Orszag engaged to ABC News reporter

Peter Orszag, the Office of Management and Budget Director, is engaged.

Peter Orszag, the Office of Management and Budget Director, is engaged.

(CNN) - The White House's so-called "money-hunk" is engaged.

Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag is set to marry ABC News correspondent Bianna Golodryga, Golodryga announced on ABC's Good Morning America Tuesday.

The couple first met at the White House Correspondents Dinner last May, and the man who White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel once said "made nerdy sexy" soon won Golodryga's heart.

"[He's] tall, dark and he could say Golodryga and spell it after our first date. That is a winner in my book," she said.

The 31-year-old Golodryga, has worked for ABC since 2007 and mainly reports on business issues. Orszag, 41, is the former director of the Congressional Budget Office and a former veteran of the Clinton administration.

    In the words of Tony Montana in 'Scarface' – "In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women." Have you seen pictures of this one? She's a hottie, so it had to be the money and the power, not the looks lol.

    I am glad for them but this proves once again how far CNN has slipped in not presenting the news that needs to be presented

    Is this the best you can come up with to make people forget how bad this administration is?

    Hunkness is in the eye of the beholder. Be glad for them instead of skewering him for his nerdiness. Deciding whether someone is a hunk or not is completely subjective. Everyone has his/her own criteria.

    I find this man the complete opposite of hunk. Hardly a hunk would have been a more fitting title for this worthless news piece

    CNN – You're losing it! This is not news!! Why can't I find articles about the unjust wars? Or about what is happening with our health care? Did America come out of the recession and I missed that news as well? Has the Obama administration taken care of all the unemployed? How safe are we as far as travel now?

    So many more importat news for a "News Only" company. Leave the "hunks" stuff to People magazine and tell us what really matters in this country.

    Good luck you two, just remember to never go to bed mad at each other or leave each other with anger in the air. you never know what may happen after you walk out the door.

    This is not a news worthy event.

    With all that is going on, I can't believe CNN would waste its time with such an article.

    This is nothing but tabloid jornalism.

    Surely you can do better.

    Right wing nuts are sooooo funny. Blame everything on the "libral media" and forget the fact you are LOOSERS and no one can make you look good.

    Oh, for goodness sakes, lighten up people. Why must there be constant doom and gloom, fear and scare? If you want to crawl in a hole and be afraid do so but leave the rest of us out of it. Perhaps some of you people should escape to an island and have a pity party with your closest Republicans in Congress who seem to be afraid of moving forward as well.
