Who is Drew Grant?
Drew was born in Park Slope, New York City USA, on 24 May 1984 – she holds American nationality, and is known for being an editor at RealCearLife, and for being the ex-wife of successful lawyer and TV host Ari Melber.
Early life and education
Drew’s parents moved to Delaware soon after she was born, and she spent her entire childhood there – she rarely talks about her father and mother, and therefore not much is known about them. After she matriculated, Drew enrolled at the Oberlin College and graduated in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature.
One year after getting her degree, Drew started working as a pop culture editorial assistant at 236.com HuffPost’s sister website – ‘236.com is more like the funny sister who gets sent to her room for telling dirty jokes at the dinner table. And then wakes up the next day and tells four more during breakfast’. She stayed with them for over a year before she began working for Jossip Initiatives as their editor, spending 10 months there, and covered numerous important national and international stories.
Drew became a blogger in 2009 when she started working for the “Nerve” website, but quit in the same year and started working at Crushable.com as one of their writers giving her an opportunity to once again cover important national events. She became part of the Media Group in February 2011, and worked as their pop culture writer – she stayed with them for over half a year until she landed a job for The New York Observer, and worked as their art and entertainment editor until she recently landed a job for the Collider High Impact Entertainment News. She is currently simultaneously working for RealClearLife as their managing editor, and for Collider as their senior editor.
Aside from journalism, Drew is also an entrepreneur, as she founded a successful TV vertical “TV Download” – she is not an actress, but appeared in a single episode of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”.
Personal life and marriage
Drew married the famous reporter and lawyer Ali Melber in 2013; they met for the first time at a social event in 2010 and almost immediately fell for each other. They dated from the same day to 2013, when they exchanged their wedding vows in a private the ceremony to which they invited only their families and closest friends. It seems as things didn’t work out for them, as they divorced in 2017 for unknown reason – they didn’t have any children together, which made the whole procedure somewhat easier.
Drew found new love soon after she divorced – she met Richard Alexander in the summer of 2017 and the two are still dating today.
Who is Ari Melber?
Ari was born in Seattle, Washington State USA on 31 March 1980, so under the zodiac sign of Aries, and holding American nationality – he is a popular lawyer and a journalist who is currently working for NBC News, hosting the MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber” show.
Ari spent his childhood in Seattle, and then graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science – after which he moved to Washington D.C. and began working for Senator Maria Cantwell. After Maria, he worked with Senator John Kerry and was leading his Jewish outreach – after John lost the elections, Ari went back to studying and received his Doctor of Law degree from Cornell Law School. He is said to have been the best in his class, and interned at New York’s County Defender Services and then started working for the Center for Constitutional Rights. From 2009 to 2013, Ari worked for Floyd Abrams lawyer, then switched to writing political columns for numerous news programs and newspapers, before he was spotted by the people from MSNBC who asked him to be their guest host, becoming their chief legal correspondent in 2015.
Ari won an Emmy Award for the coverage of the Supreme Court for MSNBC – he was also the one who reported on the firing of James Comey who served as the FBI Director. Ari was the first to report about the Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee wanting to request President Trump’s tax returns, and h was the one to report the story of a man who was killed by the police after they tasered him too much.
Ari’s current net worth is estimated to be over $12 million and he is said to not have been dating anyone after he divorced Drew Grant. Ari’s quite a popular man on the Internet, as his Instagram account is followed by nearly 140,000 people while he uploaded over 850 pictures – he launched his Twitter account in July 2008, and has amassed over half a million followers and tweeted over 50,000 times.
Rumors about Drew’s drug addiction
What first started as rumors were later confirmed by Drew as she was struck by the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman – she was indeed once addicted to Fentanyl, which is a synthetic drug used for pain relief and anesthesia in combination with other drugs.
Drew started using it right after she finished college as she found it for a very cheap price on Craigslist – most of the people from her college were using some kind of drug, and since she didn’t want to use marijuana or heroin as these were and still are illegal, she chose pain medications instead. It felt really good at first, but as the time went by she started putting on weight, and nobody wanted to hire her – she started writing and realized she was very good at it, decided to take herself off drugs, and has been clean for quite a while now.
Appearance and net worth
Drew is almost 35, has medium long brown hair and brown eyes, but her height and weight are not known.
According to authoritative sources, Drew’s current net worth is estimated to be over $500,000 and is slowly rising as she’s very active at work.
