I never liked Ellen Barkin, and now I hate her. During her five year marriage to Ron Perelman, a loathsome arrogant billionaire, Ellen Barkin managed to acquire $20 million worth of jewelry. It will be auctioned off at Christies today, so I guess Ellen isn’t the sentimental type.
I recall reading a ridiculous piece in Vogue magazine about Ellen Barkin’s happy marriage. She gushed about how much “Ron” loved everything about her, including her beautiful skin, which she insisted was natural, despite a miraculous healing of the wrinkles she had sported only years earlier.
Well, the marriage went sour, and apparently ended in an ugly battle over money. Oh well.
All I know is, during the marriage, Ellen Barkin wasted no time in learning how to buy expensive jewelry, the better for Ron to Love her. The Christie’s catalogue attests to a greed that is hard to imagine. Please go there now, and listen to an audio of Ellen herself chuckling about her pair of emerald cuffs that once belonged to the Duchess of Windsor. Oh, Ellen, you big silly!
Anyway, the collection is expected to raise around $15 million, which Ellen Barkin says she will use to feed Africa….no, sorry, my mistake, she will use it to fund her own production company.
