Sunday's San Francisco Chronicle featured the most bizarre interview with with San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom's girlfriend, actress Jennifer Siebel. How she got clearance to do this interview I have no idea, but I consider it a coup on the part of the reporter that she got Siebel to open up as much as she did.
For those that aren't aware, Mayor McHottie recently revealed that he had an affair with his close friend's wife (both were on his payroll until recently), then checked himself into fake rehab, the kind of rehab where you have your meetings over the phone and they tell you it's okay to drink, just not so much. And maybe stick to white wine only.
Siebel stood by her man and essentially blamed Ruby Rippey-Tourk (the wife) for causing the scandal. Then she commented on the SFist site (when they called her out for being a total beeyotch) that she was misquoted and she didn't mean to say that (again, the mind boggles), but that, yeah, it was all Ruby's fault.
This is a woman who has a fancy degree from Stanford yet writes (about Ruby), "i just wish that she would leave gavin and i alone." *cringe*
Now Jennifer Siebel is sorry. No, sorry, "deeply sorry" for all of it. The interview, the blog commenting, further hurting the players in this scandal...This is a mess.
Gavin, Gavin, Gavin. Get yourself some people stat. No one's got your back, dude, and I find that sad. Shocking and sad. See if I were the one in charge of your media relations I would have someone babysitting your dumb girlfriend 24/7. I'd fill her to the brim with margaritas then toss her into Bloomingdale's for a good 8-9 hours at a stretch. And I'd definitely hide her laptop. Damage control, dude. Someone needs to be on it. Jen just hit the flush lever on your career. Call me!
P.S. Jennifer, if you are reading this, walk away from the computer, honey.
