Valerie Trierweiler

Dodgy little rooting socialist ratbag set to give the missus the arse-card?

Bit of a dilemma for the ratbag socialist French president, he moved his girlfriend into the Elysee Palace when he was elected, she has a staff of 5 for god knows what (when was the last time a socialist was prudent with taxpayers cash), she has use of a private jet plus all the extra goodies.

So logically as she is just his girlfriend or the first girlfriend as she is dubbed now he is shagging someone else does one move out and the other one in ?

The pollsters are saying it won’t affect his numbers?.well of course not he is the most unpopular president of all time.

France’s First Lady Valerie Trierweiler was yesterday facing the prospect of becoming the first in history to be kicked out of the Elysee Palace.

It follows humiliating revelations that her partner, President Francois Hollande, has ?fallen in love? with a woman almost 20 years his junior.

Mr Hollande?s relationship with actress Julie Gayet, 41, was exposed by a series of pictures in French Closer magazine which show him travelling to see her on a moped.

But beyond a new romance, opponents claim the scandal exposes publicly funded deceit, security lapses, and the huge cost of a first lady who no longer has any legitimacy.

Mr Hollande, who turns 60 this year, was poised to make a statement to ?clarify? the position of 48-year-old divorcee Miss Trierweiler. ? Read more »

Another way of saying dodgy rooting ratbag

The little French roster caught like Len Brown with his pants down is threatening to sue Closer magazine.

President Fran?ois Hollande was facing a private and political crisis after a celebrity magazine published photos it says proves he is having a “secret love affair” with a film actress almost 20 years his junior.

Closer magazine released photos it says shows the 59-year old Socialist leader and his new lover, Julie Gayet, 41, entering an apartment block a stone’s throw from the Elys?e Palace in Paris.

Val?rie Trierweiler, the “official” first lady to whom the president is not married, recently took up residence in one of the wings of the palace.

Closer’s Friday edition carried a seven-page report on the alleged infidelity, in which a man it insists is the president arrives on a chauffeur-driven scooter to spend nights in the flat.

Miss Gayet arrives separately. The pair are brought croissants by a man identified as his bodyguard the following morning.

“It’s a real passion that has … turned their lives upside down and makes them take insane risks,” the magazine wrote.

The report in Closer, which angered many in Britain for publishing topless pictures the Duchess of Cambridge in 2012, sparked a furious rebuke from the president, who, however, failed to deny the liaison.

A source close to the president said he “greatly deplores the invasion of his privacy, to which he has a right as any other citizen does.” The president was “studying what action, including legal action, to take”. ? Read more »

Who would have thought?

French crumpet?causes problems:

Val?rie Trierweiler’s boss says she has caused “nothing but trouble” at the magazine where she works since becoming France’s first lady, according to a new book.

Arnaud Lagard?re, billionaire owner of Paris Match, the glossy weekly, allegedly viewed the 47-year-old divorcee as “an unpinned grenade” whose contract he did not wish to renew at the end of the year.

The comments come from a new biography on the controversial 51-year old arms and media tycoon by journalist Jacqueline Remy, extracts of which were published in Marianne magazine yesterday.

In Arnaud Lagard?re, The Heir Who Wanted To Live His Life, Remy said she asked him whether having the French first lady as an employee was a benefit.

“Are you kidding?” he is quoted as replying. “Up until now, she’s caused us nothing but trouble!”

Mr Lagard?re is cited as saying in June that her contract would not be renewed when it expired at the end of the year. He justified his decision by saying he wanted “to avoid any conflict of interest” between her journalistic activities and role as President Fran?ois Hollande’s partner.

Dodgy cheese eating surrender monkeys

Looks like the French have stopped covering up their when politicians are serial rooters.

Francois Hollande “shared” his mistress Valerie Trierweiler with a minister from Nicolas Sarkozy’s government in a Jules et Jim-style relationship, a new biography on France’s first lady claims.

