Court kicks YouTube rant missus into touch

Appeal against 'inhuman treatment' divorce fails

Security for virtualized datacentres

The New York Supreme Court's Appellate Division has sent YouTube rant (former) missus Tricia Walsh-Smith packing, ruling that her divorce from Broadway mogul Philip Smith is legit, and she'll walk away with nothing more than a prenup provision of $750,000.

Walsh-Smith achieved instant internet fame with an ill-advised broadside against Smith when their marriage went titsup:

Smith was subsequently granted a divorce on the grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment, with the judge describing his ex's outburst as "a calculated and callous campaign to embarrass and humiliate [him]". She was ejected from their New York apartment with the aforementioned modest pay-off as consolation for the nightmare ordeal she'd evidently been subjected to.

She wouldn't let it lie, though, but her pleas for justice have fallen on deaf ears.

No matter, because "warrior" Walsh-Smith has bounced back with a musical career which demonstrates she's completely moved on from the whole sorry affair:
