According to her media always chases her but she is willing to enjoy and live her life happily ignoring media and everyone who tries to make her remember about her past regrets.

In her late thirties, she is still recognizable but she keeps herself away from the limelight since her second marriage and having twin children.

She friend stated that everybody wants to contact her to learn more about her story. But she is not interested to become a headline again. She is just interested to live her life happily as a mom and a wife.

In her trial period, Lafave stated that she is very regretful for her actions and she also offered her deep and regretful sorry to the young boy with whom she had sex also from his family. According to her friend, he never tried to break her sorry again and she changed completely. She is entirely a new person now.

She also told the magazine that she never makes excuses for her act for which she was punished she always owned her notorious act and its consequences. She stated that if it is possible to reverse back the time; she would never do it again. She understands that her act was very shameful and it created a lot of problems for her. It was not just an act that gave a negative message to society but she also hurt many other people badly through this act and she is still regretful for her actions.
