While many (who aren't white supremacists) are holding their breath for Emmanuel Macron to ride out the first round of France's election on Sunday and eventually take out right-wing euroskeptic Marine Le Pen for the presidency in the May 7th run-off, it wouldn't be very French without something titillating along the way While you may have already heard that the sexy 39-year-old former economy minister, has had to deny rumors that he's having an extramarital affair with Mathieu Gallet, the 40-year-old boss of Radio France. What you may not know is that he met his wife, 64-year-old Brigitte Trogneux, when she was his high-school French teacher when he was 15. By all accounts it was "love at first sight" -- French publications say the pair used to have long discussions together and she would read his writing to the class, which just happened to include her own 15-year-old son -- and at age 17 he asked her to marry him. (Trogneux, who also ran the drama club where Emmanuel was a budding thespian, was already married with three children when they met!)
Ooh la la!
