Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in Sex Tape Scandale

cityfile · 04/28/09 08:30AM

If Michelle Obama could be forgiven for feeling a little competitive toward France's first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, especially when it comes to matters of fashion and all-round feminine allure, we think it's safe to say that this morning, Michelle will be feeling glad that her vanity, as far as we know, stops short of making sex tapes.

Police in Paris are hoping to catch the thief before any images hit the web; the web, obviously, hopes the opposite.
