That’s the understatement of 2007. How about the fact that Dan Roach was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual battery against a minor? A minor under the age of 13!

Some brutally honest words from The Evil Beet
I mean, poor Wynonna can lose all the weight in the world, get a face lift, a tummy tuck and a boob job, but she’ll never look like a 10-year-old again. Sometimes you just have to admit you can’t compete.
