    Congratulations! But I do wonder about qualifications for the USA diplomatic corps when these appointments are made. Will Forrester open a Budapest office? Can we send Brooke Logan there?

    funny stuff.

    considering… how ??? popular internationally B&B is…

    yeah… they need to ensconce the lauded… trampolina… and fans think sharon is.. but… I beg to differ on the exploits and/o exploitation of KKL.

    maybe… the new uber masculine take no prisoners… Ridge… will whip her in to shape… and render her submissive… oh wait.. she already is… to the forresters anyway

  3. Jeff says:

    What in her resume qualifies her to be Ambassador to Hungary??


  4. Mo says:

    What does an ambassador do? Will she move to Hungary? I guess giving parties for BO paid off.


  5. Jared says:

    I see a lot of art and charitable “board” type experience in the listing, but where is the political science, policy, diplomatic and Hungarian knowledge credentials? Perhaps she possesses these necessary qualities and they weren’t mentioned in this article, or is this another reward for left leaning political fundraisers?


    Patrick replied

    “…political science, policy, diplomatic and Hungarian knowledge credentials?”

    incredulous… to merit such grandiose

    I ask you: Ms. Bell

    These ambassadorships are fluff positions. They do nothing but have/go to parties and make nice with people. The President gives these positions away to people who give/raise a lot of money for them. So in that respect, she’s qualified :(
