You know this whole Al Gore massage thing was going to go away quietly. Probably. Maybe. Now, though, it has been given fresh life, and it is all thanks to Tipper Gore. From her we now know that Al Gore did get a massage that night from that woman. To me, this adds a lot of credibility to what she has said, even if she has taken money for her story.
A Tipper spokesperson told People, "Tipper has known about these allegations since Al found out about them himself. She has known that massage has been very much a part of his health regimen for many, many, many years. She doesn't believe any of the allegations that this woman [Hagerty] is making, and they played no role whatsoever in their decision to separate." With that sentence about massage, we now know she is admitting to him being there, and it sounds like Al could have been getting frisky with massage people for a long time too.
If she wanted to help her soon to be ex-husband, this does not really seem the way to do it. I don't think Elizabeth Edwards believed all the things about John Edwards at first, either. Look how that turned out.
