Yes, I did dress that way. I was actually taken back by the response of many people regarding my wardrobe. I just dressed that way because it was fun and I liked it.

On a couple of occasions I have caught the headline that I am a trash talking crusader. If you are referring to my potty mouth then I am the trash talker.

Yes, I was a three time divorcee with three children.So what ?.People don’t realize that I started my work in the Hinkley case in 1991 when Elizabeth was only one year old. Katie was then six years old and Matthew was seven years old.
The Hinkley case settled in 1996 and I was approached about the movie and giving up my rights in 1995.
