Awhile ago, I wrote about Carla Bruni – wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy. For some reason, it became one of the most-read posts I’ve ever, um… posted.
Well, here’s an update to look for her new album – Comme si de rien n’était (As if Nothing Happened) – on July 21 of this year. It’s making news today because of her description of Sarkozy as “her junk” (referring to drugs) and mention of her 30 lovers (which falls just short of Wilt Chamberlain’s 30,000).

“He’s REALLY good looking.”
“He’s pretty busy, so I don’t know how committed he’ll be…”
