“Neither enemy nor friends. But a bond linked to a common experience”. In his new book, Valérie Trierweiler talks about his relationship with Brigitte Macron and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. A few months ago, the three women gathered at the Elysée palace for a lunch. If the journalist does not wish to unburden himself on this point, she concedes that “yes, it was nice, yes, it was funny, yes, there would be so many things to unveil”.

As of 2012, while the atmosphere between Nicolas Sarkozy and François Hollande was already quite chilly, the first ladies seemed to get closer. “Among women, things are more simple, and then there was no question of being able to […]. We talked about things quite intimate immediately,” said the journalist at the micro Europe 1. Valérie Trierweiler tells openly: the common experience of the first ladies has woven between them a fixed connection.

She confides this in his book: “Bridget, Carla and I share experiences, we have experienced moments that are comparable. We are modern women and independent, but so dissimilar”. Dissimilar especially in terms of political opinions. “I don’t know what are the political positions of Carla Bruni but you know who is her husband […]. She rather share the ideas of her husband, but not on everything,” said Valérie Trierweiler on Europe 1. She, on the other hand, says bluntly: “Yes, I’m really left.”

A sense of solidarity

of the sensitivities Of different policies that do not prevent the three women exchange from time to time. Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Valérie Trierweiler have joined forces to help a young woman suffering from a rare disease to begin in the modeling, when Brigitte Macron – at the request of the journalist – hosted in the Elysée of high school students from disadvantaged backgrounds. A certain solidarity exists between the three women, particularly in the face of attacks Brigitte Macron has recently been the subject. The reporter from Paris Match says, “often, cruel, inhuman, based on false information”.

The former companion of François Hollande recalled that she had also suffered such attacks during his visit to the Elysée palace. She had then crossed over to the test, “based on [its] children. The family, it is the essential pillar of our life.” Today, Valérie Trierweiler is said to happy and in love. She admits that she would “not be able to stay for five years captive to the Elysée in a position as vulnerable as the one which was [hers]”. She enjoys now her new-found freedom. The “new” are rather good.
