Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore Invited to Stay at the 'Divorce Hotel'

Ashton Kutcher, Demi MooreCougar Couple poster children Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore have been hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons lately thanks to his alleged infidelity. Now, amid all the divorce speculation comes an offer for the pair to divorce quickly, cheaply and efficiently. The only snag is that it might also be televised.

'The New York Post'
reports that 'Divorce Hotel' managing director Jim Halfens has written to the couple inviting them to be his first stateside guests. Divorce Hotel is a real company in the Netherlands (gotta love those down-to-earth Dutch), which offers affordable quickie divorces in hotels at either a fixed price or by the hour.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Halfens' company -- which is launching in the U.S. in the spring -- caught the eye of a reality TV producer. Mickey Stern ('Mega Cities,' 'Known Universe') says his plans for a 'Divorce Hotel' TV series has attracted interest from several networks, and that the show could be on the air next year. Hey, all those unhappy 'Bachelor' couples could just segue straight over to the 'Divorce Hotel' when they're done.

In his invitation to Demi and Ashton, Halfens says "Divorce Hotel is committed to reducing all stressors related to the divorce process. ... We alleviate these issues and execute clean, cost-effective divorces in as few as two and a half days by streamlining the process with an on-site team of attorneys, counselors, and mediators. No divorce program is more efficient and accommodating than ours. ... Contrary to popular belief, a successful divorce is actually a team effort, allowing both parties to start a new chapter in their lives with the lowest possible expenditure of time, money, and emotional energy."

As part of Halfens' plans to take the company global, Divorce Hotel will offer its services to potential clients in the U.S. via a number of luxury resorts. For around $3,500 a couple can check in together as a married couple after work Friday, and then check out Monday morning as legally divorced singletons. Or, you could just apply to be on the TV show and maybe get divorced for free.

"We will have license mediators and attorneys in whichever state this takes place or whichever state has jurisdiction over the marriage," says Stern.

Divorce Hotel's website sums up its modus operandi thus: "We offer you an affordable 5 star divorce made-to-measure. Whether you wish to divorce together or without your partner, at a low hourly rate or for a fixed price, you are the one who determines the manner in which we can be for service to you!"

We're thinking that if Demi and Ashton aren't interested, maybe Kim and Kris would be. Could 'Divorce Hotel' be the next stop for the Kardashian reality juggernaut?
