The Heavy Make-Out Sessions of V. Plame, CIA Agent

In previous posts such as this one I've discussed other aspects of the Plame-Wilson affair, but I just noticed that the January 2001 Vanity Fair article has some evidence on the honest of Valerie Plame herself. Early in the article it says,
On the third or fourth date, he says, they were in the middle of a "heavy make-out" session when she said she had something to tell him. She was very conflicted and very nervous, thinking of everything that had gone into getting her to that point, such as money and training.

She was, she explained, undercover in the C.I.A. "It did nothing to dampen my ardor," he says. "My only question was: Is your name really Valerie?"

Later in the article it says, in commenting on Novak's column that said Plame worked for the CIA:
Plame herself thought instantly that the leak was illegal. Even members of her family did not know what she did.

I see an inconsistency. Plame meets a consultant at a party at the Turkish embassy, falls for him immediately (see the rest of the article), and tells him about her job on the fourth date. But she doesn't tell "members of her own family", and she is appalled when a journalist somehow finds out and says she works for the CIA. Maybe if the journalist had gotten his information from a "heavy make-out" session instead, she wouldn't have been so upset.
