why should she have said bad tings about him? The publicity boosted her carreer and if she wanted to continue to live here, not talk or o say nice things was her only option. Especially if she wanted to continue to attend high profile events here, which she needs to be photographed at to help her carreer. I don't call that class, I call that smart. Claudia Schiffer did exactly the same when the press spread rumours about her and PA and she still lived here.

Paca,
Does Tasha attend these types of events frequently with PA-- is this nothing to get excited about regarding a future wife ....?
Or is this a way of publicly stating to everyone that she is back in the fold?

We all have baggage, just that some have more than most. And besides, he didn't intentionally have a child with NC. There are probably 1,001 reasons why he hasn't married that really are not that apparent to the public. Mostly I think it has a lot to do with his judgment of who can and is willing to do the job.

I think we're all jumping to conclusions here...no one knows if they are dating again just b/c she was seen in a few photos. And remember PA was dating her, Alicia Warlick and a host of others when in the relationship wit NC. Could mean something; could mean nothing. Could be that she is posing as a "camera ready" date. Paca, I guess this means you'll have to scout around to see if she's at the St. Devote Mass on the 27th. (That is the feast day, correct?)

I have to agree with paca she does suddenly turn up when her modeling/acting career needs a boost. She'll never be starving but the behavior that paca describes does make her sound a bit self-important. Obviously the high maintenance woman that we all believe would be the worst choice for princess. It also doesn't sound like she'd be very content for very long living in someone else's shadow.

She is stunning in the photos I've seen so I can't judge her on her everyday look and if she can make him happy...hey, more power to her.

One of those 1001 reasons is evident...it's on the surface...Many men and women in their thirties-fortieth do not want marriage because they are so afraid of making a mistake...may be the main mistake in their life. They are confused about what kind of person they want - and the men are even more confused! :o Such doubts and uncertainy about corectness of the every more or less important step are usually absent or blurred when you are twenty...
Second reason its' a habit of living alone when you are responsible only for your own life, do what you want, spend your evenings&nights as you want, feel yourself comfy and want nothing change...unwillingness and fear of changes is a dangerous habi...I know it from my own experience :) ...and understand Albert in respect of it very well

Tasha looks like what my husband calls a "FAB"--- Far Away Beauty
She is still very attractive---but it sure makes a difference when the photo is not airbrushed...
Her skin does seem to have more wrinkles and eye bags than a 32 yr. old should have.......

Well, paca...those photos were quite remarkable. I thought Tasha was still in her 20's and in the photos from the previous posts she looked wonderful. The wonders of airbrushing. I thought she was billing herself as an "actress" these days. I'm glad for my good genes and that I don't look my age. Guess we can cross her off the list.

I wouldn't call it fear of making a mistake but in your 30's you have a few more mistakes under your belt and you can be quite specific about what you want and why. It's not really confusion. And I still maintain that there are a lot of people in these age groups who were really focused on their career so that relationships just didn't take center stage.

This, sadly, can be true. Also have to remember that PA had to run any potential spouses by his father for approval. Not that Rainier probably didn't want his son married, but they may have had more than a few differences in what a future Princess of Monaco should be.

Paca...do you think the circus organizers could have invited her to add to the "star quality" of the event and PA extended the invite to sit in his box out of courtesy? Just a thought...

No, the festival committee doesn't do this. They have other ways of accomadating particular guests. They are more associated with the friends of the circus. Besides all the seats in the boxes are for sale, except PAs, which is the only one that is always photographed ( there are several photographers seated right below, between the boxes and the arena). This is not an event were you see stars beside the event. The event is the circus and the stars are the artists. If you see VIPs, they are mostly there, because they are close friends of the family and adore the circus. Mostly you see French actors or directors who are also otherwise known for their circus passion. The circus festival has been created to support the circus and give them another plateau to present itself. I doubt that it was ever intended to attract those glamourous people to it. They would take away from the celebration of the circus rather then adding to it.

I do think that they have "reconnected". I"M sure PA feels foolish for "two timing" Tasha for Nicole and others......
Tasha has probably proved herself a true friend in times of need....
I think Tasha must have comforted him for what he has gone through in recent months. I think he could have made a quick phone call to get her the prime seat for the circus event.
IMO ,I think they are slowly beginning to date.

