So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy gave a juicy interview to US Weekly. Her revelations are shocking and I can't believe she didn't write a book about them. In the interview, Mary who is 51 says she got married back when she was 18 to a man from the Middle East. About three months after they got married, the couple had a fight and it was the kind of fight where the neighbors want to call the cops. Mary said they crashed over furniture and were screaming and yelling and then during the fight her husband told Mary that he wanted to have sex with her.
"I was like, 'Are you kidding me?! We're fighting here!' He said, 'You're my wife, and you'll do what I tell you!' I pulled out a kitchen knife and screamed, 'You're going to have to stab me, because I'm not having sex with you!' He knocked it out of my hands, held me down and raped me."
After that encounter he would rape her frequently during fights. After the first year or two she stopped fighting and just let her husband rape her. "For years, I'd have black eyes and bruises, but I never called the police or went to the hospital. I didn't want anybody to know."
In 1985 after they had been married for about 9 years, Mary discovered that her husband had proposed to another woman on one of his trips back home. She also discovered he had an additional girlfriend in Germany. At that point she finally decided to leave him.
For his part, Mary's ex-husband called Mary's statements "flat-out lies." I wonder if for the past 25 years he has been raping all the other women in his life.
