Jimmy Choo Shoes Rushes To Donate

Los Angeles, CA – The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Greater Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce today announced the formation of THE JAMIE FUND to help raise cash or checks for current/former/future Dodger co-owner Jamie McCourt who is currently “down on her luck” according to Fund officials.

Immediate needs for Mrs. McCourt include $25,000 monthly for spa treatments, $2,500 for weekly pedicures, and $10,000 for daily household expenses, including shopping trips to Rodeo Drive.

“Rest very assured that all funds raised will go directly to Jamie McCourt,” said a lawyer for the beleaguered McCourt who requested anonymity to avoid unwanted late night phone calls from his voluble client.

“Jamie is being more than reasonable. She is just asking that her basic living needs be cared for.”
