Berlusconi tells women to find a rich man like him
Berlusconi tells women to find a rich man like himItalian Premier Silvio Berlusconi says women should follow the money when looking for a partner, noting that women seem to like him.
Mr Berlusconi (73), who was embroiled in a sex scandal last year and is known for his gaffes, also raised eyebrows with a joke about Hitler's followers urging him to return to power. The billionaire businessman appeared at a convention on Sunday of the youth wing of his People of Freedom party.
When questioned by one of his cabinet ministers he joked about marriages of convenience, saying women were lining up for him because "I'm a nice guy" and "I'm loaded". He also recalled a much-criticised TV interview he once gave, when "I said to a girl to look for a wealthy boyfriend.
"This suggestion is not unrealistic".
He also claimed women favour older men, thinking that "he's old. He dies and I inherit".
