Can you believe this? He fathered a child? And the crazed people in California didn’t vote for Meg Whitman because she fired a maid as soon as she found out the maid was not in the U.S. legally?
For once, IFO is speechless. Maria will survive this blow, but don’t for a minute think it will be easy. In spite of the goings-on in her own family, we suspect she felt safe from all that way out in California.
Why do we care about tawdry Hollywood gossip on this personal finance blog? Because divorce is a major cause of poverty, even though probably not in this particular case, which is why Hollywood types seem to do this kind of thing with impunity. With their millions, they can afford it FINANCIALLY. But they are humans with parents and children and a past, present and future. They WILL pay emotionally and psychologically.
So, beware. Don’t do anything you’ll be sorry for later. IFO’s readers are highly unlikely to be in the ranks of the elite. You can’t copy them and get away with it without being horribly scarred for life.
NOTE: In our comments on DSK, we forgot to mention Eliot Spitzer, Client Number 9. From governor of New York to failing cable tv show – how far down can you fall? And he still has a long way to go.
As IFO’s DDH often said: Evil is conserved.
