Dirty Linen

It's being called the 'YouTube divorce', and seems to be causing quite a stir on the other side of the Atlantic. British former actress and playwright Tricia Walsh-Smith has published a video on YouTube in which she complains of her treatment by her estranged husband Philip Smith, president of the Shubert Organization, the largest theatre owner on Broadway. She claims that he is trying to evict her from their New York apartment and that she will lose everything, as a result of a pre-nuptial agreement they entered into. She then goes on to give intimate details of their life, in an apparent attempt to humiliate him.

Is this the way of divorces in the future? I certainly hope not. I also have serious doubts as to whether it will benefit her when the matter goes to court, as seems inevitable. If you want to make up your own mind, here's the video:


  1. Is this woman trying to kick start her career in the face of a cast iron prenuptual? Is she genuinely aggrieved? Is she a psychotic gold digger, Mills style?! Watch this space! ( NOT)

  2. Yep, I'll also not be watching this space!

  3. OK, I lied. I've now done another post about Mrs Walsh-Smith.
