  1. Good morning.

    I was just thinking about a particular cruelty of Drew’s towards Stacy and thought I’d repeat it in case anyone who reads here didn’t know.

    While Stacy’s sister was terminally ill, he limited the length and frequency of her visits, and during one visit, got rid of Stacy’s pet dog. At the funeral he accused her of carrying on with the bereaved brother-in-law.

    That’s above and beyond just being unfaithful, keeping her short of money etc. No wonder she needed help fom a doctor…not gonna get any from him.

    Bucket: I will put it up on youtube

    Christine said it was a stunt by “The Dream team” for Drew to get “more” media.

    They are all sick sob’s and should be ashamed of themselves.

    They should ALL quit NOW!

  3. Thanks for you-tubing. I appreciate it. This is wonderful. It’s the best thing to expose not DP (we have all of that duck’s information) but his famewhore supporters and partners in the quest for riches and fame off of the suffering of DP’s children and the corpses of Kitty and Stacy.

    DREW PETERSON UPDATE – INSIDE THE GRAND JURY & A MEETING WITH DREW’S FIANCEE
    Date Sunday, February 1, 2009 at 06:00AM

    MY CONVERSATION WITH DREW’S EX-Fiancée – CHRISTINA RAINES

    Last Friday night, January 30, I met Drew’s now ex-fiancée and spoke with her for a bit. She shared with me a lot about the relationship she & Drew shared. Out of respect for her, I will not disclose the content of our conversation; however, I want to share a couple of my observations: Christina came across as a really nice girl who got in over her head. I don’t think she got involved with Drew because of any desire to get some media attention. In fact, she mentioned that one TV show offered her money for the interview, which I have been told is not ethical. She, like most 24-year olds, appeared quite naive still and somewhat shy. Also, I think she felt bad about everything that happened. While we spoke, her boyfriend, Mike (with whom she has moved back), stood by her side with smoke coming from his ears. He spoke with such energy about how he feels he saved Christina from a possible death sentence. But at the same time, he was happy to have his girlfriend back with him, by his side. I’ll share more about this conversation after her first public interview.

    MY VISIT INSIDE THE PETERSON GRAND JURY

    Many people have been asking me about my involvement in the Drew Peterson case since it was reported that I accompanied Kathleen Savio’s nephew, Charlie Doman, into the Grand Jury. Article here and below. Charlie Doman – nephew to Kathleen Savio Of course, I cannot and will not discuss any part of the Grand Jury proceeding. What I can say, however, is that being a part of the GJ was the most memorable experience of my career. Charlie previously spoke with Greta Van Susteren here and shared his feelings about how he and the Savio family felt that IL State Police ignored investigating the posibility that Kathleen was murdered. Remember, her death was orginally ruled an accidental death. It was not re-classified until AFTER Stacy disappeared and Kitty’s body was exhumed by Dr. Michael Baden who then ruled her death a homicide.

    I’ll share more about this conversation after her first public interview.

    I think it will be interesting what Christina had to say to Tamara.

  5. Chrissy said it was a stunt.

    Looks like she is being represented by Lisa Bloom…

    Said they were never “engaged”!

    Refused to answer questions about whether or not she thought he was guilty in either case or whether he discussed them with her.

    Said she didn’t feel comfortable answering them at this time.

    Wonder if that means she is “singing” to ISP?

  6. “Engagement” To Drew Peterson Was “Stunt”
    Christina Raines, 24, removed her belongings from Drew Peterson’s home as the woman’s father, Ernest Raines, looked on, along with an Early Show camera crew and officers from Peterson’s former department.

    Peterson, 55, had reached the rank of sergeant with the Bolingbrook, Ill. police.

    Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacey Peterson disappeared in October 2007. She was 23. Peterson hasn’t been charged, but authorities have said they are investigating the disappearance as a possible homicide.

    Peterson has denied any involvement in the disappearance and has maintained he believes she left him for another man.

    Authorities also are investigating the death of Peterson’s third wife, Kathleen Savio, whose body was found in an empty bathtub in her house in 2004. After Stacy Peterson disappeared, authorities reopened the investigation of Savio’s death, which was originally classified as an accident. Her body was exhumed and her death was reclassified as a homicide following an autopsy.

    On Friday, Peterson initially refused to allow Christina to take her belongings from her home, despite Ernest’s angry demands that Peterson do so, as Early Show cameras rolled from a distance. Ernest, angrily shouting through the front door to Peterson that he was “fooling with the wrong guy,” called police.

    Peterson then let Christina remove her things from his home.

    Referring to the incident on The Early Show Monday, Ernest quoted an old Johnny Cash tune in saying he and Christina had beaten the devil. “That’s what we did,” Ernest told co-anchor Julie Chen “We beat the devil.”

    An emotional Christina, frequently pausing for long periods, told Chen she first met Peterson when she was 15, but met him again more recently at a bar.

    Ernest says Peterson began pursuing a relationship with his daughter, who wound up moving in with Peterson.

    “He was very kind to me,” and was never violent toward her, Christina told Chen. He was also a “great father,” Christina added.

    Christina said he didn’t “feel comfortable” answering Chen’s questions about Stacey Peterson or any possible Drew Peterson role in her disappearance. Christina said she had met Stacey Peterson.

    “I’m a good person and I have a good heart,” Christina remarked. “And instead of following with my head, I followed with my heart,” and allowed the relationship with Drew Peterson to grow. “I don’t love him,” though at one point, “I thought I did,” Christina continued.

    When asked how she had come to get engaged to Peterson, Christina responded, “It was never an engagement.”

    “What was it, then?”

    “It was more like a stunt.”

    “A stunt?”

    “Yes.”

    “On whose part?”

    “On Drew’s, so he could be in the media,” Christina said. “He had told me that his lawyer had wanted him to be in the media and wanted to propose to someone at a restaurant.”

    Peterson encouraged Christina to become part of the setup, Christina told Chen, saying, “That’s how it went down, but I would not go with it. I would not go along with it. I told him ‘no.’ And he had said, ‘Well, if it comes out that I am engaged to someone, it’s not really true.” ‘

    “So,” Chen asked, “you were never engaged to him, is that what you’re saying?”

    “No,” Christina replied, “I was never engaged to him.”

    “But he was putting it out there that he was engaged?”

    “That he was engaged.”

    “To you?”

    “He had told me that he never said it was me, (that) he never said that he was engaged to me. But I have heard that, like, off camera, he had told a producer, a publicist, that it was me.”

    Christina said it was several days of conversation with an ex-boyfriend with whom she’d been living, Mike, that led to her moving out of Peterson’s house.

    “(Mike) was telling me, you know, ‘this is not right. He’s not a good guy.’ (It) just kind of opened up my eyes. A lot of things made sense. And he guided me from Monday through Thursday. And Thursday’s when Mike had asked me to move back in.”

    CBS News legal analyst Lisa Bloom told Chen Drew Peterson “can get engaged, but legally, he cannot get married. He is still legally married to Stacey Peterson, who is missing, been missing for over a year. And her clothes are still in that house. … They’re still in the closets. She’s still a presence.

  7. Good morning, everyone.

    Links are going to the wayside again, so I’ll split this up:

    h t t p://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/02/02/earlyshow/main4768636.shtml

  8. Here’s the interview:

    h t t p://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-090202-drew-peterson-cbs-video,0,4737241.htmlstory

  9. I smell stunt everytime that information comes from Armstrong saying that Drew told him stuff and then Drew petends to be surprised that the information was made public.

    Drew is a legend in his own mind. He’s still gets some local news followings but his national spotlight has pretty much dried up. That’s why NO news crew (other than CBS who was called by Ernie Raines) was at his house after that incredibly insane interview. No one other than those of us on these forums even gives a rat’s ass about Drew anymore. Poor Drew is losing his celebrity status and even when he does something really stupid it is only in the news for a day or two at the most.

    Next thing you know he’ll be shaving his head, getting out of cars where you can tell he’s not wearing underwear, and kissing other men just to get some attention..,

  10. I guess that I hadn’t thought that Drew would have the girl know she was part of a stunt though. So that was surprising to read.

    Guess Drew and his team have no problem dragging innocent kids into schemes and then they will blame the other people of being the ones that are causing harm to his kids.

  11. Blago is stealing his spotlight & he doesn’t like it.

    Two narcissists looking to top each other.

    One can only wonder what Drew’s next STUNT will be!!

  12. She “doesn’t feel comfortable” answering some questions.

    I still hope to high heaven she was as much a stunt on her part as he used her as a stunt.

    His brain is so fried now, he’s too stupid and feeble to do anything logical anymore.

    Buh bye, Dopehead.

  13. Did the little kids of his realize this was a stunt?

    How cruel to move her in & the little ones get attached to having a woman around.

    Sick, he doesn’t care about those kids, they are useful pawns right now for him.

  14. luvpups // February 2, 2009 at 9:15 am

    Did the little kids of his realize this was a stunt?

    *************

    Oh, yeah, but Boobsky put his outraged self out there last summer when he lashed out and ripped apart Lenny & Paula for befriending Drew’s kids, and then leaving abruptly because they were wearing wires. Remember that? He wrote a letter saying how psychologically damaged those kids were because of that.

    Boobsky is going to be the laughing stock of the nation, whether he comes out and denies he had any involvement in this or not. No one believes a word that comes out of his client’s mouth, his publicist’s mouth nor his mouth. They’ve buried themselves in such a deep hole, they’ll never dig themselves out.

    Good riddance. Hope Sellit is proud of himself.

  15. Psychological damage when it suits them, just like everything else!

    I think DP, JB and anyone associated with them, must have a screw loose!

  16. Wow – I just got up and watched the appearance on the Early show that I recorded. Still wrapping my head around the idea behind an engagement ‘stunt’. Going to read what everyone has posted!

  17. Okay, folks. Here’s the silly, idiot dissertation Boobsky wrote last summer about how the ISP was allowing Dopehead’s children to be psychologically damaged when Lenny and Paula were wearing wires.

    Now, just change the names around. Plug in Dopehead, Boobsky and Sellit for the ones responsible, and you’ll be good to go.

    Boobsky and Sellit – the enablers!!!!!!!!

    ILLINOIS STATE POLICE ARE GUILTY OF

    PSYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE OF PETERSON CHILDREN

    If in fact Len Wawczak and Paula Stark are undercover informants who wore an
    eavesdropping device on Drew Peterson with the approval of the Illinois State Police (ISP),
    there is one thing that is unforgivably outrageous about this. I am not worried about the contents of the recordings because (A) Drew is innocent and therefore has nothing
    incriminating to say, and (B) I suspected Wawczak and Stark were working for the ISP for some time, (especially after the revolver Drew legally transferred to them turned up in the hands of the ISP).

