Renee was helping brothers Jerome and Jerald, who helped her publicist Nanci Ryder in the midst of her ALS battle, according to People.
‘We are car people,’ Ant tells Renee, referring to himself and cohost Cristy Lee. ‘And there’s no greater gift than to give somebody else who’s also a car person.’
Despite being in the presence of car experts, there were a few bumps in the road for Renee.

As evident in their many loved-up outings in recent weeks, a friend of the actress said that Renee is ‘head over heels’ and has ‘never been happier,’ in a relationship.

‘Renee is head-over-heels in love. She thinks this is the real deal. She’s never been happier. They’re a great couple,’ the insider shared.
In a 2019 Vulture interview — shortly after she had split from boyfriend Doyle Bramhall — she had spoken about pressure as a woman to be in a relationship.
‘If you’re not cherished by someone, if a man doesn’t find you and treasure you, then your worth somehow comes into question. It’s just the reality of being a lady,’ she said at the time.

When she and Anstead met a source told PEOPLE that they clicked. ‘Sometimes two people just meet and click, and the timing is right,’ the source said.
‘Renée is creative…and often goes for guys who think out of the box…Both of them are private and dislike public scrutiny, so they have that in common. He’s a creative guy with lots of interests.’
And it seems she may have found her person with Anstead, as an insider told Us Weekly that Ant is also ‘super happy,’ in the relationship.
‘You can tell he’s in a good spot in his life — he’s super happy. He seems like he’s on fire. He’s where he wants to be and is making things happen,’ the source said of both his personal and professional life.
The pair were linked shortly after his divorce from Flip Or Flop host Christina Haack was finalized in June after she announced the split last September.
Celebrity IOU: Joyride will premiere on Discovery+ on August 23.
