The Royal Cougar

In the United States, Hollywood is the closest thing to royalty; but in Spain, we have actual royals to obsess over.  Most of the time, the Spanish royal family behaves properly. They wear lovely, conservative clothing, they cut ribbons, somberly attend funerals, mingle with other Spanish nobility and generally act regally in front of their subjects. Sometimes, a princess has her nose altered ever so slightly. Or, there's a scandal when it's revealed that this same Princess had a bit of a "past" before marrying the Prince, but generally, the Spanish Royal Family behaves well.

The one big exception to the rule: Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart y DeSilva, the 18th Duchess of Alba.  According to the Guiness Book of World Records, she holds more titles than any other royal in the world, including the Queen of England. At times, it seems, her picture is on the cover of almost every magazine in Spain. Framing her unforgettable, wrinkle-free 83 year-old face, is her signature, white, fluffy mane of hair.  Preferring bohemian garb, she typically wears colorful clothing, dozens of ankle bracelets, necklaces and other bohemian trinkets, eschewing the designer labels.

Some call her one of the most loved celebrities in Spain.

Her bohemian fashion sense seems to be in keeping with her philosophy about life. Always a free spirit, she consoled herself by marrying a Jesuit Priest after her first husband died.  Sometime after her second husband died, she became involved with Alfonso Diez Carabantes, 24 years her junior.  When it was revealed that the Duchess would marry him, the royal family and Cayetana's six children had to step in and put a stop to their secret plan. A couple years ago, The Duchess had a shunt in her head and was in a wheelchair recovering from a serious illness.  But the thought of putting on her Pucci inspired bathing suit and frolicking on the beach with her boyfriend, must have gotten her back on her feet, surfing the waves.

Recently, she confided that "el crisis economique" has affected her too.  It takes mucho dinero to guard her spectacular art collection of Goyas and Velazquezes and to maintain many palatial estates, so she's watching her euros. And she's having fun.  She has the voice of a kitten...

But she's a royal cougar.

Por su parte, la actriz estadounidense Kim Basinger, considerada un s铆mbolo sexual en los aos 80 por su interpretaci贸n en el filme 'Nueve semanas y media', vuelve a mostrar todo su belleza y poder铆o despu茅s de superar su divorcio del actor Alec Baldwin, con quien tuvo una nia. Antes de convertirse en actriz, la int茅rprete de 'Batman' trabaj贸 en Nueva York como modelo en la "Top Model Agency" hasta que la propietaria de la misma, Eileen Ford, le brind贸 la oportunidad de probar fortuna en la televisi贸n.. [url=]zapatillas pumas[/url] Tambi茅n se lesion贸, como en la antesala del duelo por el Mundial, Dan Carter. Pas贸 de la felicidad en la charla con los periodistas el d铆a del anuncio del equipo a unas horas despu茅s lamentar otra vez perderse el partido con Los Pumas. Su reemplazante ser谩 Aaron Cruden, quien termin贸 con la 10 en el Eden Park ante Argentina por la lesi贸n de Colin Slade.
Es dif no encontrar extraordinaria la historia de una persona que se arranca a los dos, tres a de edad; se pierde en la selva al interior de Osorno; es amamantado por una puma; vive siete u ocho a en un ambiente salvaje; luego lo cazan los carabineros, hacen una cacer porque creen que es un monstruo y luego se dan cuenta que es un ser humano, que es un ni de diez u once a el que toman y luego se transforma en un caso importante porque es un ni lobo. Entonces, para un novelista, es como una materia prima maravillosa. Creo que m de alg novelista habr deseado haber vivido con un ni lobo durante la infancia.

Despu茅s de superar la tormenta "Alberto" y tras colocarse l铆der de la flota durante la noche, la tripulaci贸n espaola mantiene un pulso con el "Groupama" franc茅s por la primera posici贸n. Los registros marcados en las 煤ltimas horas y especialmente el 煤ltimo parte de posiciones publicado dejan entrever que es cuesti贸n de horas que el "Telef贸nica" recoja el testigo de Franck Cammas y todo ello con una zona de transici贸n por delante que marcar谩 un nuevo inicio de la etapa.
