For Reals: William Shatner Interviews Mary Kay Letourneau & Vili Fualaau
It almost sounds like a “Saturday Night Live” sketch – cast the legendary, self-aware King of kitschy over-acting William Shatner as Host. Add as Guests convicted child rapist Mary Kay Letourneau and her one-time victim-turned-husband Vili Fualaau, who both live in neighboring Des Moines.
Oh, and be sure to hit the Record button, ‘cuz this could be interesting, to say the least.
The result? An interview on a new show on the Biography channel called “Aftermath” that borders on surrealism.
To wit – at one point, Letourneau reveals to Shatner that she had no idea that having a “relationship” with an underage boy was illegal, let alone a felony.
There’s another priceless (ok, it’s kinda gross) moment where Letourneau talks about their “first kiss” (at the time she was in her 30s, and he was what? A 12-year old 6th grader?): – listen to her soundbites here:
Letourneau did her time of course, spending seven years in prison for child rape. She and Fualaau married in 2005, and they currently live in Des Moines with their two children.
Oh, and they can sometimes be seen hanging out at the All Star Sports Bar, where Vili often guests as a DJ.
Here’s the episode in its entirety (don’t say we didn’t warn you…):
