25 years later: Mary Jo Buttafuoco, her cheating husband, and the Long Island Lolita

On May 19, 1992, Mary Jo Buttafuoco was shot in the head on the front porch of her home in Massapequa, New York. The assailant was Amy Fisher, a 17-year-old student who was having an affair with Joey Buttafuoco, Mary Jo’s husband.

Luckily, Mary Jo survived. She wrote a book about her experience called, Getting It Through My Thick Skull: Why I Stayed, What I learned, and What Millions of People Involved with Sociopaths Need to Know.

Lovefraud wrote about the book when it came out in 2010. Read the review.

Now, 25 years later, the story of the “Long Island Lolita,” as Fisher was named by the media, is the subject of a new series on Reelz called, Scandal Made Me Famous. Read more:

Donald Trump’s abusive behavior triggers PTSD — and so does Hillary Clinton’s


Presidential nominee Donald Trump went to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, the site of one of the bloodiest battles of America’s Civil War, supposedly to outline his plans for his first 100 days in office. But first, he said he’d sue the women who accused him of groping or kissing them without their consent.

Typical abusive behavior

Trump denied and threatened. That’s the typical behavior of an abuser — and it’s triggering symptoms of PTSD in women who have endured sexual assault and/or relationships with sociopaths.

A Lovefraud reader wrote:

I wanted to bring up something that has been happening and it’s alarming.  While Trump has been campaigning for president, it has caused flashbacks and triggered memories of my experiences with the sociopath.

I asked this reader about her symptoms. She explained:

Joe Morrissey, jailed for sex with a 17-year-old employee, leads Richmond’s race for mayor

Eight people are running for mayor of Richmond, Virginia. In a poll released a few weeks ago, Joe Morrissey held a comfortable lead, with 28% of the vote. The second-place candidate had 16%.

Morrissey, a former prosecutor and state delegate, has a lot of name recognition — probably because he’s in the news a lot for bad behavior.

  • Morrissey was busted for having sex with a 17-year-old assistant in his law firm. First he denied everything, then, when the girl turned out to be pregnant, married her.
  • Morrissey went to jail for fighting a defense attorney, and for beating a contractor.
  • Morrissey was cited for contempt of court 10 times, and went to jail for it.

Mark Holmberg of WTVR in Richmond calls Morrissey a “one man circus” and wants voters to elect someone else.

Holmberg: OMG: Sextin’ Joe Morrissey is leading the mayor’s race! on WTVR.com.

The murder trial that’s rocked the UK

The Archers

Actor Timothy Watson, who plays Rob Titchener, with the actress Louiza Partikas, who plays Helen, in BBC Radio 4 soap ‘The Archers.’

By our reporter in Borchester, Michael Path

Charismatic, charming and controlling Rob Titchener, the ‘perfect’ husband and step-father, was knifed by his heavily pregnant wife Helen last April after she decided to leave him. Shortly before the knife attack, Titchener told her she was ‘clingy, feeble-minded, an over-sensitive harpy, desperate to be loved, desperate to be needed . . . An unhinged, single-parent disaster zone, a lonely, frigid spinster just yearning for a real man to complete her’.

After telling her that ‘You’re mine. Wherever you are I’ll always be there’ and slapping her, he put a knife in her hand and taunted her that she was ‘nothing’ without him. He then dared her to commit suicide like her former partner, Greg Turner, telling her, ‘It’s the only way I’m ever going to let you go’. After threatening her son, Henry, Titchener was then stabbed and badly wounded.

Con man Tony Stratos scams Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife out of $7 million


Tony Stratos

Career con man Tony Stratos — whose real name is Troy Stafford, although he has multiple aliases — will soon be going to trial after stealing $7 million from Nicole Murphy, ex-wife of actor Eddie Murphy.

Nicole knew Stratos since they were teenagers. When she got a $15 million settlement in her divorce from Eddie Murphy, Stratos told her he could invest the money for her overseas and she would earn a high rate of return.

Stratos never invested the money. He spent it on gambling and financing his extravagant lifestyle.

Nicole Murphy wasn’t his only victim. Stratos was recently convicted of an $11 million fraud involving Facebook stock. He also defrauded multiple other men and women.

EXCLUSIVE: Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife Nicole Murphy tells of ‘nightmare’ $7 million fraud by high-living conman who is finally going to trial – five years after his arrest, on DailyMail.co.uk.

Darren Sharper in 2011

Darren Sharper played 14 years in the NFL, for the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints. He was named All-Pro six times and played in two Super Bowls. He retired in 2011 and became an analyst with NFL Network. Then his life got weird.

Sharper, 41, pleaded guilty or no-contest to charges of drugging and raping nine women in Louisiana, Arizona, California and Nevada, although there may be as many as 16 victims.

He cut a plea deal to serve a total of 9 years for the crimes. But on August 18, 2016, U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo threw out the plea deal, and sentenced him to 18 years. “We can never ignore the damage you inflicted on those women and society at large,” she said.
