Google CEO Eric Schmidt must have been laughing at Anthony Weiner. "What an amateur," he probably thought.
As we all know, Weiner is once again facing the repercussions of his actions after more of his online sexcapades have been publicized.
Fortunately for Schmidt, he is much more clever than the mayoral candidate. Instead of foolishly posting explicit images of himself on social media sites, it has been discovered that he has outfitted a 6,250-square-foot duplex with top-of-the-line soundproofing gear in order to ensure no one can hear his exploits. So much for privacy! I am personally tired of hearing about how important public figures do not know how to remain faithful to their spouses, but nonetheless, this is by far the most outrageous plan.
The penthouse apartment, which was featured in Oliver Stone's movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps was purposefully chosen, according to the New York Post, to ensure that the public would not get a glimpse of Schmidt's affairs. Oops.
Unlike the average New York apartment building, Schmidt, who is worth an estimated $8.2 billion, insisted that he not have a doorman and that he use a separate, private elevator. The purchase was made, according to the Daily Mail, so that Schmidt could have a place closer to the two women he has been seeing; Lisa Shields, an executive on the Council on Foreign Relations, and Vietnamese pianist Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen.
His wife, Wendy, supposedly accepts the open marriage.

Schmidt also reportedly had a 3-year love affair with TV personality Kate Bohner. This information has recently come out because a friend of Ms. Bohner believes "that it is ironic that someone like him can be so free and easy discussing other people’s privacy issues online while using his vast wealth to protect his own image."
Needless to say, Schmidt wins the prize for most expensive trip to home plate.
