19 years later, Mary Kay Letourneau's shocking affair with her thirteen-year-old student is still generating headlines.
In anticipation of Mary Kay's 10th wedding anniversary with her now husband and former student, Vili Fualaau, Barbara Walters interviewed the scandalized teacher in what we'd describe as nothing less than astonishing.

While Letourneau and Fualaau consider themselves an average couple with two teenage daughters, most of the public is still trying to understand how a 34-year-old woman could engage in a sexual and emotional relationship with a sixth grader.
In a very matter of fact way, the Washington state resident opened up about the bizarre couple's first sexual encounter, revealing:
"The incident was a late night, and it didn't stop with a kiss. And I thought that it would, and it didn't."
Wow. We're pretty speechless!
When Mary Kay was asked if she felt any remorse or guilt over the initial encounter, the former teacher responded:
"I loved him very much, and I kind of thought, 'Why can't it ever just be a kiss?'"
Hmm. While we can't wrap our heads around how this relationship, it's fascinating to hear the mother's thought process behind her actions.
