Poker Pro and Celebrity Apprentice Finalist Annie Duke Gets Engaged
The world's top female poker pro is off the market.
Annie Duke announced on Christmas Day via Twitter that she and her longtime live-in boyfriend, actor and movie producer Joe "Ugly" Reitman, are engaged to be married.
Reitman, 42, proposed to Duke, 45, by hiding an engagement ring in her Christmas stocking, she revealed.
Duke, whose Twitter feed can be seen at www.twitter.com/annieduke, Tweeted: "I said yes! I am still shaky. Total surprise from Joe Ugly. I am the luckiest woman ever. Best man on earth. I am so in love. Sigh. So Joe Ugly put the ring in the bottom of my stocking instead of the traditional chocolate orange. Sneaky! But now I'm pissed that I didn't get a chocolate orange this year! Freaking Joe Ugly."
It will be the second marriage for both.
Reitman was married to another professional poker player, Shannon Elizabeth, from 2002-2005.
Duke, whose maiden name was Anne Lederer, is the sister of poker pro Howard "The Professor" Lederer.
She has four children from her previous marriage--Maud, Leo, Lucy and Nelly--who live with her and Reitman in Los Angeles.
So what was it that got "Joe Ugly" to pop the question?
Duke didn't reveal that via Twitter, but last year, when she appeared on the Donald Trump-hosted televison program "Celebrity Apprentice," she bragged about her skills at oral sex, famously saying "I give a mean blowjob."
