Mother’s Day is not a happy event for all. Especially not for those who hate their own moms.
Los Angeles native and screenwriter Nicole Gonzalez McIntosh was eight years old when her mother first threw her out of the house to live on her own. Janette Rosario-Brol of Illinois recently took out a protective order against her mother—a woman who, among other things, once told her young daughter she wished she’d spent her drug money on getting the girl aborted instead.
Houston’s Krissy Guzman watched in astonishment as her mother pretended to only have two children when in fact she had four—and never understood why the woman paid for one daughter to go to college but told the other she wasn’t worth it. Boston salon owner Nancy Brown’s mother found her mauled by a dog in the neck and face—and bleeding nearly to death—in their native Costa Rica, and berated the elementary school girl for “ruining the sofa” with her blood.
