Russian TV interviewed a spy working in the United States that could have come from the pages of Ian Fleming’s James Bond stories. Fleming, a one-time covert British agent himself, wrote about Bond working with incredible spy babes.
Anna Chapman, who obtained British citizenship via marriage, was recently ejected from the United States with 10 other spies and sent packing back to the motherland. Her interview on Russia’s “Let Them Speak” was the first time Chapman spoke publicly anywhere since being stripped of her British citizenship and sent packing from the United States.
On her TV debut in Russia, the host referred to her as “woman of the year,” and although Chapman probably has a lot to talk about, she kept the subject away from the investigation into her spying activity, steering toward more mundane topics. Chapman wants to be an actress, enjoys spy movies (really…) and likes Angelina Jolie. More than anything else, however, she wants a lion cub.
Although she didn’t talk about spying, she promised that all would soon revealed, as long as the Russian people stayed tuned to their television sets. According to the NY Daily News, Chapman said; “Next year I will reveal all my secrets.
Seems that at least the Russians will stay tuned-in as their newest “star” of reality TV meets real-life espionage. The “hero” of the story, who’s pictures appear in the January 2011 Playboy, wants to be an actress; she’s been booted from two democratic countries, but has aspirations to be Russia’s version of Angelina Jolie. Following a criminal investigation, Chapman was busted in–of all places–a Barnes & Noble by American intelligence agents, all she wants is to cuddle with her baby lion cub…
It doesn’t get any better than this.
