Meet TV Host, Laura Ingraham
She may often face backlash because of her many controversial comments but this television host isn't letting anything dampen her success. Laura Ingraham has been making headlines for years yet there are still a few secrets surrounding her personal life... Let's find out more about her love stories and children!
GROWING UP AS LAURA INGRAHAM
An innocent Laura Ingraham grew up in Glastonbury, Connecticut, where she was born to Anne Caroline (née Kozak) and James Frederick Ingraham III. Little did her parents know how her life would unfold... From a small-town girl to the face of headline news!
After graduating from Glastonbury High School in 1981, Ingraham procured a B.A. from Dartmouth College. In 1991, Ingraham gained an impressive Juris Doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law. Ingraham only started her media vocation during the 1990s and actually has a thorough background in Law.
TV, RADIO, SHE DOES IT ALL
Besides her work on television, she also dabbles in Radio. Ingraham launched The Laura Ingraham Show in April 2001. The show was heard on 306 stations and on XM Satellite Radio. In 2012, Ingraham was named as the No. 5 radio host in America by Talkers Magazine!
Despite later leaving this company, Ingraham continues to produce podcast material for Courtside's PodcastOne division. She is currently the host of The Ingraham Angle, the editor-in-chief of LifeZette, and a single mother to three children (whom you will meet later).
AN ESTABLISHED AUTHOR
We cannot deny that Laura is good with her words. This is why it makes sense that she is widely published. In fact, Laura has released multiple works including Shut Up & Sing, Power to the People, which was a New York Times number one bestseller, and Billionaire at the Barricades, amongst many others. But what about her dating history and current relationship status?
YOU MIGHT KNOW HER COLLEGE BOYFRIEND
Laura Ingraham dated Dinesh D'Souza during her college school days. Dinesh D'Souza seems to have a type because most of his past lovers including Ann Coulter are blonde and very traditional! They met at Dartmouth University while working at The Dartmouth Review in the mid-'80s, and they even got engaged at a certain point! But things did not work out in the end.
LAURA AND KEITH OLBERMANN
Did you know that Laura Ingraham had a past relationship with Keith Olbermann in 1998? This may come as an astonishment to some since Keith has very different views compared to Laura. The New Yorker published a piece about him in 2008 and revealed that he dated Laura 10 years prior.
No subtleties were given as far as how they met or how long they dated, however as indicated by Keith, their contradicting convictions really wasn't the fundamental explanation behind their split. There were other issues that led to their eventual split down the line.
HER ROMANCE WITH AN ECONOMIST
Laura Ingraham was also connected to a financial analyst named Lawrence H. Summers. He is certainly a man with some impressive accolades. Lawrence was the president of Harvard University from 2001 to 2006. Furthermore, in 2005, The Harvard Crimson reported that tabloids were buzzing with gossipy tidbits about [Robert's] relationship.
This was of course his rumored links with the radio personality Laura Ingraham. Neither Lawrence nor Laura have affirmed or denied those tidbits, however on the off chance that there's any fact to them, it's likely that they just dated for a short amount of time.
HER ENGAGEMENT TO JAMES V. REYES
Not everyone is aware that Laura Ingraham got engaged to James V. Reyes. This happened around the same time that she made a big life announcement (which we will uncover next). The media mogul reported that she was set to marry the Chicago finance manager James V. Reyes.
She apparently met him on a blind date! Sadly, their relationship didn't last. It was during this time when Laura also shared that she was diagnosed with cancer. The talk show host went through chemotherapy for some time. In the wake of having an effective medical procedure and recovering, she officially shared that she was no longer engaged to James.
HER BRUSH WITH CANCER
Regardless of her struggles with cancer, Laura called attention to the fact that she'd found a silver lining in the middle of the tough times. She said: "I really don’t know what I did to deserve such kindness but I will gladly wrap myself in it. It’s weird but getting cancer has made me feel more blessed than I ever felt before..."
