It’s bad enough that we have to sit through one full hour of “How Not To Parent,” which I think Bravo calls “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Now we also have to get the lesson from the music world, specifically, Courtney Love.
I know what you’re thinking: “But Courtney Love is a model parent!” I know — and that’s what makes this all the more shocking. Apparently, Love recently told some rando holding a microphone the following:
“Frances is so beautiful, but she doesn’t want to be famous. She was offered the part of Bella in the Twilight movies, and Tim Burton wanted her for Alice in Wonderland. But she wants to go to college — she’s very good at graphic novels… Frances will be fine.”
So if it’s not bad enough that Bean has to deal with the loss of her father as an infant, her mother in and out of rehab, her family’s drug problems and addictions and fame, now she also has to deal with the fallout of her mother telling what is 99% likely to be a huge lie about how in demand she is in Hollywood. I mean, where do you go from there as a 20-year-old? You’re kind of too young to really realize the damage your mom is doing, but at the same time you know it’s not quite right…well, I just hope that Love is saving up for the therapy bills that Frances will be charging to her in about 5-10 years.
