Last night, I received a private TWEET from Rupert Murdoch – that after months of agonizing separation, he was filing for divorce from his wife Wendi Deng.

Even though I couldn’t hear his voice, I could tell he was crying.

I’ve known Rupert for many many years. More years that his third wife has been alive.

Yet, I always knew, even before she was born, that Wendi Deng Murdoch was the person for him.

It’s none of our business why someone else’s marriage ends.

I do know that if the marriage of Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng Murdoch can’t survive  - there isn’t much hope for anyone else.

They were ideal for each other.

Equals in intellect.

She was beautiful.

He was rich.

And while we all cry a bit today for Rupert, we can bravely dry those tears tomorrow because Rupert will land on his feet.

He didn’t tell me why the marriage fell apart. There must have been something in those years of wire tapping her phone that became the final straw.

Chin up, Rupe, I’ll be here whenever you need a friend.

I’ll see you at Sun ValleyI’ll save you ONE STOOL at the bar.

    Hah! Cressida was a gullible pawn in some mans’ game of trade. Wendy is a scary man eater. But I get you, It was very boring and it lasted too long.

    Hang in there Rupert!! We love ya!

    Rupert, old chum, this song wasn’t actually designed with you in mind, but if you substitute “caviar” for “hot dogs” and “Henri IV Dudognon Heritage Cognac Grande Champagne” for “beer,” it just might work. It’s called “Running Out,” by the American blues-rock artist Biff Thuringer. He likes Chinese girls too! Enjoy!

    Wonder who is going to be her next pray.

    Khan, fire up the G6, my friend. Time to leave the Seychelles and head to Allan & Co. I hear Sergei wants to float a sh*tload of balloons over Dollar Mountain in the hopes of demonstrating how Google Internet will save Third World goat herders from Pestilence and enable them to rise up against authoritarian governments unable to jam their signals. Apparently there will be more room at the Hailey Airport this year because Don Graham, Oprah, and Mel Karmazan are going to jet-pool leaving space for media moguls with REAL jets. You can finally get that 767 you always wanted when they open up the new Bellevue International airport south of town. Looking forward to seeing you at the Drankin’ Hole. Bin Tran was talking about you just last week. BTW, I’m all stretched out now. That media mogul plastic surgery was a bitch.
