Enquirer: Was Al Gore cheating on Tipper?

Last week, Al and Tipper Gore announced their separation after forty years of marriage. Many of our first thoughts were along the lines of “I bet he cheated.” And then, “Oh, maybe she cheated.” Of course we’re bad, horrible people who think the worst. But you know what? According to the Enquirer, Tipper was thinking the same stuff. The Enquirer’s sources claim that Tipper “allowed herself to suspect the worse” about Al, although, “there’s never been proof that Al had affairs.” So Tipper would get crazy jealous, and Al had enough, and HE dumped HER. One source says: “I think she’s always believed there was something going on between Al and many of the women in his life.” These mysterious women who get hot for robots? An environmentalist in the Clinton cabinet when Gore was veep, a “sexy Hollywood actress,” a message therapist, a cheerleader (really?) and Al’s first girlfriend. Let’s break it down (all of this comes from the Enquirer, by the way:

*The high-school sweetheart, named Donna. Donna is dead now. But she gave an interview in 2000 and she talked about how Tipper was a jealous bitch… in 1970, when Al introduced Tipper to Donna, Tipper wouldn’t acknowledge her. Boring. And the woman is dead!

*The Cabinet member, “Environmental Advisor” Kathleen McGinty. There were rumors about Al and Kathleen in 1995, but the Enquirer claims that they investigated at the time and “the two had a strictly professional relationship.” My guess? Bubba probably boned her, but Al didn’t hit it.

*The message therapist, name unknown. Circa 2000, there were rumors about Al having a “fling” with his massage therapist. The source says: “Tipper knew that Al had a daily massage, and she was always jealous of the therapists… he mostly had female masseuses, but Tipper became so vocal about the women that Al switched to male therapists to keep the peace.” Verdict? Hand-jobs, probably.

*The “sultry screen star,” name unknown. Why do I think it’s Leo DiCaprio? Anyway, circa 2001, there was a “whispering campaign” about it. Tipper confronted him about Leo (or whoever) but Al denied it. The source says: “By this time, Tipper’s jealousy was putting stress on their marriage.” My take: Al & Leo 4 Eva.

*The cheerleader, name unknown, but identified as “a gorgeous 23 year-old Tennessee Titans cheerleader.” Once again, this sounds more like Bubba’s type, right? Maybe Al was just being a good wingman, a bro, and covering for his buddy. Anyway, the cheerleader was allegedly the last girl that Tipper went into a “jealous rage” about.

That’s about it. The rest of the article is just about money and how much Tipper could get in the divorce. The Enquirer tries to list Al’s assets, but they make a hash out of it, and now I can’t really tell. My own guess is that Al is worth something like $200-250 million, but that’s the number the Enquirer is using for Tipper’s possible payday. Eh. Who knows?

    That cheerleader was 230 years old?!? Enquirer should get to reporting on that not the alleged affairs.

  2. e.non says:

    ya gotta love the way it’s done in this country — why bother to assassinate a country’s leaders, when mockery and lies are so easily and willfully spread and guzzled down by a debased media culture.

  3. Dorothy says:

    i still doubt it!

  4. mojoman says:

    “… Cabinet member, “Environmental Advisor” Kathleen McGinty. My guess? Bubba probably boned her, but Al didn’t hit it”..
    ROTFL!! the best version ever! and oh, the cheerleader is 230 years old? that should be the REASON of them divorcing 🙂

  5. Kate says:

    Of course the Enquirer was 100% accurate when it came to John Edwards, so I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss.

    The only other thing I would add is since when did it matter that the guy has a personality of a wet mop? Hello, 7 different women have married Larry King. You don’t think it is because of his good looks and witty charm do you? Spittle is oh so sexy….when millions of dollars are attached to it.

  6. Eden says:

    Anyone else heard the rumor that is supposedly well known that Al Gore is hung like a horse..?
    Powerful man = lot of opportunity and lot of opportunists..
    Maybe Tipper and Al had an “understanding” after all their years together to allow for some side action and one of them wants to jump ship and set up a life with someone else.

