VIP Legal III: Celebrity in Court—Family Issues

November 9, 2008 5:24 PM

This is the final installment of a three-part blog series addressing the influence of celebrity in legal issues.

In the two previous blogs, I built the case for and against the power and pull of celebrity in legal issues. Since those blogs were posted, O.J. Simpson has been found guilty of kidnapping and robbing two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a casino hotel room. What happens from here is anyone’s guess, which seems to be a theme in the life of O.J.

There is, of course, the usual assortment of other celebrity legal news to which we can apply the power question. Will Lindsay Lohan get her request to keep her deposition off camera at her girlfriend’s upcoming trial? Fortunately Paris Hilton seems to be sufficiently preoccupied with running for “fake president” and hasn't gotten into any legal trouble lately.

Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin

For this, the final installment of “VIP Legal,” let’s shift the focus to some of the most personal and often nasty Hollywood cases to play out in court—family court cases.

In his new book, actor Alec Baldwin accuses the family law system of favoring women over men and states that the system doesn’t work. It’s understandable that he would have strong opinions on the subject as a former litigant in the system in his divorce and child custody cases. But does his opinion count as legitimate, objective proof that the system is broken?

The sole purpose of custody cases is to determine what is in the best interests of the child. It is not to give parents what they feel they are entitled to or to settle all their personal differences. In these big-money cases especially, are parents putting their hatred toward each other first and their child’s best interests second?

People can go back and forth complaining about the legal system, the psychologists and the endless costs involved, but keep in mind that either involved party can say “stop” at any time. It’s hard to complain that the legal system is broken when it’s the litigants who are controlling the lawyers. Anyone in the world can call off their lawyers, celebrities or otherwise. Once that happens, there is no more legal wrangling or maneuvering.

The fact is that in family custody cases, the courts don’t like to get involved unless the parents can’t agree or if there is neglect or abuse. Unfortunately, when the big green monster gets involved—I’m referring to money, not jealousy—parents sometimes forget that their only priority should be to protect their child’s best interests.

As a friend of mine says, “You have to love your child more than you hate each other.” Case closed.

What do you think about the power of celebrity in legal issues? Sound off in the comments below. See you in court!

TESSIE SUE MEAD:

I WATCH YOUR SHOW ALL THE TIME BUT THE ONE ON FRIDAY NOV.28 2008 ABOUT THE LADY THAT WAS DIVORCED AND TOOK HER HUSBAND GUNS. I WAS AFRAID MY HUSBAND WOULD HURT HIS SELF. HE WAS SUPPOSE TO TAKE HIS MEDICINE FOR DEPRESSION. I TOOK ALL HIS GUNS AND BULLETS AND GAVE THEM TO THE POLICE. I DID NOT HAVE TO WORRY.

THANK YOU

Glenda McClendon:

About the show on Nov. 24 2008 and Nov 25,2008 "McClendon Vs Trent" That show was fantastic and Judge Cristina tore that story apart. Way to go Judge Cristina! I hope you win a EMMY for that show.

Glenda, Me being your husband I thought you would stand beside me, and support me dealing with these people after all they have done to other people and my family. This is not rocket science here and even an idiot can fiqure this out! Remember this is a two way street. not your street.
Did I make a big deal over what one of your family members did to me? NO! You refused for us to help him and I think that you think If he got screwed so should Robert? We have the evidence in black and white! And no! Cristina did not pick this apart! It is amazing how shows are edited with all of the facts that we had to present and we have more! Cristina made statements about we accused Christine of murder without the facts. Well, we tried to report it to the police and they refused, so we had to work with what we had! But Cristina had no problem accusing my mom for being the RINGLEADER without the facts! For all interested. No! my mother had nothing to do with the postings on the site. Me and my sister did!

CURIOUS:

The story McClendon vs Trent was good. Judge Perez looked at all the facts McClendon presented and had a professional doctor in court to testify that Trent was not pregnant. I wonder if ROger's wife or other family knew Trent was pregnant and why they were not present in Cristina's court? Roger's sister had given the judge "original records" so she claimed that stated Trent was hooked up on fetal monitoring for 3 hours but the record the judge had from the examing doctor clearly stated that Trent was not pregnant therefore no tests were ordered. I wonder how Roger's sister had the so called REAL records? Where did those come from since Judge Perez had the affidavid from the doctor saying no pregnancy no tests?? Judge Perez is a fair judge and gets to the bottom of things.

HouTXNFan:

In response to Roger McClendons above post and I quote "Remember this is a two way street. not your street" sounds as if it is in reference to his wife's posting. However I saw the show being blogged about and Roger's wife was not present in court so what do you mean by that??

Lisa Lomax:

Hey Bro in law why did you not let my sister know about the so called baby Chris was carrying? She(we)had no idea she was knocked up until R.....was convicted.Why did he not report the missing baby when the so called baby was missing days or weeks before his arrest????Why didn't he report it at the hospital?oh yea his pain medication must have kicked in.By the way who drove her to the hospital? You would think after 20+years of marriage to my sister you would have let her in on the make believe baby after all you was going to be an uncle again.

Well Lisa Lomax, You have been around along time and you know I supported Glenda and her kids until they were grown. Glenda has a problem of controlling everything no matter how small it is. When we have a discussion over a problem. It's her way or the highway. I have NEVER been able to have a two way discussion with her because she is VERY CONTROLING. If she does not get her way she threatens to divorce me and feel that I have been secluded from my family. Ever heard of this before? Because of what I am posting at this time she is theatening to affect by business by posting garbage about me.

