'The Good Wife' vs. Anthony Weiner's Wife

NEED TO KNOW
  • Amazing parallels between the TV’s 'The Good Wife' and wife of NYC Mayoral Candidate Anthony Weiner
  • What are the burning questions we want to know about Huma Abedin?

On the CBS show “The Good Wife” Julianna Margulies’ character stands by her cheating husband even after he goes to jail for a sex scandal. She eventually proves to be more important to her husband’s political career than both of them even realize. Will that prove to be the same story for Anthony Weiner and his wife? How does Huma’s life and career stack up against her fictional ‘sister in scandal’?
