I agree, making an apology, seeing where she went wrong would help because she had no right to take their lives. On November 28, 1989, just after Thanksgiving, I drove to the Las Colinas Detention Facility in Santee, near San Diego, to talk to Elisabeth “Betty” Broderick for the first time. I just thought maybe your dream had you thinking that if he did that in real life, you would be furious about it, like Broderick was, but you for sure would not do what she did. Betty used rage to stay connected to her ex. The story of this tragedy haunted me for weeks, but Dan’s treatment of Betty prior to the murders haunted me even more. It was simple’? They have no reason to deny my parole.”, But San Diego Deputy District Attorney Richard Sachs disagrees, saying that the parole board made the correct decision. Eventually the truth could no longer be hidden and he admitted he’d been having an affair with Linda all along. Two of her four children don’t speak to her and one has written a book against her and testified against her in court. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, Press J to jump to the feed. Isn’t it time we take a good look at our courts and our system of divorce?” While many dismissed Betty’s claim that she was a victim of emotional battery, she had tapped a rich vein of discontent. Less than two years after Betty became a household name, Hollywood embraced a new kind of female avenger. No way! I’d grown up in a house where my mother’s rage was frequently stifled, until it boiled over. Nope. It was later told about the news clippings & the guards feeding her information to piss her off and get this reaction. Although, like you said, what she did was horrible and inexcusable. It’s a good read and you won’t be able to put it down. After months of talking to Betty almost weekly, I’d grown weary of her self-justifications. Eventually I agreed to be a consultant for a TV movie. By using our Services or clicking I agree, you agree to our use of cookies. He was not a nice man.

Her trial did not get a lot of main stream news coverage except snippets making her out to be the villain. ‘I would love for them to find husbands to provide for them. Was she manipulative and did she show self-centered behaviors? Ok, whew, good to know. Despite everything I always felt a little sorry for her. Dan seemed cold-hearted and emotionless from the get-go, almost psychopathic. but his behavior was even worse in some ways and he was good at covering it up, something she was not. Also I could care less who or what he gets involved with. On a Saturday in November, 1989, Betty Broderick went shopping. She told me she’d intended to engage Dan in a conversation. Idk why I don’t remember the boyfriend. These cookies will be stored in your browser only with your consent. Betty seemed like the crazier one, but of course she was the one who wound up murdering someone — just like your mom tried to murder all of you. The book will be damn good if I can just finish it…. The CA prison system won’t let her out, though she’s served her sentence because she’s not remorseful enough. Throughout most of their marriage, my dad was frequently emotionally abusive to my mother. He started an affair with an attractive young woman in his office named Linda Kolkena, who he promoted to his personal assistant. Dan Broderick was making roughly $2 million annually, and this was in 1988-era dollars, at the time of the divorce. Meredith Baxter, who portrayed Betty, was nominated for an Emmy. S he took her gun, entered her ex-husband’s house, tiptoed into the darkened bedroom where he slept with his new young wife, and shot them both dead. In the meantime, Linda Kolkena had at least one boyfriend of her own on the side. The prosecutor grills Baxter-as-Betty: “Do you remember telling Amy Wallace from the L.A. Times that ‘There was no pain. When Betty was in her 40s, she had gained some weight (as many women do around that age) and Dan began to show how little he valued his wife and their marriage, now that she was no longer young and beautiful. Finding him and his new wife, Linda, in bed, she opened fire. I think Betty Broderick had built her life around her husband, his approval and her role as perfect wife and mother was essential, co-dependent to a narcissist who took delight and justified his abuse of her to leave her for another woman. Hi Lucky Lauren, I just sent you an email with a link to what we talked about yesterday morning, before you posted this article about the Brodericks. Our wedding was perfect, and Betty helped pay for it. “Today,” he said, waving a shotgun in her face, “will be your last goddamned day on this earth.”. I can’t believe you would have thought that!
