Love and Marriage

Joe and Mika

It has come to Aardvark’s attention that ‘Morning Joe’ hosts Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski are engaged. This is said said to be a very recent development. According to Mika,

Scarborough’s marriage proposal came during a trip to the Antibes in honor of her 50th birthday. During a walk by the Mediterranean, he feigned being winded and asked to take a break.  That’s when he busted out the oval-shaped diamond ring set in platinum.

“When I saw him on one knee, I started laughing nervously, almost hysterically,” Brzezinski said. “And then he asked, and I said, ‘Absolutely.’ ”

For his part, Scarborough said he thought long and hard about attempting marriage for a third time.

“It’s the one part of my life that unfortunately, I haven’t gotten right in the past,” Scarborough told Vanity Fair. “I thought after the last time that I would never, ever do this again in a million years,” he said. “Then it occurred to me that with us working together and being live on the air every day for three hours that we were forced, no matter what disagreements we had, what misunderstandings we had, to work through it and get right with each other by 5:59 A.M.”

It has been suggested in certain quarters that Aardvark owes his readership a duty to comment on the forthcoming nuptials. I can only say that I have suspected for some while now that reports of a romance were accurate.

My evidence? That wifely look she gives him that’s affectionate but exasperated and somewhat disgusted at the same time.

Aardvark knows that look.
