After another day of being talked about in the media, Misty Cummings speaks out exclusively to me and reacts to rumors about the divorce, her involvement in the disappearance of Haleigh and what “lies” ahead.
I asked her why she and Ronald are getting divorced.
“I don’t know why, I don’t want a divorce, I love Ron and his children.”
What did Ronald tell you was the reason he wanted a divorce?
“Ronald told me he wants a divorce because of my family, what law enforcement is saying, and everyone else who is telling lies about me. Again I really don’t know why, but I’m going to give him the divorce, and I’m not going to fight him in any way. I want the focus back on Haleigh and not on the divorce.”
When I asked about visiting law enforcement she detailed what that visit entailed.
“I was there to tell them where I was staying, and tell them how to reach me. I was there for about an hour yesterday before I left for Orlando. I just listened as they talked and never asked me any questions.”
What did they say to you?
“I can’t talk about that right now.”
What is your reaction to the beating you are taking on shows like Nancy Grace?
She responded, “Stop turning this into a soap opera and focus on finding Haleigh.”
What’s next for you — what are your plans now??
“I want to get a job and go back to school, put some normalcy back in my life. I will continue to help LE in any way I can.”
Tonight, on a cable news show, you were accused of changing your story — how do you respond?
“My story has not changed, just cause I don’t always use the exact same words to tell the story, that’s all.”
Misty is definitely feeling the pressure of this intense media attention. She sounded weary and fragile. I have a feeling this will all come to an end soon. Will bring you more tommorow. Don’t shoot the messanger.
