Now that Hurricane Sandy has everyone used to watching daytime TV, let’s get pumped for tomorrow’s Ricki Lake Show. In the new episode, airing at 11 a.m. on Fox 5, Mildred Muhammad, ex-wife of D.C. sniper John Allen Muhammad, will reveal that her husband was a really bad guy.
You might have already realized that after he organized a killing spree around the Washington area, but there are some new details, including one about the time he abducted their children from her home. But the strangest thing Muhammad talks about, based on the three clips I’ve seen, is how people in her community blamed her for the Washington shootings. Under their logic, if she hadn’t left Muhammad, he never would have gone on his rampage.
“If I would have stayed on the West Coast, then the people on the East Coast would still be alive,” Muhammad recalls people telling her. “I need to repay law enforcement for every dime they spent to capture, try, and execute him.”
