Anything she wants she gets and Najib is powerless, as all the reins of power are held by Malaysia's most powerful lady Rosmah Mansor.
She is already making Imelda Marcos and Maria Antoinette look like novices, she has Najib at her feet and the press at her beck and call.
She has appeared in the local dailies more often than Tun Siti Hasmaha has in Mahahtir's entire tenure as Prime Minister of Malaysia, she has proclaimed herself or has been bestowed the title by her fearful husband "The First Lady" of Malaysia.
Now has anyone else amongst our Prime Minister's wives ever, ever dared call themselves that? First lady!!!
Where did she get the audacity to let herself be referred to that way?
Did the Press suddenly decide to give her that title or were they asked to refer to her that way?
Whatever I say about Mahathir, I think Siti Hasmah was a fine wife of a Prime Minister and she carried out her responsibilities in the best manner fitting a Prime Minster's wife, and no one can deny that, she was graceful, a very motherly figure and the type that Rosmah can't stand up to. That is something I say without any reservations whatsoever. Even in all their political rivalry both she and Wan Azizah have a cordial relationship, and that is well known, not that they go out of their way to meet each other these days, but that is because of the kind of person she is -Siti Hasmah.
Anyway I think rosmah Abdul Jalil is about to alleviate herself, or go into some sort of hiding soon as it is rumoured that Sharizat Abdul Jalil has suddenly assumed so much power in her "stepping down deal" with Najib, that she would soon be in a position to pull the strings at Putrajaya.
What will happen to Rosmah then is anybody's guess, but Rosmah is no pushover either, especially as when it comes to Najib, so Sharizat Abdul Jalil has to make her moves without her knowledge, or she may just "see four" (whatever way you spell it) if you know what I mean.

Rosmah realises that there are somethings not right between her husband and Sharizat Abdul Jalil, but she is also aware of Sharizat's links with Mahathir and any sinister move against Sharizat may get her on the wrong side of Mahathir.
The talk in UMNO circles is that Mahathir feels she is an embarrassment to the party and the race, and they Rosmah and Mahahtir aren't all that close too. She is aware that Mahathir sees her as an irresponsible irritant, he is not used to highty flighty ladies and to him Rosmah is one.
