I watched a show recently, and the storyline has stuck with me. I know this will sound cheesy for a bit (since the show is a reality show), but I'm still reviewing it in my head.........so bear with me.........

The show was The Real World on MTV. Whether or not you watch the show is irrelevant, because I am going to refer to a specific instance and I'll tell you about what happened.

One of the girls on the show, who obviously has self-esteem issues (and obviously has fake breasts), was told by her mother to go on a diet. Her mother told her plain and simple "You look bad, you should go back on the South Beach Diet."

What is so tormenting about this is that the girl has said repeatedly that she is recovering from an eating disorder. So, to hear about how fat she looks, from her MOTHER, is only a recipe for disaster. And I don't think I have to say that the girl is NOT heavy.

I was really struck by this exchange. I mean, wouldn't the Mother want to have her daughter healthy and alive with an extra 5 pounds?? What kind of Mother says something like that to their child? Is that support?? Is it 'tough love'?

Is anyone else saw this........or anyone who is reading this........as appalled as I am?

My Mom will play a control card from time to time and I have come to realize that it's just that......one last attempt at regaining the control she exerted for so many years. And I will somtimes grant her that.....after all, she IS my mother..... LOL :)

I totally agree with you!! I was beginning to think that I was being overly sensitive!

But I know I would be CRUSHED if my mother said something like that to me. Your mother is the person you're 'supposed' to be able to turn to in the face of adversity. She's not supposed to BE that adversity.

Makes me feel lucky that I have the Mom I have, who's in no way perfect....but who is??.......and she's wonderful just the same.

Southern~
I saw it, and I was appalled, too.

Usually, the central issue of eating disorders is control. I was initially wondering "What the H*ll is that mother thinking?!", then I quickly remembered the control issue. That mother has cancer and has lost control in that area of her life. The daughter has also moved across the country for several months to be on this "reality" show -- (yeah "Real World", my a$$!). Mommie Dearest has lost her grip on things, and it's just my opinion that it's her effort to regain control of things.

I think that daughter has a killer bod -- notta damn thing wrong with her. That family dynamic is pathos at its best. If you notice, Daddy Dearest didn't say a word to wifey OR either daughter about Mom's comment! It all boiled down to the power struggle between Mom and Daughter.

What a shame that Mom can't be more supportive of Daughter for attaining a more healthy state. I can't help but think that Daughter is headed back to her Bulimia ............

I didn't see it, but from your description.. I am apalled! As a mother, I find it inexcusable to deliberatly undermine her own childs self esteem. I have a son who is slighly overweight, and rather than tell him to lose weight(which i think would feed on his insecurity), I try to encourage healthier eating habits. More veggies, fruits, etc rather than chips, soda etc...

Anyway, I would think that a mother would be more concerned with her childs physical and mental HEALTH than appearances.
