Today Show: Carla Bruni Little French Songs
The former first lady of France, Carla Bruni (now known as Carla Bruni-Sarkozy through marriage), recently opened up to Vanity Fair about politics, motherhood, music, and her role as Nicholas Sarkozy’s wife. Maureen Orth, a special correspondent for Vanity Fair, came in to talk about her experience with interviewing Carla Bruni. Maureen thought it was a good a time as ever to interview the French model, first lady, and singer given the release of her new album Little French Songs, her coming into her role as first lady, and having a child at age 43.

Speaking on Carla Bruni’s feelings on being the first lady of France, Maureen Orth, said that Carla thought it to be an honor to be representing France. Maureen believes that, while France is more than happy to have her as their first lady, Carla is much more of a homebody than one that goes and seeks out attention, and for good reason.
When she was nursing her baby a few years ago, the French and international press, particularly in America, was incredibly nasty concerning the weight gain that naturally comes with birthing and nursing a child. To add to that, the press believed that she would dump Nicholas Sarkozy as soon as he was out of power.

What about Nicholas Sarkozy? Though he is dying to get back into political arena, he is about one step away from being indicted for accepting campaign funds illegally. Again, though, given the current president Francois Holland’s unpopularity, he still wants to get back in.
With all of this going on, Carla Bruni has no issue admitting that she is currently in therapy. As she says, “wrinkles without wisdom don’t mean anything,” and she most certainly wants all the help she can get to make the beauty marks of age as meaningful as possible.
