Amanda Conner’s Appearance on Jerry Springer

Amanda Conner appeared on Jerry Springer on October 29, 2010, and went by the name “Mandi.” According to Jerry’s synopsis before bringing her on stage, Mandi just learned that her best friend was sleeping with her boyfriend.

When she came out, Mandi shared that she and her boyfriend had been together “on and off” since the time she was 13. The now 20-year-old said that she was trying to make things work with her man, Jesse. However, she had made a big mistake recently.

“Two months ago, we broke up because he was smothering me. I moved to Florida and I made a mistake. I got married and divorced within the same month,” she shared with Jerry and the audience. The host said that it seemed like it could be reasonable for her boyfriend to move on, considering she’d left and gotten married. Although it was her best friend, it didn’t seem unfair.

“Not with my man. I’m the boss of him. He doesn’t sleep with nobody but me,” a possessive Amanda replied. “Even when I’m married to someone else.”

Amanda then proceeded to tell the audience that she returned to get Jesse back, but then she found out that he slept with her best friend. Of course, in true Jerry Springer style, her best friend joined her on the stage.

The two women almost immediately started fist-fighting on stage. Cursing at each other, Amanda and her friend had to be held back by security from the show.

When Jesse appeared on stage, things took yet another turn. “I’m not allowed to be with nobody when we’re not together? It seems unfair on my part. You treat me like s**t,” he told Amanda. The two women came to blows a few more times before Jesse and Amanda left together.
