Silvio: Bring pretty girls

ITALIAN Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi lived up to his playboy reputation again this week, saying men from Latin countries can “appreciate pretty girls” and asking foreign ambassadors to bring some over.

“Bring some good-looking girls over some time. We would appreciate them because we are Latins,” the 73-year-old told a gathering of ambassadors and business leaders from nearly 30 Mediterranean countries in Milan.

“But not playboys, as in my case, I’ve become a ‘play-old’,” he added with a grin.

Last year, Berlusconi’s wife filed for divorce over revelations that the media tycoon attended the 18th birthday party of an aspiring model who called him “daddy”.

Berlusconi was also forced to deny paying for sex after a call-girl disclosed publicly she had spent the night with him, recorded conversations with him and filmed his bedroom with her mobile phone.
