Kelly Rutherford – Parental Alienation is why her kids live in France

We recently learned that actress Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) and her well-know celebrity attorney Wendy Murphy are once again on the media circuit telling the story that Kelly Rutherford was victimized by the U.S. Courts. Could Kelly Rutherford that has to fly to France for custody time with her children be the new celebrity activists for the anti-family court groups?

What is not being reported or acknowledged by Kelly Rutherford or her attorney, even in her Dr. Phil interview below is that she engaged in parental alienation during the custody dispute. We noticed that even when she appeared on the Nancy Grace Show with Nancy’s pal Wendy Murphy, the discussion of “parental alienation” was not a topic that was discussed (when would any topic be off the table with Nancy Grace?)

Here are some reports on her case:

National Parents Organization

“During their divorce and custody case, Rutherford embarked on a single-minded campaign of parental alienation against Giersch including her repeated refusal to put his name on Helena’s birth certificate. She was so persistent in trying to cut Giersch out of his children’s lives that it even got the attention of the judge in their custody case, something countless fathers will tell you is not easy to do. Generally speaking, courts grant mothers broad leeway in permitting or denying access by the father to his children.”


“In his (sic) decision, obtained by TMZ, the judge chose to make Kelly’s ex Daniel Giersch the “residential parent” because “Daniel (who lives in France) has facilitated the relationship of the children with Kelly … and Kelly simply has not done so.”

See the end of the above video she says, “I have always wanted them to have a relationship with their father … I want us to co-parent.” She is quite an actress and she says it convincingly. But then that’s “what she wanted” and not necessarily “what she did“. And on April 15, 2015 a Federal Court ruled that the California Family Law Court’s ruling that gives Rutherford’s former spouse custody of the children to live in France was upheld.

Inasmuch as Kelly Rutherford is blaming the Family Law Court System, perhaps she should really be speaking about Parental Alienation and what not to do! We really hope that Kelley Rutherford will stop bashing the family courts, playing victim and take ownership over the parental alienation issue. Perhaps it’s time she took a lesson from Ray Rice or Adrian Peterson in that regard.

    I am a mother who has been alienated from my daughter for almost 4years. I haven’t seen or spoken to her once. The paternal grandma and father are in contempt of a court order but the court system doesn’t care. Where are my motherly rights and civil rights? These people have lied, payed people lawyers off to make me look like a horrible person.I had a baby girl and at a very young age she was stolen from me. I’m at a loss of what to do and I understand Kelly Rutherfords pain. Please help us keep our kids. There are horrible Judge’s that don’t care what deviations they are causing us as moms. Kelly keep fighting, I i’m behind you 100%. God bless you, Trish
