I am a firm believer of the old adage, "Let credit be given where credit is due."
Seems that Robert Charlton, the PI who sat outside Kimmer/Heidi Diaz's apartment for God knows how long and filmed her in all her glory, was not given credit by TV station KTLA or the Mike & Juliet Show for his film of Heidi that was shown during their recent television broadcasts. Now, that's just wrong.

Out of the Loop RE: KimKins/Heidi Diaz
Well, it has been a couple of months since I last posted regarding the KimKins diet scam. I have been watching from outside the box and have noticed that I have been left out of the loop on important issues.
The morning Show with Mike and Juliet in New York called and asked if I would be available to fly out and join in the show that aired a couple of weeks ago. I was asked to send the video of Heidi in advance for editing purposes and did so with the stipulation that they show the credits with my business and personal name. I waited for the call back with flight instructions and accommodations. They never called back and aired the show without me. I did not notice any credit given to my name, just the business name with no location and it was only shown on the fist clip they aired for a couple of seconds. The other clips that were shown did not show credit to our company or my name.
Just last week, Chip Yost at KTLA put a piece together showing a taped deposition of Heidi Diaz. the piece included the video that I had obtained of Heidi Diaz and did not show credit to myself or my business.
So it goes. I guess I should have hired a PR person to make certain that myself and business name be included in the airing of a national piece such as this.
On another note, I was browsing the Blogs and found a posting from the person that hired my company to locate Heidi Diaz and obtain the photos that broke the story. Catherine McDonald is a very kind person and has commented a little on the reasons for hiring my company. Catherine is a very smart and intuitive person to have come up with the idea of hiring an investigator on her suspicions that Heidi was a fraud, and to do so using the bartering system. Catherine created our company web-site, the one that I had prior to the new web-site lacked in a lot of areas, including search engine friendly capabilities. If you are looking for someone to create and host your web-site, I highly recommend simplybrilliantsolutions.com"
