    How could they expect someone to live on such a mediocre amount. It's just sickening!
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    shes a cashaholic, how sad.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Maybe she should apply for food stamps? 53k per week is definitely below the poverty line.

    Heaven forbid she should actually have to go back to *gasp* work for her money. Crissakes! She was making $27M at her previous gig. His lawyers should give her the option of $43M or get your whining, entitled arse back to work for a couple years and bankroll your own retirement.

    I'd hit her ...

    No one ever considers that a yatch (and the sailors), the stables (and the stable boys), the limo (and the driver), the private jet (and the pilots, mechanics, groundcrew), the garden (and the groundskeeper) and so on and so forth cost a bit of change to upkeep.

    Don't make me yell at my butler to get me my phone, dial your number, and make him tell you what I really think of you all.

    I think you mis-read the article. It was her husband who was making $27mil a year and he still collects $1mil/yr after stepping down from CEO.

    I can't believe she spends $4500 a week on clothes! That's $230000 a year!!!

    Just think of all the bikes and bike stuff she could buy if she cut back on clothes
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Oops. My bad.
    Still doesn't change my stance on the offer I think she deserves, though. The proposition that $43M isn't enough to live on is ridiculous.

    she's not bad looking, but certainly doesn't look like $5,000+/week goes toward maintaining her looks...
    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.
