For years criminals profited from their crimes by selling interviews, writing books etc. Now that that’s against the law, we’re DELIGHTED to see Jaycee Dugard profiting from being a VICTIM! Jaycee, of course, is the California woman who was kidnapped at age 11 and held captive for 18 years by a sexual predator who fathered her two children. Instead of hiding away for the remainder of her life, Jaycee, now 31, has written a book about her horrifying experience, which will become available July 12. She hired a high-powered Hollywood publicist, Nancy Seltzer, to broker her deals for interviews and appearances publicizing the book. Jaycee’s first prime time interview is likely to have huge ratings so the networks are fighting over her and big money is involved. Can a movie be far behind? It’s gratifying to see this gruesome experience turned into a windfall for Jaycee and her kids.

    When I think about what this incredible young lady had to endure with that those two monsters, I just want to beat the holy shit out those Garridos. What a friggin nightmare to endure for 18 years. God bless her and her family.

    Child rapists don’t have a picnic in jail. I’d say he has his own nightmare now.

    True and there is an obvious mental case posting on this board as well.

    I would like to see her be able to have a normal life and somehow be compensated for the ordeal without going the fame whore route.

    You have the mother of Natalee Holloway turn herself into an after dinner speaker and cashing in…..doesnt seem right.

    One of the hairdressers at the salon I go to lives right next to the house where the Garridos did. Hope they never get out of jail.

    The California Legislature settled $20 million on Jaycee and her daughters due to her kidnapper barely being supervised for several years after the state began monitoring him.

    In a rare twist of fate, I find myself agreeing with Strom that it’s unfortunate the ordeal Jaycee endured is now deliberately being commercialized for profit on top of that.

    Strom, when you say “true”, are you replying to Walt or to frank (who for whatever reason has you on his radar screen).

    Hey Denise,
    Frank seems more than a little obsessed with Strom. lol

    Certainly not to the nut case Frank….not gay, no way. He or she is mad because some of the black apologists were called out.

    I was replying to the thread title, which is what the site is about.

    Americans will spend their money on the most dreadful of things. Is it any wonder her “high-powered Hollywood publicist” may be one of the ‘chosen’ people?

    This young woman deserves every penny she earns from telling her story. Think how many scumbags in Hollywood make ten times as much and have no backbone whatsoever. Her story will at least educate a few people…hopefully govt. employees entrusted with monitoring sex offenders.

    Miss Dugard deserves every happiness in the world for what she endured at the hands of these MONSTER’S!!

    If people are going to pay her for her honesty, then all the power and $$$ to her. She will need the money to make up and pay for all her lost years.

    When life deals ya lemons, make lemonade I guess. But good for her, the force is strong in that one.
    But yah Walt, wouldn’t it be nice to find yourself in a position to be able to take out the trash! Away from the prying eyes of liberal do gooders.
    One can only fantasize. Dexter’s just make believe for wishful thinkers.
    Monsters do exist. Watch your valuables closely.

    I agree w/ Muffin Top — let Jaycee make as much money as she can possibly make… after all, it will take a literal lifetime of continuing therapy for her, and her two daughters, to live a normal, day-to-day existence. Also, the therapy they were doing involved horseback riding (also used for autism, and very successful), and that’s an expensive therapy. 🙂

    Poor Jaycee and kids! The state of California mucked up bigtime. Only way she got rescued was when those lady cops at the Universary of Berkeley put 2 & 2 together. I’m SURE he was also molesting the two young ones.

    He may end up like Jeffery Dalmer. I’d like to put my hands around his damn throat for a long time dogs like that need to be put out their misery.

    I totally agree with you Strom.. she does need money after her ordeal but the book should be the end of it.. by going this route she is allowing this situation to define the rest of her life and IT DOESNT seem right ..she has a responsibility to protect these children because it is the children who will have to deal with the humiliation and carry the burden of the horrible fact that their father did this, for their sake she should move on with her life

    “But yah Walt, wouldn’t it be nice to find yourself in a position to be able to take out the trash!”

    Yes, I certainly would. Just me, the beady eyed molestor and a big splintery wooden club.

    Hey, Walt & Patrick, I get first dibs on this freak, okay? I want to “play” with him awhile, him and strom that is. The two of the little buggers (oh, and that “wife” and enabler can come along too, I’m sure she’d be just as much fun to “play” with. Throw in that colossal moron Gerard Vandenburg/Captain American/wim/The American (who isn’t even IN “America” by the way.
    I could easily take on the four of them at once and play with them in turn and down the line, letting them watch each other get it and wonder what I was going to bring to them when their turn comes. Oh, the suspence is so tasty, isn’t it strom? Is your tiny pee-pee trying to respond as your feeble mind envisions the others getting theirs…?

    But I think I’ll start by tying all four of you together face to face standing up…faces tightly touching…you cannot move your heads away…I’ll be back…

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
