Laura Ingraham’s boyfriends have made for strange political bedfellows at times. She has not stuck to dating only conservatives, although she is known for her own right-wing views.

In fact, Ingraham once dated the outspoken liberal pundit Keith Olbermann years ago, who later had his own television show on politics on MSNBC. Although they share in common punditry and the public eye, their politics are the polar opposite. However, Olbermann told The New Yorker that politics did not drive the pair apart. “Olbermann dated Ingraham briefly a decade ago,” the magazine reported in 2008.

“There were a few problems,” he told The New Yorker. “There were a few things that I could see were going to be impediments. Oddly, they were not political things.” The magazine article did not elaborate, but it quoted Ingraham as criticizing Olbermann on the air. “I believe MSNBC really needs to bring in a medical team at this point. . . . I don’t know what happened to him. I really don’t. He didn’t use to be this way,” The New Yorker quoted her as saying.


2. Ingraham Dated Dinesh D’Souza, Who Was Seeking an ‘All-American Girl’ to Marry

A 2015 article in Vanity Fair described D’Souza as “political pundit, writer, documentary-film maker, and onetime wunderkind of the intellectual elite.” It’s probably not surprising, then, that the pair might find things in common. However, their relationship did not work out.

According to Vanity Fair, D’Souza dated several blonde conservative women. “After dating Laura Ingraham and then Ann Coulter, he found the ultimate prize in Dixie Brubaker, a beautiful blonde from a conservative California family, whom he had met while working in the White House,” the magazine reports, quoting D’Souza as saying, “It was my mission to marry the all-American girl.”

D’Souza and Ingraham were once engaged, but they never married.

The blond conservative pundit is getting married in late May or early June to Washington businessman James V. Reyes. The two met on a blind date last Memorial Day weekend.” Page Six described Reyes as helping run a family business.

The New York Daily News described him as “beer distributor Jimmy Reyes – a 43-year-old divorced father of two who happens to be a staunch supporter of ­President Bush and former fiance of right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham” and said he also dated Katie Couric. Reyes was described as a wealthy and private contributor to Republican candidates.
