A week from today, next Friday night the 5th, I’ll be in NY having a get together at 8:00pm at Bounce Sporting Club, 55 West 21st Street (between 5th and 6th Ave). We have an area reserved for anyone that wants to come hang out. No charge, but I’d gotten enough people asking me where I was going to be next weekend, and since I have family stuff going on, it’d be best to just find a location where people could all meet and hang out. Special thanks to Bounce for the accommodations and hope to see as many of you out there as possible. And if you’re a Yankee fan, you better be hoping they are NOT playing that night, since that’ll mean their 162 game season just came down to one game. Don’t get me started on the new baseball playoff format. It’s so mind numbingly stupid, it makes the replacement refs look like MENSA members.
Ok, lets get to why you’re all reading today, and that’s to see the email exchange between myself and Kaylee Shepherd, the girl who told her story to US Weekly for their cover this week. On the next page, I have scanned the whole story in its entirety so everyone of you can read it, and not just go off of links where other websites are just paraphrasing it. It’s a five page story. What you’ve read the last two days on other websites are just excerpts from it. Read the whole story. It’s definitely pretty incriminating. (UPDATE: Due to copyright laws, I’ve had to take this down. So go buy it at your local newsstand or grocery store). At the very least, it brings up some serious questions. At least for me it does, and I’ll get to those later. Before you begin reading the story then followed by the emails, keep these things in mind:
-My emails with Kaylee are completely separate from the US Weekly story. One has nothing to do with the other. I guess you could say Kaylee’s emails are a “prequel” to what US Weekly released this week. My emails with Kaylee were from April 20th through May 17th. I have not heard a word from Kaylee since the last email you see written on May 17th. Hell, yesterday I said April through July because that’s when I thought it was, but when I went back and cut and pasted all the emails, I realized it was May. It’s been over 4 months since I’ve heard anything from her, nor do I expect to.
-For those thinking these are doctored or I’m just making these emails up… please. Do you realize how much trouble I could get into for doing that? These are the emails Kaylee and I had with each other 6 months ago cut and pasted from my inbox.
-You’ll notice on a few of the email exchanges, if you look at the time stamp, I receive an email from her, and then the time on my response is BEFORE the one she sent me. So once again, for all you conspiracy theorists (Jemily fans), that’s not doctored. Every email that I receive has a time stamp on it to when I receive it in Central Standard Time, because that’s the time zone I live in. When I respond back, the time zone that I’m writing to appears. So since Kaylee lives in Mountain Standard Time, she’s an hour behind me. So if I write back five minutes after she emails me, the time stamp will show it’s 55 minutes before she sent her email. Not at all important, but I already know some people are going to dissect these emails to try and say they’re fake. They’re not. Hell, just read them. You really think I’d take the time to fake 36 emails about something that happened 6 months ago?
-Me printing these emails today has nothing to do with some sort of vendetta against Kaylee. I never spoke to her on the phone once. I don’t even have her number. This was the only form of correspondence we ever had. As you read the emails, you’ll see that I had no intention of ever telling her story unless she wanted to and wanted her name out there. This was a dead story that was never even going to be a blip on my radar again. But once she gave her story to US Weekly this week, why wouldn’t I come out and share what she told me months ago? As you’ll see, there’s nothing scandalous in these emails. All I’m doing is trying to present her as 1) an actual real person 2) someone that did have a relationship with Jef before the show 3) someone that knew an awful lot about him 4) and that she had every opportunity to sell him out to magazines months ago, and she didn’t.
So read the US Weekly story on the next page (actually, I’ll just include a link that covers most of the quotes), followed by the email exchange me and her had from April 20th – May 17th, and I’ll give you my thoughts afterwards…
