Amanza Smith has admitted that her “whirlwind romance” with Danny O’Donoghue was a “rebound”.

The Selling Sunset star revealed that she began dating The Script’s frontman “right after” her divorce from Ralph Brown.

The 43-year-old hooked up with the musician back in 2012, when The Script were over in LA filming a music video.

Speaking on Tuesday’s Six O’Clock show, the real estate agent said: “I had a little whirlwind romance with one of your people right after my divorce.”

She admitted to Martin King and Muireann O’Connell: “I was going through it – it was a rebound.

“We had a lot of fun together actually. It was short-lived, because you know we live across the pond from one another.

“It was the first person I actually dated right after my divorce so this was like a long time ago, this was like eight years ago. He’s an awesome guy and we had a lot of fun,” Amanza added.

“We had an amazing time, I thought I was in love. It ended about as quick as it started,” she admitted, “But we would still be friends. Once in a blue moon he’ll pop his head in and say ‘what’s up?’ and ask how we’re doing and how the kiddos are.”

“I would say he’s a good 10 out of 10 – You’re welcome Danny!”

Amanza previously spoke with Evoke about how her relationship with Danny came to be. 

“I met him in a bar in LA and then it was just like magic! I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s my soulmate,’ because, of course, after a divorce anyone who’s like, ‘Oh you’re awesome,’ or like, ‘You smell good,’ you’re thinking they’re your soulmate.

“But he was super cool too… I went to London [with him], I stayed there for like a week but I didn’t go to Ireland.”

“I met Danny at an Irish pub. That was the kicker,” she explained. “I was in an Irish pub and he was with his group. I didn’t know who they were because I had been living under a rock.

I heard these Irish accents and I was like, ‘Wait a minute, are you guys from Ireland?’ He was like, ‘Yeah we’re shooting a music video.’ I said, ‘Oh wow, congratulations.’ I had no idea they were as big as they were.”

“I thought they were this little Irish band and they came out to big ol’ Hollywood and they were shooting a video.”

“I was thinking, oh cool good luck with that, talking to them like they were driving a road van here, taking everything they had to make their first record. Little did I know!” she confessed.

“It was fun. He may hear this and he might call me. We’ve talked a few times since the whole ending of our whatever, but it was totally cool it wasn’t bad thing or dramatic.”

“It’s just a fun story,” she added. “My whirlwind romance, it ended as fast as it lasted.”
