Ashton Kutcher May Have More Money, But Demi Moore Has More Class

ashton kutcher demi mooreThe sad, inevitable day we were all waiting for arrived yesterday: Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are divorcing "with great sadness." For once, it would be nice if the rag trades weren't right about a celeb couple's failing relationship, but alas, where there's smoke, there's fire. So, naturally, since all the US Weeklies and In Touches were right about Moore and Kutcher's impending breakup, I'm going to believe that they're right about the reason: Ashton is a lyin', cheatin' good fer nothin'.

Of course, now that it's official, people are wondering: What of their divorce? Who will get what? What will get who? And what will become of their prolific Twitter accounts and careers?

The short answer is nobody knows. The fun answer is we can totally speculate.

As far as their actual divorce goes, it's hard to say. I mean, I'm sure there were plenty of lawyers around, drawing up legal stuff before they tied the knot, but I doubt they have an iron-clad pre-nup type of situation. Both of their popularity mainly happened after they became a couple.

Now, their careers. That's a different story. As much as I'm on Team Demi here (and vehemently against Team Kutcher), I kind of think Ashton's the one who's going to be fine in this department. Don't be mistaken, it has nothing to do with the fine acting chops displayed in the Oscar-robbed Dude, Where's My Car?, it's because he's making almost 700 Gs an episode on Two and a Half Men. That's crazy money. And what's even crazier is the fact that that show isn't going anywhere for a while (as much as we may want it to). And once Ashton's episodes go into syndication, well, that's a whole lot more money for him. (Word on the street is dude made a million dollars from That '70s Show reruns just last year.) What he'll do after Two and Half Men, we'll see, but for now, he's good.

Demi will be fine, too, but not like Ashton. She just signed a lucrative deal with Ann Taylor, which is great, but it kind of seems like her days of making bank from movies are behind her. She hasn't had a hit -- or done much -- in ages, and unfortunately, when you're an "older" woman in Hollywood, well, it's bad times. I hate to say it, but a lot of her recent popularity came from the fact that she was married to Ashton Kutcher.

It's okay, though. Demi not only has her dignity in tact still, she has the world on her side. And, who knows, maybe now she'll go out and find herself a real man?

Are you Team Demi or Team Ashton?
