Arrested and deported redhead spy extraordinaire Anna Chapman is reportedly taking bids from reporters to have the first opportunity to interview her, according to Julia Ioffe’s Twitter stream. She’s also resumed posting to her incredibly popular Facebook profile following the UK decision to revoke her citizenship from her previous marriage.
Not exactly the behavior of a real stealth Mata Hari.
Update: A newspaper editor in Chapman’s hometown of Volgograd has organized a song contest to honor Russia’s latest celebrity. “Any scandal can end cheerfully, optimistically — for example with a good song,” Andrei Serenko, the editor of the Gorodskiye Vesti newspaper told Interfax.
