I have always been so moved by Christina Crawford's story. I believe every word. I had a narcissistic character disorder mother who was cold, abusive, and so similar to Joan Crawford. She was not famous but put on a good show for whatever "public" she had. No one knew what went on behind closed doors. The movie was so wonderful (I haven't read the book) but I have trouble watching it because it is so painful for me to be reminded of my own childhood and beyond. My mother is still a miserable bitch - although she is alive and well (physically that is). I wish Christina all the best,

I can assure you that Christina was adopted. I single-handedly located her birth parents!

Am I the only one who can see that Christina and Christopher look exactly alike? Not to mention that Christina looks so much like Joan Crawford.
Single actresses of that era got away with having children out of wedlock and passing them off as adopted. What has Christina ever said about this issue? It seems from Mommy Dearest and everything I've read that she believes she was adopted. Please somebody look at the pictures in the March 2008 Vanity Fair and tell me those are not her natural children.

Any child who would be made to call their mother "Mommie dearest" say's alot about the mother, and any mother who would show so much parciality toward her children at her death, say's alot also... Her action's spoke to alot of us who didn't see or experience the "behind the door sceen's". I hope Christina made 10 folds over Joan's 2 Mil. she had in her estate.IF Christina writes another book,it'll be a best seller... so go ahead Christina,and my God bless you!

Anonymous, That sounds like my story. We have to remember that there are delusional and mentally disturbed people in this world that are unfit parents.
Think of the thousands of children who come up in abusive households that should be removed by the department of child welfare.
Christina's story is one of valor and of courage. Her upbringing in that hostile and rotten environment made her a stronger person.

I completely believe Christina'a story. I was friends with a woman who treats her son in many of the same ways Christina was treated. It's dificult to explain to someone who hasn't witnessed it. But thanks to Christina'a book, it's easier. When I talk to people about the behavior, I just tell people the woman is like Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest. Then they get it. I'm grateful to Christina for keeping her story alive.

The old lady thought too much of herself with those goofy eyebrows, the dutch cleanser, and the wire hanger. I loved it when she hacked down the tree too. Christina made big time $$$$$$$$$$ on her too and deserved every penny.

Happy Birthday Christina. YOU got the last word.

Marcia, You've written that Joan was badly abused as a child. So was Hitler and so was Stalin. That explains all of what Christina wrote in her book. A child never forgets being abused. The only difference between Christina and Joan was that Christina was emotionally stronger. I'm sure that she didn't beat anyone up with a canister of dutch cleanser or a wire hanger.
