Hidden camera's hit-man video reads like reality TV, and was

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A secretly recorded conversation between newlywed Dalia Dippolito and Widy Jean, an undercover Boynton Beach officer posing as a hit-man went viral in 2011 after the reality TV show "Cops" aired their take on her case. Dippolito maintains that she was just acting the part of a murderous spouse as part of an ill-conceived scheme to win a role on a reality TV show. The video will again be key evidence as she faces a new murder trial in May. Here are excerpts of the 23-minute conversation:

JEAN (off-camera, in the driver's seat): "Are you sure you want to kill this dude?"

DIPPOLITO (swallowing laughter): "Do we really have to? I would rather be less, whatever, about the deal."

(Jean changes the subject, asking questions about their home alarm system).

DIPPOLITO (nervously smoothing her hair): "So how are we going to do it at the house? Like, how do we, how soon could you do it, what time are we looking at?"

JEAN: I could do it Wednesday morning, Wednesday morning at the house. Because I was looking at news, newspapers here, there's been a lotta burlgaries in this area …"

DIPPOLITO (nodding her head affirmatively): "Right."

JEAN: "… it's not uncommon for someone to break into a house, OK? So it's going to be like I break into the house, didn't think he was going to be home cause everyone works in the daytime…

DIPPOLITO (nodding again): "Right."

JEAN: "… and he's not at work, and he gets two in the head. That's it. You know. And I take a couple things with me, break a couple windows, make it look like a robbery that went bad, and it's all over."

JEAN: "Police are going to be asking you questions. … I don't know how well you handle pressure. You understand? Cause I don't want …"

DIPPOLITO (nodding her head): "No, I'm not gonna, you know, I'm a lot tougher than what I look. I know you see me and you like go, 'What a cute little girl' or whatever." (nervous laughter) "But I'm not. I'm not, no…"

JEAN: "You're beautiful."

DIPPOLITO: "I'm not, no, thank you, but I just want to make sure everything gets taken care of."

JEAN: "If it's done, by Wednesday, the only thing you're gonna hear from me is to collect. Alright? Which is why, I say that from now to when it's done, you're not going to have an option to change your mind. Even if you change your mind, you know …

DIPPOLITO (shaking her head negatively): "No, there is no changing. There is no – I'm determined already. (nodding vigorously now). I'm positive, like 5,000 percent sure."
