franchise… even hosting viewing parties at her house. “It's so good, it's painful… I mean something is wrong with us that we want to watch these other people's lives.” Kaley is happy that JoJo found love with Jordan, and is happy the new Bachelor is rumored to be Luke Pell. “I liked him — he was really cute.”
Kaley also talked about pairing up with Visa and Uber to shoot a commercial for their new Local Offers rewards-points program, telling Renee she's “very excited” to be a part of it.
