YOUR 15 MINUTES: This Is What Happens When Only Hot Women Are on The News

A Chicago television reporter, Amy Jacobson, left her job after she was caught on video in a swimsuit at the home of a man whose wife is missing. Amy was assigned to the story. Scandal!

Jacobson's attorney, Kathleen Zellner, said she was concerned the media would distort the contents of the tape. "She wasn't fired. There was no drinking. No one was sitting in a hot tub. She wasn't anywhere near him (Craig Stebic)," Zellner said. "(Stebic's) sister invited her to drop by." Jacobson was assigned to cover the disappearance of Stebic's wife, Lisa, who still lived with her husband while the two went through a divorce. No one has been charged in the case, which has generated high interest here since the young mother of two disappeared April 30. Stebic's husband was the last person to see her, but police have said he is not a suspect in the disappearance. On the day she disappeared, Lisa Stebic had mailed off a petition seeking to remove her husband from the home. In the divorce case, she accused him of being "unnecessarily relentless, cruel, inconsiderate, domineering and verbally abusive." Jacobson, leaves behind a staff that includes Marion Brooks, who had to testify last year about her four-year relationship with former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell that began when she was an anchor in that city.

The moral of the story: stay away from house of a guy who has an "estranged" wife who happen to be "missing" especially when you're a good-looking reporter who is assigned to the story and especially especially if you're in a halter bikini top. Meanwhile, in related news-scandal news:

In Los Angeles, at Spanish-language Telemundo station KVEA-TV—newscaster Mirthala Salinas was only placed on a leave of absence from her duties earlier this month pending review after it was revealed she had been having an affair with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who separated in June from his wife of 20 years. Salinas has covered the mayor, including the news of his separation.
