Cat got your tongue? No comments about how 7 year old Corrina doesn't need her mom who is off with Jenny and Vince? I don't see how she can look at that sweet face and those big brown eyes and leave for weeks on end.

I assume that comment is directed toward me? Are you saying that her children with Gary didn't have sweet faces, so it was ok for her to go on the road when they were young? Hmmm...seems like an odd comment to make.

Again, Amy travels a lot less than she used to...so I'm still not sure what you're getting at. Do you like Corrina more than her other kids?

Huh?? rehab? arrests? come on Gary...

I don't know about wife beater, although I tend to believe someone who abuses drugs or alcohol is most likely emotionally abusive as an extension of their substance abuse issue.

Wow! ML was right. She told me there were a lot of anti-Amy people from TX on here...shocking.
Metro Nicki - first I'd say this...I was married for over a decade to 2 men; well, 1 man with 2 personalities. The decision to divorce is rarely a quick one. On the contrary, it's usually beaten to death to the point where when you finally leave, it's really been over for a while. You just want to move forward at that point. Amy also clearly wanted to have another child...at 39, she didn't have time to wait.
As a fan whose followed her music, believe me, she slowed down, big time. I now usually have to drive for hours or hop on a plane to see her perform. She doesn't tour at all like she used to.
As far as mixing finances with Vince, well that would be a bad idea. I would never mix finances with my husband. Quite simply he's not the father of my child, and I'm not the mother of his children. For tax and inheritances purposes, mixing finances in a 2nd marriage when there are children from the first is just a really bad idea.(I'm also really curious where you would have read something like that....I'm pretty sure neither Amy or Vince, or their lawyers or accountants would have spoken about it.)
Jenny was with them for whole christmas tour, she was one of the back up singers,(her and kim keyes were amazing by the way.)
Sarah is 16, as is my son...believe me, 16 yr olds don't get upset when the parents take off for a 3 weeks. On the contrary, they are in heaven! Also, this is pretty normal for those kids..
It appears you may be superimposing what happened in your marriage to the situation here. I suppose I'm old fashioned, but I don't understand the mentality of letting nannies raise your children. Maybe they fare just fine. Since Amy waited so long to have that fourth child, delivering around 40 and knowing there would be no more, I was surprised when she was so willing to put her career first. I noticed on her blogs when Corrina was around, that Amy was still fixated on whatever her task was at hand...arranging flowers, giving the back story on a painting and even when she hugs her onstage, it seems very scripted, quick and then Corrina departs. It's totally none of my business how she raises or raised any of her children. The notion that you can have a baby at 40 and glue two shattered families together was a bitter pill to swallow also. In other situations I have seen such as this, the older kids play the game until they leave home and then they go on about their adult lives and eventually the kids (when they reach adulthood) are not that close. Okay, I'm sure this will get picked apart. The point is that Vince gave Amy the option of being taken care of $$ by him and she said h*ll to the no. Her career is still going strong and his seems to be on the decline since in the past he didn't have his wife Janis with him and women could fantasize about a guy who acted single. Now that his wife is in tow and sometimes one or both of his daughters and he has aged & isn't as easy on the eyes, what's left?
This isn't just me. On the reviews, Amy gets the warmer applause and welcome. He will always be seen as the fox in the henhouse.

I see someone who just wants to argue. As best I remember, Gary and Amy toured with their kids and I remember seeing pics of them with their passes. Then I believe sometime in the 1990's Amy wrote that her doctor advised her that it was too stressful to be traveling with her kids/family. That's very strange. How would I play favorites with kids I don't know?

Check out Jennifer Anniston speaking about how uncool it was for Angelina Jolie to steal her husband while she was still married to him. Worse, she was unaware of what was going on during the filming of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It apparently was similar to the House of Love thing only with a whole lot more smoke and FIRE.
Have you seen Brad lately? He looks like h e ll.
How's Mr. Blimpie holding up?
well when Brad said he wanted children ,i dont think he had a small continent in mind hahaha

Don't be stupid. Of course, all of her kids have sweet faces, but the Chapmans are grown or almost grown. How would you know how much Amy travels or who travels with her? Seems like you're the one making odd comments.

If you knew anything about kids or families, you would know that generally the caboose or baby of the family gets spoiled rotten, especially if the mom knows this is the last one. She said Vince wanted to have more because it was so easy, but she wasn't so sure.

She claims she has to work to put her kids through college, so maybe the mystery is solved.
I thought Daddy Vince was going to spring for everything.

At least they all got to go to Africa but still had Phyllis too. Must be nice to still have help!
I guess you can't expects the Gills to be the Duggars.'-)

I think I heard Amy say something about how great their sex life is in one of her last interviews. Vince is like 6'6 tall, big boy...I can only image what he is packing. I'm sure she's not worried about getting her arms around him when she is riding that big baloney pony. I bet she is in Heaven. That lucky bitch.

Amy just seems so cold when she talks about leaving her children. She said Corrina throws her arms around her and begs for a normal family instead of one that leaves all the time (both mom and dad) and whatever they have to do is more important. I guess you didn't see that. They always talk about their love child. The older kids are out on their own or can go where they want, according to their dad.

Are you friends with Baptist Brian? He likes to use the word itch with a b to address women.
That's what he called Diane in NJ and she left.
