CNBC’s Deutsch Caught In Affair With Hedge Fund Manager’s Wife

Dec 11 2008 | 1:11pm ET

It seems that Donny Deutsch, whose CNBC show “The Big Idea” was put on hiatus last week, has found solace in the arms of a hedge fund managers’ wife. The advertising mogul has been having an affair with Lisa Sandler, the wife of hedge fund manager Andrew Sandler, according to the New York Posts’ Page Six.

According to the tabloid, Andrew Sandler—son of Sandler Capital Management founder Harvey Sandler—hired a private detective a few weeks ago, suspecting that his wife was being unfaithful. The dick managed to get pictures of Lisa Sandler kissing Deutsch.

Andrew Sandler filed for divorce last week, reportedly naming Deutsch as the third party.

Deutsch, who was divorced from his ex-wife in 2005 and whose ex-girlfriend gave birth to his daughter last year, saw his show shelved by CNBC, which is making cutbacks, earlier this month. The Big Idea’s ratings have reportedly been going south for some time, although Deutsch is expected to remain with CNBC, possibly hosting a once-a-month show.
