      To be honest, from reading this interview, her childhood seems like it was somewhat miserable. Sorry she lost her father, but if her mother had lived, she probably would have been better off with her, than with her father.

      @Mr. E. Jones: It’s hard to say. She seems to have turned out OK, and taking people as they are is something many raised in what would generally be considered better environments don’t learn.

      @Mr. E. Jones: I don’t think so. I heard a radio interview on NPR and she seemed very well adjusted and honest. There are times in her life that she preferred the lifestyle of her grandparents but they had more money, more stable situation. Overall though she wanted to be with her dad. Her speaking of her dad having AIDS and her resentment at having to move back on to take care of him is honest and heartbreaking.
