What I want to know is: WHAT TOOK THEM 4 DAYS TO COME BACK WITH A VERDICT?
Can I just say how thrilled I am that this circus is over? I'm so tired of seeing her superior smirk whenever I turn on the TV. Admit it: There's NO ESCAPE! Oy, all that phoney boo-hooing? Even when they read the verdict today, and her poor sweet face crumbled like a graham cracker under your shoe, there wasn't--as usual--a single tear to be seen.
Yes, I'm an avid true crime fan. I'd say it's my morbid little secret, but seriously, it's no secret. I'm addicted to the shows. I follow most of the major trials. I pray I'm reincarnated as Ann Rule one day. But I found this unbearable, primarily for 3 reasons:
1) Did we really need to hear all that sex stuff? Really? REALLY? I mean, after 2 or 3 weeks, we got the gist, okay?
2) It monopolized the late night news shows when there were so many other things going on. Things that did not involve Jodi Arias.
(Jodi: "What? I'm not important?!?")
3). They put her on the stand.
Seriously. Her "brilliant" lawyer PUT HER ON THE FREAKIN' STAND. And kept her on the stand for what felt like two years and let her simper and yammer, and fake-boo-hoo, and do that irritating smirk thing, and flounce and aaaargue and, oh, did I mention LIE her sociopathic, borderline, entitled little tush off? Now watch her claim inadequate/incompetent counsel and demand a new trial.
Guess what? She'll probably get it. And not take the stand.
Bye-bye for now, Jodi. By the way, Toots, if you think jail is bad--
3/28/13 HLN News/Jane Velez Mitchell: "Reports claim that Jodi Arias and other inmates only eat 2 meals a day and sometimes those meals are more than 12 hours apart. A friend of the Arias family says that Jodi Arias is woken up in the middle of the night. Wednesday Jodi Arias brought the trial to a halt complaining of migraines."
--wait till you get to you-know-where.
