QVC vendor and skin care king Peter Thomas Roth is in the news again, this time regarding a court battle over his estranged wife’s $500,000 15-carat diamond. That’s a lot of jars of eye cream!
The New York Post reported that Roth is in the middle of a bitter divorce battle with his soon-to-be-ex-wife Noreen, even though they are still both living in the same Manhattan townhouse. How civilized.
According to the Post, Roth’s 94-year-old mom Carole has sued Noreen to reclaim what she alleges is her pricey pear-shaped diamond, which she had worn in a ring for 30 years.
It seems that when Roth and Noreen got married in 1996, the bride sported a pair of diamond earrings that were made out of a diamond that Noreen had already owned and one that Roth’s mama Carole had, the Post said.
Noreen accused Roth of using his mother to try to get at his assets, including the $500,000 diamond, a charge that the skin care titan denies.
By the way, Roth last made the gossip columns when he started dating Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Brooke Mueller. But that romance ended after an incident where Mueller apparently had some kind of breakdown and had to be sent to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
We lead such a dull life compared to these folks.
