First lady Melania Trump says she loves President Donald Trump and has
“much more important things to think about” than allegations he cheated on her with a porn star, a Playboy Playmate or anyone else. Mrs. Trump, who was interviewed by ABC while touring Africa last week, said people are just spreading rumors about her marriage. “I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage and circulate the gossip,” she said. “But I understand the gossip sells newspapers, magazines … and, unfortunately, we live in this kind of world today.” She insisted allegations of her husband’s infidelities are not a concern. Trump, who during the 2016 presidential campaign was heard on an old Access Hollywood tape talking about groping and trying to have sex with women, has been accused of having multiple affairs. Asked in the interview if she loves her husband, Mrs. Trump said, “Yes, we are fine. Yes.” She played down a suggestion that the repeated rumors of his philandering had put a strain on their marriage. “It is not concern and focus of mine,” she said. “I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do.” Asked if the repeated rumors had hurt her, she paused and then reiterated the “media world is speculating.” “Yeah, it’s not always pleasant, of course,” she said. “But I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he “stepped over the line several times” with women. In an interview released Tuesday in Men’s Health, the actor and former Republican governor of California said he was the “first one to say sorry.” Schwarzenegger said he now feels bad about it and has apologized. Schwarzenegger was accused of sexual misconduct when he ran for governor in 2003 and he denied the allegations. He said that’s why there were sexual harassment courses when he became governor to make sure no one, including himself, made that mistake. Schwarzenegger also said calling political opponents “girlie men” was shortsighted even though he improvised it at the time.
Lindsey Buckingham is suing Fleetwood Mac for kicking him off the band’s new tour. In the suit, the guitarist and songwriter is seeking his share of the tour because he says he still wants and is able to perform. The suit names bandmates Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie and John McVie. Buckingham claims he was told five days after the group appeared at Radio City Music
Hall in January that the band would tour without him. The tour began Oct. 3, with Mike Campbell and Neil Finn replacing Buckingham.
