The Betty Broderick Story: What Really Happened | Dirty John | Netflix
Socialite Betty Broderick hits a homicidal boiling point during a bitter divorce from her unfaithful husband. Based on the headline-making crime.

  • Both parties were absolute monsters in this story. Dan was a cheating ass wipe who got his rocks off by thinking he was the hottest shit in the room and Betty was a psychopath who was pissed off that she was getting a divorce and couldn't accept that fact.

  • I really felt for Betty. I've been with my husband for 20 yrs. We met when we were 16 and 18. You grow up together and put your heart and souls into making a life for each other. I at one time earnt more than my husband while he studied to be a management accountant. For his final yr he focussed solely on his studies so we struggled on one wage. It paid off and now I'm a stay at home mum and my husband provides for us all. I would be devastated if suddenly he traded me in for a younger model. It's a womans worst nightmare to have your world taken from under your feet and your totally powerless. And using the kids as pawns in a game. What a horrible man he was. If only Betty could have moved on but he took every bit of her and left her as an empty shell. I'd like to think I'd have more respect for myself than to let a man destroy me but on the other hand I can't blame her for what she did. It was mental abuse. The real victims are the kids now left with no parents

  • BB testified under oath, Dan never admitted having an affair. That’s confusing. BBs parents left bc she left, and drove over to DBs bc he sold there home. I think she only seen the children before she drove to the house that was sold right underneath her & set it on fire, then went back to DBs house to drive her truck into the front of his house. She didn’t drive it through the house. She hit the front door. No one was hurt but DB called police and then put BB in psych ward. That is the reason I’ve seen, that BBs parents left.

  • Both movies shows 2 different types of is the victim and the other was a pain in the ads...this is just her story..Throughout the movie Dan did express his feelings..he wasnt happy..abd he did take responsibility for the kids...but the only thing that would have saved him is to move far away and wend money for the kids qnd give her spousal support...but he did his mess in front of her...its crazy that he didnt see his life in danger..she was not playing with him...

Ha ha Ha ha ha if she opens her mouth again and says that she doesn’t feel sorry for what she did how much she’s going to be there longer. You can’t get any more psychopath than that.

  • I watched the mini series from the 90’s with Meredith Baxter and they really painted a Betty as the crazy stalker wife. I found this Dirty John version much more truthful and it showed that not only was Dan Broderick a manipulative gas lighter but his mistress, new wife however you see her was also manipulative with Dan to get him to leave Betty while crying to him about not being able to tell her Daddy/family that she was in a relationship!!!! At the end of the day though Betty did commit murder and that is not how this should have gone.

I can't imagine what they went through my heart goes to them

  • In today's law, Betty would've been seen as a victim of mental and emotional abuse. It's legitimate domestic violence. She began in her youth as a well adjusted woman and gradually through their marriage and divorce, her mental health deteriorated. It was persistent and nonstop and she had no legal power to get help. On her part, she couldn't move on without legal representation. Very sad and tragic. And what's worse is that as late as 2017 her speak for early parole was still denied. Even though there is zero evidence that she is or was a generally 'violent' character that it a danger to society. She was violent to her opressor, but surely now she should have been granted for time already served? Just goes to show that the patriarchy is still alive and kickibg. Men can get angry and committ murder and the law will always find in their favour. Women must never get angry, never breakdown and put up with it or they will be hauled away and the key thrown away 🤷🏿‍♀️

  • The start of the video even says this is from “Betty perspective”. She did all this crazy things from her own admission. The story on Netflix is good. But it’s also way too sympathetic to her. That’s why all these easily manipulated lower intelligent people are commenting that Dan deserved it and Betty was made to do it. Betty was a bloody monster. Dan and Linda were scared of her and we won’t ever see there side bc Betty killed them. The sad thing is she really did need that mental hospital, they should have locked her up and kept her in there. Hope prison is torture for her.

    • Yes he was. He cheated on her while denying it. Betty was a great wife and mother who did everything for her family and adored her husband. She also designed his offices and gave him the encouragement to go into his own business practice. He used her as a maid and helper then just up and leaves ... Dan stole the divorce files and fined her for every word and damages to the house but I mean she was pushed to the edge. Keeping her wedding china and taunting her repeatedly was a nasty sociopathic thing to do. . Her own parents were assholes and she had noone. Poor woman who was scorned so badly after her husband did what he did then made her feel insane so she went mad. I'd go mad too if I was married for 16years and had four children to a man who forced me to endure a stillbirth and miscarriages plus work while he studied. Then she continues being home maker while he gets richer feeding his own greedy desires ... Narcissist prick

When he wanted her to be always pregnant and working all the time while using her in his own benefit, is enough of a clue to leave!!!!!!! And for those who think "is not that easy" I have a question.... Was it easier to stay???? Betty is still at jail! Please people, learn to say NO on time.

The woman broke into their house at night, disabled the phone and shot them both in their bed. Most murders have experienced trauma in their lives. Having a fanny doesn't somehow make your trauma worthy of killing people.

I know Betty smashed the alarm system which is how she gained access with her daughter's key without waking them at 5:30am, but surely that wasn't the only high security he could afford on his income. Even an unbreakable and bulletproof bedroom door would have done it.

    • @J Moore Africans are so tribally fragmented - there's 300 different ethnicities in Nigeria alone (according to a parliamentarian from Abuja, the capital, I spoke with in 2018) that they don't have that universal spirit of helping you see in countries with more homogenous ethnic makeups. Persoanlly, I believe the genetics associated with that have carried over to all Africans, even those that live outside of it. The problem with the "caring about everyone" attitude you see outside Africa is that it often translates to "caring about no-one" but yourself. Because everyone in your country is of the same basic ethnicity or genetic/cultural makeup, there's no group to specifically care for, so you care for no-one. You owuld have noticed that smaller more well-defined ethnic groups care a lot more for each other than those in the majority.

If you listen to survivors stories, you’ll see it’s similar except hers is so extreme but anyone can be manipulated by these types- all depends on your vulnerability and childhood wounds. He’s def the villain. I think and hope ay least 100 years from now people will understand the effects of emotional abuse and control like this. What he did was crazy making. I feel bad for her.

    • Such things happen outside marriage too. Here in my country a woman shot her mate multiple times and then killed herself because he broke up with her. They were not marriage, only had sex and lived together. The problem with romantic relationships is that people are way too selfish. They want a mate only to please their own desires, and when it's no longer interesting, they chase the other person away.
