Kaley Cuoco makes her red carpet debut with beau Karl Cook

Longines Masters Los Angeles - Gala

Big Bang Theory star and relationship addict Kaley Cuoco finally showed off her boyfriend, equestrian Karl Cook, outside of social media! The couple, who have reportedly been an item since March, showed up hand in hand at the Longines Masters Gala in Los Angeles on Thursday night. Kaley was in a Mary Katrantzou maxi dress and Karl was in a three piece light blue suit and a jaunty hat.

The 30-year-old actress gave props to her hair and makeup team in a post on Instagram, stating she was “Shocked that my girls actually did an OK job tonight.” Not credited, her stylist, who shouldn’t with that dress. There’s just way too much going on there. And don’t get me started on Karl’s ensemble. I don’t know if the hat’s too big or what, but he looks kind of odd. It’s probably that hat.

Regardless of some perhaps misguided fashion choices, the couple did look happy. Kaley, who recently admitted on CBS This Morning that “I fall in love really hard,” seems to have found the fellow animal lover of her dreams. She told the panel on The Talk, “I finally found my horse guy. I know. It was meant to be. He’s an amazing, amazing rider. Rider and jumper. Amazing equestrian and great human. We share obviously our passion for horses and dogs and all that. And it’s been lovely. So great.”

Kaley and Karl showed off their equestrian skills and competed in the Longines Masters event on Friday in Long Beach, California. They competed separately, and Kaley rode under the pseudonym Kay Christine. She posted a photo on her horse to Instagram, captioning the shot, “#SiBella and I conquering the 1.50 ‘joker’ fence at the @longinesmasters!” She looks a little scared, don’t you think?

Hey, if she’s happy, good for her. I admire her for her equestrian skills, and I’m sure she’s probably a pretty good actress. It’s always good when you can find someone who shares your passion as well. My ex-husband was passionate about hunting, I was a part-time vegetarian. That was destined to fail. Good luck to you Kaley, but for Pete’s sake, just don’t rush into anything.

    Her make up artist or someone has reshaped her brows, she does look good.
    That hat though…

  2. QQ says:

    Equestrian KarlVon Dipstick here looks like a Bad costume reinterpretation of A Clockwork Orange… also Methinks that when they divorce/break Up Equestrian Karl will give her More work and leaked stories than the Tennis Pro guy that I was Ranked above?

    • Snappyfish says:

      Karl Cook is the son of billionaire Scott Cook. In the horse world, which is v v small, he is considered a v v nice guy. If a divorce comes (can only imagine the pre-nup that would be demanded by Daddy) I would think all the stories would come from her camp. With that said, she is also known as a v v nice, sweet & generous person (in the horse world) and yes, the horse world is different.

      The hat is odd, but there is a difference between fashion, style & taste

      • detritus says:

        that hat is bad. in style and in taste.

        also, as an aside, I enjoy these horse world tidbits.

  3. Trace_smiles says:

    I like her, she’s harmless. She’s also a lot more attractive when she smiles fully, showing her teeth. She teeters on a smug smirk at other times.

    • Lalu says:

      I was thinking the same. She is really pretty when she smiles and shows some teeth. I like her with the longer hair. I think she looks great here.

  4. LittleTeaPot says:

    Karl reminds me (facially) of Charlie Hunan. That ain’t a bad thing & I ain’t mad.

  5. Astrid says:

    Odd looking couple

  6. Alix says:

    Another Mad Hatter, just like Lisa Marie’s ex. Ugh.

  7. John says:

    Number 2

    The look on her face as she approaches the fence equals counting her horses strides and a stern “must look past the fence must look past the fence” to herself. You look at the fence as your horse approaches it and your dead.

    • hmm says:


      ahh, the memories.

    And maybe stop talking to the press everytime you get a boyfriend how it’s ‘meant to be’ and you’ll live happily together forever.

    My first impression was that there’s a giant cat face on her chest…does anyone else see that?

  11. KiddVicious says:

    I sort of like the dress. It does have a lot going on, but from what I can see of it she’s wearing it well. And I do see a cat face on the front.

    His hat is too big/tall. He has a big head, he needs a more streamlined hat. He looks like a lollipop. I like his suit, but it doesn’t seem to fit well.

  12. Joey says:

    Kaley is so hot !!! She looks awesome ,so pretty !!! He would not b my first choice for her … but what can u do ! I hope he relizes how lucky he is ! I wish she was my girl !

  13. Susan says:

    That comment from her about her hairstylists is props? Sounds rude and insulting to me. She says she is shocked that they did something good for her.

  14. Ladiabla says:

    Umm no he does NOT resemble Charlie Hunnam…that dude looks like a fully grown-up child of the corn🌽🔪😱

  15. Roisin says:

    1.50m…color me impressed! I make that face at 1.10m.

    I think this might be a great match. I wish them well!

  16. Michelle says:

    I like Kelly. She gets so much flack for…just being her. But she seems to be a fun, sweet, genuine person who, like most of us (even those who pretend not to), just wants to love and be loved by that special someone.

    My issue is with the beard. If that’s the way your beard grows, you shouldn’t be bearding.
