Anne Heche Keeps Her Kids Away From Their Grandmother

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayAnne Heche

Anne Heche is speaking out against her mother saying that she will not introduce her young sons, Atlas, 5 months, and Homer, 7, to her because she hates "anything gay."

Heche's father, an evangelical Christian who not only sexually abused Anne as a kid but was also a closeted gay man, died of AIDS in 1983. Shortly after her mother joined Focus on the Family a group that holds the belief one can "overcome" homosexuality.

That is really effed up. No wonder Celestia reared her ugly head a few years ago!

Anne Heche explains her decision to keep her family apart:

"My mother's had a very tragic life. Three of her five children are dead, and her husband is dead. That she is attempting to change gay people into straight people is, in my opinion, a way to keep the pain of the truth out. People wonder why I am so forthcoming with the truths that have happened in my life, and it's because the lies that I have been surrounded with and the denial that I was raised in, for better or worse, bore a child of truth and love. My mother preaches to this day the opposite of that core of my life. It is no mistake that she still stands up against love. And one wonders why I'm not rushing to have her meet my children."

While we think family should always come first sometimes, family issues can be very complicated.

It sounds like Anne is doing what she believes is best for her kiddies and that's what's important.

Remember she was gay once herself!

    Didn't 512you change from a gay 758person to a straight person, Anne?0894

    "Remember she was gay once herself!" Please explain….can a gay person just turn it off and on then? Hmmm…….



  3. 3

    She was NEVER gay,she was just a fame whore who hooked on to Ellen for the publicity! We're happy she's on the "other team",again. This is one screwed up bitch and even though I agree with her views about gay people,she is STILL a whack job!



  4. 4

    "Once Gay?" Wha? She's bi and will always be bi… ??? You can never be "once gay" - ambiguous comment, Perez.

    I don't blame her, really. Sometimes, keeping your children from your mother/parents/family is what is best, for their own safety and well being. I know this from personal experience. I refuse to allow my mother's family into our childrens' lives because they are hateful, spiteful and severely abusive people-physical, emotional and sexual. My children will not be subject to that bullshit. Good for Anne Heche!

    women seem to have a much easier time being accepted when they switch back and forth … frankly, i don't think 'love' should have anything to do with what organs you & your partner have … it just is what it is. and weird as she may be, i love Anne … have since Another World … she's an incredibly talented actress.



  7. 7

    She's crazy. Anyone who would get involved with her is crazy.

    Re: Piper Laurie

    Nope. I think she is an opportunist and will sleep with either men or women to further her career.

    While I wholeheartedly believe that if someone is going to cause harm to your kids, you have a duty to protect them, I also wholeheartedly believe that you should allow your kids limited access to people have opinions that are different from your own. Doing so gives the little ones a wider viewpoint and lets them see that there is more than one way to live life. Then, when they are older, they are better equipped to make choices for themselves and their own families.

    I would let the mother see the children on very controlled occasions, as when I am there, but not let them around the children alone. Somehow, even as a gay, don't take homophobia seriously. I mean, if it reaches a point of seriousness, like stalking or a violent attack, than I know I'm in front of someone with psychological problems and I call the cop. I also wouldn't hang in a place where people are known to hate gays en masse. I can't begin to deal with lunatics.



  11. 11

    Even though I think she's a whack job and will do anything for publicity, her decision is a wise one. Her job is to protect her children and if it means keeping them away from someone who could risk poisoning their mind.



  12. 12

    I feel for anne, seems like she's had a fucked up life! It's bound to leave it's mark!! Sometimes the sad truth is, you have to cut people out of your life!!!



  13. 13

    Jesus WALKED IN LOVE. These people do not follow Jesus.
    They judge and attack anything they do not approve of. Anne's mom is losing out on the joys of being a grandparent due to her judgmental attitude. SAD SAD SAD



  14. 14

    So because you disagree with your mother you throw her out of your life. Sounds very childish to me. Accept your mother for who she is. Nobody thinks the same. She is your mother. Life is so short. I'm happy to say at 15 years old I accepted my father before he tragically died.



  15. 15

    All adult talk is poison.



