Bruce Pearl’s Ex-Wife Opens Up Salon. Names It Alimony’s

Posted by Mike on November 26, 2008


The ex-wife of University of Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl, Kim Shrigley has taken the money that she got in the recent divorce from Pearl and put it to good uses. Namely, Shrigley recently opened up a salon in the Knoxville area and named it Alimony’s, according to That’s a nice kick in the junk to Pearl. I’m sure he loves the name and doesn’t want to commit any harm to his wife. Still not as good as Kenny Anderson’s ex-wife, and veteran of the MTV Real World’s Tammy, who license plate now reads “hiscash”. Oh, and for all you old bags collecting on your ex-husband’s money, because you ladies deserve it so much, you get a %15 discount at Shrigley’s salon if you collect alimony. And how could I write a story about Bruce Pearl without showing his greatest hits, here, here, here and my favorite right here. More fromKnoxnews:

She funded the new business with money from her divorce from Bruce Pearl, the University of Tennessee men’s basketball coach.

The name is aggressive, Shrigley said. But, “It’s mine.”

She acknowledged that people will likely associate her with her marriage to and divorce from Pearl. Her former husband, who will earn $1.6 million this season as coach of the men’s basketball team, filed for divorce in September 2007.

But “If I can turn that negative into a positive, I can use that for a little while,” she said.

A 15 percent discount is offered to clients who receive alimony. No divorce papers are needed for proof, she said.
