So I go to MSN to check my email and end up seeing this tawdry headline, Divorce drama Wife, 37, wants $99M from much older husband, right on the front page. Somehow I can't seem to keep myself from reading it.
Well, first my preconceived notion was wrong. I had assumed that she was was the one leaving him. The husband, George David, 67, was actually the one with the girlfriend. He's worth close to 300 million. But she's a Swedish countess. And he complained that she was too bossy. Did he really expect royalty to be quiet and easy to manage?!
Anwyay, I won't get into all that. What got me was her expenses. The article says that Marie Douglas-David's "needs are not simple" and they aren't joking.
Her weekly expenses are $53,000.00. Weekly! This includes $8,000.00 for travel, $4,000-plus for clothing, $1,500 for restaurants, $1,000 for hair and skin and $600 for flowers.
I'm getting ready to go food shopping and am happy that I was able to find a Smart Balance coupon. $53k is an annual income, not weekly expenses! $8k a week to travel. Where does she need to go every week? Can I just scream now??
