This is a rough sitch. Wynonna’s husband got busted for diddling while in rehab. The girl was 13. I know rehab is supposed to be a safe place to confront your feelings but let’s not get crazy. Wynonna’s a big heap o’ woman and she’s triumphed again and again but this one’s gonna be hard to write a country song about. She’s speaking about the incident for the first time.
“My first response when it happened was, I am a mother first and foremost,” Judd, 43, tells Ladies’ Home Journal in its September issue (on sale Aug. 14).
“I knew what I was getting into and I tried to change it,” says Judd, who also still attends Shades of Hope to deal with her food addiction. “I knew that both Roach and I had issues with addiction when I married him. I know my life. I know the people I chose, I know why I chose them and I really thought that I could change people through loving them enough. It doesn’t work that way.”
Shades of Hope is the rehab center where husband D.R. Roach got busted. He’s up on three counts of aggravated sexual assault and battery on a minor. Wynnona has filed for divorce, but she kinda sounds like she’d be cool with getting back together with Chester. She’s a forgiving chick. If I came home and my boyfriend was having young boys jump on a trampoline with their shirts off like Gordon Jump did on that “Dif’frent Strokes” episode to Arnold and Dudley, I’d open fire with my gat.
