Actress Jennette McCurdy Says She’s Glad Her Abusive Mother Died
Actress Jennette McCurdy recently appeared on “Red Table Talk” where she shared a vicious email her mother wrote to her.
McCurdy opened up in an interview with Willow Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith about the abuse she endured from her mother and the realization that she had to distance herself from her. McCurdy admitted that the trauma had greatly affected her personal relationships.
“Dear Net, I am so disappointed in you. You used to be my perfect angel, but now you are nothing more than a little S**T, A FLOOZY, ALL USED UP,” her mother wrote in the email.
Viewers could see the email on the screen as McCurdy read it aloud. “She sent me many scathing emails, just telling me exactly how disapproving she was,” McCurdy added.
The comments referred to one of McCurdy’s relationships, in which she and her then-boyfriend ‘ran away to Hawaii,’ according to the email. “And to think–you wasted it on that hideous OGRE of a man. I saw the pictures on a website called TMZ–I saw you in Hawaii with him. I saw you rubbing his disgusting hairy stomach,” the email read.
McCurdy’s mom went on to belittle and disparage her daughter in writing.
“I KNEW you were lying about Colton. Add that to the list of things you are–LIAR, CONNIVING, EVIL. You look pudgier, too. It’s clear you’re EATING YOUR GUILT,” the email said as McCurdy’s emotional, mental, and physical state all came under attack at the same time.
Her mother’s words grew crueler as the email continued.
“Thinking of you with his ding dong inside of you makes me sick. SICK. I raised you better than this. What happened to my good little girl? Where did she go? And who is this MONSTER that has replaced her?” McCurdy said, reading the email. “You’re an UGLY MONSTER now. I told your brothers about you and they all said they disown you just like I do. We want nothing to do with you.”
McCurdy said she now realizes just how abusive her mother was, and she’s finding strength in overcoming the trauma. “I was hearing for the first time how unhealthy my mom was,” McCurdy said. “I would believe what she said about me, I would believe I’m a slut, I’m a floozy,” McCurdy added.
The actress is opening up about her relationship with her mother after the release of her new memoir, “I’m Glad My Mom Died.”
