Christina was adopted shortly after her career was falling apart and she was dubbed box office poison. She was probably feeling out of control in a lot of aspects of her life, thought motherhood would gain her something - whether that was love or regaining popularity - and it didn't. By the time she adopted the twins, her career had stabilized a bit, as had her personal life. So it's possible that she was abusive and controlling towards her oldest two kids, and mellowed by the time they were there. I've heard of other large families where some kids are abused and others escape the wrath.
    A very good point, probably of which I believe the truth lies. I read other stories too about how she treated the two oldest.

    Apparently both rats and a parakeet were served up in the movie. I found images of both.

    Is the series over? I didn't see any previews for next week, so I assume that last night was the finale.
    I wish it would go on. I want to read more about them.
    I loved the sets and the fashion. JS and SS did so well.
    It was funny and touching at the same time.

    No, there are more episodes. My program guide shows 5 episodes, but there are likely more.

    Edit: IMDB shows 8 episodes total.

    Great articles, PIK.

    So as I read them ... saw this and as its been FOREVER since I have seen the movie ... I was wondering if it was MULTIPLE meals to Blanche from Jane???

    "Jane’s treatment of Blanche parodies the mother’s nurturing role; instead of offering food and solace, Jane gives Blanche hideously inedible food (her dead parakeet, a dead rat) and torments her further with verbal and physical abuse."

    Oh wow, just looking the link over and it does appear that Bette Davis' daughter (IRL) is IN the movie.

    I also was reading she became a pastor later in life. I think she still is one.

    As good of a job as Susan Sarandon is doing playing Bette Davis, I think Jessica Lange is absolutely stealing the show with her interpretation of Joan Crawford. Wow! She's excellent.
