You're right Megan, someone took your her husband, so she had every right to go out and take someone else's. It was probably easier just to take the one her good friend had.
Regarding the woman to whom you gave $10,000 and a shopping spree: Ellen, you are so generous and such a model of kindness. Your impulse to help people is really noble and I wish more people were like you. Sometimes when someone is repeatedly a force for good, they are called to higher and greater good. I hope you will hear me out. The woman you helped isn't going through a rough patch. She isn't a victim of cir***stance. She is a con artist. A fraud. A thief. And you are her most recent victim. I'm sorry your generosity has been taken advantage of and I know you won't let it embitter you when you see that this has opened a door for greater good. I want to tell you about another of Katie's victims. Let's call her Grace. For three years she pretended to be a friend to Grace, a good and generous woman. She told Grace she needed help because of her desperate cir***stances and Grace helped her. Generously. She gave her money when she had little to spare, she gave her assistance, she took care of those three children you had on your show, she prayed for her, she saw to it that things got fixed in her home when they needed fixing. Grace was loyal and generous to her friend. Katie repaid her by seducing her husband and destroying her family. The woman you helped isn't the victim of cir***stance. She wasn't crying on your show because she was happy. She said to her children, 'this is good'. But that was just another lie. It wasn't good. It was karma blowing her cover and exposing her for all to see and she knew it. Know this. In Katie's hometown there is a single mother of six who is wondering if this is the month her children's home is foreclosed upon. Grace is wondering if her mesmerized husband will pay the child support this month so her newborn will have diapers or if he'll choose to pay for Katie's kids to have something instead. She is struggling to help her very confused children understand marriage, friendship, and the difference between right and wrong. And now she's also wondering how someone like this ends up on your show having gifts and money and adulation showered upon her. Grace will have to struggle to explain to her children how this very good thing happened to this very bad woman. Ellen, I think you have the opportunity to do even greater good than you originally thought and that you have been called to something bigger. I can't wait to see what you make of this. May you be blessed.
