snipshot_94127j6wsspe.jpgNow, don’t feel too bad for the guy. He also managed to get a couple homes, some companies, and many beautiful cars. What’s striking about this story, making rounds around the web, is how Tim and Edra Blixseth split their fortune in the face of divorce: they simply did it over a bottle of wine one afternoon. The power couple, known for hosting massive celebrity bashes at the swank resort they founded, The Yellowstone Club, decided to split their assets amicably; and without giving money to lawyers and other hungry third parties. From the article,

“Neither wanted to place their fate in the hands of a judge. So they hatched a plan for their own deal. They each made a list of their assets and their estimated worth. They ranked each by order of personal importance. Then they met at the Beverly Hills Hotel to compare their notepads.
“We sat down, and I joked ‘I’ll show you mine if you show me yours,’ ” Edra recalls.”

These two are uber-rich, and you can jump over to the article for more info on their empire. One nice highlight: “They also have given generously to charity, chipping in millions to the post-Katrina relief effort.” It was amusing to see that of all the items Tim really wanted to keep, the eco-friendly Smart Car was one of them. In a side-by-side comparison, I’m thinking he got the better part of the deal.
