GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Some of Laci Peterson's (search) closest friends are very angry with someone and it's not Scott Peterson. Joining us from Modesto, Lori Ellsworth, Renee Garza and Stacey Boyers. Welcome to all three of you. I appreciate you joining us.
Lori, let me ask you first. Who are you angry about, in terms of making money off this investigation and prosecution?
LORI ELLSWORTH, LACI PETERSON'S FRIEND: Oh, where do we start? I guess there's been a few different people that we've heard of selling photos, telling stories, you know, stuff that just isn't appropriate coming from -- not even coming from friends or family, but coming from strangers that didn't even know Laci.
VAN SUSTEREN: Lori, when you talk of selling stories, are you talking about the stories that have appeared in tabloids that Laci and Scott had a bad marriage? Is that the one?
ELLSWORTH: You know, one in particular that I can think of that I actually heard about and hadn't read until just recently was Laci's close friends talking about abuse in her marriage. And you know, we'd actually all like to know who that friend is because I'd like to think that all of us were very close with her and had no idea of any of this going on. So we'd like to know, you know, if that friend would like to come forward and at least contact us and let us know who this is and let us in on the secrets. You know, we had no idea.
VAN SUSTEREN: Stacey, let me follow up, then. Any sign of any abuse at all in that marriage?
STACEY BOYERS, LACI PETERSON'S FRIEND: No, none. They were a very loving couple.
VAN SUSTEREN: Stacey, do you think people are just making it up or the media's just making that stuff up?
BOYERS: You know, we don't know. We just hear these stories, and it's either from a close friend, family member. There's been photos of some of Amber's friends sold and -- you know, it's just disgusting to be a friend of Laci's and know Laci, she would be disgusted with these people that are making money from her death.
VAN SUSTEREN: Stacey, you raise Amber's name. What do you think of Amber?
BOYERS: I'm grateful that Amber came forward and did what she did.
VAN SUSTEREN: Do you think it was tough for her?
BOYERS: Oh, yes. It had to have been tough for her, but she did the right thing. She came forward.
VAN SUSTEREN: Let me go to Renee Garza. Renee, your thoughts about Amber?
RENEE GARZA, LACI PETERSON'S FRIEND: I think she was very brave to come forward. Look at the scrutiny she's received since she came forward. She was very brave.
VAN SUSTEREN: What do you think about someone trying to sell photographs of Amber?
ELLSWORTH: Disgusting. In all honesty, it really has nothing to do with this case, and for her to have to go through something like that, it's just not right. For people that don't have any idea what we have all gone through, what the family has gone through, and they're making money off of Laci's death because had this not happened, the pictures wouldn't be worth a cent.
VAN SUSTEREN: Lori, have you ever met Amber?
ELLSWORTH: I have met Amber.
VAN SUSTEREN: When did you meet Amber?
ELLSWORTH: I met her the first night of the press conference.
VAN SUSTEREN: And when you say the first night, are you talking about back in January, when she stepped forward?
VAN SUSTEREN: What do you think of her?
ELLSWORTH: I thought she was very, very courageous for coming forward. I thanked her.
VAN SUSTEREN: Stacey, have you met Amber?
BOYERS: Yes, I have.
VAN SUSTEREN: And did you meet her the same night, too?
BOYERS: Yes, I did.
VAN SUSTEREN: How did you guys happen to get together to meet that night?
ELLSWORTH: We actually asked if we could meet her and thank her for what she did.
VAN SUSTEREN: Was it hard to meet her, or were you interested in meeting her because she'd stepped forward?
ELLSWORTH: We just wanted her to know that she had our support and to thank her and let her know that we appreciated that she came forward.
GARZA: And that we had no bad feelings towards the relationship that she had because she didn't know. So when we spoke with her, we thanked her.
VAN SUSTEREN: And Stacey, how long did you talk to her?
BOYERS: Oh, God. I don't know. I left early, so I don't know how long you guys stayed.
ELLSWORTH: Not long. I mean, we had a brief conversation with her.
VAN SUSTEREN: What was her demeanor that night? I mean, how did she present herself to you?
ELLSWORTH: As everybody saw, I mean, she was shaken up, of course. I mean, that's not something that somebody wants to go through.
VAN SUSTEREN: Renee, did she talk about Scott at all or what she had gone through?
GARZA: No, not really. We didn't go into any detail. When we did speak with her, let her know that we appreciated her being brave and coming forward.
VAN SUSTEREN: Stacey, have any of you had any contact with Amber since that first night when she stepped forward?
BOYERS: No, I have not.
VAN SUSTEREN: Is there any reason why you guys haven't talked to her since then?
GARZA: Actually, at the time we were focusing on finding Laci. We were doing everything we could to put ourselves full force into doing whatever we could to help find Laci.
VAN SUSTEREN: Ted Rowlands, who was just on a moment ago, talked about some new information that's leaked out, that in the days following Laci's disappearance, that Scott had made a number of trips -- less than 10 -- to San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Marina area. Did any of you know that he was going up there?
BOYERS: No. Like Lori said -- I mean, in the beginning, we were all focused on finding Laci. And we really weren't watching Scott and watching what he was doing. Our main focus was to find Laci, and we weren't really keeping tabs on him.
VAN SUSTEREN: Stacey, you ever notice anything unusual about his behavior, acting differently or in a manner that you would think would be different from someone who simply had a wife missing after December 24?
BOYERS: No. I mean, I didn't pay much attention. I was there after work, and usually, he was gone by then. So I didn't have a lot of contact with him at the volunteer center. And then after the volunteer center closed, I didn't talk to him at all.
VAN SUSTEREN: Lori, any hard feeling about the media and how the media's covered this case?
ELLSWORTH: You know, the media has helped a lot. They really have. In the beginning, they were great. Everybody helped so much. The volunteers that I'm sure came from seeing everything on TV was fabulous. We couldn't thank the media more. It's been harder more recently.
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, it has been harder for everyone, but I certainly appreciate the three of you once again joining me. Thank you very much, Lori, Renee and Stacey.
