Chris Hansen Caught Having an Affair

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ting-wife.html

He's made his name with a controversial show that catches would-be internet sex perverts in televised stings.
But now Chris Hansen has found himself on the receiving end of his own hidden camera tactics, after the married NBC anchor was secretly filmed on an illicit date with a blonde television reporter 20 years his junior.
Hansen, 51, has allegedly been having an affair with Kristyn Caddell, a 30-year-old Florida journalist, for the last four months.

Affair: Married NBC anchor Chris Hansen is allegedly having an affair with Florida television reporter Kristyn Caddell, who is more than 20 years his junior

Last weekend he was recorded taking Miss Caddell on a romantic dinner at the exclusive Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manalapan, before spending the night at her Palm Beach apartment.
Hansen, who has two young sons, was caught in an undercover sting operation arranged by the National Enquirer.

Secret cameras filmed the couple as they arrived at the hotel for dinner and then drove back to her apartment - where the pair left, carrying luggage, at 8am the following day.
Hansen lives in Connecticut with his wife Mary, 53, but he has been spending more and more time in South Florida investigating the disappearance of James 'Jimmy T' Trindade - and allegedly sleeping with Miss Caddell.
'Betrayal': Chris Hansen with his wife, Mary. The couple have two sons together. He has allegedly been cheating on her for the last four months
A source told the newspaper the pair met in March, when they were both out with friends at the Blue Martini Lounge in Palm Beach.
Miss Caddell, who was once an intern with NBC in New York, introduced herself to Hansen in the VIP area, and 'there was an immediate physical attraction between them', according to the source.
The source alleged: 'Chris and Kristyn got on so well that she ended up going back to his room at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach - and later boasted to pals about staying the night with him.'
The couple have allegedly continued to meet up in Miami and Palm Beach over the last few months, with Miss Caddell and her friends even flying to New York to spend a weekend boating with Hansen, the Enquirer reports.
Embarrassing sting: Chris Hansen, pictured on Dateline's To Catch a Predator, has allegedly been caught having an affair with a blonde TV reporter
Liaison: Chris Hansen has allegedly been having a four-month affair with Florida TV reporter Kristyn Caddell, who is 20 years his junior

According to the source: 'Chris sends Kristyn flowers and tells her he loves her, but he still doesn't seem all that motivated to leave his wife for her.
'He's telling her he loves his wife too, but they've grown apart over the years, and she's not sure what he should do.'
Hansen has worked for NBC for two decades, but became famous with his controversial Dateline series To Catch a Predator.
The show's producers work with online watchdog Perverted-Justice, whose volunteers pose as underage girls offering sex on the internet.
But when they arrive to meet the girls, they find themselves confronted by Hansen, his film crew and sometimes the police.
First date: The Blue Martini lounge in Palm Beach, where Hansen first met Miss Caddell in March. She reportedly introduced herself while he was in the VIP area
The Enquirer's sting took place last weekend, and recorded the pair as they went for dinner at the Ritz-Carlton's Angle restaurant on Friday at about 7pm.

Miss Caddell was dressed up in high heels and a short, revealing dress, and according to the source they spent much of the evening staring into each other's eyes.
They left at 9.15pm, and went for a drive along the ocean front, before being filmed filling up Miss Caddell's Jeep at a nearby gas station.
Then they drove to a liquor store, and Hansen emerged clutching a bag full of bottles. The couple returned to Miss Caddell's apartment at 10pm.
At 8am on Saturday, they, with Hansen pulling luggage behind him, and she drove him to the airport.
A source told the Enquirer: 'They were both wearing different clothes from the night before... Kristyn's hair was dishevelled as if she'd just rolled out of bed.'

This would be news if she were under 18.

Too bad he wasn't caught on Cheaters. Now that would make for some interesting tv.

Wouldn't believe it if it was on the front page of the national enquirer and not believing this NE report either.

Now the paparazzi are tailing television reporters? You think they'd show a little guild courtesy.

Re: Chris Hansen Caught Having an Affair

I'm sure at one point in time she was, in fact, 30 years old. That time was likely around 10 years ago.

That said--nice pull, Chris.

Re: Chris Hansen Caught Having an Affair

Personally, I think this is great. Catching predators is definitely a good thing. But when you are really just about exposing people in stings to get good ratings and the crime is secondary (as I believe it is with Hansen), I find it enjoyable that he gets a little taste of his own medicine. He has done nothing illegal, but cops that use pepper spray have to be sprayed with pepper spray. They have to know what the effects are for what they use. They get tazed if they use tazers. Chris Hansen just got a taste of what a sting feels like.

Re: Chris Hansen Caught Having an Affair

But when the paparazzi embarrass the host of a tabloid TV show, isn't that biting the hand that feeds you? He ought to be immune to scurrilous reporting.

Only if he's asked to sit down and forced interviewed on the presumption that the person talking to you is a law enforcement. And then having the footage broadcast nation wide for strictly entertainment purpose then maybe it's similar to tasting his own medicine. So far it has only been like, your wife caught you doing her anally and she told you no ice cream tomorrow.

I don't think that this is real. It sounds more like some "lady" trying to get money/fame by lying about someone from tv.
