Last night I had a bunch of family and friends in town. We all watched the Cubs game at my condo and snacked on all kinds of good food. Some of my cousins liked the vegan dips I made. Some didn’t. My Uncles and Aunts just wanted to go to bed so we sent them back to the hotel for the night. Today everyone is out shopping and enjoying the city. When I get off work I’m taking everyone out for a nice family dinner and then they will be on their way back to their homes. My family is big and coordinating events is always a pain in the butt. I’m glad they are here. It’s important for my boys to know everyone. I did dress them up in their Halloween costumes for a 2nd time because I thought their costumes were hilarious. For my twins first Halloween costumes I decided to do Mario and Luigi. They both had on the plumbers outfits that was just a onesey in the 2 colors and then I put hats on them that had of course they kept yanking off. I did manage to get some awesome photos of them in the hats. Everyone laughed and loved it. After they all got to take pictures with them I changed them into their cubbie shirts for the game. My boys went to bed around 8:30 and we all tried really hard to keep it down. We did wake them up twice yelling at the tv and talking too loud. I know I’m a bad daddy for that but it’s the World Series. We were all excited.

Tonight is Game 7! I did not think the series would go to this game 7 so I’m happy and worried. Last night the runs kept coming in and then the Indians came back a little and that Uh oh panic sets in. This time the game finished strong and the win was hopeful. All we talk about at the office is the Cubs. It’s so exciting to everyone. I’m happy to live here and be able to watch it with my family. The entire city is going to go crazy tonight when we win. And if we lose, it’s another disappointment, another missed opportunity, and a heartbreaking end to an amazing season.

Lindsay has been a huge help wrangling everyone around. She does her best to keep her temper in check until something stupid happens then she just walks away and you can’t find her. She helped me feed everyone last night then helped Sarah get the boys to bed while I was cleaning up the kitchen with my Aunts. I forgot how much my family eats. I swear I had a fridge full on Sunday now I need to go to the store tonight and pick up more food. I thought about having food delivered but getting pizza at dinner time during the World Series is a few hour wait at some of our favorite pizza delivery places. I told them I will pick up food and bring it home. That’s the best I can do. Lindz and I will get off work at 4 and go hit the 3 places to pick up the things we need and head back home. I hope it’s enough. It’s like watching goats eat a pasture. You check an hour later and nothing is left on the tables Lol

Heston is the first to try to push himself up to stand. He hasn’t stood yet. We work with both of them to stand and help them learn to walk. No one has done it on their own yet. Sarah said we need to get their legs strengthened for it so we work on it every day. No first words either unless Gababagabagaba is a word. That’s what it sounds like anyway. I hope Dada is their first words. I really do. I’m dying to hear it. I say it a million times a day to them trying to teach them. Sarah said the first word might be Hi since we all say that a lot too.

This weekend I decided to take everyone up to the lake house. I want to start decorating it for thanksgiving and Christmas. I have some things but I need to buy a lot more. The girls said they will help me shop for stuff. I want Christmas lights on my house. I want to buy out Hobby Lobby and get crazy with it. I want my boys to always love Christmas and enjoy the traditions we will have. I’m a real Christmas tree guy. I recycle it afterwords but I love the smell of it. There is nothing like a real tree. I’ve had the store trees before and it’s just not the same.

I went ahead and deleted about 600 pending comments. I haven’t gotten to them in months and I won’t get to them anytime soon. Thank you all who wrote a comment and shared a thought but sorry I’m not publishing or answering them. The good news is it’s a clean slate right now so you can start all over. I will get to the new ones if Lindsay doesn’t delete them all.

I’m going to finally open up about a few things. It’s frustration at this affair that won’t seem to go away. I don’t understand why people continue to be interested in me at all. So here’s a few things I want to say.

Yes I am aware for a 3rd season in a row Meri is still talking about our affair and lying. She is sticking to the fake catfish story yet again and it’s disappointing to me she can’t move on from it. I know they need ratings and I know she is trying to cover up all of her lies about the voicemails and how she really felt about me. However I’m not going to watch it. She has lied so much I don’t think me adding to it will do any good. She is never, ever going to admit the truth. Even when her own daughter knows and openly criticizes her for not being honest and hiding a lot of what really happened. The truth is I moved on a long time ago. I don’t talk about it because it’s in the past. The internet trolls are still playing their insane games and trying to solve some great mystery about me. Instead of just asking me or Lindsay anything they make up, create, and completely lie to create stories about my life and Lindsay’s life. The truth is Jackie Overton has never met Meri Brown. The truth is Jackie Overton is not a catfish and has nothing at all to do with any of this. She has moved from Oklahoma and is working hard at her job, living a good life and really pissed off that the tabloids and the internet trolls continue to lie and throw her name into this scandal.

The truth is there never was a catfish. Never. I had an affair, I ended it, I stayed away from Meri. She continued to contact me, continued to try to get ahold of me and ask to see me. I refused so she got scared and lied. She claims I’m a catfish yet she refuses to say a name. She offers ZERO proof at all. She gets all red-faced and makes no sense in her stories. Many times she makes stuff up on the spot. She has never had 1 person back up her stories and her family fell apart after they found out she cheated. She latched onto the story that was made up by the trolls and sold it to her family, her friends, and her fans. All in an attempt to cover up the truth. That we had a real affair. We met, we were in love, we had sex, and we wanted to be together. She was leaving her husband and family for me. We broke up and she is still living a quiet life alone. She doesn’t get the attention she wants, she obviously can not let go of how she feels about me and will do anything in her power to ruin me and my life. She has her trolls attack me daily, still. The good news is the troll group has dwindled down to 6 or 7 people who continue their online bullying.

