Who is natalee holloway mom dating
The reappearance of van der Sloot brought up haunting memories for two of Natalee's best friends, Mallie Tucker, 24, and Claire Fierman, 23.
They decided to tell their story exclusively to , a story that none of Natalee's circle has told before: about who Natalee really was; what they think of van der Sloot; and how the unresolved loss of their best friend traumatized them for years.
Her disappearance left her best friends from Birmingham's Mountain Brook High confused, angry and bereft.
I saved her last voice mail until a year ago, when it became just too hard to listen to. Natalee and her mom [Beth Holloway] were super close.
So Hooty Hoo Holloway came to Birmingham, and there was no beating around the bush with that girl. Once I asked her to get me a soft drink, and she looked at me like I'd asked her to run a mile. Beth was a speech pathologist and worked with children, and that sensitivity rubbed off.
That's really hard for me—I kind of want the years to stop.
I hold on to these dumb little images: the blond hair on her arms. CLAIRE: I can still hear her reading out loud, with great animation, while we were sunbathing on the deck at her lake house.
