Loni Love has always been pretty straight forward about her personal views on dating and relationships. In the past, she has proudly boasted about being a “satisfied single.”
“I’m what you call a satisfied single,” Loni told The Jasmine Brand this past summer. “I don’t want to give any trip reports when I come home. I like having peace and quiet in my life and I am perfectly happy in my relationships.”
“I will never say never but I can tell you right now – I am perfectly happy with being who I am. I just – I really – I’m an entertainer and the thing that I’d decided to work on was my career and I decided the energy that I was putting in certain relationships – I was really kind of wasting my time and I knew it. So I said, I would take that energy and put it into my career. And now look – I’m on a talk show, I have a book that I wrote – I mean, it takes concentration for those things but it happened. So, It’s not that, I’ll never say never, but right now, I enjoy my life, I truly do enjoy being single and I don’t really want to get married.”
With Loni’s love for the liberties of the single life, we thought we’d never hear her utter the words “boyfriend;” however it looks like our girl has a new boo. During today’s episode of “The Ellen Show,” Ellen did a little prying and learned that Loni brought her new 23-year-old boyfriend, Sam, to the show. Then, during the “Loni’s Love Update” segment, Ellen brought him out. Apparently the two met at a comedy club.
“We met at a comedy club. She was eating nachos,” Sam told Ellen.
“I was eating my nachos, drinking my brown liquor, minding my business. And then I saw him and what did I say to you?” Loni asked Sam.
“Hey baby, want a drink?” Sam said imitating her hilarious pick up line.
Though she may have shocked us all by committing to a boyfriend, it doesn’t look like she plans to tie the knot again. Her facial expression when Ellen mentioned an engagement was absolutely priceless.
