Silvio Berlusconi Announces Engagement To A 27-Year-Old (50 years his junior)
Business Insider ^ | 12/17/2012 | The Telegraph

Posted on 12/17/2012 12:17:00 PM PST by SeekAndFind

Silvio Berlusconi sought to draw a line under his "bunga bunga" parties when he announced he was engaged to his girlfriend 50 years his junior, who makes him feel "less lonely."

In a wide-ranging interview aired on the talk show "Domenica Live" on his Canale 5 TV network, the 76-year-old billionaire said he was engaged to Francesca Pascale, his 27-year old girlfriend.

"Finally I feel less lonely," Mr Berlusconi said. "I am engaged to a Neapolitan, it's official.

"She is 27 years old, with very solid values, beautiful on the outside and even more beautiful on the inside. "She is very close to me, she loves me very much and I feel the same. My daughter Marina appreciates her and loves her very much too."

Those crazy Italians! She’s young enough to be his grand daughter. But hey, if they truly love each other, good for them.

If they’re both on board with this, I’d say it’s their business.

Looks like one of my ex-girlfriends, in fact. And that look? High-maintenance.

Better have a few extra zeros in the account. Silvio will need them.

He's got them, so who cares?

That's a great point! With that plan, he doesn't have to put up with the bitchin' the next day........And if it's true love he wants then he should get a dog.

RE: Better have a few extra zeros in the account. Silvio will need them.

From this site:

http://www.therichest.org/celebnetworth/politician/minister/silvio-berlusconi-net-worth/

Silvio Berlusconi has a net worth of $5.9 billion as of March 2012, according to FORBES.

And he’s 77 years old. She doesn’t have to wait too long to be a billionaire all by herself.

Even if my sweet wife of 40 years passed away, and a girl that good-looking and age came my way, I think she’d be too immature and vain.

And after my money instead of me.

Not good ingredients for a real marriage. Sex? Sure. But not a marriage. And could you keep her satisfied? How high are the odds that she’ll be sleeping around on you - and/or leaving?

Hmmm...would that be “Scavatrice d’oro”, in Neapolitan?

She’s-a not-a guilty.

Too bad Berlusconi’s not in office anymore. Once these two get married, could you imagine if he came over here to a state dinner? We’ve seen the Death Look that the First Wookie gave Carla Bruni...this would be 10x worse.

They are marrying for love. Believe me it has nothing to do with the fact that he is a billionaire. Lol.

Bingo! I used to laugh watching the People’s Court when the proverbial parade of older guys would be the plaintiff and have that “deer in the headlights look” when they found out that their young hottie girlfriends took them for everything they had saying: “It was a GIFT!” How these rich older guys can deceive themselves into thinking that these model types are really in love with them!!! As Mark Twain said: “It’s easier to deceive someone than to convince them they’ve been deceived.”
