“ I want a man with nuclear power. ” Carla Bruni, First Lady Of France
You probably didn’t hear much about Ms. Bruni until last week.
But I’ve been following Bruni since French President Nicolas Sarkozy started courting her. She’s been a regular in the tabloids having went from model to France’s First Lady. She’s been attached to some famous men like Mick Jagger, and blamed for his divorce from wife Bianca. While living with her man, Jean-Paul Enthoven she fell in love with his son Raphaël Enthoven who was married to a novelist. The son divorced his wife for Carla.
Talk about a woman who loves scandal! Carla then had a son for him and later left him. She’s often said that monogamy is not her cup of tea. Carla even inspired Raphaël’s ex wife to write a novel about her pain.
Carla doesn’t have a terribly accomplished background with all kinds of accolades. She’s just a woman who used her sexuality to get up close and personal with men of status. She’s the type that breaks the hearts of men. This is the kind of woman who has to do very little, and gets very far. She follows no rules and is not holding the torch for women’s lib and loyal to “the girls”. She’s her own woman. She’ll take the man, married or not. She loves, hurts, grows, moves on, and rises. She’s gone so far as to be the First Lady of France, a distinguished position of honor and prestige. A woman of her background in the U.S. would not have gotten as far as she did, except for being a pinup or reality tv star. In France, they actually like women.
She met the Nicolas Sarkozy at a dinner in November 2008. He was divorced at that time. She got him to marry her by February 2009. Kudos girl!
Carla is now more refined and ready to leave her mark amongst important international causes and initiatives. And if chooses she can eat croissants all day, too, because her job is done. A little late bloomer, marrying at 42, she finally got her nuclear man. Mission accomplished.
I nominate her for induction into the Alphanista Hall of Fame. Yay or nay?
