    Robert Eringer was blogging away with plenty of followers until he started penning blogs about Russian President Putin’s wife. Eringer calls the Russian President “Plutonium Putin” and has written that Putin’s wife is “missing,” “pregnant,” and even uploaded a photograph resembling a Where’s Waldo Cartoon dressed in prison outfits to suggest President Putin’s wife has been jailed. Eringer has since turned away his female audience, which could prove fatal for a blogger who thrives on collecting followers.

    “I used to follow his Twitter and Formspring posts,” says one woman who used to be associated with Eringer. “But his blog posts are too much lately. He’s got it out for women and posts disrespectful and even hateful things about the wives of people he dislikes. I don’t want to be associated with a guy like that—on or offline.”

    Robert Eringer has made a living consulting for various big-name enterprises and people, from Murdoch’s corrupt and now defunct News of the World to Ringling Brothers and the Feld Family, and, more recently, Prince Albert II of Monaco. But in an alarming series of blogs about President Putin’s wife, Eringer has shown he’s not a female-friendly blogger, and pointedly discredits women in his attacks against his opponents.

    “Vladimir Putin’s wife is the current target of Eringer’s posts, but prior to that it was Prince Albert of Monaco’s wife, Charlene Wittstock. It was Eringer who spread the ludicrous rumors that Charlene tried to flee the Principality rather than marry Prince Albert,” said an insider familiar with Eringer’s behavior. “Just look at the phrasing of his blog and you can see it’s the same diatribe over and over. Charlene was the Prisoner Princess. Now Lyudmila Putin is “missing” and “pregnant.” He’s clearly very disturbed.”

    This leads to the question: Does Robert Eringer Hate Women?

    “Most likely,” a psychologist familiar with the behavior of British paparazzi suggested. “Mr. Eringer is curiously silent about his own wife,” Elizabeth Eringer, “although he does post effusively doting blogs about his daughter, Claire Elizabeth Eringer, who’s married to Marcus Boyle and recently had a child.”
