Emily and daniel from revenge dating

Photographs of Jocelyne’s once delicate face, stretched freakishly tight by plastic surgery, have only heightened the scrutiny and ridicule.
His-and-her plastic surgery, tigers in a bulletproof glass cave, and a 0,000 Chanel dress—what could be more over-the-top than the marriage of Alec and Jocelyne Wildenstein?
Their divorce: a jet-fueled farrago complete with ebony coffin, naked blonde, and loaded pistol. POOCHY Jocelyne Wildenstein with her five Italian greyhounds in the Bonnard Room of the famil’s 14-room Manhattan town house, January 11, 1998.
“[I will] be entertaining at home this week.”Jocelyne went anyway.
Just before midnight on September 2, she arrived at the town house with her two bodyguards. Jocelyne says that when she and her assistant went upstairs to the couple’s bedroom Alec appeared at the door wearing only a towel.
And she had a boyfriend: European filmmaker Sergio Gobbi, whom she’d been dating for five years. Since 1965, he’d been living in Paris with Maria Kimberly, a Ford model who’d starred in Jacques Tati’s comedy “That relationship stopped the moment I saw Jocelyne,” Alec says.

Jocelyne flew to Kenya, where he’d been stay-ing, but Alec remained in New York. He paid fashion photographer Wayne Maser to shoot Jarikova’s portfolio and asked his friend Eileen Ford to give her a modeling contract.“There was excitement—physical excitement.” Her “good health” (“very important, as I am an animal breeder”) had produced two children. “So,” Jocelyne says, “I kept my father for 14 days in the fridge” until Alec could make it. She has since posed for walked the Chanel runway in Paris, and landed a small role in Woody Allen’s upcoming film.Once he saw her, Jocelyne says, Alec grabbed a loaded nine-mm.
semi-automatic and aimed it at her—and continued to do so even after the bodyguards identified themselves.So they went in for his-and-hers eye-lifts, but for Jocelyne it was just the beginning. Friends suspect that she’s trying to look like a jungle cat. ”Ultimately, though, Jocelyne’s preventive medicine may have caused what it was meant to cure.
