Philip Garcia you do realize she was forced into the entertainment industry when she was a literal baby and her mother used her for money and fame. She ended up in a mental institution by the age of 13 strung out on alcohol and drugs because she was partying so hard in Hollywood. You obviously don’t know what she’s suffered at the hands of her neglectful parents:

I don’t think we, the viewers, truly grasp the HUGE amount of Jeanette is doing in our world right now just by speaking out. She is so authentic, so articulate, and just sharing her experiences resonates so much with so many of us who haven’t been able to speak our truths on nuclear family relationships and the dark side of some. She is so inspiring, and I wish I could meet her!

I started tearing up when Drew said Jeanette is going to be a good Mom if she decides to be one. My biggest fear is accidently causing harm to children because of my trauma. I love this conversation. ❤

I relate. I’m 45 and didn’t have kids because I didn’t want to do to them what my mom did to me. I’m in therapy now and feel like if I would’ve been healed earlier in life, things might’ve been different.

Start working on yourself now. I've been in therapy for the past 9 years to work on my trauma and to process everything that happened my whole childhood/teenagehood. I have a beautiful three year old little boy, and still have moments when I get triggered from my past. Sometimes he's the one that's triggering me and therapy gave me to coping skills and self awareness to recognize that and realize as well as the strength to walk away.

My kid watched iCarly. As a parent, I found it obnoxious at times, but I still laughed because Jennette and Miranda were really, truly, funny actors. Seeing Jennette all grown up, speaking so eloquently, is so inspiring. I hope she realizes that even though she was forced to be the paycheck for her family, she was and is so gifted. Listening to her speak, you realize that she has so many layers and talents that we've yet to discover. I feel so protective of her like a normal mother should. I wish her every happiness in the world!

Reading this memoir made me realize that some of the things my mom did growing up were major violations of my body and sexual boundaries and I have no idea what to do with that information. thank you Jennette for sharing your story and unlocking a conversation about mother daughter abusive relationships.
funnyimi 10 aylar önce
i feel you, it’s tough when your mom crosses those boundaries.. learning to say no for yourself (of course you might’ve already done this) is an amazing first step to healing all those times people crossed a boundary, because then you know for yourself that you have the tools to prevent them from doing it again and it is never your fault those things happened to you. we can’t choose what family we’re born into, but we can use it as an opportunity to grow (ugh i know that sounds so cheesy, and it’s totally okay to feel that what you’ve endured wasn’t fair, because it wasn’t !) we grow up with this idea of mothers being these perfect nurturing beings that we can never criticize, which makes it hurt all the more when they didn’t actually embody that. i wish you all the best on your healing journey and i hope my words aren’t triggering, i just relate to what you feel because i’ve been through it too ♥️

Coming from a relationship with an abusive mother... this talk really hits home. The guilt, the shame, the loss of a relationship you desperately want and don't want at the same time. I protected my mom for so long, for so long "being afraid to hurt her feelings" took precedent over my own feelings, being afraid of making her look bad, being ungrateful, etc... so much fear and shame to navigate just to come to terms with my own feelings. An abusive mother relationship is so hard to navigate. I went NC with mine, and it was really good for me, but it's still hard. You still miss them, even if they hurt you, you still desire the love of a mother even if she can't give it to you in a healthy way. The struggle is REAL. Hugs to you, ladies.

The conversation they had was so healing... the reason why they need comedy is because they recognize balance! Too dark is obviously very heavy. And comedic responses adds optimism in future thoughts. They both relate and im happy they found eachother. I'm also happy they're able to share eachothers therapeutic advice.

