Drew Carey reveals he and late ex-fiancée Amie Harwick texted about reconciling days before murder


Comedian Drew Carey has revealed that he and his late ex-fiancée Amie Harwick texted about reconciling just days before she was murdered.

Amie, 38, died on on February 15, 2020 – after she was allegedly thrown her from the third floor balcony of her California home. 

The renowned Hollywood sex therapist got engaged to Drew in 2018, but the two split 18 months before she was killed.

Now, the Price Is Right host, 63, has revealed that he and Amie got back in touch just two days before she was tragically killed – when she messaged him to say she wanted to ‘get together and talk’ since she had been thinking about ‘forgiveness’ a lot. 

Drew said they never got the chance to meet up – but he gets ‘solace’ from their final interaction, knowing he was able to tell her he loved her one last time. 

‘Valentine’s Day was a Friday. I got a text from her on Thursday,’ Drew said during a recent interview with 48 Hours

‘[She] said, “Hey, I know we haven’t talked in a while, but I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about, you know, forgiveness, and I would love to get together with you and talk.”

‘And I said, “Yeah, I would love to do that. I love you.” I was really happy, like, “Oh, it’d be great to see her again.” But I never got a chance to do it. 

‘I’m glad that she knew I loved her. I’m glad I could get that message to her before she died. She loved me and held me in a dear place in her heart.’

Amie’s ex-boyfriend Gareth Pursehouse, 41, was charged with murder, residential burglary, and lying in wait – a charge which makes him eligible for the death penalty. He has pleaded not guilty to the crimes.

An autopsy report released by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner indicated that Amie was found with wounds on her hands and fingers ‘consistent with a combination of defense and assault type wounds, suggestive of an altercation.’ 

She was also found with injuries to the head and torso and had been strangled, and the cause of death was ruled as blunt force trauma. 

When Drew got the news, he told the outlet that he ‘started crying’ and ‘couldn’t even stand up.’

Drew and Amie had met at a party where she was working at a bartender in 2017. 

They then ran in to each other again at another party one week later, where she told him, ‘It’s my birthday, and my boyfriend stood me up.’

Drew recalled: ‘I said, “Boy, you should get a better class of boyfriend.” And she said, “Yeah, maybe I should.”

‘That was my first flirty line with her. And then, by the end of the night, I got her number. Our first date we went to Disneyland.

Right away, the actor, who was 58 at the time, said he was smitten with Amie, who was 35 at the time, and would brag about her to all his friends. 

‘I said, “Wow, I met this great girl. Her name’s Amie. She’s a Ph.D. and she’s a therapist,”‘ he told the outlet.

‘And I said, “If this keeps going the way it’s going, I’m going to marry her.” I just said it right out, and I’d only known her for, like, a couple weeks. I just knew that she was special.’

Unfortunately, being in a public relationship wasn’t easy for them, and according to Drew, Amie didn’t like the constant media attention.

‘If we were in the paper or something, that would be a fight sometimes,’ Drew explained, adding that Amie would often say, ‘I wish you weren’t famous. You know? This is all because I’m dating you.’

Despite trying to fix their relationship through therapy, the two ultimately called it quits in late 2018.

While speaking to 48 Hours, the TV personality called their breakup ‘really painful,’ admitting that it ‘felt like a death’ to him. 

Gareth had dated Amie 10 years prior, but allegedly continued to stalk her in the years since, and it’s been reported that Amie previously told friends she feared he would hurt her.

Court documents reviewed by DailyMail.com last year detailed how he once pushed her out of a car on the freeway, and in another incident forced her onto the ground and viciously kicked her in the face. 

She had filed two restraining orders against him but the final one had expired in 2015. 

According to his LinkedIn profile, Gareth worked as a photographer, as well as a software engineer and developer. His most recent job was as lead architect at Internet Brands.

Amie was a well known sex and family therapist, as well as a former Playboy model. She received her degree in psychology from California Polytechnic University in Pomona, California.

She also earned her masters of arts in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. 

Before her death, she had appeared on various TV and radio shows, and she even wrote her own book called The New Sex Bible for Women. 

‘I feel like a widower, you know, in a lot of ways, because I wanted to marry her, and then we had this horrible breakup. And then before I could talk to her again, somebody killed her,’ concluded Drew.
