Tara Lambert says that after repeatedly being dragged to court by her husband’s ex, Kellie Cooke, she decided to send Cooke a message to not mess with her family anymore. She says she enlisted the help of a former high school acquaintance, Ginny, whom she asked to make a threatening phone call to Cooke. Ginny claims that after the phone call, Lambert contacted her through Facebook offering to pay someone to “take care of our problem.”
