Would you fight your (ex)husband for your shoe collection?
I love shoes as much as the next girl. Like many other Latinas, I look at shoe shopping as a serious sport that requires extensive patience. Over the years, I have acquired what I consider a pretty decent-sized selection. That being said, I don't think I'd ever go to court over my footwear like Beth Shak and her ex-husband, Daniel! The now-divorced couple is fighting over Shak's insanely large and expensive shoe collection, which is apparently made up of 1,200 pairs of designer shoes!

Shak, a professional poker player, is known as much for her ridiculously, over-the-top love for shoes as she is for her card skills. Now, her former husband, a high-powered hedge fund manager who reportedly lost a lot of money in the gold market recently, is attempting to sue her for that. Claiming that he didn't know about the shoes until two years after the split, Daniel is asking for as much as 35 percent of her collection--which includes 700 pairs of Louboutins (!!!) and that he estimates are worth a cool $1 million.

WOW! Can you imagine having that many shoes of any kind, let alone designer ones that are worth anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand each? I'm pretty sure that's an addiction.
In any case, the whole thing seems entirely ridiculous to me. Firstly, because no one in their right mind--I don't care how rich you are--needs that many shoes. And also because, how do you not know your own wife has that many pairs of shoes until TWO whole years after you get divorced?! I seriously doubt that they were hidden in a secret underground vault. I mean, clearly Shak's husband has fallen on hard times and is using his wife's penchant for Louboutins to try and get some easy money.
Hey, he's not the only one at fault! It's pretty clear that both Shaks are way too materialistic and selfish to even deserve any of the shoes! I say the court take the entire shoe collection, auction it off, and give the money to a charity or a cause that actually matters. That would teach these two a lesson! Also, maybe let me know about that shoe sale beforehand...just sayin'.
