As Colombian, I must say we had the romantic idea of watching husband and wife hug and kiss not leaving each other's hand, but rather found a cold and distant woman. Then, we learned she had fallen in love with one of the americans in the jungle. She didn't even say anything to her then husband, but asked him immediately to send her forty thousand dollars they had to her account, which he did. After that, she filed for divorce. Then, other captives reported she was self-centered, manipulative, and arrogant. She deceived us all, plus she never told us that she had double citizenship and nevertheless ran for president. The straw that hit the camel's back, was to show her ingratitude with our beloved president and army who had rescued her in a mytical deed, by asking the government for money to be reimbursed for her ordeal -money coming out of us taxpayers who had prayed unendlessly for her freedom-. That did it. We don't buy her anymore. Sorry. Keith Stansell, one of the american kidnapped was right in his appreciation about her.

I hope her ex-husband gets what he is trying to get. She seems to be a real BITCH.