HouTXNFan, Did you not read the first post about her not standing beside me and supporting me? And you are wondering why she was not on the show?
Here's your sign! Next?

CURIOUS, Are you following anything? Here's your sign to!

CURIOUS:

I read all post and Well according to your sis in law, your wife was not aware of a so called baby or pregnancy so how could she stand beside you? WHy would you keep your brothers girlfriend or wife's pregnancy from your own wife of how many years 20?? My wife would know if my brothers g/friend were pregnant because I could not hide my happiness of knowing I would soon have a niece or nephew. So why is your family out to get this woman for a missing baby. Since the judge had papers from the doctor to show Trent was not pregnant so are the McClendons obsessed with the Trent lady and her daughter or what??

A LeNorman:

Curious: To answer your question regarding the medical records, Christine Trent went to the hospital on August 23, 2005. She was driven to the hospital by my brother. If you followed the show, I clearly made the statement that the medical bill was sent to the next contact person, which Christine Trent put our mother down as. Because the bill was uncollected, the hospital sent the bill to our mother. Our mother then took the envelpe, unopened, to a Notary, who opened and documented the contents. The envelope is from Tomball Regional Medical Center, date stamped August 1, 2008, mailed from zip code 77375, stamped by Pitney Bowes with a reference number of 0004243605. After the notary opened and documented all the contents, which are also notarized, she then gave the records to me to present in court. I do believe that the doctor may have had Christine Trent confused with another patient, stating that fetal monitoring was not ordered, because there is clearly a bill for such and tests were ordered, or if the doctor and hospital were "fully" aware that she was not pregnant, then wouldn't you say they have a problem about charging people for services not rendered?
As far as whether Roger, or anyone else telling his wife about the pregnancy, that is not for me to say, but one thing I can say is, when I was on the phone with Roger, prior to the show airing, I heard his wife state she saw Christine and she was not pregnant, now, the sister-in-law states that she nor her sister (Glenda) knew Christine was pregnant. (?) And, Robert did say something to the hospital, it is in the chart notes and it was reported to the police, I have the police report that I acquired from the Harris County District Attorney's office. One thing both will probably do, is to question the investigation by the Harris County D.A. I really don't think you have to do that, considering you have a brother in prison for a crime he did not commit. I will not go further on that.
Cristina's Court: There is a bit of a misconception there. Yes, all the evidence was given to her, but she did not "pick it apart". There were/are things in question, and I will not go into it here because I am having an attorney look into the issues. One thing I can say is, the producer from Cristina's Court wrote emails to me agreeing with me regarding discrepancies on the show and apologizing to me.
And, as far as the obsession with the "Trent lady and her daughter", if you looked at the website and noted all the discrepancies in their testimony and on government documents, then you would know, they lied to get Robert convicted. It is answers and justice (what is right) is all that is requested. They should prosecute these two persons (because I hesitate to call them ladies or women, and would much rather call them fiends) for aggravated perjury, which is a 3rd degree felony, and yes, it has been reported many times to the Harris County D.A.

CURIOUS:

As far as a hospital bill being sent to a contact person... a bill does not show the procedures being charged for it will give a dollar amount and due date for the bill but will not include personal medical info on a patient due to HIPPA. And discrepancies from the crininal court had NOTHING to do with the show and a supposed missing baby (that never existed and now you people say the doctor must have lied along with the judge. I pray for you people, i hope everyone else reading this will do the same for you too. Seems as if you all think the UNIVERSE and EVERYONE is against you. Cristina's show was supposed to be originally (according to preview) McClendon was suing Trent for bond money then a twisted tale of lies and deceit over a non existed pregnancy. I have faith in the legal system and as a REAL MAN I do not believe in mistreating women of kids. Your family has gone overboard and it can be seen all over the web and myspace youtube. As I said I will be praying for you people.

CURIOUS:

A LeNorman: First of all I have no siblings so your post is as messed up as the whole thing you all have convinced yourselves happened. Police, Doctors,Attry, and Judges can not all be wrong, I don't see any reason why they would not persue a missing baby other than it being proved THERE WAS NO BABY!!!!!! Did you not listen to the doctor the judge had testify or the letter from the examing doctor...... Well there it is Trent was not pregnant. So discrepancies from your brother's conviction had nothing to do with Cristina's show. May God forgive you people.

lisa lomax:

My sis and I did not know about this so called baby until R was convicted.R said he was a disabled man and they took all his stuff including his teeth.That was the first story when that did not work the baby came in to play because people hate a person that would harm a child so..people you can read between the lines.Everybody can google r.m or r.m or go to the web site and see what lies is on there.I know one thing she was not pregnant as I stated we did not know about the baby until R was convicted we were told we did not need to know she was pregnant now people you tell me does it sound like bs yea I know I almost forgot R was told by so called HCSD to shut up about the missing baby or go back to jail yea ok.If your so called baby is missing it would not matter if they said I will put you in jail they would not shut me up I would go to the tv stations and plea for my baby's safe return not cl or web site. How about y'all your baby is missing what is more important your baby or your freedom?..I'm so happy that judge Cristina tore this case up!!you go judge I thought when you go on your show your ruling is final well in the rm, al world it just started they still believe there is a baby and Cristina's court and HCSD is covering it up.May god have mercy on their sole.

alenorman:

