Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no. Two sources tell Gawker that during their affair, John Edwards and his mistress, Rielle Hunter, allegedly filmed a sex tape that contains “several sex acts.” Allegedly, Hunter is behind the camera at the beginning of it. Apparently Andrew Young, a former aide of Edwards’ who is publishing a tell-all book next month, is the one who found the sex tape at Hunter’s house.
Gawker hasn’t actually seen the alleged sex tape, so take this rumor with a grain of salt. But remember, Edwards admitted that he is the father of a love child, Frances Quinn, with Hunter, after denying it for two years.
Yuck. We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: poor Elizabeth! [Gawker] Keep reading »
When spurned mistress LaVaughnie Wilkins put up billboards around Manhattan to embarrass her former lover, Charles Phillips, the only thing that surprised me about it was how publicly she chose to do it. But “getting revenge” didn’t surprise me at all. Spurned mistresses want revenge. Spurned mistresses go for the jugular. Spurned mistresses do crazy things because they are hurt.
Last year I fooled around with a guy who had a girlfriend. While we were cheating, he repeatedly told me he wanted to break up with his girlfriend to be with me and, like an idiot, I believed him. Lots of bad stuff happened and I lost my temper, big time: I wrote a long email to this guy’s girlfriend explaining everything about how he’d been two-timing her with me and sent it to her work email.
I’m not particularly proud of this story, but I’m going to tell it to you anyway. Keep reading »
That saying “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”? It just got real, y’all: Gawker has multiple sources saying that a lovey-dovey billboard in Times Square featuring a huge photo of a couple named Charles Phillips and YaVaughnie Wilkins is actually the work of a scorned mistress (that would be YaVaughnie Wilkins) who wants to embarrass her former lover. Not only might Phillips be a married man, but he is also the co-president of a company called Oracle and a member of Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board.
Oh, dear. Keep reading »
Most folks tend to get cozy under blankets, or a Snuggie, and watch a good movie when they get snowed in, but not some Britons. Instead, they arrange extra-marital affairs. IllicitEncounters.com, a website that connects married people with others seeking affairs, reported yesterday that it had received a record number of new profiles over 24 hours during recent wintry weather. The site said more than 2,567 people signed up in the last six days, and most new members were from areas severely hit by the winter weather, like Hampshire, Berkshire, and the West Country. A spokesperson for the site theorizes that many of the people could have been waiting for a time to join when they weren’t under the watch of coworkers or partners. The site has had to hire temporary personnel to cope with the unexpected jump in members. [Reuters] Keep reading »
This year has seen so much coverage of extra-marital affairs. I don’t care whose marriage is on the rocks; I can’t muster up any outrage. But I sure can gossip about them. Keep reading »
Oh, man. The drama of Steve Philips is kind of like David Letterman on crack, plus a stalker. Phillips, an ESPN baseball analyst and former general manager of the Mets, is a married man and father of four. Still, he schtupped a 22-year-old production assistant named Brooke Hundley at least three times over the summer. He apparently felt “meh” about her, but Hundley was under the impression they were meant to be together. And so she went CUH-RAZY with jealousy trying to expose the affair to Phillips’ wife.

This is the part where becoming an overnight sensation gets not-so-pretty. Yesterday afternoon, 17-year-old U.S. Open phenom Melanie Oudin went down in her match against number 9-seeded Caroline Wozniacki. And to add insult to injury, this morning reporters are poking into the details of her personal life. Last summer, Melanie’s dad, John, filed for divorce from her mom, Leslie. Sports Illustrated tracked down the divorce papers and found that the grounds given were adultery. John claimed that
Melanie Leslie was having an affair with Brian de Villiers, aka Melanie’s coach. Keep reading »
I don’t even have time to list all the politicians who’ve been caught having affairs in recent years. But at least Mark Sanford and John Edwards had the good sense not to talk about their dalliances on tape. California State Assemblyman Mike Duvall, a self-stated “family values warrior” who recently won the Ethics in America award, forgot that he was wearing a microphone when, before an assembly meeting, he dished all the dirty deets of his affair(s) to an assembly buddy. “I’ve been getting into spanking her,” he said on the recording. “I like it!” [CNN]

A cheating Guatemalan woman faked her own kidnapping in Barcelona, so she could keep cheating with her Spanish lover. Ay carumba! Mark Sanford, are you taking notes? A woman in Spain texted her hubby in Guatemala that she’d been kidnapped, sexually assaulted, and held against her will with other kidnappees. In truth, the two-timer was boning a guy she met online. Her worried hubby alerted the Embassy of Spain in Guatemala, who called cops in Spain. Police found her in Barcelona, where she claimed she’d escaped her captors. However, when a medical examination found she had no injuries befitting a rape or kidnapping, the woman admitted the whole charade. And she did it all for a little nookie on the side. [Barcelona Reporter, Euro Weekly] Keep reading »
A call girl who worked for the same escort agency from which disgraced New York Governor Eliot Spitzer procured call girls and who saw Spitzer as a client is claiming that she serviced the needs of another unnamed governor. According to a New York call girl named “Annie,” described as an “elegant blond courtesan,” she met with “Gov. X” three times. The governor is married, and a representative told a reporter that Gov. X had never called upon a hooker for sexual services. Annie contends otherwise, claiming her former boss, ex-madam Kristin Davis, booked her with the unidentified governor through a man who went by “Michael.” He picked her up in a sports car, they all went to dinner, and then she and the governor went to an apartment that the agency maintained and had sex. “He was a very standard client. He didn’t take the full hour. There was no exchange of money. Michael handled the payment.” After several more dates, Annie found out the governor was married, and “His wife is quite prominent in her own right.” So, who is it? Gawker has a list of some possibilities. I’m putting my money on Pennsylvania governor Rendell, whose wife is a federal judge, but who knows. With jaws wagging, only time will tell.
