    Huff Po Columnist Calls Bartiromo Old & Hysterical

    Jason Linkins obviously has a problem with Maria Bartiromo. We just can’t figure out what it is. In the opening sentence of his recent column the political columnist for the Huffington Post, Linkins attacks CNBC’s Bartiromo on the grounds that she is getting older. At least that’s what we think he’s saying with his crack […]

    Bartiromo on Barack

    Maria Bartiromo has a stimulus plan of her own. But it’s a plan to stimulate the selling of assets instead of consumer spending. If you’ve got stocks or homes you want to sell, you should probably sell before Barack Obama gets elected, she seems to say to Avenue. Today Page Six reports that the Money […]

    Help Us Declare A Victor

    It’s always sad when couples end things (and you have to pretend to care), but once the appropriate amount of time has past (usually two hours), we must ask the question: who came out on top? Who’s the winner of this breakup? Who deserves my admiration and who deserves my disgust? If the rumors are […]

Respectful of Maria’s status as the Money Honey, Maria and Todd were officially branded “ban tang fu qi” or a “semi-honey couple.” The phrase denotes young, […]

    The downside is that Maria Bartiromo hates animals. The upside is that there could be a catfight between the mistress of money and PETA champion Pamela Anderson in the very near future. The $Honey is under fire for posing in a fur-trimmed coat for More magazine’s September issue, featuring “female movers and shakers over 40.” […]

    You remember Todd Thomson, the guy who got fired from Citigroup for either too loosely spending the company dime on Maria Bartiromo or because Chuck Prince needed a scapegoat to distract people from Citi’s performance (are C shareholders as easily distracted by someone getting canned as Jim Cramer is by his reflection?)? Even though he’s […]

    So the word on the street is that erstwhile Citigroup executive and Maria Bartiromo acquaintance Todd Thomson has reached an agreement with his former employer vis-à-vis severance. The bank declined to proffer the number to any media outlets, or even file anything with the SEC, which Michele Leder finds a bit fishy (which, in the […]

    CNBC’s Money Honey has a new hive, the New York Observer’s “Manhattan Transfer” column reported today.

Here are the details, according to the Observer. The five-bedroom house, east of Third Avenue, has […]

Some of Citigroup’s biggest shareholders […]
