Charles Phillips, the co-president of Oracle Corporation, got some unwanted press last week when giant billboards popped up in New York’s Times Square, San Francisco and Atlanta displaying photos of the executive with YaVaughnie Wilkins, the woman with whom he had an eight-year affair.
The billboards included quotes from Phillips to Wilkins, including “You are my soul mate forever” and a web site with photos and videos of the two together. The web site, which has since been taken down, was commissioned by Wilkins as a present to Phillips, reports Business Week. Images from the site were preserved by Gawker.
Phillips has since issued a statement acknowledging the eight-year relationship with Wilkins, which has since ended. His wife, Karen, began divorce proceedings in 2008, though it’s been speculated that the couple was heading toward a reconciliation.
Phillips sits on the boards of Viacom and Morgan Stanley, as well as President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board. None of the companies affiliated with Phillips have commented on the developments.

When Congress gets back to business in the New Year, one of its priorities will be consideration of the Bush administration’s request for a massive arms sale - in the neighborhood of $20 billion - to Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states.
Israel and Egypt also stand to gain billions more in U.S. weapons as part of the package Congress will review.
The proposed deal is controversial because of the Saudi component. Given the Saudi government’s questionable record on fighting terrorism and curtailing terrorism financing, its funding of extremist wahabbist mosques, its supply of foreign fighters into Iraq and a judicial system that recently ordered 200 lashes for a rape victim, some in Congress don’t believe the kingdom should be rewarded with top-of-the-line American weaponry.
