The former governor and current talk radio show host and Michelle Paige Paterson have made the "mutual and amicable" decision to split after nineteen years together. As you might recall, the couple has been open about their history of extramarital affairs, though Paterson's representative was unsurprisingly unwilling to elaborate on the reasons for the breakup. Meanwhile, "spies" working on behalf of the New York Post report that Paterson has recently been spotted being "charming and flirtatious" with ladies around town.
