A public marriage proposal may have worked out well for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, but it’s a stunt that should always be approached with caution. Timing and location are everything as is being at least mostly confident that the person you’re asking is going to respond positively. I’m pretty sure that Chirag Shah failed to run through the “Should I Propose In Public?” checklist before he seized control of his girlfriend Simone Jhingoor’s “Today Show” segment — which was supposed to be about her nonprofit, the Women’s Housing and Economic Development Corporation  – and used the airtime to ask her to marry him. The look on Simone’s face and the awkward distance between the newly engaged couple seemed to indicate that despite saying “yes” to his proposal, Simone was not especially psyched that she had rehearsed and prepared for a segment about her nonprofit work had been derailed by her now-fiance’s kind of selfish desire to be splashy and romantic. I hope “The Today Show” has her back tomorrow to discuss her work, as was originally intended. [Jezebel]

  • Wow, that moment was about HIM and not about HER at all. It was as if he wanted his moment on camera and this proposal was his way of getting his “close up”. SMH
    Dear Men, women (well probably not the Kardashians) prefer simple, meaningful moments!
    A romantic dinner, candle light, and a beautiful heartfelt proposal would have gone over much better!
