Wilbanks’ fiance John Mason held her hand during the interview with Katie Couric. He said he doesn’t care about criticism from some people who consider him an ‘idiot’ for staying with Wilbanks, although he was bothered by reports she took off to see another man — which Wilbanks says weren’t true.
Mason says he believes he’s meant to be with Wilbanks and, as he puts it, he’s “helping her get through this.”
Helping her get through this? What about what you went through? What about what her family went through? Or the volunteers who helped search for her?
You heard it here first: I predict that Jennifer Wilbanks will dump John Mason, sooner or later. It might even take a few years. But I would bet money that these two will not stay together forever.
Here’s a news flash for you, John: Women don’t respect wimps who agree with and support everything that they do and say. I watched the Katie Couric interview with you and your selfish fiance, and not once did I see you show any anger at all for what Jennifer put you, her family, and hundreds of other people through. Instead, the image that went through my mind as I watched you was that of a puppy dog, following its master around, no matter how badly it is treated.
Jennifer would have a lot more respect for you if you told her truth, which is:
She’s a fucking selfish, self-centered bitch. Because she was feeling pressure, she put everyone she knows through a horrible ordeal. Worse, she is now cashing in on it.
I’d have more respect for Jennifer Wilbanks if she took all the money she’s going to make from this and contributed it to her home town in payment for what she put the town through. Fat chance, though.
I’m sure Jennifer Wilbanks has some emotional problems, and I don’t want to belittle that. But what she did was inexcusable. That’s okay, though: Everyone makes mistakes.
What’s not okay is the way she’s cashing in on the horrible ordeal she put others through.
Georgia officials, who fined Wilbanks just $15,000 or so for search efforts that cost the community more than $43,000, are left to fume over the hypocrisy.
Contrary to the contrite, moral image she has tried to present publicly – sending her pastor to face journalists in the first press conference held after she returned to Georgia – Wilbanks has done little to take personal responsibility for the trouble she has caused. Her deal to earn 10 times the money public officials wasted searching for her only further rewards a troubled woman who needs time away from the world stage, not more attention.
Here, John! Here boy! Good dog. Stay. Stay.
