A CATFIGHT OVER PETER FALK'S FORTUNE

20050706peterfalk3.jpg
There’s more to this Peter Falk story than meets the eye. The 81 year old Columbo star’s daughter Catherine wants power of attorney because she claims he’s impaired by Alzheimer’s and is unable to manage his finances or to “resist fraud.” (Catherine is Falk’s daughter with his first wife.) Meanwhile Falk’s second wife of over thirty years, actress Shera Danese, has been oddly silent. Catherine and her father have had an odd relationship – in fact she sued him in 1992, claiming he didn’t pay her college tuition. (they settled) Falk is much older than his wife Shera and around twenty years ago we heard that she told him that she was bored and tired of staying home and wanted a divorce. He begged her not to leave and HE moved into the guest house until she cooled off. They eventually reconciled. But we sense a huge battle brewing between Catherine and Shera about who should control the money.

    That’s nice that she’s looking out for her father or herself. Which ever good looking out!

    Shera may have been watching out for her husband for some time, privately.
    I’d be livid if my stepdaughter blithely announced what should be a private matter to the world at large. Tacky.

    This is a huge issue, people, and you should make sure your own family has their affairs carefully & legally arranged for yours and your parents future.
    Alzheimer patients do insane things with their money. A family friend took her savings out of the bank (over $50,000) & gave it away to strangers. My Dad’s doctors mother gave away her savings to her church.
    We were lucky. When my Dad was first diagnosed with Alzheimers, he agreed to sign a living trust and power of attorney, which gave us (his daughters) the power to manage his finances when he became too incompetent to do so on his own. We pulled the plug when he was in the second stage of the disease and he had changed his bank accounts 9 times in four different banks over a period of three months! He also lost or gave away thousands of dollars.
    We did our liviing trust & power of atty over the internet and paid about $500. God knows how many thousands we would’ve been out if we hadn’t saved my Dad from blowing his savings.

    Dutch people usually have class. My husband is Dutch & he & all his family have class.
    What happened to you?
    If you hate Americans so much, stay off our websites and out of our faces.

    To Gerard and Shelly,
    Today’s world is much too small and our economies too globally intertwined for your petty nationalism! “Patriotism” and “nationalism” are stupid, outmoded ideas in the global environment we all share today, and each country and peoples have their merits!

    You must be one of those ignorant, uneducated
    “liberals” who know nothing at all about history, pride in oneself and one’s country, or the sense of freedom one gets from personal responsibility as opposed to government welfare handouts that turn citizens into mindless slaves incapable of supporting themselves.

    Lady ( ha ha, now surely thats ironic! ) what is going on in your head? That post didn’t even have anything to do with what 2.21 said. Welfare slaves? This is about Peter Falk not a support group for eye twitching loons.
    Would I be sued if I post what I read about Peter Falk in the sixties? I bet Janet knows the stuff… Put in a blind item! Time for a new one anyway please!

We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