    No, what is highly disturbing is how the ISP has allowed Drew’s children to be severely
    damaged by the behavior of these informants.
    What you have to understand is that wire wearing, undercover informants are closely monitored. Their tapes are reviewed constantly, and they are debriefed on a regular basis so the police can know what they are doing, approve, correct, and direct their behavior. The ISP knowingly allowed, or perhaps even directed, Wawczak and Stark to become close with the Peterson children; Tom (15), Chris (13), Anthony (4) and Lacy (3). These innocent children became very attached to Wawczak and Stark. Lacy, who needs female attention, became particularly attached to, and even loved, Paula Stark. The boys also became quite close with Len Wawczak, who’s typical immature and sophomoric behavior is particularly appealing to the teenage boys.

    Now these children have to be told that it was all an act. Wawczak and Stark really didn’t love them, they were pretending. Worse they were pretending in order to trap their father, who they dearly love, in order to take him away from them. When Lacy, the beautiful 3
    year old, asks for Paula, what can Drew tell her? When he tells Lacy that she won’t be able to see Stark again, what will happen to that little girl? Her heart will break. When she learns that Stark was only around to work with the police to try to take her daddy away, what will she think? What about the boys. How will they ever be able to trust anyone again when they discover that Wawczak was not really interested in them, but only came around so often to work for the police who are after their dad. The children will be psychologically scarred for life because of what Wawczak and Stark did, with the blessing, support, help, and encouragement of the Illinois State Police. What happened here is nothing less than the state sponsored psychological torture of these children.

    By law Drew has to be notified that he was being recorded shortly after the eavesdropping ends. Therefore the ISP had to know that the relationship that they were allowing, and encouraging, Wawczak and Stark to establish with the Peterson children would end in this manner. Yet they allowed this to continue, and made no provision to minimize the extreme collateral damage to the children psychological health. What were they thinking?

    And the question has to be asked, are there any limits to what is acceptable in the Drew
    Peterson investigation? Are there any limits, no matter who is hurt and what means are used?

    Do the ends always justify the means, even when the means leave small children with
    permanent psychological scars?

    Page 2 (cont.)

    Why did the ISP even use such despicable characters as Wawczak and Stark? Their
    background, (which is now being exposed by the media), and Wawczak’s loose cannon antics,
    make them about as bad a choice for informants as one can make. Wawczak’s own public statements show how much of an idiot he is. For example, in Wawczak’s comment to the press, after his release from jail yesterday, he tried to justify his attacked on Drew in a barber shop parking lot saying that Drew gave his son a dirty look, thereby messing with his family, is about as dumb as it gets. If that is justification, then Drew should be allowed to beat Wawczak with a red hot poker for how Wawczak and Stark messed with Drew’s family.

    Finally, the public needs to hold the ISP responsible for investigative techniques that
    severely harm innocent children. The response that Drew caused this entire chain of events
    because of some wrongdoing on his part presumes his guilt. In the United States we do not presume guilt, we presume innocence. Whatever else you believe about him, Drew Peterson is universally acknowledged to be a great dad. Anyone who has seen him with his children can confirm this, (even the media). If you are outraged by the police sponsored psychological torture of the Peterson children, express your anger publicly. The ends do not justify the means, and it is not acceptable to harm innocent children for any reason. Not in America, not in Illinois, not in Will County, and in fact not anywhere in the world.

    Joel A. Brodsky
    July 26, 2008

  18. I guess I would just echo a lot of what you guys have said.

    I knew Drew’s team seemed to want to constantly keep his name in the media, but I guess I always thought there was some strategic reason that had to do with the legal defense of Drew. I’m surprised and disgusted to see that it’s actually more about obtaining and maintaining ‘celebrity status’ for Drew so that his hangers-on can continue to make money from this situation – the tragic death of one wife and the disappearance of another. The depths that this whole group has sunk to is a little overwhelming for me.

    Other people had it right and have had it right for a while, but I kept on thinking that they couldn’t be that insensitive to Drew’s own kids and to the families of these women.

    I always maintained that although Brodsky’s methods were unconventional that he really was attempting some sort of novel defense strategy. But he’s actually just a pig. Glenn Selig – pig. Derek Armstrong – pig. Drew? There really are no words…

  19. This is the best line of all, Boobsky, except I am putting in YOUR name for the responsible party:

    Now these children have to be told that it was all an act. Peterson, Brodsky and Sellig really didn’t love them, they were pretending.

  20. How ’bout we put Brodsky’s name in this sentence:

    If you are outraged by Brodsky’s sponsored psychological torture of the Peterson children, express your anger publicly. The ends do not justify the means, and it is not acceptable to harm innocent children for any reason. Not in America, not in Illinois, not in Will County, and in fact not anywhere in the world.

  21. This is precious, taken from Brodsky’s letter above:

    Finally, the public needs to hold the ISP responsible for investigative techniques that
    severely harm innocent children.

    **********

    Maybe there’s a few agencies that will hold Brodsky and Sellig responsible for their techniques that severely harm innocent children.

  22. Brodsky last week:
    It’s a shame that Ernie Raines has turned his daughter into a Jerry Springeresque media figure. This all could have been handled quietly and privately.

    Was he trying to be professional?

    Who is he fooling now?

    Brodsky is the lowest of the low.

  23. Ah, the deny, deny, deny claims are starting:
    (sorry, have to break up the link because they’re going to the wayside)

    h t t p://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news&id=6636635

    Peterson’s lead attorney — Joel Brodsky — adamantly denies Raines’ allegation and says he even took efforts to keep the engagement quiet.

  24. I kind of believe Chrissie on this one. It sounds a lot like other things Drew has attempted to cook up.

    For instance, when he tried to sell on Joe Hosey on Kim M being pregnant, just so at a later date he could announce that he’d had a vasectomy and make Hosey look like a fool.

    Drew is still playing the con.

    Drew Peterson’s Attorney Responds to Comments Made By Peterson’s Ex-Fiancee on ‘The Early Show’
    Joel Brodsky issues a statement responding to comments made by Christina Raines.
    brodskyodeh.com – February 02, 2009

    (PRNewsChannel) / Chicago, Ill. / The following is a statement from Joel Brodsky, one of the attorneys for Drew Peterson, responding to comments made this morning by Peterson’s former fiancee on CBS’ ‘The Early Show.’

    “It’s very unfortunate that Ernie Raines has dragged his daughter Christina Raines before the cameras and turned her into a Jerry Springer-esque media figure.

    “Mr. Peterson’s engagement to Christina was not a publicity stunt. However, it appears that their recent breakup is a publicity grab orchestrated by Christina’s father, Ernie Raines.

    “It is Ernie Raines who put his duaghter on national television. It is Ernie Raines who brought the cameras along when he went to help Christina move out. It is Ernie Raines who cried on ‘Dr. Phil’ about his daughter. It is Ernie Raines who threatened to drive his car through Mr. Peterson’s house.

    “If there’s any publicity stunt going on, it’s being organized by Ernie Raines.
    On the other hand, Mr. Peterson never put Christina on TV and always tried to protect her and her children against media intrusion. He never put her on television, never made her talk to the media, and did not even allow her picture to be taken for the papers.

    “Unlike her father, Mr. Peterson tried to keep Christina out of the news.

    “We vehemently deny that the engagement was a publicity stunt orchestrated by me. The undisputed facts are that Christina asked Drew to marry her multiple times; that Drew asked Christina to marry him once; Christina accepted and a ring was given. This constitutes an engagement.”

  26. Someone posted 3 identical comments at the CBS vid saying Chrissie looked high on drugs. Quick smear! I think she looked scared and worried.

    It isn’t just all about DP’s media appearances to keep his profile high…if they only have Armie’s booksales for income, they’re gonna need lots of topping up with appearance fees.

  27. Dopehead is going to be arrested any time now. His credibility (not that he ever had any) is in the toilet. What sane jury will believe anything he says?

    Like, why he was driving by the Canal looking for Stacy and the car, when he said earlier that she called him and said she left the car at the airport and she took off with another man?

    Not only does he make outrageous statements and do outrageous things, but his lawyer and his publicist help him.

    Ah, it’s all coming together now. Soon. Very soon.

  28. Facs – thanks for the info.

    Sure, we all believe Brodsky and Peterson, don’t we?

    Guess all Brodsky needs to be concerned about is how this affects his potential future clients calling him for representation, heh?

    Or, Sellig, having clients calling him and wanting to be represented in the media by him.

    It’s all relative now.

  29. “We vehemently deny that the engagement was a publicity stunt orchestrated by me. The undisputed facts are that Christina asked Drew to marry her multiple times; that Drew asked Christina to marry him once; Christina accepted and a ring was given. This constitutes an engagement.”
    * * * * *

    Undisputed facts?

    You can vehemently deny as much as you like, Bratsky, but afraid no one believes you. Just like your client! well done.

  30. Hiya Bucket. I think this is all wonderful! No one believes any of the stooges. They can vehemently deny all they want.

    Chrissy Raines is the story now, and the media wants HER, not Peterson, to talk!

  31. “It’s very unfortunate that Ernie Raines has dragged his daughter Christina Raines before the cameras and turned her into a Jerry Springer-esque media figure.

    ********

    Who has dragged his kids into the spotlight with all of his Mr. Mom appearances on tv?

    STFU, Brodsky.

  32. No, no publicity stunt for Ernie Raines. Bringing along a camera seemed like a sensible protective measure, considering the circumstances….and all the other pleas he made. Not publicity, real fear.

  33. “We vehemently deny that the engagement was a publicity stunt orchestrated by me. The undisputed facts are that Christina asked Drew to marry her multiple times; that Drew asked Christina to marry him once; Christina accepted and a ring was given. This constitutes an engagement.”

    ************

    LOL, you know what this reminds me of?

    I know you are, but what am I?

    Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  34. I wonder…….How many more days until an
    indictment ??

    I wonder…How much more ridiculous is this
    all going to get ?

    I wonder…Will there ever be justice for Kathleen? Or Stacy ? Or Lisa ??

    I wonder…How much longer can this GJ go on ?

  35. I would like to hear from Earnest Raines about the ring he was waving in front of the cameras.

    Or maybe I don’t.

    Can we please have an arrest, now?

  36. That the engagement was a stunt I can totally believe as it never made sense from the word go, but I still have a big problem with Christina moving into Drews house.

    If Christina didn’t want to be part of this stunt and was puhed into it by Drew and his stunt team, I can somehow understand the engagement part, but I cannot fathom the moving into his house bit.

    I also don’t understand why JB isn’t disbarred yet !

  37. JAH – I feel the same. I’ll give girlfriend some cred for not wanting to be part of the ‘engagement leak stunt’, and for finally realizing that she didn’t want to be used and discarded. But I still want to give her a good smack for succumbing to Drew’s questionable charms for even a minute, much less moving her kids into that man’s house. What was she trying to prove? Is he really that good of a manipulator?

    As for Joel’s accusations that Ernie Raines is pulling a media stunt, I don’t buy it. I think like most people in a high profile case, Ernie was probably approached by media types offering to ‘help’ (cough Dr. Phil, Cough CBS) in exchange for exclusive coverage, and he took them up on the offer. The man does not strike me as a fame-whore. I think he comes off as a pretty genuine guy, who didn’t run from the media when they knocked on his door, and who used it in order to get his daughter out of the house.

    That said, I reserve the right to become indignant and disgusted if he continues to grant interview after interview now that Chrissy is safely away from Drew.