Curious: First thing, I wasn't referring to YOU having a sibling, I was referring to Roger's wife and sister-in-law. Frankly, you are like most, that you do not pay attention, do not have all the facts and are busy running your mouth about things you know nothing about. I have the records, I got them legitimately. ALL medical bills reflect what you are being charged for. The "personal information" was reflected on the medical bills that Christine left in the trailer when she moved out. Did you not catch that in the story? On a medical bill, \maybe you have never seen one, but I have dealt with medical records for years in different capacities. A hospital can not bill you without telling you what they are charging you for.
Also, if people took the attitude you do and just settled for what people tell them, we would have a country full of innocent people in prison.
And, if you did not catch it, the counter was regarding the website, which had to do with the discrepancies, or did you catch that either. So much of the show was edited out, so I guess you don't know it all.
And, since you know so much.. did you see the clinical notes? First thing is, logos are not put on clinical notes, next, tell me how a logo, that was designed in 2007 end up on medical records from 2005? I guess you will yank that out of one of your dark holes.
Let me end by saying, before you start calling on "God" to forgive people, maybe you should look to him, and scripture, for guidance. Stop throwing rocks in your little glass house and consider cleaning up your own backyard before you go traipsing off into someone else's. As far as I am concerned, you should go an apply for a job at the Harris County District Attorney's office, as you have the qualifications (which is not much and make your decisions without knowing the facts or caring to discover them before opening your mouth and inserting foot)and should fit right in. If you will send me a picture, I will be more than happy to post it on the Hall of Shame with the rest of the idiots I have had to deal with throughout this ordeal. From this point on, I choose not to deal with idiots, so I guess that means YOU will not get a further response.
"Here's your sign."

ALeNorman:

All of you on here, excluding Roger of course, do not deserve any further responses. You all have gotten into something you don't know crap about, spend your aimless time judging others. If you would spend some time contributing (like maybe getting a job), then you wouldn't have time to get your noses off in everyone else's business. Hope you all never need any help with anything, because I can guarantee you, I would help a stranger before I would lift a finger to help you. Roger is a far better person me, as I would have rid myself of you vermin years ago.

Robert McClendon:

Let's get one thing clear folks. I am the father
of missing Baby Doe McClendon. To start off with.
I took My ex to the hospital. She was confirmed pregnant by one test. When my ex said there is no
way she could be because her tubes were tied. They did a second test and it was also confirmed!
My brothers family have not been in our lives at
all and my brothers wife has only seen my ex maybe three times in the whole 14 years we were together. The third time she saw my ex, she was about 5 to 6 months pregnant and wearing a smock
that she got from a baby shower from the people across the street. It is obvious that my sister in law wasn't paying attention. Mr. Curious. The police were told immediately after what had happened to me and they were also told about stealing everything else I owned. They were also told about me having to call the police on her two daughters the week before. I called the police on the oldest one the day before they set me up! Back to the baby issue: I had to make my x go to the hospital because she refused to go. I told her she was going with me or I would call an ambulance and they would take her. She decided to go with me. They took her right into the delivery
room. I was in the room when they did the first ultrasound and they said she had fetal matter in her but there was no baby. I was the one that insisted that they do another ultrasound in which they did. Again they said there was fetal matter
in her but no baby. At this time she also had the blue belts on her which was the equipment used for external fetal monitoring and they said they could not find the baby's heartbeat. The doctor told my ex to report to her office immediately and my ex refused. I was repeatedly asking my ex questions about my baby but she refused to answer me and kept skirting around the questions and getting mad at me. Mr. Curious. If you so curious and didn't watch the show then I will be glad to help you with a little that you should have heard already.
The doctor wrote on her clinical notes that quoted
my ex as saying "I haven't felt the baby move in a long time". I heard my ex when she said this to the doctor. My brothers family and his wife did not have any kind of relation with me or my ex at all. My brothers wife did not want my brother any where around my ex because she was jealous of her. Period. I can go into alot more revealing evidence
including recordings to prove my point. I can not even have a conversation with my twin brother without his wife trying to stop it or get in the middle of it. Just to let everyone know. You were
not there when they did this to me. You were not there when my ex was pregnant and you sure was not there the to times I had to make her go to the hospital. We found out my ex has done this to two other men besides me. She has had child welfare called on her for abandoning her youngest daughter in the hospital in California and her oldest which is deceased. She left her in the hospital as well. She has had a history of losing baby's and mine is no exception. Now, FYI There is
a whole lot more to this investigation than you know and we cannot release to the public yet until
this is resolved. Cristinas court film on this
topic, alot was edited out that the public has never seen. First of all. I am not mentally ill.
I am mentally traumatized by what happened to me.
second, I am not missing and I am not incarcerated. I was only in jail for three days.
Third, My mother was not the driving force behind the website. As for the fetal matter that was still in her, it was very likely a retained placenta. Now Mr. Curious, I see that it only took you one day to come to your conclusion. It took my family three years to drag up all the evidence that we have now. That is far more work
than you would have done if you happened to get that job at the DA's office. Someone of your mental capacity should fit right in there.
Here's another sign since you couldn't read the first one or the second one.Now Mr. Curious, You can go continue playing your V-smile game and tomorrow you can get some very good Dick and Jane books at the half price store. Have faith. God will bless you with a skill.

concerned viewer:

First of all for those who have watched the show you will know that the doctor appeared on the show and validated the fact that there was never a baby to consider. Cristina, being the sound voice of reason, made very clear to the so called Mother that there was no baby. It sounds like the is alot of jealousy that this woman FINALLY got out of a totally insane family. As far as Robert is concerned if he is such a caring person why on more than one occasion did he beat his girlfriend, scare her children beyond belief and refuse to allow them to attend school because he did not want them around any people of a skin color other than his own. In the words of Robert himself there are alot of facts that were not discussed on the show and probably to his benefit. Roger and Anita both need to find a life of their own and stop living in the delusional one they have created with the help of their mother. After watching the show I think they could all benefit from major pyschological treatment and medication. Chris if you read this I hope you and your children are well and stay as far away from these people as you can.

