Vince Offer — the guy made famous by the ShamWow infomercials — apparently couldn’t soak up the problems in his marriage … and his wife has officially filed for divorce. Offer married Melody Barney in Malibu in 2014, and she submitted divorce…
The Beador divorce is still ongoing, and Shannon and David had a hearing this week over David paying spousal support.
David wants to pay less, but the judge said that the court needs to review their financial information.
Here’s a look at what the two of them are allegedly making — and the eye-popping expenses that they both have every month.
RadarOnline has the details that might give fans a better understanding of why Shannon and David are squabbling in court over money.
To hear David tell it, he’s scraping by on a middle class income while Shannon is living like a queen while making three times as much..
Apparently David claims that he makes $ 20,000 a month.
That amounts to a six-figure salary, but it’s not pocket change.
David claims that Shannon is raking in $ 65,000 per month.
Shannon tells a very different story, and she may have the paperwork to prove it.
Shannon says that David makes about $ 108,168 per month.
(So, from what she claims, he makes more in three months than he says that he makes in a year)
Shannon’s 2017 tax returns show that she made $ 423,206 for the whole year.
That points to a monthly income of about half of what he suggests.
Shannon’s monthly expenses allegedly amount to $ 30,235, and here’s the breakdown:
$ 10,191 go to what she refers to as “film preparation.”
$ 12,000 go to rent. Yes, per month. She’s rich and she’s renting a house.
$ 1,625 on eating out (which, especially if she’s eating at nice places and leaving even a minimally decent tip, looks totally reasonable)
$ 5,000 goes to “entertainment,” which … is a lot of money in a very broad and vague category.
$ 2,250 is then spent each month on clothing.
David’s monthly expenses are apparently only $ 12,250.
$ 7,500 goes to rent. Again, these are rich people paying rich people prices for rich people homes.
$ 2,000 then go to groceries and household supplies. That doesn’t really sound unreasonable.
$ 1,000 on eating out on top of those groceries is a bit more, but sure.
$ 1,000 go to entertainment, gifts, and vacation combined.
These budgets sound like they’re self-described, so let’s take everything involved with a grain of salt.
The reason that all of this is coming up is because Shannon and David are fighting in court again.
David wants to amend the $ 22,500 per month that he is currently paying in support.
Specifically, he wants to tweak — or do away with entirely — the $ 10,500 that he is paying in spousal support.
(Nobody seems to be fighting directly over the rest, which is child support for their three daughters)
The result of David’s attempt to change the arrangement ws a three hour hearing, which apparently got on Shannon’s last nerve.
She was spotted holding back tears afterwards and heard telling him: “You are such a nickel and dimer! It’s disgusting!”
This sort of itemization of a person’s life is pretty common during a divorce if there’s any kind of support payment involved.
People explain their budget, and hand it off to a judge to evaluate.
Generally speaking, the “breadwinner” is going to present themselves as the sort of person who doesn’t spend much and keeps to a tighter budget.
The person who relies upon spousal support is more likely to list as many expenses as possible to show that they need the money.
It’s not that people lie, necessarily, just that they stretch the truth as far as it will go in the most convenient direction.
The court figures out the rest.
On Saturday night, Roger Matthews and Jersey Shore cast member Jenni “JWOWW” Farley went out to dinner in celebration of their third wedding anniversary.
The setting looked romantic and the two sides both looked pretty happy.
But there was just one small detail that seemed a bit off about this evening out…
… Matthews and Farley are getting a divorce.
In late September, it was revealed that Farley filed documents for this sort of legal split in Ocean City, New Jersey, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the break-up.
The official complaint read as follows:
The Plaintiff and the Defendant have irreconcilable differences which have caused the breakdown of the marriage for a period of at least six months which make it appear that the marriage should be dissolved and that there is no prospect of reconciliation.
There have been no reports since of infidelity by either party.
It mostly seems as if Farley’s busy schedule, exacerbated by new seasons of Jersey Shore: Vacation, simply got in the way of the couple spending quality time together.
