Condi owned
home, shared credit line with another woman

A new book claims that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice once owned a home and shared a credit line with another woman. Author Glenn Kessler, a Washington Post diplomatic correspondent, spilled the details to Michelangelo Signorile on his Sirius satellite radio show Friday, according to the Web site Raw Story.

Kessler discovered through real estate records that Rice owned the home with female documentary filmmaker Randy Bean. Bean is quoted in the book, The Confidante: Condoleezza Rice and the Creation of the Bush Legacy, as saying that Rice cosigned a credit line for her when medical costs drained her finances. Rice owned the house with Bean and gay Stanford professor Coit Blacker, who eventually sold his share to them.

According to Raw Story, Kessler told Signorile that he did not know whether Rice and Bean's relationship extended beyond friendship. Kessler noted that older single women like Rice have been scrutinized with regard to their sexual orientation. The secretive official's private life has been talked about since she was thrust into the international spotlight as national security adviser to President George W. Bush during his first term. She then assumed Colin Powell's seat as secretary of state in 2005. (The Advocate)
