Given the long-held suspicions about their relationship, it’s bizarre Scarborough and Brzezinski didn’t let the cat out of the bag sooner. Instead, they sometimes seemed to fuel the rumors. Take Scarborough and Brzezinski’s interview with GQ in September 2016. When the interviewer asked if they were an item, Brzezinski replied: “I really don’t want to talk about my personal life. I mean, I think you can understand that.” Scarborough then added, “And, as always, I defer to Mika.”
Scarborough teased their romance again in an April 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, quipping, “We have a crackling on-air chemistry, and a crackling off-air chemistry, too.” But when the interviewer asked Scarborough to clarify, Brzezinski interjected with, “That’s good.” Scarborough then added: “I think that pretty much says it, doesn’t it?” Sheesh. It probably would have been less stressful for everyone if these two just released a statement from the get-go.
