I know her mom, personally. When I lived in Florida (only 3 years ago, mind you), I went to [un-named Church] and Mindy's mom [once again, I'll leave un-named.. I don't know what all I'm allowed to say]... She was my Wednesday bible school teacher AND Sunday School teacher! She (Mindy's mom) use to throw get togethers [pool parties] for any of the people at the church so that the kids were all in a safe place - not doing drugs! She even let us stay the night, many times! Mindy's mom is a FANTASTIC woman! It really hurts to know that Mindy is saying such incredibly terrible things about her!
Maybe Mindy was abused as a child, I don't know. I wasn't there. But I do know Mindy's son. He's not abused! He is in a wonderful, loving home - something that Mindy could have never given to that amazing child!
I recently went to Florida for a small vacation, and visited Mindy's mom to tell her thank you for everything that she'd done for me. She use to always say "God has a call for you, and is going to do something good for you in your life!" I mean, she's a wonderful woman! Mindy said on the show that her son is having to go through "the same things" that she did whenever she was a child because her mom has custody of her son. Mindy couldn't be more wrong. It's the complete opposite, in fact. If it weren't for this wonderful woman, Mindy's son would be going through exactly what Mindy is going through right now. He would be forced to watch his mom in rehab and see his mom slump down in this society, lower than a mother should be. If this boy were with his actual mom (Mindy), I would hate to see the life that he was handed. Luckily, Mindy's mom lent a hand to Mindy (and her son) and has taken this wonderful boy in - just as a Heaven Sent grandma would do.
And not only do I know Mindy's mom, but I've also met Mindy, several times. She even came to the church and signed a t-shirt for me (which I still have). I can't believe that Mindy is talkng such terrible trash about her mom!
For those of you whom are my readers, I'm sorry that you are [seeing] me this way. I don't like to get upset, truly. I do my best to stay calm in all situations. But this, as you can tell, has really hit my heart. I know this family. I have for many years (about 8 years - about 2/3 of my life). And it hurts me to hear what Mindy is saying about her mom. Mom's deserve respect. Parents deserve respect.
Mindy, if you read this, and I hope that you do.. Take the time to try to remember me. My name is Jerrica Puckett, I attended the church that your mom use to be a teacher at. I'm not sure if you can remember past all of your drunken nights and stupid parties, but try... Okay. Now hear me out: I couldn't be more appalled of what you have said in regards to your own mom. Any respect that I've ever had for you is so much more than gone! I use to look up to you, I loved your voice, I loved your smile. I even told your mom that I wished that one day you would let me do a duet with you.. Really.. I admired you. But now, I've grown up; unfortunately, you have not! I see what you are now. You don't deserve the WONDERFUL mom that you have! I truly wish that you could have a better relationship with your mom [for your sake & your mom's sake, and most importantly, for your son's sake]. Maybe it's good that you are in rehab, too bad that you'll never be fixed - you can't make ends with the past if you're version of the past is a lie. You have become someone so trashy since I first met you and I can't believe that I [ever] looked up to you!!
I was not compensated in any way. This form was soley for my venting about a celebrity lie!
