Whispers of trouble between Teri, and her boyfriend of 8 months, Stephen Kay, first began when Teri arrived in Paris to celebrate the gala nuptials accompanied only by her 9-year-old daughter, Emerson.
“Baron and Teri really hit it off,” says a friend of the TV beauty. They talked and danced all night and had a great time. They couldn’t seem to get enough of each other!”
Sill, adds the source, when it came time to say goodbye after the Parisian wedding party ended, “neither Teri nor Baron knew what would happen when they returned to the States!”
As for Teri’s relationship with Stephen, another friend of the star says, “I think she hasn’t had her heart in it for a while. She definitely seemed open to meeting someone new who made her heart beat faster.”
Apparently she feels that someone is Baron – and he seems to feel the same way! On July 24, the duo was spotted together again, at the Hollywood eatery, Pace, where they sat on the same side of a four-person table, “looking like a couple of love-struck teenagers!” says an eyewitness.
So while Baron’s rep says that the athlete and the TV house-mom are “just friends,” Teri has never seemed happier!
