French first lady hospitalized after learning about president’s affair: report

Sorry for the long silence guys. I was on vacation but normal services have now resumed.

Another French President is at it again and has managed to land his partner in hospital as a result of his antics. The dear lady got wind of an affair he is having and I guess the sheer betrayal of it left her totally blindsided and shocked.

I wish her a quick recovery and more steel in her heart because that is what it takes to be in a relationship with a man who is not only rich but powerful. Read on.


Valerie Trierweiler  was reportedly hospitalized Friday after Closer magazine reported on its website  that French President Francois Hollande — with whom she’s been in a relationship  with for several years — is having an affair with actress Julie Gayet. 77% of  French people polled by a newspaper said they think it’s a private matter.

French First  Lady Valerie Trierweiler is expected to be released from a local hospital Monday  after she was hospitalized following reports French  President Francois Hollande had an affair with French actress Julie  Gayet.

News of the  affair linking Hollande — who has been in a relationship with Trierweiler for  several years but the two are not married — with the actress surfaced Friday by  the celebrity magazine  Closer.

“It’s a real  passion that has … turned their lives upside down and makes them take insane  risks,” the magazine wrote in its report Friday that detailed the alleged affair  by the 59-year-old president.

In response  Hollande issued a statement to Agence France Presse declaring the story is an attack  on his personal privacy but he did not deny having an affair. He told the news  service he is considering legal action.

In the Closer  report, Hollande is photographed going to Gayet’s flat in Paris with members of  his security detail. He spends the night and leaves the home the next  morning.

A bodyguard did  deliver croissants to the home that morning as well. The magazine pulled the  report from its website due to concern over litigation Friday, but stands by its  accuracy, AFP reported.

But his  longtime partner Trierweiler, 48, apparently took the news very hard and checked  into a hospital Friday, a spokeswoman said. She is expected to check out Monday.  She is currently undergoing tests, the Wall Street Journal reported.

French actress Julie Gayet. A  newspaper reported Sunday that France’s president, Francois Hollande, has been  having an affair with Gayet.

Regarding her  future with the French president, the spokeswoman simply said, “She needs rest.  Then she will decide what to do.”

Trierweiler is  a mother-of-four. The journalist for a celebrity magazine had her children from  a previous relationship with Segolene Royal, a senior member of his Socialist  Party who ran for president against Nicolas Sarkozy in  2007.

Gayet, 41,  appeared in a 2012 campaign ad for Hollande calling the president “marvelous”  and “humble and a really good listener,” AFP reported.

There had been  rumors of the two having an affair before and Gayet’s husband, Argentinian  filmmaker Santiago Amigorena, separated from Gayet in March over the  speculation, the outlet reported.

The  announcement comes at a tenuous time for the president politically as he was  about to announce new pro-business initiatives, the Journal  reported.

But the  newspaper also noted the French public do not seem too concerned with the  developments. A poll conducted by the newspaper Le Journal de Dimanche found 77%  of people polled said they feel the story is a private matter.
