26. A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story
Original Air Date: March 1, 1992
Director: Dick Lowry
Stars: Meredith Baxter, Stephen Collins
Lesson Learned: Try to keep those splits amicable.
They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned—especially if she's Betty motherfuckin' Broderick. When the loose cannon's (Meredith Baxter) husband (Stephen Collins, a.k.a. REVEREND CAMDEN) leaves his wife of 16 years for his younger legal assistant with whom he's been carrying on an affair, she's not too pleased about it.
And that's an understatement. Breaking vases and burning her man's clothes are the least of the rejected wife's wrath. Imagine your ex barreled through your front door via her car. The bonkers event almost upstages Betty murdering the Rev and his new wifey in their bed.
