Lawrence O’Donnell, 67, of MNSBC, hasn’t been the same guy since divorcing his wife. Following the dissolution of almost two decades of joyful married life, the Boston native is still coming to terms with the traumatic event. From almost meeting his maker while vacationing with his brother to releasing a video of his notorious workplace breakdown, the host of The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell’s post-divorce life has been scarred by catastrophes and blunders. However, Tamron Hall, a former MSNBC star who was purportedly seeing him, appeared as a ray of hope when she revealed her desire to have children.
The End of Married Life With Ex-Wife Is Followed By Tragedies & Mishaps
If Lawrence and his claimed girlfriend decide to create a family, he will have a far more uncomplicated adjustment into parenting. After all, the 67-year-old novelist and TV broadcaster already has a daughter with his ex-wife Kathryn Harrold, Elizabeth Buckley Harrold. He and Kathryn, the Nightwing actress, age 71, married in 1994 after meeting via a mutual acquaintance in New York, only to split in 2013 after 19 years of marriage.
Kathryn was his better half, a kind of good luck charm in many respects. Nothing confirms this more than the following events. Lawrence and his brother were on vacation in the Virgin Islands less than a year after their divorce when they were involved in a drunk driving accident as passengers in a taxi. And for the following three years, the former Democratic director of staff for the Senate Finance Committee remained inactive until 8-minute footage of his breakdown on his program set was released in September of 2017. The release of his breakdown clip came less than three months after he signed a new contract with MSNBC. Lawrence, who has an estimated net worth of $16 million, is guaranteed a $4 million income under the terms of the new agreement.
Tamron Hall Is Dating: Former MSNBC Personality Is Open To Having Children
Many people may not remember, but reports of Lawrence and Tamron Hall’s affair circulated long before the former’s divorce was formalized. In February of 2012, the New York Post was the first media source to report on the developing relationship between the MSNBC characters. Neither Lawrence nor his claimed girlfriend, who has a sizable income and financial assets, have publicly addressed the rumors.
After attending the 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the alleged pair started dating speculations again. Tamron announced her intentions in an interview with People Magazine earlier that year, adding fuel to the fire.
“I haven’t given up hope of having a kid. But I just hope that whichever path I choose to parenting, whether it’s adoption or I’m able to conceive, I’m able to give someone as great a life as my parents gave me.”
Unfortunately, things fell apart between the two when Tamron revealed on Twitter in 2017 that she was seeing a man called Tony. She departed MSBNC and the Today Show less than a month later. She is currently happily married to music manager Steven Greener. Tamron’s lifetime ambition will be realized when the couple gives birth to their first kid, Mosses, in April 2019, the same year they married. The former Today Show co-host shared the joyous news on Instagram, posting a photo of herself cradling her bundle of joy. She wore a homemade hat in the picture with the word “Moses” inscribed.
Tamron revealed the news two months after she told out about her marriage on Instagram. She announced her pregnancy to her adoring admirers in the same video. Lawrence has been preoccupied with politics, while his putative ex-girlfriend has been preoccupied with motherhood. In May 2019, the polarizing broadcaster sparked controversy by accusing White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway of breaching the Hatch Act. His charges came after Kellyanne reportedly made disparaging remarks about presidential contender Joe Biden. The Hatch Act prohibits any government employee from using their position to influence the outcome of an election.
