Posturing, Posing, Polling and Press Releases:
HILLARY CLINTON's top aide HUMA ABEDIN announced yesterday that she's separating from her husband, former NY Democratic Congressman ANTHONY WEINER, after a new sexting controversy ensnared the controversial former lawmaker. In a statement, she said, "After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband."
Weiner's career ended after a previous sexting scandal in 2011, but was reportedly exchanging messages with a woman this past July 31st, when he changed the subject of the explicit conversation, saying, "Someone just climbed into my bed," according to the New York Post.
He attached a picture of his crotch, with his son curled up nearby in a blanket. (Pacelli)
Stars and their movies:
Just in time: Varietyreports the brand-new ANTHONY WEINER documentary, appropriately called, "Weiner," will have its world premiere on Showtime on Sun, Oct 22. The film, which debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival, won the U.S. Grand Jury Prize.
However, with yesterday's developments in mind, they may have to update the film before it's shown again...!
