In your opinion, is the reason the DA had the WM3 admit guilt to avoid a lawsuit against the state? Can they sue now?

Can the WM3 ever clear their names now that they've made this deal?

I don't believe the new "russell was abusive" story. Seems like Taylor's PR machine trying to muster up some sympathy for their client.

Lame Harvey - The Conrad Murray case would not be affected by Nancy Grace. It's a lawyers ploy and not a very good one.

is the reason the state asked for the guilty plea in exchange for letting them out so that it would avoid having to pay restitution for keeping them in prison for 18 years? I know most states, if an inmate is exonerated after a prison sentence, has a standard it pays for each day the inmate was incarcirated.

First off this is Non-Reality TV, The Ex-wives of Hollywood, there is no proof. It could have been just bad plastic surgery. Where are the cops. Sounds like Bravo PR stunt backfired. Way too many people to keep this quiet.

Hmmm... do you think Bravo threatened Russell with leaking the footage, and he hung himself?

Eh... whatever happens, I hope Bravo at least waits a decent amount of time to let the children grieve. Show the family some respect.

Agreed. The show should have a bit of an educational side to it if they do choose to air it. Sort of a PSA.

Harvey--thoughts...I probably don't think that BRAVO is legally liable for taking them out of the series, but I think that ethically, they should have done it.
