Current TV’s David Shuster’s bride to be Kera Rennert replied to questions we had concerning her impending nuptials. For starters, what did she think of Shuster at 15 when they met at Camp Tel Yehudah?
“I didn’t have a crush on David at age 15 because I was too busy sneaking into his bunk to make out with one of the campers he was supposed to be watching,” Rennert, a freelance journalist based in New York, confided over email. “Plus, Shuster was an old man back then (and now, though he’s aged very, very well).”
She said Yehudah was a Jewish camp and “we ran around singing Hebrew songs and doing funny Israeli dances, along with the usual summer camp activities – sports, arts & crafts, and apparently making long-lasting impressions on counselors.” (Seriously, a Jewish camp?)
Shuster gave up his fiance’s email and prompted us to ask “what the hell” she’s thinking. We thought that was a bit cruel, and instead asked about her current “state of mind” on marrying Shuster. Rennert replied, “My present state of mind about marrying him is, well…let’s just say…Valium is my friend. KIDDING! I couldn’t be happier! While some people may know David for intriguing controversies, I see well beyond that. He is, without a doubt, the warmest, kindest, funniest, most loving person I’ve ever known. In all honesty, I feel like the luckiest woman in the world.
Rennert, also a journalist, closed with a question: “Did I just make you throw up?”
