Diane von Furstenberg was a cousin-in-law.
Thats her thanks I knew she was the only one but the name escaped me only I never looked it up to respond I forgot.

You're right David.
One thing is for sure: Stephanie is one sweet understander who helps people and tries to be there for everyone who needs it.

The same thing came on my mind while reading all the posts..So many "rocks" have been hit on Stephanie during the years and every time she fighted back. If that is not courage don't know what it is..Stephanie is definately capable for the role of Minister for Social Affaires..People in need don't look necessairly on material/financial things, one warm hug and a big smile do more than we can imagine..People feel that they are loved and there is always someone outhere who cares about them and puts smile on their faces giving back the hope in better world:)

I am still new to posting, but I must say that I have developed a great respect for Stephanie due to the warm insights that Michelle has shared. Michelle's posts really emphasize the inner stength that Stephanie has.... I think Stephanie is a true survivor!

I can tell that from the lyrics to her music, as well the way she titles her songs and albums.

It's really emotional, i was not there but i have just read your information, it's really makes me feel a lot of emotions,.....It's really sweet, i'm sure that they have really good relationship with each other, and always support each other when in really worst time, and share the happinesses when in the great time, i think Stephanie, with the love and support from her brother and the epople in Monaco, she will do great work.

I think Princess Grace had far too much class to ever do something like that. Besides...she was devoted to her family.

People often talk about the time when Rainier and Grace seemed separated in the late 60s/early 70s. I think it was a natural evolution of their relationship.
They had friends and hobbies and lives apart from each other. Psychologists say that is actually a healthy sign of a relationship, something that keeps the 'core' of the marriage fresh.

I do not at ALL believe Grace physically stepped-out of her marriage. She may have been depressed her children were growing up and on with their lives, but she was getting more active in entertainment for charity causes.

Rumors are just that. The only two people that would know are gone. I think it appropriate to let the rumors go that way as well.

Question Princess Stephanie's Restaurant/business?

There was a thread posted earlier with comments attributed to Princess Stephanie. In it they mention "her cafe" "restaurant." Does she own businesses in Monaco?

Stephanie used to own the Replay store and cafe in Monaco. I think she still owns a couple of Replay stores elsewhere in Europe. It was also reported that she recently bought the Le Lamparo restaurant near Monaco. :)

Perfectly right. The Reply stores and restaurants in Barcelona and Amsterdam are still belonging to Stephanie ( at least to some percentages).

Nope, its the other way around...Before her marriage,Princess Grace had many male admirers and been linked to co-stars like Clark Gable, Cary Grant, and Oleg Cassini..But when she got engaged and married, these affairs were put to history and Grace became a devoted princess, mother and wife..There were rumours of extra-marital affairs, but these were all nasty gossips,hangovers from the pre-Monaco, hollywood era of Grace Kelly..

I happen to read somewhere that once that wicked Junot insinuated that he wouldn't have been surprise if Grace had had an affair with Hungarian director Robert "something", since they were often together, even when Philippe and Caro went dining out with Grace.

You're right, Tosca. Robert Dolhem, I think. Don't exactly remember the last name. He worked with Grace on a project and he was supposed to work with her again in 1982. Yes, I read Junot said that. I think Junot was quoted in the biography, Grace by Robert Lacey. Like they were double dating or something. At that time, Princess Grace was staying in Paris most of the time with Caroline and Stephanie. I think this director said something like Prince Rainier was very tolerant, as there were a number of times when the three of them (Rainier, Grace and him) would dine together. Again, these tidbits are just from a book. I don't personally believe them.
