Weird People Do Weird Things – Like Merritt Morrison Turner Patterson The Insanely Shallow Blogger- Its Proven!

Interesting information about a local woman who harasses people, stalks their children and writes insanely shallow stories about them. Merritt Patterson, best buddies with the 2 times bankrupt, evicted former cast member on Big Rich Texas Bonnie Blossman Myer the 6 time parolee Carl Allen Henegan of Houston and Fake News no where blogger Ife Blount of Wisconsin.
We have found a very interesting overview for Merritt C. Patterson that should be shared since that is what she would want you to do. Patterson would do the same thing and has shared stories of this same nature many times. Merritt Patterson of Dallas is a self proclaimed blogger who abuses her contractual privileges at various online sites that have allowed her to write insanely shallow stories about innocent local people while jeopardizing the publication who would/should also be held liable for Patterson’s malice. She is wife of Michael C. Patterson a mother of 2 and has 2 step children. Michael is employed by the almost defunct TXU in Dallas and had a small home on Lovers Lane. They move a lot due to Merritt’s bad breath.

You can look up her home at 4512 Normandy Ave in Dallas AND if you drive over to the condo you will see it is nestled in between a few ugly houses close to a wall that blocks the street from the noisy Tollway. (nice) Poor Michael’s wife Merritt is a convicted fraud. See Dallas public records from 2009 to 2011 where she was sued for more than $80,000. Wow Merritt was this a mid life crisis? It dammed sure wasn’t a teenage prank thats for sure.Looking back at this insanely shallow woman, we can see that a few years ago Merritt got pregnant with hopes to move out of her apartment into a home in lovely East Plano Texas. A home with a garage next to the FRONT DOOR! Just the type of home Merri Pat likes to knock people out for which is Appalling. (see her addresses on the document below as she has lived (rented) 3 addresses in East Plano) Merritt is on record bashing Plano Texas over the years and ridiculing many of the residents, their children,the schools and pretty much anything about Plano Texas. Hypocrite much?

The record below also shows that old Merri has lived in quite a few apartments. I say this because she also bashes people who have lived in apartments and in Plano. Merritt C. Morrison Turner Patterson is not from Dallas she is from Oklahoma not that there is anything wrong with that. Patterson has changed her phone number many times as she has changed her name. Not surprising for a person like her. I personally have had the same number for 15 years but I’m guessing her fraudulent behavior and malicious acts have people between Oklahoma and her Park Cities Bubble looking for her insanely shallow ass.Old Merritt likes to call the Kettle BLACK doesn’t she. Isn’t that SPECIAL?1. Multiple Names Used By Merritt Patterson

2. Merritt Patterson has lived in multiple homes (3) over in the lovely Plano Texas and spent the majority of her life as an apartment dweller. She was able to move into the small house on Lovers Lane after she (scammed) got pregnant by Michael and was much thinner. I am told she is back in a (gasp!) condo today.

3. Merritt Patterson has a criminal background in Dallas County (DCRecords Division 2009 – 2011) for Fraud where she had to pay somewhere around $80,000 in restitution.

4. Merritt C. Patterson is a divorcee

5. Merritt C. Patterson is basically a liar and a bully.

The LA Auto Show Was A Treat for Pamela Martin Chairwoman of the Luxury Marketing Council of Texas – Loves The Idea of Electric Super Cars

The spectacle was just that “a spectacle” at The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles where Pamela took a few family members along to see what the hype was all about. A very special bonus was seeing a certain +La+Clippers player

We began with the “Concept” division which was THE most outstanding display of machine and good looks put into a motor vehicle – we couldn’t get enough AND loved pretty much everything we saw.

The list of fabulousness goes on forever and Ive got photos to prove it.  Take a look at some of these new concepts we were blown away by:

Public apology given to Pamela Martin Duarte by local women and a couple of venomous bloggers for fabricating and publishing untrue stories about her

July 12, 2012

Apology is one of the hardest words in the English language. When you realize that you’ve made a mistake and you have hurt other people in the process you owe it to those people to make amends. On February25, 2012, registered on D Magazine’s Front Burner Blog under the username of Dr. Hamilton, Kimberly Smith and I made a few untrue post about Pamela Martin Duarte (“Pamela”). The statements made by me about Pamela are not true. I had no basis for making such outrageous allegations. In fact, I mistook Pamela for another woman who I used to be acquainted with that has the same name.

I am truly sorry for the harm that my false statements have caused to Pamela and her family. I encourage those who engage in cyberbullying to think about the harm that their Mean spirited acts caused to those that they attack and to stop.

Terry Hernandez

Settlement Response from Dena Miller and public apology to Pamela Martin-Duarte
—  Pamela and Dena respect each other as strong, opinionated, intelligent Texas women who are both well-regarded professionals and philanthropists. Dena believes that women can be their own worst enemies and desire to not contribute to or participate in a game of destruction. Instead, seek to act as a positive force for women in the Dallas community and beyond. Pamela and Dena further deplore the cyber bullying that has become common throughout the country and that has manifested itself within the Dallas community. Cyber bullying, especially by anonymous individuals, is destructive to the victims and the community as a whole. Dena is sensitive to the harm that Pamela has suffered and supports Pamela’s efforts to protect her reputation and good name against the false comments posted to the D Magazine blog and the other community webpages and sites. As a result, Dena has endeavored to assist Pamela in identifying the source of the comments at the heart of the lawsuit. Dena encourages those who engage in cyber bullying to stop now and instead use their time to engage inpositive behavior that is beneficial to the community.