Please keep in mind if you do a search on Twitter with my @notbatmanyet you will read and see the kind of things the people say about me. It’s disturbing. These are horrible women with no lives. They have attached themselves to a tabloid rumor and want to continue to feed off of it because they have nothing better to do but be mean. The truth is these trolls have caused so many problems in their own groups they can’t get along, can’t work together and only bash anyone that disagrees with them. The trolls have accomplished nothing. They have nothing to show for over a year of cyberbullying me, Jackie, and Lindsay. The sad part is that these women put so much effort into something that is none of their business. The affair was between Meri and I. No one else. Lindsay and Kendra were privy to a lot of information about what was going on. That’s it. No one else knows the full story. Anyone that came in after the fact is making shit up. That part can be frustrating. I have learned over the past year to ignore and block the trolls. They don’t have anything positive to add or say. They never ask me direct questions. All they do is hammer away at one idea and offer no proof on anything they say. Most of what is out there is all fake and lies. The real truths get overlooked and hidden. Why is that? The entire time everyone has heard me say over and over it was an affair. Why not investigate that? There were hotels we were at, restaurants we ate at, places we were seen together, a lot of people she met with me standing right there. There is so much proof yet no one looks at it. And Lindsay and I just laugh and laugh at all of the mistakes and lies the trolls make.

What all do you know about me? What I have said here about my life or what some tabloid wrote about me when the writers of the articles have never once spoken to me? See why I continue to maintain this blog? Because my story and my truth is right here. Anytime the show gets back on the air I sell a lot more of my books. I get a lot of hits to my website that makes me an enormous amount of money. And I also get my side of the story out there. A lot of people watched last season and saw the lies Meri was trying to tell. They also saw how TLC was editing the show to prove that Meri will lie to her husband to avoid getting into trouble. She is more of his assistant than his wife. I’ve said that for over a year now. And watch the show this season. Will that change? Will they grow closer after she cheated and lied to him? Or is he still distant and spending time with everyone, except her? You will see from day 1 I told ya’ll she was lying. And more of her lies will come out.

I would like everyone to leave me and my kids alone. We have a great life. I’m very happy. They are healthy and I ask you respect our privacy. I also know no one is going to do that so keep commenting. You will continue to be ignored, blocked and have nothing to show but your own hate and anger at a situation that is none of your business. I’m happy to answer questions. I have done my best to always be open and honest. I’m glad that things are quieting down and I pray that Meri finds happiness. The stories about her dating a guy in Hawaii are bs. She is talking to someone on the phone and texting him but it’s not that guy Lol All has been confirmed. I’m happy she found a new guy to talk to. She needs that. Don’t believe me? All Kody has to do is go look at her cellphone bill from Verizon. The proof is right there. Will he? Nope because he wants to continue to live a life of stuffing his head in the sand. He doesn’t care. I pray everyday that she leaves Kody. He is toxic to her. He doesn’t fulfill her life in any meaningful way anymore and he will continue to ignore and distance himself from her. He is not a good guy like he wants the world to believe. He is a verbally abusive, controlling guy that wants to justify 4 marriages when that’s not at all what it has turned into. What part of his religious life does he want to share with everyone using a tv show? There is barely any mention of it anymore. The focus has become what can this family do to peak interest and get ya’ll to watch them so they can keep cashing checks and not do any real jobs to become active members of society. Yes fame can be fun I guess. But when the show is over, who will they become? And how long until the money is gone. If you put your money in the hands of a non-college educated person and a money hungry 2nd wife, how long will that last you when you have more bills/taxes to pay than you can afford. They are all setting themselves up for a huge drop. It’s coming sooner than they think. And I hate to see it happen. I think the Brown family could have done so much more with this opportunity but they coast by with minimum responsibility to a show and a tv network that is their lifelines. The greatest indication of how much polygamy does not work for this family is NONE of their children want to partake the lifestyle. That tells me right there how bad growing up with Kody as an abuser and dictator has been. If he has to actually go out and get a real job in the next year or 2, who will even hire him? What can will he put on his resume the last 7 years of his life?

And yet I’m the bad guy Lol I have taken a lot of shit for months. It’s been very unfair yet I continue to say nothing and be graceful. I don’t know what led me to finally say something but it feels good to get some of this off of my chest. I have taken full responsibility all along for the affair. I knew she was married. I knew she was still in the family. I should have asked her to leave then gotten with her. I should have backed off. I was in love. I fell completely in love with her. I won’t ever apologize for that. But when will Meri ever take responsibility? When will Kody? Why is it all my fault when she was actively pursuing me from day 1. The voicemails she left on my phones do not lie. She was not forced to say or do anything at all. She was not threatened in any way. She was never asked to send naughty photos or do anything outside of her comfort level. She willingly continued the affair for months because she was so happy. And then we broke up. I stayed away from her refusing to talk to her and she got pissed. Then she got revenge. That’s all that happened here. Watch what I continue to do with my life and businesses and watch his. It’s no wonder to me at all that Meri found me and fell in love. Because I have always had more to offer her than working for someone who no longer cares and just wants the money she can make. He takes all of the money and divides up as needed. He does not dole it out to what each wife actually makes filming the show. That causes a lot of resentment and fights. There is so much more I can open up about since I was close to Meri for months. She confided a lot to me and I think it’s time I finally start talking about that. She deserves better. I hope she leaves Kody. I will always stand up for myself on this subject and continue to state the truth. There was no catfish. Not at all. Meri lied.  And I can’t wait to see what her life will become once she is finally free from that douchebag.

Just sayin 😉

Have something to say?
