How is it that famous people have affairs and don't think they'll eventually be caught?
Steve Kroft, of 60 Minutes fame, was carrying on with his mistress Lisan Goines in September 2011, and he was terrified that he'd be found out. Not only because he's been married to journalist Jennet Conant for 23 years, but also because he was "really paranoid about right-wing zealots," according to a source close to Goines.
Did we mention that Goines is a Harvard-educated real-estate and corporate lawyer?

Well, apparently, Kroft and Goines met at the Park Hyatt on 24th and M streets in DC during that September, and Kroft told her "dress in Washington is Either professional or Laura Bush," and added, "Don't dress like Beyoncé."
Apparently, this wasn't a diss, Kroft just didn't want to be found out, and that's why he never went in public with her either, "because she's black — because they'd be more noticeable," the source said.
The fact that Kroft had an affair isn't the new news. What's come out now is the leaking of MORE dirrrrty sexts between the two! And of course, the Bey remarks.
