Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough ENGAGED
Romance rumors had been surrounding the now confirmed couple since they began hosting their show. Their fiery chemistry is to be blamed for this! Even Joe admitted this to The Hollywood Reporter in April, saying, "We have a crackling on-air chemistry, and a crackling off-air chemistry, too."
Scarborough popped the question this past weekend at a bar at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, where they were celebrating Mika's birthday.
Affair with Scarborough reason for Brzezinski's divorce??
Page Six exclusively reported in June 2016 that Mika and Joe might be dating. An NBC insider allegedly told the site, "Everybody at 30 Rock knows they are a couple ...They are constantly together...They are each other’s publicists and finish each other’s sentences. It’s the worst-kept secret in TV.”
They also reported that Mika's divorce with her WABC Eyewitness News reporter husband, whom she married in 1993, had been finalized in late 2015. The former couple shares two daughters.
Mika and Joe were very much aware of the rumors surrounding them and even joked about it on-air. During a Morning Joe episode, Joe joked "By the way – there are a lot of lead stories today," referring to the Page Six news, to which Mika replied, "I will finish your sentence and start with politics."
Even President Donald Trump seems to think that Mika and Joe are a couple. On August 22, 2016, he tweeted,"Some day, when things calm down, I'll tell the real story of @JoeNBC and his very insecure long-time girlfriend, @morningmika." Joe clapped back shortly with "@HillaryClinton is targeting key swing states today while Trump starts his day obsessed with cable news hosts while channeling Gawker. SAD!"
