Villaraigosas Headed for Splitsville?

We don't know if its true or not but blogger Luke Ford states that all is not happy in Getty House. In fact Ford claims that the mayor's wife, Connie Villaraigosa no longer lives in the mayor's mansion. Ford alleges the Villaraigosas haven't been seen together in public in nearly 10 months and the Mayor is no longer wearing his wedding ring. In fact, Ford says that an unnamed journalist makes the claim the Mayor is allegedly dating a member of his staff. Inquiring minds want to know.

Morality due to religion??? Yeah right. I live in a area where 78% of the population is hispanic (Mexican) and trust me, the reason why a good percentage get married is not 'basically' what you stated. It has a lot to do with culture. Some these young girls are jumping ship to get a way from tradition they allows more for men than women. Many get pregnant at a very early age, and I guess dudes try to be responsible so they marry. Lastly there is a lot of pressure from la familia. After all of this, infedelity is rampid. Every Mexican woman that I've ever talked too have stated (and this is a stereotype and does not apply to all Mexican men) that most that Mexican men will either be a drunk, a cheat, or he'll beat you. If not all, then at least one. I try to defend the Mexican man because I have some friends that are alright, but they start shutting me down in numbers, so....

L.A. man sues to take wife’s last name

January 12, 2007



LOS ANGELES -- Michael Buday is petitioning a federal judge for the right to take Diana Bijon’s last name in marriage as easily as she could take his last name.

Bijon, 28, an emergency room nurse, asked her fiance to change his last name to preserve her father’s family name because there are no sons. Buday, 29, a technical manager at an advertising firm, promised he would.

“I had a rough childhood with my father,” he says. ”We never really got along. Diana’s father stepped up, gave me career advice. He’s family.”

Keeping his promise has been more onerous than Buday expected. A woman can choose her husband’s name or her maiden name on a California marriage-license form after the couple pays a county application fee that ranges from $50 to $97. California and 43 other states provide no place on a marriage-license application for the groom to choose the bride’s surname.

To officially change his name to hers - and for future Social Security benefits, Buday says - a man must pay a $320 court fee, advertise his intention in a newspaper for four weeks and get a judge’s approval.

“The law makes it burdensome, if not close to impossible, to adopt the wife’s name,” says Mark Rosenbaum, legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California. ”It reflects the archaic notion of a woman’s subordinate place in the partnership.”

The ACLU sued California and Los Angeles County on Dec. 15 to have the separate treatment of Buday and Bijon outlawed as gender discrimination and a denial of equal protection. The couple were married in August 2005 under their separate names after state and county agencies rebuffed them.

Six states - Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Massachusetts, New York and North Dakota - give either spouse the right to choose the other’s last name.

A marrying couple that wants a combined or hyphenated name in California and most other states must go through the red tape of a court petition. That’s the route Antonio Villar of Los Angeles took in 1987 when he and his wife, Corina Raigosa, combined their names as Villaraigosa. He’s now mayor of the city.

A groom seldom asks to adopt his bride’s name, says Myleta Miller, a clerk at Atlanta’s Probate Court. No national statistics are kept, but Miller says she’s seen “no more than five” such applications in six years on the job.

Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Conny McCormack, named in the lawsuit, says her office uses a state-dictated form and will comply with any change judges or legislators might order.

”I certainly am in favor of the law ... being clarified,” McCormack says.

""You've always got to look to the next issue," Villaraigosa said in an interview. "And on every issue, there is a different set of allies and friends. You can't hold a grudge in politics any more than you should in life."

But the rising star had also committed an indiscretion that would cost him dearly. He had an affair that became the talk of the Eastside political elite. His wife filed for divorce just one day after he won his first election.

The infidelity cost Villaraigosa the friendship of Molina, among others. Two years later, Corina Villaraigosa took her husband back, but Molina continues to keep her distance.

"The personal stuff has not healed," Molina said. They remain just "political associates," she added."

