Guido’s favourite euro-politician and media magnate, Silvio Berlusconi, understands that politics is showbusiness for ugly people and he wants to change it into a more pure showbusiness. You can perhaps understand why with that kind of insight he is a billionaire.
He is unveiling his latest leggy line-up of prospective candidates for his centre-right Party of Freedom in the upcoming Euro-elections:
Camilla Ferranti posed semi-naked for a variety of calendars and magazines and has also appeared in several Italian soap operas. It emerged last year, that Berlusconi had rung the head of the state television company RAI and “suggested” she be given a role in a top TV series.
Barbara Matera is perhaps the most qualified with a science degree but is better known for her appearance in Miss Italia and her TV career where she has appeared as an announcer and in several soaps. “I have always wanted a career in politics but I didn’t feel I was ready but Silvio says I am and I think I will work very well in Strasbourg.”
Angela Sozio has appeared on Grande Fratello, Italy’s Big Brother, and was famously snapped sitting on Berlusconi’s knee two years ago at his luxury villa in Sardinia. The group was dubbed “Berlusconi’s Harem” by the Italian media and in other photographs Angela was seen holding hands with the premier.
Eleonora Gaggioli (above) has a glittering past as a TV star and a Google search finds plenty of pictures of her posing in her underwear. Like Camilla, Eleonora was also named in the “Silvio tapes” last summer.
Silvio really has it good.
