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.
