    that story is a bunch of crap. everyone knows they were having an affair for years while he was married. everyone knows wolfgang paid for any "designing" she did, including the store she ran into the ground. she's never even visited these places she claims to be involved with. its also sad that she claims to have her childrens best interests at heart with its common knowledge that she has nannies working around the clock so she doesn't have to deal with the kids herself. she's pathetic

    Just came across your interview with CNN. Thought I would let you know that your clothes are very beautiful and that your philanthropic work is even more inspiring. Keep it up.
