L.A. Mayor Villaraigosa

SQUIRMS

Over Charlie Sheen Encounter

EXCLUSIVE

010913_major_villagrossa_launch
For a guy who earned the nickname Mayor Suave, Antonio Villaraigosa was anything BUT smooth when we asked him about the ongoing Charlie Sheen drama yesterday ... in fact, AV's response is downright laughable.

Villaraigosa was in L.A. for an event with philanthropist Eli Broad when we asked about Charlie Sheen's recent claim -- that he and the mayor partied together in Mexico for HOURS.

Of course, AV has been in media "spin mode" ever since a photo emerged of the two -- with Villaraigosa claiming he simply posed for a pic with Sheen during a harmless 3 minute encounter ... and nothing more.

Sheen called BS (and later apologized for calling BS, but never took back his story).

But when we asked about Sheen's claims yesterday ... the Mayor tried to change the topic in the most awkward way possible ... and then tried to mock the situation.

It's so shameless, you can't help but laugh.

He's squirming because he's guilty as charged. For once, I totally believe Charlie's version of events.

Kris Jenner and Kim K = money hungry plastic sellouts.    

this guy is an idiot!!!!!not smart at all, and this guy was elected mayor?? Ive always thought he was an idiot. the way he talks is ugly and his spanish is even worse. Just because he's hispanic doesn't mean he knows how to speak english correctly. He should work on that if he's gonna be Mayor.

LIAR!

Look into the face of the illegal/anchor baby problem and how it has destroyed L.A. and CA.

Squirm? Absolutely! A liar can not continually lie without getting caught up in it and then caught; There are just too many different stories to remember But remember this as well

This was the character at the Democratic convention that didn't hear the loud and adamant "NO's to their platform; he did what he wanted
So with the consistency of him, what else did you expect. but we did find out something else "he can drink with the best of them" Ahhhh, for role models once again

He gets elected with the illegal/anchor baby demographic. Glad I left CA years ago.

Mayor Vivalaraza knows how to mug for the cameras. That is his job as he understands it. You just smile and hug whatever man happens to be hanging around. I am kind of wondering if he and Charlie had a little affair down there that he is trying to cover up.


First people were mad at Charlie for calling people ***gots and then they are mad at this guy for being arm and arm with him. Three and a Half Men always seemed to have a gay twist undercurrent to it. Maybe the players aren't ready to come out of the closet.

No story here. Why would he bother giving a response to a stupid question about Charlie Sheen? I believe he has more important things to do.
