Kaley Cuoco is a beautiful soul — and a wise one. She “loves hard,” she admits — and she just handles the consequences. One being that love might end. (It often does — you’ve heard the songs.) But that doesn’t mean Cuoco must handle those consequences unprepared. The actress and animal rights activist who grew up in show biz might have another career to fall back on if she gets tired of being America’s Sweetheart: she’s a pretty good negotiator. The pre-nup she put in place in the midst of a white hot romance saved her fortune.
Just because Cuoco fell in love so hard with Ryan Sweeting, and just because she married him just months after they met — that doesn’t mean she didn’t have her wits about her. Sure she rushes in, but she’s no fool. Cuoco’s divorce settlement was finalized last week — it’s officially over. But the details of the divorce were never something she had to worry much about. Because even when she’s busy loving at a fever pitch, Cuoco stays cool in the heat and remembers to protect herself. She got to keep every penny of her $72 million The Big Bang Theory salary, for instance. And, you know, some houses and stuff.
