    Jim Nantz divorce testimony is equally sad and funny.

    Friends, always sign a pre-nup.

    I must have missed the humor. Didn't find any at all in there. Very sad.

    His wife put in the years. Jim just has to suck it up and pay half.

    Doesn't sound like cheating ruined the marriage, but whatever. Marriages fall apart.

    What drives me insane is this garbage:
    Her full head? As opposed to half her head? Cascading hair...how does hair cascade, when it's not in salacious gossip stories? Hair has to go somewhere, is it really cascading? Why not tumbling? Or spewing? Finally, the designer coat. Did the writer check the label? Which designer? Was Jim wearing a designer suit? Did the judge have designer shoes?

    Just report the freaking story.

    As Westport neighbor Imus might put it, "Two crybaby, thumbsucking pantloads."

    I thought the bit about the oil painting was funny. And how she couldn't describe what a recently bought $12,000 piece of jewelry looked like.
  9. Right on 21. Talk about editorializing; definitely a pro-Jim Nantz lean to that one.

    But overall, I don't see anything funny about the situation. It's fucking sad when a family dissolves over 10 years and finally stops being a family. I want to hear her side of it too. Nantz is putting out a lot of whoa-is-me and maybe it's all true, but before you pass judgment you need to hear more than she was a big spender. Why didn't she support him? Her deciding not to travel isn't non-support, it's deciding to raise the kid. Yeah yeah, they have a nanny.

    My call: Either way, he's fooked. The guy gets fooked all 9 times outta 10.

    That said, why is it so hard? Cut it in half and move on. He can't make it on 10 million sted 20?
    That's just a general thought, not a Jim Nantz comment.

    I hear you Inky but I found that more sad than funny. She's clearly bought a LOT from that joint, probably could keep a team of shrinks going for years about trying to replace what's missing in the marriage with material rewards yada yada.

    21, dead on. If that's ever me - "the lights beaming off his bald head ****"

    Most of us will never know why it's difficult for a millionaire to give up half his money -- even if it still makes him a millionaire after the fact.

    I'd like to think I'd have the brains to just give up half and move on, but who knows? He's worked pretty hard for that money; probably spent a lot of time away from his kid in the process.
  12. Mod1 -- it is less difficult to cut in half and move on if you're a "Nantz" making $10M. Not so for those of us not making $10M (not speaking from experience either).

    <opening huge can of worms> But this woman apparently didn't 100% raise the kid (her reason for not traveling, and apparently not working) and I'm sure Nantz didn't step on her throat and tell her not to get her ass down to Target and apply for that cashier opening. Gripes my ass that he has to give her alimony because "she put in the time" as someone above said.

    He absolutely should support that daughter (set her up for life if he can), but I don't think he owes the wife much more. If he's 100% telling the truth, where's his compensation for putting in the time in a loveless, lifeless marriage the last 10 years?

    Thought so. Hopefully the judge is a wise man.
