Joumana Haddad informs her readers that she has heard of Simone de Beauvoir. Readers of An-Nahar went "Wow." (I don't understand why de Beauvoir is in the title: nothing in the whole article relates to anything that de Beauvoir ever said or wrote. Secondly, she states that her critics--you guessed right--are just jealous of her, and of her TV appearances. This is a well-known Lebanonese formula for enhancing self-esteem: you don't deserve criticisms, and if anybody dares to criticize you, it only means that he/she is jealous of you. OK)
