Neal Schon of Journey is speaking out about his affair with Michaele Salahi.

Us Weekly is reporting, they consider their romance to be a modern day fairytale.

"I'm very happy, very happy after waiting for her for 15 years," Schon, 57, told the Daily Beast in an interview published Monday. "Now I want to get beyond all this media hype that [Michaele's estranged husband] Tareq has put out there. It's really quite embarrassing."

Oh please! Give me a break!

I wonder if Neal has heard the latest? Looks like TMZ has found some picture of Michaele back stage with Steven Tyler a few years back. The pictures are pretty harmless, but the story goes on to say that Michaele and her husband Tareq had gone to an Aerosmith concert without backstage passes. She gets backstage and returns about an hour later with an all-access backstage pass for all of Aerosmith's concerts.

This story is getting better than a Jerry Springer Show!
