A woman has claimed that a restaurant review in the Washington Post exposed her husband's affair, and no one's sure if it's true.

During a live online chat with restaurant critic Tom Sietsema, the anonymous poster wrote: "Well Tom your latest review is accompanied by a picture of my husband dining with a woman who isn't me!"

The woman went on to write: "Once confronted with photographic evidence, he confessed to having an ongoing affair. Just thought you'd be amused to hear of your part in the drama."

Mr Sietsema, who seemed unnerved by the confession, asked if this was a wind-up. No one's sure which review, or indeed which picture, may have prompted the alleged outing of the affair.

Many have been combing through the critic's online reviews, but so far, no one's come up with the incriminating picture.
