And there’s some nonsense about her will being forged. And the suicide note was on a post it. And she underlined “not” in …Do NOT allow Wy to attend funeral.

Given that she's a suicide without understandable external pressures (like already dying of cancer) who had tried before, I think it's fair to say that Naomi was herself mentally ill.

Now, it may well be that Wynonna is also mentally ill, or that she's a raging bitch, or whatever. But I cannot take Naomi Judd's word for anything, especially since this was written right before she committed suicide.

After watching the Judds docuseries, it was clear to me that Naomi was impossible to live with. I know the word "narcissist" is overused, but that's how she appeared, IMO. I felt sorry for the 2 daughters. She never understood that Wynonna was a bigger star and more talented than she was.

AGC, March 2015:

[quote]This actress used to be A list. By some definitions she was probably A+ list. Off the top of my head I can think of four or five movies that she was the female lead or biggest lead. Top billed. A nice little run. No one liked working with her more than once. There were not a lot of crews or cast that signed up for a second shot with our actress. Even now that technically has two franchises she is in at the same time, her appearances with co-stars are very limited. She does promotional work on her own away from other cast. She usually alternates premieres and rarely travels to any premiere other than NYC. No overseas stuff for her. [bold]Mental illness runs in her family[/bold] and in her case it leads to a lot of paranoia. A lot of paranoia. An A list celebrity at the time boyfriend used to have to answer for his actions and whereabouts 24/7. Not just jealousy which is what you would think but paranoia that he was doing things and actions other than just cheating for which he had to account. Same thing with a celebrity husband. The thing about both of these men were they were gone for long periods of time or else there is no way this would work out well. She thinks people follow her all the time. She thinks everyone is out to harm her. She has employed a food tester during periods of her life for fear of poisoning. She protects her house not only with alarms and armed security patrols but also chants and salt patterns. She can be incredibly nice one second and the next second is screaming at you with spit flying out of her mouth. She can spend one minute throwing things at your head trying to kill you and the next trying to have sex with you. These are not isolated incidents. It is why she backed down from an expected challenge about 18 months ago. It was not even her enemies who threatened her with revealing these things to the public, but her one or two only friends because they thought it would do even more harm than good.

Sometimes people who commit suicide can be incredibly cruel. Bill & Kevin were a couple in my friend group. Bill was around 39 and was a very handsome firefighter/emt. He also had borderline personality disorder.

On the night Bill hanged himself in the garage, he brother had just arrived for an annual visit. He two small children came to visit as well. They were around 7 and 10. Bill's mother was also staying with him at the time.

On that day, Bill texted his bf to tell him that he had just fucked some rando from Grindr. They ended up breaking up that day over that incident. So then just a few hours later during the night, Bill had a noose that the strung from the garage door track & killed himself.

The one saving grace is that those kids didn't wake up first to find his lifeless body. It was his mother who found his body in the garage the next morning.

Bill was a real piece of shit and I still have complicated feelings about him a decade later.

R79 The gay writer who wrote this article for Huffington Post a few years ago mentions one of his friends who also did a cruel suicide. His bf had broken up with him and to exact revenge the 32 year old decided to kill himself using helium. As he lay dying, he texted his ex to come over a few hours later. At that point, he would have def. been dead from the helium, so it wasn't a cry for help. The guy who killed himself wanted the ex to find the body and be racked with guilt.

And to be quite honest, I still despise Bill and how traumatized those kids would have been if they had found the body. From what I've read, people who are left in the wake of a suicide often have what's called "complicated grief".

R45, I’ve had my own experiences with spirits, and while I’m sure there are a LOT of scammers, Mary Ann Winkowski is the real deal. She talks a lot about certain ghosts and why they did what they did, They stick around because they need to tell the living where the hidden money is, or to seek closure. Some are very stubborn personalities she didn’t want to deal with.

She started seeing ghosts as a very young age, some of her job is a burden, and I find it hard to believe she or her parents would fake it.

It would seem unlikely that, even in Naomi had contemplated suicide for months, that she thought she'd leave a post-it note.

I like how the explanation about the hepatitis was she got it during a transfusion when she was a nurse.. Those are two different things.

I agree that in the wake of the Harkles and of course LMP, the Judds have received relatively little notice, which is too bad since they are a treasure trove of crazy.

