In sickness and health, sure, but nobody said anything about when your husband gets caught trying to pick up women on Craigslist with the worst frat-astic cell-phone pic ever. Nevertheless, Michele Lee is "crushed," but standing by former Rep. Chris Lee, who a friend says "was supposed to be her prince charming." The Lees have holed up in Chris Lee's father's multi-million-dollar Florida estate, and Michele is "hoping to work things out," a source tells the New York Post.

Meanwhile, Gawker catches up with the would-be Craigslist lover who caused the whole ruckus, and she has a little unsought advice for Michele Lee: "Go get tested. My theory is, you don't get caught your first time out." She also tells Gawker she didn't think Lee would have to resign "over a few pictures and a few emails," and that she found out he'd quit while on a Craigslist date. "It went OK. We had beer and sandwiches. My date was actually from New York. He thought the whole thing was hilarious." (More Christopher Lee stories.)
