Someone is a purple nurple, but I actually don’t know who to be more disgusted with. Michael Douglas’ ex-wife or his ex-wife’s lawyer.
Michael Douglas, the actor from such hit films as “Wall Street,” “Fatal Attraction,” and “Basic Instinct” reprises his role from “Wall Street” in the new film “Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” which sounds like the video game version of “Wall Street.”
He is being sued by his former wife, whom he divorced 10 years ago after awhile of not being together anyway. She’s asking for 50% of the amount he made for his work on the new film.
I know what you’re thinking, “But they weren’t married when he made this film. How can she lay claim to this? Especially since she’s made over $6 million in DVD sales since their divorce for movies he made prior to the divorce and he doesn’t own the rights to the character he played in both films.”
Interesting that you know so much about the situation but still have to ask questions, but to answer your question – I don’t know.
But that’s not even the main reason why I’m calling anyone a purple nurple. What makes this so grotesque is that he just announced last week that he has THROAT CANCER!
And her lawyer had the gall to reference a famous line from “Wall Street” to make HIM look like the greedy one. “Greed is about someone…who won’t pay his spouse.”
Are you kidding me??
That would be like Michael Douglas’ lawyer saying, “Your honor, there is one basic instinct here. This woman has a fatal attraction to money. Why not just boil his rabbit? Seriously, talk about romancing the stone…s she’s gonna be buying with all that money. Really. I’m falling down over here. Is this a game, or what? Is he gonna accidentally shoot his brother played by Sean Penn? What a perfect murder that would be. He is Michael Douglas…and he IS the president of the United States. Wonder Boys!”
Admittedly, I got a little carried away there.
Lady who used to be married to Michael Douglas and your lawyer…you’re a purple nurple.
