Ashleymadison.com, a website specializing in promoting marital infidelity recently offered rescued Chilean miner Yonni Barrios $100,000 to become their new spokesman.

Barrios first gained attention when it was discovered that both his wife, Marta Salinas and his mistress,Susana Valenzuela were camped outside the collapsed mine awaiting his release.

Ashleymadison.com is a site that provides online dating services for married people seeking extramarital affairs. “To date our Spanish language service has been a tremendous success in the United States. Since its launch over 17 percent of new members are Spanish speaking,” added the site’s President, Noel Biderman.

The only caveat for Barrios would be that the site insists he would have to remain married to his current wife. That may be easier said than done. Yonni's wife of 28 years was (obviously) livid when she found out about his ladies on the side and refused to greet her husband when he was rescued from the mine last week.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