LAURA'S CURRENT RELATIONSHIP STATUS
So, is Laura Ingraham hitched at this moment? Well, it does not seem like it. The host is not wedded or in any public relations and we don't know if she will be anytime soon. It's indistinct if Laura has any desire to walk down the aisle, however for the present moment, she's completely content as a single parent.
MEET HER THREE CHILDREN
Fans of the host will know that Laura is a single parent with three children: Michael Dmitri, Nikolai Peter, and Maria Caroline. Both of her young boys were born in Russia, while Maria is from Guatemala. Laura adopted these kids and adores them which is why many think she is content being single.
Laura Ingraham is the most-listened-to woman on political live radio. However, getting her three children to hear her out at home is another story. She spoke candidly about the current culture and raising her three little ones. She expressed that some of her friends call her crazy for adopting three kids under six...
WHAT DOES SHE SAY ABOUT RAISING HER KIDS
Laura has her own views (as per usual). She stated, "My friends called me insane. Within the last three years, I have adopted three children ... all under the age of six. Overnight I went from a carefree social butterfly to a working mom... I might be a little crazy for taking on three children under the age of six, but I’ll never be crazy enough to let the culture adopt my children."
THE ISSUES WITH HER BROTHER
Did you know that this conservative commentator Laura Ingraham has a gay brother? In fact, he has not been silent about his famous sister. In an interview, Curtis Ingraham lashed out at his acclaimed sister and what he calls her questionable perspectives.
“I think she’s a monster,” Curtis. He continued, "She’s very smart, she’s well-spoken, but her emotional heart is just kind of dead.” Now those are some big words from her brother. He has been standing up against his sister via social media since mid-2018. In a public Facebook remark posted seven months prior, he ascribed her views to their dad.
LAURA'S BROTHER CALLS HIS SISTER "MEAN"
Since June, Curtis Ingraham utilized his currently-deleted Twitter page to lash out at his sister. He added, “My sister's repeated mean-spirited, and insensitive remarks make me, her brother, question her very humanity." Why did he begin to make these public comments? Well, Curtis gave a clear explanation.
Curtis Ingraham shared that he felt pressed to begin standing up against his sister due to the current world affairs. In a reply to NBC News, Laura Ingraham said she was "shocked and saddened to learn of these false and hurtful online postings.” but added that she does in fact “miss him very much.”
LAURA VERSUS THE NBA STARS
Did you know that Laura offended LeBron James and Kevin Durant? The NBA stars both stand up against social issues and because of this, Laura felt she was compelled to comment. In certainty, she described James' remarks as "barely intelligible" and encouraged both ballplayers to “[keep quiet] and dribble.”
James and Durant both reacted to this. They called Ingraham's remarks belittling. Durant also stated, "Ignorance is something I try to ignore. That was definitely an ignorant comment." What do you think about this altercation between these celebrities?
LAURA VERSUS GRETA THUNBERG
The Fox News host Laura Ingraham also made a few comments toward the 16-year-old environmental activist, Greta Thunberg. She compared her to the perilous individuals in Stephen King's horror story, "Children of the Corn." "The Ingraham Angle" show host demonstrated a video of Thunberg's speech to world pioneers at the United Nations Climate Action Summit.
Thunberg gave a tearful reprimand to world pioneers and subsequent to circulating the video, Ingraham asked if any other individuals found her words chilling. She proceeded to show a short clip from the 1984 film "Children of the Corn," based on King's 1977 book. No apologies were made to Greta...
HER IMPRESSIVE MONEY MATTERS
Despite making a few enemies along the way, this host is going stronger than ever. The famous Laura Ingraham is a radio host, political commentator, and best-selling author which is why her huge net worth of $40 million is not surprising. It is also believed that she earns around $15 million per year. Suffice it to say, she has made a lot of money because of her views.
Laura has her fans and her foes but one thing no one can deny is that she is one successful woman. What do you think about her romantic past and did you think she was married? Leave us a comment and be sure to click the share button if you liked this article!
