Joey Buttafuoco hits Mary Jo with lawsuit

In Getting It Through My Thick Skull, Mary Jo Buttafuoco comes out and says that her ex-husband, Joey Buttafuoco, is a sociopath.

Not surprisingly, Joey doesn’t like having his “good name” dragged through the mud. According to the New York Post, he plans to file a lawsuit against Mary Jo. Read:

Joey hits Mary Jo with suit

I hope Mary Jo fights this case and wins. There are no legal guidelines on when someone can be described as a sociopath, which is one reason why the media are so reluctant to use the term. Lovefraud will certainly keep an eye on this story.

Thanks to Matt for the tip!

Getting It Through My Thick Skull is available in the Lovefraud Store.

    How I overcame survivor’s guilt.

    The Lacy/Peterson year long trial was the beginnng of PTSD, which scares me at first, until I sought counseling.

    I learned that I had reacted so severely to such news was partly due to that the numerous times I had been unexpectly physically abused during the “marriage,” that I never reacted, just froze. But the terror was still “in” there and were now trying to be released.

    The advice I was given was to just stop and allow the feelings to flow out of me and to endure the physical sensations until they were gone, not matter how long it took. I was lucky to be living alone with no family responsibilities so I did that whenever the “trigger” clicked in and let it happen. I didn’t think or analyze, just felt the sensations. The first year, sometimes it took a full day to recover. By the second year, the “triggers” happened less frequently. The third year was quite peaceful.

    I think I’ve only experienced two or three in the intervening years. The most recent one was when one of the site interlopers posted — and his arrogance and sense of superiority were so like Ex’s that it triggered a reaction that lasted about four hours.

    Knowledge is indeed power! When I understood “triggers” I could handle them.

    I wonder what experiences with “triggers” other posters have had?

    LTL and Jenn, yeah, I woke up to the news he’d hanged himself.
    such a horrible creepy case from start to finish.

    a quote from his mother…

    Reached shortly after the news broke Sunday night, his mother, Nada Jenkins, said she still believes her son is innocent.

    “I think he panicked, my little boy, and we had to protect him, even now that he’s dead,” she said, sobbing.

    *sigh* My little boy? he was how old?

    I had a violent boyfriend waaaaaaay way back in time, who put me in hospital a number of times, then after it eneded I heard allegations of rape being made by other women and blah, but this reminded me, his mother once said to me (a seemly ‘nice’ woman) that even if her son ‘went down’ for murder, she would stand by him… eeeeeeerm!?

    I am not sure if I am glad he is dead or pissed that he wont see justice first.

    Please forgive me for not remembering (or finding in the comments) the awesome member who suggested viewing the documentary “Dear Zachary: A Letter to a son about his father”

    I watched it last night and I haven’t cried that hard or long in ages. I cried for the heartbreaking, devastating, tragic reality of really beautiful and loving people. They all suffered so much (and continue to do so) due to one most assuredly psychopathic female.

    Since I just watched it last night, I would agree with the bereaved father and say I also hate that bitch, Shirley Turner. Her seflishness knows zero bounds in the brutality, the callousness of the crimes she committed against innocent, wonderful human beings.

    This film will be in my mind and heart forever and I will count myself uberblessed if I am never confronted with such useless, worthless, sick evil as that female Shirley Turner embodied.
