Carla Is Badly Brought Up Says Bardot


Byline: From Peter Allen in Paris

THEY are two of France's most famous sex symbols. But apparently that is all Brigitte Bardot and Carla Bruni have in common.

Miss Bardot has made a stinging attack on France's First Lady, saying: 'She's as beautiful as she is badly brought up'.

The tiff between the two was prompted, somewhat appropriately, by an argument over a designer handbag.

Miss Bardot, 75, sent Miss Bruni, 42, a special edition Lancel bag from the new 'BB' range made in honour of the And God Created Woman star.

Miss Bardot, an animal rights campaigner, meant the handbag as a gift for Miss Bruni, whom she admired for not wearing fur in public.

But Miss Bruni, pictured with Miss Bardot, failed to say thank you - prompting the furious reaction.

Miss Bardot was also annoyed that Miss Bruni had not put pressure on her husband, President Nicolas Sarkozy, to try to outlaw bullfighting in the south of France. Interson viewed by the magazine France Dimanche for an article due to appear on Sunday, Miss Bardot said: 'I have received no thank-you note whatsoever from Carla Bruni, who is as beautiful as she is badly brought up.

'I would like before I die, to see the changes I've always fought for being made. If not, my life will have been worth nothing.

'But I'm like a pit bull - when I start to bite someone I don't let go easily.' Concerning the bull fight ban, Miss Bardot said she had also written a scathing letter to Mr Sarkozy earlier this month. She said: 'My anger is only just starting!

'I've been waiting for him to deliver on his promises for more than three years. I've only received vague and unconvincing responses, in the image of the per who wrote them.
