Newcomer Beppe Grillo's party scored an upset victory in Sicily last week...seemingly closing the casket on anciano Silvio Berlusconi's party revival effort.
But...now...like slippery Silvio...Beppe a former comic turned pol...is being called a 'medieval sexist'...after a female party member appeared on TV against his orders.
Beppe, 64...a prolific blogger and tweeter...lashed out at the woman's need for some 'Andy Warhol's 15 minutes of fame...'on TV...'as the G-spot which gives you an orgasm in talk show studios..."
His dismissive G-spot reference...apparently did not hit the right spot for many Italian women.
AND: Ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi is still up to his old tricks...picking an Argentine showgirl as a senate candidate.
The new candidate...singer and dancer Iliana Calabro, 46...lives in Buenos Aires and admits she 'doesn't speak Italian well.'
