The union lifestyle of Syria’s first lady

Asma Assad, first lady of Syria, is known for her guilded lifestyle. At least that’s what the writer for Yahoo! Shine alleges:

What isn’t known is the actual definition of a “guilded lifestyle.” A guild is an association of people in the same trade, like a union. Perhaps she should be known for a gilded lifestyle — one, metaphorically speaking, covered in gold.

    Sounds like someone from the Lollipop Guild wrote that article.

      The original article was riddled with errors. I just picked one because it would have taken me until Christmas to document them all. It has since been edited — sort of. But it still reads like it was written by a tween.

    The tables have turned. When Yahoo! Shine starts doing unflattering pieces about Mrs Assad, you know the party’s over (irregardless of whether or not the 2011 Vogue article was favorable)/
