Despite nearly being killed by her boyfriend, country singer Mindy McCready insists she still loves the scumbag.
This misguided sentiment runs so deep that she became with child well after the incident of abuse. She insists this was unintentional, of course.
This must mean she became pregnant after eating a watermelon seed or something was in the water because one does not become impregnated unexpectedly unless she wants to file charges of rape. Or perhaps, her man is so oozing with testosterone that, besides his bestial rages, he can have the impact in question from clear across a room without even touching a woman.
Since she is not bound by matrimony to this human detritus, there is nothing keeping her in this situation. Given her fame and fortune, she is perfectly free to leave whenever she wants; and given her celebrity status, it is well within the scope of her resources to acquire someone else slightly used like herself with a more amicable disposition. It’s not like she is dependent upon him as her only means of support.
Maybe if people these days did not rush to play house before they barely know one another, maybe there would be fewer disturbing incidents such as the one she spilled her innards about on Oprah Winfrey since studies indicate couples shacked up and living in sin are more likely to have disputes escalating to physical violence than couples that have solemnized their love for one another before God and man through the binding act of marriage. But in this day of escalating cohabitation and out of wedlock births setting new records, I will probably find many so-called Christians and Conservatives who probably have fewer problems with this sign of obvious social decay than letting their kids go Trick-Or-Treating.
An old saying goes, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” Given what she knows of her beau’s temperament, should such a mishap ever again befall the couple Prince Charming should be held accountable for his crimes, but in the ultimate sense Miss McCready has no one to blame but herself and deserves not one ounce of public sympathy.
