When he thought he could create a bubble of immunity, a big American boss, Peter Diamondis, was caught by reality. During a seminar organized by the XPrize foundation in California (United States) at the end of January, 23 of the 50 participants were infected with Covid-19. The lecturers did not wear masks. We can say that it was a failed experience ...
In their book "The Elysée: Behind the scenes and secrets of a palace", Jacques Santamaria and Patrice Duhamel tell a rather funny anecdote about the companion by Nicolas Sarkozy.
Carla Bruni is a former First Lady who will have marked the spirits. It must be said that the couple she forms with Nicolas Sarkozy is rather atypical and unexpected for the most part. This singer and model suddenly found herself at the Elysee Palace after falling madly in love with the former President of the Republic. Since then, and even if Nicolas Sarkozy is no longer at the head of the country, their romance still holds water.

The Elysée is giving itself 8 to 10 days to decide in the face of the Covid-19 epidemic, the economic and health consequences of which continue to rage.
Jacques Santamaria and Patrice Duhamel have released a book entitled "The Elysée: Behind the Scenes and Secrets of a Palace". In this book they talk about Carla Bruni and in particular the evenings at the Élysée. At that time, she had attended a cocktail party in honor of the movie "Welcome to the Ch’tis". Nicolas Sarkozy had organized a reception in honor of Dany Boon and his comrades from the film in the cinema at the Elysee Palace. The guests had all been received by Carla Bruni, who, obviously, would have greeted them with a beer in hand. A nod to the actors in the film, especially since Nicolas Sarkozy apparently never drinks alcohol.
He confided, in an interview with RTL in 2016, , "I have never had a drop of alcohol in my life, never." His fans now know that when he receives bottles of alcohol as gifts, he isn’t the one who benefits!