Robert McClendon:

I was just warned at 5:45pm on Jan 5th 2009 by my sister in law that she is going to eat and get on here and unload on me for my previous posting.
Well, There is no telling what she will say but I do have recordings of her from the past and I have the one from this evening. So bring it on Sister. I have nothing to hide and you were never in my life or around me and my ex the whole time we were together. It is like I said befor. My sister in law maybe saw me and my ex three times the whole time we were together. I have already heard that someone. (Not mentioning names.) is
going to legally step over the line and implicate
themselves in this mess that my ex has already created for herself. Anyway Sister in law, You have nothing to say about me because you don't know anything about me. Nuff said. Bring the speech on. Since I have the alot of recordings,
they will be posted on a site so all can hear them and I will post the link back into this forum so others can listen to them. Man I love technology!

alenorman:

Concerned Viewer: consider getting a job at the Harris County D.A.'s office, they could use another idiot on their team. And for your information, Robert loved those girls and did not commit the crime that he was convicted of. Get your sign and stand on the corner and have others read it for you, because it is evident that you can't read or comprehend either. You will fit right in at the HCDA's office.
To Roger's wife and family Just remember for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Keep your nose out of people's business. Isn't it bad enough that you crossed Roger so bad that your relationship is falling apart, that is if there is anything left.
I will not be back here. I am tired of reading crap from idiots.
Bye, kiss mine.

concerned viewer:

The more I read the more I am convinced of these people needing mental help. However, you should consider not calling people names and committing slander. There are laws to protect people from being recorded without their knowledge. And just for the record I know Robert (quite well). I knew the 16 yr old girl who had an affair with him after being intoduced to him by the family he claims did not know him that well. Remember the 18 wheeler Robert...she does. You were across the street from the hospital on Beechnut.

Anonymous:

Robert McClendon You never had my permission to record me so HA HA HA First of all you have been diagnosed with a mental illness (per the testimony on Cristina's Court from your brother Roger and sister Anita) I guess you are calling them a liar after all that is the info they gave the Judge Cristina and they were sworn in before the show started and they swore to tell the truth, so I guess they are lying according to you maybe that would be purjured testimony? What do you think? What else is new after all EVERYONE LIES ON POOR ROBERT RIGHT? I have seen Cris alot I have been in the family over half of your life 26 years to be exact or does your mind fail you that bad. I have been to your various apartments and to the Schuettes home on more than one occasion. Dont you remember me picking you up when you were released from a hospital ( I can give more details if you request me to as far as why you needed a ride from a hospital in Tomball)and taking you to your apartment when Chris had to leave you remeber that? I also have been to your apartment when you were sharing cable from the next door neighbor. I talked to the manager at one of the apartments you leased after you and Chris got back together you know the one at 7500 ? I sure do know alot about you and Chris if I never was around. I also saw Sarah sitiing somewhere that you dont want me to mention. As far as being jealous you are such a liar you are the jealous one Do I need to name names and possibly bring up other situations that you were in. I can and oh yes I LOVE TECHNOLOGY I get around on the internet alot more than you know. So want to compare Apples To Apples?

alenorman:

You are a liar! Related to Christine and Paula Trent? Robert NEVER had an affair with a 16 year old girl. And another thing, there was never anything brought up about "skin color" on the show, Christine took her children out of school because SHE stated she did not want her children going to school with black children. (I am not going to say what she really called them.) She told me this HERSELF on the phone years ago.
You are a coward hiding behind an annonymous name because you KNOW that is a lie.
And, evidently there are people who doesn't understand the law and what "aggravated perjury" is. That is when you INTENTIONALLY tell a lie under oath, which I did not. So, again, stupid people,talking crap.
And, in Texas, as long as one person knows the recording is being made, it is not against the law.

concerned viewer:

From one coward to another I do apologize, I just re-read my post and she was 18 so that was a typo.

alenorman:

Whatever, bring your backend here and I'll show you "coward". Typo my butt, you meant to hurt him and you got called on it. At least I don't hide under a ficticious name.

White Hat (Only for Good) ):0):

Robert I would like to know how you have recordings of my family without their consent.? That is illegal. Also how can you have recordings of today’s conversations when you are 60 miles away from where we are now? Are you snooping on us or having your brother do it for you? They are so messed up once they are caught in something their natural instinct is to try to blur the facts of the matter and say everyone is lying on them. Robert according to the Christina's Court episode is a “bipolar paranoid schizophrenic”. Also his twin brother in my opinion has to be secretly recording all of our conversations in this house using his Bluetooth headset to broadcast the conversations to his brother (as Robert stated in the list from the time stamp: 1/5/09 at 3:57PM). He is never off the phone when we are talking and he is never saying anything when we are talking and he is on the phone. By the way secretly recording without the other party’s consent is as I said before illegal and is not admissible evidence. I have personally seen Robert, Chris, Paula, and Sara more then 3 or 4 times. My mom has seen them way more then 3 or 4 times because I was mostly at school or college during the time they came over except for a couple of times as I have stated above. That is another lie that they have told. (His twin brother (as seen on Christina’s court with his sister by his side rather then his wife which he told with me in the room that she could not attend and he did not know anything about the shows taping or name or channel it was on) is no better he cares nothing about our family. He was upset that 2 people from my family called Chris informing her of the website even though they put everything bad they could about her on it. He thought after what he has done to my family and the way he has treated us for so many years that we would pat him on the back as if nothing had happened? And be on his side? YEAH RIGHT! He has gone so far one time as to put a key logger on one of my moms computers to trap all of her passwords/everything she had typed in (My mother caught this before using this and ask me about it so no information was stolen). This proves how "determined" they are about snooping and trying to change the past by covering it up to their advantage. When I asked why so many frivolous lawsuits / court dates were set for Chris I was told that "It will never be over I want her to pay for what she did to my family". Folks you can check on this one for yourself: During a court date against Chris I was told it was put off several times just to "make her pay for what she did to my family and waste her time and gas". In my opinion that points to maniacal people filled with hatred and jealousy. They do not let anything go and in my book at least 1 of them has the requirements of being a "Cyber Stalker". Whoever reads the website that was created to slander Chris with wild accusations like “She had a child and killed it even though there are medical documents that say she was never pregnant signed and dated by a doctor” and believes that malarkey is just as crazy in my opinion.

