Why is ET glorifying Mary Kay Letourneau's wedding?

May 20, 2005 at 11:10 PM

letourneau-fualaau1.jpg

I can't believe how much positive heart-warming coverage Entertainment Tonight has given to Mary Kay Letourneau's wedding to her former student. This is a woman who had a sexual relationship with her twelve year-old student when she was a married 34 year-old mother of four, and had his baby when he was fifteen. Now you're glorifying their marriage? ET has had tons of interviews and complete wedding coverage, including video coverage of the rehearsal dinner and on location reports today from the wedding site.

It's like they think it's a royal wedding. Absolutely no negative connotation to anything, all covered in an almost romantic tone. Unbelievable.

It looks like a royal wedding. For a teacher who's been in jail for seven years, who paid for the limo and security services? Maybe ET paid for all of that.

It's pathetic, pitiful and down-right outrageous! What else was there left for the young man, Villy, to do? I agree that she took away his childhood. Yes, she robbed him of his virginity and a normal life as an adolescent. She conceived both of the children that they have together while he was still a teenager and on top of that--in jail! She needed help long before she ever got to him and he needs some serious and long-term counseling for what he has gone through. Obviously, his mother condoned it. His family didn't have to support the marriage! Whatever happened to the original family that she had with her ex-husband and older children? Those poor children! Her ex-husband? How is he dealing with all of this!? I was in shock when the story hit the news not too long ago---that she had molested a naiive, lonely and distraught boy student of her's. And I am just as in more shock knowing that she has gotten the last laugh! She is telling America and has been for some time now that she doesn't regret what she did and to screw our societies norms as well as any kind of morals and values that I am sure her parents attempted to instill in her. Just because the young man is of legal age now doesn't make what she did right. She is sick sick sick!

Thank you very much!

I too, find it aggravating the attention that the media has given to this case ever since Ms. Letourneau left prison! All the interviews, all that has been said and written about her and her young raped lover make no sense to me but are a mockery of all the family values we teach our children!

“They look so happy!” Sure, with all the moneys Mary Kay and Villi have been getting in cash and gifts, I too, would pose happily, would quit my job and retire right this minute!

ET has the nerve to call it “the wedding of the year”! ET is treating these people like celebrities when they are not! Here is a woman who set a bad example to teachers and their students years ago when she did what she did, went to prison and got out of it as a sex offender for life, has NO JOB, is marrying her high school drop out who DOES NOT have a job either, she has the nerve to go to bridal stores to shop for her gown bragging that “money is not a problem at all!”, has a lavish wedding ceremony and reception, her groom dressed in an expensive Armani tuxedo, all in the party wearing designer’s clothes and tell me, who is paying for all that “circus?” I would really love to know!

Amazingly, the same media that is calling this the “wedding of the year”, called celebrities Liza Minelli's and David Gest’s wedding a “circus!” Well, at least Minelli and Gest paid for it all on their own!

The big deal that ET is doing out of this Letourneau/Fuaulau “circus” is an overwhelmingly outrageous slap on the faces of all of us!

I don’t think they would care to make a big deal out of the life and struggles of a woman like myself (and many others) whose husband left me overnight with two toddlers, no food in the house, $19.67 in the bank and 15.34 in the wallet. Thirteen years have gone by and I am proud to say that I have been raising both my children with much dignity and in private Christian schools, bought my own house, give them a decent and comfortable lifestyle with NO child support, but by the grace of God and my lawfully gained employment. Both my children had their Barakah (Christian Mitzvah) at their 13th birthday; my son is now 16, is an extremely talented contemporary Christian singer who has won competitions and awards and will graduate from high school next year with 32 college credits and so will my daughter when her time comes! But I guess exceptional kids and their struggling “double” parents (those who are mom and dad) don’t count: they are too “ordinary” to make the news! Their lives are too straight, too decent, their examples are too positive and far away from becoming scandals and therefore, are not attractive to the media's eyes! People like us are just not “dishes” for reporters and journalists!

I live my life to serve God, my children, my job and our church because those are my priorities! It was my choice not to ever engage in any other relationship because my children come first! But I guess that being decent and having values does not count for the media: decent people are “too square” and do not sell the news, we do not make the ratings!

