Larry Mendte and Alycia Lane Offer Very Different Views of Their Relationship as Lawsuit Continues

It’s a classic case of He Said, She Said in the lawsuit involving former KYW anchors Larry Mendte and Alycia Lane.

In new details from the case published today by the New York Post, the two veteran anchors characterize their much-publicized tryst very differently.

In the court proceedings, Mendte, who now works as a contributer for New York’s WPIX, described having a passionate relationship with Lane in which she would text him the numbers “1-4-3,” code for “I love you,” during their newscasts, and the two could hardly keep their hands off each other outside of work.

Lane, on the other hand, has provided a much different description of their interactions, even going so far as to call Mendte “a sociopathic narcissist.” On one occasion, according to Lane, Mendte gave her a toy frog dressed as a prince because “he knew I didn’t find him attractive.” Lane’s reaction to the gift? “I tossed [it] out promptly because [it] creeped me out.”
