Quotable: Date Rich, Older Men So You Can Inherit Cash, Advises Italy’s Prime Minister

“I said to a girl to look for a wealthy boyfriend. This suggestion is not unrealistic. … [Women favor older men because] he’s old. He dies and I inherit.” — Italy’s prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, speaking at a convention this weekend. Mind you, this particular 72-year-old man’s wife is divorcing him over rumors of call-girl trysts and hanky-panky with an 18-year-old model. Perhaps he’s not the best person to be doling out relationship advice? [AP]

Today’s Lady News: Italy’s Prime Minister Calls Michelle Obama “Sun-Tanned”

  • Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi made a stupid joke about Barack and Michelle Obama‘s dark skin, calling it a suntan.

Is Silvio Berlusconi A Sex Addict?

How convenient. According to Fox News, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is being encouraged by those closest to him that he needs to seek help for his “sex addiction.” The PM has been embroiled in molto controversy ever since he attended an 18-year-old’s birthday party, engaged in sexy phone calls with her, allegedly had sex with a call girl, and supposedly tried to fill parliament seats with actresses and showgirls. His wife has since filed for divorce because of these icky shenanigans. While Berlusconi certainly has an over-the-top sexual appetite, I’m a little sick of boys behaving badly using the “sex addict” excuse. There’s been some debate as to whether “sex addiction” is for real — I tend to think it definitely is, but I also don’t think it’s nearly as prevalent as the David Duchovnys of the world would have you believe. Some dudes can, but instead refuse to keep it in their pants. [Fox News] Keep reading »

The Political Sex Scandal: Italian Style

Supposedly, Italians in the late ’90s couldn’t grasp why the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal caused such hysteria in the states. Well, my dear Italians, the tables have turned. In case you’ve been under a rock (like I have) Italy’s premier, Silvio Berlusconi, has been living out a Clintonian mess for the last week. First, Berlusconi attended the 18th birthday party of model Noemi Letizia in Naples. Then his wife, former actress Veronica Lario, filed for a divorce, saying it was inappropriate for Berlusconi to be at the girl’s birthday since, well, he never bothered to show up at any of his own kids’ 18th soirees. (Good point.) And now photographs have leaked depicting a New Year’s party held at Berlusconi’s Sardinian villa where model Letizia was part of the turnout.

Berlusconi vehemently denies the rumors, and says that if anyone can prove the allegations are true he’d resign “in an instant.” This saga couldn’t come at a worse time for him. Elections are next week and this political pickle might push Berlusconi’s Italian rightist party out of power.

In other news, now I can name at least one person I’m having a better week than. [Associated Press]
