MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace dating regular 'Deadline: White House' contributor

Nicolle Wallace and her husband of 14 years are getting a divorce, and she's reportedly dating one of her show's regular contributors.

The longtime host of MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" is dating New York Times writer Michael S. Schmidt, who appears on her show often. Page Six reports that the couple informed network execs about their romance, and they "were fine with it," especially following "Morning Joe" co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborbough's relationship going public.
