Shellie Zimmerman's lawyer Kelly Sims made a handful of strange comments during a press conference on 9/11/13.
If Shellie Zimmerman wants her marriage to George Zimmerman to end quietly, she should avoid holding press conferences that become disasters.
She should avoid press conferences in general, but that one Wednesday? Ouch.
How bad was that conference with Shellie's attorney Kelly Sims?
Shellie Zimmerman's lawyer explains why she called 911 and said her estranged husband George had a gun.
"Long and at times bizarre," WESH-Channel 2 anchor Syan Rhodes said. WESH anchor Jim Payne found it "one of the most bizarre displays I think I have ever seen."
Sims' melodramatic presentation included references to the Batmobile, Siegfried & Roy, Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry and the Tower of Terror.
"Zimmerman's wife fires back," "GMA" headlined the story.
The consensus: She and her attorney missed the target.
But the news conference reflected a story -- the Zimmermans' domestic dispute as they divorce -- that was overblown and confused from the start.
I think millions share Shellie's hope that the marriage ends quietly. The best way for that to happen is for George and Shellie to stay out of the spotlight.
We beg you: Please. You'll help yourselves. You'll do everyone a favor.
George Zimmerman's estranged wife Shellie does not want criminal charges brought against her infamous husband, her attorney said Wednesday. She just wants to get through the divorce and move on, he said.
