“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.”
1) It is well documented that Kelly Rutherford engaged in parental alienation against her former spouse. She and her attorney Wendy Murphy can deny it, but is appears to be widely reported that’s Kelly Rutherford didn’t necessarily practice first rate co-parenting skills during her custody dispute.
2) Kelly Rutherford is using her celebrity status to ask the President of the United States to overturn or ignore the California Family Court Judge’s Order. She wants to blame the Family Court System rather than take responsibility for her own actions.
3) I personally think that celebrities should be held to higher standards just like professional athletes. In 2014, the National Football League was clearly pressured by the media and special interest groups to take action on domestic violence incidents among their athletes. But in the case of Kelly Rutherford, the media appears to want to give her a free pass on this.
4) Kelly Rutherford should show some respect for our nation’s Family Court System. Rutherford and certainly her attorney Wendy Murphy know that there are no such things as permanent custody orders. Rutherford can always go back to California Family Law Court to petition the court for a change of the custody schedule.
Instead of playing victim in this situation and possibly inciting other custodial embattled mothers, I would like to see Kelly Rutherford step forward and take ownership of her known present or past issue with parental alienation. Now that’s an issue that is worth supporting!
5/12/2015 Update: Kelly Rutherford got her 100K signatures thanks to Kim Kardashian and Ed Westwick. At the end of the day, she is still a parental alienator. I am certain that many people signed her petition because she claims she is broke and can’t see her kids. That’s far from the truth. She can go to Europe and see her kids anytime. I would bet that she talks to them regularly on the phone. She’s probably telling them that mommy is fighting for you which is parental alienation. She really needs to spend less time protesting and more time rebuilding her reputation with the California Judge. It sounds like she is headed in the wrong direction.
