A French Affair???

| Filed under: Francophilia



Far beyond the glitz, glam and gossip of LaLa Land, there are still those who are important in the world that do naughty, naughty things.

Take, for example, France's President and First Lady, Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni. Their romance was the stuff of fairytales, but they've turned into the stuff of tabloid legends.

Apparently, both Nicolas and Carla have been engaging in extramarital affairs, with the other's knowledge! According to sources, Carla has been seeing a lot of French singer Benjamin Biolay while her husband, Monsieur President, has taken up with one his cabinet members, right-wing politician Chantal Jouanno.

Scandalous! The French know how to keep things juicy!

    From what I understand, this sort of thing is not uncommon in France.

  2. 2

    no surprise here. this is what europeans do. they fuck everything that breathes. nobody cares over there.

  3. 3

    And for the French, this isn't really scandalous at all…

  4. 4

    Re: Emesa – I thought exactly the same thing. Or maybe he's standing on something.

  9. 9

    Actually not scandalous. Just another day in France.

    Re: Filsss – and people who type in all CAPS and are incapable of writing complete sentences should really proofread their idiocy before they hit "submit comment", frenchie.

  12. Laura says – reply to this


    yea, the french people really dont care about this.

  13. Laury says – reply to this


    Shocking… NOT. Of course they have affairs, they're French (actually, Carla is Italian, but whatever…).

    Re: Filsss – @ 7 - and so was that comment….HAHA!

  15. 15

    I use to be fond of gossiping but didn't hear anything about that in the french media. What are your sources ? Having an affair is not a french stereo typical !

  16. 16

    it's not something french people do! It's just we don't care who our president sleeps with. We want him to manage the country, what he does in his bedroom is not our concern.

    oooh,la la..sexy

    Go France. They don't let stupid shit like sex take over their country like we do in the U.S.

    I guess every people saying it's a French thing have never been to France. If you want I can give you a lot of name of American people cheating his/her husband/wife…
    Oh, and all this thing is probably wrong!

  21. 21

    Funny how over here in Europe none of this makes the news because it's part of PRIVATE LIFE. It has nothing to do with their public life. Nobody over here understood the whole Monica Lewinsky thing.

  22. 22

    Yikes they look horrible! And the fuck cares about these frenchie's ? Why are you posting this shit on here?

  23. 23

    Re: Filsss – Shut the fuck up!

    Re: Filsss – Shut the fuck up!

  26. 26

    This is normal and acceptable in France. Many couples do the same.

  27. 27

    This is only scandalous in the stodgy US of A. In France, it's the way it is. Good for them!

  28. 28

    You, american people are so damn ridiculous sometimes, please look at your own politicians and celebrities, are you that naive, blind or hypocrit?
    Plus, Carla Bruni w/t Benjamin Biolay looks so much an hoax, same for Sarkozy and Jouanno …come on people…
    I am so tired of hearing french people don't have values/standards when it comes to relationships, and this or that behaviour is "another day in France". Have you ever lived in France long enough to make such statement? Probably not..
    There is a real life beyond the myths made up by media…

  29. 29

    If both parties are fine with it then who gives a fuck. If they honestly cant stop themselves from having sex with someone other than their spouse than whatever. Its only when one side doesn't want to tell the other what they're doing behind their back does it get wrong or 'scandalous'. Open relationships happen all over the world. Not just France, not just Europe. Its not just the 'norm' over there, each couple is different, each couple has their own rules and boundaries. They're just more open this kind of thing.

  30. 30

    Hmm that explains why they always look so damn happy "o)

  31. 31

    Re: Marcus75YOW – This is sooo not true, are you french? have you ever been into a relation with a french person? Buy yourself a ticket, go live there for a while and see by yourself.
    The only difference with the Us is that as long as the politician/celebrity does what he's paid for then french people don't care of his private life.

  32. 32

    Ahahaha , moi j'adore voir les américains commenter sur la vie privée des gens , alors qu'eux , pour la grande majorité , vivent comme de gros frustrés avec leur religion à la con . Y'à qu'à voir Miley Cyrus et sa bague de chasteté : LA BLAAAAGUE
    Et la soeur de Britney

    Ils nous envient , c'est tout .

    Donc , comme on dit en France sur le net " MDR " .

