A Glimpse into the Future?


 

 

Dr. Phil asks Erin for her thoughts about Bridget's comments.

 

"I appreciate the fact that she's able to say that, 'Yes, I still have questions for my mom, and it's not perfect now,'" she says. She asks Bridget, "Do you still have resentment toward your mom?"

 

"As of right now, no. Honestly, I believe that at that time, my grandparents were the right place for us. I can't tell you guys enough how amazing they are, how amazing they were to us growing up," she says. "They had to go against their child, and I know that's very hard for you. You're going against Alexandra. They had to do it. It wasn't a matter of what if. They can't toy with that. They had to do it, because my mother was not stepping up, and if you're here, and you're not raising the bar, somebody else has to. My grandparents were the ones to do that. I love them dearly." She adds that her grandmother passed away in 2005, and since then, she's committed to helping the cancer community in her honor.  

 

"She's so articulate and just an amazing young woman. I'm glad to see that you can come from such diversity and turn out so well," Erin says, fighting back tears.

 

"I have my grandparents to thank for that," Bridget says. "I remember years ago, you said it would take a Superman effort or Herculean effort to fix things. You've done it."

 

"I don't feel like that, but thank you," Erin says with tears welled in her eyes.
