Such a selfish girl



So I’m watching the Today Show this morning and they are talking about Dalia and Michael Dippolito.  Dalia is a 26 year old women in Florida who was arrested for trying to hire someone to kill her 38 year old husband Michael.  They have been married for 6 months and the coppers tricked her into thinking her husband had been killed and then videotaped her reaction knowing that he was not dead and they had already safely escorted him from the house.  She is crying and screaming and then they tell her she is busted and she denies everything.  Blah.  Blah.  Blah.

To be clear, I think this is a horrible story.  I cannot even imagine how shocking it must have been for Michael and their families that this has happened.  They appeared to have a wonderful marriage and all was going well.  She seems sweet I guess.  She is quite pretty, has a fabulous body and had a life that looked charmed from the outside.  He is a nice looking guy.  Granted he spent a couple of years in prison for racketeering or some other Soprano type crime, but everyone deserves a second chance and he was living his life and providing for his wife and planning a future with the woman he loves.

What I really want to know is:  Is she kidding me with the killing him part?  There are so many women out there looking for love and happiness and she finds a 38 year old man who is willing to commit and rather than just divorce him she is going to kill him and therefore take another man off the market forever when he could have been recycled?  Could she be more selfish?  I am just floored that she would not be supportive of her fellow women and simply throw him back in for someone else to catch.  As women, if we are not going to watch each other’s back then who will?

I’ll be following the story with mild interest.  I’m sure there will be a made for TV movie on Lifetime and she will do an interview from prison crying and talking about what a misunderstanding it is.  He will go on every news show talking about how shocked he is.  We will see him in Vegas getting his picture taken with a bunch of girls gone wild and he will eventually marry someone else and live happily ever after.  I’m happy for him that he was not killed and I wish him well.  I don’t know what the punishment is if you’re convicted of hiring someone to kill your husband, but whatever it is, they should tack on a couple of years for the crime of attempting to take a perfectly viable man off the market for no good reason.  Such a selfish girl! 

I wish them both well and hope it works out.  To Dalia, while you sit and wait for your fate, think about your selfishness and feel ashamed.  To all the ladies in south Florida, there is now another available man on the market.  Slightly damaged and fragile but available and not afraid of commitment.  Best of luck to everyone, think positive, be grateful that you are alive and always keep the faith.
