Marie’s 16-year-old son, Michael, is in rehab. The devout Mormon released the following statement:
“My son Michael is an amazing young man, shown through his courage in facing his issues. As his mother, I couldn’t be more proud of him. The press and public has always been kind and gracious in the past and I know they will continue to respect our privacy during this time.”
You know what?
I think this is awesome. I love that Marie’s not just burying her head in the sand and hoping her son’s problems will miraculously go away; she’s recognizing them, she’s talking about them, and she’s helping her son get better.
Way to go, Marie!