@Zoey R Unfortunately the opposite; Dan Scheneider (the creator of the show and a Nick exec who likely abused Jennette, though she's never directly given his name) would write in things that the actors were insecure about or having a difficult time with. For instance, he also made Jennette eat a ton of food on camera, even though she was very clearly dealing with an eating disorder

"If saying the truth ends a relationship, its probably a relationship that needed to end" AMAZING! love her, I wrote a fertility book last year and told the truth about my experience with sibling abuse, I shared in detail about the traumatic time I had at my brothers hand, I shared because as a fertility coach, I have had clients who only want one child and when we unpack the "why" of it, I uncover sibling abuse and the fear that they will create that same dynamic for their child. My brother saw the 1 page in the book where I talk about it and not only will he not speak with me, he has instructed my beloved niece and nephew (18 & 24) not to talk with me and he has threatened them saying "if you do talk with her, I will disown you" the cherry on the top of it all is that he told his childrenand wife that it was all a lie and never happened. So, there you go. I never had a good relationship with him, it has always been toxic, I am deeply grateful to both you and Jannette for sharing wisdom, I need to breathe and relax, and move on. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love, Donna

Finding the humor and love in the absurdity is the way to surviving it. These two can connect on such a soulful level. What a profound interview by 2 quality human beings who have been through the gauntlet yet they decided to be better than what was done to them. Continuously inspiring. ❤️

All the feels. Having 2 emotionally/verbally/mentally/physically abusive parents I 100% relate. It’s difficult to even tell my kids things about my childhood because they can’t believe their grandparents would ever be that cruel. And I never tell them the worst of it. I also married an abusive man. So all I’ve known my whole entire life is abuse. I don’t think I’ll ever truly heal because I’m so broken. And I’m old now.

Best interview ever! Drew and Jeanette really connected on a sad, but real life, experience. One, that so many of us, have also experienced. It's not easy discussing the trauma and terror you experienced as a child of a narcissistic, and troubled mother. But when you do meet someone who gets it, and who also went through it, you immediately feel a bond. And that title of her book. Priceless!* Amen!

I loved this conversation. Thank you both I came from a less than functional situation. I didn’t realize it wasn’t normal. When I began to realize something wasn’t right, I felt ostracized by my family for not understanding what a superstar of a mother I had . I found it difficult to have very close relationships when younger. How wonderful that you both can speak out publicly . I think if I had seen this conversation when I was younger, I probably would’ve made more progress more quickly. Thank you !

I love that Drew was engaging but gave room for her to speak her piece, ( peace😌) I love that Drew was able to relate to her in a way that she didn't feel like she was telling her story to someone who wouldn't be able to understand. And I especially love how clear you can see the connection between the two ladies. It was as if Drew was interviewing a younger version of herself who got it all right. I truly loved this interview.

After reading this book I was hoping Drew would interview her because they're both so emotionally intelligent and could relate. Crying through this interview, hope it was cathartic for them both.

Beautifully said! She has had a tougher road than most and it’s been clear for a while she was not treated well as a child by her mother (& potentially others).

Drew is so empathetic. It’s refreshing to see on tv. A real conversation without a scripted list of questions. 👍🏼

It makes me happy to see how absent Jennette is from social media and public appearances beyond interviews about her book, I think it takes a lot to have so much pressure on you from the public and still resolve to take that space for yourself. I'm glad we don't know what she's up to, but I really hope these two women have been able to privately connect and talk more since this interview. It's palpable just from watching how meaningful this conversation was for both of them

I can 100% relate to the feeling of being glad that someone is dead. My family has generational/historical trauma in it and my grandmother is getting older and we're kind of waiting for her to pass away as she was not only responsible for a LOT of abuse and neglect for my father and aunt, but she is also very isolated and her mind is starting to go. My close family have a lot of empathy for her even though she did horrible things to my father and aunt, but she also had a lot of awful things done to her mainly by her father while her mother enabled/turned away from the trauma. It's the feeling of relief that you know you will never have to see or talk to that person again, but also feeling empathy for that person in a way that is difficult to explain or understand if you don't have direct experience with it. My close family still visits my grandmother at least twice a year, but each time seems to get worse and worse. Generational/historical trauma can really break families apart.

The fact that Drew has gone through so much of what her guests have gone through really means that she understands so much more than a regular host

This is something that doesn’t get talked about enough and it’s amazing how many people have battled with this including me. I was asked by a therapist if I could hit a button and someone in my life would die without consequences, who would it be and I said my mum. I’ve learnt that my mum will never be the mum I wanted or anything like my friends mums.

