LA MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA: LOVE TRIANGLE?
Antonio Villaraigosa’s romantic exposure in Chevalier’s bookstore
with TV reporter Lu Parker
has many people in LA confused – because he’s been keeping steady company for at least the past year with ANOTHER Latina beauty – Mara Granderson
. Mara, our spies tell us, is NOT a reporter, she is a businesswoman – specifically a real estate agent/investor. She and Antonio have been seen side by side at numerous events – most recently they worked the room together at Nancy Davis’s Race to Erase MS
charity dinner on May 9. Although they’ve appeared countless times in public and in photos together, this steady “undercover” romance wasn’t publicized. The mayor and Mara were perceived by social and political friends to be an “ideal couple” destined for a future together. But something happened in the past few weeks and they parted ways. Was the Chevalier incident a ploy by Antonio to get Mara’s attention? Stay tuned. (The photo above was taken at a charity event at the Peninsula Hotel
in November – Mara is standing between the Mayor and celebrity stylist George Blodwell.
Note where the Mayor’s hand is.)
