America’s Most Captivating Couples 2007

It was difficult to narrow down the entries, but we finally did it–and the result is the year’s most captivating couples! Ranging from a historic preservationist to a superhero to a TV talk show host (times two), it’s great to see so many proud women, not just in love, but spreading that love around and making the world a brighter place. Their stories inspired us, and we know they’ll inspire you, too. Say hello to this year’s sweethearts.


Karen B. Song
35, Filmmaker/Actor/Writer/Photographer

Robin Cloud
32, Stand-Up Comic/Actor/Writer/Correspondent for the PBS and Cable Show Under the Pink Carpet/Historic Preservationist

Brooklyn, NY
In July 2002, at the now-closed Starlight Lounge, Robin accidentally picked up a drink belonging to Karen’s friend, which gave Karen a great excuse to talk to the girl she’d been eyeing only moments before. The duo gabbed for three hours, and now, over four years later, they tell us, “The conversation continues.” The secrets to their enduring success are communication, travel, and “disco naps that lead to hot sex.” Both these gals also love movies and yoga, and are proud mommies to their dog Chula. “We are a whirlwind of creative energy,” they brag. “We are up for anything, any time, and live life in the moment, for the moment.”
