And now for the latest installment of...

...Anna Chapman.

Alright, folks, let's admit that the media have reached the point where anything that woman does is going to be news. And that's true even though she's back home in Mother Russia.

Chapman was interviewed by a Russian television program; and according to this report from Bloomberg, she said she will never admit to being involved in espionage. She also was given a lion cub as a gift.

That's right, a lion cub. (This BBC report includes a picture of the animal.)

According to the Associated Press,
The red-haired 28-year-old said on a talk show broadcast Thursday night on Channel One state television that she considers the failure of her mission a chance for new opportunities - though she declined to give details on what exactly her mission was.
The host of the program also appears to have become infatuated with Ms. Chapman, noting, “She is without exaggeration the woman of the year.” (Story from which that quote was taken can be accessed here.)

Of course, he just might be right.
