Taken' Divorce Drama Online

Actress, Tricia Walsh Smith has resorted to airing her dirty laundry on YouTube in an attempt to embarrass her husband during a seemingly bitter divorce. Walsh Smith, wife of Philip Smith, president of the Shubert Organization, the largest theater owner on Broadway is taking her marital issues to the masses in what a prominent divorce lawyer says sets a new precedent. "People used to worry about getting on Page Six [the gossip page of the New York Post]. But this? It brings the concept of humiliation to a whole new level." says Bonnie Rabin, a divorce lawyer who has handled high-profile cases. "I don't think it's the kind of thing people should be doing, and it's the kind of thing judges frown upon," said Norman Sheresky, a partner in the matrimonial law firm Sheresky Aronson Mayesfsky & Sloan. The video which ends with the caption "Will poor, vulnerable Patricia be evicted? Or will mean bad husband do the right thing? Stay tuned!" has been viewed over 175,000 times to date. CNN has the story.
