The Lady In Pink

Why do these old rich guys always wind up with young sexy trophy wives?  Simple, because they are rich....I would like to feel sorry for old Rupert Murdoch( who owns FOX NEWS, one of this blogs favorite targets)but you know of course that I don't.

You know I'm enjoying this...He's in the hot seat now because one of the tabloid papers, The News of the World was forced to shut it's doors because of a phone hacking scandal....Mr. Murdoch has been called to the carpet because of it... Yesterday someone tried to throw a pie at him....No...I can't make this stuff up!.

Like the volleyball player she used to be ,The spouse of media mogul Rupert Murdoch is no pushover. Murdoch's 42-year-old wife, Wendi Deng, who had been sitting right behind her husband during an inquisition with the House of Commons Select Committee on Tuesday, leaped forward to stop a protester from smashing a pie into her husband's face.

The protester, covered in white foam, was hauled away and the session was suspended.

No sooner had Deng straightened her pink couture jacket, Twitter and Facebook messages buzzed worldwide, ranging from “Go Wendi go” to “Wendi Deng. Tiger Wife!”

The chairman of the parliamentary committee even commented on her defense skill: "Mr. Murdoch, your wife has a very good left hook," The Hollywood Reporter reported.

The old man and his son, James Murdoch, had spent the day repeatedly telling (or rather lying to)British lawmakers that they were not responsible for a phone hacking scandal that has rocked the Murdoch empire.

II-The Scandal!

Starting in 2006, there were allegations that certain individuals working for the News of the World, a British Sunday-only tabloid newspaper published by News International—a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation—had engaged in phone hacking.

The scandal came to prominence in the midst of an attempted takeover of British Sky Broadcasting by News Corporation, which was forced to abandon the acquisition. While the original allegations were limited to the hacking of celebrities, politicians and members of the British Royal Family, further allegations that victims of the phone hacking included murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler, relatives of deceased British soldiers, and victims of the July7th London bombings generated widespread public outrage in the United Kingdom. The News of the World published its final edition on 10 July 2011 after 168 years of publication.

On 6 July 2011, British prime minister David Cameron declared that a public government inquiry would convene to investigate the affair, once police inquiries had been completed.

On 13 July, David Cameron named Lord Justice Leveson as chairman of the inquiry, with a remit to look into the specific claims about phone hacking and police bribery by the News of the World, while a separate inquiry would consider the culture and ethics of the British media. He also said the Press Complaints Commission would be replaced "entirely".

The scandal attracted attention in the United States, where News Corporation is headquartered and operates a multitude of media outlets. On 15 July, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed that the Department of Justice was following up calls for an investigation into the company.

III-Just Who is Wendy Deng?

Old man Murdoch might be asked to step down.....I understand he could lose a pile in this deal, if he's not already losing a pile...Good....His FOX NEWS has been responsible for so much mis-information that any part of his huge media dynasty that falls is good news to me.  I guess you can tell that I don't like the man, can't you?

But for some reason...I like his wife, Wendi Deng....Born in Jinan, Shandong some 42 years ago, she was originally named Wenge Deng. She is the third of four children (three daughters, one son) born to engineers. Wendi Deng attended the local Xuzhou First Secondary School and Xuzhou No. 1 Middle School.

She developed a strong interest in playing volleyball. While Deng was in high school, her father relocated to Hangzhou, where he was employed at the People's Machinery Works; she and her family remained behind for a short while. In 1985, when she was 16 years old, Deng enrolled in Guangzhou Medical College.

In 1987,Wendi Deng met an American businessman and his wife, Jake and Joyce Cherry who had temporarily relocated to China to help build a refrigerator factory.Wendi Deng asked the couple for tutoring lessons in English, which Joyce eventually provided. A decision that would prove to be bad...For Mrs.Cherry as you will see.

In 1988, she abandoned her medical studies and traveled to the United States to study, with the Cherrys sponsoring Wendy's student visa. Deng enrolled at California State University, Northridge, where she studied economics and was among the top 1% of students.

After studying at Cal State Northridge, Wendy Deng attended business school at Yale University.

Fast forward a few years and we find that after she entered the United States, Wendy
lived with the Cherry family for a while when attending university. Mrs. Cherry suspected her husband was having an affair with Deng (30 years his junior) and demanded she leave the house. Mr. Cherry soon followed and moved in with her. See, I can't make this stuff up...It's just too easy.

Mr. Cherry and Wendy got married in 1990. Didn't you see that coming? Wendy Deng and  Josh Cherry's marriage lasted just 2 years and 7 months before they were legally divorced, and he would later explain they only stayed together for 4 or 5 months, after which he learned of the extramarital relationship Deng had with David Wolf.
As James Brown once said- ''A woman's got to use what she's got to get just what she wants...Hot Pants!" Indeed!

Nonetheless, she was now able to secure a green card through being legally married to Mr. Cherry.( I'll bet he felt so used! )In 1997, Wendy Deng then met Rupert Murdoch at a company party in Hong Kong. Wendy and Rupert married in 1999, less than three weeks after his divorce from ex-wife Anna Maria Torv Murdoch Mann was finalized.

They live in Manhattan with their two daughters: Grace Helen Murdoch (born 2001) and Chloe Murdoch (born 2005). Wendy Deng is pro-vegan and Rupert is too rich and powerful for her to leave...Especially since , although she is still somewhat hot, she's over forty now and has two kids and you know how that goes.

That's what I call pulling yourself up by your ...uh bra straps!
