Splitsville for the Pirros

It's about time Jeanine got rid of that guy.

After standing by her man as he served a federal prison sentence, admitted fathering a child with another woman and embarrassed her political campaign by telling the press she was not giving him enough attention, Jeanine F. Pirro is separating from her husband, a family spokesman said yesterday.

The split comes a year after Ms. Pirro lost her bid to become state attorney general, in a campaign that was hounded by personal concerns as the couple’s marriage troubles made headlines and Ms. Pirro acknowledged that she was under federal investigation for plotting to record her husband, Albert J. Pirro, to catch him in a suspected affair.


Albert sees himself as the victim.

In a New York magazine article last year, Mr. Pirro denied having a new affair, but said he sought the company of other women because he felt he was not getting enough attention from his wife, who once made People magazine’s Most Beautiful People list.

“You need to have someone tell you that you’re smart or you’re good-looking or you made a good business decision,” he told the magazine. “Do I think that I would like to have more attention at home? Yeah, and, you know, if you’re not going to get attention at home, I think you really need to make some decisions about your future.”

Jeanine, you can do so much better.

    The only problem now is that it makes her look more sensible and thus, ptentially electable outside of Westchester County.

    Jeanine may be able to do better than Albert, but will she?  I doubt it.  Both of them are ugly pieces of work.  Seems to me that they were a great match.

    She's such a skunk, maybe Fox News would hire her.

    Oh, wait.  They already did.
