Shawn Hubler, has a cover story on the sadder-but-wiser Mirthala Salinas in Los Angeles magazine. Salinas regrets the affair with the Mayor, which happened due to the stress of her mother’s death, and is now engaged to mortgage broker Yanni Raz, who’s a change from her usual brand of politically connected beaus.

Mirthala might be a charmer, but boy, is she a dull interview:

“What can I say?” Mirthala Salinas asks, smiling. “I’m a romantic.”

Hubler is observant, and just a tiny bit acid:

She wears pale lip gloss and a little mascara, which will run later when she cries.

To be honest, Cory Kennedy, whom Hubler profiled a while back, sounds like a lot more fun.
