And Scaramucci is fired... by his wife.

"Anthony Scaramucci, the White House’s potty-mouthed new communications director, has been dumped by his beautiful blond wife because of his 'naked political ambition,' multiple sources exclusively tell Page Six."
The source said that the Wall Street financier, 52, had been “hell-bent” on claiming his position at the White House after he was originally pegged for a senior role and sold SkyBridge Capital in preparation in January.

He was blocked by Reince Priebus, Trump’s chief of staff. But, after an aggressive campaign, Scaramucci was made communications director on June 21 by Trump, prompting Sean Spicer to quit.

Maybe he IS going to have to try sucking his own cock for awhile.

Deidre Ball, who worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, the firm he founded in 2005 and sold to ascend to the White House, has filed for divorce from “The Mooch” after three years of marriage after getting fed up with his ruthless quest to get close to President Trump, whom she despises.

One source told Page Six, “Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce. She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end. She has left him even though they have two children together.”


Good riddance.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Naturally, a beautiful blonde who would marry Scaramucci in the first place has no naked ambition whatever.

mccullough said...

The second wives club. Three-year marriage with no kids. The prenup must have cost a lot

rcocean said...

If she fired him because he works for Trump - good riddance to bad rubbish.

Time for better model, with less mileage & lower maintenance.

mccullough said...

She is neither beautiful nor blonde

rcocean said...

Looking at her picture, "Beautiful" is a stretch, her chin/nose are rather large.

But he's no prize either.

Kate said...

Three years is a short time to build a relationship that would last the DC circus. Honey, he was always this ambitious. You just weren't married long enough to know it.

Bay Area Guy said...

Maybe, the Mooch WILL be sucking his own cock these days.....

chickelit said...

Althouse and the rest of the beleaguered American women need to pile on Melania next. Get her to threaten to leave if Trump doesn't stop being such a meanie.

tcrosse said...

"He's a fucking vulgarian", Diedre explained.

Howard said...

Mooch's wife allegedly said "I can smell C__K on your breath from here" before pulling the plug

LarsPorsena said...

If the ambition was well-clothed instead of naked, would she still be satisfied?

mockturtle said...

;-D

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

Not to judge, but she kind of looks like Sarah Jessica Parker anyway.

Maybe he can buy a female Trump voter to replace her with. They're cheaply bought, at least.

I told my wife that they had two kids and why she left him.

"That's crazy."

Trump derangement strikes again. Leftists think messing up the lives of their own children is ok for reasons this stupid.

Balfegor said...

I'm embarrassed to admit my first reaction when I popped open the article was the same as mccullough's -- maybe the women around me are all way above average, but she strikes me as kind of unattractive, at least in the photo they chose. Scaramucci isn't super handsome himself, but honestly, he looks more handsome than she looks beautiful. If I didn't know otherwise, I'd have thought he was the trophy husband.

On the other hand, I like to think my thoughts would not have wandered off in that direction if I hadn't been primed by the framing of "beautiful, blonde wife."

Michael K said...

She looks like a tranny.

Maybe she is just made about Trump's canceling tranny enlistment.

A homely rich man is still a rich man.

Fabi said...

Maybe she caught him in a three-way with Diamond and Silk.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

Trump derangement

This term actually works as a good description of what's wrong with the pompadour-wearing weirdo residing in the White House. It's like calling a known psycho, "deranged."

Glad to see others are picking up on Trump's derangement.

rcocean said...

"beautiful, blonde wife."

Yep, that sets expectations high.

Usually not met.

rcocean said...

IMO, not more than 5% of women/men are "Beautiful/handsome".

Most people are "pretty"/"good looking" since everyone is above average.

Like me. Except for my strong, manly, legs, which cause women to swoon.

Which is why I never wear shorts.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Big deal. Another marriage (relationship, family, friendship etc) broken up because of political incompatibility. Where is the news here?

Plus. HE founded the business and HE decided to sell it. Now she is mad? She didn't know his political leanings before? Of course she did. She just thought the money and prestige of being the wife of a rich financial guy in swanky NYC made up for it.

chickelit said...

The Toothless Revolutionary Not to judge, but she kind of looks like Sarah Jessica Parker anyway.

I can never unsee that now. Thanks!

Darcy said...

Sad. And so is making fun of it. Divorce is hell, as I said on the other thread. People can't resist trying to figure out who is at fault. I'll help: both.

chickelit said...

Two kids together after just three years?..maybe she still has "milkbrain."

Page Six's Emily Smith broke the news and set the tone. I blame her.

Now Is the Time! said...

