Elizabeth Thieriot, French TV Star
Elizabeth Thieriot in Tiburon

This week we suddenly received thousands of readers from France. When we looked into the logs to see what brought them here, it was clear they had arrived through a Google search for Elizabeth Thieriot. So what on earth did Elizabeth do to capture the attention of the great nation of France?

She starred in a French TV documentary that aired on Tuesday.

Called “Stars et Fortunes,” the filmmakers followed Sylvester Stallone, Christian Audigier, Thieriot and others as an exploration of the lives of the “rich and famous.” They were interested in her because, as a victim of domestic violence in the past, she has used her money to help other battered women.