I wish the Fuaulaus well in their choices as much as I wish they stop their free riding, gold digging and capitalizing on the media’s favors and money! I hope they start living their lives with honesty and dignity to support themselves and their children through decently earned employment and that they adopt a VERY, but VERY low profile!
I personally had enough of their garbage!!!

Hero mother - you sound like a very bitter person who cannot let go of a wrong that was done to you. You talk all about being a Christian and yet you sound so hateful. Please try to believe that what happened to you was God's purpose for your life and not let it poison you so much that you feel so hateful towards two people you do not even know. The Christian way would be to forgive both them and your husband and count the blessings that were and are still being bestowed upon you by God. May God Bless you.

To Eliana B. whatever your issue is don't be hateful. It's all about love, regardless of how you feel morally. May God Bless you too.

OK... you people need to leave your God out of all this. 99.9% of you "religious" people are freaked out hypocrites. It was ET who screwed us all once again. I never liked that show because it like that rag People magazine where there's a bunch of pictures but not one decent writer in them. I'll give you one reason that ET did this, sex sells, no matter what form it came in, it sells. MK being as beautiful as she is sells. Villi being freakish looking that he is sells. It got you talking and will make other curious of what will be on ET next time. Rule of the thumb, no publicity is bad publicity.

She's a disgrace!!!!! Plain and simple, their relationship should have never began. She was the adult and he was the child - she knew better!!!!!!!!!!! I feel for her children; I feel for all of them!!!!!! Age should never matter when it comes to love, however, when it's between a young child and a grown adult...

"She was the adult and he was the child - she knew better!!!!!!!!!!! "

That's why it worked so well.
By the way, WHO initiated this relationship ?

One of the only reproach I make to her was that she didn't want to use condoms.

"Age should never matter when it comes to love, however, when it's between a young child and a grown adult..."

How can you know this ?
VK wasn't a child (biological meaning), otherwise she would have never got pregnant. I have read studies on people who had sex with adults during their childhood or adolescence.

I have no reason to believe that any harm was done by MK.

The police and social workers have maybe bullied Villy to make him "understand" that what he had done with MK was "so bad to him". Things would have been worse MK were a man.

First of all-- why are you guys bashing her? You keep forgetting that VILI IS THE ONE WHO INITIATED THE RELATIONSHIP NOT MARY KAY! HE WAS NOT RAPED! He knew exactly what he was doing just because he was 12 does not make him dumb and incapable of carring on an adult relationship. Maybe he was mature for his age? I think the wedding was beautiful. There was nothing wrong with what ET or The Insider did on covering the wedding. Lastly, I understand why the relationship happened she was going through hell at the time in her life. Her father dying of Cancer, her marriage falling apart, her miscarriage, all of these things would definately work on someone emotionally and physically. She reached out to her husband for emotional support and she didn't get it. I think Vili was just there at the right time to give her the emotional support she needed. I think they deserve to be supported in their marriage and I wish the best them the best in all they do.

Jean: Did you really just claim you would feel different if the relationship was between an adult man and young girl??

Name removed: Wow I really hope you're joking. The kid was 12 years old and just as importantly she was his teacher!! Even as adults there are rules and laws that protect people from relationships and pressures brought by one in authority on someone in an inferior position. So if adults need protection, I'm pretty sure a twelve year old kid needs at least the same protection from a teacher.

How would you both feel if it was your child in the same situation?

I am amazed at how this whole story still seems to make top stories in the news 8 years after the initial arrest. I had Mary as a teacher in second grade, and she was my teacher again my sixth grade year at the time of her initial arrest. Many people dont realize that her husband was not very good to her, and he would randomly come to school pull her outside and yell at her and then storm off. She was searching for someone to latch on to and give her the love she hadn't had in a long time. She had always had a special and real attatchment to Villi which is very difficult to understand but wether that sort of attatchment can be obtained by a 7th grader is questionable, but her feelings were real, and she just made the mistake of choosing the wrong person. But she is and will always be one of the most genuinely nice and helpful people I have ever encountered and if you speak with any of her past students or students parents you will never hear anything but praise about her as a person or teacher.

