In LA its Sex and the City Hall
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is married Ñ and dating Mirthala Salinas, left, an anchor on a Telemundo channel.
LOS ANGELES Ñ When he was elected mayor in 2005, Antonio Villaraigosa was just what Los Angeles needed. After the bowl of oatmeal Jimmy Hahn and the vacationing septuagenarian Dick Riordan ended their terms, the little firecracker with the Chiclet smile was the hyperactive booster rooster the city craved.
The Democratic mayor was on fire. Only the city didn't know how hot.
The 54-year-old married mayor has a 35-year-old girlfriend, who happens to be a local TV anchor, 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.
