I’ve been a bridesmaid. I’ve been a maid of honor. I can personally attest that it completely sucks. You have to spend a fortune on a dress that, despite claims otherwise, you will never wear again. You have to attend multiple pre-wedding functions that, unless you are related to the bride, are full of boring people that you aren’t even related to. But when you finally get to the reception, most of your duties are over and you can finally let loose a little, right? Or, if you are this woman named Amanda Willis, you let go pretty hard.
Dis-Honor Willis made it through the ceremony of her friend Jennifer Butler in Charlotte County, FL without incident, but when it came time to party, Willis went all in. According to witnesses, Willis downed almost an entire bottle of Fireball and then decided she wanted to leave. Unfortunately, her method of departure was grabbing the best man’s keys out of his pocket and attempting to steal his car, almost hitting him in the process. Guests were able to wrestle her out of the car, so Amanda decided to head back into the reception, knock back a bottle of Captain Morgan, and start hitting wedding guests. Deputies were called at that point and Willis was taken away, but her day ‘o fun didn’t stop there; according to PIX11, “They took her to Bayfront Punta Gorda [a local hospital], where she exposed herself to deputies, assaulted two medics and kicked over her bed pan, according to the sheriff’s office.”
Now, if I’m honest, I’ve been a shot or two away from losing my shit in a $400 pink chiffon confection, but I’ve managed to contain myself for the sake of the friendship. Sadly, Butler told the station that her and Willis’ friendship didn’t survive, but looking at Willis’ history – this is her ninth arrest – I’ve got to question Butler’s judgment in making dear Amanda her MOH to begin with. It’s doesn’t matter how expensive it is, you can’t disguise crazy with a bridesmaid’s dress, and you definitely don’t invite crazy to stand up for you on your big day. .
