    As a reminder… Ashlee made Emmett that amazing dinner with a clean house, when she was only 6 weeks postpartum with her fifth baby, all because she sensed that HE might be struggling with something, setting every single need of her own aside just to show him she loved him. She was the perfect wife by every definition, and he threw it all away for nothing. So many cautionary tales in this tragedy.

      @sherricaroberts783 I really disagree with the "nobody's perfect" excuse because it's just common decency to not cheat on your wife

      He threw it all away for a woman that did not give 2 effs about his well being and quite literally his life. A horrific reminder that we have to do right by the people who love us ....😢

    Ashley is absolutely gorgeous. Has 5 kids and still looks that amazing? She didn’t deserve any of this. She was there for him even when he didn’t deserve it and made that whole dinner, cleaned the house all to make him feel special because he was pulling away. She is so selfless and deserves nothing but the best. So happy she’s remarried with a huge family now. I hope she’s doing well and thriving.

    Candy is a horrible, horrible person. Ashlee and her children are the true victims. Her husband didn't realize what a wonderful wife he had. Dr. Phil is the devil and cashes in on people's pain and vulnerability.😡😡😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬

    • Claudia
      Claudia 15 days ago +5

      Instead of focusing on Dr. P, I'll concur that Candy is a POS. She sided w/ her husband during the trial because she didn't have Emmett anymore. But what really sticks out to me is the embezzlement and lack of apology to Ashley. Candy is a selfish and disgusting excuse of a human being.

      @Shelley F I think was set him off was how he did leave her packed his bags was done with her… but then found out how she already had left the house to be with the other guy. The same day he left her. Like damn that would upset me too. Not shoot anyone but I’d be so pissed.

      ​@Emma Kennedy ofcourse it's mostly women and I got two older sisters so I get it. but looking through the comments shows you how people think on base level. It's actually pretty interesting.

    What amazes me about Emmett was that his wife is 100 times more beautiful than Candy both inside and out, and he still chose to cheat on her with Candy. Honestly with what he was jointly doing with Candy tearing 2 families apart he got what was coming to him

    • graedot

    Ashlee is SO beautiful and such a strong woman. It's such a shame one day their children are going to find out about how their father died and why. Candy knew he had a wife and 5 children. What kind of person, especially a mother herself, would want to sleep with someone knowing all of that? Disgusting... I hope Ashlee found someone to love and respect her. I hope their children are doing ok.

      And plus this nasty woman sent Ashlee those care packages for her baby! Out of guilt trying to appease her own guilt and make herself feel better 🤢😡 knowing she was having an affair with Ashlee’s husband while she was pregnant and just giving birth! wtf…. And he is equally as messed up to do this to his wife! She has been nothing but good to him giving him 5 kids and she is such a beautiful woman as well! He didn’t deserve her and I feel like she would have wanted to give him another chance and work things out with him tbh because she is that good of a woman!!! 😢

      While I don't think Candy is a good or even decent person, Emmet is actually the one who is willing to abandon his five children and break apart his own family. I'm not sure why everyone is pointing fingers at Candy as a home wrecker. Emmet is wrecking Candy's family just the same. Candy is not responsible for her husband's or Emmet's behavior. They were planning to file a divorce. Sure it's sad to see someone fall out of love while the other person is still fully committed, but that happens and that's no one's fault.

    Ashley is so strong. She had to deal with multiple types of grief... grief of her husband's death, grief of his infidelity, and grief for her kids losing their father. Then she had to suffer the embarrassment of people knowing her husband died cheating and fighting for another woman. I cannot imagine what this woman went through. And then to confront her husband's affair partner with such grace and articulation of her feelings....women like her are awe inspiring. I wish her a world of happiness and healing for her and her children.

I'm happy she found someone and I wish nothing but the best for her and children

    If Candy wasn't already a piece of trash for cheating on her husband, and taking part in ruining a family, to come on Dr. Phil and not even act like she was sorry. I'm glad that Ashley has found love again and has moved on. She is clearly 1000% a better woman than Candy. This may sound harsh, but I'm guessing the "sorry" she hoped for from Emmett wasn't coming either. They had both cheated behind Ashley's back, planned on going to a divorce attorney without so much as a chance at repairing the marriage. He didn't even show up for marriage counseling. He may not have been like that when they met, but he sure started to act like a P.O.S. I'm sure if Emmett had lived, Candy and him would have rubbed their relationship in Ashley's face and flaunted themselves all over town and social media. These situations are just disgusting and I'm really sorry that Ashley had to deal with it at all.

Then again the way I look at it is that Rob may have been inadvertently saving Ashley's life bc who knows what Emmett was capable of if he had so little regard for the mother of his 5 children, even while she was carrying the 5th one. I can't help but hope Rob gets that parole in 2028.

    I remember reading about this case back when it happened. Honestly, even now, I think Emmett was a major POS. He didn’t deserve to die, but I can’t bring myself to feel bad for any pain or fear he felt in his last few moments. I feel so much anger towards cheaters, especially when theres kids involved. The same goes for Kandi. She seems like a miserable human being and she deserves it.
    The only people I feel bad for are Ashlee and her kids, as well as Emmett’s family. I was so relieved to find out she remarried when I looked into her again last year. Her and her children deserve all the happiness and healing they can get.

      @Kueen KPop Asian and European are not ethnicities. Asia is a continent, I am half European (also continent) and half Asian (German and Indian). Ethnicity is genetic traits, not where you live. It's with whom you are related by blood, not culturally. But related groups often share the same culture, which should be obvious. My "race" (we usually don't use this term here) would be caucasian in both cases, since Northern West India was heavily influenced by migrations from the West for Millenia, we share more traits with them, if would go by a forensic level of evaluation. There are European people being born and raised in India, they are culturally Indian, their Nationality is Indian, but genetically there are still, for example, French. Their ethnicity would be French, if there was not enough admixture to allow a broader definition, like Central European.

    Honestly any sympathy I could have for Emmet flew out the window the moment he saw his devoted, loving wife cooked a huge dinner so they could have a good time together discussing how to fix their marriage and he couldn't be bothered to at least eat with her because all he had in mind was to go to Walgreens to meet that greasy mayonaise bag of a woman and get his jollies off with her. Too bad he died before seeing his mistress run towards her husband instead of him after the shooting, to see how much he actually meant to her

    Sounds like Candy might have been prepped by dr Phil and his team on how to act and what to say. You know, for CONFRONTATION AND REACTIONS HOPEFULLY TO HAVE A WILD NASTY SHOW.
    *****NO ONE SHOULD GO. ON HIS SHOW. HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HELPING ANYONE AND NEVER DID. Just watch his shows. Ashley's episode is a very good example!!!!!
    dr phil is ALL about EXPLOITING and USING and ABUSING VICTIMS AND BASICALLY ANYONE FOR HIS OWN VILE PLEASURE AND RATINGS which equals money (thank opra for unleashing a vile cretin on society at large.) He shouldn't be able to use the "dr". He harms people. The more vulnerable the BETTER......$$$$$$$$$$

      @Vicki L There is no wiggle room for privacy. As an employee with a top financial institution for the last decade, compliance surrounding privacy laws are assigned on a quarterly basis to keep us sharp. When you are dealing with people's finances, absolutely nothing should ever be shared. Even if it's public information, employees are not at liberty to share anything. It would not be hard to narrow down her insurance company and I for one, would not give them my business knowing how easily their staff is willing to talk.
