Insightful email from one of the other cousins giving me an indication about her own mother, my aunt, who was a buddy of the mommybitch. In short, the woman was just as emotionally distant (perhaps abusive). And it further confirms the little cadre the mommybitch had around her who didn't give a damn about their kids.
I've said it before, but I'll say it again. Apparently, I'M not the one who was crazy.
Go figure that right now Sundance is running "Mommy Dearest" and the scene where atty Greg Savitt is fed up with her drunken verbal tirades, slaps her down and leaves her. lol..."mommybitch" could have used that!