Mrs. Althouse you have been such a positive ray of sunshine among all of the Trump hate. I do truly appreciate your support for him. But now it seems that your are joining the bandwagon and piling on now that things are getting rough for our President. PLEASE at least respect the office! But also respect the man who it seems is taking on all of our country's evil forces at once.

The Toothless Revolutionary said...

PLEASE at least respect the office!

Hahahhaha. Right - because Trump himself has so much of that! ;-)

Thought he was pro-choice & donated to Dems. Might have been a switch because he's friends w/ DJT.

But I don't think marriages break up over politics. The politics are a mask for other issues. More likely there've been arguments about time spent with the kids or numerous other marriage flash points. Working in the white house is a busy job -- not a lot of time for young family.


William said...

If you can't marry well, marry often. He'll get the hang of it after another two or three. Practice makes perfect. Look at Trump......She looks about as young and good looking as he can go and still give off a serious vibe. Whatever the temptation, don't marry a twenty three year old with the background of a fitness trainer. Serious men don't have gorgeous wives.

Earnest Prole said...

It keeps getting better and better.

Wait - I thought someone wrote there was 2 kids in 3 years.

ok, nevermind! I should read the article before commenting.

You know absolutely nothing about this man and his wife, you’re not paid flacks, so why so eager to do the dirty work for free?

We know what they are. Now it's just a discussion of price. And free is a price.

Brookzene said...

Nobody cares about the marital difficulties of staffers to the President, jeez.

I don't know who the Obama staffers were.
I don't know what their marital status
I don't know if they were having difficulties in their marriage.


None of them were cracking up their first week on the job. While the WH was falling to pieces all around them.

Me? You're right -- I know nothing about the couple. I'm reacting to the piece and the Schadenfreude it was supposed to provoke.

The article is unclear. Says they have been married for 3 years and have 2 kids. Doesn't say if those kids are his and hers biologically. Later the article references someone who says "his" kids. So it could could be she has been popping out babies one after the other, or she has twins, or they are her kids from a previous marriage, or they are his kids from a previous marriage.....or.....

Sheesh. If the article writer can't be clear on this one issue what other crap is he/she trying to feed us.

Quaestor said...

She is neither beautiful nor blonde

Too kind. She's a borderline skank — that nose, those close-set eyes are barely acceptable on a man. As a couple, the one with the looks is definitely Scaramucci. We know that Titus has the hots for him (but then what does that signify?).

I'd wager the Mooch planned this from the moment Trump secured the election — I can see him lounging before his TV watching Hillary's ambitions collapsing into smoking ruins as state after state is called for Trump while Deidre Ball, a feminist bitch who wouldn't even take his name even though she shameless climbed into a senior executive office through his power alone, is pacing around weeping like Bryn Mawr sophomore, shouting curses at Trump and his deplorables. I can hear his interior monologue, How can I be rid of this load? With my looks and my cash, I can have the best of the best, the hottest of the hot. Yet here I am with this brown-bug munter who's getting rank faster than a three-day-old halibut... Ah hah!

Chuck said...

This is all so terrible for "House of Cards." Truth is stranger than fiction.

Big Mike said...

@Quaestor, the wife isn't in the same league as Ivanka, much less Melania, but she meets or exceeds minimal acceptable standards to be a second wife of a New Yawk financier. But like you I wonder why Emily Smith doesn't know dark roots when she sees them.

JAORE said...

Perhaps she quit getting invitations to the right parties after the ties to Trump became clearer.

Certainly a reasonable basis for dissolving a marriage.

Lucien said...

@Laslo:

So you couldn't resist going for the low hanging fruit, huh.

The Vault Dweller said...

I'm assuming she gave him an ultimatum like, "Do not get involved with this political cause." Which isn't really that unreasonable. Becoming a public political figure is really a family decision. And then she decided to end it. P.S. the headlines that call her beautiful are being kind to her. She isn't ugly. But she isn't beautiful.

themightypuck said...

This is going to sound shitty but the journalist brought it up. I agree with Balfegor. Not beautiful. Not ugly by any means but beautiful is a word with meaning and let's not cheapen it.

Ambrose said...

We are all living in an Elmore Leonard novel. Could be worse I suppose.

Laslo Spatula said...

I'm saddened to see people disparage her looks.

Every women is beautiful if you fuck her from behind.

And she has a nice ass.

cubanbob said...

People let's not be petty and low rent by commenting on her looks. Obviously he found her attractive enough to marry her. What is ugly is the alleged reason for the divorce. However considering it is the MSM and the MSM and truth are not well acquainted until verified I would believe this was the reason for the divorce. It maybe a reason but somehow it sounds to silly to be the reason.

