Skating Scandal: Lloyd & Kristy's Affair

Last spring, Skating with Celebrities star Lloyd Eisler and his wife, Marcia, were happily anticipating the arrival of their second child, with observers describing them as "such a great couple."
That was then. Now Eisler, the former World Champion pairs skater, is with Kristy Swanson, the actress he partnered with on FOX's Skating with Celebrities.
As reported in PEOPLE's new issue, the 42-year-old Eisler – currently separated from the mother of his two children (Seth, 10 weeks, and older brother Ethan, 21 months) – is now openly dating the former Playboy playmate, 36, best known for starring in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Says their Skating competitor Bruce Jenner, who saw them at a recent press event: "They seem to be very happy."
According to one source on the set of the show (which premiered in January but taped in the fall), the pair's away-from-the-rink relationship was an open secret: "Everyone knew there was something going on. It was obvious they were together."
Well, not to everyone. "I just noticed that they got really good (at skating)," Jenner tells PEOPLE. "I never knew anything until I saw it on the news."
As for Marcia, 31, who visited the L.A. set last fall, she "felt a vibe that things weren't normal," says a friend of Eisler's. Still, Marcia's suspicions weren't confirmed until, she claimed, Swanson forwarded her an e-mail that Eisler had sent her. (Neither Swanson nor Eisler will comment on either the e-mail or their relationship except to say that Eisler's marriage was over before he started seeing Swanson.)
Marcia confronted her husband, and on Nov. 5, Eisler moved out of his and Marcia's home in tiny Bath, Ont. (population 1,000), to an apartment in Kingston, 15 miles away. "We became officially separated Nov. 30," says Marcia, who gave birth to Seth two weeks later.
Although the couple have yet to get a divorce, she's already gone back to her maiden name, Marcia O'Brien, and she's also changed the children's last names to hers.

I wonder if he had informed his wife of this fact. She seemed to know nothing about it.(Neither Swanson nor Eisler will comment on either the e-mail or their relationship except to say that Eisler's marriage was over before he started seeing Swanson.)
Sorry, I still think he's a sleaze. And Kristy is no better. End one thing before you begin another!
It was me. I let the dogs out.
Well this would certainly explain why they have had better chemistry lately.
I'm still glad they are in the finals. Jillian B. started out with a huge advantage over Kristy because she had been ice skating for many years. I am very impressed with how far Kristy and Lloyd have come as a team, especially Kristy's improvement, after they almost got eliminated in the first round.
Also Jillian has a long history of being a smart-mouth beyotch! He he.
Wow, I stopped watching this show/lost interest until someone I knew mentioned the news of Lloyd's affair this weekend in conversation. I thought no way this could be true, so I came here to check, and I'm quite stunned and dismayed.
But like someone else mentioned, the timing of this news breaking is awfully convenient! What a handy reminder to tune into the finale. FOX couldn't have asked for better publicity...or did they? [ paranoid]

I have a question in regard to Lloyd's children. I know I've read recent articles from his (soon-to-be) ex wife and she indicated that she had went back to her maiden name and that she had changed the children's last name to her maiden name. My question is....does the father of the children have to sign something indicating they are "allowing" the children's last names to be changed or is that something she can go to her attorney and have him file at the courthouse without the fathers acknowledgment or approval??? I don't know why that has been bugging me but it has.......
