Stewart revealed this in an interview with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live,” but didn’t share any additional detail.
When asked about her recent romance, she said;
“No. I shouldn’t say no. I mean yes, but I’m not going to tell you.”
Stewart who evaded questions about her new romantic partner, however opened up about her previous short-lived romantic connection to the late Larry King. She revealed that she thought they were just friends when they went out to dinner at Elio’s in New York City.
The TV personality said;
“I thought we were just talking about journalism etc. etc., and then he sort of got a little amorous.”
She didn’t share any other details about her evening out with King, who passed away in January, but gushed over how he was one of the “nicest” people to ever interview her.
“By the way, he was probably — other than you — the nicest, kindest interviewer on TV. And accurate and caring and interested. So, that’s Larry King.”
Stewart was previously married to entrepreneur Andrew Stewart for 26 years from 1961 until they split in 1987 and later divorced in 1990. She kept his last name instead of returning back to her maiden name, Kostrya.
During their marriage they had one child together, television host and radio personality Alexis Stewart, 56. Alexis married trial lawyer John R. Cuti in 1997, but divorced in 2004. The exes have two young children together, Jude and Truman, making Stewart a grandmother.
