'Good Wife' star empathizes with Weiner's spouse

Posted: Updated:

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Julianna Margulies says playing a wronged political wife on TV gives her compassion for what Anthony Weiner's spouse is going through.

Watching Huma Abedin stand by New York mayoral candidate Weiner at a recent news conference reminded Margulies of how she played a similar scene in "The Good Wife" pilot.

Marguilies says she feels empathy for Abedin because people are quick to judge and comment.

But "The Good Wife" star said sexting scandals like that involving Weiner are the gift that keeps on giving for the CBS drama, keeping the show fresh.

It's a reaction that makes her feel slightly guilty, Margulies told the Television Critics Association on Monday.

"The Good Wife" starts its fifth season Sept. 29 on CBS.

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.
