Rob Morrison's alleged mistress Jennifer Rainville steps out on the town
The alleged mistress of disgraced newsman Rob Morrison was spotted glamming it up Saturday with friends at Oscar’s Brasserie in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Donning chic riding boots and skinny jeans, former WNBC employee Jennifer Rainville refused to answer questions about reports that Morrison’s shattered spouse Ashley Morrison was taping his extramarital affairs.
Rainville brushed off reporters as she exited her posh Upper East side apartment and headed for her brunch at the Waldorf. “As a former journalist I completely respect and understand, but I’m not going to have anything to say,” said Rainville, who was joined by four friends.
After an hour-long meal, Rainville’s group jumped in a white SUV and sped off from the Park Ave. hotel, with Rainville clutching a shopping bag from the luxury skin-care company Mario Badsecu.
Meanwhile, Rob and Ashley Morrison maintained their silence, ignoring phone calls and emails with questions about the angry anchorman’s troubled relationships and violent temper.
Rob Morrison, 44, was arrested early Feb. 17 on charges he tried to choke his wife during a fight at their posh Connecticut home, in which his nose was fractured.
Morrison resigned from his $300,000-a-year anchor job at WCBS on Wednesday. The former journalist has denied that he was trying to strangle his wife.
