If you go to People.com, at press time the “most read” article is about the Italian Queen and her revelations to Italian Vanity Fair about life with George Clooney. Bristol Palin dumping Levi Johnston will probably overtake Elisabetta but the point is, the MiniVan is reading The WhiteWash. And she needs the whitewashing very badly.

The Italian Queen tells VF that George indulges her, is always “very close” to her, that she’s never been treated like this, so considerately, before in her life. He is keeping her young.

“I feel good, I feel light. Like when I was 18 years old. I am happy like I was when I was 18 years old. Those who criticize or invent stories about us are just jealous."

The IQ goes on to say that she doesn’t care about malicious blogs, that a certain Italian site that attacks her reflects what she says is a common Italian habit of not supporting their own when they become successful abroad. As for the pressure of being known as the woman loved by George Clooney, Ely explains:

"Yes, it is true. We are together. I have heard of women – even famous women – that due to this [relationship] removed his photo as screensavers from their computers. Maybe I am a bit stressed. But in the end the best revenge over these jealous people is to be happy. Because that is the thing they do not forgive you for. If you are loved, you always feel beautiful. It's the idea of being loved like this which really surprises me."

You know that the Canalis cocaine and prostitution scandal has made headlines everywhere. Huffpo covered it, newspapers covered it, everyone covered it... but People.com in this piece, with plenty of relevant opportunity to address the situation, or at least mention it, doesn’t allude to the scandal at all. Of course not. People has camped out inside George’s ass for years.

Let’s get back to the amazingness that is our Italian Queen who is now giving interviews, who is allowed to speak of their life together, who is publicly discussing their relationship. Sarah Larson wasn’t allowed to even look at a reporter without permission. But Ely gets a lot of rope, non? Maybe because she lets him pull it very tight elsewhere, tighter than any of the ones before her. She really is setting a new standard.