Wow when Drew said “I don’t want to paint her negatively I don’t want people to think of her negatively but the truth is tough stuff” I got goosebumps. She articulated something I’ve always felt and never said aloud and never have heard anyone else validate. Thank you.

I love Drew so much because she asks questions so genuinely and with so much curiosity. she never comes across as just try to be the story. She is one of the few people I’ve seen that looks like she is just actually trying to connect with others and it’s so beautiful to watch. Love you Drew ❤

People who still can't tell their story admire these two women so much. So many powerful words in this interview, "if saying the truth ends a relationship then it's probably a relationship that needs to end". "Maybe it's protectiveness".

Jeannette saying 'shame is a useless emotion' was really eye opening for me. As I suffer from anxiety, re-living moments of 'shame' has always brought me down to a low point and makes my anxiety spiral, to the point where I've struggled to make relationships with people outside my family. I agree that I'd rather feel guilty than ashamed, I can face guilt without destroying my mental state.

I feel a very real sense of this on most of my adult life and quite a bit of it as I've grown up. The worst part is not being able to differentiate between the sense of those that you know do not deserve your time and how to establish the foundation to build your own self-worth back up. Most people that I've spoken with that have been contributors or just didn't view my life from the same lens, will tell me that I only read the situation to place myself as the victim. My biggest issue is not being able to read social scenarios well. I don't think that should place a child under scrutiny, especially when I'd get upset with myself whenever I didn't understand.

I would highly recommend reading Brene Brown's books or listening to her TED talks. She has done in-depth shame research, and her material is very HEALING! Focus on one thing today: make things about actions rather than internalizing the actions into an adjective for yourself. That's a big one for people who struggle with the weight of shame. I encourage you to see things in the future as an action...This is a simple example, but a good place to start is by thinking: I did ___badly...... FOCUS on that instead of saying *I* am bad (or whatever adjective that is tearing yourself down), because this incubates shame. I hope I could help a little bit and that I was able to help in some way. I hope you feel a little bit better each day going forward. 💞

I thought I was somewhat healed from my past with my Mom's and her demons but this interview has shaken me to my core. I am so grateful for Jennette, Drew and company for making twenty minutes of television that will go on and on and on, helping wake so many of us from the nightmares that haunt us still. I didn't know how much I needed this... A little afraid to read the book but I'm know I need it too. xoxo

I can imagine (as you alluded to) that it's been a long journey to get to a place of comfort and confidence in yourself to be able to do that. THANK YOU both for this...amazing testament to healing, and to helping each other - and celebrating each other - along the way. 💜

This was so cathartic for me to hear. I’m going through a lot with my own mother and her decisions and it’s so helpful to hear other women talk about their struggles admitting their mother was abusive in their own ways. Abuse isn’t always black and white or isnt always physical. I suffered years of mental and emotional abuse at the hands of my mom through the many poor decisions she made that led to my feelings of abandonment. I’m much happier now after telling her my peace. But for my sisters and brothers sake As well as my childrens I have to lead by example. That we cannot and will not allow it to continue to happen to the youngest ones.

Same, I have this same feeling with my mother. She grew up in the 70's in an immigrant household where daughters weren't appreciated and was disowned at 22 when she married my father. I feel that people can choose how to approach their trauma. They can either turn out to be a narcissist who continues their cycle of abuse on others, or they can become an empath who breaks the cycle and radiates love to others. My mother hid her trauma from us and created a loving home for us and for that I am forever grateful. (sorry for the long reply)

Sad to admit, but that's not true. There is also the other side. I know people from my personal circle who have missed so much love. And who now, as adults, act like big babies at the slightest quarrel. Who throw so much malice at the people around them. Seeing them demanding love but not knowing the meaning of "giving love" themselves.

