Lu Parker, KTLA-TV Channel 5 reporter, is dating Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Her fans will know that she has also won the Miss USA title. The officials of the news station where Parker is working have confirmed on Monday (1st June) that Parker has been dating Villaraigosa since March.

Over the weekend the couple was spotted spending their time leisurely at the Larchmont bookstore. According to the NBC Channel 4 story, “Witnesses say they did not hold hands or kiss, but appeared very chummy. Parker was seen touching the mayor’s chest and stomach while they spoke. She was also seen looking at a book about Kenya and overheard saying to Villaraigosa, ‘We should buy it for our trip’.”

In order to keep her professional records clean, Parker has already told her superiors at the KTLA that she and Mayor Villaraigosa are dating. Commenting on the relationship, Jason Bell, the news director at KTLA-TV said, “Now that we’re aware of the relationship, she will no longer be covering local politics. I have the utmost faith in Lu Parker’s abilities.”

Two years earlier, Mayor Villaraigosa had had a similar kind of extramarital affair with one of the local newscaster, which unfortunately led to the breakup of his twenty years of marriage.

Apart from winning the Miss USA title in 1994, Lu Parker has also won an Emmy Award for her journalistic works. She joined KTLA in January 2005 from KENS-TV (CBS affiliate) in San Antonio, Texas. At KENS-TV Parker used to host the entertainment program “Great Day S.A.,” which she apparently helped to create also.
