DO YOU REALISE THAT THE TOM CRUISE AND KATIE HOLMES COULD INCREASE THE ECONOMY?
n many cases, the feasting will be of a literal nature, for few things put as much food on Tinseltown’s tables as a good divorce. The Cruise split will provide work not only for the top teams of lawyers, publicists and agents, but the hovering sub-host of briefers, greasers and cuff-shooting spivs who happily attach themselves to such human misfortunes.
“A big divorce is always helpful in my line of business,” admits John Nelson, the legendary Los Angeles real estate broker. “First, the wife gets a new house from the settlement, then the husband has to sell the old house because his new girlfriend doesn’t want to live in a place she associates with the former wife, and the wife’s attorney makes so much money from the case that he might buy a new house, too. If you’re lucky, you can get four or five sales out of it.”
