O.J. Simpson's Girlfriend

It's hard to believe that any woman would hang around with the likes of O.J. Simpson, but 12 years ago, a pretty 20-year-old started dating the accused wife killer. They've been together ever since.

Her name is Christie Prody. She's now 32 and looking a bit worse for wear. I guess loving O.J. isn't easy. Here's a clip from this morning's Today Show about this woman who friends describe as "a shy girl."

After the original broadcast, Today brought in relationship experts to discuss Prody's unfortunate attraction. Dr. Drew Pinsky maintains that women who go for bad bets like O.J. are often expressing a subconscious wish to heal difficult relationships with their own fathers.

I am so grateful for having a wonderful, caring, loving father. I really do believe that because of him I have never been attracted or stayed with a man who belittled or touched a hair on my head out of anger.

It still took me a long time to find my perfect-for-me-husband but it was worth the wait to find a class act like dear 'ol dad.

This post is so true. I have a good relationship with my dad but there are times when I just want to fix everyone around me, its called co-dependancy...and let me say it is hard to break because you cannot fix everyone around you. Beware too how those you try to help can also drag you down with them before you even realize it!
