London, Feb 6 (UNI) After French President Nicolas Sarkozy's wedding with ex-supermodel Carla Bruni, his former wife is rushing ahead with her wedding plans.
Friends of Cecilia said she was embittered after Sarkozy's wedding last week, just three months after their divorce.
She is going to tie the knot next month with millionaire publicist Richard Attias, with whom she had an affair during her marriage to the French President, her friends said.
One of them told French newspaper Le Figaro, ''She feels Sarkozy has embarrassed her by marrying a beautiful former model ten years her junior. Her wedding had been mooted for this summer, but now seems to have been moved forward,'' the Daily Mail reported.
Sarkozy's whirlwind romance with Bruni led to a series of harsh comparisons between the model and Cecilia.
Bruni was also accused of having rubbed salt into the former first lady's wounds by demanding the same engagement ring the President had given her 12 years earlier.