But Matthews has been adamant that he can win Farley back over — and that appears to have been his intention behind this anniversary-themed dinner date.
“Rome wasn’t built in a day,” he wrote as a caption to the first image in this article.
This is a pretty clear reference to Matthews committing himself to reconciling with his estranged wife, no matter how long it may take.
Simply put, said Matthews in an Instagram video after news of the divorce went viral, “I am going to win my wife back.”
He added at the time:
“I’m going to win her affection back, I am going to win her love back.
“I have no intentions on being a single dad. We’re in counseling so there is hope. It ain’t over ‘till the fat lady sings.”
Farley and Matthews share two kids, a daughter named Meilani and a son named Greyson.
“Praying for a better tomorrow,” Roger captioned his aforementioned, continuing:
“Sorry world, I’m taking a day off from praying for you today and I’m just gonna pray for my family. Hope springs eternal.”
He sure does sound sad and sincere.
However, a source recently said that Farley has no intention of rekindling this romantic flame.
“She was just unhappy, and she wasn’t in love with him anymore,” this source told Radar Online a day after the split was confirmed, adding:
“Roger has been trying everything he can to change her mind, but her mind is made up. She’s done.”
Is she, however?
Along with the date photo above, Roger posted a video of the still-husband and wife from their evening out.
They are walking to a white, pink flower-adorned horse-drawn carriage in the footage.
“The horse, oh my God,” JWOWW says.
“Your chariot awaits,” Mathews responds. “Let me get that door for you, babe. Happy anniversary.”
“Oh, why thank you. Look at that,” JWOWW then said, spotting a bouquet of flowers.
“These are for you,” Mathews replies.
So… what do you think, folks?
Might there be some hope here after all?
Hollywood history is filled with whirlwind romances that were followed by abrupt, mysterious breakups.
But you’d be hard-pressed to find a situation more bizarre or enigmatic than the divorce of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
After winning the hearts of millions during their honeymoon period, Holmes and Cruise called it quits after just six years of marriage.
And despite the fact that they seem to have had virtually no contact with one another in the years since their 2012 divorce, the contentious nature of their split continues to make both actors tabloid staples.
Sources close to the situation say Cruise has not seen daughter Suri in four years.
This, despite the fact that he’s been in the same city as the 12-year-old on numerous occasions.
But while he seems to have little interest in being a father to his daughter, Cruise continues to closely monitor the actions of both Suri and her long-suffering mother.
According to a new report from Life & Style, Holmes believes the Church of Scientology has been spying on her for years in order to ensure that she doesn’t engage in any activities that might undermine the organization and its reputation.
“Tom does still have control over Katie,” a source tells the tabloid, adding that Holmes still needs to consider whether Cruise would approve before making any major decisions.
“She paid a price to escape him.”
The insider adds that Katie has no doubt she’s being continuously monitored by CoS operatives:
“Katie wondered if she was even being spied on by church employees in her own home,” the source claims.
While the allegations that Holmes is under surveillance remain unconfirmed, there’s no question that she’s been constrained by the terms of a very strict nondisclosure agreement.
“She could lose custody of Suri [Cruise]. It’s quite sick, really,” says former Scientologist and anti-cult activist Leah Remini.
“She’s been muzzled about saying much about Tom or Scientology as part of the agreement she signed after she filed for divorce,” the anonymous insider says of Holmes’ situation.
“And those agreements don’t have an end date. It doesn’t look like there will ever be a time that his specter isn’t looming over her and Suri.”
Fortunately, Katie isn’t entirely alone in her struggle against Tom and the powerful organization for whom he serves as a global spokesman:
The informant says Cruise’s second wife Nicole Kidman has reached out to Holmes and offered support:
“Katie and Nicole have spoken about raising their daughters to be independent and giving them a solid education, which is the opposite of Scientology teachings,” the insider claims.
“Just living their lives is their way of moving on from the Church of Scientology.”
Sadly, it seems that like their mothers, Cruise’s children will never be fully free of the CoS and its pernicious influence.
