Joe Scarborough Divorce: MSNBC Host Splits With Wife Susan

Source: Huffington Post



Joe Scarborough and his wife, Susan, obtained a divorce in January, records show.

TMZ first reported the existence of the documents on Thursday.

Scarborough had been married to his wife since 2001. She was his second wife. They have two children together.

A source told The Huffington Post that the settlement describes Scarborough as a "faithful, devoted and committed father and husband."

61. No, I don't think so

She was a paid congressional aide, not some poor intern. The way her death was investigated was very weird. But then, that part of Florida is weird and I hated it. 3 1/2 years of hell. The Democratic party in Santa Rosa county, next door to Okaloosa county where Fort Walton Beach is, was an answering machine, that's how red it is. Santa Rosa county was also dry at that time, still is so far as I know. I just hate Florida I guess. Too humid, too right wing, too many critters that can kill you, or at least make you sick. I would be all too happy to never go there again for the rest of my life.

3. Lori Klausitus

Most folks seem to have forgotten about the dead intern, Lori Klausitus.

Young woman, working in Scarborough's Florida district office when Morning Joe was a rising rightwing star in Congress, found dead in the office. Death was covered up by incompetent medical examiner. Joe left Congress to "spend more time with my family."

Laura was not drinking..it was an accident.. Ted was drinking and did not report the accident until hours later.

I have no respect for people who bring First Ladies into politics whether it is Laura or Michelle.

29. OK, I give you that and agree to a certain extent. But there is no evidence that Laura

wasn't under the influence. In fact, there was some concern that she was under the influence (not alcohol) of some kind. And the talk stemmed from efforts to stuff the police report, especially since she was underaged.

But again, point made. Still, the dead intern mystery is astonishing in terms of the unequal treatment. Scumbag was never publicly ridiculed for it.

31. I agree that there is more evidence that Kennedy was in the wrong, but in reality

First Ladies are adults and they do reflect on their spouses. Here, I think that the Laura Bush accident would not have impact because it occurred when she was young and because I think Democrats are LESS likely to attack spouses.

Imagine that it was Tipper Gore or Teresa Heinz who had this accident, would Karl Rove have ignored it? Consider how they went after Teresa for what was a very innocent comment. She was asked how what she could bring to the WH was different than Laura Bush. Her answer spoke of her decade of running a foundation that was a big part of her identity. Unfortunately, even though she spent several sentences praising Laura Bush, the media took the comment that Laura had not worked since she was grownup as a smear to teachers and librarians - as well as to Laura Bush. In fact, Laura Bush quit working at 27 when she married Bush. It is very easy to see what Teresa meant. (Not to mention using Bush language isn't 27 well within young and irresponsible?)

In fact, ignoring the extremes of each party, I think it is pretty clear that ONE party, for the most part, does not attack First Ladies and First Lady nominees - and the other does. Look at the politeness extended to Laura Bush, Cindy McCain, and Ann Romney - versus the way that Hillary Clinton, Teresa Heinz, and Michelle Obama have been treated.

44. They gave him hell because he deserved it.

After the accident he swam ashore. He checked into a hotel to establish an alibi (he even went down to the front desk to complain about a loud party). He finally reported the accident in the morning. The diver who pulled the poor girl out of the water lived only a few minutes away. She apparently had been alive for a while before finally running out of air. If Teddy had reported the accident right away, that diver may have been able to save her life. Mary Jo died a terrible death.

What Teddy did was inexcusable and it cost him any chance of ever becoming president.

I have zero experience with divorces, but I find it a little humorous to say all those wonderful things about someone you've decided is so horrible you can't live with them anymore. I'm wondering if he had it included to cover his ass.

...but when I do I always wonder why she stays with that show (excluding the obvious reason, $$$$). I've also noticed that when she is in charge the show is much more calm, sane, and informative. She deserves her own gig instead of playing Alice Kramden to Joe and den mother to the rest of the kids on the panel.

And as far as the divorce, it's always been clear to me that Joe loves Joe and nobody else. Who could live with that for any length of time???

48. Two down...how many more to go?

He ain't very pretty, he ain't very smart, and he doesn't have much of a personality.

He does make a nice payday, though....

Why in the world would he divorce? Is there a new spouse on the horizon? Did Number Two tire of him?

