Jennette McCurdy has revealed an extremely shocking, and very disturbing email that she received from her late mother Debbie, who the actress describes as “abusive” in her new book ‘I’m Glad My Mom Died’.
Jennette sat down with ‘Red Table Talk’ hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield Norris, to discuss her memoir and delve a bit deeper into the experiences she faced growing up with a narcissistic mother.
The former Nickelodeon actress began reading the email to the hosts, who were stunned by the first sentence.
“I am so disappointed in you,” Jennette began.
“You used to be my perfect little angel, but now you are nothing more than a little SLUT, a FLOOZY, all USED UP,” Jennette continued, emphasising her mother’s use of “all caps”.
The email goes on to reference leaked photos of Jennette’s private relationship at the time, 'To think you wasted it on that hideous ogre of a man. I saw the pictures on a website called TMZ. I saw you rubbing his disgusting hairy stomach.”
“Add that to a list of things you are: liar, conniving, evil.'
Jennette continues, “You look pudgier, too. It’s clear you’re eating your guilt. Thinking of you with his ding-dong inside of you makes me sick. Sick! I raised you better than this.”
At this point, all three women around the table were gobsmacked at the lack of care and amount of disrespect already included in the email.
I just don’t understand how you could direct such foul language and anger towards anyone, let alone your own daughter.
Jennette continued reading the email revealing that her mother asked where her “good little girl” had gone, adding, “who is this monster that has replaced her?”
“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.”
The email concluded, “P.S. Send money for a new fridge; ours broke.”
P fkn S? Is that some kind of joke? There’s no way that after claiming to disown her, she seriously believed that she was entitled to some kind of financial support.
Our reaction was exactly the same as host Willow, who jumped back in her seat saying, “It’s the P.S that gets me.”
Of course, Jennette’s memoir goes into more detail about her relationship with her mother Debbie, as well as her toxic working environment at Nickelodeon, but from this email alone, it’s clear that Jennette has experienced disgusting treatment from those who should have treated her with unconditional love.