La Frondeuse?(The Troublemaker), claims that Miss Trierweiler, 47, had an affair with Patrick Devedjian, 68, a former economic recovery minister, in the early 2000s, but that the Socialist Mr Hollande, 58, muscled in when the Right-winger failed to commit himself further to the relationship.

There followed a period “a bit like?Jules et?Jim,” said the co-author Christophe Jakubyszyn, a close friend of the first lady, referring to the 1962 Fran?ois Truffaut film in which Jeanne Moreau is in a love triangle with two men and all three live in the same house.

“Patrick Devedjian hesitated so much that Val?rie Trierweiler allowed herself to be courted by a second man of another political persuasion: Fran?ois Hollande,” he said.

“Little by little, the relationship with Hollande took precedence over the other, notably after an ultimatum in 2003 which Devedjian failed to respect. But he suffered a lot from the break-up. It was a bit like?Jules etJim. Both men still have a lot of respect for each other,” he said.

All three had other partners at the time.

A Dodgy Frenchman

No surprise here. The head frog was trying to use what Kissinger called the greatest aphrodisiac to his advantage.

In Entre deux Feux (Between Two Fires), out on Wednesday , the journalists Anne Rosencher and Anna Cabana lay bare how he is at least partially to blame for the obsessive jealousy of his current partner Val?rie Trierweiler.

?Fran?ois?has a part of the responsibility in the incredible jealousy of Val?rie. He likes women. He looks at them. It?s very nerve-wracking for Valerie,? said an old friend of Mr Hollande?s.

His new missus has got the shits with him for being a man. The frogs are supposed to be a whole lot more liberal than the rest of us, but it looks like they don?t like their president not having his missus under control in public.

The tipping point?was in June when Miss Trierweiler tweeted her support for a rival running? for election against Miss Royal.?She fired the tweet from the Elys?e after a phone row with Mr Hollande from separate rooms in the palace.

That “opened the door to the president’s bedroom”, the authors write. It was the ?ultimate transgression?, far greater than any committed by Mr Sarkozy?s influential second wife Cecilia.

A brutal statement that will piss off the pinkos and feminists.

Mr Hollande?s reaction was surprisingly ?calm? and ?cold?. ?She is irresponsible?, he is said to have muttered. But his failure to keep her in check has damaged his political authority and ?when Val?rie Trierweiler loses the plot, Fran?ois Hollande?s responsibility is in question,? the authors write.

Sounds like we should all move to France

? The Telegraph

They may like midget politicians but their women put out heaps.

Samantha Brick, the journalist who decried women for being jealous of her “lovely looks”, has taken a swipe at French women including the new first lady of France, Valerie Trierweiler.

Miss Brick, who was publicly ridiculed for her article in April entitled Why women hate me for being beautiful, claimed to have an “insight into the sinister machinations” of the minds of French women.

According to Miss Brick, the ladies of France, who are often celebrated as sophisticated and fashionable, are actually adulterous misogynists.

The columnist for the Daily Mail is married to French native Pascal, and has lived in the country for four years.

In her latest article, she described her experience of French women: “I find them hostile and predatory, ever eager to humiliate their rivals and never batting a beautifully made-up eyelid about falling into bed with someone else?s man.

“To them an adulterous affair is a feather in their cap, or merely another scalp. You see, French women don?t really like other women.”

She used Miss Trierweiler, the partner of the new President Francois Hollande, has an example, under the headline: “Think I’m in love with myself? I’m a shrinking violet next to man-stealing French women”.

“She?d brazenly stolen another woman?s man ? the new President Francois Hollande ? from under the nose of his unsuspecting partner and, in doing so, set herself a place at the top table of international politics,” she claimed.

Miss Brick went on to describe Miss Trierweiler as failing to give “even a cursory nod to the ‘sisterhood'” for posing in “glamorous attire” next to the outgoing wife of Nicolas Sarkozy, Carla Bruni.
