As the old saying goes, when you know, you know. Just six months into a courtship with an old summer camp friend, Current TV’s David Shuster is getting married. “Eddie was correct — the woman I was with Friday night at Levante’s in DC is ‘attractive, thin, and has long hair,” Shuster wrote FishbowlDC last night, referring to a sighting we wrote Monday. “Her name is Kera Rennert. And, she is now my fiancé. I proposed Sunday night (on my birthday) in Central Park.”
Shuster and Bloomberg‘s Julianna Goldman married in 2007 at Sixth and I Historic Synagogue and separated and separated in 2011. Their nuptials appeared in the NYT wedding section on May 27 of that year. At the time, he worked for MSNBC.
The TV journo continued on with more details: “Kera and I have known each other for 25 years — we first met at summer camp. Back then, I was 20 years old and a counselor; Kera was 15 years old and a camper. No, we did not hook up back up then, nor did I think about it, nor did she.” (Ever the journalist, Shuster knew where our demented minds would go. We’re certainly delighted to hear that he didn’t commit statutory rape.)
The pair reconnected in New York in December, found much in common — she is also divorced — and have been dating now for about six months. Rennert is a New York-based freelance writer/producer/director for CBS News and Discovery Channel.
Congratulations to the happy couple! And Kera, for better or for worse, welcome to the Fishbowl.