I feel bad for Wy; yes, she's a hot mess, a terrible mother & probably completely mental, but she was never as attractive as classic beauties Naomi & Ashley, Naomi gaslighted her for years about her real father & even in her younger days, she had a tendency towards fatness. As I recall, there have been multiple stories over the years about her crazy antics, but also stories about her generosity. And I do think it's true that she really had the pipes and her mother knew she was nothing without Wy & resented her for it.

She must have really felt around the outside of that pillow for the exact spot.

Authoritarian uneducated abusive family fully participating in all of the negative aspects of their demographic. External locus of control (superstition, psychology gurus, non effective treatments). Living in a Petito style bus arrangement for years as a way to make money and kids were trapped with the crazy. Getting surrounded by yes people which morphed into a Britney like identified patient scenario, but nobody was able to put their foot down (authoritarian fake respect for elders,cultural). Winona said in the linked interview that she saw her mom get hundreds of acres and she had to get the property next door (codependency, hostile dependency,) and Naomi brags about her kid living 60 seconds away. Just one big huge recipe for disaster. It appears they were leaking to the press on each other and waiting for the sword to drop so to speak. Attorneys taking advantage.

I can’t stop thinking about this note. This mother was a real piece of work. It is just so shocking.

I had a friend who offed himself. He was accused of molesting a student, then left a note confessing that it was true. So his note was not vindictive, it was more like the pain of telling people that he had actually done it and wasn’t who we thought he was, that he had lived a lie. So that was horrific enough. But to have someone write something so filled with hate and vindictive????? Knowing that those will be the last words you leave her with? I just can’t get over it. It is the most spiteful thing I have ever read. I guess I never thought about this even happening, I didn’t think about how someone could say “fuck you” to their kids before blowing their brains out.

The DL thread on Mercedes McCambridge mentioned that her only child, a son, had committed suicide. According to wikipedia, the full story is very sad. He was a stock broker; he set up an account under his mother's name, and used it to steal money. When he got caught, his mother refused to cover for him. Then, he killed himself, his wife, and his kids, and left his mother a vicious suicide note, which included the following quote:

"Initially you said, 'well, we can work it out' but NO, you refused… You called me a liar, a cheat, a criminal, a bum. You said I have ruined your life… You were never around much when I needed you, so now I and my whole family are dead—so you can have the money… 'Night, Mother."

I suppose given their contentious relationship, Naomi throwing in a final fuck you to Wy while probably not even mentioning Ashley is very on brand.

My step-siblings are kind of like this: they'd rather burn everything to the ground rather than concede an inch to one another. As awful as all of this is, I'll bet these three have been pulling this kind of shit with each other for their entire lives. Though now Wy & Ashley have a common enemy: Larry. Watch your back, Larry!

Ashley seemed like she was stuck in the middle, between Wy and Naomi. She knew the secret about Wy's paternity before Wy did. I give Ashley credit for somehow being on OK terms with both Wy and Naomi.

Post-death (Naomi), Ashley and Larry (Naomi's husband) seemed to be on very good terms. I wouldn't be 100% sure that Ashley will align herself with Wy. Larry might give Ashley some of Naomi's estate, who knows.

I just did some reading on Wikipedia, and I'm a little surprised that neither of the women did any songwriting. Well, Naomi maybe wrote 3 songs. Wynonna's always seen holding a guitar, but she wasn't credited with any of the guitar work on their albums. Was it all a marketing creation based on a young woman's powerful voice and her prettier, more feminine mother to balance her out?

Without songwriting credits, they're not making money off royalties. So then all their money came from touring, and they would have made an equal amount then? Naomi was in her late 30s when they got famous, so perhaps she invested wisely. Wynonna was in her very early 20s; she probably spent that money quickly!

She's an antinatalist; she decided not to have children because of the state of the world. She's been involved in politics and many charities.

I've been following their crazy asses since they debuted. Ashley is the only one who seems to have her life somewhat together. She's actually quite a good actress when given the opportunity to be in a good movie. But even she has a lot of issues. Didn't she check herself into the same long-term mental hospital when Wynonna was in the same one?

Wynonna has had a truly messy life. I think one husband was a child molester? And her daughter is in jail? And didn't a nanny accuse Wy and her first husband on sexual advances? And she put a tracking device on her sister's car after Ashley tried to get custody of Wy's kids? Plus, I think she's broke.

