The Financial Acumen Of Trophy Wives

Trophy wives: there are few things to say about their morals, but their financial acumen is unimpeachable, says Daily Beast blogger (and former NY Daily News gossip columnist) Johanna Piazza.

Piazza figures that women like Katie Lee Joel, Anna Nicole Smith, Marla Maples and Heather Mills are only wives to men decades their senior for a few years. They’re stinkin’ rich divorceés, however, for the rest of their lives. A younger woman who shacks up with an old fart will suffer “bimbo” or “whore” name-calling left and right, but she’s actually quite savvy for parlaying a short-term investment as a Mrs. into long-term benefits as an Ex.

Though, admittedly, I’m biased. Older men and younger women? Keep reading »

After almost five years of marriage, Katie Lee Joel and Billy Joel (ahem, William) have filed for divorce. Now Katie Lee, who is 33 years younger than her soon-to-be ex, will disappear even further into the sunset. You probably don’t even remember that she was once the host of “Top Chef.” Yeah, I didn’t think so. That’s because she only hosted for one season, and viewers complained that she was too robotic. “Top Chef” won—they replaced Katie with Padma Lakshmi, who we love except for the fact that she eats and eats and never seems to gain any weight. But Katie isn’t alone. Check out these former TV hosts who were replaced right before their shows got epically popular. Keep reading »
