Did Eddie Huang Get Married to the Girlfriend He Got Engaged to? Find Out Along with Other Interesting Facts

Being engaged pretty much mean that a couple might be on the road to tie the knot and get married. Some couples take their engagement into marital dimensions, while some relationships fail to reach that level.

But what happened to the engaged relation between American chef, Eddie Huang and his girlfriend turned fiance? Did they get married after getting engaged or did they venture on separate paths?

Well, you no longer have to wonder!

Is Eddie Huang Married?

Eddie Huang has always maintained a low-key personal life, no wonder there are budding curiosities amidst his fans. But one thing we all know is that Eddie once mentioned that he was engaged to his girlfriend named Dena, who grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania in an Italian-Irish-American family.

Huang made his relationship with Dena come to the recognition of readers and his fans through his memoir. In the memoir, Eddie also expressed how it was like to get the permission from her father to propose her.

Speaking of him asking for Mr. Fusco's (Dena's father) permission to propose Dena, he wrote what her father said as,

“Eddie, it’s a Communist country and, look, you know I’m an open-minded g#uy, but come on, I don’t have to tell you how bad it can get. It’s not the same. It’s not America.”

But eventually, his efforts paid off and then Mr. Fusco decided to give them his blessing, and they got engaged. However, the engagement between them did not last, and thus, they called off their engagement 18 months later. Speaking about the breakup and the calling off of the engagement, Eddie shared,

“I wanted to cross a bridge so I paid the toll, I paid the toll, I asked the father, I felt like a monkey.”

Nothing was revealed by the man about the reason for the demise of their relationship, but it is now clear that the two did not take their relationship to marital dimensions and the connection was limited to engagement only.

So, now that everyone is aware that he did not get married to the girl he was engaged to and failed to make her his wife; everyone might be willing to know as to how his romantic aspect looks like at present.

Eddie has posted some interesting pictures on his Instagram where he has called Lena Sanvito his "wifey." And that is why people are suspecting if the man has tied the knot to her.

However, Eddie has preferred not to speak about his connection with the lady who features in his post. Hence, without his official word of affirmation or falsification, no significant conclusion can be reached for now.

Eddie Huang & The Sexual Assault He Kept Hidden For 20 Long Years:

Eddie Huang, like several teenagers and kids these days, was a victim of sexual harassment back when he was 14. Eddie suffered harassment during a Baptist church ski trip and kept it a secret for 20 long years until he chose to open up about it in a New York Magazine cut.

Eddie wrote,

“I just feel powerless to the memory. Him taking his time with the shower, steaming up the room, then coming out with his d— hanging out,”

“He took out a Bible and started to read scripture with his d— hard,” 

“My chest started to tighten and I couldn’t breathe, fearful for what would happen next. The panic turned to outrage and ultimately humiliation.”

But despite having the thoughts of battling the person, their difference in height and size stopped him. He also chose not to call the cops or tell anyone about it, fearing no one would believe in his words.

“Even if I told somebody, there was nothing they could give back to make me whole again."

"Finally, after more than 15 minutes, he packed his d— and left.”

Eddie mentioned that he had a friend with him on the trip who was the only one to know about the incident. Also, Eddie never thought about speaking about the incident because he didn't want it to define him. However, the Harvey Weinstein's case happened later when Eddie was in China with his family, girlfriend, and brothers. Eddie went through the allegations that were reported against Harvey and also he came forth the Kevin Spacey's share of misdeed. Moreover, he was inspired by Anthony Rapp, as he shared things that Eddie never could!