  38. I am so with you JAH. That fat little brazen slimeball Bratsky has got it coming. As we saw, he doesn’t even mind promoting himself and his firm by issuing a PR about dead Gazan clients. (Gaza being good for google news) . How does he sleep at night?

  39. Didn’t you know, it’s called the “Drew Peterson Limbo” and it’s all the rage!

    You play it by compromising every moral or ethical impulse you have while the others stand around you and chant, “How low can you go? How low can you go!?”

    Tiki torches optional.

    How to Bury Negative News on the Internet
    ………………………A growing number of companies are using SEO press releases to bury negative blog postings says a SEO press release writing specialist. “Companies sometimes get criticized and those negative blog postings often appear in the top 10 in Google when searching the company name,” says Glenn Selig, founder of PRNewsChannel……………. But the bottom line, says Selig, is search engine optimized press releases can help “push down” bad news that may be costing you customers or business. “I help large and small companies use this secret weapon all the time,” says Selig. “And it works like a charm.”

    Does Reem really know what is going on?

    He was saving that story for just this occasion.
    I don’t know which one is lower, Drew Peterson, Joel Brodsky, or Glenn Selig

    (full names are for SEO) lol

  41. I knew it wouldn’t be long before Drew called Chrissy and Ernie liars.

    But IMO it is obvious who (Drew) the person responsible (Drew) for causing psychological harm (Drew) to the (Drew) Peterson children is.

  42. Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky Joel Brodsky

  43. You are right noway.
    But, Drew does have help though.
    Whose idea was it to “get engaged for more media coverage?

  44. Noway we sent a scout out to get you from the other thread, but she never returned. Probably at the bottom of a crevasse…

  45. I’ve just had a look back to see what else was going on on the day Bratsky PRed the dead Gazans. That was Jan 12, the Monday after the weekend that NBC was trailing MrMomII and the police turned up at Chez le Suspect.

  46. I have a wacky theory:

    Ernie and Chrissy took the ring to LE. LE told them that it had once been Stacy’s. Chrissy goes ballistic becase Drew had assured her that it was brand new from his jeweler friend (or Jared’s). Chrissy can’t take any more of Drew’s lies. She agrees to work with LE. During appearance on Early show she has LE talking in her ear. Any time she is asked something that pertains to the ongoing investigation they say, “Don’t answer.” So she sits there like a dummy. The voice in her ear says “Say you aren’t comfortable answering”, so she switches to that.

    Question: Why did she freeze up when asked about Stacy’s clothes still being in the house? There was a whole press release about moving Stacy’s clothes out to make room for Chrissy’s so why did she clam up?

    Forgive me letting my imagination go wild. I’m just trying to make some sense of this…

  47. …but I still think it could have just been how she is/ scared. It’s probably still emotional. Do you ever do that? When something’s just happened, it takes awhile to process it…especially emotionally, so it’s common to take a long time to answer.

  48. Maybe Brodders thinks it’s game-almost-over. Could this all be part of the “new evidence” touted?

    You’re all watching tv, aren’t you? lol

  49. Yes, I do also think it could simply be that she was overwhelmed so she shut down. Some people do that.

    I just don’t know.

  50. Bucket:
    Lisa Bloom calls it not a lie not a stunt. Questions Brodsky. Said she is “perplexed” he is doing all this media with his attorney’s blessing.

    Tamara said the conversation with Christina was”very, very disturbing” Drew tried to keep her away from her friends and family.

    That she saw a side of Drew that he suppressed, held back violence, because it might have been to early to “lift a hand or a fist at her”

    Lisa Bloom will be on “issues” on CNN HLN at 6.
    I hope she gives it to Brodsky.
    She came close here.

  51. It was a very strange interview indeed. I don’t know what to make of it. She seems scared and part of me wonders if she didn’t talk to LE and they asked her not to say things. But why go on the show then?

    It is obvious that Drew and his team would blame everyone else for his decisions and the fallout of another stupid interview he gave.

  52. doing my best, coffee, but if the scheme team aren’t actually using those tiki torches…..

    You were all probably thinking the same as I while Chrisina was saying how kind he was and not violent……”Of course, not yet

  53. Hey guys, missed me? My job doesn’t always give me alot of ‘personal time’ to access the internet, so sorry I haven’t posted here in a while but… my, my. What fun we’ve been having.

    We all knew Drew and Joel were fame hunger media whores who would kill their own mothers (wives?) to get on TV. I’ve said as much time and again. But now we’ve seen confirmation of this. Seems that Drew was hoping to get a ‘reality show’ (BARF) or some such drivel. Sounds about par for the course.

    Remember how he said he ‘hates the media’ and ‘wants to stop being followed.’ Well dumb *ss, maybe you should stop sending out pres releases and acting like a moron. Remember Craig Stebic? Probably not, because he has disappeared from the scene. And he’s even creepier than Drewpy, if thats possible.

    By the way, the media hates Drew, despite what some of you may think. They find him rude and disgusting, and he has hit on more than a few reporters. I can only wonder if that applies to Joe Hosey too?

    It also seems that, with Blago getting all the attention, Drew needs to ‘up his ante,’ so to speak. After all, Drew is supposed to be the most famous man in Illinois, maybe even America. Would that he would go overseas for a bit. I’d love to see him get his *** kicked over in Somalia or Gaza or somewhere where arrogant pri**s like him get what they deserve.

    By the way, before any of you try taking me to court, I am not in any way shape or form advocating violence against Drew. He wants that. I am convinced part of his act is to get someone to assualt him. Then he can sue them, maybe even imply that they killed Stacy. He might even win. So as vile and disgusting as Drew is, do not touch him. We can, however, make fun of him all we want. And there is nothing he can do about it because he’s the moron who made himself a public figure.

  54. By the by all, I figured some of you may find this of interest.

    Drew Peterson and his ‘girlfriend’ will appear on 890 WLS AM tomorrow (Tuesday, February 3rd), some time between 9:00 and 11:00 AM, on Mancow’s show.

    They are an ABC affiliate, located on 190 North State Street, wedged between a sub shop and a Borders book store. Drewpy will probably get there early, heading from Michigan, since he’ll stop by to see his ‘lawyers,’ and then bum around the area trying to be seen. Since he wants to be a celebrity, I’m sure you all can go to Borders and get him to sign a copy of his book. Personally, I’d prefer LaVey’s Satanic Bible more….

    They actually wanted to have him on today, but when they called him up he ‘got weird’ and insisted that he show up at the studio in person. He talked to Amy Jacobson, who was co-hosting today, and according to a contact of mine who was actually there, was ‘very weird’ to her…

    Why am I not surprised? He has hit on several other news women, so why not her? She is pretty cute. But poor Amy. First that doughy creep Stebic and now Peterson. Ewwww. She has not been having a good year…. lost her job and reputation because of CBS, got kicked out of her house, her apartment got burglarized and her husband is leaving her. I REALLY hope she doesn’t have to put up with Drewpy stalking her too…

    Seriously, I can’t help but wonder what his angle is? Drew WANTS to be live in the studio. He was adamant about that much. Why? He needs to be seen, but he also wants to try charming the cast and crew, I’m sure. I’m looking forward to what my contacts over at ABC can provide me with about tomorrow…

    I’m also curious to see who his new ‘girlfriend’ is… My first bet was Brodsky, to be really honest, but maybe that’s my WIT talking.

    Be careful, it bites.

  55. I wonder….Does anyone REALLY want to hear
    anything from this man other than WHERE he put STACY ??

    Ok…back to my corner now. 😉

    Girlfriend?

    Is this a backup to Chrissy Raines? Or is she now his girlfriend and not ex-fiancée?

    I figure it is always worth it to hear Drew get caught in another lie, so I’ll try to listen. While an arrest on radio wouldn’t give him the publicity he craves, it would prevent us from having to see the bags under his eyes …

  57. He wants to keep movin’. It’s a bit scary. I hope he’s not going there to take hostages. I think he thinks the jig may well be up this time, and figures he’s safer to be collared in public? Or is he making an appointment which he doesn’t intend to keep, going on the lam instead?

    Who’s babysitting?

    “Searches For Stacy Ann Peterson

    Search efforts will be beginning again, in the spring of 2009. The family and friends of Stacy Peterson need your help searching. Please come back soon, for search information.”
    ———————
    Missed this last time I was here.
    Hope and pray Stacy can be found!

  60. Good Evening All,

    Just read back on all of your posts. Was able to read Hosey article of the CBS Morning Show and than the PR from Selig on Brodsky. Still funny to see the high profile PR firm doesn’t use spell check.

    Also, intersting to see the StacyAnn web site. Glad to hear searches will begin again in the Spring. If I’m in town, will be out there to help.

    Hopefully by the spring, there will be an arrest.

    Also, wondering if Christina will be called to the GJ now?

  61. This is about someone else, Mark Jensen, but it sure sounds like you know who.

    I came across it while looking for Christina on you tube (no luck) I have a firewall issue with cnn videos. Who do they think I am? China?

  62. Hi Whitesoxfan ~

    In all honestly, and IMHO, I don’t know why anyone else would need to be called to the GJ. At this point, I’d assume the GJ has heard enough of what they need to to hand down an indictment, and any additional witnesses could be used at a future trial.

    My thoughts are that LE is letting the goof continue to blab and blob all he wants, and it’s only working against him instead of for him. He’s got zero credibility, so does his attorney, and his PR agent is a sell-out.

    Dopehead looks terrible, as though he’s worn down to pretty much nothing, and he’s so screwed up, I doubt he could answer a question in logical order if he had to.

  63. Rescue,

    Good points and agree. Just watched the video of the interview again and Christina is very shy and seems afraid of talking too much.

  64. I read on another forum that Ernie Raines appeared on a Fox show (don’t know which one) and he said that Drew had wanted Christina to get involved in a reality show that would have paid him $300k. Chrissy refused.

    Joel Brodsky denied this of course saying, “Who would pay Drew $300k for a reality show?”

    If anyone finds the story or clip please post it here. I’d like to see it!

  65. For facs. I haven’t posted here in a while. Found this at SYM:

    http://www.foxnews.com/video-search/m/21823539/she_never_accepted.htm

    Transcript:
    ” The cop who keeps losing his wives he’s drew Peterson he’s apparently never engaged to his so called fifth Beyonce. That’s what they’re trying to get us to believe now they were never actually engaged this woman with a two kids who supposedly moved out last week with a much fanfare in an interview today. This supposed fiance called the whole thing a stunt. Here she is two point four year old Christina rains. Appeared to have dumped Peterson — 55 years old just last week she’d been living in this house. Here’s how she described their relationship on CBS’s early show this morning listen.”

    ” She loved her and engagement. What was it and.”

    ” This — to start. A stunt yes on whose part. — can be in the media. Did you know it was a stunt when. He had tunnel that his lawyer had wanted him to. CNN media and want to propose to. Someone at her restaurant. And still what happened so he — you were friends — dating you want to be part of this stunt is that how went down. Don’t — went down but I would not. Go with that I would not go along with that what would you say again. I told him knowing he had — I’d love to comes out that I am engaged to someone and it’s not really sure. So you never engage in these are saying. — I was having engaged to him.”

