Tricia Walsh-Smith, the divorcee made famous by a bitter and popular YouTube attack on her husband, has lost her divorce claims — with the Manhattan judge expressly criticizing her YouTube videos. Philip Smith, a theater mogul and President of the Shubert Organization, is the winner Judge Harold Beeler upheld the pre-nup in the case –limiting Walsh-Smith to $750,000 and telling her to get out of the luxury condo that was the scene of her YouTube creation.
What is clear is that Hell hath no fury like a YouTuber scorned.
However, the YouTube approach is not likely to be repeated given the reaction of the Court. Beeler criticized her for the video as a “a calculated and callous campaign to embarrass and humiliate her husband” and to pressure him into settling into a settlement. He stated that “She has attempted to turn the life of her husband into a soap opera by directing, writing, acting in and producing a melodrama.”
Her video has attracted 3 million hits. For the video, click here.
She even has a website proclaiming her as Tricia Walsh Smith: Activist…Artist…Woman…Warrior. Click here. It is not quite clear what she was an activist or warrior for — beyond an attack on her husband and his family.
