How Much is Your Cell Phone Bill?

without comments

The Smoking Gun has a report about Marie Douglas-David who is claiming to have $53,826 per week in expenses as part of her divorce filing.  Sure, that’s a lot of money, translating into almost $3 million per year.  But what shocked me was in the break down she claimed a cell phone bill of $481 per week.

Not per month… $481 per week.

Ok, seriously now… who the Hell pays that much for their cell phone?  How is that even possible?

I could call Obama’s grandmother at that mudfarm village in Africa and then just leave the phone connected all month and still have a lower cell phone bill.

Some other interesting costs of living for Marie:

  • $8,000 per week in travel
  • $1,500 per week in “entertainment/restaurants”
  • And this one is just too lovely to fully contemplate… $1,000 per week in skin and hair care.
  • Not that skin and hair are everything… it also evidently costs Marie $4,500 to clothe herself each week.
  • Mind you, that clothing bill does not include keeping her clothes clean.  THAT is an additional $650 per week for dry cleaning.

Times are hard, my friends.  Clearly this poor girl deserves more than the pitance to which she’s been relagated.  After all, she does note in her financial affidavit, “while recognizing that many of the expenses may seem high, most are lower than prior to the commencement of this case in August 2007.”

Well, that makes it all ok, doesn’t it?