    ” Well we spoke to her father on studio B on Friday he says he tried to help his daughter move out. The 911 was called we got to turn that — down — eleven run that Peterson would not let him in the house so he called 911 for police escort. We’re told Christina range is now living with her with another boyfriend. Drew Peterson of course is still married to his fourth wife. She disappeared more than a year ago police say he’s a suspect and he’s also person of interest in the murder of his third wife who somehow drowned in the dry bathtub. He’s not been charged in either case Ernie Raines has been good enough to join us here on the phone again today mr. rates could talk to thank you. You’re welcome the follower of the supposed be — I’m great I gotta tell you though mr. — I’m very confused. I mean they were living together your daughter and her two children and and drew Peterson who keeps losing his wives they were all living together right.”

    ” Yes but what would drool he’s not yet completed it and he’s very control bowl and eat what he did was she walked in my daughter’s heart and he used are basically try to make an awful lot of her. It try to get hurt to make. Money for him or that reality show what she was also begin — your thousand now.”

    ” So that’s what this was all about he was trying to get on reality show and take a — pay off. Just trying to use her for a publicity like our daughter Serb. Did she realize city this is going on I mean why why not — great kids did she move in with him did he act like he was all in her and she ended down when.”

    ” Yeah he he’s seen binder and binders and talkin’ might start her own and gold ball might knowledgeable why I couldn’t look like that in the — this CD manipulated her — Being good for her kids to achieve cool. Did if he was go to nice for the kids. All of this get a big great guy he could do that so we — what the boat in the model worked at.”

    ” Mr. — viewers who were with us on Friday know that you told me on this program you were afraid he was going to kill your daughter did she have similar fears. I believe she did she was afraid drew Peterson’s going to kill her two top.”

    ” I can’t speak for her but I I can speak for me I look at the man he is in the thing that got me was. How how how we can you — glad you’re still married you have of course you have both colder. — boldly go where your wipers when they’re ready to — the somebody else so you must know he must know GA comin’ back. That’s why he’s what would that. I didn’t know — billboards he’s dead he’s supposed large he’s also find out what he’s at. As they grieve really a better read something before it does say well they couldn’t back let this get married — even the worst yet.”

    ” What as your daughter who was living with this drew Peterson said since she moved out. What does she feel yeah and what is she said about their time together.”

    ” Well that that bad like give her really disgust but look what we need Bob. Best — she has to say but she did Darby that. It all. In the beginning he was good you know and good for the kids you would use and use a migraine kids who need to allow my daughter would. If he didn’t treat it right she ruled that you believed him a role missiles at before it.”

    ” But I’m sort of strange before I have to go like you you said he’s looking for big payday from. For reality TV show some 300000 out there is there any possibility that that your daughter might be able to get some some money out of this is well.”

    ” Well he he told my daughter the gold put him. Also — they did on it. Although it was not an oh run over. We won’t you come to the show we can get through — thousand dollars might go to the door anyways my daughter don’t like the publicity. My daughter — Michael normal TV — I had a heck of a kind. Trying to get her and today. She damage. She don’t — don’t like this he’s not cool.”

    ” So that they were living together was the truth but that they were engaged never was the truth for you thought they were engaged right if you told me they work.”

    ” Well that’s that’s what that’s what he said. — that they were engaged this source said it well she he proposed the vote she’d ever accept that on mr. range. We wish you godspeed keep us updated on what’s going on here. While I got her out of there and that that was my — that certain people might think he served appreciated very much.”

  66. Drew Peterson’s former flame spilled her story on national television Monday — but the cops want to hear more.

    The state police, who are investigating the mysterious slaying of Peterson’s third wife and the disappearance of his fourth, also want to get a look at the ring Peterson gave the young woman who spent a few weeks under his roof after he supposedly asked her to marry him.

    “The state police are coming tomorrow to pick up my daughter, and they want the ring,” said Ernie Raines, whose daughter Christina moved in with Peterson in December but left Friday morning.

    A CBS camera crew filmed the end of the affair, taping Ernie Raines as he demanded his daughter’s property back from Peterson. Ernie Raines appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show that afternoon, and his daughter joined him on CBS’ ” The Early Show” Monday morning.

    On “The Early Show,” Christina Raines said her engagement to Peterson was not so much a promise to marry but more a publicity “stunt.”

    “Well, (Peterson) had told me that his lawyer had wanted him to be in the media and wanted to propose to someone at a restaurant,” Christina Raines said on Monday’s show.

    Drew’s attorney disagrees

    Peterson’s lawyer, Joel Brodsky, failed to return numerous calls for comment, but Peterson’s Florida-based publicist, Glenn Selig, released a statement refuting Raines’ allegation.

    “It’s very unfortunate that Ernie Raines has dragged his daughter Christina Raines before the cameras and turned her into a Jerry Springer-esque media figure,” reads the statement, which was attributed to Brodsky.

    “Mr. Peterson’s engagement to Christina was not a publicity stunt,” the statement reads. “However, it appears that their recent breakup is a publicity grab orchestrated by Christina’s father, Ernie Raines.”

    Peterson himself was dismissive of his former fiancee’s father, saying, “Ernie is Ernie.”

    Peterson declined to comment further on the disintegration of his engagement, saying only, “I’m going on a national show to tell my side.”

    A questionable strategy

    If Christina Raines was telling the truth, local attorney Frank Cservenyak questioned Brodsky’s legal strategy.

    “I think most attorneys don’t want their clients in the limelight or saying a lot of things,” Cservenyak said. He noted there were exceptions to this rule, but Peterson’s case does not appear to be one of them.

    “I do think his attorney likes being on all the television shows a little bit too much,” Cservenyak added.

    Insider information

    By this afternoon, the state police should not only get a look at the ring Peterson presented to Raines when he allegedly proposed, Ernie Raines said, but they also hope to get a glimpse at domestic life in the Peterson residence after speaking with Christina.

    “They want to talk to her because she was inside Drew’s house,” Ernie Raines said.

    For a fun time take a look at the “Automatically Generated Transcript”. At one part it translates “Drew” as “drool”!

    SMITH: I gotta tell you though Mr. Raines, I’m very confused. I mean they were living together–your daughter and her two children and drew Peterson who keeps losing his wives–they were all living together right?

    RAINES: Yes but what with Drew, he manipulated and he’s very controllable and what he did was she walked on my daughter’s heart and he used her, basically try to make a fool out of her and tried to get her to make money for him for that reality show which he was supposed to be getting three hundred thousand dollars for.

    SMITH: So that’s what this was all about? He was trying to get on reality show and take a big pay off?

    RAINES: He’s just trying to use her for a publicity like my daughter said.

    SMITH: Before I have to go, you say he’s looking for big payday from a reality TV show–some three undred thousand dollars–but is there any possibility that that your daughter might be able to get some money out of this is well?

    RAINES: He he told my daughter to go with him.

    SMITH: Oh, so she was in on it?

    RAINES: Oh, no. She was not in on it. he told her, “You come do this show, we can get three hundred thousand dollars. My daughter wasn’t going to do it anyway. My daughter don’t like the publicity. My daughter don’t like going on no TV shows. I had a heck of a time trying to get her on today. She don’t like this. She’s not Drew.

  68. Peterson declined to comment further on the disintegration of his engagement, saying only, “I’m going on a national show to tell my side.”

    SHOCKER! 🙂

    Former FBI Agent Reveals True Identity Of “Todd Black”

    http://www.wftv.com/news/18623676/detail.html

    “Eyewitness News may have solved the mystery surrounding the phantom PR man working for Casey Anthony’s attorney. He calls himself “Todd Black,” but that’s not his real name.

    A former FBI revealed to Eyewitness News that Todd Black is really Gil Cabot, a man who’s spent time in prison for trying to extort money from a Los Angeles news anchor. The so-called Todd Black has been involved in the Casey Anthony case almost since the beginning.”

    This just made me laugh!

    Uneditied new release in response to the news story:

    http://www.wftv.com/news/18623734/detail.html

    “It simply DOES NOT MATTER if our company was founded by a gentleman who spent time in prison over twenty-five years ago, especially since that distinction is a key selling point that brings credibility to our services assisting celebrities, politicians and others charged with a crime.

    It simply DOES NOT MATTER that when he sold the company in 1996 he remained a consultant, just like it simply DOES NOT MATTER that security names are assigned to our company staff.

    Turning a prison experience into a successful business deserves respect, and in fact -mainstream news broadcasters and publications regularly employ as experts formally convicted individuals; G.Gordon Liddy, John Dean and Mark Fuhrman, to name a few. Working crisis media cases isn’t fluff public relations, and in high profile situations using security names is required by Press Corps Media for employee safety.”

  78. During appearance on Early show she has LE talking in her ear. Any time she is asked something that pertains to the ongoing investigation they say, “Don’t answer.” So she sits there like a dummy. The voice in her ear says “Say you aren’t comfortable answering”, so she switches to that.

    That’s the impression I got too, like somebody was feeding info or giving guidance, hence the unusual pauses.

  79. ThanksWomenscorned! I missed that show as well. Givearat, Bucket, Noway, Cerastes – thanks for all the great info tonight!

    Interesting, she says in that interview (with Bloom) that the Nightline interview had nothing to do with her leavnig Drew.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Yes that interview certainly did not make a lot of sense.

    Very long pauses between her answers and then some super guarded replies, very much like someone getting in her ear so to speak – LOL !

    Unfortunately however Christine still doesn’t get it by saying Drew is a very good father and how well he treated her children.

    Good fathers don’t kill their wives, use and manipulate children like Drew does.

    Oke the engagement may have been a stunt/set up whatever but where does the moving into Drews house fit in ??

  82. I’ll admit I was moved when Chrissy broke down during the Lisa Bloom interview while talking about the pictures of Stacy in the house. I really do think now that she was probably just emotionally overwhelmed and unable to speak at times during the Early Show because she actually does, finally, realize what we’ve all seen for so long. That no loving mother just drops out of the lives of their children.

    Here, Drew is worried about the memorial to his wife that sits on his neighbor’s front lawn. His entire home is haunted by that poor woman, and I’m glad that anyone spending time in it is able to feel the presence of her and know that there is no way that she left that house willingly.

  83. Funny how Christina even moved her children in with Drew (!!) but had no trouble believing Stacy just took off and left without hers.

    Next Christina didn’t want to get involved with Drews “engagement stunt”, but moved in with him instead.

    HUH ?????

  84. Since Christina has two small children, the same ages as Anthony and Lacey, I have a question for her:

    Christina, would you have taken off with Drew for more than a year, leave your small children behind and NEVER contact them or anyone else ??

  85. Good morning!

    What a busy time it’s been. It’s only going to get worse, Bratsky.

    I couldn’t find a Google news link to Bratters’ hilarious vehement denial-and-accusations this morning. The BrodskyOdeh analysis of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict appears instead.

