I was watching Chevy Chase on The Today Show last week...I have always loved him ever since Three Amigos, Saturday Night Live and Vacation so I was excited to find out he was being interviewed...I found out he has a book called "I'm Chevy Chase..and you're Not" and he was talking about his abusive childhood and how he is trying to change things for his kids and he won't spank because he believes hitting kids is wrong! I LOVE him more now!!!

Yes, and I can't wait to have money again so I can buy his book...i felt so bad for him, he looked like he was about to cry when the interviewer asked him about it and the lady who I think is the co-author had to take over as he sat there looking sad...he said his mother would wake him up and slap him over and over and lock him in the closet.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl">

I read an article about him in People magazine. His parents were beyond horrible to him. It made me so sad<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I've always loved him! I had no idea about his childhood,though. How awful. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: I'm going to see if the library has his book...

I think of him every time I hear Paul Simon's song "You can call me Al" .<br>
I went to the concert and was imagining he would magically appear <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Its funny because I always tell dh "If I find out you spanked the kids you better not go to sleep at night".

<a href="http://www.imdb.com/news/wenn/2007-04-24" target="_blank">This is from imdb.com from last week:</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Comedian Chevy Chase will never forgive his mother and step-dad for the tortuous beatings he received as a child. The Fletch funnyman admits he lived in "deathly fear" of his mentally-ill mother Cathalene and stepfather because they subjected him to regular psychological torture. In his new autobiography I'm Chevy Chase . . . And You're Not, he claims his mother once slapped him "continually and hard, across the face. I don't remember what it was for, or what I had done. I lived in fear all the time - deathly fear. I always turn to it in my mind...I'll never forgive them. At their graves I didn't. It was too hard for me. You would think a grown man could shake it off, as the coffin was being lowered, to say, 'I forgive you.' I don't forgive."</td>
</tr></table></div>
I don't blame him for being unable to forgive. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
