Jeb Gossip: Alia's Off the Market



Gov. Jeb Bush announced Alia Faraj's engagement to "some guy named Rob" Tuesday morning before a gaggle of reporters.

"This is for the TV stations, particularly in Tampa. Over the years, my very talented communications director. . .  . we've had a little fun with the stations announcing to people who have inquired about Alia's love life. And we've made some announcements in the past. But today I'd like to show that my communication's director is engaged, and I'm really happy for her," Bush said taking Faraj's hand to display her new and sparkly princess-cut diamond ring.

"Can I go away, please?" Faraj asked while sinking away after the moment had passed. The lucky man is Robert Johnson, a senior cabinet aide in the governor's office.
