Mary Kay Letourneau Becomes Grandmother, Is Still Clueless


mary kay letourneau grandmotherMary Kay Letourneau, the woman who spent seven years in prison for having sex with her 13-year-old student, Vili Fualaau, has another reason to celebrate -- her son (who is one year younger than Fualaau, incidentally) just gave her a granddaughter, Ava. I say "another reason" because it appears this criminal, who has created a life with her victim, has everything she ever wanted, and no regrets.

Letourneau (48) and Fualaau (27) are married, and have two children together. Their 12- and 13-year-old daughters have four half-siblings that Letourneau left for seven years while she was behind bars for having sex with a minor. Yet, by her own account, Mary Kay Letourneau (now Fualaau) has mended those relationships and is a happy mom and grandmother.

A perfect example of the lack of shame that is so prevalent today, ladies and gentlemen!

In this 12-minute segment on TODAY, Letourneau comes across as fulfilled, a woman who justifies her criminal behavior because she was in love. What starts as a celebratory segment (Mary Kay is a grandma!) barely acknowledges the elephant in the room -- the lady was put in jail for having sex with a child. The fact that that child is now her husband is actually more disturbing instead of less.

After the tiniest bit of prodding and an awkward conversation about what the couple have in common, Letourneau finally concedes that it probably would have been better if she and Fualaau waited, but clearly she doesn't regret her relationship with her 13-year-old student. In fact, she shows a complete lack of understanding of the damage she caused by saying how it would be different if her own 13-year-old daughter took up with a teacher. Umm, not really. Statutory rape is statutory rape.

While a birth of a child should always be a happy occasion, I can't help but feel creeped out by Grandma Letourneau and her dismissive attitude towards her criminal actions. Let's hope her children, and grandchild, have a better grasp on reality and make better choices.

What do you think about Mary Kay's happy life?

Her life is as disturbing to me now as it was when this whole disaster started so many years ago.

oooh, this one will doubtless bring a load of comments so let me start it off. If a man who was her age had gotten a 12 year old girl pregnant, copped a plea that gave him a very short sentence, got out and proceeded to impregnate the girl again the girls parents would doubtless be ready to castrate the man at best, kill him at worst. Her babbling excuse of there being "physiological" differences proves that she has some serious issues and that she doesn't really believe her own lies.

Deeeelusional! She's not even aware that she's seen as a registered sex-offender circus freak (j/s) with a prison record. Why do they give airtime to this couple?

Yep not much of a difference in my mind had Mary Kay been a man and her pupil a girl. I would still have been completely disgusted.

Who. Cares.

I can't wait for the day an older man approaches one of their daughters. Maybe then they will understand why we have laws to protect children. But i think they see themselves as an exception to the rule.

Good Lord! What ever next? Giving airtime to child molesters who are obviously completely warped and in totally denial? What kind of message does this send to our kids whom we are desperately trying to protect from these creeps?

I just watched that video, she didn't complete one single sentence.  Not one.  She just kept spewing out like half phrases and incomplete thoughts. She is dumber then a brick. And the end omg, when he said "well people are going to believe what they believe" when asked what do they say when people say their relationship is wrong.

Most awkward interview ever. Whatever Mary Kay was teaching him when he was 13 (besides the obvious) it sure wasn't how complete a sentence. All they said was um, uh mmm...They're both nuts. I wonder what the guy will have to say when his 13 year old daughter comes home with her teacher and announces she is pregnant.