Matthew Blaine said...

Deidre has given birth two of his children, and is setting them up for parental alienation. The media will take her side. If she makes the divorce messy and files for full custody, I hope Scaramucci burns her to the ground.

Steve said...

If we could find some with Scaramucci's accent, and have him read many of these comments out loud---with feeling---one would be justified in thinking the speaker truly was Scaramucci. Is he offensive? Yes, but only because he is a creature of the Blog & Twitter Age.

The MC/PC Update

It's clear that once again the male patriarchy has forced a beautiful woman's hand, this time tragically, to split her family. We know why. Scaramucci was becoming a man of power. Using Trump's own words, we know where that would lead.

Trump admitted women "let" you make sexual advances if you are a man of power. Women, helpless in the face of ugly aged males of power, let them do anything. Even, they let you grab them by the pussy. That's wrong. An abuse of male power.

Scaramucci was one step behind Trump, ready to grab the pussy. And for all feminists except the most enlightened ones, like Hillary, a selfless servant of the people with one eye looking to the future of "how she can best serve", that is forbidden. Hillary did not ride on the coat-tails of Bill. She paid the price; it was her turn. Our polls are certain she would have gone all the way if she had never met Bill.

Let us rejoice in Deidre Ball's decision to split her family over what some might see as "petty" political concerns, or over "petty" ambitions. It's always OK to use children as reluctant, but innocent pawns to rectify the destructive male/female imbalance of power. That Scaramucci seems like a typical NY Italian in no way indicates his cultural sensitivities towards family or children. And if he does have feelings for his children, more the better. That is as it should be, and women should rejoice in the necessary pain they inflict to right the imbalance. Do Not Hesitate. Deidre is a beacon to us all.

Note, and some may not understand this immediately. But it is always OK to use white and female supremacist terms like "blonde" and "beautiful" when rectifying the white male/female imbalance of power. This is a hotly contested point. Some feel the disenfranchisement of women of color is more important than the empowerment of (white) women over (white) men. Usually, we do agree with this point, all things being equal. However, in our relentless struggle to balance the various identity groups, you must trust us in THIS case, it is OK. But, if you ever do it, be sure, we will make you apologize.

But not if Emily Smith is actually transgendered (If you recall the video correctly).

Who knows in this day and age about such facts? We're forbidden to even ask.

General Haig kept the craziness in check and oversaw an orderly transition to Ford 17 months later.

I don't recall a divorce excuse based on an overly ambitious partner, I may have heard it before and I just forgot.

I love him but he was too driven to get a job at the White House...

Sounds like an endorsement.

iowan2 said...

All good fun for us from the cheap seats.

It all reminds of teaching from my older brother. He was 7 years older than me, we were relaxing somewhere, enjoying conversation and adult beverages, when a knock out, stunning woman walked into the room. Almost every male in the room followed her path, including me of course. My older brother chuckled, and I asked what was so funny. He said, "it's just funny that every guy in the place is lusting after her, and out in the world there are a half dozen guys that have cut her loose, because they just got tired of putting up with her shit."

This girls comments make clear she did not marry a person, but a lifestyle.

Another piece of brotherly wisdom. " the reason there is so much conflict is male, female relationships is, when women get married they think the man will change,(he wont) and the men think the woman wont change,(they do)"

William said...

If the photo accompanying the article is the best they can do to bolster their characterization of Mrs Scaramucci as a "beautiful" blond, then I'm thinking she's is pretty average looking. And if she is filing for divorce over his political attachment to Trump then he is well shed of the b*tch.

To each his own, said the old lady when she kissed her cow. Quaestor must be on a first name basis with the Scaramuccis and definitely has the hots for The Mooch.

But Diedre is the only sane person in the soon-to-end marriage.

According to reports, University of Buffalo graduate [Diedre] Ball donated $5,400 to the congressional campaign of anti-Trump Democrat Kathleen Rice in 2015. But she also donated $10,800 to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s presidential campaign . . .

We are proud of Governor Walker.

Gospace said...

A related point here about average and beautiful. If I remember correctly, some researchers, fairly recently since the technology to do so easily is still young, took 100 or so random woman facial shots, did measurements like width between eyes, ear size, etc., and morphed them into an average face. Then placed the morphed picture with another random 9 that had contributed to the morph, and asked people to rank them by beauty. Turns out that calling a woman average looking is a great compliment. The morphed picture was routinely ranked at 1 or 2 by the rankers, both male and female.
