More than a decade after 16-year-old Amy Fisher had a sexual relationship with a much-older car mechanic and shot his wife in the head, the onetime “Long Island Lolita” and Joey and Mary Jo Buttafuoco have agreed to appear together in a televised reunion.
All three have signed on for the appearance, which has yet to be sold to a network, television producer David Krieff told the New York Post for Monday editions.
“It’s time to just put it behind us,” Fisher, now 31, told the newspaper. “We played this all out in a public eye. It’d be interesting to let the public see the healing process at the end. They saw everything else _ why not let them see the final product?”
Joey Buttafuoco, who was jailed for statutory rape following the 1992 shooting, said he planned to ask Fisher to explain her actions.
“I’ve been asked about a million times by Mary Jo, ‘Why did Amy shoot me?’ I was never able to get that answer,” said Buttafuoco, now 49.
