Karyn Anjali is a longtime social and celebrity columnist for Tampa area high society magazine Panache Vue. She said she frequents many military functions as well as the celebrity affairs in the area. She told CNN she'd never heard of Kelley.
"I have no idea who she is. I have handled all the major events in this town for a long time now, and I am a little surprised I don't know her," Anjali said. "A lot of us go to the same places, the same restaurants for lunch, the same parties, the same functions. I myself am quite well-known, and I do not know her."
So far the only member of Kelley's family who has spoken to reporters is her brother David Khawam.
"My sister got anonymous e-mails," he told CNN affiliate KYW Philadelphia. "Because of her stature and her position, she was scared. She filed a complaint with the local authorities, and that trickled down to everything that's going on right now."
Kelley is a "dedicated mother, a dedicated wife," her brother added.
After that initial interview with the affiliate, Khawam refused to talk further and referred all media inquiries to Judy Smith, Washington's top scandal spinner who is said to have inspired the new television drama "Scandal."
Jill Kelley has retained Smith and top Washington lawyer Abbe Lowell, famous for representing clients such as disgraced former Sen. John Edwards and ex-lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
Regardless of who is talking, the scandal involving Kelley is growing by the hour.
The Pentagon said Tuesday that the investigation surrounding Petraeus and Broadwell has expanded to include Allen. Allen replaced Petraeus after he left that post to lead the CIA.
According to U.S. officials, the FBI has discovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents --- most of them emails --- that have "potentially inappropriate" correspondence between Kelley and Allen.
Some of the emails between Allen and Kelley might be described as "flirtatious," according to a defense official who was cleared to speak to the media.
However, the official told CNN that flirtatious could mean anything from "Hey, you look good in that dress the other night" to something more serious.
"There was no security information exchanged. There was nothing hateful in the messages," the official said. "It was not threatening."
