Who is Paula Throckmorton?

Born under the sign of Cancer on the 9th of July 1964, in an unspecified part of USA, Paula Throckmorton is a 53-year-old Caucasian author, jewelry designer and meditation teacher of unknown descent. She is definitely best known to the world for being the wife of the CNN host, journalist, author, and editor-at-large of Time magazine, Fareed Zakaria. However, she has had successes in her writing profession and jewelry design over three decades.

Early Life and Education

It is unknown where Paula was raised, who her parents are and their and professions, and she is apparently an only child. It is not specified when she took an interest in what she does today, including her childhood hobbies, nor which high school she matriculated from, but she enrolled at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and graduated with a Master of Business Administration degree in 1985. Other than that, nothing else is available about her beginnings across the media sources.


It looks like Paula didn’t seek a job in her profession after graduating, since she was first employed as a jewelry maker, but then began writing for both the “Wall Street Journal” and “Slate.”. She had become interested in meditation in her late teens, which continued on such that after graduating she started teaching other people how to meditate, and has kept up this job ever since. She also started writing, having published a photography journal and sourcebook entitled “Black Book” in 1996, and a subsequent similarly named book in 1997. Her jewelry-making business took a back seat for a while, but is apparently still part of her professional life.

Love Life

As for Paula’s romantic involvements, it is unspecified whether she had any relationships prior to her current one. Paula began dating her future husband Fareed Zakaria in the mid-‘90s, which began as a blind date set up by their mutual friends. They married in 1997, since producing a son named Omar, and two daughters named Lila and Sofia. There have been rumors concerning their marriage, as a possible divorce was mentioned in the media – when asked about his marital situation, Fareed stated: ‘It’s true that we’re having troubles and I have taken a small apartment a few blocks away, but I still live at our house most days of the week. We’re trying to work things out. Divorce is not on the horizon.’ They began living separately in 2011, and it was alleged that they were about to sign their divorce papers, but apparently their differences have been resolved.

Her Husband

Born Fareed Rafiq Zakaria on the 20th of January 1964 in Mumbai, India, Fareed Zakaria is an Indian-American journalist and author, mostly famous for his long-term screen presence as the host of CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” TV show. He is also a weekly columnist for “The Washington Post”, as well as the editor of “Newsweek International”, and an editor-at-large of “Time” magazine. Fareed is one of the few journalists who have been suspended from their high-paying job, specifically due to an accusation of plagiarism in August 2012, when he was accused of stealing content from a New Yorker article for his own work on gun control. It was alleged that he violated the intellectual property of the New Yorker journalist Jill Lepore. Fareed offered a public apology, explaining that he made a terrible mistake. After six days of thorough review, he was reinstated at both CNN and “Time”, when the magazine stated the incident was ‘isolated’ and ‘unintentional’, while CNN said they found nothing that justified the continuation of his suspension.

What is Paula Throckmorton’s Net Worth?

Over $1 million, while her yearly earnings are said to be well into three figures, and her husband’s net worth is estimated at over $8 million. She made her fortune as a jewelry maker, yoga instructor and writer, while earning a considerable salary writing for the “Wall Street Journal” and “Slate.”

1Whenever I am acting, it's everything, you know. If I'm researching a role, I'm completely consumed in that and, between action and cut, I live in this suspended time. It's a really amazing experience and the only other thing I get it from is music.
2I think as a child you know when it's time for your parents to split. You realize they love each other, but they're not in love with each other. And I think as a child it's much better for your parents to split than for them to stay and have dysfunction within the family.
3The hardest part is getting your clothes off at first in front of the people who haven't seen you naked before. The first time you get nude in front of someone, it's hard, and then it's, 'Well, you've seen everything now; it's OK, we can shoot the rest of the day'.

  1. If she likes to “keep a low profile” publicity-wise, maybe you could refrain from publishing her personal stats (such as BRA SIZE???); we live in a specific social climate nowdays, we are supposed to be far from the early-1960s attitude that women have only one useful purpose.

    (On the upside, though, I may go find her jewelry designs.)
    Otherwise, please stop objectifying people.

  2. I can’t believe Chuey B. actually commented that this website should NOT publish personal bio and stats.
    She came to this website, “biographytribune.com”,
    likely after searching for personal info that this article OBJECTIFIES for her.
    That is the POINT.
    “Chuey” THAT over awhile!
