Michelle Parker is still missing, and her friends and family are rightly concerned.

The Florida woman went missing the day after appearing with her ex-fiance on 'The People's Court.' According to WPBF, Michelle Parker, a 33-year-old mother of three, disappeared a day after she and her ex-fiance had a case heard on the TV court show.

On the show, which was taped months ago but just aired one week ago, Parker's ex-fiance Dale Smith sued her for $5,000. In turn, she talked about their "tumultuous and violent" relationship, which she called "poison."

Now, according to People, her friend has released a statement in which she insists that Parker "would not voluntarily disappear."

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 31st 2010 3:00PM
Judge Marilyn Milian lays into a plaintiff for trusting a 22-year-old man with no money to pay rent on 'The People's Court' (weekdays, syndicated).

Milian harshly criticizes the plaintiff for counting on the young tenant to receive financial support from his family. "You are a 57-year-old adult and you ended up trusting that a 22-year-old, who has no money, would end up paying rent for six months, because you hoped he'd get it from his folks? I mean, that's just goofy. That's beyond goofy," she said.

Ten Minutes to Wapner! 'People's Court' Judge to Return for His 90th Birthday

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 6th 2009 11:42AM
He was the face of the daytime staple 'The People's Court' from its premiere in 1981 to 1993, and he's dusting off his gavel and robes for one more episode. The currently presiding judge of 'The People's Court, Marilyn Milian, will relinquish the bench to Judge Joseph A. Wapner on Friday, Nov. 13, as he hands down one more ruling in honor of his 90th birthday.

Wapner, who served on the bench for the LA County Superior Court for 18 years before retiring and dispensing justice on TV, was the first judge in a pantheon of notables who ruled on the long-running small claims court TV show, including Ed Koch from 1997 to 1999, Jerry Sheindlin from 1999 to 2001, and presently Milian.

Judge Wapner returning to The People's Court... for a day

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 5th 2009 10:32AM
wapner_the_peoples_courtThere's something sweet about birthday reunion celebration, and on Friday, November 13 -- defying all superstitions about Friday the 13th -- The People's Court will honor the original judge, Judge Wapner, on the show. Judge Marilyn Milian will move aside and the distinguished, no-nonsense Wapner will pick up the gavel one more time. Will Dustin Hoffman make a guest appearance? Gosh, I hope so.

Actually, it's Judge Wapner 90th birthday and he's getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (on November 12), so it just seemed appropriate to bring it full circle.
