She must know. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing something about ‘American Idol’ or pick up a magazine. … So it’s made me wonder if she ever picked up the phone and voted for me. How weird would that be? I don’t know if I’ve even bumped into her at the grocery store. I just don’t know if I’ll be able to accept her back into my life, because we were never close in the first place. She just walked out on me. I wouldn’t even know what I would say to her. She hurt me a lot. I didn’t even think about my mom until I picked up a copy of Star magazine and saw her in there. I just cried.”
