(Source) This time he had to answer the tough questions. Veteran “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft has come clean about a steamy affair with a New York City lawyer, a fiery three-year fling that included hot hotel hookups and torrid text messages. “I had an extramarital affair that was a serious lapse of personal judgment and extremely hurtful to my wife and family, and for that I have nothing but regret,” Kroft said in a statement to the Post. “My wife and I are committed to each other and are working hard to get past this, and consider it a private matter.”
It’s a story you won’t see on “60 Minutes.”Kroft was getting his kink on with the aid of Viagra and racy text messages — including one in which he told his lover he “would rather be eating your pudding,” according to a new report from the National Enquirer, which hits newsstands Wednesday. The married CBS newsman — who once famously confronted Bill Clinton over the then-Arkansas governor’s rumored womanizing — convinced Harvard-educated Lisan Goines that he was trapped in a sexless marriage with his wife, author and fellow journalist Jennet Conant, the Enquirer reports.
The pair then launched into a three-year affair — the details of which would never get past the censors on Kroft’s own award-winning show. In one sexting session, Kroft allegedly cooed to Goines, “Miss you and all that goes with it. Especially my favorite tastes and colors … pink and brown.” Another time, the 69-year-old newsman asked Goines, 41, “What exactly would be your preference,” the Enquirer reported.
“U all over and deep inside of me,” Goines responded. At one point, the hard-working TV journalist, who has a son with Conant, lamented his long hours on the job, the report said. “Working late. Just ordered out. Would rather be eating your pudding,” he allegedly wrote. “Don’t work too hard this week bc I wanna wear you out afterward,” Goines replied. “You got it,” Kroft responded, according to the Enquirer.
The newsman — who boasted to Goines that he was the “go-to’’ interviewer for President Obama — had some particularly unusual tastes in bed, the mag said. One time, he was “pouring champagne in her behind and drinking the bubbly,” the report claims. Kroft first spotted Goines in 2011 at a bar in the swanky St. Regis hotel and sauntered over to chat, according to the Enquirer. “Steve quickly told Lisan, ‘I have to see you again,’ ” a source told the magazine. Apparently, the line worked.“A few weeks later, he arranged to meet her at another hotel for cocktails,” the source said. “After the drinks, he handed her a room key and told her it was the only way he ‘could be alone’ with her.
How about Steve Kroft??? Did not see this one coming. 60 minutes is the show that haunts your dreams every Sunday night when you’re at your absolute worst, scared of the work week, hungover and near death. Like the adults coming to crash the party, scare you with the “real world”, lecture you about the Economic Rebuilding of South Korea and the landmines in Darfur. Basically the exact opposite of tasting pink and brown and pouring champagne in bitches assholes. Sort of love this though. Just an old dude trying to get his freak on. I’m sure the world will call him a pervert and an asshole (which I guess he is for the whole cheating on his wife thing) but some times a guy needs to eat a little pudding. Sorry for having a dick I guess? Do you Steve Kroft, 60 minutes will never be the same. Just kidding, it will be exactly the same because I never actually watch it, just freak the fuck out the second the clock starts ticking and go cry under my bed.
Kind of hate the whole part where everyone is blasting Steve Kroft for interviewing Bill Clinton and then getting caught in a similar situation 20 years later. Yeah it’s hypocritical but it’s also 20 years. Who knows where you’ll be in 20 years. That’s a long ass time. Just because you don’t drink champagne out of a chick’s anus today doesn’t mean you won’t tomorrow, you know?
