I’m sure he wishes his wife would just hurry up and die so he can live his life the way he wants to.

I’ll have to admit that I missed that he hadn’t already owned up to it. Any thinking person had already come to the conclusion that he was the father.

"I have been able to spend time with her during the past year and trust that future efforts to show her the love and affection she deserves can be done privately and in peace."

That all depends on Elizabeth's mood.

Perhaps recent stories were the first attempts at rebuilding his public image. But they sure don’t make her look like a saint.

The aide who originally took the rap is about to come out with a tell-all. Guess the Breck Girl wanted to beat him to the punch.
