Not even "a good thing personally..."

I don't think Albert needs a crystal ball, I think he needs at least half a brain!
For a 50 year old man, and a guy who should have learned a hard lesson or two by now?
He seems to remain as ignorant as ever?
Of course your remark - that's just the thing, some foolish old delusional guy would say, or believe!
Rosalee you do have a sense of humor? Like he think Charlene's not faking it - Please! You really think Albert believes this 30 year old girl has the hots for him, a 50 yr old balding man with a paunch (sadly that is probably why he is dating her-insecurities) Worse, do you think Albert might actually be silly enough to believe others would believe this too! The 20 yr age difference (the ick factor between these two is big here) Well, Albert doesn't have a problem with humility!
Yes, Charlene will be in love until she gets a ring on her finger, with a kid to secure her with even more leverage & financial reward. And then she will parlay it into a rich divorce? Is he going to expect people to feel sorry for him if/when this happens?
I wonder at the time, if he thought he was so much in love with the past women in his life, After what they did to him? I wonder if he thinks that was love? That is a a funny way of how you treat a guy you're in love with?
After he finds himself alone again, with half his fortune gone or rather his fathers -- If he had earned it himself, he may not be so eager to give it away to every girl who has hustled him?
I'm sure this makes his dad happy & proud!
I guess he can go have a drink with an ex beetle and they can nurse their woes? Do you think Paul wishes he had listened to his own daughters and friends who would have had nothing but their own father's interest at heart when they tried to tell him better? But No, they they were both so much in love
, what's the age difference if you are in love? Well how much did Heather end up getting? That's how much in love she was?
After she described Paul as abusive and tells everyone in the world that he tried to strangle her? In the end Paul looks just like the stupid fool everyone told him he was in the first place? What went wrong they seemed so much in love? (fool)
You think he wishes his hard earned fortune would have gone to all his children he had with Linda that he shared most of his life with - No, he would rather give it away to a women who made a couple years investment and made his life a nightmare? Because they seemed so much in love?
I'm sorry but how often do we have to hear these dumb men's sob stories, because they are attracted to Barbie's? Actually that gives Barbie a bad name? Barbie started out as a fashion doll that was sophisticated woman with a lot of style, that doesn't describe these women at all!
Anyone take a look at Charlene's old boyfriends? Does Albert look like a man she would be dating if he (as mentioned in another post above) didn't have so much to offer "her." Is she looking to offer anyone anything?
In a position that requires (more than most) someone who has something to offer? It's (IMO) why she is not liked more than any other reason, she seems nothing but self serving? Her sense of self importance with so little reason to be so? She does not come across as honest or genuine with all the phoney Olympic talk, all the press about her hoping to do charity? Anyone believe this girl exudes any kind of grace and intigrity? Even in thae last two years she hasn't even bothered to fake it? If she does nothing at all to even get the prize she is so eager for? How can anyone believe she is going to put any effort into the more serious role and the work that would be required, once she has gotten to her goal (of someone else providing her with something)? iShe thinks her life is going to be one big party and she can get other people to do things for her, like I assume she has in her past? (JMO) She does seem a selfish and backwards girl -- it does boggle the mind? This is what Albert is attracted to? I guess his past confirms this really, I don't know why anyone continues to be confused, myself included! But it does leave one to believe he cares little about virtues in women, and he seems to still have old fashion shallow views of women. According to a past post he seems to marginalize women into a some kind of 50's "Father know best"...sexist roll?
Woman are suppose to live around the idea that they are there purely for the comfort of their man when he comes home
(barefoot (dumb) and pregnant I guess?) Rosalee was it you that said, maybe he was looking for this? In one of your post? I wouldn't put it past him? I'm sure Charlene would pretend to be willing to do this for about five minutes?
But does Albert really see something maternal in Charlene? She is a child herself? With her own limitations what does he expect his children to turn out like? Of course he seems to lack common sense himself? I think perhaps he should leave the responsibility of the heir to Caroline?
Fortunately, he does not run the risk of losing his job and has people making sure everything gets done while he enjoys himself. So maybe his personal life is more important to him at this moment and maybe later on it will be the job of running things.
Well as you seem to suggest? It's a good thing this guy gets to be a selfish unappreciative self important cad? I mean he is lucky that he didn't have to assume the role much earlier like his father? Or that Monaco didn't have to rely on him to build the economy or the wealth that he can now just kick back and enjoy himself, minus any responsibility? Do you think the people of Monaco will have much respect for a prince who at 50 years of age thinks his personal life is more important to him, maybe when he is 70 he will get around to running things? I wonder if the people that are actually running things have any respect for him? Sounds like a very selfish self centered guy? Rosalee, I hope Albert isn't as bad as you desribe?
... maybe everyone is very forgiving because they truly want to see him happy first?
Well, do I have to say it, considering the remark above - Do you really think he believes this is a sentiment of the people of Monaco? Rosalee, you are funny! I'm sure this is the foremost concern of everyone, a guy born into wealth and priviledge and at 50 he still thinks his personal life is more important than anything else including being the head of state of the country he is meant to rule? I'm sure everyone thinks the spoled prince's happiness is the most important thing above all?
Like he hasn't had 50 years to do nothing but have fun. Wonder how Albert would have ever made it in the real world? With this thought though I can see the equity in the realtionship with Charlene? They would both seem to be very arrogant and be equally self centered and neither would concern themsleves with the wish or care for any respect, or for anyone to actually admire them for any reason, as long as they can force themselves on people with pictures of themselves because they believe people would admire & be interested in them regardless?
Rosalee, Albert is not that self important is he?
The sad part about all that is: Will they get along as well when she is NOT the centre of his attention all the time anymore??? Will their love last past his shifting tides? It usually does not work out well in such cases. Maybe he taking this time to consider some things against this love he feels?
Well I think Albert is smart enough to know what is important in this relationship to Charlene? I think he knows she is only interested in Albert's
she gets the ring and the title - I'm sure he is this smart? Then she will not care about his
attention (honey, I have a headache
), rather she will want all the attention of everyone else in the world focused on her, she is under the delusion that if she is the Princess of Monaco, "she will be the most photographed woman in the world" isn't that what she said?
Also I doubt it is love he is feeling - It is hard enough to get love to last?
And whatever it is, I have a feeling it is one sided? (JMO)
Does anyone here know why Rainier broke off with Gisele after nearly 6 yrs?
I can only guess he decided to get married? Back then people didn't wait 6 years to get married, that fact that she needed anybody to tell her Rainier wasn't going to marry her? Perhaps he wanted a smarter less desperate woman, or maybe she wasn't interested in marrying him?
