OK I just watched. They appear 10 minutes to the end of the show. The husband says he bought the ticket and then the wife buts in and says "at her request". They said the Ellen Show contacted their attorney about appearing on the show. They also say they are being bombarded by people writing them letters asking for money and sending them their bills to pay.

     Thank You jacintasc for the update. No surprise about being bombarded by beggars. The groups of professional beggars have more experience then new winners. The winners cannot tell who is telling the truth and who is not. I hope that they are learning the word "NO" and recycling their mail.

     Lottery Post members and staff are learning lessons from previous winners.

        They, and their attorney, get paid more $$$ to appear on TV.  They must be very gullible people to be so easily manipulated into the spotlight by their attorney.

          They are just plain and simple people from a very small town. My parents in law live in Munford and I was married there too. They already have more then enough money. Time to slow down and make some changes. The whole Townsend family is crooked as the day is long as least that is what I have always heard.

              If you Google John and Lisa Robinson and then click on video (at the top) there is a clip of John Robinson buying the four Powerball tickets.

              I also saw the clip of them on the Ellen show. Basically the same story they told on the Today Show.

                Meanwhile the other two winners are still in hiding.  Smart move.

                  Hopefully their lawyer is giving them better advice than the one the Robinsons hired.

                  It takes time to set up trusts or LLC's. 

                  After they got their ducks in a row, they will claim their shares of the jackpot.

                     I would not be surprised if one of the other two winners hire The Lottery Lawyer, Jason Kurland.  He is experienced with past lottery winners. His largest winner won $336 million.

                          They want to be "stars" and famous. Very dangerous.

                            I am sure he is paid hourly rates with perhaps a retainer for some future "work.". 10% for acting as a glorified pr agent would be considered unreasonable under the rules of professional conduct.

                              More like $20 million if that's true ,which I doubt. They got around $200 mill after taxes.
