Left in Paris, Mrs Sarko puts on a frosty front
Daily Mail ^ | 10:04 PM on 12th March 2010 | David Wilkes

Arms crossed defensively and her face fixed in a frown, Carla Bruni cut a sombre figure in Paris yesterday. France's first lady had plenty to think about amid growing talk that both she and her husband Nicolas Sarkozy are having affairs. The 43-year-old had been left behind in the capital while the French president made an official visit to London. He appeared delighted to be away from the rumour mill and seemed almost ecstatic on meeting Gordon Brown in Downing Street.

The 55-year-old is said to be romancing his ecology minister Chantal Jouanno, a karate champion who is his junior by 15 years.

Miss Bruni is said to be involved with musician Benjamin Biolay, 37.

The allegations, which surfaced on the internet, are roundly denied.

I suppose this is better than watching Nancy’s eyebrows twitch while she is fibbing.

Nah, just mainly open to individual interpretation.

According to the French magazine L’Express, the rumour began as a hoax by a French trainee journalist. He wanted to see how easy it was to get an unverified assertion from the chat website Twitter on to random blogs and into the mainstream media. If so, he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. The Carla and Sarko “rumours” have appeared in newspapers in Britain and Italy and websites in the United States.

If it comes to a fight between Chantal Jouanno and Carla Bruni, Carla had better run...Jouanno was the French champion 12 times. Of course, being France, that may just mean she didn’t run!

Not that Minister Jouanno is unattractive, she’s not, but...I wouldn’t make that trade.

Well, I would never make the trade for the woman I was married to... But Chantal for Carla, straight up, no rings involved, I would go with Chantal. Matter of preference, I guess...

One consideration, Chantal is French. You know how that ends up all to often. Carla is Italian. Frosty French, or Incendiary Italian. You chose.

What does Sarkozy and the Tiger have in common? It seems both enjoy rough sex.

Congratulation will you be naming the bundle of joy a name that doesn’t sound like a girls name on this side of the pond?

A blue belt? I've heard of white belt, brown belt, and black belt, but that's a new one on me. OK, I looked it up, and found this at Wiki: "Japanese practitioners and purists tend to look down on the use of blue jūdōgi." It's been several dogs' ages since I did judo, but my instructor was Japanese, so I guess he was a purist.

I have a blue belt in karate — I stopped when the sparring started and after I had broken my toe in some move or other. It is two belts below a black belt, in our dojo.

Very good. I guess it’s either a later development or something my Japanese instructor didn’t talk about.

I hope she realized it was there and had it checked out, best to be on the safe side.

The Brits in the comment section beneath the pictures in the article, do not seem impressed by Sarkozy. Blew my mind to see those “high heels” he wears.

Looks quite a bit like the L-Word actress Leisha Hailey.

A short cute BMW commercial she did for comparison.

It seems more and more likely that whole "affair" thing was a Twitter prank that got out of hand.


Sarko and Carla, smiling and hand in hand, voting early this morning in the French Regional Elections.
