First lady strays

The week's news at a glance.

Milan

Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s wife, Veronica, acknowledged an extramarital relationship in an interview with the London Times this week. The former actress, who married the right-wing premier after he spotted her performing topless, has been bored sitting around Milan with the children while her husband travels the world. “I not only get to speak to him on the telephone,” she said sarcastically, “sometimes I even get to see him on television.” So she’s been spending time with Massimo Cacciari, a Marxist philosopher who was once mayor of Venice. Berlusconi shrugs off the affair. After a recent meeting with Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Berlusconi said, “I think I’ll introduce him to my wife, because he’s even handsomer than Cacciari.”
