Natalie Khawam: Here's Gloria
The Real Housewives of Tampa evolve into Desperate Housewives: If you thought Natalie Khawam and Gloria Allred were going to answer questions about Gen. Petraeus, Gen. Allen or her sister Jill Kelley's relationship with them, you'd be mistaken.
Today's news conference was a publicity fest about Khawam's custody battle which Allred wants to turn into a women's rights issue. Does anyone care that Natalie and Jill played softball and tennis and like cooking and playing chess and piano? [More...]
I look forward to the day when I'm able to answer everyone's questions and explain what really happened."
Allred called reports on Khawam's custody battle "erroneous" and said a number of women's groups are filing friends of the court briefs about "significant issues" in Khawam's case...
...Natalie is just one of the many mothers in this country who have been forced to suffer because of family court decisions."
I've excerpted many of the court filings here. I'm not seeing a women's rights issue in her case. If anything, it raises the issue of how difficult it is for anyone, male or female, who doesn't have hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, to fight false charges of domestic violence or a spouse's removal of a child from the jurisdiction without consent.
Meanwhile, Paula Broadwell and her family have returned to their home, and a friend of Jill Kelley's says one of Paula's anonymous emails to Kelley threatened "to make her go away" which Kelley took as a threat on her life.
