When Barry was asked to be on the Bravo TV show, Elizabeth says: “It was the only time in the history of our four-year relationship that Barry Williams actually came to me and asked me -- before he made some kind of response -- how I felt about it... He recognized he would be accepting money for perpetuating a lie because he has a longtime girlfriend and everything.

“And our counselor even said well ‘Barry it seems like a conflict of interest you guys are talking about a reality show about the two of you -- you’ve been together for four years and then there’s this other show where you’re pretending to be an eligible bachelor.’" When reached by, the Millionaire Matchmaker publicist said “I have no comment about a celebrity version of the show.”

Kennedy says she was thrown out of Barry’s condo a few months later -- two weeks before Christmas. She said she received no personal explanation from the man who played Greg Brady in the popular 70s TV show, instead she was given a legal letter by Greg’s attorney. In court papers, however, he claims she was wielding a knife and withdrew more than $29,000 from his ATM.

For the first time: Kennedy answers the charges point by point only for

She says the knife wielding comments are completely fabricated. “I’m not crazy,” she says. “I’ve never threatened anybody I’ve never been violent. I’ve been completely wounded. I’ve been completely devastated by the person I loved. More than anybody or anything.”

As for the ATM charges, she says they are true: "There were certain financial disputes that we had. I didn’t think they were out of the ordinary from any dispute that any couple has. He says she spends a little too much money. She says he’s a little too uptight. Does that sound so unrecognizable to anybody?"

She says the fear of a palimony suit may have prompted him to make the allegations:

“I think it’s a way to vilify me. I think If I’m the villain, if I’m the bad guy if I’m the horrible person and the guy who played Greg Brady is a saint, then nobody notices the horrible way he treated the woman who put her life on hold for four years to be by his side.”

And Elizabeth makes some claims herself. She says at night Barry would drink and say horrible things to her, but the next morning he was back to himself returning to being “the man I love.”

Barry’s manager could not be reached for comment.

Elizabeth, who is trying to put her life back together and is now managing a salon says, “I think that every thing was done preemptively I think he knew that I had every right to go after palimony.”

Does she think she deserves palimony? “I think I deserve the respect of a decent transition.”

She won’t say whether she’s filing for palimony, but she finds it hard to believe that Barry broke up with her over money.

“Could this be I just don’t really want to believe it could be about money, because that would make him a terribly shallow and superficial person."

Elizabeth spoke to on the eve of her 31st birthday – it was her way of achieving an emotional cleansing, she said.
