The Hunk Who Loved Lady Liberty: Fabio becomes U.S. citizen

18 March 2016

From CNN:

She’d played hard to get for years. But now, it was time — so what if it was in a convention center. She called to him. He rose, a red jacket covering his broad chest, hair swirling around wide shoulders as he moved. Then Fabio slowly raised one callused hand and said the words America had been longing to hear.

“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty …”

Yes, Fabio is now a U.S. citizen, the, uh, climax of a lengthy process that can take years to complete.

The Italian-born model, known for gracing the covers of countless bodice-ripping romance novels, took the Oath of Allegiance on Wednesday at the Los Angeles Convention Center, along with nearly 6,000 others from 140 countries, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

“America just got better hair,” agency spokeswoman Claire Nicholson tweeted Wednesday.

  1. Well, that’s a demeaning article. But I’m happy to welcome Fabio to our lovely land as a citizen. Now we can say, “I can’t believe he’s not Italian!” 🙂

  2. I think some of us have been at Citizenship ceremonies. They are often quite moving, with tears and smiles, and clapping and big smiles. It’s a very touching ceremony, esp to hear all the different accented English words, and some stumbling a bit over the words, and most everyone dressed as though they are going to a wedding.

  3. That’s a hell of a sneer in the OP.

    I’m glad that Fabio has found a home here in the US.
