"Some people said she was beautiful. Well, she was at least attractive". Words to that effect, indicating she recognized that Dahlia wasn't really beautiful.

That was some awesome shade. 

She didn't appear to have a lisp with her natural, pre-Instagram teefs. I wonder where she got the money to get those done? They're certainly not cheap. (My guess is that she went back to escorting at some point.) 

Anyway, she is 5000% a psychopath. I'd like to say I'm surprised she found someone to conveniently impregnate her but, you know, she's so "beautiful" how could they not?

Ugh!! That's all I have to say about Dalia, her lisp, and her lips.

And her llama teeth.

Could be! But they looked like new veneers to me.

I wonder what Dahlia used as currency to hire the two high profile lawyers who defended her in the second and third trials? Hmmm.

I can't believe though that the prosecution went with a 'pared down' version of trial one in the second trial, including not calling on Dahlia's ex. He was shown to be a likable guy (criminal past not withstanding) and with two high profile lawyers defending her and the obvious fact that she has no problem coming up with bizarre defenses,  WTH were they thinking? 

I am 5000 percent sure that Dahlia should have been given more time behind bars, if only because she brought a child into the world in hopes of garnering sympathy. There are no words to describe how despicable she is.

I am rewatching Dalia’s ep right now - the interrogation. I wish the detective had told her to take off her stupid hat. Mainly just because I dislike her so much but also you can’t really see her expressions very well.

”Your husband’s alive.”

”Mike, come here. Come here, please.”

Freak.

ETA: I think in earlier days she had more vampire-like teeth and her current teeth due look more like veneers. Why am I watching this?

i agree Mike is surprisingly likable. He’s funny. I suppose his charm helped him be a good conman. Still, I don’t hate him.

I don’t find Mike likable. He’s likable in comparison to Dalia, but that’s about it. He’s a criminal that stole money from innocent people who was so vain he had his “love handles” removed, fake tan etc. But, mostly, a thief. Where did he get the $100,000 retribution from, that’s what I want to know.  That said, he didn’t deserve to be killed. I just never found him charming. 
 

I always love watching the sting video when they inform Dalia that Mike is dead and she tries to fling herself into that cops arms and he’s doing his best to push her away while still keeping his cover.

I wish the prosecution had asked her something like this (and maybe they did) but if you were filming a reality show, where was the cut footage or asking for a reshoot or were you such a good actress you never messed up a line?

I find Mike likeable too.

I realize in the grand scheme of things this means nothing but was Dahlia able to retain ownership of her husband’s house?  

No. He had to go to court but did get their condo.

Jesus. How on Earth are people rallying behind this thing (Marni)? What a lying sack of crap. I feel for her kids having to get pulled back into this mess. She’s right where she belongs. She’s an utterly grotesque woman - both inside and out. Truly ugly. Poor Rhoni. Beautiful woman who paid the price for loving such a complete trash d**k.

Marni is insane. I followed this case when it originally happened. Sadly this show wasn’t long enough to discuss not only all the evidence against Marni, her past antics but all the weirdness of it. The cyberstalking and tracking him. He’d make travel reservations, she would cancel them and he’d think it was bad luck or an employee error when he would show up and get told the reservation was cancelled or only the reservation for his companion was cancelled. Serious creepy stuff. 
 

I wish stories like this would make men wake up! I’m so sorry for Rhoni’s Family. She seemed too confident to be putting up with two decades of a non committal guy.

Also, if the reality show plan had been true, why did Mike throw her under the bus and let her go to prison?

Marni is guilty. She needs to be in prison until she dies.

 Sean Gayle is a nasty cheater. I googled him and seems like he doesn’t have any kids to this day.

Damn, tonight's episode actually brought tears to my eyes. My heart goes out to Yingying's family and her boyfriend. The sheer devastation and pain in their faces is going to stick with me for a good, long while. And her dad talking about sitting around her apartment at one point hoping she'd return, and the whole thing with him and his son having to listen to the horrors of what happened to her at the trial. Those poor, poor people. 

And Christensen. Ye gods, talk about skin-crawling. "They're all here for me" made me want to reach through the screen and smack him across the face. What the actual fuck? And the way he bragged about what he'd done to Yingying as well. Kudos to the eagle-eyed officer who was able to take notice of the issue with the hubcap, thus making it easier to track Christensen down more quickly. It honestly wouldn't surprise me one bit if he had killed before her, but even if he hadn't, I have absolutely no doubt that, had he not been caught for this murder, he would've done it again.

His dad kinda irked me, too. 

As for the stuff with the school's counselor, yeah, I can agree that they could've done more. Their statement said they weren't responsible for Yingying's death, but the fact remains they let somebody who posed a potential threat to the campus and town roam free. I know it's one thing to say one has murderous thoughts and another to act on it, but...even so, the woman who talked with him did flag his case, indicating some level of concern, so... Course, I also imagine their hands may have been tied on some level, too. I dunno. 

I'm also doubting they'll ever find any remnant of Yingying in that landfill, sadly, given how much time has passed. But if they ever do want to dig through there and see if they can find something to help the family get some level of closure or something, then hey, go for it. I think the family does deserve that if it can be done. 

Just a truly heartbreaking story all around.

The mother was breaking my heart. 

So his lawyers "off the record" told law enforcement what he did with the body before the trial. Could they not quietly have done a landfill search then? Waiting until years later after the trial makes it virtually impossible, but I'm sure there was some kind of written confidentiality agreement.

I read the transcript of the taped confession. Brendt is a sadistic psychopath narcissist. And while I'm glad that his girlfriend Tara did wear the wire, she also sounds like a complete lunatic.

It's not surprising that he would attend a vigil in and of itself, because a lot of killers do things like that, but after seeing the depths of grief Yingying's family was going through, knowing he was walking not far behind them at that vigil, and knowing he was gleefully bragging to his girlfriend about his crimes as he did so....that honestly made me ill. That's just beyond sick.

Also, they mentioned she was put in multiple garbage bags, which indicates he did a lot more to her than what we heard in that confession. Eesh.

I imagine (I hope) Brendt's wife is wishing she'd just up and divorced him now instead of giving him that ultimatum of a divorce or an open marriage.

Dalia is homely looking. She wants to spend more time with her son. Well then don’t commit crimes.

Both Marni and Dalia were considered pretty which I never understood. Both guilty as hell too!

I never got the cheater thing from Sean. He seemed like he was pretty upfront about not wanting to be in a committed relationship.  Women shouldn’t say it’s cool with them if it’s not. Rhoni seemed to be managing it ok. It’s Marni that went off the deep end and she knew he was seeing a bunch of other women. I wonder if Marni thought the baby would change things w/ him being more committed to Rhoni and that’s why she was targeted. Also this 20/20 never mentioned that Christi knew where Rhoni’s bracelet was buried b/c Marni told her and the police went and got it.
