Mary Kay Letourneau Wants To Return To Teaching


(PCM) Some of you may not be old enough to remember the case of Mary Kay Letourneau, the sixth grade teacher, who was arrested and charged with raping a 12-year old student back in the mid-90’s.  After being released from prison, Letourneau went on to marry the victim Vili Fualaau and the two are soon going to be celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary. The pair also are the parents of two daughters, Audrey and Georgia, aged 16 and 17.

The couple recently sat down for an interview with Barbara Walters that will air this Friday night on ABC’s “20/20″ during which Letourneau still defends the couples relationship and even admits to wanting very much to get back into teaching again.

Currently, Letourneau works as a legal assistant and reveals that she is making an attempt to have her name removed off of the sex offender registry list. When Letourneau began her affair with Faulaau, she was married with four children at the time. Faulaau was a very gifted drawer at the time that their affair began and Letourneau claims that she began spending time with him to help him hone his skill during the school year. Their relationship took a sexual turn later that summer.

Letourneau’s husband discovered a love letter from Fualaau and notified the authorities which ended up leading to Letourneau’s rape conviction. When asked by Walters if she ever felt “guilty or disgusted” by her relationship with Fualaau, she replied “I love him very much and though why can’t a kiss ever just be a kiss?”

In the interview Faulaau, now 31, revealed that he went through a very dark time following Letourneau’s conviction and suffered from severe depression due to all the scandal. He says “I’m very surprised that I am still alive today.”  He also reveals that he would be “very upset” if his children were to ever have a relationship like his, as he does not support younger children having a relationship with someone older”.

Sounds kind of hypocritical if you ask me, but I still think both Letourneau and Fualaau are fifty shades of cray cray to this day. I certainly wish the best for their children!

Those mysterious numbers, 4-8-15-16-23-42, were part of “Lost’s” plot line since the very beginning of the series and the mystery of just why they were so important was a question that irked fans till the very end.

We know for sure that they won Hurley his lottery fortune and they were the exact sequence of numbers that Desmond had to enter into the computer and push a button in the Hatch exactly over 108 minutes.

No matter what your theory was about the mysterious “Lost” numbers, today is 4-8-15, so be sure at 16:23 (4:23pm) and 42 seconds to pay homage to our long-lost beloved show! Happy Lost Day everyone!  How will you celebrate this once in a century special day?

New Television Shows You Should Be Watching (But Probably Aren’t)

(PCM) We always get incredibly excited during the start of the new year, as this is the time when many of the networks begin rolling out their previews for everything we can expect to grace of TV screens for the coming year.

From the looks of things, 2015 is well on its’ way to becoming another great year for television and there are several new shows that have certainly grabbed our attention.

1. FOX’s Empire 


Wednesdays at 9/8c
After watching an early screener of the premiere we were hooked and this series appears to be gaining steam with each and every following episode.

From Academy Award nominee Lee Daniels, Emmy Award winner Danny Strong, and Brian Grazer, Empire is a drama about a family dynasty, set within a world of music, glamour, danger and power. Featuring music by prolific producer Timbaland, the series stars Terrance Howard and Taraji P. Henson

2. Syfy’s 12 Monkeys 


Fridays at 9/8c

Based upon the highly acclaimed 1995 Bruce Willis film by the same name, 12 Monkeys is an apocalyptic tale about a deadly virus that has been unleashed by a group known as the Army of the 12 Monkeys.

The new series is a gripping and edge of your seat thriller as we follow the journey of James Cole, brilliantly portrayed by actor Aaron Stanford on his quest to both save the world and find himself some sort of redemption for things he has done in his past.

3. ABC’s Marvel’s: Agent Carter


Tuesdays at 8/7c

Despite lackluster ratings, Marvel’s Agent Carter is definitely a show that we find ourselves compelled to tune in and view. The series is set in a very film-noir styled 1946 and explains the origins that we have come to known as S.H.I.E.L.D.

What we love about the series is the way that it is trying in both the Marvel TV and film franchises, as Peggy Carter aka. Agent Carter was once the love interest of Steve Rogers aka. Captain America. Carter believes that Rogers perished in a plane crash and while she was only featured briefly in the Captain America film, the new seven episode series truly gives her a rightful time to shine.

4. FOX’s Backstrom 


Thursdays at 9/8c

Always one of our favorites during his time on “The Office”, actor Rainn Wilson stars as Backstrom, as special-crimes detective who has a special knack for solving mysterious murders.

In the series Backstrom hilariously just about hates everything, which brings a certain level of humor to the tense crime scene situations. We are hoping that Backstrom will get picked up for a second season, as we are sure that over time more details of his backstory and just how he became the way he is will surely be revealed.

5. HBO’s Togetherness


Sundays at 9:30/8:30c

The new HBO comedy from brothers Jay and Mark Duplass is both smart and wickedly funny. The series focuses on the life of a long-time couple with two children who have their world tuned upside down when her sister and his best friend are forced to move in with them as well.

The series shows that the grass is not always greener on the other side of scenario and everyone is hilariously pushed to their limits in a variety of creative ways.
