New York Daily News: There is no one you are sexting now?
Anthony Weiner: You can quibble about beginnings, middles and ends but what we’re talking about is over a year ago.
That’s … not a “no.” But NYC mayoral candidate/sexting aficianado Anthony Weiner is a slippery one, so go figure that he wouldn’t answer this question. After the jump, here’s what Carlos Danger had to say about whether any more ladies will come out of the woodwork with additional pictures of his dick (see the others — NSFW! — here). Oh, excuse me, these ladies were his “friends.” Keep reading »
Well, this is awkward: Anthony Weiner got his ass handed to him on a platter by a New York City voter who thinks his lying, cheating self has no business running the city. Last week the bomb dropped that Weiner, who is running for mayor of NYC, carried on a sexting-and-phone-sex affair with a 22-year-old Indiana woman, Sydney Leathers, even after he had resigned from Congress over past a past sexting scandal. Weiner is adamant that he is staying in the race. Staten Island resident and retired schoolteacher Peg Brunda confronted dick pic enthusiast Carlos Danger to ask why he thought he had the “moral authority” to hire and fire educators in the NYC school system when he himself struggles with basic sexual impulse control.

It ain’t a scandal until someone gives a tell-all interview to “Inside Edition.” Good one, Sydney Leathers! The progressive activist from Indiana who carried on a sexting-and-phone-sex relationship with NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner has given her first TV interview. Originally, Leather had only shared all her sexts with the gossip blog The Dirty. In the clips from this interview, she rehashes everything we already know about their dirty deeds — the texts were “very explicit”; he promised to buy her a condo in Chicago where they could go have sex; he’s a total liar — but she does debut a “beauty mark” piercing above her upper lip. She also agrees Carlos Danger is most definitely a dirty old man. Oh, Sydney, I kinda like you. [Gothamist]
Sydney Elaine Leathers, a 23-year-old progressive activist from Indiana, has been identified by Buzzfeed as the young woman who was sexting and phone sexing Democratic New York City Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. The former Congressman, we learned yesterday, was identifying himself online under the avatar name “Carlos Danger.”
Sydney Leathers? Carlos Danger? What, did Sarah Palin pick the names for all these people? Keep reading »
Former Democratic Representative and current New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted today to even more naughty behavior online: he reportedly exchanged XXX pics and had sexy chats on the phone with a young woman for a period of six months. Although the timeline is still unclear, it is thought that this latest affair occurred during or just after he resigned from Congress in 2011, when he was busted sexting dick pics to ladies who aren’t his wife and lying to the public about it.

So, apparently cheating doesn’t take up as much free time as we thought it would. While married women were busy scouting out the profile of this weekend’s lover on AshleyMadison.com, 52,390 of them took a quick pause for survey about what they like to wear. The straying missus doesn’t walked around with a scarlet letter pinned to her chest, after all. And what did it reveal? Not a whole lot. The whole staff of The Frisky could be cheating wives according to this “data.” The top five stores a cheating wife apparently shops in are Banana Republic, J.Crew, Macy’s, Ann Taylor and H&M; she prefers Marc Jacobs purses, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and tankinis at the beach; and her summer must-haves are a maxi dress, colored skinny jeans, and a pencil skirt. How … interesting? According to AshleyMadison.com’s CEO:
“Becoming more concerned with one’s appearance is often a dead giveaway for an affair. If your spouse suddenly seems more consumed with style and putting outfits together after spending years in sweat pants, that is a tell tale sign she could be two timing.”
I’m guessing these answers are completely the same as faithful wives. But maybe that’s exactly what these cheating wives want you to think. Sneaky! [AshleyMadison.com]
After finding flirtatious texts that her boyfriend sent to another woman, Shena Moore took the all too familiar route of blaming the other woman and not her boyfriend for the transgression. Although this reaction is typical, Shena’s revenge plan, thankfully, is not. In something described by the victim Brittany Rager as “like being in a ‘Saw’ movie,” the alleged attack involved Shena; her father, Gerald Moore; her boyfriend, John Gulley (yeah, the one who sent the texts in the first place); and a pair of gardening shears.
The kicker? The two women have been friends since childhood and are so close that Brittany Rager referred to Shena’s father as “dad,” too. Keep reading »
Yesterday, Jezebel revealed that they had maybe probably discovered the identity of the “other woman” in the breakup of Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon’s marriage. According to the piece, Eva Prinz, 34, has been married twice and is believed to still be married to her second husband, with whom she allegedly has an open marriage. Moore and Gordon, members of the now defunct band Sonic Youth, were together for 30 years before splitting in late 2011. In an interview with Elle, Gordon said that they split because Moore, in the midst of a “midlife crisis,” was carrying on an affair with a “starstruck woman” that she declined to name. Jezebel has identified that woman as Prinz, an art book editor (bearing a striking resemblance to Emily VanCamp in this photo, BTW) who met Moore when she commissioned him to write a book about mixtapes in 2005. The details Gordon gave in her Elle interview do match Jezebel’s profile of Prinz, so while there’s no firm confirmation, yeah, looks like she’s probably the woman, as Jezebel put it, “who broke up Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore.”
Except I wouldn’t put it that way. Because, in my view, the only people who could break up Moore and Gordon’s marriage are Moore and Gordon. In this case, going by Gordon’s account (as Moore has chosen not to share his), Moore broke his wedding vows and refused to end his affair, so Gordon ended the marriage. That Prinz was — allegedly! — the third party involved still doesn’t make her responsible.
I speak from experience. Keep reading »
I’ve been doing my utmost to debate less, but it’s hard when you’re as naturally opinionated as I am. This is compounded by the fact I come from a highly opinionated gene pool. Our family dinners sometimes spiral into debates. And when I say “sometimes,” I really mean 90 percent of the time.
Usually my mother plays referee, and when I say “referee,” I mean she’ll eventually shout, “Will you all be quiet!” My father plays the contrarian, opposing whatever view I hold. And my sisters may or may not be on my side.
I thought everyone did this — debate over dinner, as an expression of love and then pretend like nothing happened. Apparently not! Dinner is for small talk. So I’ve been trying to reprogram myself whenever I go out, because my opinions can be a bit disruptive. Keep reading »
