Patriots owner Robert Kraft was in attendance at Celtics-Heat Game 6 on Thursday night. The game itself was very ugly. Just disgusting.
As revolting as the game was, Kraft’s guest was the exact opposite.
Kraft, 71, was spotted with 32-year-old actress Ricki Noel Lander (PHOTOS), who was sporting a vintage Patriots hat and a Celtics t-shirt four sizes too big.
“She’s my pal,” Kraft told the Herald’s Inside Track. “Doesn’t she look great in that hat?”
Since the gals at the Track have no life, they dug in a little bit, and discovered that Kraft, newly single after his beloved wife Myra’s death last year, has been seeing Lander for a few weeks.
“She was his date to the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards last weekend and she’s been to his house on the Cape a couple of times,” the Track reported.
Lander is a bit actress in Hollywood. She has appeared in CSI, True Blood, Prison Break…and even played “Flight Attendant” in Iron Man. I personally (yes, ME) have more followers on Twitter than she does (assuming this is her real account).
But, I bet that’s about to change. What’s a good way to make your star rise? Date a 71-year-old billionaire owner of a sports team.
