Former New York Governor and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's in for an interesting few weeks. For one thing, his prime time CNN show, Parker Spitzer premiered last night to...interesting...reviews. For another, Alex Gibney's documentary on his downfall -- Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Elliot Spitzer -- is being released in theaters soon, and is already available on-demand on some cable networks (like, naturally, Time-Warner Cable). Yet, one assertion -- and the question of its validity -- somehow keeps rising to the surface: Is the Black Socks Thing actually true?
At first, Roger Stone was going to get "gal pal" Kristin Davis on the ballot if Elliot Spitzer tried a comeback (Davis apparently shares Stone's endless fascination with Spitzer's socks).
But that was a month ago. Now, Stone thinks the former madam -- or, as he puts it, the "busty businesswoman" -- has a shot at half a million votes if she runs as the Libertarian candidate, and he wants to help her do it.More »
Less than 11 years after his explosive sex scandal rocked Washington, Clinton is said by a longtime ally to be "hungry for power, and eager to get back in the saddle, so to speak."
We attempted to reach Monica Lewinsky and were told we had reached a wrong number, and that if we did not stop calling we would be reported to the police. Calls to the former President's Harlem office were greeted with howls of derisive laughter.
And oh yeah, the Spitzer pseudo-comeback story continues with the New York Post's long quotes from their faithful reader Ashley Dupre, who is "happy to see that Mr. Spitzer is moving on with his life and considering getting back into politics" but wishes people would give her the same kind of break they are allegedly giving him...
Former Governor Eliot Spitzer, who now has a higher popularity rating than actual Governor David Paterson, appeared at a New York social gala event last night with his wife, Silda, the Daily News reported -- the first time the two have appeared publicly since Spitzer resigned as Governor (above) after it was revealed that he had patronized an upscale prostitution ring.
The couple appeared at a children's benefit gala at the Walfdorf-Astoria last night, holding hands and -- according to the News -- batting eyes at one another throughout the evening.
Spitzer has cast himself as a media pundit of late, writing columns for Slate and appearing on CNN and other news outlets as a commentator on the economic crisis. Then again, it would be hard for an ego like Spitzer's to stay away from the public light -- and crammed into his father's real estate office -- for too long.
The book offers other hijinks, says the News, like a "New York City developer who loved tiny panties on the girls -- and on himself" and, Davis' website promises, "An Oscar-winning actor who engaged in hot tub hijinks," which should be great fun for people who have "Lace" on DVD.
