This is the story about Ghost Hunters International’s Robb Demarest that aired on Australia’s Today Tonight on 5 April 2016. The interview was conducted a week before that.
At the time of the interview I was aware of only 3 women but by the time it came on TV, more had come forward.
There are a few minor facts that need correction/clarification (I don’t think these misstatements took away from the story, which I think was very well done) —
- we were messaging on pretty much everything EXCEPT Twitter, whereas the segment says we were messaging on Twitter.
- it says Robb was dumped from GH, when in fact it was GHI.
- it says he begged for a second chance after I found out about his cheating — I think there were some crossed wires there — they asked if he’d tried to get in touch and I said yes (he sent several messages and called 2x) but that I didn’t answer him. I would imagine they were his attempts at damage control; I definitely didn’t think he was trying to get back with me.
The New Idea interview was published on 28 March. Once I started sharing about it more women came forward, taking the number to eight, seven of whom are single moms.
I guess the moral of the story, to would-be cheaters, is to not piss off Hakka-Chinese single moms with disabled babies and 1.9 million followers.
