The second wife, Kelly Thibodeaux, is actually the third mother of Dr. Louis Thibodeaux's five children. Dr. Thibodeaux fathered a son 24 years ago with his college girlfriend, Jan of New Orleans. Jan claimed that Dr. Thibodeaux failed to support his son, JT, for the majority of his life and even refused to meet the boy. Having kept the existence of his first son a secret from his first wife, Dr. Thibodeaux then fathered two more children with the protective mother in this case, Teresa. Finally, Dr. Thibodeaux fathered children numbers four and five with his second wife Kelly.
Kelly Reichert met Dr. Louis Thibodeaux in May 1997, exactly one month after he separated with his first wife. She was his invited guest to his graduation in July 1997 and agreed to be his visitation supervisor in September 1997 after he was alleged to having abused his then 4 year old son. Dr. Thibodeaux told child therapist Dr. Jacqueline Kowalski in December 1997 that Kelly Reichert was his "lover".
But Ms. Reichert in court testimony two months later, in February 1998, said that she did not have a sexual relationship with Dr. Thibodeaux, which contradicted him. Despite admitting that she cohabited with Dr. Thibodeaux, cooked and did the laundry for him, Ms. Reichert testified that she was no "Monica Lewinsky" (left), and not his girlfriend. Presumably, not being romantically involved with Dr. Thibodeaux would give Ms. Reichert's testimony more weight?
In the ensuing months, in behalf of Dr. Louis Thibodeaux, Kelly Reichert filed a licensing board complaint against Dr. Jacqueline Kowalski and also sent a secret letter to the Hamilton County Court Magistrate attacking Teresa ... and defending her ... ummm ... "friend" ... yeah, that's it, friend ... Dr. Louis Thibodeaux.
After Dr. Jacqueline Kowalski testified in January 2000 that with "psychological certainty" Dr. Thibodeaux had abused his daughter, Kelly Reichert then married Louis Thibodeaux on a freezing cold winter night in the middle of Dr. Michael Borack's so-called "Parental Alienation" investigation. That's right, she married a fellow under investigation for alleged child abuse. And she wants to call someone else "crazy"?
Dr. Michael Borack, who now claims that nobody should rely upon any of his opinions (don't worry we won't), provided Dr. Thibodeaux with lovely PAS reports that could have been written by Dr. Richard Gardner he followed him that close. Now in the clear thanks to the incompetent and forever unethical Dr. Borack, Louis & Kelly Thibodeaux began a campaign to denigrate the children's protective mother, Teresa. The new Mrs. Thibodeaux bore two more children, moved first to Loveland, Ohio and then into a million dollar home in Indian Hill, where she now raises her own two boys and Teresa's two children.
It was in Indian Hill where Kelly Thibodeaux read to Teresa's 11 year old son the controversial psychology book, "Understanding The Borderline Mother". The purpose was to denigrate the boy's mother and convince him that his mother is crazy. It worked, but too well. The boy also became convinced that he too suffered a borderline personality, describing himself as such. In deposition testimony, Kelly Reichert admitted that she bought the book on Amazon.com with Dr. Thibodeaux's full knowledge. She stated that she believed Dr. Thibodeaux read the book too.
Distancing himself from his wife's seemingly despicable conduct, Dr. Thibodeaux pleaded ignorance, but his wife's testimony contradicted him none the less on key points. At trial, Kelly Thibodeaux described her reading of the "Understanding The Borderline Mother" book to the boy as "a positive experience". In point of fact, however, reading a book such as that proved to be a negative experience for the boy. Only people named Thibodeaux or Mastruserio would ever say otherwise.
It was of no matter, as Judge Judson "Other" Shattuck ignored the whole thing, and ruled in favor of Louis Thibodeaux. The Judge didn't mention the repugnant book in his decision. But we mention in it here, and always will, because truth is truth, and in America truth is protected speech.