  86. WLS is confirming it is indeed a NEW GF, not Chrissy, who will be on the Mancow show at 9 a.m.

    How much more of this BS before our heads burst wide open????

  87. Woman on the verge of tears, scolding them for treating Drew as a celebrity when Stacy’s kids are left motherless.

    “Shame on you!” she says.

  88. Facs is right – the cop called him a rat and a fink for outting and undercover cop, and, of course, he said it never happened.

    He said his BB partners avoid him, but cops from all over the US support him.

    He’s delusional.

  89. Because Chrissy had a ring and they got furniture together, that proves they were engaged.

    He said they lived together – like a common law marriage.

  90. Joel said there’s a strategy to the media appearances. That they want to balance the view of Drew.

    Drew did say that the ring was not returned, “so I must still be engaged”. He referred to it as the $15,000 ring and laughed.

  91. Are you listening, Bucket?

    I had to split up the h t t p, but here’s the link:

  92. It may be “news” but ya don’t have to joke with or pander to the monster and his fat sidekick. That Amy Jacobson is a bit of a famewhore too, huh.

  93. In Amy’s defense she’s the only one actually asking Drew ‘real’ questions. Unfortunately, the answers are lost in the general levity and goofing off. She’s asked about the children a few times.

  94. Well, Bucket, judging by the calls that are coming in (they’re doing commercials now), his jury pool is sounding and looking pretty hateful.

    Boobsky and Dopehead better be careful what they wish for, pulling this nonsense.

    So delusional.

  95. I’m listening to it with you….! You’re right facs about Amy bringing up the kids. I’m wondering about her sort of shutting down Drew when he said she had a great lawyer, and she replied a bit tersesly that she has lawyers plural.

  96. You can only listen live online until 10am (unless you pay a fee) so there you have why they waited until then to talk to them.

  97. Apparently, Drew flirted with a young woman at the studio and Joel tried to arrange a date.

    So Joel pimps for Drew now?

    BTW, Drew left.

  98. I hate Mancow BTW – ever since he made fun of Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease I removed the station he was on from my quick buttons in my car!

  99. Honestly, I think the calls were getting to be too much for Boobsky and Dopehead, and they used the kids, once again, as an excuse to blow out of there!

    Enough of that!

  100. From my notes after listening:

    M (Mancow) some doubt whether DP would show, he’s here looking in the window at me.

    M- oh look, DP just walked in, is this new love a publicity stunt?

    D (Drew)- Oh no no
    Someone in background yells “he’s got a knife”

    M- Drew, don’t leave, I’m just trying to kick it up a little

    M- talking about Valentine’s day, Drew what is romance to you

    D- Oh DIAMONDS

    M- This girlfriend going to last?

    D- I don’t know, changes from day to day.

    M- Drew, lots of people calling in for you, we had Blago on but you seem to get more listeners.

    D- I normally trump Blago!!!

    M- We offered blago a show, maybe we should offer you one D.
    Asked about Chrissy & if they were really engaged.

    D- she asked me to marry her about 5 – 6 times.

    M- to JB, what area don’t you want us to go into with Drew?

    JB- none, everythings been said, you can ask him anything

    M- what advice did you give Drew early on

    JB- to not talk to the media

    M- Drew, you love being in the media

    D- No, they just show up & I can’t keep my mouth shut!

    Listening to Chrissy tape,

    Drew- we were eng. she moved in, she called me screaming after the niteline show, couldn’t make out what she was saying.
    Her father told her he’d disown her, so she moved out

    M- are you working out now that you are out & about in the bars looking for 20 yr olds.

    D- no, I’m just in shape

    M- what attraction do you have for 20 yr olds?

    D- Older women just not out, afraid of older women, guesses women attracted to him cause he’s famous; loved Chrissy, kids heartbroken over her leaving, putting all the blame on her for hurting the kids & leaving without saying goodbye to them.

    Caller, – does remaining in public eye hurt his legal issues.

    D- no
    M- Drew, do you have a relationship with Amy Jacobsen?

    D- Amy J. can have me, invitation open, M confused her being at Drew’s pool, instead of Stebic’s, Drew corrected him, but said HE HAS A POOL TOO, went on more about Amy can have him

    Amy- no no, was uncomfortable about M going there. Amy J. says she IS single.

    M- Drew, you don’t answer the phone when I call, but you do when Amy calls.

    A- Drew I’m worried about your kids.

    D- kids little upset about Chrissy leaving, especially his little girl, but the way Chrissy left, she hurt them.

    Caller, how do you explain to kids about bringing new women home

    D- we need a woman in the house,

    New Caller- Mancow, why do you give this scum of the earth, sociopath time on your show, make him a celebrity etc.

    M- what about it Drew, how do you feel when you hear callers like this

    D- 50% love me, 50% hate me
    Pretty much blew it off what caller said.

    JB, we hired PR agent to help us deal with media.

    D- thinks he’s still engaged to Chrissy since she didn’t give the ring back, said it’s NOT Stacy’s ring.

    Caller- I’m a police officer & you were fired for giving up the identy of an undercover cop. You’re a RAT, RAT, disgrace & RAT!

    D- no evidence so I was rehired.

    Caller, just drove by Target – site of Lane Bryant shooting, crosses with names on them, all the women were mothers.
    Are you thinking about the children, Mancow, how can you have this man on & make him a celebrity, she went on & on. Shame on you & all the media.

    A- Are the kids in counseling?

    D- no, but they touched base with a psychologist & they are all well adjusted!!!!

    M- asks them about the book, asks isn’t it true D failed the lie detector tests given by the book publisher?

    JB- double talks & says he failed some of the questions but passed some.

    JB & D- hate Geraldo, says if Geraldo says he’s guilty, then you know he’s not!

    No new GF on the show, nothing mentioned about why or who or anything.

  101. TAI – I spent a lot of time once on that mancow site trying to find a way to hear an archived show where Drew had called in, only to find that the audio was available for free somewhere else.

    I don’t like the guy either.

  102. I did hear them mention at one point that originally Chrissy was supposed to be on with him, but since she left Drew, they arranged to have Amy Jacobson on.

  103. This was terrible – it wasn’t a newsworthy, enlightening conversation. It was a circus, they did nothing but banter around and joke about all of this.

    The only ones that were outraged and sickened were the callers. Everyone else in the studio, along with Boobsky and Dopehead, made a joke of it all.

    But, the callers were getting serious and I believe that’s why they blew out. That was NOT good for his jury pool, heh?

  104. Before the show started, the Don & Roma show which preceeds Mancow, said several times that Drew would be there with his NEW GIRLFRIEND, and they said NO CHRISSY.

  105. Drew said the kids are hurting “because of Christina”

    He said his kids are right outside the studio.
    No school today?

  106. Drew goes on and on about how he needs a “woman” in his house for the sake of the kids.

    Has he ever considered just hiring a freakin’ nanny?

  107. luvpups:
    Could you type the part up when the caller talked about finding the real murderer, and you could hear blabsky laughing in the background………..someone said something about that being funny……….then blabsky changed the subject, but,ah,ah,well,uh……

    Did anybody catch that?

    Ummm – DREW YOU ARE THE ONE THAT IS BRINGING THESE PEOPLE INTO THEIR LIVES AND INTO YOUR HOME!! IT ISN’T LIKE THEY ARE BREAKING IN WHEN YOU ARE NOT HOME JUST TO GET CLOSE TO YOUR KIDS!! WISEN UP – IDIOT – YOU ARE THE ONE HARMING YOUR KIDS OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!!

  110. The part about finding the real murderer, was kind of hard to hear.

    They were all talking over each other.

    Mancow & Amy both ( I think) asked him if he was going to be going out looking for her or on anymore searches & then Drew never really answered, Joel was laughing in background, think Drew kind of chuckled too, but not sure.

    The only notes I took on that were that they asked Drew & he really never answered.

  111. Didn’t one of them in the studio comment that Joel thought it was “funny” when they brought up looking for Stacy, as though he was an imbecile?

  112. rescueapet:
    Yes.
    Yes they were laughing at that and about finding the real murderer.
    It was really hard to hear.

    facs:
    Where did you find the archived mancow shows free?

    Also:
    A:Do the kids ever ask about Stacy?
    D: They used to, not anymore
    A: Do they pray to her?
    D: Yes, every night

  113. Bucket, I think Drew ditched on them. He used the kids as an excuse.

    I know they were outside the studio but I really doubt they were outside the building. They were probably out in reception being watched by someone at the station.

    That building next to Borders is one of those old early skyscrapers – about 12 storeys or so with lots of offices in it. I used to work about a block away from there (until I got laid off, but that’s another story…).

  114. Well, here’s a new question I have.

    Boobsky was outraged last year at Lenny & Paula for coming into the kids’ lives and leaving them abruptly. In fact, he blamed the ISP for permitting Lenny & Paula to wiretap Dopehead and allowing this to go on. Said it was psychologically damaging the children and said we should raise up and protest.

    Now, today, they’re blaming the new flavor of the month, Chrissy Raines. Who are we supposed to raise up and protest to now, I want to know?

    Oh, and when asked why Brodsky lets all of this showboating (my word, not theirs) go on, he said so people don’t just hear one side of the story.

    You know, and get the wrong idea that it was Drew’s fault.

    Too late, Boobsky. You lose.

  115. facs:
    Where did you find the archived mancow shows free?
    *************************

    It was a while ago but IIRC it was as Thinkaboutit said. Everything on Mancow’s site was pay-to-download, but if you went to the radio station’s site you could hear the podcasts for free.

  116. Thanks facs.

    They replayed a part where blabsky was asked why they are out in the media so much.

    He replied that they wanted to get “their side” of the story out in case “God forbid, there is a trial.”

    Am I wrong or is “their side” actually worse than any other side?

    He is a complete imbecile.

  117. Also in Amy J’s defense, she rebuked any mention of her & Drew by Mancow.

    She acted like a professional newsperson, asking quetions that we ‘d all like answered.

    She really had NO interest in DP at all!

    Am I wrong or is “their side” actually worse than any other side?

    He is a complete imbecile.
    ——————————————

    The only side any of us want to hear is:

    1.Where is Stacy

    2.Drew’s timeline

  119. womenscorned – It’s our dream come true that Boobsky continues to represent Dopehead, because he’s as much a fame whore as his client, and he’s helping to bury him deeper and deeper.

    They just don’t get it, do they? They’re promoting one another for the, “God forbid,” jury pool that Boobsky claims will never be, yet, their jury pool hates them so much, they can’t stand to see or hear them anymore.

    Now, what does Boobsky think he’s accomplishing? Future book deal, notoriety? Who the heck would ever hire him or that laughing stock of a PR agent, Glenn Sellit?

  120. Drew has to blame other people, Lenny, Paula, Chrissy.

    Of course he’s not to blame, he’s PERFECT!

    He has no clue that HE is the problem!

  121. Now, this is funny. Sellit is working on taking the impeached, scorned ex-governor around on a media blitz again, while Dopehead has to settle for second-best.

    I thought Dopehead said he trumps Blago in the media wars? I don’t think so.

