Walsh-Smith: "Calculated and callous"

Well, it didn't do her any good. Tricia Walsh-Smith, of 'YouTube divorce' fame (infamy?) has lost her case. Not only did the court grant her husband the divorce, but it also ordered her to leave the New York apartment within a month (something that she railed against in the videos) and rejected her claim that the prenuptial agreement should be voided. Judge Harold Beeler found that Walsh-Smith had engaged in a "calculated and callous campaign to embarrass and humiliate her husband and his daughters".

Walsh-Smith has said that she has no regrets and indicated that she intends to appeal, but hopefully the judgment will deter others from emulating her.
