Jon Bream doesn't seem to pay attention to details, but maybe she's answered some of the questions people have been wanting clarified about what she wrote in the book.

Thanks for sharing Latin.

.

I'm glad to know that she has Prince's family support, I just wished she was asked the questions that we really needed answers to.

I have a really bad case of Mayte fatigue.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Nice interview. She does clear one thing up for me this time- her 'friendship' with Prince's second wife.

Really because I do not recall him discussing a lot about his personal life with the public.

Funny how mayte says prince was 'more open' when he was with her as if he was giving interviews about his reaction to amir's death and his painkiller usage. Being 'open' & sociable like prince tried to be in 96 is miles away from revealing intimate details from a marriage. This is my only problem with mayte. She keeps up this poor victimized image and defends herself with ridiculous comments ('prince would hug me' ... hello??? We've all seen prince trip over far less). I've always had a soft spot for mayte and no I don't think she's evil or anything like that. I just wish she'd be more honest. If mayte said, 'he was my husband and it's my right to talk about our bad times regardless what prince or anyone else says' I would respect her more because YES SHE DOES HAVE THE RIGHT. But the 'I want the best for prince' poor widow-in-grieving act that she does so ppl are less likely to criticise the book make me rolleyes
I guess you know me well, I dont like winter, but I seem to get a kick outta doing you cold

Thank you if she were honest about needing money and exercising her right to free speech I would give her less crap.

Now she wants to write another book about what the songs were really about as if we need her interpretation of the songs. She is going to drag this out as long as she can and it is getting more ridculous by the day. I also think the only good thing is she is a boring interview and I doubt she gets much press with another book.

That meeting in 2008 is not in the book. Why she leave it out if that's the last time she spoke to him?

Because it might have been high and buy. Why Prince have a meeting with her? She makes it seem as if they were in some sort of business together?

In Nov 2006 theres a phone call, thats all. No mention of a meeting in a club other than in 2004, same year as the elections, this meeting doesnt go great.

According to the interview it was more than a Hi, and Bye.

Why did she not put it in the book them? That would have at least given him a voice make him look like he has some remorse for how things went south.

You know people will pay more attention to what is in the book then what she has to say in a interview. She has to know that. These interviews are too little and too late.

To be fair, she didn't put a lot of what went down in the book. She could've told everything. It doesn't make a difference, because you would still be unhappy either way. She's damned if she does and damned if she don't, with you.
