      lol, she "only" spent $10 million on her boyfriend?  Lottery winners who think like that will lose it all pretty fast.

      Rich people who still treat money like it's valuable will continue to stay rich.  Those who suddenly think they no longer have to worry about the value of money are doomed to lose it.

        Didn't this girl have any parents to teach her what's right and wrong?

        I mean how difficult is it to figure out that North Carolina is not the place for her - with all its heat and humidity?

        Only when she wakes up, and finds herself in a new situation, like some place in California, it'll all start making sense.

        But she refuses to change the present costly and degrading lifestyle and situation. Maybe it's a black thing?

        She had Parents: They made her the way she is!

        A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

          ugh Groppo!!!! You pulled the race card and are suggesting its a "Black" thing?  How many black people do you know who won the Powerball lottery and have gotten themselves in this situation?  People of ALL races have done ridiculous things all for the sake of love.  This situation is sad,  regardless of the race of the interested parties.   We've all said "Oh, I would never do this or that".  Its easy to judge others situations when you are on the surface and don't truly know the full details.

           

          In spite of the fact the guy seems like a bad person because he chose the make money in the 'life', none of us know how he held her down  BEFORE she became rich or what drove him to that path.  One thing is for certain.  The plight of the the black man/woman is one of the most difficult and misunderstood ones out there right now and I am sick of people putting us down without understand those challenges.  AND yes Groppo that is a BLACK thing.

          Did anyone consider this-When she had nothing  before, HE was the only one there for her and stayed with her in spite of her being poor.  Now she has money, she is supposed to dump him?  Did he start dealing AFTER she won the lottery?  I don't know but I suspect not.  If she is loyal to him and stayed with him after she won, I have respect for that, regardless of how much it cost her or if its not in-line with society's mainstream value system. 

           

          Im just giving another side to it.  I would like to think I would have dumped the guy, saved myself millions of dollars and moved on with my life.  But thats my life.  NONE of us know truly why she choose to stay and keep bailing him out.  Please lets not be so quick to call her stupid and judge.  We dont know the whole story, just the one the media choses to cover.

            Now, Marie Holmes & her family can move on. Drop him a post card & call it a day.
            Hope she don't pay that $100,000. That he has to come up with.

            OF COURSE SHE WILL pay the fine No Pity!, Between the two of them they have one brain cell and they lost that one... In the Immortal words of Forest Gump.... STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES...  it is too bad with him gone for a while no more material for the funny pages        Hit With Stick

              This saga will only get worst. Unbeknownst to many, the notorious gangs on the inside will get her residential information from him ransom him and her and the kids lives if she doesn't pay up. She needs to move, not give out her forwarding information, etc. But jail gangs hearing how readily she gives her money out, will with great determination, seek to cash in.

                    but as I originally stated and caught a lot of flak for saying "she'd be broke inside of 3 years"

                    b4 congratulating her first

                    a few things remain obvious :

                    1. its been just a thin hair over a year since this young lady and the thug got lucky
                    2. millions have been spent on bailing this thug out of jail and on lawyers
                    3. and since its also obvious she has an issue with both drugs and the thuggish life as well

                     I wonder which is more important to her ??

                        Smile In bet she`s not going to leave N.C. and I bet she is going to stand by her slime ball man no matter what,why? Because she loves him and she will do anything for him. To her the money doesnt mean anything because when she burns up all her winnings she is still going to love her Hot Sauce.  SOO SAD!

                        You can do anything if you put your mind into it. The sky is the limit! Cool

                          When you love sriracha sauce- nothing else matters. You can put that stuff on & in anything. Soups, burgers,steaks-  you name it. It's that good.
