    Father Alberto Cutié wasn't exactly covert while frollicking with his girlfriend on the Beach, but Miami's randy reverend nevertheless thinks his undoing may have been aided by foreign spies.

      The hanky panky priest taped an interview that appeared on Univisión's "Aqui y Ahora" last night, where he said he felt he was being followed and spied on, possibly by Cuban secret agents.
       
    "I knew that during some time I was being followed," Cutié said, according to the Miami Herald. 'I think that being Cuban American, we have that paranoia that perhaps it could be someone from another government, from another place. . . . I had experiences at Radio Paz of seeing strange cars when I would leave work late or arrive early. I would see things and I would say, `I wonder who would be following me?'"

    His neuroticism aside, Cutié admits that he didn't do much to hide his beach blanket bingo, even after he and his lady friend noticed they were being taped.
     
    "I look and I see the camera," Cutié said. 'My first reaction was, 'What can I do? It's already happened.' My first reaction was to stay calm."

    Cutié said the photographer, a heavyset woman, fled the scene when she realized Cutié saw her. He said he has no idea who she is.

    Despite rumors that the paparazzo was peddling the pics to the highest bidder throughout Miami, Cutié said he was never contacted about them.

    "Nobody talked to me about it," he said.

    Cutié said he met his girlfriend, alleged to be 35-year-old divorced single mother Ruhama Canellis, 10 years ago in church and that he immediately felt a "strong connection" to her.

    "She is a good woman, a simple woman, a humble woman," Cutié said. "But what attracts me most, besides that I think she is physically beautiful, is her faith. . . . I think she has the same passion that I have for Jesus."
