Damn mothers that don't care about their children, I wish you all rot in hell. 😡

After all the surgeries that demi moore and courtney cox have had, they look like sisters.
Jamie Utitus
Jamie Utitus:
Diane Sawyer sits and speaks like she’s interrogating El Chapo!?
Fuuuuuuuuck. All my respect to her. Money and fame don’t matter when you’re hurting from a painful childhood
Parents who pimp their children: the lowest of the lowest.

Great interview. They're just people like the rest of us, with needs and heartaches.
Demi has to be one of the most beautiful women ever. She's stunning...still!
Crystal Grose
Crystal Grose:
This is so heartbreaking. When we look at people, we never know what they have gone through.
Michele Ellis
Michele Ellis:
She was so beautiful and now she looks really good for 56. She has a lovely voice.
Derek Boyt
Derek Boyt:
The emptiness and hurt one receives in childhood is lifelong. Few people can discard it and fill the void that is created; however, some can find a way to manage the impact and become successful. It sounds like Bruce had a personality that blended well with her and made things somewhat balanced; I suspect that the children were / are angry at her for her behavior towards him after the split. The good news is that nothing is EVER permanent - change is ALWAYS occurring and WE all have a choice... :-)
M L:
I feel her pain when she tries to rationalize her mother’s betrayal. I now have so much respect for Demi. She has been dealing with her pain all this time, just like many of us.
Mimi Rogers
Mimi Rogers:
My mother pimped me out to her realtor at age 14 to avoid paying the commission. I feel ya, Demi. Its a hard thing to recon with.
Sab B

How could a mother sell her child it’s heart breaking
Carole A
Carole A:
*Didn't think DeMI and DEmi shared so much more than names and looks but also monsters* .
Debra Poston
Debra Poston:
I personally wonder if she ever found out who her biological father was/is...…...
It's interesting how money doesn't buy happiness and I may not be rich but I did grow up in a stable household and that has helped me have a great life so far.
Monique Ayala
Monique Ayala:
I can’t believe her mother did that to her. She can rationalize it however makes it easier for her, but her mother sold her.
N. Carroll
N. Carroll:
"The things that almost break you can give you courage." (I love that.)
Yes, it is very sad to hear this, however, being Demi Moore makes it a lot easier to deal with things,No money can’t make you happy, but when you have it and have the personal satisfaction of acquiring it it makes life a lot easier than the average girl
James Farrington
James Farrington:
I have so much respect for her. I was a victim of the catholic church as a kid. Then became a delinquent in my teens, in and out of group homes. Then in my 20's I tried to act the part of an adult, but dealt with all my insecurities and anxieties with alcohol and drugs. Anyways now at age 31 I have one year sober, and my life has already drastically improved. Again, much respect to Demi.

Demi Gave us lots of joy : St Elmo’s Fire, ghost, a few good men , GI Jane and on and on ❤️
Kitten Bo
Kitten Bo:
I remember the stories about her being pimped out by her own mother. I'm so glad she made it, regardless of all the adversity, and despite her own childhood, she turned out to be an amazing mother and wife. I hope she finds someone who appreciates her. She deserves happiness, and being able to grow old with someone who loves her.
Andrea Talbot
Andrea Talbot:
I can relate to Demi. People need to not judge unless they walk in someone’s shoes
Morgan Berner

I used to think that she was another weird actress who did drugs. But hearing this, I am stunned! I can’t imagine living with that trauma and pain. Great that she’s sharing her story!

Sajjad Mehal
Sajjad Mehal:
When a person's called a "star" all too often what they really are is a survivor
Demi Moore is a survivor, she found a way out, despite her mother. Good for her.
Angela P

Kimmy wimmy
Kimmy wimmy:
Really Demi?! You going to include your making out with a very young looking teenage boy when you’re in your 20s? There’s video of it. Sick, twisted. Bet none of that is in your book.

Wow! I remember watching her on the big screen as a child. .never thought she's been through so much. .she deserved all the success she got! What an amazing life journey. God bless her.
“So incredibly raw” is also known as real life:) those things happen in the reality every day, does anyone care if they are not famous?
Gail Albers
Gail Albers:
i think it is relevant when a woman talks about the things that were done to her-because she is famous people listen to her - next we have to start watching out for each other, famous or not.
