Report: French ‘First Lady’ Goes Nuts, Smashes Up $3 Million of National Treasures at Élysée Palace

Looks like she’s taking a page from the Planet Hillary handbook. Well, at least Mrs. Clinton reportedly only busted up a few lamps when she found out about Monica Lewinsky. This one was a little more motivated after finding out her man was smashing it out with a hot actress.

France’s first lady went on a “rampage,” smashing more than $3 million worth of national treasures at the Élysée Palace, when she learned President François Hollande was sneaking out for trysts with his secret lover, it was reported Thursday.

In her tantrum at the French president’s office, Valérie Trierweiler destroyed a Sèvres vase that belonged to Louis XVI, according to Closer magazine, which first reported his affair with actress Julie Gayet.

The French government office responsible for presidential furniture “categorically denied” the report.

Meanwhile, French media offered conflicting accounts Thursday of whether Trierweiler, 48, had agreed to break it off with Hollande, 59.

Trierweiler’s lawyer told Le Figaro newspaper that the two are studying a “clarification” of their relationship.

“The president of the republic and my client are thinking it over,” the lawyer, Frédérique Giffard, said.

“It’s very difficult for Valerie Trierweiler to remain calm under this media and political pressure.”

But Trierweiler has told friends she hasn’t given up and expects to be on Holland’s arm when he makes a state visit to the White House next month, Closer said.

“Despite the ordeal of being cheated on, Valérie Trierweiler is ready to forgive the man who has shared her life for 10 years,” the mag said.

Some women just have no self-respect. See the aforementioned Mrs. Clinton.

    In totally unrelated news, the management and staff of The Onion were found dead in their gas-filled offices, an apparent mass suicide.

    Wondering if she will be charged with felonious destruction of property, and sentenced to jail and/or restitution. Or will the French prove, yet again, that the world’s e;lite have a protocol of “Laws are for thee, not for me?”

    >>> “Laws are for thee, not for me?”

    You mean… like the laws in the United States?
