A cool extra million for Papa Doug's ex

U-T San Diego publisher and reputed mega-millionaire Douglas Manchester got married on the weekend before Christmas at his Manchester Grand Del Mar resort in the northern reaches of the city of San Diego, and, as is usual with the real estate magnate, waves were made. “Did Papa Doug Manchester have to disturb all of Carmel valley with his marriage fireworks last night? My dog barking like crazy,” tweeted one irate neighbor. Manchester’s year-end rush to the altar necessitated a hurry-up ending to his drawn-out divorce proceedings with now-former wife Betsy. Nearly four and a half years after he first filed for the split-up in June 2009, the knot was finally untied this past November 7. “The parties entered into a Marital Settlement Agreement on December 17, 2009,” says a stipulation for judgment signed by the couple and their attorneys on the final dissolution day. “The parties acknowledge the sensitive nature of the information contained in the Preliminary and Final Declarations of Disclosure and do not desire this information to be publicly disseminated.”

But even though most of the details of who got what are off the record, the agreement does contain a few new tidbits of information about the once-jet-setting couple’s financial relationship. “Douglas has paid Elizabeth a supplemental equalizing payment of $1,050,000 in full resolution of all of Elizabeth’s community property rights and interests,” says the document. “Douglas, as his contribution to Elizabeth’s attorney’s fees and costs, shall pay on the date this Stipulation is executed, to Gerald L. McMahon of Seltzer, Caplan, McMahon and Vitek… Elizabeth’s reasonable fees and actual costs incurred in an amount not to exceed the sum of $15,000.” In addition, the document says, “Elizabeth has recently acquired a membership at La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club and a membership in the La Jolla Country Club. Those assets are confirmed as Elizabeth’s separate property.” The 71-year-old Manchester’s new younger bride, Russian immigrant Geniya Derzhavina, filed for divorce from her former husband Brantley Vigil in North County court not long after the publisher’s action, in August 2009. She ended up with the couple’s 2009 Honda Civic, valued at $25,397; her ex-husband agreed to cover debts of $499,000, as previously reported by Don Bauder.

Hmmm, would Geniya Derzhavina have married Manchester, if he were instead assistant produce manager at the La Jolla Ralph's? I don't THINK so.
