Lara Logan was a swimsuit model while attending college (see photos below). The 37-year-old CBS correspondent and former model is now making news for apparently having an affair with a married man, Joe Burkett, a civilian contractor at the U.S. embassy in Iraq, while simultaneously courting another reporter, Michael Ware. This resulted in a brawl between the two suitors while they were still embedded in Baghdad.
Born in South Africa, Lara Logan was the only U.S. journalist in Baghdad when the city was captured by U.S. forces. Following that journalistic coup, she went on to report for "60 Minutes" and was only recently promoted to chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News. She is currently undergoing divorce proceedings from her husband, Jason Siemon, a retired basketball player, but is entangled in yet another divorce trial. Burkett's wife claims that she is trying to steal her 3-year-old daughter after breaking up her marriage.
As a result of her stint as a swimsuit model, Lara Logan is referred to in British tabloids as "34D Lara." Does she deserve the moniker? Certainly, CBS hasn't been shy in exploiting her colorful past, noting that, during her trip to Pakistan to interview Pervez Musharraf, "her suitcase with bikinis and other beachwear made it to Islamabad; the suitcase with the rest of her clothes did not."
