Wendi Deng Murdoch: The Superhero Beside Rupert (PHOTOS)

    When I ran into Wendi Deng Murdoch last week at a screening of “Snow Flower And The Secret Fan,” a movie she produced, I asked her if she could attend my annual charity event, Art For Life, that is happening at my home in the Hamptons in two weeks. She said that she really wanted to come but unfortunately she couldn’t because she “has to go home and take care of her man.” Her man, of course, is Rupert Murdoch, the CEO and Chairman of News Corporation. Considering that the phone hacking scandal of News Of The World, her man’s newspaper, had become front page news all around the globe, I understood.

    Wendi has always been a sweet, compassionate person who supports many great causes. And although she is married to one of the most famous conservatives in the world, her politics are quite liberal and she even agreed to do a joint fundraiser with me in 2008 for President Barack Obama. Due to scheduling issues we were unable to make it happen, but she definitely wanted to do it.

    All of the antics in London yesterday made me crack a smile because finally the world is getting to know the wonderful woman and friend, who is Wendi Deng Murdoch. But let me be clear, what News of the World did was terrible and unfathomable, and I would never smile at the victim’s suffering caused by News Corp’s actions. I just want to celebrate Wendi who deserves credit and recognition for her great work around the world.
