Rupert Murdoch, chairman and chief executive officer of News Corp., left, and his wife Wendi Deng arrive for the morning session at the Allen & Co. Media and Technology Conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, U.S., on Thursday, July 12, 2012. Media moguls gathered at the annual Allen & Co. conference have spent recent years contemplating how to cope with technology companies drawing audiences away from television and movies.
To historys greatest love letters Henry VIII, Frida Kahlo, Napoleon add Wendi Dengs note to herself about a fantasy of a man, as reported in the new issue of Vanity Fair. Oh, shit, oh, shit, she allegedly wrote, in broken English, before her divorce from Rupert Murdoch last year. Whatever why Im so so missing Tony. Because he is so so charming and his clothes are so good. He has such good body and he has really really good legs Butt ... And he is slim tall and good skin. Pierce blue eyes which I love. Love his eyes. Also I love his power on the stage ... and what else and what else and what else ... Tony with the butt? Yes, thats former British prime minister Tony Blair.
The rumors arent new, but the details are. Last summer, amid the blockbuster news of the split between the 82-year-old media mogul and his ride-or-die wife a few decades younger, a rep for Blair denied, in the present tense, that anything was going on between the British politician and Deng: If you are asking if they are having an affair, the answer is no.
But their friendship was well documented, with Murdoch biographer Michael Wolff all but winking, a year before the split, Blair becomes one of Wendi's first official social conquests, in her developing role both as Murdoch social emissary and social power player. Wendi Murdoch becomes a curious wrinkle in the power equation a way for Blair to see himself as having control of Murdoch, of joining with Wendi to handle him. Blair also happens to be the godfather of Grace, one of Rupert and Wendis young daughters.
Now, post multi-million dollar divorce settlement, Vanity Fair is making things very Downton Abbey. It all started with the backstairs rumblings of servants, according to the story. Wendi and Tony were reportedly spotted at the Murdoch cattle ranch in Carmel, California, sans poor Rupe.
Of course, whispers of Dengs extramarital activities were also common as she grew into her own social force. I had thought they had come to an arrangement and were happy with it, one News Corp. executive said upon news of the divorce. But according to a Vanity Fair source, her affairs started to multiply and be amplified over the last year. In particular, the two relationships that have been commented on [in the press]: Eric Schmidt [the executive chairman of Google] and Tony Blair. (In a joint statement, Wendi and Rupert said, Given the complicated dynamics of our family, we made the decision early on in this process not to engage in public allegations or respond to negative claims.)
Complicated dynamics is right: This good dirt about the highest rungs of world power also happens to involve a man who gladly spends his fortune on awesomely depraved tabloids, and is known to have a hand in all of it. I find that in hearing rumors about what went on with Wendy and Rupert, theres a sort of double-agent phenomena where people will say Rupert was the victim and she was allegedly cheating on him, and someone else will say, Well, Rupert himself is spreading that rumor to make himself look like the victim so that he wont have to give her as much. And that she is the victim of Ruperts smear, longtime gossip columnist George Rush told Daily Intelligencer last year. So, its sort of like that final scene in The Lady From Shanghai with the mirrors.
Errr...not sure I want to read that one!
Well, I can see why Blair would be attracted to such an eloquent woman.
Sheesh! Just another reminder that one can be rich as all get out and not have one bit of class.
Yikes! Dragon Lady. I’m sure Rupert had his Pre-Nups in order before catching that one.
She actually cleans up a lot better than that.
My favorite line about Tony Blair is from the movie The Queen, when the Queen Mother says:
"That RIDICULOUS Mr. Blair with his SILLY Cheshire cat grin"
Is "Mr. Blair" still married? His wife reminded me of Hillary Clinton, a real shrew.
He is still married to Cherie Blair.
