I’ll be interviewed on Bonnie Kaye’s Straight Wives talk show on Sunday, Oct. 8 at 8 pm ET. Bonnie counsels straight women who have discovered, to their shock, that their husbands are engaging in gay sex.

People tend to think that the men who do this are gay, but haven’t come to terms with their sexuality. Sometimes that’s the case, but often the husbands are sociopaths who will have sex with anyone.

I’ve done Bonnie’s show before, and the discussion tends to be wide-ranging. So listen in! And if you have a question, feel free to call in!

Woman locked disabled sister in a closet for 7 years

Candy Lawson (Sjiawassee County Sheriff’s Office)

Candy Lawson, 46, of Corunna, Michigan, was convicted last week of keeping her disabled sister, who was deaf and had cognitive impairments, locked up in a 4 foot by 8 foot closet for seven years.

A contractor doing work on Lawson’s home called the police. Diana Churchill, 42, weighed only 70 pounds when she was rescued. Lawson had previously been investigated, but not charged, in the malnutrition death of her disabled brother in 2009.

Lawson was found guilty of vulnerable adult abuse and embezzlement. She took her sister’s Social Security disability benefits.

Women allegedly betrayed by philandering Air Force colonel petition for official investigation – you can help!

Military officers are held to a higher standard of behavior than the general public. Military law criminalizes “conduct unbecoming of an officer” such as adultery — that is, if the law is enforced.

One woman thought she was in a genuine romantic relationship with a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard — also a doctor — until three years later when she learned that she was just one of many. She says the lieutenant colonel used “military assignments” as excuses to juggle the women. She says he even rotated the women at Air National Guard events, and none of his fellow officers called him out.

The sway sociopaths hold over their “minions” is hard to fathom

Husband Liar Sociopath

Every week, a chapter of my book, “Husband, Liar, Sociopath: How He Lied, Why I Fell For It & The Painful Lessons Learned” (available via Amazon.com, just click on the title or book cover) will be published here on Lovefraud. To read prior chapters, please see the links at the bottom of the post.

Chapter 52B:  The Tsunami Pounds Ashore

In spite of the adultery and Paul’s clear manipulation in getting me to move to Utah, which was clear to anyone who had two eyes and a brain, Paul’s family rallied around him. I’m sure the money he lavished on them did not hurt, and he likely reframed everything, finally revealing the “truth” about me. He had endured me long enough. Surely, they wanted him to finally be happy.

Bikers protect kids who must testify against abusers

Guardians of the Children is a biker organization that protects victims of child abuse. When a child must testify agains an abuser in court, the bikers escort the child to the courthouse, keep the child surrounded, and sit in the courtroom during the testimony. Their actions make the children feel protected.

This organization is based in San Antonio, Texas, and has chapters in 20 states. I would like to see them everywhere.

Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter, and his psychopathic father

Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter.

Here’s the big question after the horrible massacre in Las Vegas: Why?

Sunday night, Stephen Paddock, from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino, started shooting at the 22,000 people attending a country music concert. From his elevation, and with automatic weapons, it was like shooting fish in a barrel. A total of 59 people were killed and more than 500 wounded. It is the worst mass shooting in recent American history.

Stephen Paddock, 64, is the son of Benjamin Hoskins Paddock who robbed two banks between 1959 and 1960. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 1961 — but escaped in 1968.

What I learned about trauma from my dog

Bo in my office. His tail is blurry because he is wagging it.

My husband and I adopted a five-year-old rescue dog, Bo, in July of 2016. I wrote about him when we brought him home, which you can read here:

My new dog offers a lesson in letting go, on Lovefraud.com.

Bo has been living us for over a year now, and he is an absolute joy. When I’m working, Bo usually spends the day snoozing on his cushion on the floor beside me. His internal clock tells him when it’s time for his walk, and he gets all excited — he loves going out. Who is he going to meet this time? Bo wants to approach every human, dog and even an occasional cat that happens to be along his route.

Andrew MacCormack, 29, of Revere, Massachusetts, has been charged in the murder of his wife, Vanessa. She suffered “blunt trauma to her face, slash and stab wounds on her neck, signs of manual strangulation and suffocation,” according to the Suffolk County assistant district attorney.

Authorities believe the couple’s one-year-old daughter was home at the time of the murder. They say MacCormack  took the baby with him when he went to buy cocaine.

Vanessa had recently texted to her husband that she was going to sell their house and file for divorce. MacCormack replied that he would not sign anything to sell the house or get divorced.

An empowered approach with personality disordered co-workers

Editor’s note: The following article was posted in our Forum by the Lovefraud reader “Bluemosaic.” It is such a helpful and insightful article that I want everyone to see it, so I am elevating it to a blog post as well.

I have experienced longterm bullying and toxic behavior from a co-worker. I have recently given my two weeks notice to my employer and the peaceful road ahead is in sight. I am going to give a little background, for readers to better understand the vantage point from which I speak.

I will begin with a couple quotes:
