Get the guy from California to bond him out and hook him up with the crazy Anthony lady and they would really have a story for Jerry, Orpha and the new media.

Man, I'm a good looking, well off, decent guy and I can't find ONE woman to marry. Maybe it's because this guy married them all.

Wow Dude, you are one ugly porker. How on Earth did you get all these gals to sleep with you. Obama's silver tongue, John Holmes's tool or just a bag of money? Two other women refused to provide their names to the newspaper or verify their claims that Hare had wooed them, saying they were embarrassed. I'd be embarrassed to if anyone new I went out with that slug. What some people are able and capable of doing is unbelievable. I sure he plans to knock a few more up when he gets out. This guy will be a big hit in the can. Mr. Stud Muffin.

Thanks Captain; Best joke of the day so far;-0.

I often wonder where are all the decent men, but this verifies there aren't many any more. And there are just too many needy women, willing to marry men when they know that something,(or someone) just isn't right. You can't tell me there weren't some red flags about this sleezbag.

Well, if you're willing to settle for fat, homely, desperate, lonely, stupid women, you could easily find a wife. Look at this guy Hare. He's a fat creep. He stalks pathetic women who gladly trade their self-respect for an obvious con-artist and a roll in the hay. I have NO sympathy for these women.

Ouch! I was going to make a comment about we haven't seen the women he was married to, and a good looking, decent, well off guy probably wouldn't be interested in them anyway, but you beat me to it! I would have phrased it a little more nicely though - lol :)

I totally agree. If you know someone well enough to know you want to marry them, I'm sure there were at least a few red flags to raise suspicions. But like you said, there are some women who are needy or for some other reason just can't be alone and accept the first dude that comes along.

What is in the Florida Air??--Joe Matarazzo, Windermere Custom Homes, Ron Bressan Realty was married to a gorgeous woman for over 40 years and was running around with Carol Evans, who was also married at the time, Traci Williamson and Maryanne Kowalewski, and others at the same time. Basically, while married, he carried on a commonlaw marriage with Carol Evans, until his wife brought down the hatchet, then he ran like a coward and abandoned his wife and children.

This crap about Joe Matarazzo shows up in a lot of Topix posts but these posts are the only place. I think you are a former girlfriend or disgruntled client and just want to slam the guy. How childish. If you have a problem with him talk to him, don't run around the internet spewing garbage that you have no proof of.

Read the NY times article about him. He helped the state put his own mother away for killing his two older brothers when they were babies. His father, who had 4 wives and has 18 children, now sits in jail in Florida for murdering his girlfriend. I guess the rotten apple really doesn't fall far from the tree. Oh and don't feel too sorry for wife #3...she's the one that bailed him out, knowing full well that one of the conditions of his bail was that he was not allowed any contact with any of the wives.

Look, the mug shot isn't exactly a modeling session, people. He looks pretty average to me.

Why blame the women? That's pathetic. Like we should have uterine contractions when sneaky, lying, cheaters try to woo us....we'd be crampin' all the time!

I'VE got an idea. How 'bout these men who think they're stallions get gelded for their crimes? No more play time for poppy...

I thought about phrasing it more nicely. But the fact is that despite the MANY examples, and usually even against the advice and concerns of their family and friends, these women plunge into whirlwind 'romances' and throw caution to the wind.
An Orlando area woman was murdered last week and the suspect, an illegal immigrant who mowed lawns in the neighborhood, has fled. Her daughters and even her roommate know little to nothing about this man and finding this murdering slug is going to be difficult, if ever. Some women are so desperate for companionship that they take up with men who are in this country illegally; they know NOTHING about their history and end up being tragic victims.

Stupid young women are marrying middle eastern immigrants on temporary visas. Big surprise when their citizenship isn't automatically granted and these guys take the kids and return to their homeland. This has been going on for decades and American women don't learn from other's experiences. It's always sad, but it's not like it's unpredictable.

There's a song in this story. Something along the lines of having to share my love with 5 other women. A real tear-jerker.

I couldn't get past the face to find out how he was hung. He must of portrayed that he was well off financially or some women are just desparate.
