PARIS (AP) - France's first lady is making progress in a hospital, where she has been receiving care following a gossip magazine's report that President Francois Hollande was having a secret affair with an actress.

Valerie Trierweiler was hospitalized Jan. 9 for rest after Closer magazine reported about Hollande's alleged affair with actress Julie Gayet. It says he sneaked into an apartment near the presidential palace to meet her.

Trierweiler spokesman Patrice Biancone told The Associated Press by phone Thursday that the first lady was progressing, saying six days of rest "counts, after all."

Earlier, a Closer representative said Gayet had filed a lawsuit against the magazine for alleged invasion of privacy.

Hollande has expressed "indignation" about the report, but stopped short of saying whether he'd sue.
