Geneviève Sabourin, the Quebec actress struggling with the American justice after her relationship with actor Alec Baldwin has committed a serious error and that is to be romantic rather than pragmatic. It is obvious that an international superstar like Baldwin can not be really interested in a young unknown actress. In life, nothing is free and if the offer is too good to be true, it usually is. Geneviève Sabourin was seduced by Baldwin but he did not. 
I could have find myself in the same situation as Geneviève as I have fallen in love many time with superstars that I met in my work. But I have a natural defense, I’m pragmatic and I always realized when the game was outside my qualifications. The English say: ‘Your are out of your league… ” At least three times, big stars have crossed my path and in my head I was thinking (a few hours) that maybe I was the man for the woman with whom I was sharing a little friendship . But I always reasoned quickly: I had nothing to offer to the star other than my good feelings of love, but life is not made of love and clear water… 
It is very sad that Genevieve has shattered her life because the game was unwinnable for her with Alec Baldwin. She had nothing else to offer to the great actor but love and water and, in real life, it is never enough!

Genevieve Sabourin and the American Justice

November 20, 2012

by Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1) – 
The Quebec actress Geneviève Sabourin will be in front of the American Justice in a week from now, on November 27, unless there is an out of court settlement. The accused is concerned about the objectivity of an eventual trial because the plaintive, the American actor Alex Baldwin, is considered an icon in New York and he is friends with several New York politicians. He is also the spokesperson for the campaign: “I love New York.” The story of Geneviève Sabourin is reminiscent of two other famous cases where defendants have both criticized the lack of objectivity of the justice system in the United States, that of Conrad Black and the Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s case Stay tuned!

The 35th Salon du livre de Montreal welcomes readers until Monday, November 19. More than 1700 writers are on site and they meet their readers. Among them we see stars like Kathy Reichs, Bishop Christian Lépine, Janette Bertrand, Denis Monette, Alain Lefèvre, Louise Penny, photographer Charles-Henri Debeur, Michelle Blanc and many others. But the real star of the show in 2012 is once again this year Kathy Reichs whose popularity is no doubt. You should have seen the line of fans outside his booth asking for a signature or photo while the author Denise Bombardier installed beside watched Kathy with a touch of envy… 
Also to notice at the Salon 2012 is the official guide published by La Presse. This 2012 guide will become a collector’s item, or good for the trash, because the date on the cover is wrong and mentions that the show runs from November 16 to 21 when it ends November 19th…

I have always said that I’m not a romantic and I consider myself a pragmatist. There is however one occasion where I am a romantic in the heart and that is when I walk through the city behind a beautiful unknown girl. When our steps separate, I am always nostalgic to think that, probably, our paths will cross again no more…
