In this online interview, Jeannette offers an explanation for her mother's behavior, "Arrested development I guess is what it is. I think psychologically mom is around 4-years-old. Intellectually, she’s incredibly advanced. People say she was selfish with the candy; she was selfish in the way that a child is. “This is mine and I don’t want to share it!”

Personally, I think her mother was bipolar!
