Oh, Bill and Gina, What Ever Am I To Do With You Two?

An article in Vanity Fair this week attacks Bill Clinton, suggesting that he is out of control personally and “seeing a lot of women on the road.” Insinuating that the former president has been banging cocktail waitresses two at a time whilst campaiging for his wife's presidency across the country.

Miss Gina, who was fingered in the article as a possible paramour of the former president, has demanded a retraction and correction, via her lawyers, which we doubt she'll ever see.

“Through the innuendo-laden assertion that Ms. Gershon has been ‘visiting’ with President Clinton in California, the article outrageously insinuates that Ms. Gershon has had an inappropriate sexual relationship with President Clinton. This is absolutely false … and she is extremely offended by the false and defamatory inference that she engaged in an adulterous relationship with the president,” reads the letter from Gershon’s attorney Lynda B. Goldman of Lavely & Singer law firm.

In the Vanity article, Todd Purdum wrote,

Over the last few years, aides have winced … at more recent high-end Hollywood dinner-party gossip that Clinton has been seen visiting with the actress Gina Gershon in California.”
According to Gershon’s attorney,
“The truth, however, is that Ms. Gershon has only been in the same room as President Clinton on three occasions, during which she was always in the presence of anywhere from approximately a dozen people to several hundred or more. These are the true facts. … It is clear, however, that Vanity Fair wasn’t interested in learning the truth. Rumor-mongering was substituted for fact-checking.”
Sounds like we got beef.

Bill Clinton was also quick to criticize and condemn the article as full of falsehoods. In fact, Hillary’s campaign scrambled to reel back some of the former president’s more colourful language about Todd Purdum, whom Clinton described as “sleazy,” “dishonest,” “slimy” and “a scumbag.”

Oh, Bill; Oh, Gina, what ever am I to do with you two?
