time high. Some of our urban areas continue to look like war zones. And there is an assault on workers from wingnuts who now hold power in state offices all across the country.
But sorry, tonight I am going to blog about my man Roy Williams. The "Dallas Cowgal" who dropped $76,000.00 on an engagement ring and now he wants it back.
Poor Roy, seems he tried to get hitched with Missy, but unfortunately for him she must have been watching the Casey Anthony trial and had OJ flashbacks.
"Roy Williams is going to court to get back the $76,000 engagement ring he gave to a former beauty pageant winner.
In February, Williams proposed to his girlfriend, Brooke Daniels. When she turned him down, Daniels didn't return the ring. According to Williams' affidavit that was filed in a Texas court last week, he asked for the ring back but was told by Daniels that she had lost it. An insurance investigation later revealed that Daniels' father was in possession of the ring.
Michael Daniels told the Odessa American that his daughter will return the ring to avoid the lawsuit even though he says he has documentation saying Williams told her to keep it." [Story]
Hey fellas, what's that rule on engagement rings? Three months of your gross salary? I know that Roy makes a nice chunk of change in the NFL, but hell, those boys are on strike, and there is no telling when they will be going back to work. Roy might need to pawn that bad boy.
Roy, I have some good news and some bad news for you: The good news is that if you lived here in Pistolvania [or a state with similar laws] you would probably win your lawsuit. That ring would be considered a conditional gift in our fine state. The bad news is that you live in Texas, and there is no telling what the courts down there will do.
Anyway, for your sake, I hope that daddy convinces his daughter to give you back your bling. And here is a little advice from the field: In the future, shop around a little more for "Mrs. Right" before you go hitting up your jeweler.
