The Inside Edition Anchor Was Once Married to Criminal Defense Attorney Edward Palermo
Despite being a public figure, Diane Mcinerney has been frugal with details of her personal life. However, we have been able to uncover that the media personality was once married to Edward Palermo, a criminal defense attorney.

For a while, Diane Mcinerney’s love life was largely left to speculations but that changed in February 2020 when People reported that she is set to get married. As reported, her fiance is the famous American rock singer-songwriter, Don Felder.
From what we gathered, the two had been dating for about two years and although the rock star is 24 years older than Diane, she accepted his proposal for marriage on the 19th of January during a sunset stroll in Malibu beach, California.

As it is with the media personality, it would not be the first time Don Felder is getting married. The Hall of Famer (Musician Hall of Fame and Museum) was once married to a woman identified as Susan Pickersgill and the union lasted from 1971 to 2000. Don and Susan’s marriage saw the birth of two sons named Cody and Jesse and two daughters named Rebecca and Leah.

He would release his first solo album, Airborne, in 1983 and has remained a dominant figure in the industry. The musician and TV personality seem to have found the perfect love with each other.
