Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I thought Joanna was such a game player. She kept playing the victim and she started getting on my nerves. She should have gotten a job before she left. She didn't even take her only child. She was a spoiled brat. All she cared about was herself. She obviously didn't care about her son to take him with her. She just wanted to screw around without the kid being in the way. She proved that when she came back with a boyfriend and then played with the idea of wanting the kid back so she wouldn't seem like the heartless, cold witch that she was. Then she didn't want him anyway when she got her way. Why didn't the judge put her in the looney bin?