This post was in response to a 10:20 PM ANON post challenging people to post the name of the woman in question - essentially questioning the veracity of such statements, well here it is. Print it before it gets censured again - and there was a follow-up post from some ADV lover verifying the facts.

The name of the woman is Martha Reyna. Her name is mentioned here only because she was already mentioned in the Ricardo Torres mailers and in the Times. She is Tony's comadre which means Tony is godfather to one of her four children. In 1994, Tony was contemplating running for office. Pat Bond, Gloria Molina's late consultant and herself a cancer survivor, adviced Tony not to run because cancer affects the whole family, not just the patient. She said she wouldn't do the campaign but Tony soon found Parke Skelton ready and willing to do the deed. Tony, thinking of himself as always, went forward with the campaign.

As if the pressures of the campaign weren't enough, Tony soon starts to have an affair with a long time family friend. Parke would send Tony and Martha out canvassing for votes - only thing is, they weren't canvassing. They were going to a motel in Silver Lake and Bill Mabie and Richard Polanco got wind of this. Parke, fearing that they would send pictures of Martha and Tony at this motel to Corina had Tony's home mail forwarded to the campaign office. While Tony and Martha were out doing their thing, Richard, Martha's husband and Tony's compadre and former state bar study partner was in the campaign office making calls to raise money for his good buddy Tony while Tony was out doing his wife.

Corina, Tony's wife, wasn't too involved in that campaign because she was home recovering from cancer surgery and treatment. She noticed no mail was arriving home and Corina is not a stupid woman, despite always going back to Tony after his little adventures. One day she calls Richard, Judge Richard now, and asks if Martha is home. Richard tells her she is in Palm Springs for a labor convention - she used to work for the Painters Union. Low and behold, Tony is also at the same convention.

Corina and Richard put two and two together and Corina confronts Tony. And you know how she got Tony to confess, she questioned his manhood so Tony coughs everything up - can't question his manhood, you know. This was during election day weekend. On election day, Xavier Becerra is up on stage introducing the victorious Tony and going on about what a good family man Tony is. All the campaign workers and virtually everyone else in the audience knows what has been happening and the snickering grows to a crescendo. Xavier would later confront Tony and gets in his face about what a fool he made of him - they will never be good friends again.

Corina doesn't even join Tony up on stage - some family guy. The next day she files for divorce. The case is still open. As for Richard, well Richard's hobby is gun collecting and he starts to hunt for Tony. Tony can't go home anymore and starts to ask his friends to put him up. Most refuse, including Gloria Molina and Ron Martinez. Tony ends up staying at the campaign office before he and Martha hit the road and go up north. This was in June and Tony still has a November general election and a December swearing in.

While on the lamb and hiding from Richard the gun collector, Martha gets word that her 13 year old daughter, Tony's goddaughter, couldn't take the drama anymore and runs away from home. This knocks some sense into Martha and she leaves Tony and returns home. Eventually, Martha and Richard get a divorce anyway.

But, this wasn't some drunken mistake that just happened. According to campaign staffers, Tony had been aggressively pursuing Martha - damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead! After all, Tony is God's gift to women and power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

Soon Tony is left without a lover, wife or family - even his sisters shun him. There is a fax that starts circulating - started at Gloria Molina's office, Martha Molina - Gloria's aid (no relation) couldn't stand Tony and gets this fax going - this was before e-mails and blogs. The fax is sort of a contest to give Tony a new name. With Corina Raigosa filing for divorce, Tony wouldn't dare use her last name, would he. Soome of the names are Villapendejo, Villapitosuelto, Villaprimadonna, Villahomewrecker, and on and on. I think the list got to over 100 new names for Tony.

Eventually, Tony and Corina get back together. Tony goes around giving his best mea culpa impersonation for all his bogus friends saying that he was such a bonehead. One of the arguments he actually used was that he was "in love" with Martha, as if Tony ever understood the meaning! As for Martha and Richard and Tony's godchildren, they are left by the side of the road like so many of Tony's other encounters. Hey, he got his rocks off right?

