Well get Dr. Phil on the line. Bill and Nadia are reportedly trying to reconcile.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, California State Treasurer Bill Lockyer is no longer seeking a divorce from his estranged wife, former Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, who has recently completed a drug rehabilitation program.

The news comes a year after a car accident and highly publicized fight with a lover revealed Nadia Lockyer's extramarital affair, drug and alcohol addiction and rumored sex tape. Nadia Lockyer resigned from the Board of Supervisors in April and was arrested on drug charges later that summer. Bill Lockyer filed for divorce in July, citing irreconcilable differences.
