They all seemed to know about the pot smoking.
The husband sounded so stupid. He admits that Diane smoked pot on occasion. But then stated emphatically that there was no way she smoked that weekend. Well, how did THC end up in her system dipshit?
I had to laugh at the sister outside the office smoking a cigarette and stating "nobody in my family knows I smoke...". The irony and cluelessness of that statement boggles my mind. She herself has a "secret addiction" yet she refuses to believe that Diane did as well?
When those two idiots were trying to say that Diane's tooth ache was so bad she could have mistakenly took up a vodka bottle thinking it was water, I wanted someone to say, even if that were true...vodka tastes NOTHING like water. There is nothing to explain her downing the equivalent of 10 shots of vodka in that short amount of time other than she's an alcoholic who thought nothing of the safety of the children in her care or of the general public.
Denial doesn't even begin to describe what those two people are in. But you know what, its not surprising. They KNEW she was self-medicating with booze and weed for months, if not years, and I believe they feel guilty that they looked the other way. And that's understandable. What I don't get is how the husband could turn around and sue his brother-in-law (who lost all his children in this tragedy btw) for having a faulty car or whatever the excuse was. And I believe he also sued the victims' families of the other car, saying THEY were driving recklessly. The unmitigated gall.
A part of me thinks it really was an accident and she probably did blackout (though I feel funny using the term "accident" in these cases, because its a deliberate action to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated), but another part of me thinks she was suicidal or had some kind of psychotic break.
What about husband? Did he get married to a new wife (yet)?
I don't know. But my heart hurts for Bryan. The sister said that Daniel never wanted children. He only agreed to have kids with Diane, with the understanding that she would basically be doing all the work. I fear Daniel is resentful and feels "stuck" with Bryan. That, combined with the way she says he acts when Bryan exhibits any emotion about what happened, and how she had to fight just to get Bryan into therapy...I just don't see that kid having a decent childhood. Its so sad.
