In this July 2007 video LA. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Admits Affair with Mirthala Salinas and denies she is pregnant
Well, it took a few years and Mayor Villaraigosa is now free to marry his current girlfriend, KTLA Reporter Lu Parker.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s marriage to Corina Villaraigosa is officially dissolved, a court spokesman said Wednesday.
Villaraigosa’s wife, Corina Villaraigosa, filed for divorce in June 2007, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She made the move to end their 20-year marriage after Villaraigosa publicly accepted responsibility for their separation, saying he felt a “personal sense of failure.”
Remember the summer of love scandal in 2007 when it was discovered that Villaraigosa had an ongoing affiar with Telemundo reporter Mirthala Salinas.
Now, he can move on and most probably end up running for California Governor in 4-8 years or the U.S. Senate when Dianne Feinstein retires.

Continuing Deja Vu – All over again for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
and a Los Angeles area television reporter.
A Los Angeles television reporter is dating Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, about two years after his extramarital affair with another local newscaster led to the breakup of his 20-year marriage.
KTLA-TV Channel 5 reporter Lu Parker, a former Miss U.S.A., has been dating Villaraigosa since March, station officials confirmed Monday. On Sunday, while working as a weekend anchor, Parker announced a story about the likelihood of Villaraigosa running for governor in 2010.
“Now that we’re aware of the relationship, she will no longer be covering local politics,” said KTLA-TV news director Jason Ball, who defended the journalist’s ethics but declined to elaborate. “I have the utmost faith in Lu Parker’s abilities.”
You would think that Lu Parker would have learned from the lessons of Mirthala Salinas, no?
What do they say about love being blind?
By the way, Parker won’t have to worry about her boyfriend running for California Governor next year. The Mayor’s divorce is not final and he has not yet been sworn in for a second term as Los Angeles Mayor. Tony will allow his personal life to sort out and let Gavin Newsom and Jerry Brown beat themselves senseless next year in a contested California Democrat Party Primary election .
