Jennifer Love Hewitt has been very public about her obsession with Bachelorette runner-up Ben Flajnik via Twitter.
On August 2nd, Jennifer tweeted:
“Omg! Ben f except my final rose !!! I love that ring. Neil lane u rock!! Happy for Ashley…. Gotta book a flight to Sonoma !!!:):)”
She later tweeted:
“Aaaaaaahhhhhhh Ben f is following me!!!!! You lovelys are the best!!!!:):) sending a million roses to u guys too”
Apparently her tweets paid off and she reportedly flew to San Francisco on August 6th for a date with the 28-year-old Flajnik at a local SF hot spot, Lion's Pub. "Ben from The Bachelorette is making out with Jennifer Love Hewitt," one witness/fan told Life & Style.
Another fan gushed: "Oh yeah, Ben and Jennifer Love Hewitt appeared to be dating. All in all, Ben seemed to be perfectly content as the second-place loser on The Bachelorette."
A rep for the actress refuses to comment, but Steve Carbone of realitysteve.com told Life & Style, "These two had no contact with each other until after Jennifer reached out through Twitter on Aug. 2. Ben's obviously doing fine since the Ashley breakup, as he's now been on a date with Jennifer Love Hewitt!"
