Intentionally? How? You mean by her? Yes, everything she has been doing is by clear intention. I would bet that this is not the last. But maybe she's using the current circumstance (based on her past w/PA) to her advantage -- as any opportunitst would. Perhaps her rationale is "they can hate me all the way to the bank"...

Using the gossip to her advantage, it's the same she did with PA throughout -- I read her story -- do something (get pregnant/run to the media, etc...), start gossip, keep it going, create a scene or a circus, then use the situation to make gains, when things start to settle down, just start with something else. Make a soap opera. Keep the drama going on and on...

Again, even if she becomes 'the one that everybody loves to hate' then she can use it to her advantage, because articles and pics of her will right now sell papers and keep people talking of her. When it settles, she'll do something else. It's a circle, right?

If one just ignores all that, eventually it will go away...:)

If she can do it why not?:p

Excuse me but how do you think she has the opportunity to do those photo shoots? Because she's such a mesmerising beauty and has such charisma and has done such wonderful things in her life?
By doing this, she is dragging Albert's name, because he's the only reason why those mags have an interest in her. I've not read Bunte article (actually I've just learnt about that one) but I'm ready to bet that Albert's name is mention in about every sentences. In the Hello photo soot, she was presented has the mother of Albert's love child.
That's sickening.
Yeah, the lady should move on and actually do something she's good at, not something her relashionship with Albert makes her think she's good at.

So let her have as many photo sessions she desire. This allows the Prince to govern his Principality and focus on important matters.
Productive? What is productive about this? You don't have to be a genius to figure out this situation if you know the details of how this woman came to be in the media spotlight. It is very clear that she is using her position as the mother of the son of the Sovereign Prince of Monaco to bring attention to herself. There is nothing productive about this. She is trying dearly to extend fiften minutes to entire half hour.

No one here can stop Nicole from having photo sessions, however what she is doing is clearly in bad taste. I also doubt that having her constanly mouthing off and showing up with a huge grin in photos all around Europe makes Prince Albert's life any easier. He is not innocent in the entire situation since he did father a child outside of wedlock with a human being that I would assume he did not intend to marry nor have a long term relationship. However, this does not mean that the man has to constantly be subjected to this type of embarassment. I don't even know any of these people personally and I am embarassed for all involved.

For me productive would be for Nicole to have realized her mistake in making her son's paternity public and for not considering all involved and simply keeping quiet and finding something extremely productive to do like raising her son to be as grounded as possible since he will need much support now that his privacy has been lost forever.

They ran that picture of Nicole in "the salon" in People Magazine. They had a brief article about this interesting situation.

I can see this discussion heading into the realm of getting nasty again. So before it does, I would like to remind you to please keep the discussion civil. Remember to have respect for our members of this forum and also for the people we discuss. You may not like Nicole or her actions, but she is still a human being that deserves to be treated as such and she is still the mother of Alexandre. Every person on this forum has the right to express their own opinion and should not feel the need to hold it back, just as long as they keep their comments civil. Before hitting the submit button, why not re-read your comments and sit back and think if you would like to hear these comments said about yourself or any member of your family.

If either of these threads get nasty again, they will both be closed.

Albert being the Sovereign Prince do you know if he has the power of declaring a person non-grata in Monaco or even banning someone from the territory? Would be interesting if he did it to Nicole. Would also be interesting if he would get full custody of Alexandre and the boy would probably better off with him.

Thanks for sharing those Bunte photos with us all.:)

Nicole, imho, looks much nicer with her hair short rather than long hair (perhaps it's a weave and it could be taken out). She has nice bone structure short hair does her justice.

Other than that I think it was kinda tacky of her to pose as if she were a princess ala the glamourous ball gowns, bodyguards, elegant "palace looking background, etc (this is what I interpret these pictures to be. Of course others may see it differently. So please don't yell at me for my subjective opinion. :) )

Yes, I generally think she did it intentionally. <Personal remarks removed>

On one of the other mb's there's a link to an article in Todito.com that reports Albert lost his lawsuit against Bunte.

Yeah you're right! It's a woman (because of the breasts). I really thought it was a man.

OK it's French humor. So don't be surprised if you don't get the fun.