  122. It look as if the station is on the 8th or 9th floors of the building.

    The ABC TV station is on the first floor — the one where you can watch them do the broadcast from the street.

  123. Oh, that’s the building they were in – didn’t realize that.

    Then, the kids would’ve been in the hallway, outside of the studio.

    That was a good idea, though, on Dopehead’s part. Let the media know where you’ll be, bring your kids along, then when the questions get too hot from the callers, blow out of there and blame the media for stepping on your kids.

  124. clarify:
    I meant “actually worse than any other side”
    as in “they could not possibly present themselves to the media in a more disastrous way”

  125. July, 2008:

    (Brodsky) ILLINOIS STATE POLICE ARE GUILTY OF PSYCHOLOGICAL TORTURE OF PETERSON CHILDREN

    No, what is highly disturbing is how the ISP has allowed Drew’s children to be severely
    damaged by the behavior of these informants.

    Do the ends always justify the means, even when the means leave small children with
    permanent psychological scars?

    *****************

    February 2, 2009:

    (Raines) “On Drew’s, so he could be in the media,” Christina said. “He had told me that his lawyer had wanted him to be in the media and wanted to propose to someone at a restaurant.”

    February 3, 2009:

    (Drew)- kids little upset about Chrissy leaving, especially his little girl, but the way Chrissy left, she hurt them.

    Gawd, I need a decoder book to keep it straight who’s damaging the kids this week. Who’s it going to be next week?

  126. Did anyone catch the name of the guy who called in and chided Drew for not hanging out with him anymore. He said he was related to a half sister or something?

    Was it someone pretending to be Tom Morphey or a real person?

    I think he said his name, but I couldn’t hear it amid the all the hijinks and laughter.

    On a side note, does anyone else feel p’d off and kind of sick about listening to this crap? This is so not why I follow this case, but I feel like I have to listen to or watch all the coverage to keep up with it. After listening to a radio appearance like this…it’s not like I feel like I need to take a shower, but more like I’d like to shove a couple of radio personalities into one.

    The man is a murder suspect. There is the death of one woman (probably two) and four motherless children involved.

    Even if he was innocent — especially if he was innocent –what would make man feel like this was the right thing to do? He’ll never be able to make this up to those children.

  127. Yeah, Facs, I know what you mean. But, to balance things out, at least decent people called in and blasted him for all of this. In fact, again, I believe that’s why he blew out of there so quickly during the commercial break. Callers were not being funny, they were very serious and sickened by him. That is not good PR, and that’s not good for him.

    One woman did call in and said he’s innocent until proven guilty, he’s not been charged, and her father is a crime scene investigator who says they don’t have anything to charge him with.

    So, why does he and his attorney continue to go from one media outlet to another, pull stunts like this, and then have to backtrack when they backfire? If he’s so innocent and there’s nothing for his Boobsky to worry about, why the media whore routines?

    Callers like her are living in the same delusional world that the stooges are.

  128. But Brodsky, who was among the first to confirm Peterson’s engagement to Raines in December, suddenly claimed to have little knowledge of his client’s affairs of the heart.

    “I don’t know,” Brodsky said. “I don’t get involved in his personal life.”

    Boobsky sure got involved in his personal life all of a sudden, heh?

  129. Well, well, well, a little birdie has tweeted and says that Dopehead is back in the naughty, naughty chatrooms again, recreating himself. He can run, but he can’t hide ~ seems he being outwitted in the computer department.

    My bigdog avatar is cute, isn’t it?

  130. No kidding Rescue! According to Joel he knows exactly how many proposals there were, who made them to whome, whether or not they were accepted, whether or not a ring was given and accepted…

    “I don’t get involved in his personal life.”

  131. I think Boobsky should change careers and become a low-budget film producer. One of the most basic job skills required for that is the willingness to say or do anything in the moment, just to get your project to the next moment.

    Sounds like him down to the ground.

  132. Hi coffee.

    Mr. Love-is-my-life is in a chat room right now, trying to line himself up with a new hottie.

    Maybe Boobsky should get involved in his personal life ~ there might be someone, er, I mean something, in it for him.

  133. Looks like Glenn has his hands full setting up 4 Blago interviews to just 1 Drew interview:

    -Today Show
    – Larry King Live
    – On the Record with Greta Van Susteren
    – The Late Show with David Letterman

    Looks like Drew has to find out why Blago is getting all of the national interviews while he’s stuck only going only on little local stunts.

  134. Hi Rescue & All!

    I’m surprised there hasn’t been a press release yet extolling the incredible PR talent who taught the US to pronounce Blog-o’s name.

    On second thought, he may have taught people to pronoince it, but I bet he can’t SPELL it!! 🙂

  135. rescueapet // February 3, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    Geeze, guess Sellit is moving up to a better class – from murderer to impeached governor.
    **********
    Sickeningly enough, I think from his perspective that’s a huge WIN!!

  136. Well, well. Not much to add at the moment. I regret to inform you that I was unable to hear the interview. That us just say that I had… shall we say, prior commitments which kept me otherwise occupied.

    From what I have seen so far, not much to it. I’ll add some commentary.

    First of all, don’t be so hard on Amy. She has been nothing but a consumate professional who has gone above and beyond the job to get a story. I honestly doubt she would flirt with Peterson, especially after describing his gf as ‘submissive’. If anything, I expect she would ask REAL questions. Only her and Cassidy can claim to be REAL journalists on that show.

    I do, however, believe Peterson would hit on her, and I suspect it plays a role in his reason for coming on live instead of doing a phone interview. Especially since he didn’t have a girlfriend. Why? Maybe because he was planning on ‘picking up’ Amy and ‘going for a bite to eat’ afterwards.

    Either that or Brodsky really is his girlfriend after all, which sounds about par for the course actually.

    I should also add a couple details. First of all, this is in agreement with what I said yesterday. Amy, not Mancow, was the one who called him up and spoke to him. Makes sense he would try hitting on her…

    Second, he actually showed up to the studio EARLY, before Mancow was even on the air.

    For the record, WLS 890 AM broadcasts out of the 9th floor, though I know Mancow has his own studio so I’m not 100% sure about him…

    Let me just say that I may have some more bombs to reveal about this case later on, so stay posted.

    I’m also going to try and get my hands on a recording of this, if possible, so I can hear it for myself and maybe post it for others…

    I do want to add that Peterson had made bikini comments to a reporter earlier… I believe it was Anita Padilla from WFLD’s morning show (who is also married with kids), but I’m not sure. I also remember him hitting on another female reporter. Pig…

  137. Also, I rather resent the allegations that Jacobson is a ‘fame whore,’ since she has been a respected field reporter for WMAQ for a looong time before her (unjust) firing, and still works part time for WLS filling in and does a weekend show on WIND. If anything she should be working full time. Chicago needs more reporters like her…

    I don’t know why she associates with an idiot like Mancow, to be honest. I know they are friends, and she almost did a TV show with him for Fox in fact, but come on. She should be doing REAL WORK. Then again, I also liked Agar. :-/

  138. His 2 younger children were at the studio with him. On his way out reporters almost took down the darn kids.

    I think Drew & a reporter/media figure would make a great couple. Peas in a pod.

  139. > I think Drew & a reporter/media figure would
    > make a great couple. Peas in a pod.

    Except, of course, that most reporters… he** most professional women in general think he is an idiot.

    Has he even dated anyone older than 21?

  140. All right, I’m going to have to make some phone calls tonight. More details to come. Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll have some more dirt to spill. The real question is, where to draw the ‘ethical’ line, no?

  141. See what you mean, teneleven, but I was thinking the same, cerastes…

    I cannot imagine how JEALOUS drewpie would be if someone he Owned, er, I mean someone with whom he was in a loving and committed relationship, began to write about ANYONE other than DP!

    (i’m imagining images of mt. st. helen’s – but w. really baggy eyes)

    **********

    LOL, it’s ALWAYS someone else’s fault other than the slob that creates the monster.

  143. Drew’s middle kids are pushing towards the same age range that Drew seems to like in his women. I wonder how the older boys got through that stage and if Drew tried to impress any of their girlfriends.

  144. Thanks to all of you for the posts above.

    Would the “best friend of Drew’s half brother” be Walter? Is that his name? The man Tom Morphey went to and told about the blue barrel?

    Common law marriage in three weeks? IL moves fast, don’t they?

    That interview with Chrissy … definitely someone talking in her ear IMO.

    If the children are psychologically damaged because Chrissy … someone they have known for 6 months (if one story Drew tells can be believed) … how can they have touched base with a psychiatrist and be well adjusted when their mother of many years is gone without a word?

  145. TAI – yeah, what responsible parent would allow their teen daughter to go near that house, whether they’re fond of the Peterson teens or not?

    You can’t let him around a teen girl, that’s for sure. He’s dangerous, and he even admitted as much.

    Not to mention, would you want your daughter or son to be friends and involved with that dysfunctional family called Peterson?

    Once that IDIOT of a father was put in prison, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.

    But I would hope the kids would do more than “touch base” with a psychiatrist . . .

  147. Drew is already bragging to people about that female producer at the radio station “wanting to date” him.

    He’s hopeless.

  148. Yeah, Drew is delusional. He’s setting himself up with a new hottie on yahoo chat.

    Maybe Boobsky should monitor Dopehead’s yahoo chats for now on so he can get first-hand knowledge of his personal life. You know, the one he stays out of?

  149. I heard an “expert of some kind” talking about the woman who had 8 babies via IVF.

    Paraphrasing but it works for Drew too:

    She (he) has a unique way of looking at things that isn’t rooted in any way with reality.

  150. LOL, coffee. Lock-up is right!

    Told you he’s delusional. He sends out his Today Show pics to his yahoo hotties.

  151. M- are you working out now that you are out & about in the bars looking for 20 yr olds.

    D- no, I’m just in shape

    Um, Drew … the shape of Humpty Dumpty is not considered being in shape.

  152. Drew is telling people that Chrissy was more about going to the clubs than staying home and cuddling with him. He still doesnt understand what he did wrong…

  153. Now, noway…
    He didn’t say in “good” shape and he didn’t even say in “won’t make you puke right away” shape. Just “in shape.”

    And, you gotta admit, Weeble-like IS a shape! 🙂

  154. Poor Drew! He just wants to be cuddled.

    (by a very young woman w. self-esteem issues who can watch his kids, clean his house, feed his ego, etc.)

  155. Remember Vickie Connolly said Drew is a “Legend In His Own Mind”

    The man knows absolutely no boundaries.

    He’s already in his own “Reality t.v. Show”

    The more exposure he gets, the more outrageous (nauseating, disgusting, daring, fill in any word that describes him) he will get.

    He will continue to make anyone in his life an accomplice and victimize them next.

    That is the nature of the beast.

  156. I really must apologise to Amy Jacobs. I’m an idiot and I know nothing. I was already snarling before she came on, and so irritated by the jolly atmosphere, that when she semi-joked along I saw red. I don’t blame her at all and feel ashamed. She did what she had to do…..and that’s why I don’t/can’t do what she does. I’d just scream at them ineffectually.Go Amy, please forgive?

