ABC's Christophe Schpoliansky reports from Paris:
A new book claims the French presidential couple kept an unidentified head of state waiting while they had sex. Ooh la la!
In the new book, “The Promise: President Obama, Year One”, Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter reveals that, during a visit to the US, France’s first lady, former supermodel-turned-singer Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, bragged to her American counterpart Michelle Obama how she and French president Nicolas Sarkozy had made a head of state wait while they were having sex.
'Bruni wanted to know if, like the Sarkozys, Michelle and the President had ever kept anyone waiting that way,' wrote the American journalist. ‘Michelle laughed nervously and said no’ he added.
The spicy revelation on the sex life of the French presidential couple has led people to think that the dignitary in question may even have been the Queen of England, although she was never identified by Bruni-Sarkozy in the discussion. During an official state visit to the U.K, President Sarkozy and his wife spent a night at Windsor Castle, home of the Queen, shortly after they married two years ago.
The Sarkozys are notorious for being late. In 2008, they kept Prince Charles waiting on the 90th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice. And the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month became… 11:10am, after their helicopter brought the Sarkozys late to the ceremony.
The new book about President Obama’s presidency is due to come out next week.
