Manuela Arcuri is being hailed as winner of the Italian Idol performance. The attractive 34 year old woman was contacted by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi with a proposal that he hoped would lead her to his bed. She was offered money and an opportunity to head a music festival, but Ms. Arcuri declined to sleep with the man who ordinarily receives a “yes” response to offers of the opportunity to have sex with him.
One blogger noted: “to know that she didn’t give herself to that dwarf is priceless. Another blogger put it this way: “it’s proof that in Italy there are still women with a sense of decency.” I guess this means Silvio is not Prince Charming–at least to one Italian woman!
