I’ve been a little behind the times, lately. A friend of mine brought the whole Donna LaCroix and Ghost Divas interview to my attention yesterday. I can’t say that I was surprised by any of it. By that, I mean I can’t say that I’m surprised that Donna pointed the finger at someone else for her difficulties.. she and Brian have spoken out before and implied that they were mistreated.
Let’s take a look at what she actually said with a brief excerpt from the interview.
DIVAS: Honestly, the staging thing. Cuz the rumor is, now, is that there’s a staging crew on the TAPS production, there, there, where they do nothing but stage the evidence that’s going to be… so they, I don’t wanna call them magicians because they’re not even that good. I mean the things that they’re putting out here lately are just total crap. Now I gotta ask, back in the day, did you have any run-ins with, um, you know, him, them saying, “Make sure the, the cable’s in there, the EMF meters, and the FISHING LINE?”
DONNA: Uh, I never was exposed to any of those conversations and I think it’s because had I been exposed to that I would flip my lid and they, they knew me enough to know that uh, I could not know of any of that. And I do believe the same thing with the other cast members because it would put them in an awkward position.
I don’t know about you, but it sure sounds likes Donna was confirming Ghost Divas’ accusations that Ghost Hunters or TAPS had a staging crew. Apparently, Donna doesn’t see it that way. She later clarified her statements in a letter to address her comments in the interview.
Issue #1. TAPS fakes evidence and Donna knows of a staging team that is part of the crew that does this. (So, please Dan, take down the You Tube please).
Answer: NO! I never said I caught them staging things. I said I had a turning point moment where I saw something I considered staged and it upset me to an incredibly disappointing point. And I never heard of TAPS having a “staging crew” on their Ghost Hunters show until it was mentioned in the interview. And I said it in the interview. I have since verified that they DO NOT have a staging crew.
So, my question this morning is: Which is it Donna? Your interview was filled with how all this was personally difficult for you because of your personal commitment to honesty. Seems a bit contradictory to me.
