Pam Shriver Asked To Pay Up For Poor Taste In Men

George Lazenby and Pam Shiver Is it Pam Shriver’s fault that she is so rich that it makes her estranged husband feel bad, and that his kids don’t take him seriously?

Though it’s been almost a year now, Shriver’s divorce case from her estranged husband still hasn’t been resolved yet. According to documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, 70 year old George Lazenby is now challenging a prenup agreement he signed before marrying the 46 year old Shriver, and asking the judge to award him $16,133 a month in spousal support.

Lazenby claims is that Shriver is “30 times a millionaire” and he doesn’t want to explain to their three young children why their mother has such a larger pair house than their father.

The “As Seen On TV” gold meltdown factory Cash4Gold that solicits bags of your unused jewelry and coins in exchange for a bit of cold hard quick cash is looking to melt down some Wimbledon trophies.

The company, who had formerly hired the now-deceased Ed McMahon and MC Hammer to star in a spot for last year’s Super Bowl, put forth an invitation today hoping Roger Federer and Serena Williams were hard-up or tasteless enough to appear in the next Cash4Gold commercial.

Or at the very least, to get an appraisal of their Wimbledon trophies.

roddick's wimbledon tweets

The early-round tournament entertainment has really spilled offline. Andy Roddick, who took out Igor Kunitsyn in his second round match today, had to answer a slew of questions about Rick Astley.

Later, Roddick Tweeted (or in his case, Twatted) about how he feels like he’s now ‘answering more questions about Twitter than about tennis’.

That’s cuz they’re stalking you, homefry.

Like this dude points out, the media covering Wimbledon so completely lacks originality that they seem to have nothing else to talk the tennis players about.
