Keith Olbermann, Still A Bachelor
Keith Olbermann is still a bachelor, and people have been raising some serious questions.
With celebrities marrying and divorcing many times, Keith is an exception. Many stars are much-married in fact, and some like Keith is still single even at 59.
Keith has never opened up about his wedding plans. However, he did have a girlfriend in the past. The one with Katy Tur is by far the most significant because they had dated for almost a year. Though Katy went on to get married to another person, our man Keith is still without one and seems not interested in tying the knot anytime soon.
Speak about some people getting a lucky break as it is understood that his ex-girlfriend, Katy Tur is where she is now because of Keith. She got an opportunity to do a brief stint with the NBCU’s Weather Channel because of him and went on to be a celebrity reporter in NBC. Katy broke up with him after a year and was busy in her profession. Not that we can blame Katy for doing that; she is pretty free to choose her partner, and Keith just was not on her list.

He did, however, meet his ex-girlfriend soon after the breakup, where else but in the stage that he helped her get there into first place—that is on TV.
Both of them were talking to each other on a piece Keith was doing regarding a topic where he had to interview Katy on the matter. Thought it was awkward at first, Keith signed off the interview with ‘dear friend’ to her.
