WTF Friday Edition while DC This Week is on HOLD
Seriously? The Smoking Gun has the update on a gold digger who is unhappy with a $43 million post-nuptial agreement. Get the full skinny HERE. A Connecticut woman is arguing in court that she deserves a bigger piece of her industrialist husband's fortune, in part to help offset weekly expenses totaling a whopping $53,000. With the rest of the country mired in an economic crisis, the divorce fight between Marie Douglas-David, 36, and George David, 66 (wait he is 30 years older than her. Ummmmmmmmmmmm), might appear more unseemly than those recent AIG bonuses.
David, is a former chief executive at United Technologies worth more than $325 million. His wife is a former banker who has been described as a Swedish countess. Douglas-David spends $53,826 every week. Maintaining several homes (including a Park Avenue apartment and a year-round Hamptons rental) and dropping $4500 for clothing, $8000 for travel, $1000 for "Haircare/skincare," and $650 on dry cleaning bills every week has a way of adding up.
