Deanna Burditt is the ex-wife of Rick Harrison, the current Pawn Stars star. Between the early and late 2010s, the former couple was married. Burditt, Rick’s brown-eyed ex-wife, attracted considerable attention after being spotted by the reality star’s side.
For a while, Pawn Stars fans felt Rick had finally found his happily ever after, and it appeared that Deanna had as well. However, their divorce occurred nearly without anyone’s knowledge.
Deanna Burditt: Who Is She?
Several publications have stated that Deanna Burditt is a lawyer or at the very least a legal secretary. As previously stated, she rose to prominence following her romance with Rick Harrison. Deanna Burditt was born in 1976, according to reports.
While the exact date is not known, she is thought to be in her forties. Speculatively, she was born around 1976, as People says Burditt was 36 when she proposed to Rick in 2012. Deanna is most likely of Hispanic origin.
When did she get married to Rick Harrison?
Deanna and Rick met at the Aureole restaurant in 2011. They started dating the same year, and Rick proposed to her a year later, on February 14, 2012. The proposal took place in the same restaurant where they originally met. The North Carolina resident claimed he brought Deanna to the area where he first saw her and told her, “girl, I’m marrying you.” He stated that it was not even a question. “I didn’t actually ask her; I just told her, ‘Girl, I’m marrying you,’ and then I gave her the ring,” she says.
“I’m the happiest guy alive,” he told People after proposing to Burditt. He claimed to be living his dream. Contrary to popular perception, Burditt’s engagement ring did not come from the famous Gold & Silver Pawnshop. Rick obtained the jewelry from his storage room. Rick and his former partner, Deanna, married on July 21, 2013, in front of 180 guests at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Beach, California. Rick’s three children were all there at his wedding to Burditt. The bride walked down the aisle in a white Inbal Dror gown from Morgan Davies Bridal in London.
Rick’s co-star Chumlee served as ring bearer, and Counting Cars’ Danny Koker served as pastor. At the event, Steel Panther performed music.
Deanna Burditt was unconcerned about her wedding or honeymoon
In an interview, Rick confessed that he was in charge of his wedding to Deanna. “OK, you organize it,” he quoted his wife as saying. The Pawn Stars’ frontman stated that Deanna desired a small wedding. “Screw that—I want a big party to tell the world that I love you in front of all of our friends,” Rick responded.
However, when the Pawn star got his hands dirty, he admitted that he had no idea there was so much to it. Also, when it came to post-nuptial travel, Rick stated that his third wife was not included in the decision-making process. He stated that Deanna only desired a simple camping vacation, as opposed to the Pawnshop owner’s desire to take her to France or Fiji for their honeymoon. Burditt, on the other hand, persuaded him to trade five-star luxury for back-country relaxation.
In any case, Rick revealed that Deanna didn’t prepare anything for them and that he was in charge instead.
In an interview, the proprietor of The Golden Pawn Shop stated that he and his then-wife-to-be Deanna had decided they were done having children. He went on to say that they had agreed on everything.
Deanna, on the other hand, has three daughters from her prior marriages. During Rick and Burditt’s engagement, they were 16, 10, and 8 years old, respectively. Rick, her famous ex-husband, is the father of three sons from his previous two marriages, both prior to Burditt.
The Dating History Of Deanna
Deanna was married twice before Rick. She used to go by the name Deanna Tomaino in one of her past partnerships. While little is known about her first marriage, her second husband was a man named Martines. According to some sources, one of her ex-husbands had an odd sex life and involvement that got him in trouble with the authorities. He apparently even served time in prison.
Harrison had previously been married to Kim Harrison from 1982 to 1985. Tracy Harrison was his second wife, whom he married in 1986 but divorced in 2011.
During the Pandemic of 2020, Deanna divorced Rick. Their marriage ended roughly 7 years after they married. According to TMZ, Rick filed for divorce from his wife, Deanna, on July 1, 2020, in Clark County, Nevada. The split received little notice because it occurred in the midst of the pandemic and at a time when George Floyd protests were taking place around the country.
According to court filings, Rick stated that his and his ex-tastes, wife’s mental dispositions, viewpoints, likes, and dislikes had become so dissimilar that they were incompatible in marriage. He further stated that reconciliation as husband and wife was out of the question. Deanna initially requested alimony in response to the divorce petition, but according to the records, the exes negotiated a settlement agreement in September 2020. They resolved all concerns such as alimony, child support, and property distribution.
Despite the fact that they didn’t have any children from their marriage, Rick claimed to have gotten three great daughters out of it, referring to Deanna’s children from a prior relationship. The reality personality from Lexington concluded that the marriage “didn’t work out and [the divorce] was a mutual decision.”
Are the former couple still on good terms?
Deanna, Rick Harrison’s ex-wife, ceased contact with the media following their divorce. While still Burditt’s husband, the businessman from Las Vegas once declared that she would not be coming on the show and had no ambition to be famous.
As a result, her withdrawal from the foreground appears plausible. Furthermore, the brunette is virtually unnoticeable on social media. On the other hand, things are running as usual for Burditt’s ex, Rick Harrison. With his show Pawn Stars, which is presently in its eighth season on the History Channel, the celebrity continues to hunt/deal with old relics. However, it’s been a while since Pawn Stars viewers have seen his personal life. He brought his youngest son, Jake, into the family business by presenting him in his reality series in March 2021.
