Thank you so much for standing up for Gabby. I think she hasn't had an easy life and needs all the love and support she can get. I remember I watched some reality show about her life leading up to the Olympics (don't remember how it was called) and something about the way her mom treated her made me really uncomfortable.
No problem! Yeah, her circumstances have always been really rough and I think people forget that. Her mom…I won’t really get into my full feelings and thoughts there but basically anything that has happened in Gabby’s life and career that has been negative and that people blame Gabby for has been her mom’s decision/action. She is a pawn in all of this. There was nothing I wanted more for her after Rio than to just take all of her money and move to a deserted island alone (or with some arm candy, whichever she preferred). There are so many shady deals and threats behind that situation, tbt to when everyone called Dena Walker crazy for going off on Natalie in 2012 but like…she had a point and lots more people have seen it since then. I was also there at trials in 2012 when her dad stood directly behind me screaming at Gabby while she was warming up bars, trying to get her attention after not being in her life for years…like, this poor kid had a rough childhood, an absent father, was forced to be an adult and move away from home at a young age, was a victim of abuse, has a controlling mother who runs her life and makes her decisions, was pushed into the spotlight in 2012 which was hard for her as a more introverted/reserved person…it’s a lot. I always think back to Gabby at American Cup podium training when everyone was all over Aly and Jordyn so I talked to Gabby alone for a good amount of time and she was so happy and bubbly and excited and genuine. That was my first time talking to her, and it was the only time I ever talked to the ‘real’ Gabby. After that, the light kind of left her. The whole situation is kind of heartbreaking and then on top of that, not only do people treat her like crap, but her own teammates then call on their followers to treat her like crap even more. I don’t care if you don’t like her personally but people are downright cruel to her and she deserves none of that.
