The latest on California politics and government

Newsomwife.JPGJennifer Siebel Newsom, the pregnant wife of 2010 gubernatorial candidate and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, stars in a new sex-romantic comedy that's already making a splash with its racy preview.

FoxNews headlines it: "First Lady of San Francisco bares all in raunchy sex scene.''

"It is going to cause quite a stir as people aren't used to seeing a political figure like this," director Gene Rhee is quoted saying. "But I just hope people judge her (Jennifer) for her amazing performance not for her political associations."

Siebel Newsom is quoted talking about filming intimate scenes in "The Trouble with Romance."

"It's always a little awkward, but I'm a dancer and an athlete so I have a more tomboy figure so I just went for it. The film was a challenge, but fun."

As for her role in a risque film while being the wife of a mayor and a candidate for governor (made before they met), she said, "Gavin jokes ... and teases me and says he'll have to approve all scripts from now on."

The movie is being released "on demand" and has a limited theater release this Friday.

The YouTube preview, at least, is already a hit -- with 50,000 page views and climbing.