I cant believe the fact that most ppl here have already judge them without even knowing them. when i've heard the news here in europe for the first time, i agreed with the arrest...but now i realize that they have gone through alot and theyr love still lasts, and mostly the ones in here who judge claiming morality, others christianity, r nothing but hypocrites who have just realized that will spend the rest of theyr lives divorcing over and over again (or wouldnt the USA be the nation with the highest divorce rate in the world) because they cant seem to find the ONE.

I said it would have been worse for Villi if Mary had been a man. Guess what his classmates would have thought about him if he had had sex with a MAN.

Thus I wouldn't feel different for man/boy, man/girl, woman/girl or woman/boy relationship as long as there's mutual respect. My comment was based on the society's prejudice that boy who have sex with become homosexual.

No sound study support this view.

I cannot understand why some of you think that it's ok to molest children. If this was a man having sex with a 13 year old you would want him hung. Perhaps you molest children as well and that's why you think it's beautiful.

Posted on August 20, 2005 at 10:48 PM

19 Jean 939 said...

Mike, don't you know there are a lot of children & adolescents who have been "molested", "abused" or "raped" by adults and who think it was beautiful ?

But ask them how they feel when they are called "abused". They find it offensive to REAL victims.

You probably have been shocked by Rind et al's study (*) on child sexual abuse, published in 1998 by the American Psychological Association, & still believe it advocates the sexual abuse of children ! You still believe it was seriously flawed. But if you had read it, & Rind et al's responses to criticisms (available on the web), you wouldn't have written this post. Unless you're of bad faith.

It is definitely one thing to be an adult forcing yourself on a child, but in this case, those were NOT the circumstances. VILI initiated this relationship. VILI knew EXACTLY what he was doing. Vili grew up in a difficult house, and maturely very quickly for his age as a result.

I myself met my fiance when I was just 14 years old (and he's 10 years older than I). At the time, I handled myself BETTER and MORE MATURELY than his ex-girlfriend who was his age. Now it's 6 years later, and we're just as in love now and we were when we met.

I'm glad those two found each other again. I think they honestly do love each other, and in the world we live in today, with divorce rates as high as they are, one should be so damn lucky to find the one that will love them beyond a shadow of a doubt. One should be so lucky.

Hi, everybody!
Yesterday I saw for the first time a documentary on this (I live in Europe). I don't know how can you get a male to get hard without his consent, etc... As a result, their two children would have been their common wish.

Yo, gossip hens, quit your [expletive deleted]! Mary Kay Leteurnau rocks! Every guy I knew, when the first story broke, wished he was in VIlli’s place. You DO remember that teenage-boy anthem, don’t you? "Got it bad, got it bad, got it bad - I’m hot for teacher!" Guys have been that way ever since they first realized that girls were not really "yucky". You all would have to be crazy to deny the reality of that. That’s is why this is different than if it were a male of 36 with a female of 13. Live and let live. Maybe there’s a Paris Hilton or Madonna story just around the corner for you to bend yourselves up about.

I cannot believe some of the crap that is spewing out of ignorant mouths on this topic.

A twelve year old is allowed to have a crush and even flirt with an adult teacher. He was a pre-teen for gods sake. A sane and responsible adult would have set boundaries and made other school officials aware of his behavior/advances.

An adult has no excuse to sleep/touch/fondle a child, period. If this was a female 12 year old student the response would be much different. Some of you seem to think that males children are somehow immune to molestation or that because they are curious at a younger age than women it is okay for an adult to sleep with them. That is disgusting and I wonder if the MK supporters have done some molesting themselves.

Do me a favor next time you excuse her actions.

Everyone of you people are such f'ing hypocrits. You put down the media for covering this wedding, etc. yet you are obviously watching it, how else would all of you know what they are wearing and what is going on. You feed on it sucking up the details no matter how vulgur you think it is. How angry was anyone when Jerry Lee Lewis married his 13 year old niece???? This relationship was widely flaunted, the media sold millions of records and danced away to his music, some of which he probably made love to this child. Not that I condon either relationship, but you women kill me, it's ok for a man to screw a child, but god help if a woman does it.

