Anna Chapman wants Edward Snowden, even if the rest of the world does not.

As in she wants him to marry her. The ex-spy tweeted yesterday:

“Snowden, will you marry me?!”

Chapman, the former Russian spy turned model, was posing as a real-estate agent in the U.S. in 2010 when she was accused of gathering intel for Russia.

She and nine others were deported back to Russia in a prisoner swap.

Now 31, Anna Chapman has become a celebrity in her homeland, posing for magazines and serving as host of the TV show, Secrets of the World.


Snowden may have caught Anna’s attention since he landed at Moscow’s airport seeking refuge. She added, “@nsa will you look after our children?”

Well played.

But even as she looks to become the Spy Who Shagged Snowden, he seems to be unavailable at the moment, and may be rejected by Russia as well.

After 11 days, the AP reported earlier this week:

“Deputy Foreign Minister said Russia had received no request for political asylum from Edward Snowden and he had to solve his problems himself.”

The NSA whistleblower has been on the run since he spilled secrets on the classified surveillance programs to the press, and is in diplomatic limbo.

His passport has been revoked, and countless requests for asylum have been refused by various countries. So options are few for the 30-year-old.

Any rendezvous with Chapman may need to happen in an airport bathroom in other words, since the odds of him ever walking out of one are slim.
