Saw that piece of trash (Patrick Swayze's wife)on entertainment tonight and what does she want??? MORE MONIES???? He's not even too cold and the "itchbay" is out there for what??? she must have had a face lift or something, never looked as good as tonight and just laughing.... well, guess you can laugh, after a dam book deal and nothing but interviews and nothing for free, of course. People admired Patrick, they did not know too much about his wife and now everybody knows...if they have a "brain"!! People die and the trash like LISA tries to cash in!!!! Have you seen Paul Newman's wife on interviews??? Hell, no...and you will not. But, not her fault if they offer all these monies and she is too dam greedy to go for it. Hope Patrick comes back and takes care of her greedy ass.... one sorry ass woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
