Lisan Goines is the girlfriend and mistress of CBS News’ 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft. This according to the National Enquirer, and photos of the woman in question are much in demand. You can see them here and get the details of the scandal of the married veteran broadcast journalist said to have been involved with a gorgeous New York City lawyer for three years and who later admitted to the affair.
It’s a story that seemed to come from no where all of a sudden of an affair between the 69-year-old Steve Kroft and the considerably younger 41-year-old Lisan Goines. But as we know the National Enquirer has over the years scored some real zingers when it comes to exposing extramarital affairs of prominent men. The saga of former Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate John Edwards comes to mind.
This being an old school tabloid, the details are lurid — from imaginatively explicit text messages to Viagra and more. A three-year affair that was not tepid, let’s say and there are many intricate details of how it began in 2011 after Kroft saw her and approached her at a bar at the St. Regis hotel, and how it was Goines who broke it off after three yaers as Page Six reports.
This we can’t just off hand dismiss the Enquirer even as we might think to ourselves, say it ain’t so. Well, one thing is for certain, Steve Kroft himself isn’t exactly saying it ain’t so. Yes, rather than denying the accounts or ignoring, has instead issued a statement to Page Six which confirms the veracity of the story of an affair, at least, while not directly saying Goines was the woman in question.
He said, “I had an extramarital affair that was a serious lapse of personal judgment and extremely hurtful to my wife and family, and for that I have nothing but regret.” He continued, saying, My wife and I are committed to each other and are working hard to get past this, and consider it a private matter.” He is married to a fellow journalist, 55-year-old Jennet Conant and the couple has one son together.
The details of Lisan Goines’ biography are not difficult to find, as a quick Google search confirms her employment as a lawyer; she is a partner at Duval & Stachenfeld LLP and is in the firm’s Transactional Department and the Real Estate Practice Group. She earned her law degree at Columbia University Law School and has an undergrad degree from Harvard. As one delves, one can find out plenty about her distinguished professional background.
She also has a Facebook account (here) which, as of this writing, has not been deleted although little is publicly visible other than a few photos. It’s not every day that one goes from being a private citizen to being blazon on the cover of National Enquirer. It’s not an aspiration of most people either. Yet at the same time one courts such infamy in having an affair with a public figure.
