Looks like Yellowstone may have sparked a new relationship…
We all know Ryan Bingham as the longtime Grammy and Oscar-winning country star, who has played the role of ranch cowboy Walker on the show.
And then there’s Hassie Harrison, who plays the rodeo cowgirl Laramie who hangs out with all of the ranch hands on the show. Harrison is also known for her major role in the shows Tacoma FD.
And not to get into spoilers (you should’ve seen it by now) but in Yellowstone, Walker and Laramie hit it off, and ultimately end up dating… much to the dismay of Lloyd (Forrie J Smith). They even end up in a knife fight over her…
Well, it appears like that TV relationship has translated to real life, as it appears Bingham and Harrison are dating.
Bingham posted a picture on his Instagram of the two repping camo jackets and jeans while kissing in front of a massive bonfire.
Bingham wrote in the caption:
“More than a spark”
Harrison also responded to the post, saying:
“I love you, cowboy.”
Yeah… when the “I love yous” are dropping, that’s when you know it’s real.
So sorry to break the hearts of all the folks out there swooning over Ryan and Hassie, but it looks like they’re taken…
While we wait for the second half of Season 5, check out Yellowstone’s “Evolution of Walker” video:

Yellowstone Exec Says He Is “Very Confident” That Kevin Costner Will Continue With The Show
Finally, a silver lining.
There has been a lot of doom and gloom regarding the future of Yellowstone here lately.
It all started when rumors began going around about Kevin Costner possibly exiting the show, after allegedly asking to film the rest of Season 5 in only one week due to his busy schedule.
However, Costner’s attorney Marty Singer denied these allegations:
“The idea that Kevin was only willing to work one week on the second half of Season 5 of ‘Yellowstone’ is an absolute lie.
It’s ridiculous — and anyone suggesting it shouldn’t be believed for one second. As everyone who knows anything about Kevin is well aware, he is incredibly passionate about the show and has always gone way above and beyond to ensure its success.”
We recently learned that the rumored Yellowstone spinoff series starring Matthew McConaughey is actually full go, regardless of what happens with Kevin, but all signs were pointing to the end of Yellowstone as we know it.
However, the tide is finally beginning to turn.
According to Insider, Paramount Network exec Keith Cox made an appearance at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California for PaleyFest this past weekend where he gave some positive news about Costner’s return.
“What I can say is our star, the face of our show, and executive producer, are very confident he is going to continue with our show.”
He also went on to say that production for the second half of Season 5 will begin “soon” and that an announcement is on the way.
This is great news for the show, especially since things were looking even more bleak after Taylor Sheridan, Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser, Gil Birmingham, and Wes Bentley didn’t even show up for PaleyFest where this announcement was made.
Only Cox, Wendy Moniz, Mo Brings Plenty, Dawn Olivieri, and Josh Lucas were in attendance.
I guess all we can do is keep our fingers crossed for positive announcements here on out.

The Yellowstone Crew Breaks Down Walker & Lloyd’s Bunkhouse Fight
What’s the rule about fighting Lloyd?
On an episode of Stories From The Bunkhouse, Jefferson White (Jimmy), Ian Bohen (Ryan), and Denim Richards (Colby) discuss Jimmy’s letter to Mia and his trip to Texas with Taylor Sheridan, mullets, Teeter cooking, John Dutton’s relationship with his daughter Beth, the fight between Walker and Lloyd, and Beth’s job offer from Market Equities.
And while Beth’s story means more for the arc of the show, Rip, Walker and Lloyd in the bunkhouse was the big moment, and one that was surprising for the cast.
“I read that in the script and I couldn’t believe. Since Season 1, the one rule… no fighting. And when it was like Lloyd for… the tension between those two guys has been brimming so it finally kind of explodes in that moment.”
However, when it came to only beating up Lloyd and not Walker as well, the crew explains that Lloyd is the veteran, he has to set the example.
As Colby explains:
“Rip showing up and only beating up Lloyd… Lloyd when Rip is gone is supposed to be the anchor of the bunkhouse and Walker has already been the wildcard, he’s already shown that he doesn’t really listen, he’s not even really supposed to be there.
If we all see that Lloyd can do that without any repercussions, what’s gonna keep anybody else from doing whatever they want? Llody had to made an example of.”
“Rip has most loyalty to Lloyd but that also means that Lloyd also has the most responsibility and the consequences of betraying that loyalty is that much higher.”
