Later on in the program, Scarborough blushed when Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee gushed: “Congratulations, by the way.
Congratulations on all the news that are coming out.”Scarborough pretended that Sen.
“There’s little or no concern that this changes anything about their relationship,” said the exec.
The first couple of cable news, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, are engaged to be married, sources have exclusively confirmed to Page Six.
Ailes made his pitch to Johnson on Brzezinski’s behalf, and the columnist obligingly stood down.

No I am not saying Jared and Ivanka are Bobby Kennedy.”Now that they are officially intimate, their will-they, won’t-they allure could wither, and that crackling onscreen tension might dissipate.
It’s an open question how viewers will react to the freshly formalized Mika & Joe.
We’re told Scarborough, 54, got down on one knee and proposed at the scenic Bar Bellini at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, which has a breathtaking moonlit outdoor terrace overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.But the couple has remained coy about their romance.He told The Hollywood Reporter last month, “We have a crackling on-air chemistry, and a crackling off-air chemistry, too.” That chemistry has made for great viewing and ratings.On Thursday’s installment of Morning Joe, the couple—dressed, perhaps serendipitously, in complimentary ensembles of blue and pink—acted coy about their big news, deflecting felicitations from show regulars Harold Ford Jr.and Steven Rattner by pretending that they were being feted for Morning Joe’s robust ratings.“The numbers have been up lately—the show’s going well,” regular co-host Willie Geist quipped, playing along with the fiction.“More people have watched us in the last two months than ever before, so thank you,” Scarborough responded with a smirk.“It’s like we’re family,” Geist retorted.“You can almost drop the ‘like’,” Ford chimed in with a laugh.“I’m reading over here that there’s other things to say congratulations about,” Rattner added, while Joe & Mika pretended not to hear.
