Beabá dos divos

O público tem muita curiosidade em relação às informações biográficas dos divos.

Estas minibiografias, em inglês,  contém uma variedade de dados, inclusive biométricos (que também despertam muito interesse).

Acrescentei atualizações em relação ao estado civil. Dois divos solteiros se casaram (Sébastien e David) e Carlos, que era casado, se divorciou. E inseri o item “filhos”.

Não tenho meios para  atualizar as preferências pessoais que, ademais, devem ser creditadas à imaginação e criatividade de quem escreve.

Enfatizo que os divos são discretos no se refere à vida pessoal. Lembro que Urs adotou o silêncio total sobre sua intimidade, a partir de seu suposto relacionamento com Tania Rodney. Ele nunca falou, na primeira pessoa, sobre este assunto, nem tampouco sobre sua paternidade.

E como eu ando muita séria aqui, vou brincar um pouquinho: a palavra mais interessante foi acrescida por mim. E qual é?  “divorced”, of course!
