It’s because she’s forgiven herself and it shows. The more you heal, the less you become defensive because you’ve already had that conversation with yourself. It shows how big of a person she is. I am so proud of her and I don’t even know her.

I love the title of the book. Nothing shocking about it. Her mother was abusive in so many different ways and was money hungry. She exploited her daughter for personal gain and benefit. No mother like that deserves respect. Jenette has gone through so much suffering at the hands of her mother, and that little bit of relief that came from her death was probably a breath of fresh air as it signaled the end of the abuse and manipulation.

I am so glad she is sharing her story so that children of abuse don't feel alone and can see that we can heal and get past that pain.

This book rides a train through all the PC! This is her experience and that must be respected. Being British I hadn't heard of her before, but if this signals the end of all those books detailing how beautiful everything is then I am RIGHT behind it! I recently saved the life of an ex-girlfriend who attempted suicide as a result of long-term abuse from her own mother, and the biggest problem I believe is that she felt that as a result of social conventions she had NOBODY to talk to about it, because from the outside... Her family LOOKED perfect! So... TALK people, bash down doors and start talking, remember a covered pot boils quick!!! Best wishes from a French forest. 🙏🌞🇬🇧

It's a very moving and painful book. As someone with parents and other family members who have NPD, it was even healing for me to read it. She's truly a talented writer with so much insight and power. I feel so much pride for her and a certain siblinghood from a stranger who's been through similar things. She really put the work in therapy, resilience, her former jobs, survival and into crafting her art. Very happy for her.

@Haley Gilbert you should read the book. The abuse is actually worse than the interviews and headlines make it seem(probably because they don’t want to get demonitzied for being so explicit). If you read the book you understand why she wouldn’t have recovered from her disorder with her mom still alive. Her mom made her emotionally and mentally co-dependent on her in every way.

@Lagoonagoon I felt that way because I believe she could've combated her disorder if her mother were still alive. I truly still feel that way and once her intial anger toward her mom goes away I thought that maybe she'd regret titling her book that way. It's been 6 days since I wrote that comment though and I see things a bit differently now. I realized that Jenette became incredibly famous for something she didn't want to be famous for all because of her mother... Welp! Now her mom is famous for something she wouldn't want to be famous for too lol I see this is an equal medium. I'm okay with this title now 👍

Jennette is one of the most gifted, charming young actresses to ever make it in television. Very, very unusual brilliance and wit, when you come right down to it. And a beautiful, youthful energy. She elevated her Nickelodeon shows to such a high level of wit and artistry. And her co stars were completely exceptional too.   It breaks my heart that she was suffering the way that she was. Thank you to those of you reading this who love her; thank you for supporting her right now. I cannot even imagine how tough these interviews must be for her. I can sense that there's a part of her heart that is really hurting right now. She's so brave.   We love you, Jennette.

I am so happy to see Jennette like this. She looks so happy and calm, she truly has healed. As a person who struggles with their own mental health issues this gives me so much hope that maybe one day I can be at peace as well. Opening up about things that make you feel embarrased or scared isn't an easy thing but facing them is the only way to cope. A few years ago she said she's done with acting but now she's considering it. THAT shows growth. I'm glad to see she's getting the love and attention she deserves and even if we might not see her on screen, just knowing that she's doing well is enough.

She’s so right about the title. If you were abused you don’t think this is a shocking title. You get the dark humor and the reality of the relief. I just hope she’s truly at a point with her ED that’s as healthy as she wants to be. As someone who struggles with an ED they never go away, they just flare up or become quieter and I do see some warning signs and worry for her. I look forward to this book and I’m so happy she is able to put a book out. I wish she could speak to Dan schnieders sexual abuse of the girls like Amanda bynes and her and the foot fetish stuff.

While I have a great relationship w my Mom, as soon as I saw the book title, I felt happy for those who would "feel seen" by that title. So many associate mothers with "maternal perfection" but some have unspeakable trauma associated with their mothers...and, for them, again, I'm glad they can feel seen and maybe gain the courage to share their own stories 💛

@Omonouso So, are we not going to pretend she potentially risks losing her job if nobody believes her? Or the hate and ridicule that comes along with it? Saying she isn't silenced is like pointing a gun at someone's head and telling them they have a choice whether or not to give you money. They technically have a choice, but that's all it is

When we were kids we looked up to Sam for her loyalty as a friend and her unabashed wacky antics. Now as adults we can look up to Jennette for shedding light on a tough topic of parental abuse and how to heal from it. For anyone upset by the title then your relationship with your parent must have been good. For those who suffered abuse of any kind mental or physical at the hands of a mom or dad it's a relief to have them gone from this Earth. As someone who just lost their mother who was mentally abusive and toxic I resonate so much with how she describes her feelings surrounding her mom's death. This person hurt you so why do they deserve your grief after what they've done. Yet at the same time that was your parent they gave you life and on some level cared for you.

She is a smart, intelligent, thoughtful young woman who has obviously lived a life of pain. I hope her career as an actress is not over. She has so much talent to show the world. I truly wish her love and happiness in her life. Losing a mother so young is hard for anyone so she is grieving in her own way. No two people grieve the same and after all she has been put through I'm just glad she is clean, sober and sane. Not all child stars recover just look at Dana Plato.

She’s so right about the title. If you were abused you don’t think this is a shocking title. You get the dark humor and the reality of the relief. I just hope she’s truly at a point with her ED that’s as healthy as she wants to be. As someone who struggles with an ED they never go away, they just flare up or become quieter and I do see some warning signs and worry for her. I look forward to this book and I’m so happy she is able to put a book out. I wish she could speak to Dan schnieders sexual abuse of the girls like Amanda bynes and her and the foot fetish stuff. The creator is Dan Schneider.

I don't think we should speculate on her ED. She says she hasn't engaged in any disordered behavior for years and I believe her.

Having grown up with an abusive stepdad and having been abused by my first dad but with no memory of it yet the damage is still there, from it I can only speak from my own experience but I think what Jeanette is doing is admirable and if what she’s doing is healing for her own spirit in her own way then more power to her, because everyone grieves in their own way and everyone heals and comes to terms with their damage in their own way, and I don’t have any criticism whatsoever to her choice in naming the book or writing the book or anything like that because it is none of my damn business. I just wish her all the best and if this is how she feels she needs to heal then I think that’s fantastic, but in terms of her choice naming the book it is none of my business and it is not my place or anyone’s place to give judgment or accusation, especially when they’re not in her shoes
