Just five days ago it was reported in the UK's Daily Express that she sold 88 Avenue Foch, which was one of the most famous Onassis addresses. Aristotle spent his final hours there before being taken to the American hospital of Paris where he died. That apartment was supposedly bought by him as a place to hideout his mistress Maria Callas. Christina used the apartment much later and some of Athina's earliest memories are from there. A lot of misery haunts that place, said the Daily Express article, a possible reason Athina wanted to wash her hands of it.

Despite what the media always said about her refusing to learn to Greek, or being discouraged from learning it, growing up...I cannot believe that she has not picked up a fairly decent communication ability in the language over the course of her whole life. With all the interactions (the greek cousins, the "greybeards," the equestrian acquaintances) I cannot believe she has had such a limited exposure to Greek as the media would have us believe. For crying out loud, she represents Greece officially now in all her show jumping competitions and she is signed up on the Greek Olympic training team. She surely talks to her Greek coaches and her Greek team members! Not to mention the interactions, however unpleasant, between her and the Onassis Foundation. Also, she was educated in Switzerland in a school that teaches according to the French BAC system and in that system, I believe, students have to learn the ancient languages Latin and Greek.

in all the articles I've read and the people I have talked to who know Athina in Monaco or Paris, non have ever said she didn't want to learn to speak Greek or that she isn't trying, she's been taking classes, she just didn't start soon enough and Greek it's one of the hardest languages to learn. the board doesn't have a problem with Athina but with her father, he was excluded from it and he has fought hard and may I say a bit dirty for that money to go to Athina in exchange the board blames him for not keeping Athina close to her greek roots. now that Athina wants to be in charge of the board, the board it's being very careful that she meets all the requirements according to greek law, you have to realize that when and if Athina gets to be in charge of the organizations she would need to carry the Onassis legacy and that's a very hard thing to do, especially when she has tried to distance herself from all that at certain times.
the people of the board or the "greybeards" as they are called do not "hate" Athina, they just feel she still has long ways to go before she can take charge of the organizations, I mean for pete's sake people, Christina, Athina's mother was the one that left them in charge so they could keep on developing these organizations...
....also I just want to say that when I was younger I saw Athina and her father quite often at riding events and he was nothing but loving and affeccionate to her and her sister, they have had some rough times and he could have always been controlling but we will never know that for sure, so STOP with all these silly rumors and taking sides when you haven't even seen these people with your own eyes

Um, actually I have been watching Athina since she was a little girl and I never took sides. In fact, I always prayed that her relationship with her father and her whole family, especially gaby and siblings, would always be great. Additionally, I know very well how much the "greybeards" resent Thierry for all of the bad (yes, selfish) choices he made.

My problem with the "greybeards" now is that they CLAIM to want what is best for Athina, when in actuality, it is their OWN INTERESTS they want to protect. Papaidimitriou says Athina is not "GReek enough" to be President of the foundation. Who is "Greek enough?" His son? Grandson? His friends?
I won't say anymore on this but please try not to judge me. I won't do it to you, I promise. We are all coming from a unique perspective. We could observe the same things but have entirely different reactions. I suppose now I "take sides" because I see a bunch of grown up old men trying taking on a 20-year-old woman in a battle to control a lotta freakin' money. Because whatever the Foundation is about, it boils down to money in the end. and power.

But returning to fashion...

Athina in 2004 wearing Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses. Personally, I gotta say "nay" to these sunglasses... and her blouse too. Actually, they may be from D&G by Dolce... I know Athina's never been known to be much of a fashion girl, if any kind of fashion girl, but I like some of her choices: the blonde highlights, for example. She wears cute tee shirts and jeans but it's so rare to see her in anything besides jodhpurs.

Is it just me or does she sometimes look like a young Kirstie Allen? There's something in the way she carries herself and poses.
