    I hope God helps her. That's such a heartbreaking thing to endure, as I'm about to go into college and dealing with controlling parents now.

    @ Lisa

    Good luck, Lisa. The opportunities for growing that college life brings should help to 'dilute' the hold your parents have over you - at first in the way you experience that hold, and then eventually the stronger you become, the less likely that control freaks will choose you to 'anchor' in.


    Sounds to me like her parents caused her so-called mental illness in the first place. Having had dysfunctional parents myself I feel desperately sorry for her.

    @ TeeCee

    Then my ass must be as crazy as a shit house rat because I most certainly come from a dysfunctional family myself!

    @ Dartanion

    Yeah dart- and if nothing else let's blame that on the rising of the freaking sun. How's about i get you some hot chocolate and cookies- would that make your little hurt feelings feel better?

    @ Dartanion

    Different people are affected in different ways, but I can tell you that dealing with a control freak in close family is one of the biggest challenges life can throw at you. They get right inside your head.


    This young woman needs empathy and compassion....she does after all have a mental illness. Anyone who dares make light of that obviously have no clue of what it's like to deal with that particular illness. My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family. Hope she gets well.


    oh boo hoo, grow up you rich spoiled over glamourized brat.

    @ wendywoo44

    Clearly you've never dealt with someone who is mentally ill OR a controlling parent(s). MANY celebs have had similar situations & all those that come to mind have had SOME sort of trouble, most legal/drugs. Mental illness though is something that can hit virtually ANYONE out of nowhere. In an instant we can become part of the worlds largest minority group, people with a physical/mental disability. It can & does happen every day.


    yep and now they are about to get all her money, no parent would sit by like they have done and watch their child mentally deteriorate unless they wanted to and that is what they have done.

    @ estee

    My guess is there is enough blame to go around on all sides. That's not the important issue right now though. If the court agrees that there is some concern the parents may abuse the power of conservatorship, they can put certain measures in place. Or they can appoint a 3rd party.


    I think she just needs some time off