And there you have it, that the kind of man Tony is.

Please, give me a break.

Antonio Villaraigosa, like it or not, is a sleaze & sleaze is going to come out. It would be a perfect world if we didn't have sleazy politicians, but it's not, especially when you're dealing with someone of Tony's character. He lied to the 14th district just like he lied to his buddy Richard just like he lied to his wife - this is sleaze. You may call it broken promises, lack of character or lying but put all that in the context of a politician and it is SLEAZE.

The mistake Ricardo Torres made - and he is about as sleazy as they get - was that he backed off of his promise to continue to speak the truth. Alvin shouldn't make the same mistake. Latinos are about as uneducated about their leaders as any 3rd world population, it is our duty to let them know who their leaders are. Is it any wonder they end up with leaders like Ricahrd Alatorre - failed court ordered drug tests; Mike Hernandez - caught on camera buying drugs; Richard Polanco - caught with his mistress and mother of his two kids on the public payroll; Gloria Molina - caught trying to circumvent building and safety codes for her Mt. Washington pool, the list goes on and on.

All this stuff is true, Tony obviously has legal recourse - but he won't pursue it because he knows this is the truth. The voters should grow some balls and learn a little about hard knocks politics - Tony won't give you guys any quarter, he'll go right for your jugulars!

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa had a few of his own political consultants on hand, ones funded by his powerful fund-raising apparatus. Weaving through the crowd of working-class, primarily Spanish-speaking parents were nattily dressed operatives from the mayor’s 2005 campaign, coordinating with the organizers and distributing anti–L.A. Unified news articles. There was Nathan James, the mayor’s former campaign spokesman, and Michael Trujillo, the 2005 campaign volunteer who made a name for himself by writing anonymously on the Web site known as Mayor Sam, which regularly lobbed chatty if unsigned attacks on Villaraigosa’s enemies during and after the election.

Trujillo and James spent the past few months on the doomed campaign of Proposition 82, the preschool initiative defeated on June 6 despite a barrage of campaign ads featuring — you guessed it — Villaraigosa. But by Monday, they were part of the mayor’s Committee for Government Excellence and Accountability, which is pushing for passage in Sacramento of the mayor’s increasingly complicated plan for L.A. Unified.

For those of you who don't live in L.A., you may not be aware that we just elected our first Latino mayor since 1872. That's a pretty big deal to those of us who are of Mexican American descent.

It's even more special for me because I went to high school with the new First Lady of Los Angeles, Corina, pictured here with her husband, our new mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa.

Oddly enough, a few months back, I ran into Corina at Trader Joe's. We chatted for a bit about what we were doing because we hadn't seen each other in about thirty years. She told me she was a teacher and reading specialist. A couple of days later, I got an election mailer that had a picture of the mayoral hopeful and his wife and I thought, "that looks like Corina." Duh. Her name in high school had been Corina Raigosa (see below) and the couple had agreed to share both surnames upon marriage, hence Antonio Villar became Antonio Villaraigosa. I think that's really great, except Alicia Velasquezarmendariz would not fit on my driver's license.

Corina was one of the first people to befriend me when I transferred from Garfield High into the all-girl Catholic high school, Sacred Heart of Mary. We were known as the Scooters and our mascot was an elephant. Don't ask me why, because I don't know.
Anyway, I was known as "Ziggy" in those days, a reflection of my love for David Bowie and my all around weirdness. I've posted Corina's senior picture alongside mine, for your amusement. The writing on my picture is my own. I didn't have very many friends, so I wrote to myself, "To Alice, You're the best friend I ever had and I hope it will always be that way. I love ya, Ziggy."

