Would someone post the link to the May 2009 video interview so that
Gary Chapman can get up to speed with what his ex is saying or maybe he doesn't care anymore?

I thought it was a refreshingly sincere one Phan. Only happened to see it because of your link. Thanks for that.

I keep losing my posts here, like the elusive sock that lost it's mate. If you find it, let me know.

Not that it matters greatly...

I'm feeling like heck for watching Saturday Night Live recently, laughing at the way Blake Lively acted the part of a young starlet ( whose name escapes me at this moment.) Well, since I'm hooked on Health Reform news lately, the TV is on. I just heard this young girl died, at the age of 32! Sad.

There was a 6 minute segment and a 12 minute segment. Both were mind-numbingly boring.
How many times is she going to go over her childhood?

I just now really read this. Do you mean Brittany M.? She was really good in Uptown Girls.
When they had Scarlett Johanson try to do a nanny kind of movie, not as good. JMO.

I do no understand why they try to make a country singer's wife an authority on life, parenting,
spirituality/christianity, etc. Also, is it right when you come into a stepchild's life when they are grown and then say I have 5 children, but I birthed four of them? Thank goodness she is now totally grown, out of the house, and doing her own thing. A little too mothery smothery, but if it works for them, more power to them.

How do you "reckon" the mother of 5 and Cassie get along?

There were two segments. This is the link to the one where she talks about reconciliation and love for one another and that it was a long time in coming or am I hearing something that wasn't said?
Maybe it was wishful thinking or she was trying to get a message to you at least that she still loves you and is sorry you couldn't make that "vase" hold water. I can't imagine comparing your husband to a vase and that at some point you have to get a new vase because that one won't hold water.
I never remember her being that way when she was with you. She claims having 5 children and birthing four of them is responsible for missing brain cells, incomplete thoughts, etc. That's right.
Blame it on the kids when all else fails. That was in a different interview.

My guilty pleasure is Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. I'm trying to make myself go renew my license/certification and get back in the game working with substance abuse. It's just so hard because like one of them said...they very rarely tell the truth. So manipulative and good at it too.
I probably have too much compassion because when one of the STAFF thought that Kari Ann and the guy, Michael, should be tossed out of the program for getting bored and acting out, I thought they should find a more creative way to deal with it. Just like I figured, Kari Ann decided she wasn't finishing and called her manager to get her the "EFF" out of there. TV these days seems to be mostly reality tv anyway which is not REALITY anyway.

There was nothing for me to get over. Was sad for her family for what they were going through but could not have been happier for Vince and Amy's union. They had waited a long time to finally be together. Things have a way of working out.

I'm sorry she has to make things up. Must be awful for her. Sorry to read she had post-partum depression and seasonal depression. Many people with that wouldn't continue having kids.
It often gets worse with each pregnancy and worse in older women. Funny thing, she was out on the golf course soon after the last birth.

And yet #2 barely gets a mention. No mention of Corrina or Jenny or the "I Do" kids as Vince calls them. It's interesting that Amy talks about a church in DeLeon where she experienced people praying out loud all at the same time, some of them wailing, and God having to try to heart and sort through all of that. She also again talks about being raised Southern/COC and attending church three times a week.

Later talks about being in a church where girls were "sleeping around" and singing
"Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?"

Gary's book (if it ever sees daylight) may give more insight because he actually lived it, Brian.
The BHOL videos on here only tells part of the story. Why don't you analyze Amy's mental health or Gary's. Why do you choose to try to do my personal inventory on here and then when I correct you,
you say you don't care? Since we're throwing out words, how about passive-aggressive. Does the shoe fit for you?

Hope you little dig a little deeper and get through your wall of denial. I'm sure you will come back to see if your posts get answered. No one stops cold turkey.

My only "beef" with Amy at this point is that none of her music since she got with Vince has been very compelling and he has taken some of the music from before their marriage and changed it so much that it's not compelling either. Could it be that he is more controlling than she imagined?

I think there is more than meets the eyes. I don't know if Gary will go into any of it in the book.

As he taught, Jesus said,“Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted in the marketplaces, and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets. They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely.”

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.

Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said,“I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything — all she had to live on.”

Why don't you tell Beth in one of the music threads that? Better yet, challenge Gary to
a game of wits. My money is on GARY.

It was a sweet and gracious and tasteful book. She is at the very least a wonderful role model for divorced couples. In her recent interview with Sally Quinn of the Washington Post Amy was spoke very lovingly of her ex and their currect relationship. It was refreshing to read a "celebrity" book with no inappropriate or disparaging comments about anyone.

Uh...yeah. I'm unaware of her claims.
We are cordial but treat each other exactly like we have for the last decade.
Nothing's changed.

Define cordial. Does that include chats around a dining table lasting two hours where you proclaim your love for one another and where all of your families have reconciled? You know, the bone broken and casted is stronger than the original bone theory? Are there a few bottles missing from her wine cellar?

No two hour chats. Family reconciliation is a misstatement of fact.
Can't address the wine cellar but I would suspect it's replenished with regularity.

Finally saw the interview after all the talk.
Weird...and sad.
Looks like she was having a "rambling" day.
We've all got better things to do.

Thanks for setting the record straight on here. I think she does "blended" or ended families a great disservice by pretending that the mere passage of time will cause everything to work itself out to a point where it's peaceful and respectful. Have you noticed she never mentions Vince's mother (her mother-in-law) and when you see pics, it's Vince and his mom alone. No mention of her in the last few years from either or did I miss it? Didn't Vince's parents divorce whereas Amy came from a non-divorced set of parents. Ditto for Gary. I don't buy the broken bone analogy.

I hope someone finally gets the message on this round.
Yes, I agree with Gary that it's just weird and sad.
