Miami Springs Reporter Shares Wife in Sex Scandal, Judge Bans Him From Beat (NSFW)

Straight out of the romance novel section of Barnes & Noble, no?
Wally Clark swears it was a million-dollar idea. The bespectacled man with big ears, a bald head, and a trim figure scrolls through the 10,000 pornographic snapshots he took of his wife cavorting with his best friend. Sure, Clark had nudged the two of them together — but it was only supposed to be so they could all get rich peddling erotic images. His wife and his buddy weren't supposed to run off together.

On a recent Thursday, inside a one-bedroom bachelor pad cluttered with papers, the six-foot-two Hialeah High graduate is revisiting what he calls the happiest five years of his life. A photography studio occupies a back room, and a flame-painted PT Cruiser sits in the driveway. "My wife was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen," he says with a wistful glint in his paralyzed left eye, "until she became a professional liar."

The 73-year-old purports to be in the business of truth. Flip through a copy of the River Cities Gazette, Miami Springs' free community paper for the past 33 years, and you'll see stories about a local farmers' market, a spectacular car wreck, and a boutique sale. They're all written by Clark, a 25-year veteran of the paper, who produces a good half of its content. But unless Clark can dig his way out of Miami-Dade's most bizarre sex scandal involving a journalist, his job is doomed. Two restraining orders prevent him from covering the majority of his town. Clark usually reports on burglaries and stickups, but he can't visit the police station lobby anymore. The newspaper office is also off-limits.

Technically, Clark doesn't need to go to the police station that often. Miami Springs -- a 2.9-square-mile triangle between Hialeah and Miami International Airport -- boasts a violent crime rate that's less than half the national average. The 14,000-resident suburban city reported only four murders between 1999 and 2011. It's practically a modern-day Mayberry, and Clark is one of the most influential people to call the place home.

"Even though we're online and connected to the Herald, everybody loves to get their newspaper every Wednesday," says Bill Daley, the Gazette's editor. "It's unique in the age of social media because people here still like to read their local paper and see what's going on."

Clark met his now ex-wife while teaching a Harley-Davidson riding class in late 2006, when he was 66. Dana Estabrook, a 20-year-old former bodybuilder and personal trainer, was the youngest student in his 12-person class. "I thought I didn't have a chance," Clark admits. After a couple of lessons, though, the older man invited his pupil over to take sexy photographs on his motorcycle. She accepted, and the two slept together during their second shoot, he says. Estabrook moved into Clark's Wren Avenue home the following March, and they married two years later in a Savannah, Georgia gazebo.

Lets see she did not want to be with a poor sick old man who has to get someone else to hit it, wow who woulda thunk it?. Also she is marginal at best, hot for a 67 year old, but marginal!

It's all Wally Clark's fault. Dude: Let. It. Go. She left you for another.

This is nothing new and it's mild by comparison. Remember Broward County Sheriff`s Deputy Jeffrey Willets arrest and conviction for pimping his wife, Kathy, to just about every politician in South Florida? They even videotaped her with clients, including the former vice mayor of Fort Lauderdale!

How was she a stripper with that horrible case of NASSATALL?

The real math is, he was 66, she was 20. Sorry, but you'd be a fool to think that lasts longer than a song or few at the bar she tried to strip at. How long does Hugh Heffner keep them, and he's playboy wealthy.
