Haven't been following the Arias case that closely, but from what I've read she too is a pathological liar.

Here's a thought...Could you imagine if her, Casey Anthony and Van Der Sloot were at the same table? There may not be one honest thing said in the conversation

That would be something. I sure would like to be a fly on that wall. Or maybe not

Perhasp because S-E-X = ratings?
+1 I haven't really kept up with this trial but from the little bit I've heard and read, it seems to be making headlines due in part to the X rated testimony.

Also, the horrendous manner of the killing. Arias stabbed ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander 29 times--starting when he was naked & vulnerable in the shower as she was taking "Calvin Klein"-type photos, 9 stabs on the back, slit his throat as he crawling down the hallway, then dragged his body back into the shower, where she shot him in the head with a 25 calibre handgun--per the state's theory.

She originally that she was even in Arizona, but when later faced with photos that she thought she had deleted from the photo shower shoot were recovered from the camera, and proved that she WAS in fact there--with date and time stamps--she changed her story and admitted she was there, but that .

That proved to be a lie too. Now, on trial, she claims she was a victim of physical and sexual abuse by Travis--which is why most of that "sex" testimony has come in--and BTW that he was also a pedophile. Virtually all ringside pundits believe those DV abuser and pedo claims are lies designed to paint victim Travis in the most unfavorable light. (Earlier, she had tried to get into the Court record letters she claimed had been written by Travis, to her, in which he admitted to being a pedo. Forensics proved them to be forgeries.) She now claims that during the shower photo shoot, she accidentally dropped the camera a couple of feet--which was Travis's brand-new camera, and that this got the naked Travis into such a murderous rage that he body-slammed Jodi and threatened to kill her. She got away, found a gun, and yada yada yada.

Jodi Arias faces the death penalty for the cruel way she killed Travis. She now admits killing him, Story #3, but in self-defense, and has testified that she was in a fog and has no memory whatsoever of stabbing Travis 29 times and slitting his throat from ear-to-ear down to the spinal cord after shooting him. Pundits say this "no memory/fog" is a convenient excuse, because if she did remember the incident, she would have to explain detail-by-detail, moment-by-moment, each and every one of the 29 stabs and throat slit to support her affirmative self-defense claim.

Then there are all sorts of pre-meditation facts, to support the Murder 1 charge, too many to mention (you have just got to view YouTube videos of the trial so far)--including gas cans Arias carried in her trunk--that are SO fascinating to those of us who are following this trial. (Me, mostly from a professional POV, as I worked in this field in my past life before I ER'd.)

Currently, the trial is at the stage where the Prosecutor & defense are asking follow-up questions to the jury's 200-plus questions. (Arizona is one of three states where the law mandates that the jury can ask their own questions of witnesses.)

The trial has definitely engendered a lot of passion on Twitter. Trial continues tomorrow with Arias back on the stand, as the Prosecutor continues grilling her. (I follow the online stream here.)
