(Newser) – The “awkward” and icy marital status of shamed former governor Eliot Spitzer and wife Silda was on display last week in the Big Apple as they “made only two seconds of eye contact during dinner” with another couple, a spy told the New York Post.

While Silda was away from the table, “a woman came over to him and said she did her law thesis based on his work and how great it was." Spitzer replied, "Nobody will care. It doesn't matter. But tell it to my wife." When the stranger did so “Silda was unmoved. It was awkward.”
