Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas may be back on top as one of the world’s favorite couples and proprieters of one of the rare Hollywood marriages that stand the test of some time, but not everyone thinks they’re great.
Take Michael Douglas’ ex-wife, Diandra Douglas, for example. She had some very thinly veiled insults targeted at Catherine Zeta-Jones and ex-husband Michael Douglas during a recent interview. The interview, ironically enough, took place at the home in Majorca, Spain that Diandra Douglas still shares with Michael.
When asked why she is “less visible” at the Spanish resort than Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, she had a pretty harsh reply,
“That’s because I don’ t believe in showing off. I’ve never sold photos or kept money from anything and I’ve always given everything away to charity. I’m proud to be able to say that I’ve never turned my private life into showbusiness.”
She then added, “Too much public exposure affects children.”
Is she insinuating that Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are show-offs? Surely not.
There was a rumor floating around that Zeta-Jones was trying to buy Diandra Douglas’ share of the home in Majorca, but Diandra swatted that down fast.
“It’s not true. Sometimes people say things without the slightest proof. Why would someone who doesn’t speak Spanish or the local Majorcan language or knows nothing about this culture want a house here? She doesn’t even come here much.’’
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas married in 2000 and now have two children, Dylan and Carys. Michael Douglas has a son, Cameron, 35, with Diandra Douglas. He is currently in prison for selling methamphetamine and heroin possession.
Despite Cameron’s woes, Douglas seems to be a great dad to his children with Catherine Zeta-Jones.
“I love kids and I love having had this second chance to have a family,” he said. “There’s something about the innocence and unequivocal love that children have. You’re just their dad and there’s a complete love without them having any judgment, so I can enjoy that a lot.”
Will Diandra Douglas ever find peace with her ex-husband and Catherine Zeta-Jones?
