In just about a month Lifetime will be airing, “Dirty Little Secret: The Jodi Arias Story.” I have been a hardcore Lifetime supporter since I was about 10-years-old haha. I just absolutely love the stories and how 90% of the movies are all based all real events. And I’m sure no one was surprised when Lifetime was scheming already to make a movie.
Tania Raymonde and Jesse Lee Soffer are playing Jodi and Travis. We all had our picks on who would play Jodi and we were all dead wrong. I don’t know who this Tania girl is or how well her craft may or may not be so I won’t judge– for now. I’m just hoping she portrays a very well crazy-borderline-psychotic woman.
One of my fears is that Lifetime will do another tragedy of a movie like they did with Casey Anthony’s story. It was solely based on the court proceedings and that was a bore. I was extremely disappointed in the outcome.
They should concentrate beginning from the day they met, their relationship from Jodi’s eyes and from the views of those around them. What would make the movie that much more surreal is really going into the day of Travis’ passing. Since the case is freshly new I don’t think they’ll show too many gruesome shots, but some won’t hurt.
From what I’ve read Lifetime will actually concentrate mostly on their relationship before the incident and the day of the incident which will also include the verdict. Producers did my speak to Travis’ immediate family, but have spoken to Travis’ friends and have gotten a pretty good idea of the kind of man Travis was.
Other key players who will playing Juan Martinez is Tony Plana from Ugly Betty and playing Detective Flores will be the amazing David Zayas from Dexter!
All in all hopefully Lifetime doesn’t screw this one up and keep your eyes peeled for the premiere coming June 22, 2013.

Hey Betsy!! Just a quick question/observation. Ever notice how when Jodi is faking crying she completely covers her face and blubbers a lot, but when there are actually (crocodile) tears, she lets them flow for the world to see? Just sayin…
Trish DunnMay 16, 2013 at 7:50 am
AND!!!!, she has only cried for herself!!!! She could have killed the jury with her evil-eye death stare yesterday!!!!
BetsyMay 16, 2013 at 5:21 pm
Lol yeah if only looks could kill–
BetsyMay 16, 2013 at 5:20 pm
Yup I have noticed! She tries very hard to cry and will run her nose with a tissue to make it red. Smh.
Trish DunnMay 16, 2013 at 7:51 pm
C’mon Jodi!!! You can squeeze one out for us!!!! And, why is Jodi speaking trying to “save her life” when she can’t shut up about how badly she wants to die?!?!?!? “Death is the ultimate freedom. I’d rather just have my freedom as soon as I can get it.” BULLSHIT!!! She is so damned stupid!!!! Betsy, you’re the only one I can talk to about this!! (LOL) Does she not realize how disturbing it is to hear her say shit and then turn around and do something so counterintuitive to what she said?!?!?!?! She just wants to be on camera. She truly is a camera whore!! Pictures, video; she must think somebody cares. I sure as shit DON’T!! But here i am again commenting on her. (crazy laugh)Hahaha!!! This woman I’ve never met is making me INSANE-CRAZY!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

Yes! It was definitely a reverse psychology card she was trying to play and if that were true she would just stand up in the middle of the court and say “kill me!”this is definitely an intriguing case.

I have another quick bit of funny info for you with a question. I went on the “jodiariasisinnocent.com” website and posted. THEY TOTALLY BLOCKED ME!!!! W.T.F.?!?!?!? I almost peed myself laughing incredulously!! It’s just so typical. She, Jodi, has THRIVED on duping other people into liking, believing, etc. her and these weak-minded idiots are all up in her favorite place for “love”. They can’t stand to hear an opposing viewpoint so badly that the censure you from stating it?!?!? What’s UP with that? Ever heard of this with anyone? I’d love to hear about it!!!
BetsyMay 21, 2013 at 12:08 am
That’s funny and very typical. They don’t want to hear the truth and that’s what’s ignorant people are on this earth for-/ to give us headaches!

My prediction? She asks for death, MEANS it, but only for her appeal. Let’s see…
BetsyMay 20, 2013 at 2:28 pm
Yeah. Could be a possibility.
