Special report: political decorating


I can't tell you how much I am loving the Anthony Weiner news story/meltdown. Honestly.

There is a minor decorating angle to all of this, too. (Lucky for us.)

From Gawker:
But a source familiar with the couple's plans confirmed that they had been trying to conceive their first child in recent months. And about 11 weeks ago they put their two-bedroom Queens apartment up for sale—which, as you can see in the photos on the right, features incredibly sad his-and-hers monogrammed pillows—indicating that they recently learned they'd be needing more space.

I also enjoyed this photo of the Weiner doing god-knows-what next to 2009's commemorative ikat pillow.



Poor Huma. Seriously. She probably deserves a better husband. But as glamorous as she is, she definitely deserves a better apartment.



Let this be a lesson to little girls everywhere:
1) There is no money in politics.
2) Be worried if your man shaves his junk. Seriously.

Nothing good is happening in that bed.

I am snort-laughing at your political decorating... Worried, but laughing.

LOL. Nice post. A laugh is always appreciated! =)

Oh how do I love thee Decorno, let me count the ways....

This is just priceless. Clearly all of Congressman Weiner's engergy is spent not on decorating, but on Twitter.

A man should never photograph his "privates." In the olden days, you would send your film to the drugstore and they would develop it and they would call the Police if they saw a man's "part."

I do not appreciate what that man did. He sent his personal body parts through the email to a young lady. Did she ask him for that?

She must have had her feelings hurt.

Maybe she is a whore. But still. Anyone can see the Internet! Children!! Nuns. The Twitter needs some kind of security guards to watch for these organs and what-not.

Poor Huma is right. But to be fair, I don't think she is that glamorous. Beautiful & gorgeous, yes, but in those photos CNN keeps playing she is wearing a terrible red cableknit sweater that may or may not have cats embroidered on it.

Me again.

With over 40 years experience in this industry I've worked for politicians, moguls, teamsters. mostly through referrals - not the Tweet!

If Sinatra were alive today would he stoop to this behavior? No. Ava Gardner, yes. But she had It and Weiner doesn't so DON'T flaunt it, ANTHONY...

Without Larry King and Regis Philbin I worry the kids have no role models any more. LeBron James is not a real name!!!

I'm embarrassed to say my experience is limited. I've been married a long time. Do you all have any opinions about the size of the Member of Congress? Is any one impressed? Is there anything to brag about there? Looks ordinary to me. Shaved did you say? What a jerk he is.

Sad apartment for grown-ups but a lot of space (relatively) for an ordinary apartment in NYC.

Penns - your best comments...ever. I could follow every sentence. Funny. Thanks.

HA. AH. Ah-ha! Haha. They should have bought a set of four pillows.

Sorry Penny but can you come up with some better names than Regis Philbin and Larry King...please? L

Penny are you "drunk" posting??

Do they have an apartment in DC, though? If Huma is mainly in DC with Hillary, then she may have made a much nicer place there.

I lived in NYC for 6 years, so I understand small ... but I expected bigger from the congressman...on all fronts...

This apartment is really the saddest part of this whole story. Who knew that "prominent" people live this way.

As for his shenanigans, I really don't care. Clearly he is an idiot, but I don't believe he did anything illegal. Politically, he is on my side of the issues and he does a good job representing my interests. I mean I don't LOVE him or anything, but enough already with the "everyone is supposed to be a role model and a saint morally and socially" business." It's not true ... never was and never will be. Get over it.

I thought of all the long, lonely nights Congressman Weiner spent in that apartment with nothing but his cats and those tragic H & A pillows, while Huma breezed around the world with Hillary Clinton.

You really can't blame the man for taking pictures of his junk and Tweeting them all over the place.

cats said...

In fairness to Huma and the decorating, she must be constantly on the road with Hillary. I'm going to say she had her priorities straight. To young girls everywhere: this is exactly why you shouldn't give up your job to be a homemaker right after you get married.

Joey Brill said...

I saw the pictures of his junk and thought them a clever ruse to throw the scent off teh gay. Even after I heard news he spooged his wife, I thought he was gay.

After seeing this flat pack apartment, I now know Anthony is straight, straight, straight. I don't see one piece of furniture that didn't require an allan wrench.

That is not how they lived. That's how the realtor staged it, for the listing.

Jill said...

I think I would change the throw pillows on the bed...looks like the jokes one her, sadly.

With an apartment like that you should not be allowed to run for any office - how could you possibly imagine a better world!

i am so fucking over this whole sexless sex scandal crap! if you're gonna cheat, fuck someone for God's sake, and drag on a cigarette afterwards - preferably on a hot afternoon when you're supposed to be somewhere else! do it right, don't cheapen it w/tech shit.

*jumps off soapbox to look for a matchbox*

He NEVER touched another woman, NEVER hired a hooker, He NEVER beat, shot or stole a penny. He's guilty of having a sexual imagination that his wife was neither able or interesting in participating in. She knew what he was into BEFORE she said I do. She should have signed up for a twitter account.

She on the other hand picked out that furniture. I wonder how she's going to like being a single mother in Queens?

tree said...

No way they really live there. It's just to keep an address in the district. Hence the "see? we really live here!" monogrammed pillows. HA indeed!

Anonymous said...

I like him.

He may not have physically cheated, but he did lie. That's the kicker. If he had owned up to this immediately I think it would have been way less of a scandal and wouldn't have needed to resign.

Sorry, I disagree, nothing wrong with a little grooming. A little.

Decorno, you just keep getting better.

Love,

A Jewish mommy who is so grateful she has a daughter because if she had a son, he would end up a Weiner for sure!
