Drew Peterson’s alleged fiance, Christina Raines, who had moved in with him, has woken up and is fighting back. Where else but the media? She was on The Early Show yesterday alleging that the “engagement” was a media stunt. Well, the public knew. He alleged he was being stalked, then he said another message was left on Brodsky’s tape about a Stacy sighting, a TV interview in his house for Stacy’s birthday – which he did not celebrate and then his appearance on Nightline. It’s too bad she had to be embarrassed on Nightline to see it and she moved out. I see I haven’t posted his Nightline appearance and other things. Will try to find them.
Here’s the statement from scumbag peterson’s lawyer, Joel Brodsky, who happens to be representing Jesse Jackson, Jr. (Unless he’s changed lawyers.) And the statement is from the same agency that is representing Blagojevich, who is out on his blago media blitz part 2.
BRODSKY: 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.
And peterson? He’s Jerry Springer and Jerry’s audience all in one.
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 daughter 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.
More power to Mr Raines – but what took him so long? And has he looked inward to see why his daughter is hanging out and moved in with a man his age? And who is looking out for those children with all these media appearances?
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; she moved into Drew’s house with her children; and they bought furniture together. This was an engagement.
They bought a bunk bed for the kids. And on his radio appearance peterson laughed how he hasn’t given her a ring “not as of yet” and “we’ll see how it goes” and “we’ll cross this bridge when the time comes”. And when he was asked if he asked “Chrissy” to get married – he laughed and said that “she asked him and then he asked her”. And that they “basically agreed that down the road we will get together and get married.” And when will that be? “We’ll have to see how life holds out. No definite plans or any dates set or anything.” Listen to his tone – he laughs and ridicules her like he did on Nightline. He is a scumbag of the lowest order and needs to be locked up with the sociopaths he used to arrest. I bet the Bolingbrook PD is ready to take him out to the firing range…