  157. Anyone notice Drew keeps saying Chrissie asked him to marry her about six or seven times – LOL !

    That cracks me up every time he pulls that line.

    He sure is a legend in his own mind !

  158. Maybe she was saying “How will you marry me if you’re still married to Stacy” and as a man all he heard was “will you marry me”..

  159. No offense to any men that may be on this forum – but it is TRUE that men only really hear about half of what we say!! That’s why we have to say so much and repeat ourselves so many times!! (Same thing goes with kids and teens.)

  160. womenscornedposton4m // February 3, 2009 at 11:51 am

    :mrgreen:

    Good point!

  163. I hear Drew wants to move South and open another “nightclub”. Wonder if he’ll call it The Blue Barrel. I wouldn’t put it past him.

  164. This is just great.

    The PR firm that’s representing Casey Anthony/Jose Baez is headed by a convicted felon, whose name, Todd Black, is an “alias.” The same man who made inaccurate accusations against the prosecutors in the case.

    You just can’t make this stuff up.

  165. I’m beginning to think the shenanigans of the last few weeks, orchestrated by Drew and Joel, are to keep our attention away from more serious issues such as the Court hearing re Kathleens Estate.

    If they make enough white noise or any noise for that matter it will keep our attention focussed in another direction !

  166. Yeah, JAH, it might be they have some idea the end is about near.

    He’s been twisting in the wind long enough, and he’s about shredded and tattered these days, so they can come and get him any time.

  167. Despite all the weird explanations on either side re the stunt or no stunt engagement, I still haven’t heard anyone explain why Christina moved in with Drew.

    One would think that would be a much more important issue than if the engagement or ring was real or not.

    Whether Drew was such a “wonderful” and “caring” guy to Christina and such a “good father” to all the children in that household, she still knowingly moved her and her very young children in with a guy officially under investigation for MURDER !!!

    Does that equate any form of responsible parental thinking, “thinking with your heart” or is that just not thinking at all ??

  168. Drew did say this morning that since he and Chrissy were friends he had her move in to help take care of the kids.

    But when the storyabout the mvoe-in broke, they were saying it was because of a fight with Mike and that she couldn’t really get a restraining order against him since they were both on the lease of the apartment they shared. So Drew moved her in so that he could protect her. That’s what I recall.

  169. Where is the media getting this EDWARD thing?

    Peterson insists he is engaged
    Tuesday, February 03, 2009 | 4:17 PM

    February 3, 2009 (WLS) — Drew Peterson is refuting his former fiancée’s claim that their engagement was staged.

    In an interview Monday on the CBS Early Show, 24-year-old Christina Raines denied she and Peterson were ever engaged and said it was all just a publicity stunt.

    But on Tuesday Drew Peterson was on WLS-AM’s Mancow and Cassidy Show. He said he and Raines were engaged and that she had become a part of his family.

    Meanwhile, Raines’ father, Edward, told ABC7 on Tuesday that his daughter was confused during her interview on CBS and that she and Peterson were engaged.

    Peterson is considered a suspect in the 2007 disappearance of his 23-year-old wife Stacy. Police are treating the case as a homicide.
    Peterson has denied wrong-doing and insists that his wife left him for another man.

  170. Meanwhile, Raines’ father, Edward, told ABC7 on Tuesday that his daughter was confused during her interview on CBS and that she and Peterson were engaged.

    Exactly how does one get confused about this and wouldn’t she know better than dad?

  171. Yeah facs, but that is all Drews BS kind of explanations, which are truly meaningless in the scheme of things as Drew says whatever suits him at the time…

    Why did Christina say she moved in, especially after her moving in was AFTER the engagement shenanigans, not even before (!)

    I’d like to know what was her “defining moment” for her to see it as a good idea to move herself and her two young children in with a notorious murder suspect.

    Meanwhile, Raines’ father, Edward, told ABC7 on Tuesday that his daughter was confused during her interview on CBS and that she and Peterson were engaged.

    Exactly how does one get confused about this and wouldn’t she know better than dad?

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    LOL, yeah, you would know if you got engaged or not and you’d probably know who you got engaged to as well.

    LOL !

  173. Well, LOL, I have another source for you but I woudn’t vouch for this rat either!

    Via Derek Armstrong’s press release:

    “Christina Raines gave a comment through Peterson, “I don’t want to speak with the media.” But she confirmed the move was precipitated by a confrontation with her ex-boyfriend and that she’s “happy moving in.””

    Peterson vs. Blago in game of PR blunders
    Drew’s engagement wins this round, but Letterman looms

    February 3, 2009

    BY RICHARD ROEPER Sun-Times Columnist
    Right around the time we were hearing Rod Blagojevich will banter with David Letterman tonight, the former-sorta fiance of Drew Peterson was appearing on “The Early Show” on CBS.

    And pretty soon pitchers and catchers report! What a season we’re having.

    First we saw video of the soon-to-be-forgotten Christina Raines and her father Ernest outside Peterson’s home, with dad yelling at Peterson via intercom before summoning police and telling the cameras, “He’s fooling with the wrong guy.”

    Then we saw Christina and Ernie on “The Early Show,” where Christina told Julie Chen her engagement to Peterson “was never an engagement, really. . . . It was more like a stunt.”

    Chen: “A stunt. On whose part?”

    Christina: “On Drew’s, so he could be in the media . . . I was never engaged to him … he had told me he had never said . . . he was engaged to me . . .”

    Chen seemed utterly confused. That makes two of us. Or maybe all of us.

    So Raines moved in with Peterson, but the engagement was really a stunt, and he never told her he was engaged to Raines, but he told someone he WAS engaged to Raines, but maybe he was engaged to someone else or to no one at all.

    Or something like that.

    The interview concluded with Ernie quoting Kris Kristofferson’s “To Beat the Devil” and sending shout-outs to Dr. Phil, among others, as Chen tried to wrap things up and poor Christina sat there looking like she was wishing herself to a faraway land.

    If that’s Peterson’s idea of a stunt, congratulations. You made a fool of a young woman and her father, and you made yourself the butt of even more derision from the media and the public. As stunts go, that’s the equivalent of getting hit in the face with the pie and then “tricking” someone into hitting you with two more pies…

    (the column goes on from there about Blago. It’s worth reading the whole thing!)

  175. Oh, by no means is Christina the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    She went along with this for her own selfish reasons, so she’s no innocent bystander.

    The only good thing is that her father was able to get her away from that maniac, along with her two kids.

    When asked by Mancow if he was still engaged, he said “I don’t know, it changes from day to day.”

    Oh, no, he’s not going to use that line again, like he did with Stacy, is he? That’s getting real old, just like his fat head.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    LOL, thank you facs !

    Yes and now she is “happy moving in” with the ex boyfriend again !

    So does that mean the ex-boyfriend is now the boyfriend again ?

    Oh. my head is spinning ……..

  177. I want to know why LE was so quick to set Kim Matuska straight and haul her before the GJ, but they’re complacent with Christina.

    Could it be that Kim got in the picture when Lenny & Paula were still doing the overhears and didn’t want her around.

    Maybe his house has secrets, but ones that LE can hear?????

  178. Via Derek Armstrong’s press release:

    “Christina Raines gave a comment through Peterson, “I don’t want to speak with the media.” But she confirmed the move was precipitated by a confrontation with her ex-boyfriend and that she’s “happy moving in.””

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    However feeble reason that was, it was also a statement issued by Christina “via Drew Peterson”, so it is once again feeding the Drew Peterson Legend In His Own Mind” phenomena and may not be anything close to what really happened.

  179. You guys are right… she confirmed she’s “happy moving in.”

    So, Drew says, “Tell him you’re happy moving in.”

    Chrissy says, “I don’t want to speak with the media.”

    Armstrong says, “So, you had a fight and broke up w. your boyfriend? You happy about moving into Drew’s home?”

    The 20-something deer looks into the headlights and nods.
    (I am soooo grateful this young woman and her children got out!)

  180. I hate to say this but if Christina is so easily persuaded to move back and forth and is “confused” about any “engagement” to Drew Peterson, this may not be the end of her association with him, considering Drews predatory skills are finely tuned and he knows how to get under anyones guard, especially if it someone as undecided/gullible as Christina.

  181. JAH – well, she’s got two kids and does what she can to keep them with her, no matter what stupid avenue she decides to take.

    How can she reason in her head that if Dopehead was such a great catch and wined and dined Stacy, she took off with another and left her two babies? She’s going to have to figure out that little mystery before she can get to the next step – marrying the slob and being cut off from her family and friends for the rest of her life, which won’t be a long life being with him.

  182. I seem to remember Joel saying the line “A ring was given”, not Drew.

    Drew: I Went to Jared

    There’s no denying it — Drew Peterson loves the limelight.

    Even though the former Bolingbrook police officer is suspected in his wife Stacy Peterson’s disappearance — and the two are still legally married — he’s adamant that he and girlfriend Christina Raines were, in fact, engaged.

    On Monday, Raines told CBS’ “Early Show” that there was no engagement — it was all a stunt so Drew could get back in the news cycle. But Peterson went on the “Mancow and Cassidy” show on WLS-AM (890) Tuesday, apparently to bicker with Raines in public.

    Peterson told Mancow the engagement was real, no matter what she says.

    “A ring was given, that’s no stunt,” he said.

    But Peterson did say he understood Raines’ father’s concern about the relationship, whatever it was. Peterson said he would “definitely not” want a child of his to be involved with a man who was tied up in a scandal like this.

    Drew, player that he is, also gave some tips for how he woos women half his age. (Peterson is 55 and Raines is 24).

    “You can never go wrong with diamonds,” he said.

  183. Drew’s well oiled predatory machine is already working on her by saying in the Media his kids miss her and are upset she didn’t say goodbye to them.

    (these kids seem to have lots of mommies that never say goodbye to them !)

    Next Drew will get in her ear Ernie and her “ex” boyfriend are the ones getting in the way of their happiness by wanting to break them up all the time etc etc.

    I hope Ernie has a direct line to Dr. Phil, to keep a step ahead of Drew and his predatory slime !

  184. You can never go wrong with diamonds,” he said.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    LOL , he’s never at a loss for words !

  185. I had to laugh at this bit:

    “Drew Peterson says he was engaged to a 24 year old woman, no matter what she says”

    LOL, LOL

    ******
    You remember all the dueling releases and comments at the beginning of this ‘romance?’ “We are!”, “We’re not!”, “Oh yes, WE ARE!!” “Look! She’s moving in!”

    Hardly a Hallmark occasion… If only he hadn’t killed two of his previous wives it might all be funny.

  187. If you look at the facts:

    stunt or no stunt, Christina did somehow end up with a ring on her finger and did move in with Drew.

  188. facsmiley // February 3, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    There’s a contact page on that site. I’d recommend making your inquiries there.
    —————————————————-
    Thanks Facs! I’m wondering how you can trademark and copyright pics of Stacy, her family and Caylee Anthony. Do you have any idea? I didn’t see the contact page but I’m sure the family isn’t that thrilled with the likeness of their loved one being trademarked and copyright. Doesn’t seem to legal to the lay person 😉

  189. Meanwhile, Raines’ father, Edward, told ABC7 on Tuesday that his daughter was confused during her interview on CBS and that she and Peterson were engaged.