Same with my father! My grandfather had passed when I was young, and he speaks respectfully of him, however doesn't hold back that his childhood relationship with him was very cold and they didn't really have much of one until he was grown. However, my dad is the most loving man I have met. He had always been so gentle to me as a child and I was surprised to learn how he had grown up being treated by his dad. Though I do have to say that he has said that my grandmother had enough love to give for the both of them. ❤️ Hugs to everyone impacted by a strained relationship with a caregiver, it's a real tough one.

This resonates, protecting your parents' image in therapy. In my 20's I refused to even speak about my childhood when asked by therapist. It took until my 40's to tell a therapist my mother was an alcoholic (it finally came out when exploring why my sister and I had both married alcoholics and dealing with my BIL's early death) and his response - why didn't you lead with that?

They had a very raw and honest conversation which is so nice to hear. Women don’t often speak about bad relationships with their mothers even tho I know soooo many of us have them. It builds this pent up, generational trauma that gets passed down unintentionally cause you don’t even recognize the behavior as abusive. Drew asked important questions, and Jenette gave powerful answers

This really hit hard, I had a very difficult relationship with my mom, the mother daughter love seemed very one sided mostly my side it seemed. She never hit me but the constant emotional abuse was just so heartbreaking, I didn't know what I did to deserve her treating me like she did. 😔

Yes! This was riveting to me. When Drew said something to the effect of wanting a relationship with your mother that not even society says you should have but that NATURE tells you should have blew my mind. I have always longed for that kind of relationship with my mother and a therapist said to me a few years ago that I need to start accepting that that relationship may never happen. These women having this particular conversation moved me today. Wow.
Sasa 11 aylar önce
I feel you all. When Drew said she felt the need to protect her mother it struck me cause I think a lot of people continue to make excuses for their mother’s poor behavior when they don’t deserve that protection. For so long everyone thought my mom and I had a close and happy relationship even tho she was abusive on many levels. I never spoke about it until I got to my 20s and it was so freeing to do so. I have accepted that I will never have a positive relationship with my mom, and I no longer allow her to destroy my life just because I feel like I owe her for giving birth to me. Self-mothering and building strong bonds with other women in my life has helped to fill that void. It’s a journey, and i’m sending a big warm hug to anyone who needs it 💞

Just want to say this for anyone having this struggle too, I saw a video of someone explaining its okey to admit your parent wasnt a good parent, it doesnt mean theyre a bad person just that they werent able to provide a healthy childhood for you. Really helped me feel less guilty for telling my mother how she made me feel and explaining my truth.

Me too! But, though I struggled with the relationship with my mom, I too thought that she would never change. She recognized her own behavior as toxic, and that it stemmed from her own childhood abuse, would admit her own faults, and actively sought therapy for her issues, and tried like hell to work on herself. Even though she did back-slide several times, and many times she didn't know if she could change, have a different mindset and truly be the kind of person, she's always wanted to be. She started her journey of healing in her late 20's, when she was able to understand that she had trauma from the abuse she suffered in her childhood and was also physically abusing her own children, because she wasn't shown another way of disciplining. But she knew deep down that, hitting her children with a belt every time we misbehaved, was absolutely WRONG! It's taken years and years to unpack all that baggage! She's 64 now, has 4 adult children, 9 grandchildren, 2 cats, 2 dogs, and a husband who loves her in every way possible! She's finally able to know, understand and love the amazing person SHE truly IS! Yes, she's been damaged. Yes, she's messed up a lot, made wrong choices, but that's NOT who she is, but what she'd done. It took her a long time to come to know, understand and love the person she is. and she's still working on herself every single day..... I'm so proud of her! She not only saved her own life, but all of ours too! I have no idea how our family's lives would be right now, had she never taken those first few steps towards unlocking her potential.... I'm just so grateful she did!

I am honestly so glad that this topic of child abuse and its aftermath is being talked about. I have my own experiences with it, and growing up felt as if no one could ever possibly resonate with what I was thinking and feeling. So, to have people like Jennette and Drew speak freely, really makes me feel understood! It`s nothing to be ashamed of nor feel guilty about!