I BELIEVE THAT WHEN TWO PEOPLE ARE IN LOVE THAT IT DOES NOT MATTER ABOUT THEIR AGE. MARY KAY AND VILLI FOUND EACH OTHER AND NOW THEY ARE HAPPY AND I AM HAPPY FOR THEM. CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM.I KNOW SHE WAS A TEACHER AND HE WAS HER STUDENT BUT YOU WERE IN SCHOOL ONCE AND YOU KNEW HOW IT WAS TO HAVE A TEACHER THAT YOU REALLY LIKED AND THAT WOULD FLIRT WITH YOU TOO. I BELIEVE THAT THEY ARE SOULMATES WHO ACTUALLY FOUND EACH OTHER AND I KNOW EVERYONE MIGHT NOT AGREE BUT IT IS NONE OF ANY ONE ELSE'S BUSINESS. IT IS THEIR LIFE AND IT IS MY OPINION TO SUPPORT THEM. CONGRATS TO THE HAPPY COUPLE!!!!!!!

MOST PEOPLE DO FIND IT ODD THAT I AM A GIRL AND I SUPPORT THEIR DECISION TO GET MARRIED BUT YOU ALSO HAVE TO THINK OF THE KIDS. THEY ARE ALREADY HERE SO IT IS BETTER TO HAVE TWO PARENTS THAN JUST ONE! PEOPLE WOULDN'T HAVE SAID ANYTHING IT VILLI WOULD HAVE BEEN OLDER. AGE IS JUST A NUMBER!JUST LIKE YOU HAVE TO BE 21 YEARS OLD TO DRINK BUT *MOST* IF NOT ALL TEENAGE KIDS DRINK BEFORE THEY ARE 21 YEARS OLD AND *MOST* OF THEM DRIVE A CAR BEFORE THEY ARE LEGAL TO AS WELL!! MOST OF YOU PROBABLY DONE THESE THINGS *WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER*. VILLI HAD TO GROW UP FAST BUT HE REALIZED THAT HE STILL LOVED HER. EVERYONE DOES THINGS THAT THEY ARE NOT PROUD OF BUT ALL PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES BUT IN THIS CASE IT WAS LOVE, *NOT A MISTAKE*.REMEMBER THE SAYING, "YOU CAN'T HELP WHO YOU LOVE".VILLI LOVES HER OR HE WOULDN'T HAVE MARRIED HER.

Why don't you all shut up.. You people need to start worrying about your own marriages instead of complaining about this woman's marriage. No wonder the divorce rate is so high. People worry so much about what's going on about other people's lives that little do you know that there's a problem brewing in your own marriage that you don't even see it coming. Does it even matter if I accept her marriage or not? They still got married anyway. They obviously don't care about what you and I say.

I would like to comment on the the previous women's comments above. Namely, Christina, Marge Mclaughlin, Elise Andrea and Hero Mother. ESPECIALLY you self proclaimed hero mother.
All four of you bitter ladies need to shut your damned pie holes. Mary Kay and Vili are very happy happy together. Just cuz you're not happy dosen't mean they can't be. Now I can see why Hero Mother's husband left her. Any man in his right mind would leave a BiAtch like that. You aforementioned women need to tend to your own lives and stop worrying about other peoples. If you make judgments like you have done it means your own lives need alot of work. Hypocrisy results in a loss of credibility ....Dumb Broads

Unless you are able to consider him/her as a student the rest of the time; unless the teacher/student relationship doesn't interfere with the love relationashipe, I agree with you.

But, that doesn't justify that when a student or generally a minor iniatiates a sexual relationship with an authority figure, the minor is imposed the role of rape victim.

Thankful, Jean939, [Name removed], Chipi, Chelsea, Aecrim, Tommy, Mindy, Melissa, and the abominable Carl are all morons. They ALL find it fine and dandy for a 34 year old to have sex with a 12 year old. They support adults who have sex with children, in other words they are in total support of SEX OFFENDERS. I suspect some of them ARE sex offenders. They are are deranged as LeTourneau; all her supporters are very sick individuals. Poor Chelsea was molested by a man at 14 but considers it "love"; how sad.

