ck-11.jpegThis just in.

For a segment called “What I Really Think”, MSNBC’s “Hardball” Host Chris Matthews invited his wife, Kathleen, on as a guest on this afternoon’s show in New York.

Matthews joked that his wife was a little “rusty” on air. Kathleen Matthews, who has filled in on his show before, is the former co-anchor of ABC 7. She covered news in D.C. for more than 25 years. She’s now the Executive V.P. of Global Communications and Public Affairs at Marriott in Bethesda.

Coming off the break, Matthews noted that he and his wife have been married for 30 years.

Marriott Holiday Party Held at Matthews Home

ck-4.jpeg In an era of government bailouts, fancy office parties are out — even for Marriott, the hotel chain that owns the lavish Ritz Carlton or the Marriott Wardman Park (where Albritton held a recent holiday party as stated in an aforementioned Fishbowl item).

Instead of an opulent affair at one of its dozens of ballrooms around town, several dozen Marriott employees celebrated at the Chevy Chase home of MSNBC “Hardball” Host Chris Matthews whose wife, Kathleen, is Marriott’s Executive V.P. of Global Communications & Public Affairs.

Who needs fancy hors d’oeuvres?

The Matthews’ served guests a light lunch from Fresh Start Catering, a service spun from DC Central Kitchen, the downtown soup kitchen that got its start salvaging excess food from Inauguration parties to give to the needy. Staff comprises those formerly in need of the charitable services who were trained in the DC Kitchen’s Culinary Job Training Program.

The 6’5″ cable host provided what was described as “modest entertainment” and worked the room clad in an elf hat.
