Divorce for shouty YouTube wife

Belligerent blonde Broadway banshee blasted by beak

Boost IT visibility and business value

Broadway mogul Philip Smith has been granted a divorce from the actress whose dull video rants inexplicably clocked up over 3m hits on YouTube.

Tricia Walsh-Smith attained the kind of internet infamy previously only afforded to dramatic prairie dogs with her petulant marriage mitherings, in which she stomps around the couple's Manhattan apartment complaining about her sexless marriage and other enormous husband-inflicted injustices.

The actress, displaying the full range of emotions Botox allows, surprisingly did herself no favours by presenting herself to the world as a victim (but yet and at the same time a "warrior") while calling her husband's office to ask an assistant what he would like her to do with the condoms and Viagra.

Judge Harold Beeler found the couple's prenup to be valid, and told Walsh-Smith to remove her tush from the apartment within 30 days. She will leave with a mere $750,000 and her pride dignity hair extensions.

Judge Beeler called the YouTube shenanigans "a calculated and callous campaign to embarrass and humiliate [Smith]". Smith himself sighed that he was happy with the outcome but "sorry it had come to this". His ex-wife was dignified and restrained, calling the decision "disgusting" and complaining her husband was "basically throwing me out on the street".

According to Tricia's official website, the brave lady has "made an indelible impact on pop culture and women everywhere". We hereby petition for her to be deported from the gender, which has problems enough as it is. ®