I don't think M & V's relationship is purely black or white/right or wrong. It seems to have been and still is quite unique and complex. In the general context it was wrong (laws of our society). But they fell in love and that in and of itself wasn't/isn't wrong. For those that look at this as a Biblical offense, the argument of an adult taking advantage of a child is not right in this case. Mary was a pretty young girl when she was married to the older Joseph... The Biblical offense would be on the grounds of adultry and fornication and they (V & M) seem to have done everything they can to right that wrong.

i think that mary-kay may actually love this vili. however, i wonder if vili feels the same way? i mean a person of his age thinks the first chica he bangs must be "the one". its also strange that when this all happened, wasnt it he and his mother, who tried to sue the school for not protecting him from mary-kay? if he loved her he would not have dared to have done such a thing. furthermore, and this is what i feel is most important....when their 2 girls become teenagers, neither vili or mary-kay have the authority to tell their kids that they cannot see a 40 year old married guy whom they think they have fallen in love with. mary-kay seems so defiant that love will conquer....be realistic hun! vili hasnt got a job, hes in his 20s - at his age, he will be thinking about women around his age. i doubt schools and students will take you seriously again mary-kay. you try to rationalise your actions but youre despicable for doing that. the fact you sold your love on ET shows how shallow the relationship is. im curious as to how her 2 kids will think about their mom, who ran off with a 12 year old kid from a marriage. i dont think mary-kay is a role model for anyone...no matter how many times she tries to smile her way off.

I am conflicted about this entire MK/Villi situation. I don't think it's as simply black and white as some imply. On one hand I have an 11 year old son and would be outraged if his teacher had a romantic intrest in him, or any other adult for that matter. Outraged and heartbroken! But then I don't think an 11 or in Villi's case 13 year boy is ready for sex period no matter what the age of his partner. However if a teenage boy is already sexually active what is the difference is if his partner is his own age or older? Sex is sex, and to put it bluntly the same result happens.

My Mother and Father have been married almost 50 years! They have a GREAT marriage! My Dad was 29 when he married my 15 year old mother! NO ONE is going to tell me my Dad "raped" my Mother. Yet if he were to marry her and consumate that marriage in todays day in age he would be a sex offender? That's crazy!

Why was it okay back in the 50's and even still in other cultures but not okay today and in our culture?

Honestly? As I said I'm conflicted and can see both viewpoints. But I do not think Mary Kay should be compared to an adult molester who rapes or fondles "true" children or babies. I also do not think it should be completely legal for an adult of any age to have sex with anyone under 18. Each case should be judged individually. And if the sex is CLEARLY consensual, and even inisiated by the minor it is NOT rape. I am an adult rape survivor and that both offends and minimizes a 'TRUE' rape.

My Mom was 15 when she had sex with her husband, My Dad, who was 29. They again have been married almost 50 YEARS! They are HAPPY! If I say what Mary Kay did was wrong then it's like I'm saying What my Dad did was wrong and it wasn't! He's the most amazing, wonderful, moral man I know! And without their union I and my 2 sisters would not be here.

I am not Mary Kay's God, therefore I cannot judge her. She will have to face God oneday just as I will. And I am glad I am not in His shoes. But in the meantime? I'm going to give them the benifit of the doubt and wish them well. Only time will tell if this Marriage lasts and it really was love. So far they seem at least on the outside to be the real deal. After all thier love has lasted and survived so much already.

It is a little weird, but after I watched the movie All-American Girl, and read about them, I really thought about it. I dont think shes crazy or a threat to children. They are in love. I hope you and Villi and your children have a wonderful life!

44 Just some guy said...

I did not read all the comments, just the first few; but from what I have read it seems like everybody wants to bash the teacher for what has happened. All the comments read "rape this", "violate that", "take away his childhood", "he needed protection from her, but she took advantage" and yada, yada, yada... Let's wake up, people. Who are we kidding? Finally a young guy's fantasy has come true, and we are making a tragedy out of it? It's not rape or violation or taking advantage. If you ask me, it's a blessing for Villi (lucky dude). Which one of you guys has not had a fantasy about banging one/some/all of your teachers? Come on, let's be honest. You people call her and her actions sick, but I feel sick in the stomach when people can take such a sweet awesome thing and blast it all over the media with the dirtiest names. All young guys want to screw their teachers (and from this affair we find out that some teachers want to do their students as well - God bless them); and if this guy Villi has managed to get in her pants I say more power to him. And shame on all those other students (guys, not the girls) who sued their teachers for what probably was the most awesome time of their lives (of course, one could say they weren't satisfied if they complained). Just a word of advise to them - when a teacher (female teacher to a male student) commits the divine act of letting your fantasy come true by screwing your brains out, you say thank you and not "Let's sue you." Let's all wise up and show some appreciation for the good deeds we receive. God bless you Mary Kay and all you other teachers who open the doors of heaven to your students. I'm just sorry you weren't my teachers (and that my teachers weren't like you) :(((

P.S. Before calling me sick or a pervert, please, everybody, put your hand on your heart and ask yourselves if you've never had a fantasy about being with your teacher...

