Lisa Ling is Engaged to a Doctor, Never Had to Sit Near Elisabeth Hasselback, Lives Wondrous Life

You know the chick who was on The View between the first blonde they axed, and the current one who is crazy right wing and cries a lot? The Asian chick? Yeah, that’s Lisa Ling and she’s getting married. This is probably a slow news day. Britney needs to set her house afire while making Eggo waffles or something.

Oprah Winfrey Show and National Geographic Channel correspondent Lisa Ling is engaged to Chicago-based doctor Paul Song, her rep tells PEOPLE.

Song, 41, an oncologist who works at Chicago’s Little Company of Mary Hospital, flew her family and his own to Chicago over the holidays to surprise Ling at the restaurant Charlie Trotter’s, where he proposed in a private dining room.

The couple, who met through mutual friends, plan to marry later this year.

Did you know Lisa Ling was engaged in 2005 as well? Those details are after the jump.

Ling, 33, broke off her engagement to media entrepreneur Philip Levine in October 2005. She was a co-host on ABC’s The View before leaving in 2002 to host National Geographic’s Ultimate Explorer.

Song earned his medical degree from George Washington University School of Medicine and trained at the University of Chicago Hospitals.

She works for Oprah and is marrying a doctor. Life couldn’t be any sweeter for this broad. Why doesn’t she just live in a house made of candy and get flown to work by fairies and braid her hair with magic sparkles? God, I’m jealous.
