The Mayor’s Having a Fling With the Anchor and Summer’s Suddenly Steamy

LOS ANGELES When he was elected mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa was just what this city needed. After the bowl of oatmeal Jimmy Hahn and the vacationing septuagenarian Dick Riordan ended their terms, the little firecracker with the professionally whitened smile was the hyperactive booster rooster that L.A. craved. In his off-hours, Riordan rode his bike. Hahn went to Home Depot. Villaraigosa goes to Vanity Fair parties — after putting in 15-hour days.

The mayor was on fire. Only we didn’t know how hot.

Here’s the dish. The 54-year-old married mayor has a 35-year-old girlfriend, who happens to be a local TV anchor, who happens to be smokin’ herself, who reported on the air last month that the mayor was splitting from his wife. Why? She didn’t say. Why? Because she is his mistress.

“The rumors were true,” read Mirthala Salinas, an anchor on NBC-Telemundo Channel 52, in Spanish on June 8. “Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa confirmed today that he is separating from his wife, Corina, after more than 20 years of marriage.” …

Note that, as usual when it is bad news, Mr. Villaraigosa’s political affiliation is no where mentioned in the article.

Also note that the Washington Post sought to bury this in its back pages on a Friday during a holiday weekend.

Note too that the Post is treating the whole thing as a joke, giving it to an (obviously campy gay) gossip writer.

Lastly, notice that there is no mention of Mr. Villaraigosa being the national co-chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

If it were a Republican presidential candidate who was famous for having a wandering spouse — that would be the front page headline above the fold.
