Crazy but I couldn't stop watching
Drew Barrymore played a great little Edie in the HBO special. Caitlin, I agree, the documentary was pretty sad, but very interesting.
I don't think she was happy at all, if you watched it, her mother was very controlling and wouldn't let her live her life the way she would have wanted too.
The information behind Grey Gardens is as fascinating as the documentary.
The background of Jackie fixing up the house, who these ladies were, etc. Some say they were exploited but they needed the money to live and none of the Bouviers
or others were helping. It's sad and real.
Sad to say, but they had a mental illness based on dependency, and decended into squalor because they based their lives on a patriarchal society. That is one of the reasons that Whitney Houston is dead today.
