Millionaires' Ex-Wives Club

Recommended Posts

Did anyone see it on BBC2 last night? I'm guessing not many as dosboders don't like to pay the TV tax. Anyway, this is what it was about:

Quote

Lisa is a well-groomed divorcee from a wealthy Iranian family, who lives in an opulent Mayfair house bought for her by her dad. Lisa’s huge independent fortune came in handy when she divorced her multimillionaire husband.

Film-maker Lynn Alleway (Camila’s Kids Company) follows Lisa as she changes into various outfits and goes out for lunch with her friends, and, latterly, to her latest birthday party choreographed by her new love, a man who earns his money doing something with executive jets.

Initially Lisa wanted £120 million from her husband, but settled for considerably less to put an end to endless, expensive court battles. Meanwhile Michelle was awarded £26 million when she divorced her husband, but never received a penny as he claimed he’d lost it all.

 

I found them (the ex wives) to be truely vulgar and quite repulsive. I'm not full on commie/socialist, I don't have problem with some people being richer than others.

But when for your 52nd birthday the entrance has lifesize cardboard cutouts of yourself and your birthday cake is a giant chocolate egg to smash open that contains a bust of yourself, I have to think is that really the best way to consume the planets resources?

Oh, and being the So-Called BBC they only spoke to the wives, not the husbands to get the other side of the story.

Just read the synopsis and I think I'd rather have bowel surgery in the woods with a stick than watch that.

If I were a seriously wealthy man rather than the skint wanker with an xbox as an asset that I am, I would be exquisitely wary about getting married. Especially after I'd already made my money.

That said, some of these women are so fucking horrific, you've got to wonder about the standard of bloke that saw fit to marry them in the first place.

I obviously didn't see it for the reasons stated but I see these people as being chavs with money who validate their existence by consuming to demonstrate their material wealth; I don't think of them as "posh".

The small number of really posh people I have known are similar to Stanley Johnson (Boris Johnson's dad) who, being comfortable with themselves and having nothing to prove, wear decent but old clothes, take an active interest in other people rather than telling you about themselves, and tend to run down their achievements and wealth rather than bragging about them.

An acquaintance at college, when it came out that he lived in a stately home, immediately launched into how rubbish the heating was and how he spent half his day fetching coal for the fires and it was still cold and how he would much prefer to live in a normal house.

+1million 

I was brought up in a large house (not exactly stately, rural 27 rooms) and only ever remember it being bloody cold apart from the study (that isn't any bigger than my living room today) where we all huddled together. Other than the kitchens (one big, one small) and bedrooms (in use) the rest of the house for was left redundant apart from the big sitting room that was used for Christmas Day only and that took a week of heating to bring it up to temperature and drive out the damp. I too have fond memories of trudging down to the coal shed with hod and shovel in hand but otherwise no thanks.

You haven't joined the grumpy 50+ club yet, obviously. I would be unable to stomach more than 2 minutes of such a programme.

Not my choice of viewing, I was too tired to argue so ended up watching it.

I'll admit it was kind of interesting in a way, not in a 'look at them they are so wonderful' or 'those poor things' but a "I wonder what sort of mental health issues they have, how much more plastic surgery can your body tolerate and how many of your friends would be around you if you were truely poor and living on a council estate".

Making programmes about these poeple just feeds their habit and addiction to attention seeking.

i was on it did you see me?

I have 50 overcoats.

I wear them all at once so i am actually a tramp.

If i wore them one at a time i would be a millionaire.

This sounds like the stupidest TV program ever made, with the most idiotic people. These people will be dinner to the masses at some point.

This.

You can't buy intelligence or class.

Seeing how someone handles the money in their life, regardless of how much they have, speaks volumes about that person.

In my youth I used to play in function bands that did a lots of posh weddings and bar mitzvahs in posh London hotels.

Did a bar mitzvah at Claridges near Park Lane for a kid called Josh whose dad held all the UK commercial rights to Jurassic Park (or something like that). Any cups, Tshirts etc sold with a T-rex's head on it and he go a cut, and was filthy rich as you can imagine.

Anyway - on entry to this party there was a Double life-size ice sculpture of the kid in question staring at you as you came in. As he greeted everyone in the hotel foyer, he had basically a drop-dead gorgeous porn-star on each arm.

But to top it all, right at the end as everyone was leaving he and the porn stars each had a pump gun firing what looked like tennis balls into the crowd. I caught one and took it to my car not thinking that much about it - just wanted to get home. Curiosity got the better of me when I got back and I opened it up and to my dismay it was a t-shirt with that kid's boat race on it and 'Josh - superstar' written underneath.

What the fuck's wrong with 10 pin bowling and a bit of pizza?

No wonder so many rich kids grow up to be cunts.

Edit - the t-shirt got used to wash the car

Hate it when I run out of reps, I'll be back later to add one. Great post.

The kids primary school have started doing a "prom night" for the leavers. One of the parents on the periphery of our circle of friends suggested a whip round for getting the (11 year old) kids a limousine, fortunately there was nothing but dismissive laughter from everyone else.

What 11 year old even wants to have a formalwear "prom night"? You have to ask yourself, who is it actually for?

Pah.

On my 18th my mum made me a Fray Bentos pie for my tea.

I gave up eating meat pretty much straight after that.

Which porn stars?

Some look well dodgy.

Yes i saw it, the wife whose ex husband topped himself looks pure evil, the stretched head look is not a good one.

What i dont get is why these men with all this money who could get some top drawer totty go for these aggressive failed model types.

Fucken idiot turned down £30 million quid this is how up herself she is, and now will be made bankrupt unless she finds some other rich bloke to whore herself out to. Got to feel sorry for the kids though.

Surely anyone willing to be on a programme like that had to be a monumental bell end?

When I was a kid I came across the saying "a gentleman doesn't wear his wealth on his back". At the time I never really understood it, but in my maturity I assume it means if you have money don't flaunt it. 

Imho, the flasher the car the more likely someone is to be a bell end.

I've worked for some very wealthy blokes and all have been divorced at least once. The business I am in now, the 40% co-owner was convinced by his wife (the ex-sandwiches-in-the-back-of-an-estate-car-seller) to sell up so they could spend time together. She is younger. 6 years later and after building their dream home together (flattened a house and built a McMansion in its place), she has booted him out that house, wants half of his 2 other houses and half his money. Never earned more than NMW her whole life, saw him coming. He is probably worth about £15million. Still wants him to ferry her about, go on holidays etc. The other owner (60%, later 100%) got screwed by his ex-missus too. He often complains the last 15 years has basically just been working to get himself back to where he was 15 years prior.

I love this story. :D

I met a few people who'd fit this description when I lived in Cuntingham, Oxfordshire. Utter bellends with stratospheric amounts of money to burn. I'm a capitalist but it really was an absolute fucking obscenity. The thing that always surprised me, for the most part, was that they were as thick as pigshit. Rightly or wrongly, I always equated money with intelligence...or at least a businesslike brain. I don't think some of the people I met had mastered wiping their own arses yet.

I detested them on a molecular level.

Well hes daft.

Once you get 5m+ you move stuff to trusts and live off money granted to you bythe trust.

If you get divorced the trust is ringfenced.