Anonymous:

First of all. It is legal to record your own phone calls. It is also legal to carry a recorder
with you. I guess you never looked on my belt before. Second. You made some very serious accusations. Now that your mad because we got tired of your crap, you will say anything. I know exactly who you are.Get that straight! You are not bullying Roger. Remember that! I don't lay down like he does! You have never been in any of my apartments nor did you drive me home from the hospital. You just keep on smoking your pot and eating your Xanax and Vicodin. You know nothing about the internet much less technology. The only reason you know it is 7500 is because my sister in law referred me to that place. You never went there once! And what ever your talking about the youngest daughter. You know nothing about anything since you were never there. My ex already made up a wild story just to make me look bad. And last but not least. I have my medical records that show I am getting counseling for the trauma that was cased by setting me up. At least
I am not taking anti depressants like someone I know. As for knowing me for 26 years, That is it but you were never around and I was never around except to see Roger. For another thing. A man that treated you right and made sure you had everything. You have treated him like garbage.
That I can prove toooooooo! Along with plenty of witnesses. Grow up! Now you have tangled yourself up in it!

Sorry Robert McClendon posting my name is GLENDA McCLENDON I did not purposely post anoAnonymous

Robert McClendon:

I forgot to post my name on the last one. At least I am not hiding like you are. But I know who you are and that is all that matters.

My feet smell like your breath:

(Quote from above) "Remember that! I don't lay down like he does! You have never been in any of my apartments nor did you drive me home from the hospital.".........Makes you think why a person that was probabily accused of abusing their spouse and was aquitted of the charges or probation why they would say they "were not going to lay down like he does?" Sounds to me like theres alot of hostility towards women there.... Maybe Judge Christina needs to revisit this case only not on a "missing baby" report but possibly as spousal abuse????? I don't know but according to the show it looked like Ms Trent was being railroaded. I leave only one question: Why was the details of the show said to be Roger sueing Christine over $500 bail money spiral into a unsolved case of murder? HOW!?!?!

Glenda McClendon:

Anita take your own advice you were nowhere around when your brother was going through his GO 12 OR 13 year relationship so why dont you keep your nose out of it? Alot of people can read that does not mean that you know the facts. You just sprouted back up 2 years ago. Dont worry about our marriage it has outlasted any you have been in so I think we are capable of making our decisions without your help. As far as that goes your other brother had a long lasting relationship also. Seems like your ex's rid theirselves of their vermin and it was several of your ex's. No more postings from me Have a wonderful life.

Robert McClendon:

Okay. I was in a hurry because of your garbage.
So now I know who made the posting. Last time you
called your daughter and sister and told them to call my ex about the website. You did this because
Roger was to busy taking care of my stuff instead of your brother. You never once helped Roger with the website. You have hammered Roger into the ground for years and made a work horse of him. He has no life and he cannot talk on the phone. HIS OWN PHONE! With out you yelling at him to get off of it. To many of his customers and friends have heard the way you treat him and talk to him.
Now you are making up stories to try to make me look bad. I never did anything to you. You get mad because I come over to see my own brother!
The fact is, is your just plain MEAN! You have absolutely no friends and it is not hard to tell why. The one thing about me that you do know is that I hav never put up with your crap like Roger has. There was to many times I could not tell you
anything because you would take it out on Roger.
You called me today and was asking me on how to leave Roger? Huh! Figure that one out yourself!
You did it before and the only reason you returned is because you could not find anyone else that you could work into the ground like Roger. To many days that man missed work because you drove him crazy to the point to were he was sick! You were the ones that called your daughter
and sister and told them to call Chris. The behavior of those two on the show only proves the apple does not fall to far from the tree. Roger is a very tolerating man like me and to many people know us to be that way. Roger did not do
what you wanted him to do so you took it out on me to hurt my brother since you know we are so close. You had no business sticking your nose in
this business. You kept messing with Roger saying you were going to call my Ex and when Roger got tired of it. He told you to just do it! It was a figure of speech and of course he did not mean it and I know that. So what did you say? "Well I'll
just do that!" So you got on the phone and called your daughter and sister and got them to do it because you would not do it yourself. I have the recording of that night when Roger was talking to me and I had him on speaker phone. Between me and Roger, It is a shame that you always have to carry a recorder around on your belt to protect yourself. What kinda life is that? Then you tell
Roger he is not a good provider and you have never help him but once in your life and that did not last long. Roger is just a throw away and if something happened to him tomorrow, You would leave him. You have threatened to leave him so many time that he is numb and has no feeling anymore. I can never understand how he has handled it for so long. No one in this family has ever done anything wrong to you but you know Roger is the weak link to us and it hurts us.
If anyone in this family is so bad. Why did you not do something about it along time ago? Another
thing. Why does Roger have to pay all the bills when it is obvious that someone else in that family has a job that pays over $50.000 dollars a year. Roger has taken care of all those kids. Even
when they had jobs and never asked for a dime from them. The other thing is his grandchildren.
He loves those babies to no end. He is like me.
He raised several children like I did that were not his and love them. Now this is the way we both get payed back! Once we get them to be old enough and self sufficient, then we are not needed anymore and it is time to retire the work horse to the pasture.