And Naomi shot herself in the head and wrote a suicide note banning her daughter from her funeral on a post-it one day before being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Gotta love this family!

What are you trying to say R168? That it is not true? Something you can't prove either. And the fact that the National Enquirer and the NYPost picked up the story means it is a rumor with some very strong legs to make it into national print. Where there is smoke, there is usually fire. And the rumor itself was said to have been started by the granddaughter herself.

[quote]“E’Dena Hines disclosed to Lamar Davenport and others that her grandfather engaged in a sexually inappropriate relationship with her,”

So yes, if I were Morgan Freeman and you didn't actually have photos of me fucking my adopted granddaughter, I would deny them too. Since she is dead and he is denying it, the truth will never ultimately be known. But given the complete randomness of it, and the fact that the idea of a possible marriage came up, makes believe they were probably fucking. And the fact that she fell in line with is talking points means she probably got set up lovely financially by him.

And turn out completely different. Naomi and Ashley got along well, whereas Naomi and Wy fought. Ashley was the "good girl," I think.

Wy's current husband is also her manager. Wy says she has learned to forgive; she's saying that she's been wronged and she probably has. At the same time, Wy can never stop the drama.

Are you an orphan if you are over 18?

While the textbook definition of an orphan is a child who has lost both parents, adults can be considered orphans too. The word orphan has expanded broadly over time, so it can be used to describe anyone who has lost their biological parents.

R231 Seriously, only a big drama whore like Wy would use the word "orphan" and she'll use it 100 times in the next 100 interviews because she thinks it makes her sound more pitiful.

It could’ve been worse. She could’ve said, teary-eyed, “I’m nobody’s little girl anymore.”

After watching R222 video I feel really bad about calling Wynonna a cunt earlier in the thread. She doesn't come off that way at all in the video, but instead calm and even a little shy. I can relate when she talked about being an introvert. Maybe Ashley is the problem after all.

I was working on Hollywood Squares- it was November 2002 for air in January. Naomi was a guest panelist that week along with Dame Edna.

I'll NEVER forget his entrance to CBS Television City that morning. He was Barry Humphries, he STRODE in. EVERY INCH an English gentleman. Long black overcoat, bowler hat, long flowing scarf- he is around 6'5, so he cut imposing figure, and he had a long, silver plated walking stick. Followed in by his entourage- guys with hair, makeup, and wardrobe bags.

They start taping. Naomi ignored the joke answers they gave her to respond with. She started making crude, unfunny quips about Dame Edna having cut off "its" penis. The audience didn't react well to her, but she was quite tone deaf, so she kept it up, full bore.

Dame Edna's shtick was she was an eccentric, loony old bat. Not that she was a man in drag. So Barry really had no idea how to react to Naiomi's nasty jabs. Really uncomfortable to watch.

At the break between shows, the producers had a word with her, which led to a threat to leave early. It was a Saturday, so there was no one they could get on short notice. Henry Winkler was producer at the time, so it was decided he would do the final two shows in her place.

After some phone calls with her manager, Naomi relented. But for the last two shows, she refused to do any banter at all, didn't read the joke answers, ect

Trust me when I tell you, and I've been around, this woman was a MAJOR league C U N T. Maybe the worst person I ever worked with.

R237 I totally believe you. You're experience mirrors others I know who met her. She was an awful person killing herself to spite her daughters. That's a whole other level of cuntiness that even death can't erase.

Good story, R237. I didn't know Henry Winkler produced H'wood Squares.

If Wynonna is, indeed, a lesbian, it makes sense that she's closeted ... with a mother like that. My God, Naomi sounded horrible.

R231 No. An orphan is a child (not a childish adult like you) whose parents have died. “The internet” is not correct if it is stating otherwise.

by Anonymousreply 242January 23, 2023 3:20 AM

I remember Naomi being on Bill Maher's Politically Incorrect back in the 90's. She came across as believing she had important book knowledge to convey to the panel and audience. She was long-winded and was politely tolerated like an aunt telling stories at a family gathering.

In the video at R222, Wynonna seems to have matured a little, but I still detect the pop psychology/self-help stream-of-consciousness rambling she used to do while a guest on Larry King Live back in the day would be happening if there was more air time. It's just waiting to come out, I can tell. And, her articulation/accent sounds a lot more like her mom than it used to.

