Rachel Maddow and Her Girlfriend Give Up TV on Weekends
People Magazine ^ | 4-6-10

Posted on 04/06/2010 11:35:27 AM PDT by Justaham

Rachel Maddow doesn't bring her work home with her.

The MSNBC host, 37, and her artist girlfriend Susan Mikula spend each weekend at their quaint home three hours north of New York in Western Massachusetts, and it doesn't have cable – or even a television.

"We realized that the two of us have the TV Disease," explains Mikula, 52. "Rachel can't have one because she'd watch it all the time!" Instead, they enjoy the solitude and home-cooked meals Mikula prepares.

Maddow does have a small TV in their tiny New York City apartment, but Mikula only uses it "so that I can watch her on Friday nights before I come pick her up."

The couple met in 1999, when Maddow, who then worked odd jobs, was hired to do yard work on Mikula's property in the Berkshires.

"It was very Desperate Housewives," jokes Maddow of how their relationship began.

Mikula looks like she particularly enjoys them.

You know I’m trying to lose weight, but even at 280 lb, I’m worried about starving after reading this, because I may never eat again. Rachel Maddow on the other hand....ah forget it.

TV is a bad thing but only because of people like Maddow.

"Rachel can't have one because she'd watch it all the time!"

Doubtful, since it would be impossible for her to see or hear. Think about it. Better yet......don't.

That Maddow feller could do a lot better, I’m sure. He needs to drop the “Clark Kent” look and spend some time in the gym though.

I can see why she's highly qualified to host a show on MSNBC now.

This is right in line with ABC “Family” Channel’s “new kind of family”...Any Freepers with small children watch out for that channel. It is all the type of programming you likely hope to avoid but it is sold as “family programming”. Luckily, I noticed before my daughter ever viewed it...

Some other Freeper here said, “Hollywood’s idea of free speech is them waving their crotch in your child’s face and daring you to stop them”...Indeed...
