*stands up on soap box*
ok, so, I know this is kind of an old topic, AND this is my first message, but I just couldn't pass up not replying to this. First of all, I am not ashamed to admit that I am a fan of Criss's. I also know that pretty much all of what Criss's [soon to be ex]wife's lawyer says is NOT true. I have been a loyal watcher of Mindfreak since the first season and Joann was in EVERY and if not ever almost all of the episodes during the first season. They always had her opinion on the stunts, she did not seem, even in the least...ignored. Saying that she was ignored was like saying dogs don't bark. I also have had the pleasure of seeing Criss perform live, and I have met him. And he was nothing but nice to me and all the other fans around. Also, guess who was with him??? Joann! [this was not long after the show aired in 05] she looked pretty well dressed and taken care of to me, with her fancy sunglasses and louis vuitton purse, or whatever the edited bag it was she had with her...
Now I'm not saying that I don't think that he didn't ever do any thing wrong. But geez people, the guy is only human and even if he did do any of the things Joann is claiming, divorcen thing to be going through, even worse if its in the public eye is not a fun thing to have to deal with. Imagine how you would feel if your personal buisness was splattered all over the tabloids...And I don't care what ya'll say, I'm 19 and have been performing card tricks, and magic tricks since I was 8. Criss is a good magician who knows how to engage his audience in whatever he is doing. Thats all, ya'll can chew me out if ya'll want. I don't care. I just had to say something.
*steps down off soapbox*
Thank you...and good night.
I won't chew you out for liking Criss Angel. We are all entitled to our opinions. What rubs people/magicians wrong is when Criss Angel fans impose their opinion of him on everyone else and get hostile or resort to personal attacks when others disagree. Or when Angel fans pretend to know that he doesnâ€™t use TV Magic and other swindles to enhance his appearance and talent. Everyone pretty much knows my opinion about the guy.
I have worked with attorneys for over 10 years in a previous career and known many a lot longer. I can guarantee that anything that comes from Joann Sarantakosâ€™ Attorneys mouth is lies. Divorce attorneys are the worst. They love to stir the pot and are driven purely by greed. If Joann was so mistreated in the relationship, why did she not just leave sooner? Well, there is that greed thing againâ€¦
