LA Mayor and Telemondo Reporter Call it Quits

The hot affair between LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and television news reporter Mirthala Salinas is kaput. I'm sure they thought it was true love at the time, but what a price they paid.

Villaraigosa's political standing was affected, and his wife has filed for divorce. Salinas was suspended, then left her job at Telemundo.

Can Villaraigosa recover politically? Or will he always be the Mayor who left his wife for a tv reporter who covered city affairs?

    I didn't know the pegged trouser look was back in.

    Must be an LA thing.

    He may recover, but I doubt it.

    Neither of them deserves the chance to recover from this.

    Seems to have recovered from similar sleaze, although he did wind up marrying Judith Nathan... but of course as we well know: IOKIYAR.
