The theme of this Muckety map could well be people who’ve received unwanted scrutiny.

Jocelyne Perisse had such drastic plastic surgery over the years that she became known in the press as the “Bride of Wildenstein.”

She was married to the wealthy art dealer Alec Wildenstein, brother of Guy Wildenstein, friend of Nicolas Sarkozy, former president of France.

Sarkozy married model Carla Bruni in 2008, four years before he was voted out of office.

The brothers Wildenstein have had their share of unflattering press coverage, with allegations that the family profited from precious art stolen from Jewish owners by the Nazis during World War II.

As leader of France, Sarkozy was a constant target of critics. Some of it concerned his connection to the Wildensteins.

When French authorities demanded $330 million in back taxes from Guy Wildenstein, many wondered if his campaign contributions to Sarkozy had slowed the investigation.
