Sydney Leathers showed up at Anthony Weiner's concession party on Sept. 10 in New York. According to Fox News, the 23-year-old who was having a sexting relationship with the politician figured she should attend the party -- since she was part of the reason Weiner lost.
"Why not be here? I'm kind of the reason he's losing. So, might as well show up," Leathers told reporters. The one person who was notably absent? Weiner's wife, Huma. And that's a good thing because she spared herself some embarrassment and shame (like she needs any more of that).
Sydney Leathers took a couple of jabs at Weiner, saying that he would never change his ways and that he shouldn't be the face of New York because of his actions. "He's going to continue this behavior. If it's not going to be me, it's going to be some other girl," Leathers said.
Of course she was faced with quite a few negative comments herself but she just held her head high and basked in the fact that people actually knew who she was. Since she was identified as one of Weiner's side dishes, she has launched a porn career. Perhaps appearing at Weiner's expense is going to give her a boost -- so it's no wonder that she showed up.
Will Sydney Leathers go away quietly or will she stick around in the limelight? Do you think she's still having relations with Anthony Weiner?
