Independent Investigative Journalism and Commentary from New Orleans, LA
So sad. No wonder she drowned her misery in drugs. I hope she does not have any kids.
That is a sick, painful and sad story. It is disturbing that some of the stories call that abusive situation "an affair", which supports the abuser's idea that it was some sort of romance. Kids are not responsible, not even a little bit responsible, for any of it when someone abuses them. That poor woman has been having one sort of breakdown or recovery her whole life, and we all remember how smart and talented she started out. I hope she's healing. Going on Oprah is an odd way of healing; it seems a little self-exploiting. But secrets are part of the intergenerational pattern of abuse, and so is denial. Maybe if you come from famous people, going on a talk show is the right scale of silence- breaking for your community. I hope she gets whatever she needed to get emotionally from that Oprah experience, and it would be nice to see her return to doing some acting work. She was once pretty good. Maybe getting back to work would be a better way to heal than Oprah? She's still letting her past define her and how she lets herself be known.
All I know is -- I wish I could un-know this.