Villaraigosa's petitioning Clinton for Vignali's release was used against him successfully by James K. Hahn as an issue in the 2001 Los Angeles mayoral election. Hahn attempted to use the issue again in the 2005 mayoral election against both Villaraigosa and Hertzberg in the primaries, and against Villaraigosa in the runoff, but was unable to use this issue for political gain again and lost the election.

Villaraigosa has gained a reputation as a national leader in the Democratic party. He has been featured on the cover of Newsweek with the accompanying headline, "Latino Power", has been featured in Time as one of the country's 25 most influential Latinos. Villaraigosa makes frequent trips to both Sacramento and Washington DC and makes appearances on national news programming and at events of prominence, such as the White House Correspondents Dinner. Villaraigosa delivered the Democratic Party's Spanish-language response to President George W. Bush's 2006 State of the Union address from his mayoral residence, The Getty House. Villaraigosa is the first mayor since Tom Bradley who has opted to live in The Getty House; both Mayors Riordan and Hahn chose to stay in their own homes, Riordan in his mansion in Brentwood, and Hahn in his single-family house in San Pedro.

At UCLA, Villaraigosa was a leader of the group MEChA. Some, such as John and Ken of KFI, derisively refer to him as Mayor Reconquista because of that and because of his support for amnesty for illegal immigrants.

After UCLA, Villaraigosa attended the People's College of Law (PCL), an unaccredited "community-run law school" in Los Angeles. Despite four attempts, Villaraigosa has not passed the California Bar Exam, and thus remains unlicensed to practice law. After PCL, he became a field representative/organizer with the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), where he made inroads with individuals that would help him make his move into politics, such as James M. Wood and Miguel Contreras, both deceased former Executive Treasurers of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. Villaraigosa was also President of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and the American Federation of Government Employees.

Corina never lived at the Getty mansion. Look at the housing recrods, Corina purchased the Mt. Washington home from Tony - she is the sole owner. Not a bad payoff for a marriage that has had an open divorce case file for neaqrly 13 years.

Good morning ladies and gentlemen (removes hat and places it over heart):

Madame V is a gracious lady. Her husband is a scoundrel; surely she knows that. Me mum says that how a man treats his wife is an accurate reflection of how he treats his comrades, savvy? But what I would like to know is this: all must be disclosed within the court in a divorce action. All FINANCIAL RECORDS and INCOME STATEMENTS including income from other sources. Character witnesses may be called to testify. Depositions taken, interrogatories propounded. To take one to the cleaners does not mean taking all of one’s money. Rather it means the airing of one’s undershorts in a most public manner. But what if the gracious lady already has another quietly standing by in the shadows? Methinks she does, and to that sirrah I say “Bravo” for you have won a fair prize indeed. Do I know the man? No, I do not. Do I wish I was the man? No, I do not. But I do know enough to know that only an honourable man is the man she chooses, savvy?

The same man who networked his high school has built a broad coalition behind his mayoral bid, racking up a fistful of endorsements from the county's largest labor, environmental, gay and women's groups.

True to form, at the same time he suffered his worst setback: the revelation that five years ago he wrote to the White House on behalf of convicted drug dealer Carlos Vignali, calling Vignali's sentence unjust. Villaraigosa says he didn't bother to find out more about the charges against Vignali before drafting the letter, a stunning mistake, even for a political novice.

He acted at the behest of Vignali's father, who "had been a friend," Villaraigosa said in an interview. "He spoke to me as a father. He said, 'My son is innocent.' . . . I went with my heart instead of my head."

Antonio is only loyal to himself, period. Corina is a good person and mother. She's better off without him. If the divorce is amicable, there won't be any financial or personal documents filed because there will be no disputes. If they do get a divorce, they'll go the quiet route or they'll do what Clinton did and just live apart. Maybe they'll be seen together just for big events. She'll just say that she's busy being a teacher and can't make all the events.

Yes, the guy is a scoundrel in the personal relationship department but could you lay off the Mexican crap? His wandering eyes have to do with his upbringing and his personality. It has nothing to do with the fact that he's Mexican. Not all Mexicans are cheats.

