GOSSIP: Robyn Padgett of Crossroads Restaurant & Lounge Early Iowa

by Karen Hargraves

Robyn Padgett, owner of Crossroads Restaurant & Lounge in Early Iowa, appeared on Dateline NBC exposé on convicted murderer Tracey Richter. Robyn had less than complimentary things to say about Tracey’s ex-husband Michael. This brief statement is in accordance with generally accepted “Right of Reply” principles.

Unfortunately, Robyn Padgett is a notorious gossip. In a small town like Early Iowa, this can be quite anguishing for individuals who are targeted by emotional stalkers such as Robyn, particularly when they control social meeting places, such as hair dressers and bar owners…. this is one such case.

In the short time that Michael lived in early Iowa, he employed several local individuals to work as administrators in his business. One such individual, a young, out-of-town mother who had married a local farmer, became the subject of malicious gossip. Robyn had been spreading awful rumors that this young wife and mother was having an affair with the school superintendent.

Michael Roberts publicly rebuked Robyn Padgett for her gossiping.

In concern for  is employee’s reputation and her emotional welfare, Michael publicly rebuked Robyn for her gossip. This was very embarrassing for Robyn because she was apparently not accustomed to people standing up to her shenanigans.

As a consequence of Michael’s confrontation with Robyn, it appears she saw the interview with Dateline NBC as an opportunity to exact revenge against Michael by saying some very hurtful things during the show.
