Darci Rynsburger vs. Dennis Rynsburger

So apparently, this Darci Rynsburger is as crazy as you assume she is the second you lay eyes on her. Hair-trigger. Has thrown a blender at husband Dennis’ head. The first words out of her mouth are yell-y aggressive. She matches her eyeshadow to her sleeveless shirt. Blind in one eye. While talking about how…

Desiree Spain vs. Arthur Spain

As far as I’m concerned, a man who wears head-to-toe silver can do no wrong. Absolutely, positively nothing wrong. Especially when Mr. Silver — aka Arthur Spain, Baptist Preacher — went on Divorce Court to save his marriage, about which his “wife-slash-husband” Desiree says he just flat-out flirts too much. C’mon, folk. He says he…

Anitra Cooper vs. David Jackson

How’s this for a quote: “I throw things at him because he makes me angry.” So yeah, I think David Jackson might be on solid footing in his accusation that his blushing bride has, shall we say, anger management issues. Anyway, I have a sneaking suspicion David Jackson may be bi. And I have more-than-a-sneaking-suspicion…

Vanessa Olguin vs. Scott Lambaria

This one seems cut and dried: Scott Lambaria wants to take his leave of Vanessa Olguin because she’s a cheater to the tune of biting at a fakely seductive, entrapping Facebook account that he’d set up. She wants to leave him because he’s broke. She’s a “playa.” When they met, she was already married but…

A police officer describes what arresting the confessed Kensington Strangler felt like

Minutes after a tipster said the alleged Kensington Strangler was in a house on Mutter Street, more than a dozen police officers converged on the area. Some blocked escape routes along the alley behind the house. Others ran to the front door and looked through a window. After an officer saw an unknowing Antonio Rodriguez…

Crecie Washington vs. Arthur Tukes

You know where Arthur Tukes went wrong, despite the fact that he claims never to have cheated on his bride? The impregnation of another woman while they were “on a break” is a good place to start. In Mr. Tukes’s defense, he bought tires for Crecie’s car who still loves him “a little bit,” though…

Here’s a photo of the Kensington Strangler immediately after arrest

I haven’t had a chance to peruse the papers or TV station websites yet, but I suspect this photo sent via MMS by a friend on the force last night is among the first looks at an arrested Kensington Strangler. His name’s Antonio Rodriguez, 22, recently did a couple months for a probation violation after…
