with former president Bill Clinton: a blonde bombshell,
who resembles Hillary. Wednesday night, the mystery

So who is the mystery woman? And what's she really
doing with the former president? Only "Extra"
has the answers.
New York Daily News columnist Ben Widdicombe told us
the woman, Belinda Stronach, is a billionaire member
of Canada's Conservative Party, and she's very possibly
a future candidate for prime minister of Canada.
"She's blonde, she's ambitious and she's
in politics, but she's not Bill Clinton's wife,"
Widdicombe said. "It's Belinda Stronach,
his friend from Canada who's been visiting Bill
in New York this week."
"She gives money to his pet projects and
in return, he supports her projects, for instance,
a children's hospital in Canada," Widdicombe
Stronach and her father donated money to Clinton's
presidential library, and she nearly became an
investor in his friend, JFK Jr.'s, George magazine,
meeting with him just a week before his death.
And Belinda is no stranger to the limelight either.
She's divorced from Olympic champion speed skater
Johan Olaf Lass and currently has romantic ties
to another politician: Canadian Brian MacKay.
Still, there have been rumors of a romance between
Belinda and Bill since they met five years ago
at a charity event.
"Anytime Bill Clinton is seen with a beautiful
blonde, there's going to be rumors," Widdicombe
insisted. "But in this case, they really
are just friends."
And there's more good news for Bill watchers too:
his good behavior is carrying over to his diet.
While Jack, Jerry and the rest of the party dined
on steak at BLT Wednesday night, Bill feasted
on a healthier meal of swordfish and white asparagus.
