Brigitte Bardot slams French politician in row over his memoirs
The French papers are particularly “French” this morning with love affairs and phallic gherkins making the front pages! Libération features a gastronomic guide to Valentine’s Day on its front page but the photo wouldn’t be…to all tastes. Take a look. Zo French!
Meanwhile on the front page of Le Parisien / Aujourd’hui en France, Brigitte Bardot hits out at the UMP politician Patrick Balkany who has suggested in his memoirs that he and the famous French actress may once have had a love affair. Bardot has called Balkany “a big hillbilly lair of a rare vulgarity”. She says she knows who she has and hasn’t slept with and the list does not include Patrick Balkany!
