French First Lady Carla Bruni once revealed to Michelle Obama that she and husband Nicolas Sarkozy — who are "notorious for turning up late to official events" — had once kept a head of state waiting while they finished having sex, according to Jonathan Alter's upcoming book, The Promise. Bruni reportedly asked Obama if she and Barack had ever done that before, and Obama "laughed nervously and said no," because she is not French. [Daily Mail UK]
