Rachel Maddow doesn't bring her work home with her.
The MSNBC host, 37, and her artist girlfriend Susan Mikula spend each weekend at their quaint home three hours north of New York in Western Massachusetts, and it doesn't have cable or even a television.
"We realized that the two of us have the TV Disease," explains Mikula, 52. "Rachel can't have one because she'd watch it all the time!" Instead, they enjoy the solitude and home-cooked meals Mikula prepares.
Maddow does have a small TV in their tiny New York City apartment, but Mikula only uses it "so that I can watch her on Friday nights before I come pick her up."
The couple met in 1999, when Maddow, who then worked odd jobs, was hired to do yard work on Mikula's property in the Berkshires.
"It was very Desperate Housewives," jokes Maddow of how their relationship began.

No, it was not.
I was afraid there would be pictures.....damn you!
Mikula looks like she particularly enjoys them.
You know I’m trying to lose weight, but even at 280 lb, I’m worried about starving after reading this, because I may never eat again. Rachel Maddow on the other hand....ah forget it.
Where is the “Barf Alert”?
This is too much information. The pic makes it over the top....
WELL WE CAN SEE WHO WEARS THE PANTS IN THAT RELATIONSHIP.
I was thinking it but not going to say it. But, yeah.
What a fat cow. . Who plays the man?
One always looks like a man.
Obviously, with no, ummm, meat.
TV is a bad thing but only because of people like Maddow.
“I have to roll her in flour sometimes,” joked Mancow.
Looks like Susan could lay off of some of those home cooked meals.
Now that’s some tonnage, there.
Doubtful, since it would be impossible for her to see or hear. Think about it. Better yet......don't.
That Maddow feller could do a lot better, I’m sure. He needs to drop the “Clark Kent” look and spend some time in the gym though.
Emphasis on 'desperate'.
