Sunglasses and a headscarf provide the only disguise for the woman the celebrity magazine calls "the most famous female spy in America".

Just two months ago Mr Wilson said his wife had authorised him to say that she would "rather chop off her right hand than say anything to the press and she will not allow herself to be photographed".

Was the Jaquar paid for with a perq. from Prince Sandar?

What a pair of slimeballs from the clintonista mold.