He does not need to make a phonecall for her to join him in his box. I saw on MOnday how Robert Hossein joined him. He was later then PA and asked whether he could join him. He actually talked to Cl Fringant, who seemed surprised to see him and after a short exchange of words and a quick remark to PA, he was admitted. That shows you, that as a dear friend to the family, you can just come and see them without much fuss made about it. And he was seated right next to PA, not somewhere int he back or far away. If they were together, I'm sure they would have been seated together since tongues will wag whether she is next to him or 3 seats away. I think it is rather a statement that he is not sitting next to her.

That's right. Stephanie's friend Virginie is often sitting in that box with them too - there's no problem.

Paca,
I liked your story of meeting Cheryl Ladd. Its so interesting to think that when a movie was made of the life Princess Grace--They chose Cheryl Ladd to play her! She was wonderful in that role.... The movie was in 1983--but I saw it a while back on a cable channel.

As always interesting points. With the kind of scrutiny that you describe, paca, it does make sense to me why PA is still single. He is attracted to and attractive to many pretty faces -- women who are used to being the center of attention and often lead very sheltered lives thanks to managers and stylists and the like. Many have fragile egos that perhaps would not be able to withstand that kind of treatment without the constant reassurance of a paid entourage. My assumption (whether true or false) is that to be princess you would not be praised as much as criticized even by those working for you. You would be expected to do a good job, to perform flawlessly, to think before you speak, put the needs of state, your spouse, your family above your own and if you falter for even a moment, a harsh reprimand would follow. I guess that is the price you pay for entrance into such a little piece of heaven; it sounds like the ultimate gilded cage.

I remember reading once that PA wanted someone who could share not only the work but the emotions of his job (whatever that means). And with his predeliction for supermodels that may or may not possess intellectual interests, finding an ideal woman may be hard. Sort of reminds me about why a very attractive, well off, genuinely nice gentleman I know is still single: he claims to be in search of a supermodel with a PhD who owns her own brewery. Tough order to fill.

Generally people, men and women alike, are very friendly. But that is very superficial and the glitzier the people, the more they talk behind your back. In general, if you live here, you have to live with the fact that everyone knows almost everything about you. So, if you want to have a secret affair, you're better off having it elsewhere. People see you a few times at the same place and they decide it is worth knowing more about you. When my ex takes the kids out, he doesn't need to tell me where they went, because by the time they get back I already know, because people tell me where they were seen. You also need a good BS detector because a lot of people try to tell you things that are not true. So it is in general not easy to make friends here. For someone not accustomed to this sort of environment, it would surely be diffcult to live here and especially if you were the princess, you would need to be very careful in whom to trust. Life is much easier elsewhere. A lot of people here, especially the wealthy, are more into appearance then into human qualities. You will be respected to a certain degree, while you look good. Men like to decorate themselves with beautiful women, even though they despise them for lack of intellect. But once beauty fades and you have nothing else to give, people will be not very nice.

I think to live here, you have to have some extra skin to protect yourself. You need to be fairly tough. But once you know all the unwritten rules, I think you can be happy here. It is certainly easier elsewhere, especially since everyone is leading a sort of public life - VIP or not -, but if you like the area and find whatever else you're looking for in life, you can be just as happy here.
Paca, thank you very much for not only answering once, but answering twice. :)

Claudia Schiefer and Albert were never romantically involved, he wasn't in love with Alicia and while he was publicly dating her, Tasha, and Angie he was privately seeing Nicole who he was romantically involved with even if once a month there was something there until he told her they should just remain friends. Yes, I know Albert will make an announcement about marriage. He is a very likable man and none of his ex-gf or public dates have said anything bad about him that is a positive in his favor.

i am just curious how you know this for sure?? do you have a link??. i think you also kinda did not understand my last sentence. i didnt say he wast going to get married i said `when he gets married`. you cant teach an old dog new tricks, if by your own admission he was two timing or three timing all these women at the same time what makes you so sure he will stick to one woman when he gets married?? and if the rumblings about Tasha being back in his life are true and and yet she wasn`t enough for him then (since he was with nicole too at that time) what makes you so sure she will be all he needs now? and remember all this happened within the last 5 years not in his 20s.....