    Re: lebanebrunette – : Tellement vrai :o )

  34. 34

    I don't care because it's Sarkozy and Carla but please stop bullshitting about France, i bet most of you have never been there so as Lebanebrunette said, come here and then you'll can talk about it.
    It is clearly looked down upon to commit adultery…

    There's an election coming up next Sunday (les Regionales). I was considering voting for the opposition but I am now reconsidering my position. I quite like that!!! Sarkozy will now get my vote but only on that account. Ah, why didn't we get Bill Clinton as French President. After his escapades he would have been elected for life in France ;-)

  38. 38

    Never heard anything about this in France(and I'm french) soo…maybe it's Sarkosy's power with french medias(possible…) OR like others tried to explain to you, American people ^^ it's just that people really doesn't care at all about politic's private life in my country
    (other comments:
    1) LOL about all the comments concerning the "French" way of life: I think it's the same in every country, maybe we are more realistic, I don't know
    2)Sarkozy is definitely shorter than Carla, he certainly wears some "heels"
    3)Benjamin Biolay is a very talented french singer, as Charlotte Gainsbourg, listen to them!!

    Re: Mawishka – ta liste de "sainte nitouche" made in Us pourrait etre longue comme mon bras…
    Ils me gonflent a dire des conneries comme ca….quand on voit ce qui se passe ici aux US…ce sont les plus grands hypocrites et frustres du monde.

    Re: Filsss – oh what a brilliant response, frenchie! way to go! you really got me there! whoo-hoo - how will i ever recover?

  41. 41

    The americans are so sexually constipated, which explains their jealousy of the French people. They only go as far as writing the word "fuck" in almost every sentence they write, that lets out some steam I suppose. MERDE, let Sarko and Carla have fun and I recommend you try doing the same thing. An affair would have done wonders for G.W.B. non ? Maybe he would have left the people of Iraq to live in peace.

  42. 42

    Re: Babouchka – i agree with you about george w. bush, kiddo. he is an asshole and the way he handled iraq is shameful.

  43. 43

    Ha ha ha love the RumerMills.com title "Whore de France".
    Check out their site for a pic of Chantal Jouanno, doubt the President is really have a bit of her.

  44. 44

    Re: lebanebrunette – : certes , la liste pourrait être beaucoup beaucoup plus exhaustive !

    et tigerrrlily qui continue à dire n'importe quoi , qui parle sans savoir , MAIS , qui pour se montrer un peu " justicière " ( très américain tout ça ) dénonce quand même le comportement de Bush ! Ahahahahahaha . Enfin , c'est un comportement très … versatile … très … Américain . Bien sûr , je ne généralise pas , mais elle est pathétique . On lui paye un billet aller pour la France ? Histoire qu'elle arrête de dire de la merde ? ;)
    Quand elle se serra tapé un Français , elle reviendra plus nous jouer sa frustrée la " démago-quand-je-le-veux-mais-fuck-les-Français-quoi " .

    Alalalalalala , quel ramassis de m…

    Re: tigrrrlilly – : We weren't for the war in Iraq US .
    Sarko was . That's also why I don't like him . But shut your cock sucker mouth and stop speaking about what you don't know : France .

    Point .

    Well I'm french and that's the first time i read that rumor … and we don't fuck everybody just because we're french lol….

  47. 47

    Right, but anyways Americans love groundless rumors…
    Haha Sarko se taper Jouanno! C'est juste parce qu'elle a gagné sa compet' rien de +… Quant à Carla j'y crois pas trop non plus.

    Re: mcgavock – you stfu

    Perez, I live and work in Paris. Sometimes, I happen to have lunch or dinner with people working in high functions for the government. One of them told me last week that Chantal Jouanno (the current Secretary of State of Ecology) was sleeping with Sarkozy. He happens to be a well-informed source, so there is a high probability that this rumour is in fact true.

    It might also explain why there has been muffled opposition to Jouanno inside the political party she's part of (the UMP).

  50. 50

    hahaha OMG u r sooooooooooo highlirious Perez, seriously, whats your sources, the Sun???? And no, itsNOT a comon thing in France, not more than in the states, its not the 18th century anymore….

  51. 51

    Its liek saying : he's amrican, he's stupid, thats what they do….Those clichés have to end for pete's sake!!!

    Re: Mawishka – Putain mais qu'est ce qu ils sotn cons ces ricains!!!!

    Re: Mawishka – Hehe way to go kiddo…

  54. 54

    well i can understand why she'd want to have an affair. he's ugly.

  55. 55

    Wow, what a cool rumour, if it's that. If not, well maybe an open marriage is the way to go. They both look radiant.