    __________________

    Isn’t her father’s name Ernest (Ernie)?

    Who is the confused one?

    Besides me. 🙄

  190. It was. It wasn’t. It was. It wasn’t. At least dad’s name is correct this time.

    Source: Peterson engagement no ‘stunt’
    Ex-fiancee’s dad says she was confused

    February 3, 2009

    By JOE HOSEY jhosey@scn1.com
    BOLINGBROOK — The father of the young woman who recently lived with Drew Peterson — but claimed they were never engaged — contradicted his daughter and said she was in fact betrothed to the serial marrier.

    “When she moved in, he did ask her to marry him,” said Ernie Raines, the father of 24-year-old Christina Raines, of his daughter’s relationship with Peterson.

    On Monday morning, Ernie and Christina Raines appeared on “The Early Show” to detail her very public breakup with Peterson. During the interview, Christina Raines said her engagement to Peterson was nothing more than a publicity “stunt,” and pointed to Peterson’s attorney as the man responsible for it.

    “Well, (Peterson) had told me that his lawyer had wanted him to be in the media and wanted to propose to someone at a restaurant,” said Christina Raines.

    “It was more like a stunt,” she said Monday.

    “It was not a stunt,” Ernie Raines said Tuesday. “It was the truth. Why (else) would I be so mad? And my daughter ain’t going to lie.”

    Ernie Raines blamed the mix-up on his daughter’s confusion upon being thrust into the TV spotlight.

    “My daughter was not ready for this,” he said. “She was under pressure, and they kept pushing and pushing and pushing.”

    Raines said his daughter was referring to another Peterson ploy when she was speaking about the “stunt.”

    A nonplussed Peterson pointed out that he has maintained all along that he and Raines were engaged.

    “(It’s) like we said,” Peterson said.

    He also says he received text messages from Raines reading, “I love you,” that he says prove the deep feelings they shared.

  191. He also says he received text messages from Raines reading, “I love you,” that he says prove the deep feelings they shared.
    __________
    LMAO

    It was probably Mike and Chrissy sending those and laughing at Drew the whole time.

  192. Well, I blame whoever was talking in her ear.

    Clearly, they must have been muttering and there was no way she could understand what she was supposed to say.

    When she finally understood “It was a stunt” … the question had changed.

  193. Oh well, hmmm, maybe Christina did send Drew some “I Love You” messages as one was printed that she supposedly send to her Dad, stating she loved Drew, unless Drew/Brodsky are back into the “ridding like a bucking bronko” routine.

    You just never know what the truth is when you’re dealing with Sociopaths and Pathological liars, as on the odd occasion, they sometimes manage to tell the truth and that’s exactly when you end up with egg on your face – LOL !

  194. justanotherhen // February 3, 2009 at 10:51 pm

    Oh well, hmmm, maybe Christina did send Drew some “I Love You” messages …

    I imagine it’s way better than saying it to his face.

    Yikes! 😀

  195. I’m always interested in finding out the truth, but I’m not sure that one even exists in this case. If you say ‘let’s get married’ to someone during the midst of an ‘engagement stunt’ does it legitimize the engagement and negate the stunt, or does the stunt stand alone?

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    LOL,LOL, it must have started out as the truth somewhere along the line, but they can’t agree when it actually became a stunt or if it the truth was still “out there” for either one of them, but not necessarily at the same time (!)

  197. When you move in with someone when you’re not really engaged to that person, but you have been given a ring to say you’re engaged, does that mean you still moved in as a fiance or just moved in for the heck of it (?)

  198. Poor Drew – in spite of his stuntish efforts to be in the news his story only lasted about 1 – 1.5 days while Blago is still front page priority for his antics!

  199. Yeah, LOL, there’s someone else to take over the reins to look like a complete idiot. Ah, you can’t make this stuff up.

    Although, guess the ex-Gov gets some credit for not being a double murderer.

  200. I wonder….Does anyone here care about this Scott person’s personal information ?

    The only reason I would care is IF he knew
    where SP is, and then I would only turn it over to the ISP. I certainly would not come on a public blog to show how illiterate I am..computer whiz or not ! GROW UP !

    “Searches For Stacy Ann Peterson

    Search efforts will be beginning again, in the spring of 2009. The family and friends of Stacy Peterson need your help searching. Please come back soon, for search information.”
    ———————
    Missed this last time I was here.
    Hope and pray Stacy can be found!
    ——————————————————–
    I hope and pray that Stacy is brought home to her family very soon and justice can finally be served.

    I have a question? Is this site named after the boat that is in a dispute as to who owns it? Who is running this site and the searches? Before we all pour our hearts, souls, money and efforts into this new site and it’s searches, please let us know whom is running it.

    TIA

    _________________________________

    FYI, before you go starting a bunch of nonsense. Let me set the record straight. This site has nothing to do with the boat and the problems that may have come about. This is a memorial site for Stacy and is being created with honor, love and respect, for her family and friends.

    As far as running the site, no one owes you an explanation who is running it, unless your family and you ask. More than that, show proof of who you are and why you need an explanation. Just then you may get an answer.

    MONEY? Well that statement alone makes me laugh. do you see anyone asking for money on that site? Nor will you ever see anyone asking for a dime.

    duckyone // February 3, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    It would have been nice if the StacyAnn site to have Stacy’s children as the stars following Cass’s and Grandpa’s!!!!! Or maybe the other family members or loved ones? Wow! People that have never met Stacy are first?? The ultimate disgrace! Wait, I bet the Anthony family won’t think it’s so great to try to trademark a photo of their loved one in that likeness.
    ______________________________

    Stacy’s children are first priority for this site. There is a reason why they photo’s are not currently up. Should you want to think negative, so be it. Seems as though you are that by nature anyways.

    DO YOU SEE A TRADEMARK on that photo? There may be, however, I think your looking to start something that was and is being put together in honor and kindness.

    You just seem to run with nasty and negative thoughts. Since you say that someone should contact from the site, the contact info is there……Please do, again, you may or may not get any answers for your negative couriosity.

    Until then my friend, move on…….All others are welcomed, you might find that your blocked from the site. Have a good day!

  202. I totally believe that this was a complete stunt. I mean let’s take Drew. He lusts to be front page news. What better way to get him there and not be arrested. Of course he knew how sensationalized an engagement would be throughout the “Stacy community”. Nuff said.

    Now let’s take Chrissy. She is naive and can be easily manipulated.

    Here are the scenarios:

    It is possible that Boobsky made the announcement prior to Chrissy’s knowledge of anything.

    I think Drew tried to play both sides of the fence here. I believe that after Joel made the annoucement, Drew told her that this was cooked up by his lawyer and himself to get back in the media. ***STUNT*** Tries to make it look good by showering her with gifts and doting on her which hasn’t happened to her before.

    I also believe that it’s very possible during the doting that maybe she “thought” they were in love. Right up until that god-awful interview last week where he so eloquently said when things get boring, he cheats and that’s okay.

    I believe what she said in the interview, that he told her this would get them back in the media

    STUNTSTUNTSTUNTSTUNTSTUNTSTUNT

  203. Mom2babies – right you are! Don’t forget the part where he also admitted that he’d be concerned if he were this young woman’s family.

    If she got smart, she started going over in her head whatever in the hell did he mean by that remark? Um, like, am I next if he gets bored????

  204. rescueapet // February 2, 2009 at 10:48 am

    Like, why he was driving by the Canal looking for Stacy and the car, when he said earlier that she called him and said she left the car at the airport and she took off with another man?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    EXCELLENT thinking!

  205. “mom2babies // February 4, 2009 at 10:50 am
    I believe what she said in the interview, that he told her this would get them back in the media ”

    I completely believe that as well. It’s so typical of the kinds of things Drew and Joel have cooked up before. It always looks to me as if Drew feels like there is a game going on with reporters and the media and it’s a perfect playground for him to indulge his love of cons and practical jokes. He really doesn’t see how damaging this is to his case, or potential mates, or his kids!

  206. giveitarest – Yeah, he was dumping evidence. Law enforcement knew it and searched that Canal shortly after Stacy went missing. Maybe not necessarily thinking they’d find her, but something of value or importance in their investigation.

    I believe he’s turned the screws on himself quite well, and they’ll have to go to Japan to find a jury that can’t stand the sight of him!

  207. Interesting video where Tamara Holder tells about some of the controlling things that Chrissy told her about:

    Does anyone know if Tamara actually interviewed Chrissy on video anywhere? This report sounds like she spoke with her directly – but I never know what exactly to believe is real versus rumor sometimes on news reports.

  208. I’m curious to know why Armstrong hasn’t been showing up on any of the coverage of the break-up?

    Apparently, he sent out a press release about it, but he didn’t use Glenn’s Publicity Agency to distribute it. I’ve seen his quotes in stories, but no TV appearances and no phone interviews? He also has not updated any of his numerous blogs or sites with ‘Drew news’ since the story about Stacy’s clothes being moved out. What’s up with the star correspondent?

  209. TAI, I’ve never seen video of their conversations, but I know she talked to her.

    If this is true about the cell phone, bank account and wanting her to quit her job, that’s really interesting!

    Thanks for the link!

  210. Facs, maybe Armstrong didn’t like being used for the stunt that wasn’t a stunt?

    Didn’t he say that the woman Drew was engaged to had told him (Armstrong) about the engagement in the first place?

    If so … then wasn’t she part of the stunt? Or did she not realize it was a stunt then but later did?

    If the engagement wasn’t a stunt, then what actions of Drew was she referring to?

  211. BTW, I was going to say hello to all and forgot to, steam was clouding my thoughts. Been awhile since I have posted, have been real busy. Sorry for the interruption, however, some things just need to be addressed. Have a good day and hope to stop back later and chat.

  212. Apropos to nothing but wanted to put it out there that the location abbreviation WCCA in Carcerano’s court information stands for “Will County Court Annex”.

    Someone the other day surmised that it stood for “Will County Correctional Authority” and thought that this indicated that he was in jail, which isn’t the case.

  213. Well, we all know how Drew feels about controlling one’s family,

    “I controlled my family. I think more people in America should control their family.”

  214. I apologize for my previous outburst. No excuse,
    just bad judgement on my part. Sure wish I could blame my pain 😉 but alas my medication is working and I am healing.

    I wonder…..Who will be at the GJ this week ??

  215. Yipes!! That “family control” stuff is REALLY creepy!!

    And we can see how good he is at it; he’s “controlled” them right out of existence.

  216. Wonder –
    From where I sit, no apology needed. Publishing someone’s personal info is not acceptable behavior.

    So glad to hear your’e healing away and not in pain! 🙂

  217. Thanks Coffee..I am doing much better pain wise. I still face one more surgery in a few months ?? So I will be laid up awhile 😦
    But I will not let it get me down, after all I have
    a Wonderful ( ie stuperhero ) rep to protect.

    Okay it is time for a nap. Happy blogging. BBL
