​Kaley Cuoco Reveals She Dumped Her Famous Boyfriend After First Dinner Date

Kaley Cuoco - who you'll know as Penny from The Big Bang Theory - may now be happily engaged to equestrian Karl Cook, but her past relationships haven't proven to be quite as peachy.

In an interview with Vogue, Cuoco dished the dirt on a former flame. A former flame who also happens to be an anonymous famous actor.


She said: "We start dating and we go on all these really adorable dates. We took my dog on walks and we would come back to my cute new little condo and we'd watch movies.


"At 19 I'm sitting there, I'm looking at this guy going, 'I'm going to marry him, this is the father of my children, I'm so in love'.

"He was magical - everyone that met him loved him too and we looked cute together. Nothing could go wrong.

"He wanted to take me on a really nice, romantic dinner date - kind of a surprise. I was so excited because we hadn't really done this yet."

This is where it started to get juicy, as Cuoco continued: "He takes the bill out and he's looking at it - like really seriously. Looking and looking up and his face is getting kind of squinty.

"At first I thought maybe he couldn't see or he needed glasses - I didn't know him too well. And he kind of closes it back up.

"He hasn't put a card down - he hasn't done anything yet - he's just staring at the bill. What is wrong with this guy why is he taking so long?

"But this guy is perfect, I'm gonna marry him so I need to be cool. So he proceeds to go into his pocket and take out his phone.


It was then that Cuoco realised what was going on, as her unidentified fella opened up the calculator app.

"He's multiplying like an eight percent tip.

"Oh my god. He's cheap... He's cheap. He's a bad tipper."


She continued: "It started to get to the point where when he would pay - which was hilarious he wanted to pay for everything - I'd make up these lies...

"I would run back inside, throwing cash to the server or whoever we owed money to.

"I didn't know how we would progress. This entire relationship was built on lies because I'm just lying to him...


"People thought he was so generous, but I was going broke. I wasn't on Big Bang at this point."

Cuoco added: "I did go back in and tip the server, I never went back into that restaurant again, and we split up a week later."

Well, there you go chaps. If you ever want to stand a chance of impressing Kaley Cuoco at some point in your life, by all means, tip well.
