Renata Ford, She has been called a quiet introvert, a ghost and even the invisible wife, but this week Renata Ford, the slight and silent significant other of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, appeared in the public spotlight for the first time since he was elected three years ago.
On an early morning this week, Toronto mayor entered city hall and shocked the world by describing in graphic detail a sexual act he allegedly performs on his wife and only his wife.
Faced with fresh claims from a released police document of drug use and drunken carousing, Rob Ford dug his teeth into one specific allegation – that he had made sexual advances to a former female staff member.
“It says I wanted to eat her p*ssy and I have never in my life said that to her. I would never do that. I’m happily married. I’ve got more than enough to eat at home,” Rob Ford said to the shock of everyone from city councillors and veteran city hall reporters to late-night television hosts.
At home, of course, is wife Renata Ford, a notoriously private character in the Ford saga. She has not been seen at a significant public event since Election Night 2010 celebrations, but she was at city hall on Thursday.
