I finally made it to the doc yesterday. I'm now fully supplied with germ killing drugs and I'm sure I'll be just fine in a couple days. I kid you not, he said I have pneumonia. I don't have pneumonia, but he tells people that every time they get a bad cough. Didn't I just say that in my post yesterday? Geez …… He's a hypochondriac doctor. Really.
An overwhelming number of you said you wanted to hear continual updates on Joe the Bigamist. I'm starting to think there will be no end of material from this guy unless he eventually lands in jail. (Or if someone kills him for screwing around with their wife.) If you are a new reader you can go back and read here (Part I) and here (Part II) to get caught up.
A reader asked me who is giving me my Joe information. One of my friends has a close working/friendship relationship with Joe. I've promised to keep certain details vague or undisclosed when I write in exchange for Joe stories. Joe apparently doesn't mind as long as I keep him unidentifiable.
Joe must think there are a lot of other bigamist's out there?
I had no sooner finished writing Joe the Bigamist, Part II when I received more information about Joe. I confronted my friend and said, "Are you sure Joe isn't just a pathological liar and making all of these stories up?" I mean, it's entertaining either way, but I don't want to pass Joe's escapades on as truth if they're not. My friend told me he used to think Joe was full of "tall tales" but over the time he's known Joe he's seen "a lot of facts to back up Joe's stories."
Some of you have commented that Joe's life is like a soap opera. I'm not a soap watcher, but I'm sure you're right. In fact, as I've mentioned before the producer of The Real Housewives of Orange County lives in Money Town. I've suggested the idea of Mr. Producer televising Joe's escapades. Mr. Producer and I have some mutual friends and I believe my suggestion will be passed on. I don't know if it will result in anything, however.
I've lived in California my entire life. I can honestly say the extremely wealthy just are not like the rest of us. Rules? Rules are for other people. Boundaries? Well, they don't apply either. Societal norms that most of us take for granted, are often not a part of the thought process of the exceptionally wealthy. Oh, I know there are some very nice billionaires out there. I've just never met a single one of them.
It's also my personal opinion that Joe has a sexual addiction. They very term implies an inability to discontinue behavior despite the negative consequences. I think the definition pretty much sums up Joe, but I'm not a psychiatrist.
Joe likes to talk a lot. Joe particularly likes to talk about himself and his "situation." Joe sometimes calls my friend two or three times a day just to talk about himself.
Here's the latest. Joe will not be prosecuted for bigamy because his second marriage was found not to be legal. (There's a plethora of lawyers involved in Joes' life right now.) He had a prenuptial agreement drawn up and went through with a marriage ceremony that Wife #2 thought was legal, but it wasn't.
Wife #2 is coming after Joe for palimony (which is like alimony but awarded in long term relationships which are not marriages). Wife #1 is divorcing Joe. Joe is adamant about acquiring custody of the dogs he shared with Wife #1. It's nice to know Joe is capable of forming a real attachment to something, isn't it?
Mistress is pregnant and she doesn't know if the child is Joe's or her husband's. (Her husband is Angry Celebrity, remember?) I imagine she'll have to get a DNA test to establish who the father of her unborn child is. If Joe is the father, I would think she'll be set for life financially with the money Joe will have to pay to support her child in a lifestyle similar to his own. Isn't that how it works? I'm guessing here, but it seems like that would be the case.
I may end up hearing a lot of Jim the Player stories too. He sounds just as bad as Joe. In Joe the Bigamist, Part II I told you I knew of a woman swapping story between the two brothers. I didn't share the story because quite honestly, I didn't think you'd even believe it. I have a hard time believing a lot of this and I'm getting the information from a long time, trusted, friend.
Nonetheless, the majority of you said you wanted to hear the story so here it is. Jim the Player apparently had an affair with his pastor's wife. Yes, he's Mr. Class himself. It's nice to know Joe and Jim are so involved in their local church community. Do you remember how Joe's Wife #1 and Wife #2 found out about each other at church? I'm not sure if Joe and Jim go to the same church, but based on what I've heard of the story, I don't believe so. In any case, Jim found Pastor's Wife to be very sexually adventurous and nicknamed her "The Kink-Monster." (Such a warm term of endearment!)
Jim the Player decided his brother "had to" experience The Kink-Monster for himself. She was at a church retreat in the woods. Jim set up a meeting with her. She snuck out to meet him one night but Joe the Bigamist met her instead of Jim the Player. She, apparently, never knew the difference.
I've asked my friend to find out more about Joe and Jim's family. Did they grow up wealthy? I'm thinking they must have. Do they have other siblings? Are the siblings as narcissistic as the twins? What was their family life like when they were young? Are either of the brothers in therapy for sexual addiction? Or for that matter, just therapy? I'll let you know when I hear more.