Good post "Just some guy".
Good to read sb who knows the difference between mutual pleasure and abuse.
I never had any fantasy about having sex with a teacher because none of them were attractive ! But my classmates and I started to have some on a 35 yo woman employed in the school when we were 12/13 yo and we sometimes told her what we thought of her ... Never heard whether any student has realized this fantasy but would she have seduces me, I wouldn't have missed that opportunity.

One reproach to your post though:

You said "And shame on all those other students (guys, not the girls) who sued their teachers for what probably was the most awesome time of their lives (of course, one could say they weren't satisfied if they complained)".
- Maybe they were forced
- Would you have sex with sb you don't find attractive at all ?
- Maybe were ashamed because of education ("no sex until...") and sexual education programs ("if you have sex now, you will regret it but we won't tell you what it is and how to protect yourself")

Two wrongs don't make a right, however it is much more important to for-give than to give hate. There is nothing any one can do with the heart except too him who made the heart.
It looks like this couple have set out to begin again. They are old enough and have time spent enough to be responsible now. I wonder how many of you have mistakes hidden that will not be known till the end of time. As ye would men to do unto you try to show as much opportunity to others. Thank You.

Outside the USA we are astonished about the 250 million hypocrites in your country. You have now 2,09 million prisoners in your country, if there´s a naked brest on telivision you make censorship laws and send each program one minute later in the air, but in the same time you let your children enjoy movies with thousands of murders each hour. And the most awful is that you sell this shit worldwide. In the same time you destroy countries and support almost each dictator worldwide. So who´s crazy here: the one that enjoys the most beautiful creation of God: love, sex and our body, of the one who enjoys the evil creation of devil; films of murdering and destroying countries.

Long live America: fighting for liberty and freedom of opinion and speech

Ok people, get over it. It was wrong of her to do what she did back in the day but it is different now. Besdies he was right there with her. It takes two to have sex. And they love eachother. Leave them alone. Mind your own business. They are happy and I am sure their kids are too.

What Julia said...It was wrong of MKL to do what she did. But it is in the past now. They are both adults now and married. The media is always going to try and milk a story for as long as they can. Be smart. Ignore the trash news and you will be a happier person. If people do not want to hear whats going on in the world then stay off the internet, turn off the tv, and do not read magazines at the checkout. Peace out people!

May be you will think I'm sick too. No!!! I'm just realistic about that weeding. Those children need a real family and what ever happened, it's happened, nothing can be changed. She already payed for what she's done. And him, he is big and adult now, to choose for his life. I think we should see thing easy and simple. Life is short to make it complicated or fall off judgement or involving God, church, good people and bad people. Let see, she is just a human before to be a teacher. Maybe she was rong and what... a boy who lost his virginity at 13 years old with an adult, it's not a crime it's just wrong. It's only a sexual relationship without any damage. If he didn't feel the need to have a sexual act, and all the pleasure to do it, he will never married today with her. I think it's just bodies attraction, natural and sincere. I'm so happy for the couple and also for children. Remember there is no barriere for love and sex it's just a response to our feeling.
Sorry, if I have different point the view, maybe it's will never happened to me. But also it's possible also.

53 Current Teacher said...

While I would never ever have relations with a student and I don't condone what Mary Kay did, they are currently in love, that's what matters. 50% of marriages end in divorce and look how much these 2 went through and are still together. If you read what her former student said she is a great person. How can you judge someone without knowing them. We don't know how her other children feel and we probably never will unless you meet them. Also, do you realize that the media has caused this conversation to go on for over a year. It's probably time to let it go. Let them live their own lives. It's their business now NOT ours. Many people in this world have done things that society wouldn't like, but it doesn't always make headlines. LET IT GO!!!!!!!!!

