NEW YORK, NY — Finance maven and best-selling author Suze Orman told the New York Times Magazine in an interview that if she could marry her partner Kathy Travis, it would save them both a lot of money.
"Both of us have millions of dollars in our name," she told the New York Times Magazine in its Feb. 25 edition. "It's killing me that upon death, K.T. is going to lose 50 percent of everything I have to estate taxes. Or vice versa."
The host of CNBC's "The Suze Orman Show" talked about her seven-year relationship with Travis and her personal finances.
According to Business Week, Orman has a liquid net worth of about $25 million and real estate holdings of $7 million. She told the Times that she enjoys spending money and playing the stock market.
Business Week also reports that Orman said she has about a million dollars in the market, "because if I lose a million dollars, I don't personally care."
According to her bio on CNBC, Orman was a vice president of investments at Prudential Bache Securities and an account executive at Merrill Lynch. Her books The Money Book for the Young, Fabulous & Broke and The Courage to Be Rich were New York Times bestsellers.
Her latest book, Women & Money, is due out in March. – Issued by Gay Link Content
