Kristen Powers is not single and currently married to Dr. Marty Makar as of 2015, despite numerous rumors that the pair had gotten a divorce. Powers and her husband are still married and possess a strong relationship.
Powers' husband, a surgeon and professor at John Hopkins University, married the journalist in 2010. Although the couple has not had any children, they have superseded divorce rumors and report their relationship strong. This also dismisses a number of rumors that Powers married the doctor so that he could obtain a legal green card. In addition to this claim, her marriage to a Coptic Egyptian has caused her additional controversy, as she is a leftist, but has been outspoken about Islam in Egypt.
However, Powers has been off the market for a while, as she previously had an affair with controversial Congressmen Anthony Weiner in 2002. She explained that the relationship ended because of the Congressman's lies, demeanor towards women and overall predatory personality. While she initially disputed the claims against Weiner that were exposed in his infamous sex scandal, Powers later recanted her remarks and called for his immediate resignation. Although she has attempted to maintain her privacy, as most television personalities try to, Powers is confirmed to be married.
