That's what he said!
Not one to make light of stories, eh? So uptight...
Child abuse is always a tough subject to make funny about. It's possible, but you'd better be pretty damn funny.
I'm loving watching Rocket roast on this... He issues an assinine denial, claiming that he spent time with her because she was "a family friend" and that it was strictly platonic (I recall spending tons of time with 15 year old female "friends of the family" when I was in my late twenties... you know giving them money for stuff, buying them clothes... that's normal... right?... Ya.. okey dokey). Too bad for our HOF hero, McCready came out last night and says she can't refute a single thing in the Daily News' story. Life hasn't been to kind to the now not so young and sweet Mindy and I'd be shocked if she didn't cash in on this big time (very much at poor Roidger's expense). I'm thinking she'lll be on Oprah and Larry King next week unless Clemens cuts her a nice fat cheque (which will probably happen). Either way the damage has been done, and what little credibility this jerk had left is gone.
What goes around comes right back around... yes indeed.
Abuse? It was consensual loving. Nothing hard to take about that - i mean...
I'm gonna go.
Yup. I smell a book deal. Oprah, Larry King, Dr. Phil...
Probably has some interesting Rocket memorabilia too...
Well, there is smoke now. But before I pass judgement, I want some more evidence. You've got a woman here who apparently is at rock bottom emotionally and finacially, has a bad history, and this is a potential cash cow for her. I would question her motives. It may very well have been the truth, but I would still want this to play out.
Worst case scenario for Clemens though. If his wife dumps him, she is likely to have dirt on him. A scorned woman will destroy you piece by piece.
I would give this story about a 90% chance of truth though. You have what was a hot woman, a long relationship, some payments ( possibly hush money ), and she's not denying the story. There is really only one possibility here to make it untrue, and that is personal financial gain or blackmail of Mindy.
