Dancing With the StarsAndy Dick may not have landed the Mirror Ball, but he’s found love with close friend Jennifer Gimenez.

The model and actress — who is best known for being The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville’s bestie — tells Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that they are dating and it’s “a lot of fun.”

“The beauty with being with each other right now is we know we'll be always be the the best of friends,” she dished. “It's fun. It's not super serious. It's just a lot of fun."

Though they were spotted arm-and-arm together recently, Jennifer didn’t confirm their status until now. The duo have been friends for a long time, and took things to the next level after discovering their romantic connection.

"We're so close, feelings and emotions got mixed,” she explained. “The one great thing with Andy is we are best friends. We've done nothing but support and motivate each other through the years.”

In fact, she was even on-hand tonight when Andy got voted off of DWTS, and is proud and supportive of her man.

"After he danced last night, he said, 'You know what? I've overcome a lot.' He was really proud of himself and I was really proud of him,” she gushed. “He's gone further than any other comedian has gone. No one thought he'd go as far as he did. He's proud of himself and I'm proud of him."

Aww, we’re so happy for Andy. Not only does he have a new lady love, but also has an ABC pilot in the works and a ton of new fans after his time on DWTS. We know he’ll go far — even though he won’t have a Mirror Ball on his mantel.

And, hey — Jennifer better not break his heart. Andy’s protective pro partner Sharna Burgess will definitely have his back if things go south!

Are you surprised that he and Jennifer are dating? Sound off below.
