Tonight, convicted murderer Gerard Baden-Clay’s ex-girlfriend, Toni McHugh, was interviewed on 60 Minutes. When Toni was first interviewed back in July, Elizabeth Stewart couldn’t contain her rage.
Here’s what she had to say…
On Sunday night I got into a fight on Facebook.
“Let’s all remember Toni McHugh is not to blame for the murder of Allison Baden-Clay!!!!!” wrote one of my friends. “I feel sorry for her. She’s been punished enough!”
I saw red and I said as much.
Don’t you DARE ask me or any other woman whose husband has cheated on them to feel ‘sorry’ for the mistress.
Don’t ask me to see her point of view. To hear her side of the story. Don’t ask me to do anything other than despise the woman who actively chose to co-create a web of lies that would impact my kids and me.
Toni McHugh has been punished enough? Please. She’s not a victim here.
Today Toni McHugh still has the chance to get on with her life.
She can kiss and hug her children. And if they’ve shunned her – she has the opportunity over the rest of her life to make up with them.
She can move overseas. Change her name. Change her hair. Find love. Remarry.
If she wants to find anonymity – sure it’ll be hard but there will be ways she can do it.
Let’s all remember that another woman lost her life.
Don’t ask me to feels sorry for Toni McHugh when she pocketed probably $50,000, maybe $100,00 for that interview on Sixty Minutes to tell the world about how she justified having a three year affair with a married man who – at the time – had three little kids under six.
