          “I’m watching her like a hawk because if I don’t, she’s going to go completely off the rails,” says Michele.

          Claiming that Michele is “more controlling than she ever was before,” Stephanie says her mother goes through her mail, her phone, her emails, and “just has to wedge her way into every aspect of my life.”

          “It just makes me want to drink even more,” the 33-year-old says.)

          “Stephanie thinks I may be controlling, but it’s either that or I’m going to be planning her funeral,” says Michele.
