Paroubek’s So-Called Lover Blogs

In Media, Politics on August 20, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

Talk about jumping to fame.

A few weeks ago nobody knew who Petra Kovacova is. Until the former PM Jiri Paroubek said she is his partner slash girlfriend. She worked in his team as a translator. And she became famous after a top-class Czech lawyer hired by Paroubek wrote a letter to a tabloid daily, asking them NOT to call Kovacova by the term “lover”.

Sure, anyone can blog. But the timing and coincidence is just plain weird. The fact that somebody sleeps with the former PM doesn’t seem to me as good-enough qualification for a celebrity blogger.

And here we have it, a few weeks later, Kovacova has been given a blogger space by Aktualne.cz news server, space that is given to noted Czech personalities. Or, if not noted then at least somewhat known. Like journalists, scientists, actors, politicians.
