Billboards expose Oracle executive's affair

Reporting from San Francisco - A prominent Silicon Valley executive with ties to the Obama administration has admitted to an extramarital affair after his former mistress plastered romantic pictures of the two of them on giant billboards in three major cities.

"I had an 8½-year serious relationship with YaVaughnie Wilkins," said Charles E. Phillips, co-president of Oracle Corp. and a member of President Obama's Economic Recovery Advisory Board. "The relationship with Ms. Wilkins has since ended, and we both wish each other well."

Wilkins, a writer and actress, this week had a three-story-tall sign put up near Times Square in New York with a photo of Wilkins and Phillips hugging and beaming. The sign also quoted Phillips saying to Wilkins: "You are my soul mate forever."

A high-tech executive's affair would not usually capture public attention. But the eye-popping way in which this affair was revealed did. The billboards were first noted by the Gawker blog and then turned up in the New York Post, which began the story with the line: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned -- and then there's this lady."

Billboards that appeared in Atlanta and San Francisco have been taken down. Wilkins, who lives in the Bay Area, could not be reached for comment.

Somehow we should care about a slut who had an affair with a married man?

Didn’t you read the article?

She’s not just a slut.

She’s also a “writer” and an “actor.”

And Stein thought the WWI generation was a “Lost Generation.” I think she overestimated her “genius” by several dozen IQ points.

Actually, there were two sluts involved, and one of them (the guy slut) was married.

Purely in the interests of historical accuracy.

I find it rather amusing that the billboard is placed over a Sushi Bar.

Yes, since it is yet another creep President Obama has appointed and could possibly have been blackmailed. Obama is surrounding himself with a sideshow. And imagine if this creep had been a G.W. Bush adviser, it would have been 24/7 on Cable news networks.

If she can pay for all those billboards, she’s a well paid slut!

I wonder if she did this after he refused to pay her even more to keep quiet. Serves him right.

******

Seems kind of sad to me.

I read that the mistress spent up to $150,000 for the billboards.

Haiti: Maybe the mistress could have put the $150,000 to better use by contributing all that money to the Haiti relief fund.

Sad situation and wrong use of all that money, in my opinion.

He missed it in the rulebook where it clearly says NEVER to have an affair with someone by that name...

It’s 150,000 Britsh pounds so that makes it more like $241,710 USD at currnet rates. That aside it would be ironic if she used his credit card :~)

Where did she get that money? Does she have an Obama TARP credit card? Something does not add up.

I have been seeing some very weird stuff. I saw a women and her friend pull up to a habitat for humanity stores dress shabbily and looking totally clueless in a brand new $110,000 Mercedes sports car. I have seen other things like that as well. Did Obama through ACORN hand out TARP credit cards to ACORN members. I am not kidding.
