Oh, she stole fabulous merchandise from Neiman’s, all right, and spent less than a year behind bars, but now Angie Barrett is on the upswing, what with a show that she pays to air on Belo’s WFAA.
But then there’s this famous little episode that doesn’t make it in the piece, in which Barrett parties late, roughs up her then 76-year-old husband Bill, then took off into the night before being busted by the police. But influence (or something like that) allows the Barretts to have the charges dropped, and the Morning News spikes a story about said influence (the Barretts are also big contributors to the paper’s charity fund drive, or something like that). IJS. It makes me dizzy.
