Silda Spitzer is privately telling friends she plans to divorce her hooker-loving husband, Eliot Spitzer, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
Multiple sources tell us long-suffering Silda — who, he last night admitted, will not be joining him on the campaign trail — “has had enough” and plans to start divorce proceedings after his run for New York City comptroller is over.
One source tells us, “Silda is telling her female friends that she is done with him. She will file for divorce after the [Nov. 5] election.”
A second source told The Post’s Sally Goldenberg, “Silda is saying she is going to wait until this is all over. She has been telling friends, ‘This is too hard. This is too rough.’ ”
Page Six exclusively revealed in May that the Spitzers were living apart, with Eliot staying at 800 Fifth Ave. — less than 20 blocks from the home he shared with Silda at 985 Fifth.
While his rep has insisted they are “still a couple,” Eliot last night admitted Silda will not be seen at his side, reports The Post’s Beth DeFalco. Spitzer said, at a Bronx campaign stop, “I think it’s fair to say I’m running for office. No other member of my family is running for office.
And I think the public is going to judge me, not who else is with me or not with me. She’s got a career. There are other things I think the public appreciates — I’m out here fighting every day for them.”
Asked about the divorce rumors, Spitzer spokeswoman Lisa Linden told us last night, “Eliot is running for comptroller on his record and the issues. We will not comment on the absurd barrage of stories about his personal life.”
It is not believed that Silda has yet hired divorce lawyers.
A very private person, Silda has never commented on Eliot’s patronizing of prostitutes or their marriage. But multiple sources say she is unhappy with his decision to reenter politics, thrusting their relationship back into the public spotlight. She did not respond last night to an e-mail requesting comment.