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/2013/10/kris-jenner-doing-fine/70442/

Joe Scarborough, everyone's kind of annoying preppy cousin, makes $99,000 every week as main host of MSNBC's Morning Joe. That figure was revealed by TMZ which claims to have seen divorce papers, which were filed last year though we only just learned of the divorce recently. Of that roughly $400,000 per month, Scarborough pays $30,000 in alimony. As the couple's two children live with him, he doesn't pay child support. So that all sounds pretty reasonable, but then you read more about the terms of the divorce and it begins to seem like a more contentious affair. Scarborough's ex, Susan Waren, had to affirm in the papers that Scarborough was "faithful, devoted, and committed," and a clause was included that when the two are both in the Connecticut home where the kids live, neither is allowed in the other's bedroom unless there's some sort of emergency with the kids, and, more chillingly, after 7 o'clock at night, neither is allowed on the other's side of the house. Side of the house! Update: After we published this item, the attorneys for both sides of the case have pushed back against interpreting the clauses of the divorce agreement, drafted to take into account all sorts of contingencies, as a literal characterization of what goes on at the Scarborough home. That makes sense to us and we regret any suggestion otherwise. Attorneys Christine Whitehead and Barbara Aaron add, "As counsel for Joe and Susan Scarborough in their Collaborative divorce, and having each practiced matrimonial law for more than twenty-five years, we can say, unequivocally, that Joe and Susan handled their divorce as honorably and amicably as anyone could have hoped. They are a model for other divorcing parents in their singular commitment to the well-being of their children. While such situations are never simple, Susan and Joe have behaved in a fashion that should be the aspiration of others going through similar challenges. Joe is and will continue to be generous and supportive of Susan and their children. To suggest otherwise is sadly uninformed, misleading, and scurrilous. Contracts are drafted to cover extreme but remote situations, and, out of context, are easily misconstrued. Anyone suggesting that Joe and Susan have been anything other than cooperative and caring with and towards one another are ignorant of the reality." {TMZ }

62. That's what I think. They're ALWAYS together-traveling to other parts of the country,

going on "book signings" together, going with each other when only one of them is a guest on a show (I remember when Mika was on Colbert's show, Colbert mentioned that Joe was backstage-same when she went on Letterman. They're ALWAYS together.) And Mika met her husband at work. Their body language speaks volumes, too.

65. I saw that Colbert segment and wondered about it, too...I also wondered if Colbert was being sly

when he revealed that Joe was backstage. He probably thinks people assume that he is "mentoring" her, but in my long experience seeing such "mentoring" it rarely precludes a sexual relationship. I'll bet Susan wasn't too happy about THAT caper.

IIRC, didn't Hillary say that she initially believed that Bill was "counseling" Monica Lewinsky about her career choice or something?

66. YES! I think Colbert WAS being sly...

and I LOVED it. He knew exactly what he was doing. And I'm SURE Susan didn't like it. And when they're together, they act like a married couple. Mika's always touching Joe-hitting him, taking pieces of lint off his clothing, etc.

I don't remember the thing about what Hillary thought about Monica, but I don't doubt it.

67. My guess is that just about everybody who goes on that show knows the truth but won't talk about it

our of fear that they won't be invited to go back on.

This news will probably confirm viewers' suspicions...despite the bs in the divorce papers about Joe being "faithful..." God, he must think we're stupid.

68. Yup-they MUST know...

and it's like they FLOUT it in their pre and post-breaks with the pics of them which look like they're in love, which I'm sure they are.

69. I wonder about that...maybe Mika is inlove with him but he doesn't strike me as being the loving

type...besides, as the saying goes, "if he does it with you, he'll do it to you."

70. True...

I think Mika's in love with HIM and HE loves the attention from HER. I agree with that saying, and I bet it applies in this case.

74. Any bets on whether Joe will mention his divorce on Morning Joe at some point?

My guess is that he will not, unless he is forced to by "unfavorable" publicity...hmm...

75. I am 99.99999% sure he will NOT mention his divorce on MJ EVER.

Didn't he get divorced in January? He'll just keep playin' it cool, letting Mika fawn all over him.

77. This morning he said something interesting...he was talking about enforcing bedtimes for kids.

He started talking about "we," meaning him and his wife I presume. He said "we" enough times to make me suspicious about his motives. I think he is trying to soften his image after the news of his divorce became public. He never used to say "we" as often...it was always "I".

is revealed? I'm guessing 3 to 6 months...

83. I doubt she'll separate from her husband.

That would be WAY too obvious. If her husband DID find out there was something going on, I bet she'd make some "arrangement" with him to keep it under wraps.

84. It's interesting. Her husband, Jim, was a local reporter for our ABC affiliate station here in

CT (WTNH). Mika was a reporter for the station covering Hartford. She has surpassed him in her career (I think he is covering NJ politics as an investigative reporter now). I think they live in Bronxville NY (saw a reference to the daughters' high school somewhere). So I'm guessing she makes a lot more money than he does and, of course, she has the glamor thing going and she's published a few books. Definitely an imbalance between the two careerwise...

85. Yeah...

I know the story with her husband. And the fact that she met him at work adds to my conclusion that she's now unofficially with JOE, whom she ALSO met at work. And yes, she definitely has outgrown Jim, and she's even getting bigger than Joe, but they're more on the same level.

Republicans are lousy in the sack. Good Dems should not lower themselves to fuck Republicans, at least not literally.
