jasmar, your post had me chuckling at first, then wanting to extend sympathies.
And you're right - narcissists and sociopaths have the lowest rate of success in psychiatric treatment. Maybe cos deep down they really do love themselves as is? (I dunno on that one...)
An old interview with Danny: http://www.cmongethappy.com/interviews/db
Something I've wondered about during this show. I keep seeing the ads saying this, too. "If he hadn't asked if I'd ever had an affair..."
Weren't Danny and Gretchen married in 1987?
And the transvestite hooker 'incident' was in 1990? Surely Gretchen knew about that, if we do? So...
His cheating is news to her?? (or to him) I can't see how that was a revelation, since Gretchen already knew about his longtime affair too from the letters? Parts of this show do feel contrived. (Yes, sometimes I do state the obvious!).
