I’ve never had siblings, I didn’t grow up in a big family it was just me and my single mom. And hectic family dysfunction was actually something that I craved.
My mom is in her mid-60s and has more energy and is more youthful than any human being I know. It’s pretty incredible.
We didn’t have a TV in the living room and all my friends thought we were kind of weird. When they’d come over, my mom wanted to talk to them about current events.
They wrapped her up like a baby burrito to show to Mom. Here were a mother and her daughter and I love them both so much. I couldn’t wait for Courtney to come to the hospital so I could have all my women together.
I grew up in the ’80s, and there was no bigger group than New Edition in R&B. I broke my piggy bank so me and my mom could go to a New Edition concert together.