Roger McClendon:

My feet smell like your breath, If I knew the show was going to be edited the way it was I would have never did it. Cristina's court called me about the original suite filed and I explained to them that they may not be interested because of it being so complicated with one of the issues being the missing baby. But all of a sudden they were REAL INTERESTED! Thats how it started. As far as Christine being railroaded? It would be good if you could talk to here previous ex's.
I even went as far as tracking down her ex mother in law from 15 years ago and she had plenty to say about her pattern and things she has done to her family. I highly recomend that you visit Robert's site and read the evidence yourself at:
http://americaswrongfullyconvicted.com/robert_mcclendon.htm
One word of advice: In your travels that you happen to meet these people RRRUUUNNN!

Glenda McClendon:

Well Robert how did you raise children recieving disability which is pennies monthly? You had all that money so where are you living now? Also what about your biological children, did you raise and support them? Dont think so. Your brother is not to weak of a link because he started a website about you trying to get you out of trouble Did you help him do that NO! So go beddy bye NO More Postings from me

My feet smell like your breath:

I just went to that website, read over it and I have to agree with White Hat "Whoever reads the website that has wild accusations and believes that malarkey is just as crazy in my opinion." This would go for the site and here is another for the one above from Roger" I even went as far as tracking down her ex mother in law from 15 years ago and she had plenty to say about her pattern and things she has done to her family." I would again have to agree with White Hat sounds like either a "Cyber stalker" (depending on what was done to find the woman after 15 years) or a stalker (again depending on what was done to find the woman after 15 years). The website is filled with a ton of grammatical and punctuation errors, as well as run on sentences. Spell check anyone??? I have to leave this riveting forum due to my high priority job beckoning me for attention. Adu adu parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night till it be morrow.

Roger McClendon:

My feet smell like your breath, You stated:
(I just went to your website?) Thats funny. I checked my site tracker and noticed that you did not follow the link I provided you. YOU WERE NOT LOGGED. Here's your sign!

My feet smell like your breath:

Lets just say I happen know my way around the net! Its part of my job ;) This is my last posting for the day / week as I will be working remotly due to a snow storm approaching at the speed of light.

lisa lomax:

Hey R..... just for the record I hear what you are trying to say.I got the info off your" weakest link"(your words not mine)the creator of the web site for you his twin brother who is being railroaded for a crime he did not do.You now the receipt from small claims court for yg C address was on there ever heard of reverse look up?yea I know you know it well.If the recordings have a date and time on it you will know I called in the early stages of this dysfunctional site before the so called missing baby story came to the site.Don't believe it ask C. or for a copy of the recordings.God bless.

Robert McClendon:

