I watched all the episodes in a row yesterday, and althought this is clearly slanted towards Betty and is anti-Dan, I still found it interesting. I followed this back in the day, followed both her trials, read every book and have seen, seemingly, every news program and mini-series on her, Dan and Linda.
My thoughts: All were toxic. Betty could not accept a divorce, and I agree with Dan that no money would have been enough for her. I do have to say I LOVED the scene where Dan told her, "No, you are NOT gonna tell me who to hire and fire at MY company."
Dan and Linda - engaging in an office romance while you are her boss and married: both gross. Betty: Accept he does not want to be with you. I have a hard time with her inability to accept six figures in alimony. Yes, he was a big earner but dang!! She should not have been surprised at not getting custody. She rammed an SUV through his house. That is seen as unstable, as it is!!!
I have heard a rumor that Linda is not really buried with Dan, her family did not want her near where they felt the problems arose. Just a rumor, though.
I am not on as much as an anti-Dan bandwagon as others, although he was a dick, but man.....dealing with Betty? Never knowing what you are coming home to? Chocolate cake smeared everywhere? Breaking into your house and breaking stuff?
There was an interview with a lawyer who disputed Betty's theory that no lawyer would represent her. His words were, and I paraphrase: "Yes Dan was a shark but San Diego is a very large city with many sharks, she could have found someone."
I felt kinda bad for Betty at the hearing, she kept trying to get Dan to admit to an affair but Cali is a no fault state. Sorry, Bets. She was in waaaay over her head.
