they seem to adore him. and, yes, that conversation may very well have taken place but apparently it did not clear the slate for courtney. also, who else do they have besides him and each other. he cut them off from natalie's family. they don't have a maternal relationship with jill. they were raised by willie-mae, their nannie. natalie provided the funds to have willie-mae remain with the kids and raise them. wagner's fans believe that took care of that...not so...hell, natalie even paid for her own funeral.
as far as what the girls believe, i have a feeling that we might hear more after he dies. if she were my mother i would have some deep resentment for him and not because of how she died but because he has not shown her the respect that she was and is due. he has been the epitome of selfishness...but i know people who have been in contact with him, met him, crewed films that he worked on, he is not at peace. he smiles that big, phony smile but behind it is torture. that is how a friend of mine described him after being around him, "tortured"...i imagine he lives with tremendous guilt, as well he should.
