"I couldn’t have a better adviser,” Rudy Giuliani gushed about his wife, Judith Nathan, on ABC's 20/20. He would encourage Nathan, a registered nurse and the third Mrs. Giuliani, to sit in on the occasional cabinet meeting and consult on policy in his administration, the GOP frontrunner told Barbara Walters.

Giuliani denied that his relationship with Nathan broke up his previous marriage to Donna Hanover, or that his new wife is responsible for his estrangement from his son Andrew. But he couldn't resist invoking 9/11 to sanctify the marriage: "Nobody will ever know all the things she did to get me and the city through Sept. 11." (More Rudy Giuliani stories.)