R254 Just to clarify, many of those clips (mostly the ones of game play) were from the first time she was on Hollywood Squares, when Whoopi was still there. I was talking about later, after Whoopi left, when she came on again.

That was a surreal week, seeing Coolio, Phyllis Diller, and Donnie Osmond in a conversation circle.

She did seem crazy & a gold star drama queen. Hoda & Little Bush had nothing, but on the other hand, anyone person listening to that psycho babble would think "what the fuck?" and respond to her with a kind of gentle patience that you would to some old lady at the nursing home.

Aside from the weird & inappropriate "orphan" statement, I can see why her kids are such a mess because everything is all about HER & HER JOURNEY!!

Ashley is only a tiny bit more put together than Wy because Ashley is physically attractive and her life has been easier for it.

If she had Wy's body she'd be a huge mess too....and I'll never forget David Spade referring to Ashley as "dictionary mouth". She really is an arrogant pretentious twit.

I’m talking about her onscreen persona. There’s something quiet and a little grave about her. And she’s never done any of those tits-out-I’m-a-bimbo roles. She’s not some amazingly talented actress but she’s done William Inge and Tennessee Williams on Broadway. She seemed serious enough to be a replacement for Jodie Foster when they needed someone for “Double Jeopardy.” She hasn’t had messy, drug fueled breakups with rock stars or leaked nudes (has she??)

By Hollywood standards she’s practically a nun.

I can't imagine, no matter how bad times got between my parents and me, having to deal with their last words being I don't want you around. There was thought behind that letter. Even if she was out of her head at the time, the idea that the her head was in a place against you at her death must be painful. There is nothing ever to be said, no apology or making it better, no getting to a better place. I can't imagine the mental gymnastics neccessary to minimize the impact of those words for the rest of your life.

R272 is right. Having a severely mentally ill parent hurts you for years when you're young, but by the time you're middle-aged, you're just numb to them and their shenanigans. You've formed armor against them and whatever stupid-ass stunt they pull, you just shrug.

by Anonymousreply 274February 1, 2023 4:27 PM

I find it hilarious that someone about to commit suicide calls someone else "mentally ill." A lot of us recognize a narcissistic parent when we see one.

Poor Wynonna. I hope she's in therapy and healing somehow.

Mmmm… not for me, sadly. I’ve had tons of sex starting as a teen but having been raised by 1 alcoholic and 1 manic depressive, I have enormous intimacy issues that have kept me from ever being in a committed relationship.

My brother’s never been in a relationship, either.

^^ No. Our parents were both good looking enough to have done 1 modeling job each. And that was just from being picked out in public - they weren’t in the business.

Looks aren’t my family’s problem. In fact I think it hampered all our development in the long run because when you have a face people respond to some things are just given to you without your identity or personality being a factor.

R276 He was not saying that he isn't still fucked up himself. He was saying at a certain point you become numb to the antics of your PARENTS. That even though your life might still be a problem, you don't respond to the triggers of your parents the same as an adult like you did as a kid. So the note that Naomi left would not have the same impact on Wynona as it would someone who hadn't suffered the crazy their entire life.

Sorry if I missed this trying to skim the thread but Wynonna became estranged from her mother at around age 30 and stayed that way for about 10 years.

So she knows her mother is a narcissist and I'd bet she's glad she's gone.

Wikipedia: In November 2003, Wynonna taped an appearance on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show discussing what she described as a severe dependence on food.[30] The episode aired in February 2004. Judd had been working with the show in an effort to lose weight and get to the root of her dependence. In September 2005, she made a second appearance on the show, discussing how she had lost some weight. She also focused on improving relationships with her mother and her father Michael Ciminella, from whom she had been estranged for almost a decade.

by Anonymousreply 284February 2, 2023 8:45 AM

And I don't know why they called Ciminella her father - he was her stepfather, or in any case, not her biological father - though he's Ashley's bio-dad.

Wynonna was born Christina Claire Ciminella[4] in Ashland, Kentucky, on May 30, 1964.[5] Her mother (then known as Diana) had quickly married Michael Ciminella after being abandoned by Charles Jordan, her boyfriend and Judd's biological father.[6] Jordan died in 2000.
