French First Girlfriend Hospitalized After Francois Hollande Affair With Actress Exposed

Tyler Durden's picture


When it comes to socialism, the world's premier promoter of egalite - France's Francois Hollande - is very aware that in a socialist utopia, no property is private. Hence everything can be shared, such as actress Julie Gayet with whom it was revealed last week he had an affair. The problem is that the First Lady, er, Girlfriend of France, Valerie Trierweiler, 48, did not share her boyfriend's Marxist view. And, as Reuters reports, when Trierweiler found out about an affair between Francois Hollande and the aforementioned Julie Gayet, 41, she was hospitalized on Sunday morning "because of exhaustion."

Hollande and Trierweiler in happier times:

And the lover, Julie Gayet, 41.

From Reuters:

BFM Television said the Elysee presidential palace had confirmed that Trierweiler had been hospitalised since Friday because of exhaustion.


French daily Le Parisien said earlier on its website that Trierweiler, shaken by the revelations about the affair, had been taken to hospital on Thursday, right after hearing about Hollande's liaison. The paper said doctors had prescribed rest and that she would be discharged in a few days.


On Friday, Hollande threatened to sue celebrity magazine Closer, complaining of breach of privacy after it said he was having an affair with actress Julie Gayet.


Hollande and Trierweiler, a journalist for celebrity magazine Paris Match, are not married but have been in a long-term relationship for several years.

But before readers cry for Madame Trierweiler, recall that while Hollande is a fervent fan of socialism, the former first girlfriend some far more interested in being more equal than others. Per the Mail: "She currently has five staff working for her at her office as well as numerous other taxpayer-funded perks, including homes across France, private jets and limousines. As anger at the scandal grew, politicians suggested Miss Trierweiler’s position was already untenable."

As for Hollande, it seems he is keen on taking a page right out of the Eliot Spitzer playbo(y)ok:

There were even claims that she and Mr Hollande have been living separate lives for months and that the president is keen to ‘formalise’ his relationship with Miss Gayet.


Photographers from French Closer, who watched a Paris flat a few hundred yards from the Elysee for several days, said Mr Hollande regularly met his lover there, wearing a crash helmet when entering and leaving the building in a weak attempt at disguise.


Both Mr Hollande and Miss Gayet have pledged to take action over alleged breaches  of privacy following the exposure of their affair, though  neither denies it. 

Hopefully Hollande hasn't also taken further hints from Anthony Wiener on how to boost his image using social media.

Oh well, it may be time time for France to invade another African republic, or else Hollande's approval rating may be the first in history to turn negative.

My dad (from Lousiana) always used to tell people "there are only three things the French got right, and two of them are in my pipe rack". Usually people don't get it, but occasionally someone would ask what the third was, which he replied "New Orleans; its above sea level."

Seriously, look at French history. Napoleon? John Law? Even their wine is shit anymore and I much prefer good Tex-mex, Italian, Indian, Vietnamese/Thai, and a whole host of other cuisines to French fair.

@Crazy Cooter Alright...  Seriously, look at French history. Napoleon? John Law? Even their wine is shit anymore and I much prefer good Tex-mex, Italian, Indian, Vietnamese/Thai, and a whole host of other cuisines to French fair.

If you enjoy Tex-Mex to French, you never enjoyed French fare anyway.  New Orleans "fine dining" establishments hardly count.

And why Vietnamese/Thai?  Are they supposed to be similar?  The two countries don't even border one another.  I'm guessing - correct me if I'm wrong - the local restaurant offers Viet/Thai "fair" to cover both bases since all concerned won't have the slightest clue to the differences anyway.  And Cambodian/Thai or Lao/Tai just don't have the same ring...

Tex-Mex.  really... freedom fries too I'm guessing.  Methinks someone hasn't gotten over their unwillingness to support Operation Infinite Justice or whatever that was... (Iraq)

@Professor "Never, ever, ever, buy anything mechanical which has been touched by the French. It will leave you stranded everytime."

RENAULT doesn't produces any gearboxes.

And it just happens that Renault-Nissan Group sold 8.1 million cars worldwide in 2012 - behind Toyota, General Motors and Volkswagen for total volume - but more than Ford (5.67 million cars)


BTW Renault is regularly champion of Formula 1 for the motors (with Red Bull) and  is the supplier for Mercedes motors: 1.5 DCI 90Ch à Class A, B, CLA / 1.5 DCI 109Ch à Class B / 1.6 DCI  à Class C

And I have not heard that passengers of AIRBUS (which in 2013 has sold more planes than BOEING) were   leaved stranded everytime.

Yes, but you know that trashing of France is very popular on ZH. And facts don't matter in that at all. France is a great country which produces fine cars. Personally I think that Renault is the lesser of the French cars. But again, all these matters don't matter for the Francophobe ZH'ers among us.

You forgot to mention that the greatest rally driver, probably in history, is Sebastian Loeb from France who drove for Pug/Cit.  Nice guy and he just retired last year.  

Considering the Finns have always been the greatest rally drivers, Loeb's accomplishments are pretty amazing.

PS:  I do like some Airbus more than some Boeing (any 737, mainly because 737s are the worst passenger plane since the kite) but it matters not.  The TSA monkeys have ruined the travel experience entirely.

In Latin (Catholic) countries they've come to realize and accept the reality that "The heart will do what it wants to do" and that "The Groins will do what groins want to do".  Theirs is a libertarian view of "live and let live", as long as you do no public harm that can not be ignored.

In uptight, Protestant England, Scotland and most parts of the US... not so much.  The irony is, that this has never stopped the British aristocracy from siring a small army of bastards -- who become heroes in a Dickens novel, civil servants, or officers in its military.

The pot calling the kettle black.

Even if you don't approve morally, there is a certain difference with Kennedy's or Clinton's escapades:

Hollande is not married …

Whatever the truth, no one can call him an adulterer because he has never been married – neither to Valérie Trierweiler, the ex-journalist who is his partner, nor to Ségolène Royal, his former partner.

You may think that Mr. Hollande has the right to live his life even if he is President of the Republic and the right  to eat his croissants in peace
