West Coast Social Note

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a Democrat supporting Hillary Clinton for ’08, is taking some heat off the Republican front runners.

Voters are being distracted from questions like the hotness of Fred Thompson’s wife and the serial marriages of Rudy Giuliani by the L.A. soap opera of the Mayor divorcing his wife and admitting to an affair with Telemundo reporter Mirthala Salinas.

"I don't believe that the details of my personal life are relevant to my job,” the Mayor said at a recent press conference. If he really meant that, he is not living in today’s LaLaland but in some Hollywood costume drama of the past century.

No word of Sen. Clinton’s reaction, but the news may be creating flashbacks for her.

Meanwhile, HBO should have Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones standing by for “Villaraigosa, the Movie.”