This is for everyone to know. Everyone that has posted on this site against me and my family are
all of the family members of sister in law. Hey White hat, You do not know anything. You know nothing about the court cases nor do you know how or why any of them were rescheduled. Roger did not put any key stroke logger on any machine and he would not attempt such thing since you would be the first one to look for one since this is your occupation and you still live in the same house. No one has contributed an damn thing to that house except the oldest girl. When mommy gets upset at Roger (Which is almost all the time.) Then everyone else in that family with the exception of the oldest girl acts like a bunch of sharks in a feeding frenzy and attacks Roger also.
I have never seem any man buy such an expensive truck and is to scared to drive the thing and has mommy drive him back in forth to work everyday.
As for the legality of gaining recordings, you no
nothing about the law or what is admissible in a so called court of law. We can test that if you please. My feet smell like your breath? Using a name like that only proves your mental sharpness.
It is surprising given your age. Every one of you are mad because Roger did not jump for you like you wanted him to. As for me not laying down like Roger. Just to make my point clear which you interpreted it the wrong way do to your short
mental capacities, I mean that I would have left
all of you along time ago! and not looked back.
Roger is a very unique man to take care of so many people (Pay all the bills and everything else.)
and they not help financially. It is funny ho you can have a job that pays over $50.000 a year and
have nothing but the best electronic equipment all over your room. I am also talking about that
movie screen sized television set that takes up over half of the wall space in that room. Roger
is not even allowed to use the big television set that is in the front living room. He has to go to his own room to watch television. When the bills get behind and no one helps him with the bills,
He has to go hock his Christmas presents just to pay so all of you all can live. To show another side of you all's attempt to make me look bad.
You create a young girl of 16 years old and say I had an affair with her to make me look bad. The reason for doing this is obvious since fooling with a 16 year old is flirting with jail and is a moral no no. Now she changes it to 18 years old and says it was a typo. Typo? Don't think so!
If it is legal to fool with an 18 year old then Glenda already knows that is legal so why bring up a fabricated story like that? This all stated because Roger was spending all of his time trying to fix what my ex did to me and he did not have the time to take care of my sister in laws brother who I was told was innocent of the crime that he was charged and convicted of. If my sister in law was so concerned about her brother, then why did she not do what Roger has done for me? She has all the time in the world to do that since she does not work and spends all her time on ebay buying gold jewelry. Is it hmmmm, let me see. "Do I buy gold
or do I look for a way to help my brother?" Mean
while in the past, none of you would ever eat what Roger bought at the store. You had to have tons of pizza ordered because that is all you wanted and then made Roger pay for it. Any time
you all got mad at Roger, everyone of you would gang up on him. I have something for you to listen to but I will transcribe it for you. This is from my sister in law. Quote " I gave Roger hell and I told my children to give him hell to
keep him in line." Him is "Roger." As for anyone seeing my ex. No one did but about three times the whole time I was togther with her. Non of any of you ever knew anything of my relationship with
my ex. Been diagnosed with paranoia? Let me explain. Any of you would be paranoid if you were
falsely arrested and convicted with only perjured testimony that was very obvious. Then set up again
while your at home and in your pajamas. One thing I have to say. When I was growing up a young man,
I was either married or had plenty of girlfriends
instead of staying at home playing video games.
I am so glad I was that way instead of hmmmm. huh?
you know. huh anyway. I am sure someone gets what I mean. These days you never know what someone might think. Now since it is only this family on this forum and this is the only place you all have spread your poison because you want to behave like a bunch of immature people. I would sure pay
attention to all of the liable that you all have stated here. The other thing is that every one of you were on my side until Roger did not do what you wanted him to do and that was to help get him off and prove his innocence. I would think that you would be spending your time doing that instead
of getting on here and slamming me. I never did anything to any of you and you had no reason to come after me. Remember. You all started posting against me first. If you have something to say to me, then say it to my face and don't hide behind fictitious names or mommy's skirt. Reminds me of a little dog that will pretend to attack you as long as the owner is there to protect him. Hey White hat. If you would like to talk about my issues that you know nothing about. If you do know something that I don't know?
Do you have the nerve to stand in front of me and tell me? I don't think you do! One thing that you have to remember is that you would not be were you are now if it wasn't for what Roger has done for all of you. No other man would have taken you kids, (much less put up with the way you treated him.) and paid your way through school. Yes that is right! Your momma might have handed over the money but Roger is the one that made it and provided it so you could make it through life.
Here is the other thing. All of you park and take up all the parking places and make Roger park way don on the end. Why is that? If I was in Rogers shoes all these years, I will tell you one thing.
If I am working and bringing home the bacon. I will park anywhere I like first and then you all would take what is left over. I will talk on any land line phone in the house I waned to and when I wanted to. I will watch any TV in the house I wanted and If I did not own that TV and I owned the house, I would move that TV out of my house and put another in the place of where the old one set. There is nothing wrong in people compromising
but you all do not do things that way. You tell Roger to jump and how high. Not me KID! Sis in law wants to talk about me bad? Huh! Well I remember when she allowed the youngest daughter
around the age of 14 or 15 to allow a boyfriend to move in and sleep with her over on Fondren and Roger was given no choice in the matter what so ever. That boy even pulled a rifle on Roger in his own home.
What kind of example is that? You people know nothing of my life and I left it that way because
I know you all's nature. Nuff said!

White Hat (Only for Good) ):0):

R*bt that is right about him being the only one to pay for the bills. That is because he has referred to himself as "head of household" "bread winner". After those statements and the abusive behavior he has put my family through over the years such as drinking so much alcohol in one sitting that he actually passed out on the floor. Yes I have expensive "toys" to play with that is because I pay for them I did not leave because I knew that when I left their marriage was over. Plus you cannot just move out of anywhere when you are having a house being built it takes time (you would not know that you have never had one built) For your information I make way over 50k a year you can ask your brother as to my spending habits. The big screen in the living room that you are referring to is mine that I paid for and gave to my mother because she wanted a bigger TV. This proves that you know nothing about my family to quote you from above: "No one has contributed a damn thing to that house except the oldest girl" YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW HER NAME?!? SHE IS NOT A GIRL SHE IS A WOMAN BUT YET YOU TALK ABOUT HER AS IF YOU KNOW HER??? And I have an extremely limited numbered truck with very low miles and that’s the way I keep it. I gladly pay her for her time and pay for the gas not to mention I have to do all the maintenance to the car. I have done everything from new tires, oil changes brakes, rotors, shocks, bushings, windshield, tint, power window rebuilds, headlights, intake manifold replacement, throttle body, electrical, you name it. Because your brother my mom's husband does not want to lift a finger to help anyone here. I have to come up with the money to cover the emergency funds. I have paid for everything he has not paid for crap for the vehicles, cable, food, etc. As a matter of fact my mother bought him his equipment to do his job and I bought him a Dodge van which I did not ask for a single penny back. I did so because he needed one to work. He did not even ask me for it he was trying to get car loans from mom and pop car dealers. I personally went to the bank and bought one off of ebay and we drove together to get it. So don’t tell me I don’t do sh*t because the last time I saw pictures of you, you were so far gone on methadone and pain killers you passed out upside down in a chair and burnt your clothes, chair, and floor. You are still living with your mother so don’t even go there with me. As for "you don’t know anything" it seems to me that I have several degrees hanging on my wall that I earned as well as my other family members. What do you have on your wall other then a calendar and a post it note? Now if you want to discuss this further I suggest you come over and we discuss this face to face at the kitchen table like men so we don’t take over Christina's blog with our petty childish name calling as you frequently display. Or are you man enough to crawl out from behind your keyboard and talk to a real man??

Samantha Taggart:

What exactly does this have to do with Cristina's Alec Baldwin blog? Maybe you guys should get a chat room and let people actually comment on these blogs. I don't know where this conversation came from but it has nothing to do with the topic at hand. Jeez.

