Kansas City Politics & Marriage Don't Mix: Two Power Player Divorces Coming Soon

Tonight we focus on a bit of blind item goodness where insiders will know and remain quiet whilst everyone else will loudly guess and show how much they DON'T know. 


Given the divorce rates in this nation, I'm not sure why these unhappy couples are waiting to make the split. Even worse . . . It gives everybody something to talk about . . . 

Because we don't really care about the illusion of marital bliss . . . We're not going to share much about this suffering amongst our betters.

All of THAT and 5 bucks will buy coffee at Starbucks.

And this brings us to the big leagues wherein a power couple calls it quits despite so much chatter about "conservative values" and other misgivings . . .

"The former Republican power couple appeared to unravel during the Trump administration, as Kellyanne Conway remained loyal to former President Trump, while her husband became an ardent opponent of the president, according to The New York Times."

Former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway and George Conway to divorce

Kellyanne Conway, a former senior adviser to Donald Trump as president, and her husband George Conway, who became a vociferously anti-Trump Republican, are to divorce, the Washington power couple announced on Saturday. The confirmation of the split is unlikely to surprise many in the politics-watching classes as, during the Trump administration, their public positions on the divisive rightwing president diverged quickly and radically.
