I was at work and I thought this was the day that I could come home, because I had a little extra time at lunch, so I did. And I came home and I thought, ‘Why do I smell bacon in the house? And why is there music blaring in my house. There should be nobody home’ And so I went downstairs in the den and there was Vanessa [with her boyfriend] on the pullout couch…I didn’t think, because all I could do was call my husband because he’s the clear thinker. And I thought, ‘either I’m going to kill her or I’m going to get her father here to help.'
