Huma Abedin: “I Want People To Know We’re A Normal Family”

Posted: July 19, 2012 by Lisa Estall

Huma Abedin: “I Want People To Know We’re A Normal Family”

Former Congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin gave an exclusive interview to People magazine on life with their 6-month-old Jordan.

Weiner, 47, said, “I’m very happy in my present life. The only next dramatic steps I’m planning on are Jordan’s first.”

Abedin – who is deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – married Weiner in 2010.

She admitted, “It took a lot of work to get to where are are today, but I want people to know we’re a normal family. My husband did a really stupid thing.

“It was an extremely painful time. Anthony has spent every day since [the scandal] trying to be the best dad and husband he can be. I’m proud to be married to him.”

The article even states that Weiner does all the laundry and that he sought counsel – even though he doesn’t explain further.

Last May Weiner was caught sending lewd pictures of himself to several women. The result was the loss of his job. The family moved from Queens to Manhattan.

“I’ve had enormous regrets about what I put Huma through, how I let my constituents down,” Weiner told the magazine.

Hillary Clinton Furious With NCIS Producers?

Hillary Clinton Furious With NCIS Producers?

Friday March 4, 2011

Hillary Clinton Furious With NCIS Producers?HILLARY Clinton is not a happy lady!

Sources say the Secretary of State is furious at TV show NCIS after the show’s plot centered around an assassination attempt by a suicide bomber involving Clinton, who was played by a lookalike.

“Because the suicide bomber got within 50 yards of the Hillary character on the show, the real Hillary is worried that people may get the impression it’s easy to get through HER security team,” an insider told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“It’s not that she thinks al-Qaeda was watching NCIS and they’re planning to attack her, but there are crazy people who would love to get near her. Having a faux Hillary character in a scene with a suicide bomber may lead people to believe that she’s an easy target.

“And Hillary isn’t just worried about herself. She worries that if a mentally unstable viewer watched the show, he might believe he can get close to Chelsea or Bill, too.

“There are many U.S. haters in this world who would love to see Hillary killed. The fact that a huge American television network would use a look-alike for a high-ranking government official in an assassination scene is absurd and irresponsible to her.”

We’re So Ready For Alyssa Milano’s Comeback

We’re So Ready For Alyssa Milano’s Comeback

Alyssa Milano is due for a comeback, don’t you think? Yes, we know, it’s not like she really went anywhere since, after all, she was on Charmed for like 45 years, but we never watched Charmed, so our only exposure to her lately is Proactiv commercials and that company she runs where Alyssa makes sports clothes for women. It’s about time she got back into the mainstream, non-CW Network fray. Lucky for us, 2011 is the year that it’s all happening. Milano has just signed on to appear in the Garry Marshall film New Year’s Eve, the distant cousin to last year’s Valentine’s Day mega-ensemble feature. The giant cast also includes Katherine Heigl, who replaced Halle Berry, plus Jessica Biel, Jon Bon Jovi, Abigail Breslin, Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele and Sarah Jessica Parker. In the film, Milano will play a nurse tasked with caring for an elderly patient on New Year’s Eve. We bet she learns a lesson about life and love!

Milano will also appear in Hall Pass, the Owen Wilson/Jason Sudeikis movie slated for release later this year, so she’s definitely feeling the casting love these days. We’re psyched to see Samantha Micelli finally getting the audience she deserves.
