Broadway actress Kristin Chenoweth is dating a guy who has been decidedly unlucky in love, former 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka.

She recently confirmed the relationship, "We have been spending a little time together."

The 44-year-old actress and her decade younger reality celeb boyfriend met when they presented together at the 2012 Hero Dog Awards in early October.

Pavelka hit twitter to gush about it:

The decidedly buff Texan did a celebrity guest stint with the Chippendales show in Las Vegas during Feb-March 2012.

Chenoweth is still recovering from injuries she suffered in July 2011 when a piece of overhead equipment hit her on the head while she was filming a scene for 'The Good Wife.'

Many suspect that she has continued to scale back appearances while negotiating personal injury compensation from CBS and the legal drama.  If she is unable to reach a settlement it seems likely she will have her lawyers draft a lawsuit and take the matter to court.