Curious about you Cristina:

I viewed your show on the case between the dog loving socialite and the hair dresser. I do not watch your show and viewed it that day. I now know why I do not watch your show. You put the hairdresser on display for having confidence in her abilities, and blamed her for being concerned about this womans money. She was concerned about that womans money she owed her. But you said nothing about a woman willing to pay enormous amounts of money on a dog, but not pay her bill. Did I miss something, or were you too star gazed at the people this lady knew event by the pictures she presented to you? If anyone was being arrogant it was this woman. A persons time and talent is worth every dime, no matter WHO it is. If they sit in the chair, they pay. If I had to run a client down for money when I see them feeding a DOG prime rib, I would be angry too. But you would not know anything about that. It seems once people arrive, they forget the struggle of others. Remember to respect the working class, that make the so called upper class look good. Which was a strecth for that lady! WONT see you in court!

Robert McClendon:

Okay! You see where this got you? You got mad at Roger because he would not cooperate with everything You and the children have put him through and posting all all this garbage up here about me that you know is not true. You say you
made a typo in one of your postings? Huh! I don't think so! Everytime I posted something in my defense against all these lies ya'll are telling. You knew you could not get to me, so you took it out on Roger. Following him around with camcoerders two feet from his face and constantly yelling at him. Even while he was sleeping! How Childish! You called and had the police show up to throw him out of his house just because he had to go and get an attorney to protect himself. (You forgot, that home is community property.) So to keep his sanity and look out for his safety, He moved out and left you! He is so scared of you because he thinks you are going to set him up just like my Ex did to me. One is about using the police as a tool because things were not going your way. I don't know what it is about some women using the police as a tool just because it gives an advantage to a bad womens situation. That is sad because not all women are that way and it is people like you that give good women a bad name. Good women have to suffer being stereotyped as 911 callers because of what other bad women do.
You got so mad that you even said you were going to call my PO and tell her a bunch of things just so you would get me into trouble. Yes! I have the proof and I did tell my PO everything that you said you were going to do to me. You accused him of posting something on our page that came from an honest person that could plainly see how I got screwed over by my ex. This is what it got you,
HE LEFT ALL OF YOU BECAUSE HE IS SCARED OF ALL OF YOU. Plain and simple! HE DOES NOT WANT TO FEEL THAT HE IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT VICTIM OF A SETUP. All it takes in this county is one or more complainants to say you did something, then you are off to jail. Everyone of these postings were made by you and your children and none of you have ever been in my life. It is sorry what happened to your brother but you did not have to treat him that way because he didn't help you fast enough. It surprises me that he would help at all since your brother was the one that stole all of his working equipment after he broke into Rogers van. He stole everything and I remember you jumping on him because he could not work and he was also charged with having to pay back the money for the stolen equipment. I remember when Roger found one piece of his equipment in a pawnshop just buy mere accident.
Again! This is why you are alone now and this is why he left you. He had enough of the mental abuse by you and your children. Get it!? He is scared of all of you. One last thing. You were the one to tell him to get out of his own home
and called the police on him. Isn't it funny how the officer told you to leave him alone, and that was his home too. After all, he was the one to pay all the bills when no one else would help him.

Roger McClendon:

Our family problems started long before the show on Cristina's court show McClendon vs Trent. And I would like to let the Trent clan know this IS NOT going to be over until JUSTICE IS DONE! These two women have caused allot of problems and chaos for my family. Part of this is probably my fault for me being relentless in my quest for justice and putting my family aside. So I will apologize to my wife and family for the misunderstanding. From now on I will try not to drag my family through the mud persuing this matter when I am with them. But let it be known. When I'm alone or when the sun goes down I will still chase this matter FOREVER!

I want to include the stepkids to the posting above

Glenda McClendon:

This will be my final post on Cristinas Court website... I would like it to be known that I did file for a divorce due to the comments posted about myself and my family by my husband Roger and jealous family of his. I have decided to give Roger another chance because we have been married for over 20 years and our personal life belongs to us not the McClendon's. I refuse to let the negative, lieing, jealous comments those people posted affect me and my family's life with Roger. We have had our share of ups and downs but we have the mentality to solve whatever comes our way without interference. I married Roger not his so called family. Believe me our marriage has lasted longer than any of those peoples relationships, we could give them lessons. I see how envious people would not want Roger happy after all most of the marriages in the McClendon family last less than 10 years. Roger and I are 20+ and counting. My children are respectable and productive members of society, might I add college educated and they paid their way through college, No McClendon handed them anything. Roger is the lucky one out of the McClendon family after all he's been married one time to the same person for 20 years and counting.

ella brown:

why do you favor to help men more than women?

Christie T:

Roger I feel sorry for you to not know where your baby is. You have proof of this women doing things like droping kids off left and right. And I sence watched the show and heard somethings. I have went online and did a little bit of looking. I have seen and read all of the stuff. I think that she did kill the baby. She didn't want another baby she wanted to do something else. Hopefully she will get soon what she deserves and will get locked up for life. Any mom that thinks it is ok for he 17 year old daughter to screw a married man and bust up his marrage should never have kids to begain with.

I feal for you Roger and will pray for you and your family.......
Christie T

wanting to know:

where is the website that "tells all" about this case? i am curious about the one mentioned on tv

Glenda McClendon:

In reply to Christie T : I am Roger's wife and the story was NOT about "Roger's" baby it was about his brother and the woman was his brothers live in girlfriend.
