Who Is Jeff Bezos’ New Girlfriend Lauren Sanchez?
She’s been labeled the new first lady of Amazon, but who is Jeff Bezos’ new girlfriend Lauren Sanchez?
Sanchez has been a part of the “Extra” family for years, from her days as a weekend host to her recent visit for the kickoff of our 25th-anniversary season.
Her other credits include hosting the first season of “So You Think You Can Dance” and co-hosting “Good Day L.A.” on FOX. The 49-year-old has also appeared as a guest host on “The View.”
Lauren has a few movie credits, too, including “Fight Club,” “The Day After Tomorrow” and “Ted 2.”
She’s not just a newswoman and actress — Sanchez is also a helicopter pilot. She recently launched Black Ops Aviation, a production company that shoots aerials for film and television via helicopter. Sanchez even took “Extra’s” Mark Wright for a flight around L.A. last March. Watch!
Sanchez and Bezos reportedly became close after he hired her to shoot aerials for one of his projects. She had been working on a documentary about his life.
Lauren and her estranged husband Patrick Whitesell, who is the co-CEO of WME, have been friends with the Bezoses for years, and were even photographed together in 2016.
Jeff and Lauren reportedly got close after Lauren and her husband separated.
