While a handful of former super models are nothing but ugly and bitter - yes, we're looking at you, Janice Dickinson - Carla Bruni is living the high life.
The ex-girlfriend of Mick Jagger and Donald Trump has landed someone even more important than those two icons: French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
"My daughter is living a true love story," Carla's mother, Marisa Borini, told France's Le Parisien today, commenting on just how serious her relationship with Sarkozy has become. "I think that she could very well end up with Nicolas."
Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy are getting very serious.
As People magazine reports, Borini told Italian news outlets earlier this month that her daughter had received a marital proposal from Sarkozy, with a New Year's acceptance deadline.
In Sunday's exclusive interview with Le Parisien, the self-described "very Italian mamma" said she participated in pre-vacation discussions with the couple concerning how they envision Bruni's future role.
"If Carla becomes the first lady of France, she'll have to keep space and time for herself to write," said her mom. "She needs to write her poems, compose music, record her albums. The same with her other obligations she may have, she'll need to arrange her time."
