The Full US Weekly Story (Retracted), My Emails with Kaylee, & Questions On My Mind

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…

    I don’t think it was a dream sequence. It shows “three months earlier” after that scene.

    Wetpaint has the best Revenge coverage out of all the sites that cover the show, that’s how I knew months ago that Takeda was going to be played by another actor. I love their weekly recaps, and the fact that they give little tidbits of what’s to come without giving away any major spoilers.

    @Randais yeah your probably right but I’ll be sure to catch back up tonight. Best show ever!!! I had a feeling “Vic” would be fine, show wouldn’t be the same without her. :O)

    @iheart – I did see that, now that you mention it, guess it didn’t register. So the sunken boat is what we are leading up to right? The rest is backtracking, just like last year, guess that makes sense.

    I agree, colon, no Vicky would be tragic.Still curious how they will address the rest of the passengers on the plane, especially “the mistress turned traitor”..that should be interesting.

    yea, i read an interview with mike kelley where he said that every season he is going to follow the same format as the first.. start off with an event, then lead up to what actually happens throughout the season and return back to that event.. so im sure that the amanda does end up at the bottom of the ocean, but im also sure it isnt jack who is down there with it..

    the whm is an interesting storyline.. im still not ruling out that he is in contact with david clarke.. there have been many times the whm could have spilled emily’s real identity and hasnt, so i know theres more to his story..

    im also excited to see that they casted emily’s mom! jennifer jason leigh.. i know mike kelley was saying that was going to be his primary focus during the break.. to find the perfect fit to play the part.. he wanted someone as diverse as madeline stowe, and im sure she will bring a lot to the table, shes a great actress.. he also said that emily is going to learn that her mother did have some type of mental illness (although it seems vic kept her locked up longer than she needed to be?) he said hes also going to delve into emily’s struggles with finding out about her mom and her illness, and as she learns more about herself, she’ll also find out whether or not she might have inherited some of her mom’s disease..

    and yea, aiden is the character’s name youre referring to, randais.. not sure exactly what his role will be, but it will be significant this season.. i wonder what plan takeda has for him in regards to emily bc we did see aiden take off after her, following takeda’s orders..

    one thing is for sure, this season is gonna be good!

    sorry for the novel, why does it not look this long when im typing?? haha..

    one more thing, my initial thought is that lydia doesnt survive the plane crash and vic exits last minute.. but, if they are truly building a case against conrad, maybe she is also in hiding? i just dont see the trial happening for some reason.. i think other things will come up, and the story will take a whole new direction.. but we shall see!

    Thanks @iheart for the Wetpaint tips. So now that we know all the twists from season 1, there’s no way they will kill off Jack in the sunken Amanda. Although the person is a married male & wearing Jack’s shirt, think it will be one of the new characters such as Em’s new love interest or Daniel’s half brother (spoilers released by abc themselves, clever) similar to killing off Daniel’s friend (his name escapes me), in season 1, who was not one of the main characters and not well liked. Read also there will be a wedding this season, hmmmm, so maybe the groom is the guy in Jack’s sunken boat. Or, maybe Jack sell’s his boat as Nolan asked him in episode 1 if he’s still selling it. I have to re-watch the episodes to catch all the juicy clues.
    Great show, great writing!

    @debb0- tyler! and i agree, it will probably be a new character that they bring on this season, but one who has a major role while hes on, just like tyler did..

    i didnt think of that.. maybe nolan does buy it to help jack out with his bar.. in that case, i would think emily is the reason it is at the bottom of the ocean..

    And right on cue, exit white haired villain and enter real Mandys new hero (Nolan’s not going to like that).
