The weather is great. After all, it's November and today it's in the 70s.
There are a lot of nice people here and of course, this is the home of my alma mater, Johnson C. Smith University.
On the flip side, though--this city is full of crazy women! Rielle Hunter, John Edwards's baby mama and the woman who brought down his political career, calls Charlotte home. And media outlets are reporting that the woman who contributed to CIA director David Petraeus's resignation this week is from the Queen City.
According to the Charlotte Observer, Paula Broadwell is a counterintelligence expert and was embedded (doesn't that just sound so wrong now) with Petreaus in 2006 while he was leading the troops in Afghanistan. She wrote a book about the general.
Both are married. Both are wrong -- because we know in situations like this the woman is always judged harshly. However, if the Washington Post is right, Broadwell deserves it.
According to the paper, she threatened a female friend of Petraeus via email. Really? We're still sending email threats to the other other woman.
The collapse of the dazzling career of CIA Director David H. Petraeus was triggered when a woman with whom he was having an affair sent threatening e-mails to another woman close to him, according to three senior law enforcement officials with knowledge of the episode.Like most misguided women, Broadwell is mad at the wrong person. First of all, she should be mad at herself for cheating on her husband and secondly, she needs to mad at Petraeus for bringing more women into their extramarital affair (please read my sarcasm here).
The recipient of the e-mails was so frightened that she went to the FBI for protection and help tracking down the sender, according to the officials. The FBI investigation traced the threats to Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and a Petraeus biographer, and uncovered explicit e-mails between Broadwell and Petraeus, the officials said.
I've heard stories about crazy Charlotte broads. Let me tell you a few.
- A friend of mine told me she was cyber stalked and real time stalked by a woman who said she had been her (ex) boyfriend's side chick for 23 years. The woman sent messages to her Facebook inbox, called her out on Twitter and came to her residence to put a note on her car. In the 23 years that this woman was the side chick, the man in question had gotten married, divorced, dated other people and this broad was excited about giving him oral sex and mad at the other woman. Hmm, something in the water does not compute.
- A former Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Officer lost her job because she faked harassment from another woman who was messing with the same man she was messing with. This officer even went to jail.
- Another friend of mine found out her ex was cheating and had someone call him and pretend she was from the health department. The caller told the guy he needed to get tested for herpes because a woman who had claimed to have sex with him had the disease.
