How to be a Michael Douglas spouse to a bipolar partner like Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Diandra Douglas tries to prove that she's entitled to some of her ex-husband's 'Wall Street' cash.
Diandra Douglas, ex-wife of Michael Douglas, must have seen Wall Street one too many times because she's really taking that whole "greed is good" bit seriously.
