Anthony Weiner says there's one woman in his life he's going to have trouble convincing he's "cured"—his wife's boss, Hillary Clinton. The former congressman says he's in therapy for sex addiction, but getting Clinton's approval could be more difficult than being forgiven by his pregnant wife, Huma, reports the New York Post.

"My problem is that I have three women I have to convince that I'm cured," Weiner told a friend. "Huma, her mother—and Hillary." There's no word on what type of treatment Weiner is in or where he's receiving it, but he was spotted recently at Orlando International Airport—which is near an outpatient rehab center for sex addiction. "From the little counseling he had so far, he realized that it cost him and he did really, really crazy things," says the source. "He understood his wires are crossed."