Yelling hysterically that "we clean your toilets!" in front of 500,000 illegals downtown is a total turnoff to non-Latino voters (not to mention his other baggage) and is why Hillary (or anyone) would be a fool to choose him as VP.

Did anyone ever notice that right after Antonio won the Mayoral election he instantly put a photo of himelf on the new LA City website. In that photo he looked the way he does naturally with brown skin. A week later he changed that photo for the current one which is exposed incorrectly and he looks totally white. Why did he do that? He became the Mayor because he was Mexican but now that he's the Mayor he wants to be white?

Its shameful that Antonio would put his wife and kids to deal with his dirty laundry. There is no way Antonio would ever allow anything to become public record. Rumor has it he is very abusive towards women and staffers. If Jose lost 9 staffers in one year how many has Antonio lost since being Mayor? Some of his key directors have left.

I LOVE Captain Jack's posts here on mayor sam...Why are you threatened by the fact that the guy is able to amuse and inform me. Man, you must be some insecure loser. What a dark heart. I'm sorry society has treated you this way. Don't end up with a big black helment permanently attached to your head, young Annikin. It's especially funny you are getting so mad, being who you are. My only actual question is, why does it piss you off so much when I throw an accolaid Jack's way. (Besides the fact you are a crybaby loser?)

WE're all having a good laugh at the expense of a wife who tried to keep her family together and protect her kids. None of us would like that happening to our family but Antonio put himself out there so unfortunately, they'll take the heat.

"commanding figure that Antonio is" What planet is this guy living on. Antonio has become the laughing stock of the nation. In LA he's the clown in front of cameras. Even his inner circle make fun of him but no one has the guts to tell him. How sad is that?

Carlos Alvarado, Eastside area director we all know left because of AV's dictator ways. Funny there is another eastside director but he's never been to any eastside meetings. Guess they scare him.

I think they moved TV 35 to "on demand" channel 1. Try that. Like free pay-per-view/on demand.

But yeah, it's an attempt to get the high profile council meetings to a lower profile. Aka, off the regular channel scan, and onto "on demand" where you really have to look for it.

That way, the mayor and City Council can steamroll their shady agenda much more under the wire.

The poor thing is probably terrified because she knows more than anyone what this guy is capable of.

I saw them together at the Getty when they were hosting Mecha Boys evil twin, Vicente Fox, a few months ago. Mecha Boy treated her like shit. He kept ignoring her and giving her condescending looks. What an asshole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zuma channel 35 was not moved. Its not On Demand. Its been blacked out all day. A lot of people called Time Warner who said it was LA City View's fault. LA City View said they're sending the feed its Time Warner and now 12 hours later it still is blacked out. You would think one of the clowncil would do something since THEY negoiated the contract to take over Aldephia and Comcast. Ever since Time Warner took over its really screwed up.

If indeed the Mayor was having an affair with someone at Channel 52 it would be Mirthala Salinas -- she only dates married men and loves polticians. It sure wouldn't be Azucena, that's for sure...she's a decent person.

I just checked with title. There have been no recent transfers on the Villaraigos home at 3764 San Rafael since 2002 when Tony bought his wife Corina out. He owns that house as a married man but as his separate property. They probably rented it out when they moved to the mansion. Only 2/3 of that rumor was true. He hasn't been wearing his wedding ring in months. He hasn't been seen with her in public in months. But, he did not give her the house or transfer ownership in any way.

Staffers who left Huizar's office were those left behind by Villaraigosa. The staffers were promised a position at the Mayor's office and were conviniently forgotten. Surely, they didn't want the story to repeat itself. As for Villar himself, looks like repeat stories is what he lives for.

Well, six months later and the Ford guy was right. The Mayor and his wife have split which is what Mirthala Salinas said she wanted all along. She is the Political reporter at Telemundo at the center of this controversy.
