"One time we were having sex, and I was looking up at the ceiling, thinking about, ‘What am I going to buy at the grocery store tomorrow?'" Ginger White tells the Daily Beast, not at all sounding like someone who is exhausted and humiliated by the media circuit. That quote, which the Daily Beast describes as signifying the "emotional toll" of White's affair with Cain, is part of Leslie Benetts's five-page (ok, so they're Internet pages) interview with the former Republican contender's confirmed 13-year "friend" with alleged benefits. White's almost-tell-all with The Beast caps a busy week where she complained to George Stephanopoulos about the relentless media prodding and being "absolutely humiliated and embarrassed" in the process. It also follows her appearance on Lawrence O'Donnell's MSNBC show apologizing to Gloria Cain and her children.
Of course today's interview also comes on the heels of Cain suspending his candidacy this weekend. “Herman said, 'I will help with the rent, I will help with food, but it’s not my responsibility to get your kids through college—and you may have to get rid of your dog.'" White tells The Daily Beast that she knew the relationship had gone chilly when Cain would only agree to help her if she got rid of her Yorkshire terrier. (She lied and did not get rid of it.) She also updates Bennetts on her finances (they're not in good shape), her financial help from Cain (it's stopped) and her privacy (which she says is gone). Though, you'd think that someone who laments her lack of privacy, perhaps might want to, you know, stop booking interviews with national news outlets where she reveals embarrassingly intimate details about an already well-publicized alleged affair.
