Twins mania - including tabloid tales of nude hotel romps and serious security lapses - has gripped the media in Buenos Aires, where Jenna and Barbara Bush celebrated their 25th birthday over the Thanksgiving weekend.
ABC News reported that U.S. Embassy officials "strongly suggested" the twins cut short their trip, but they refused.
The embassy called the report "false."
