Wendi's testimony beggars belief. ''My family aren't millionnaires - although we did offer Dan $1 million to give up his rights to the kids''. ''My brother talked repeatedly about hiring a hitman to kill my ex, but he was only joking. The fact that my ex was killed by a hitman? Pure coincidence''. ''I fought tooth and nail, and spent thousands in lawyers' fees tying to get sole custody of the kids - but I was relieved when I lost''.
