Chelsea Clinton Spotted Without Engagement Ring

After months of rumors and speculation, it looks like Chelsea Clinton did not marry boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky this summer in Martha's Vineyard. Reliable Sources reports that the 29-year-old former first daughter attended the swearing in of friend and Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall last Thursday, and her left ring finger was "conspicuously bare."

Marc is the son of former Iowa congressman and convicted felon Edward Mezvinsky and former Pennsylvania congresswoman Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky.

Chelsea's mother, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had denied the wedding rumors, saying if there was an engagement, she didn't know anything about it.

But, Reliable Resources writes, it's likely that a Clinton-Mezvinsky engagement wouldn't exactly get a press release.

Given the curtain of privacy that has always surrounded Chelsea, the idea of a hush-hush engagement and wedding ceremony sounded plausible, especially because the vogue in VIP weddings is to deny, deny, deny until the deed is done -- all the better to keep paparazzi at bay.
