Not happening here either!

That file is 100 MB of space...pretty huge. I gave it a shot but it was going to take over an hour to load and I'm on a DSL. I gave up.

Anyone else have better luck?

I downloaded it. I have a really fast connection and it took ten minutes. However, even after downloading the file, it still wouldn't play. Quicktime said that the link could not be found or something like that.

So I guess it could be that either the link to the video has been broken, or else you need a super fast connection speed and lots of room on your computer. Don't know.

Wow -- I've been reading some of those comments from people who also saw her recent 'interview'.

http://forums.france2.fr/france2/tou...et-10955-1.htm

They don't seem to have anything nice to say about NC -- and there are very few comments on her looks (they do comment on it though).

They reamed her about everything, especially what they see as a haughty attitude and how she wanted everyone dismissed from the stage. Some body also suggested that it may have been because the audience might have been able to make discussion with her -- understandable she would not want any part of that. I expect that any audience would be there to make discussion with any guest on that kind of show.

Many of them seem to suggest that NC need stop trying to hang on to Monaco and some kind of an idea that she may have in her head about she would be able to regain a footing w PA one day and resume a relation with him.

Makes sense to me -- when it's over, it's over.

wow.

In regards to the above photos of NC posted by tbhrc...it seems she was "posing" in all of them. Does not appear that she is trying to be discreet or downplay any attention. Just my opinion.

Wouldn't you be too if a photographer was taking your picture? It is difficult to remain a blank face when it is so natural to smile for the camera. I know I would be very aware of the photographer.

Cool

Please don't take this as an insult. After all I have a very dark daughter. But my comment was in reference to Nicole. She looks nice to me for an african woman. I have heard other comments about her color and Monaco. If it up to me I wouldn't care at all. And if Monaco residents can't take her because of her color, well it is their loss.


As far as their relationship is concerned, and I know not everyone is the same, they are BOTH at fault. He knew he was having sex. he should have guarded himself and not trusted anyone. I don't care what she did to "trap" him. If he was really thinking about his responsibilities he should have protected himself, not rely on someone else to take pills or after the fact pills.

It happened and Alexander was born. he knew about it and he supplied for him. Neither of us were there to actually know for a fact what the Prince promised. And let me tell you, he must of had promised something to her, because otherwise she would have come out a lot sooner. but she didn't. And that tells me how human behavior is between relationship. You endure and you safeguard what you Love, but once there is no need you break loose and do your own thing. and people, none of us can take that away from Nicole. Remember that the one with more money and less feelings control the realtionship. And if you don't beleive it look around yourselves, and you will see it everywhere. You had be amazed. It happens to all of us.

That things didn't worked between the two of them, well is a pitty. I think he cared to some extent but she Loved too deeply and her color got in her own way. Rainier would have never allowed it. Why did you think he changed the law? Or does everyone on this forum actualy think Rainier did not know that Albert had a child? You are to tell me that his bodyguards were more loyal to him that their actual boss? When you belong to those type of close knit families where security is involved everything is known.

So their worlds are attached by a small prince, that even though his father doesn't want to admit, it is true and he can't denied. Her name will always be present in Albert's life like it or not, and Albert's name will forever be in Nicole's life to her delight.

I am glad she moved to Monaco to be close to her prince. At least she is trying to mend what ever broke them apart. And if she doesn't get it at the end, at least she tried. And that's what counts. I give her a lot of credit for having the courage to stand up for what she feels inside her and believes what's right for her own son. Keeping her son near his father might be good enough for her to see Albert or know about him. One never knows, but if she had to go through this again, I hope she would do it sooner rather than later like she did.

And don't get me wrong, I like Albert a lot. Of all the Princes he is my favorite, but as a man, I think he did wrong, and as a father he did poorly. There is no excuse as to what kind of woman he said she was, because other wise why did he have sex with her in the first place, for pleassure only? then his little mind needs some tweaking!!!

KING: You didn't know about him up to then?

ALBERT: I did know about him but that also happened in a very kind of strange way but he will have everything he needs and I will see him as often as possible but, you know, and anything else is just my concern or concerns my private life. He uses condoms to protect himself from STD's. There is more there in how she got pregnant then has been said.

Sorry I will say this one more time the Constitution was changed before Alexandre was conceived.

No he didn't know.

KING: Was this blackmail of any sort? Did she say to you unless you do something with this financially I'm going to go to the press?

ALBERT: I had already taken care and pledged support and had already started supporting but I think the lure of recognition and of, you know, being in the public eye was a great -- was very appealing to her.

All those photo's she is smiling for a reason. She wants the attention and is posing for the photo's. How much do you think they pay for photo's of her? How much can she make as well in giving them? She gains the attention Albert says was very appealing to her. She got a taste and loved it.

Anyone ever realize she stayed quiet while Rainier was alive because she was afraid of what he might do? I did.