Mary Kay is criminally ill. She is a narcissistic self absorbed bimbo, menopause is not too far off for her, she'll start to look "old" hopefully, Villi will leave and try to get some kind of life. Villi and his mother tried to sue the school district while MK was in prison stating he was damaged as a result of being molested by his teacher. Does this sound like a "boy in love"? Now she is out and she is telling him they will be rich if he marries her. (ET paid them $750,000 for the exclusive on their wedding!)To him, it's all about the money and getting "stuff" Its about not having to work delivering Pizzas. This is a kid who is controlled by Mary Kay. She controlled him by telling him they would be friends forever in second grade, she controlled him by blowing him in the school-yard when he was 11, she controlled him by getting pregnant on purpose, twice, she controlled him by promising him money. This kid is only 14 years older than his daughter. He has had absolutely NO CHILDHOOD. He sits around all day watching TV and says he want to "do tatoos....duhhh" He got picked up recently for DUI and he is just generally a "SCREWED UP KID" He won't stay with her for long and if he does, he'll have many affairs and treat her like shit because he is not in love, he is going to want to get out and about sooner or later, he has been manipulated by her since he was a second grader. One day when he thinks more like an adult, he'll resent her and leave, the sooner the better. If Mary Kay isn't a criminal, I don't know who is.

55 A CHILD!!!!! said...

ok check this out, a lady who was 34 years old had sex with a CHILD who was keep in mind was 12 years old. they may claim they love each other but HE WAS A FREAKIN KID. Yes some people out there think she needs god... ok that is fine you have the right to think that. then there those who think she just needs help. This lady took a child of wat was goin to be part of the future and had sex with him all because she couldn't keep her legs shut. think about it. A CHILD. look I am not here on this earth to tell anyone who they should and shouldn't be with. But there is a little thing called comon sence DUH!!!!!! I am not a parent but if I was the mother of a child who had a teacher who was havin a relationship with my child I would most likely go to the school beat the teachers ass weather it be man or women. No adult should put there hands on a child in any way that has to do sex no matter if they think if they are in love or not.

I have 5 sons ages 9-15. I would be devastated if this were to happen in our family. I see things this way...
Mary Kay should not have allowed herself to become attached to Villi; and she should not have allowed Villi to become obsesses with her. She should have stopped thier relationship when she realized it was going too far. However, Villi admittedly persued her love--and obviously he won it! Too--He states that he WAS NOT a victim, but a consensual partner in their relationship.
They were BOTH wrong IN THE BEGINNING.
They both confess their undying love for one another and they have two beautiful children whom the both consider to be a symbol of thier everlasting love.
Both families have suffered through this. Villi's mother acknowledged her son's maturity even at that tender age. Soona was quite the woman to accept responsibilty of the children,to give unconditional love to the girls and to give her blessings and support to her son and whom he choses to love and spend his life with. That is exactly what a mother should do in a predicament like this.
From the beginning, Villi was mature enough to accept full responsibilty for his daughters and the was they were brought into this world; and he is proceeding to make a real family out of what began as a wrong relationship. He became a real man at heart long before he did legally.
MaryKay's exhusband Steve is reaping what he sowed. He did not deserve her. He is a maggot.
Mary Kay's four older children went through quite a bit of trauma having thier wonderful loving mother ripped away from them and being forbidden precious childhood memories with thier mother. Those years could never be replaced.
MaryKay and Villi's young daughters have suffered by not being able to witness forehand how much thier parents really do care for one another and for them.Alot of children start out with two parents and end up with only one. These precious girls have started out with one parent and ended up with two. They deserve at least that much.
MaryKay has done her time for what she has done wrong. But I do not classify it as rape. Only wrongly-timed love. Villi has done time in not being able to spend so many years with the one he loves so. Now they are both free to do as they wish. Thier wish is so obviously to spend thier lives together and persue a happy family.
This is a couple that is PROOF that love will conquer all. Give them the chance to have a healthy happy life with as many children as they decide to have. They deserve it after what they went through in order to be together.
My blessings to Villi and MaryKay Fualaau and all thier children. May they have a long and wonderful marriage and see each other thorugh eternity. They deserve nothing less.

Sounds like a lot of dried up bible-thumping hypocritic old hags posting comments here. I agree with the common sense, reality based OTHERS: Let them live their lives already, and get over it. For being 40-something, Mary still looks GOOOOD!
