I couldn't decide where to post this, so if somebody feels it should be moved, that's fine. I hate to call a murderer a "celebrity" but Betty certainly is scary.
This story fascinates me. Betty married Dan, and birthed & reared his children while he climbed the corporate ladder as a snazzy up-&-coming attorney. She wore discount clothes & used a laundromat for herself & 4 kids, while Dan wore expensive suits & earned the nickname "Dapper Dan." He worked extremely long hours, and was heavily involved in the social aspects of professional networking. Betty, by most accounts, was a devoted mother.
Dan was rather nerdy when young, but became quite handsome as he matured. Betty, on the other hand, became arguably less attractive as she aged. The inevitable happened, and Dan began an affair with Linda, a young pretty woman hired to be Dan's assistant.
Most of you probably know the story, but in a nutshell, Dan left Betty for Linda, and Betty, er, um, didn't take it well. She plowed her car into Dan's house. She left long vulgar messages on their answering machine. She dumped all the kids at Dan's, thinking that the responsibilities of children would take the shine off Dan & Linda's romance. It didn't, and they married. The kids appeared to adapt well to life with their father & new wife, and seemed to like Linda.
Betty ended up shooting Dan & Linda in their bed, and later professing that her intent was to commit suicide. After 2 trials, she was found guilty, and is in prison to this day. She has not expressed remorse.
In a way, I can empathize with Betty's pain. She raised the man's children and sacrificed for him while he built his career. Even so, there is no denying that she brutally killed two defenseless people.
What do you think?