  7. Whatever says:

    BS all of it.

  8. Leticia says:

    I think that all of his passion is devoted to trying to save the planet. But I cannot understand why he lives in a house over 20,000 square feet, which seems wasteful for just two adults with grown kids.

  9. LindaR says:

    He kisses like an old man. All awkward and pursed lippy. I’d leave him just for that!

  10. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Oh yeah, Al Gore is above being a scum bag, like the rest of society! Uh huh! *eyeroll*

  11. Marjalane says:

    It’s all about his money, baby! I’ve heard some interesting theories that Tipper wanted out and wanted her cash before Al started getting sued for all the bogus global warming stuff. It’s coming-

  12. Samantha says:

    40 years is a long time to just throw in the towel…I’m hoping its over something serious, like a body being buried in the backyard.

  13. Jo says:

    Hi, I think he is handsome but I heard he was fooling around with Cheryl Crow.. who is a big supporter of his.

  14. Tess says:


    Net worth between $200 and $250 millon?

    Global warming junk science has been berry berry good for Rev. Al’s bank account.

  15. Eileen Yover says:

    He’d better get a “lockbox” for all that dough!

  16. Tia C says:

    I don’t buy any of that. It’s whipped-up fluff.

  17. Kiska says:

    Al Gore does not ooze an ounce of sexuality. If anyone was going to cheat, I could see it being Tipper

  18. Sally G says:

    Getting sued for “all the bogus global warming stuff”…bwahahahahaha. How ignorant…better stop listening to Glenn Beck.

  19. guesty says:

    always gotten the switch-hitter vibe from ole al…dky.

  20. The Bobster says:

    Yes, the latest rumor is that he cheated on Tipper…..with a guy.


  21. Anj says:

    He is a fucking cheating bastard and she is a crazy woman.

  22. Hautie says:

    It does not always have to be about cheating. Sometimes it is just you want to live a different life now. No need to stay in a marriage and end up bitter.

    As sad as it is… you do grow apart.

    You develop different interest and different friends the older you get.

    I have seen numerous of my friends parents divorce later in life and it was as simple as them just being different people at 60 than they were at 20.

    And having a still crazy jealous wife over 60 years old would be nerve grating.

    Plus Tipper has always been that holy than thou female placing her extreme judgment on others. I am old enough to recall all the crazy she oozed through out the 80’s through mid 1990’s.

  23. Carrie says:

    I love that thought that all of these women can be explained by “Gore being a wingman for Bubba”- classic!

  24. Mingo says:

    Maybe it was just that Tipper couldn’t tolerate never being First Lady and blamed Al. More likely actually.

  25. snowball says:

    My small evil mind is prone to assign guilt by association. I figured since Bubba was getting hummbers and beejes in the office, it wasn’t really outside the realm of possibility that if Al and Tipper were rarely even in the same state that he’d get a happy ending to one of his massages now and then.

    Or maybe at the end of one of his global warming conferences, his little globes would find themselves getting warmed with someone’s mouth (I totally, totally saw Sheryl Crowe too).

    He may not have been screwing someone, but please, even a robot like Al might have done something if a screaming shrew like Tipper was practically giving him permission by accusing him of it day and night.

  26. greta says:

    Al is fabulously rich through his father’s long association with Occidental (Russian) petroleum guy, Armand Hammer. Also, the guy has kept gay rumors at bay for a long long time. He was surrounded by a little coterie of mafiaesque types, probably gays, when in politics. Hadn’t heard that he is going to be sued because of his junk science theories such as low flow toilets (still think of him with every double flush) and then the power play of all power plays “global warming”. Which the best, least dependent on gov. money scientists declaimed all along as hogwash. Didn’t know the truth was creeping into his back pocket but he and Tipper deserve to lose every penny for all the losses caused by the rest of us, including standard of living, little unsafe cars, ugly florescent bulbs, every little detail of our lives that government now rules over! That is the underbelly of him, much more significant than sex partners and divorce!
