Valerie Trierweiler remains in a Paris hospital after learning last week that longtime boyfriend and French president Francois Hollande cheated on her, but France's quasi first lady did not attempt suicide and is "ready to forgive" the politician.

Trierweiler was prescribed 10 days of rest as a "preventative measure" on Friday after French magazine Closer ran a seven-page spread on Hollande's alleged affair with actress Julie Gayet. The story contained photos of a man reported to be Hollande visiting Gayet's home.

Despite reports that she attempted to end her life, sources close to Trierweiler say she was hospitalized for depression and extreme fatigue, according to The Telegraph.

"She seems prepared to forgive [him]; she doesn't want to slam the door on a whim," a "close friend" of Trierweiler told Le Parisien newspaper, according to The Telegraph. "But she wants to know very quickly what Francois Hollande's intentions are."

Hollande reportedly came clean about his relationship with Gayet to Trierweiler Thursday night.

"In a few words, the president acknowledged the existence of [his affair]," Le Parisien reporter Frédéric Gerschel wrote. "He denied nothing — neither his moped escapades with a bodyguard in the middle of the night, nor the frequency of his secret rendezvous or that the secret 'love affair' started several months ago."

Hollande and Trierweiler began dating in 2005 and she assumed the duties of France's first lady when he took office in 2012. But according to a poll run by political weekly newspaper Le Point, 89 percent of the French feel Hollande "should announce his separation from Valerie Trierweiler" in light of the recent revelations.

"The President has to make a rapid decision [in favor on one woman or the other]," an unnamed source reportedly told Le Monde newspaper, as per The Telegraph. "If he does so, the French will not hold it against him. [Until then] any appearance of Valerie by his side will appear hypocritical… That would be unbearable."
