What a nasty, nasty woman. I don't blame her son for having nothing to do with her.

I was reading the comments at the Daily Tele's site and one of the people who commented said he'd played cricket with Mitchell as a teenager and the only parent he ever met was his father. Makes her comments that much worse.

Mom sounds like a piece of work.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

While it's rude to just text your mum on Mother's Day, I can't really blame the poor guy from trying to get away from such a nutty parent.

I wonder if mom is a clinger and he's trying to detach/set boundaries.

I rather like the part about him not spending a night with her any more, that one made me laugh

I know! She's a karate champ, she's hot, I honestly doubt she needed Mitchell to get noticed.  ::)

Ironically, in trying to hold on to her son, she's guranteeing that she'll never see him again.
I have finally found the bar I can't get thrown out of....

Yeah, even if GF is the hag from the Black Lagoon, mom publically treating her son like a baby is going to gall him.

Even if he takes the insults to his GF lying down, I can just imagine the bitter ragging he'll get from his own teammates, and worse, the opposition.

Son found a strong, independent woman who doesn't need constant validation. Good for him. And the fact she could probably whoop his mother is a bonus.  ;D

ETA:

Just noticed two things in the articles - mother saying girlfriends sholdn't be flown "they're just girlfriends". Well, actually, she's his fiancee, and there IS a difference. Also, I can see why he wouldn't want his mum there.

The other:
Quote
Asked if her fiancé had been upset by his mother's comments, Jessica said smoothly, "From the look of today's game he's focused on what he's here to do..."

She bean-dipped them! Well played.

I do not know who any of these people are (never heard of them before this post), but I'm really being pulled in by the drama and how well Jessica is dealing with this.  I did find the Womans Day article to be a little misleading - it said in the title that she was going to "hit back" and honestly, I didn't see any hitting back, I saw class and a nicely worded response.

POD, Jessica is one classy lady.

"Jessica responds in a classy manner" wouldn't have been nearly as grabbing a headline ...
