Telemundo's KVEA-TV Los Angeles has placed Mirthala Salinas on leave in the wake of reports that the news anchor has been romantically involved for at least a year with married (though not for much longer) L.A. mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. "Given the seriousness of the allegations that have been made, we have decided to conduct an internal review of [the events] that led us to where we are today," KVEA's general manager says in a statement to Variety. Salinas, who just last month herself reported on the mayor's separation from his wife of 20 years, says, "I am confident that when all the facts are analyzed, it will be clear that I conducted myself in an appropriate way."
