We live in a world where it seems very difficult for high-profile men to keep their pants zipped, so it’s no surprise that rumors of infidelity have popped up in the wake of Al and Tipper Gore’s split.
Both the National Enquirer and Star Magazine are reporting that Tipper was suspicious of Al’s faithfulness. Both mags are pretty non-commital in the truth telling area, but it’s strange that they both have the same story making me think that this could be true.
Star keeps it pretty vague, stating that Tipper was only paranoid about Al cheating, not that he actually did. “She has it in her head that all politicians are chased by women. And that most of them eventually give in and cheat. She thought Al did too,” a source told the tab. Thanks Bill Clinton and John Edwards!
National Enquirer gets way more specific, naming women (plural, of course) Al supposedly got down and dirty with. Who are these mystery ladies?
-Donna: High school sweetheart. Sadly no longer alive to confirm or deny the claim.
-Kathleen McGinty: Cabinet member and “Environmental Advisor.” They were rumored to have had a fling in 1995.
-Unknown massage therapist: Happened in 2000. Tipper was reportedly jealous and Al switched to having only men give him rub downs.
-Unknown Hollywood star: Happened in 2001 and Al denied it. I can’t even begin to guess who this would be.
-Unknown cheerleader: 23 years old and working for the Tennessee Titans.
I hope that none of this is true and these women certainly seem like stereotypes. Yet, they left out ‘unknown porn star,’ which is the trendiest professional to cheat with lately (Tiger, Jesse James), so it may be based off of real information. You never know. You just never know. Those who actually know the couple believe it was just a case of them growing apart.
