Desiree has never been good at dealing with stress. She falls apart; increases her narcotic usage; withdraws from the world; takes it out on those around – namely her children, since they can’t really fight back; and guilts whoever her boyfriend is at the moment into “fixing it” for her.
And, it is apparent at this point that Desiree has lost it! She’s past the point of freaking out. Her whole delusional universe is collapsing on her. She’s spending almost all her time in her bedroom, trying to stay as high as possible, she’s punishing her children for no apparent reason, she’s crying, incessantly, to James Pendleton (her fiancé) about how nothing is working for her, her life is so hard, and it’s all Patrick’s fault.
James To The Rescue?
Yesterday, Patrick received a number of emails from some “anonymous” fool. The first email attempted to reason with Patrick that he had proven his points about Desiree and that he should do the dignified thing: he should take this website down. Patrick was pretty certain the “anonymous” idiot was none other than good ol’ James. A few messages were sent back and forth, then Patrick decided to post them messages on this website (see The Significance of the Bad Stuff… post).
But what really gave it away was when Patrick’s mobile phone rang and the caller ID showed “Desiree Capuano”. Patrick figured it was GR calling. But when he answered, the party on the other end asked “Is this Patrick Fox?”. Patrick responded, “Yes”. The other party said “I’m Batman!” and hung up. The impotent imbecile then started sending messages using the user name “Batman”. The fucking moron didn’t even block the caller ID before calling! The moron would even call back again, leaving two voice mails – this time blocking the caller ID. For those who are curious how much of a twit this James Pendleton really is, here are the two messages he left:
The Upcoming Family Court Hearings
In just 4 short days, on March 25, Desiree, Patrick, and their son (who we’ll call GR) are scheduled to speak with the family court mediators regarding whether GR should remain with Desiree or return to Patrick. And on March 28, they’re to appear in the family court to address Patrick’s recent request for GR to be allowed to decide for himself who he will live with (Request for Order, 2015-11-20 ); Desiree’s response, alleging Patrick threatened to kill her, and a bunch of other ridiculous allegations that have nothing to do with GR’s well-being or best interests (Responsive Declaration, 2016-01-11 ); and Patrick’s reply to Desiree’s insane response, proving everything Desiree alleged is bullshit (Reply to Response, 2016-02-22 ).
Now, Desiree doesn’t really give a flying fuck about GR, his well-being, or who he lives with. But what she does care about is 1) maintaining the delusional fantasy world she lives in; and 2) “beating” Patrick.
It’s wonderfully difficult to keep convincing yourself that your children love you and your life is perfect, when your child says, to the family court, that he doesn’t want anything to do with you; that he’s afraid to tell that to the court because if Desiree finds out she’s going to punish him; and that all he’s wanted for the past 3 years is to get away from her and return to his father. Desiree doesn’t really care about that reality – she just doesn’t want to hear those words come from GR’s mouth, and she definitely doesn’t want everyone else to hear it. But she knows Patrick is going to record everything and it’s all going to appear on this website. And that, my friends, is freaking her out!
And, as for “beating” Patrick, well, Desiree just doesn’t seem to understand that custody of GR is about what’s best for GR – not about pissing off the other parent. If you read through Desiree’s emails on this site, you will notice a pattern: she always refers to GR as though he’s a possession. She speaks in terms of “sending him” for visits, and “returning him” to her. Parents like Desiree want to “have children” – they’re not interested in “raising children”. So, in Desiree’s fucked up perception of reality, a court order requiring GR to remain in her custody is a “win” against Patrick, regardless of how it actually affects GR’s relationship with her. Desiree doesn’t care about if GR wants to be with her, she only cares about if GR has to be with her. So, if the court were to allow GR to choose where he will live, or if the court ordered Desiree to return GR to Patrick’s custody, well that would be one hell of a huge “defeat” in her mind.
And as for allowing GR to choose where he will live: Desiree has often said that she just wants GR to be happy, and that if GR ever chose to return to Patrick then she’d respect that. However, Desiree has repeatedly sought court orders prohibiting all contact between GR and Patrick, and orders granting her sole legal and physical custody of GR. When she was unable to get that, she had Patrick deported (by filing false allegations against him with DHS). And, Desiree has always know that, given the choice, GR would choose to return to Patrick’s care. So she simply doesn’t allow him to have that choice.
Desiree’s Plans Backfiring
When Desiree contacted the CBC a couple of months ago, she expected the story would only be published in the Canadian news media. She expected she would be portrayed as a helpless victim and Patrick would be portrayed as a heartless, obsessed, sociopath. She expected everybody would believe everything she said, without question. She expected the bad publicity would push the Canadian prosecutor to reopen the criminal harassment case against Patrick, Patrick would get arrested and be unable to attend the upcoming hearing and, as a benefit for James, the Canadian authorities would take down this website.
But, as always, her plan backfired on her. In the beginning, the story ran as she expected; she got huge sympathy from thousands of people; the story got picked up in the US and even right there in Tucson, near where she lives, and everywhere she went people showed her support. But then, that asshole, Patrick, posted proof that she was full of shit; the US media started portraying her as a lying, manipulative cunt; people started turning on her; the supportive emails turned into hate mail. Instead of strangers in public showing support, they began snickering behind her back, giving her the stink-eye. The Canadian authorities didn’t take down the website, they didn’t arrest Patrick, they didn’t re-evaluate the criminal harassment complaint. The hearing would proceed and GR would have his opportunity to tell the court how he really felt. The mediator would testify about what GR said to her and that testimony would appear on this website. The whole world would know that Desiree was a shitty mother, who would rather sit alone in her room, getting high than to raise her children.
Attempts to Prevent GR from Speaking with the Mediator
For a while, Desiree intended to appear for the mediation by telephone. That way, she could be sitting next to GR while he was interviewed so that he wouldn’t be able to say anything negative about her. She even figured she could listen on the other line – that way there would be no way he would say anything bad, or that he didn’t want to live with her. What she didn’t realize is that children are always interviewed in person.
She then thought she would just pretend she believed the mediation was only for her and Patrick. That GR was not supposed to be interviewed as well. She would claim the mediation department never informed her of GR’s interview. However, Patrick made sure the Pima County Sheriff served the notice of GR’s in-person interview on her.
So, for a week Desiree was scrambling to figure out a way to prevent GR from being able to tell the court what he really wants. And it’s not looking good. Most likely, she’ll just not bring him for the mediation interview, then she’ll claim, in court, that she didn’t know she had to bring him. She’ll expect the court to give her another break – as it seems to always do. She’s hoping to just be able to delay the inevitable a while longer.
And, in the end, she has failed to prevent the upcoming mediation and hearing from occurring. She’s in straight up panic mode! She’s reverted to the old tactics of having her boyfriend send emails and calling Patrick to try to intimidate him. But it’s all just the same old shit from her.
