Separated At Birth: MSNBC’s Krystal Ball

Now that congressional candidate-turned political pundit Krystal Ball has a regular spot co-anchoring MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” we’ve been able to take a closer look at her. And while we may be overshooting here, we’re ready to say Ball looks very much like the beautiful Dutchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton.

“Ha! Very flattering,” Middleton Ball told us. “I’ll take being compared to her any day!”

She told us we’re not the first to compare her to Middleton but that she is “more commonly” compared to a young Demi Moore. “Both are extremely flattering and a bit of a stretch,” she said.

If you’re wondering where she got the curious name, a 2011 WaPo profile on Ball notes that her father, a physicist, wrote his doctoral dissertation on crystals.