She is making it hard for Albert to see his son by attitude and he is working things out so he can. I would take that to mean she now has to face legal action to allow him to see his son Nicole free. I take it she wanted the house not to be near him but because it was what she wanted all along. She couldn't get the Palace or him so she got pregnant and she found the house she wanted as close as she could get to Monaco to rub his nose in it and any woman in his life.

Hi Mika,

The constitution was changed before Nicole conceived, but certainly after Albert and Nicole's relationship had begun leaving Rainier plenty of time to disapprove and review options. If Rainier was worried of the possibilty of a illegitamate being born as a result of thier union or any other possible union then he certainly fixed that didn't he.

As for whose fault it is, who cares....:) the child is already here! I mean really we'll never know all of the intimate details of thier relationship and pregnancy's occur everyday in this world. This pregnancy discussion has become so repetative in this thread I'm surprised that nobody's bored of it by now.

Nicole Coste

I must come to the defenses of our friend, Nicole Coste.

She is Sagittarius, for crying out loud. She is lively, passionate, jolly, acts and speaks before she thinks, likes attention (who blames her), friendly, dreamy, open, tall and stunning. It is very easy to see why our prince liked her. She likes to touch a lot, just like he does. In fact they are much alike. She is sensitive and wants the world to be fair and righteous. That's why she came forth like she did. Ok, she didn't really think matters to the end but it is not in her nature. She wanted right to be right. Sagittarius doesn't like secrets. They want things in the open. And it is very likely that she planned to get pregnant when he visited her for the last time, she thought she was in love with him and she was going to have him in any way she could, again not thinking things through.

Their relationship was fated, the boy was meant to be born and there is nothing we can do about it.

If I were Albert's wife one of the first things I would do was to visit her and offer her my friendship. Although they don't speak at the moment it would at least make them friendly towards each other. As for the boy I would make an effort to become friendly with him and bring him to his father gradually. Everyone needs some contact with both their parents to develop and grow up on a healthy basis.

I recommend that you stop colling her "that horrible woman" and start looking into her eyes. She is maybe a bit childish and immature, but sincere and good natured.

Love
Donna - the wholy mother

Thanks for the explanattion and keep the predictions coming:p

However, Sorry Donna for me she is that horrible woman, if somebody wants a fairy tale; the Cinderella movie just got re-released (gorgoeus btw)
this is a woman that paked her 2 previous kids (100% black for the ones that has called this issue a racist one) and gave them to their (black) father, because as she puts it "he thought she was taking to much time for Albert", this is a woman who used to be a flight attendant, this is not a 9to5 job or something similar, Does not makes you wonder what did he see? i mean the father of the kids.
Then in order to have "her kid" Eric this time; closed to his father, she demands a house that she knew it was going to be given to her because at that time that last thing Albert wanted was a escandal (his father was getting very sick) and she wants her kid to be closed and have a meaningful relationship with his father, however this time the father is white, rich, a prince (getting better, Right?) and yes this kid (50% white, son of rich and prominent head of the state, deserves to be closed to her and to his father)
Gee, makes me wonder if she invest in the stock market, because she will be investing in the Preferred Genetic $tock $ector, (and now I've being very sarcastic).
I don't find her beautiful at all, but then again I don't have to.

interview in america

i saw pa being interviewed by diane sawyer in the united states. pa was rather glum looking when talking about his son. i guess i just can't understand him. i would think he would be gushing with joy that he is lucky enough to have this beautiful precious child. i would think he would be proud to have this precious gift of a child. instead he is glum about it. that is why i think he is a promiscuous rich spoiled brat. he said only legitament children can sit on the throne. his grandmal princess charlotte was illegitamate and she sat on the throne. he has the power to change the constitution and make illegitamate children sit on the throne. he also said the family want to protect the privacey of caro and steph kids. it this is the case why do they have them come to official functions? in other words i think they use those kids for their looks to get attention from the media.

I see we are still on the Albert and Nicole saga. This situation is so old; it is like playing eight track tapes when everybody has moved on to cds. It is totally ludicrous when people try to analyze a relationship they know nothing about. Now the discussion concerning this relationship, has moved to another level, astrology predictions. Gee wiz what is next? I thought astrology was for entertainment purposes only.



Albert gave two full interviews and I am sure many people on this forum watched it. Questions were presented to Albert and he replied with answers. Why are people trying to analyze the interview? Why are people trying to interpret what is in Albert thoughts without having a clue? Just because he was not enthusiastic in his replies does not means he lacks feelings. Why are people trying to analyze Nicole and baby Alexander? This child is only two years old and probably still in pampers, so what could you possibly know about him. He is only a toddler and having fun. Just because there are pictures posted on the net and tabloids rags does not mean anything. You can not assume anything unless you were there. Let these people live their lives in peace! Nobody will ever be privy to know what happened in this relationship!
