Berlusconi asks ambassadors to bring pretty girls to Italy

"Bring some good-looking girls over some time. We would appreciate them because we are Latins," the 73-year-old told a gathering of ambassadors and business leaders from nearly 30 Mediterranean countries in Milan.

"But not playboys, as in my case, I've become a 'play-old'," he added with a grin. Last year, Berlusconi's wife filed for divorce over revelations that the media tycoon attended the 18th birthday party of an aspiring model who called him "Daddy".

Berlusconi was also forced to deny paying for sex after a call-girl disclosed publicly she had spent the night with him, recorded conversations with him and filmed his bedroom with her mobile phone.