  16. 16

    Re: blsdjan – So Anne lives a Jesus loving life? A Jesus loving life would be to accept and honor your mother with respect. I'm sure both Anne and her mother are not perfect. Her mother is in serious denial and I'm sure her life has been effected by the deaths in her family. Maybe Anne should write a letter to her mother instead of a letter to the press. Keep her family life private like it should be.



  17. 17

    As one commenter said she's just a Fame Whore. If it wasn't for nonsence like this story her Name and Picture wouldn't even be out there. Nice thing to be known for!



  18. 18

    Um, her husband was given full custody because she is a nutcase. Sounds like this is just another attempt by her to use the "Look at me! I'm so wacky!" angle to get her name in the press.



  19. 19

    Is there ANYONE in Hollywood that HASN'T been sexually abused by a family member?????



  20. 20

    Remember she was gay once herself!>>>>>>

    Hmmm, maybe her mother is right!!



  21. 21

    Re: Octavarium – I totally forgot about that. HMMM.



  22. 22

    Explains why she's such a nutjob. LOL



  23. 23

    Gay? BI? Or just crazy????



  24. 24

    sounds like her mother is a sick woman with no interest to change anything about herself. i think is a good move on anne part. who wants a person (reguardless if related to or not) to be involved in children's lives who hold changing others beliefs, and expressions of oneself as a valued priority.

    Wait, wasn't Anne alleged crazy by her ex baby daddy(s)??? Then when that faded, where was Anne??? AND WHO CARES??? I think her lack of talent will drive her to do/say anything to stay around.. "stay around"… didn't say spotlight. Really Anne, you're a has been.. or better yet, a never was. Please go away.



  26. 26

    Unless she caught her mom saying something hurtful to the kids I don't get why she is keeping the kids away from their grandmother. She can tell grandma to keep her opinions about gay people to herself when she is with her grandkids. I have a feeling she is keeping the kids from her mom as a passive aggressive way to get back at her. Children learn what they see and she might not find her kids so forgiving of her when they are older.



  27. 27

    "family should always come first sometimes"?

    Exposure to some attitudes or people while growing up can often defines a person's concsious decision to go the exact opposite way. Anne has to follow her own truth.

  29. @v@ says – reply to this

    Anne could probably give her kids time with their grandmother. She has to have faith that it will motivate her kids to stand up for what they think sounds wrong. Kids learn far more from challenge than they do when everything is hunky dory.



  30. 30

    The old lady is entitled to her own beliefs - I don't agree with those beliefs but I do respect her right to hold them. Heche cannot hide her kids away from every person that doesn't share her point of view. You'd want to have a pretty serious reasons for denying your children a grandparent, wouldn't you?? If this is the only reason, then I feel sorry for those kids (sounds like Mommy's still a little unbalanced???).



  31. 31

    Yes she is right her children are much better off with her she's nuts has a very confused sexuality, different fathers for her kids one of whom she is not married to and both her and her baby daddy were married to other people when they got together, has to have the state get involved with custody of her older son cause she and her ex are so immature, yes a wonderful environment to raise children.



  32. 32

    "Shortly after her mother joined Focus on the Family a group that holds the belief one can "overcome" homosexuality.": WHICH IS TRUE. Like they (focus on the family) say on their website: "Just as there are many paths that may lead a person to experience same-sex attractions, there are likewise multiple ways out."
    "That she is attempting to change gay people into straight people is, in my opinion, a way to keep the pain of the truth out. ": 1° of all, SHE'S NOT FORCING HOMOSEXUALS TO CHANGE. A PERSON CAN CHANGE ONLY IF THE PERSON WANTS TO. 2°: She may be feeling like she could've done sth for her husband (guilt), so now she wants to help other people that have problems with their sexual identity. THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. LIKE I SAID, SHE'S NOT FORCING ANYONE.



  33. 33

    "It is no mistake that she still stands up against love": what a curious (wrong) definition of love she has… so love for her is to lay down with a woman (in this case) pretending that she's a man, going against the nature and GOD. Making someone else (and herself) sin and confuse her children with viewpoints, lifestyles and "relationships" that are not only anti-natural, but also anti-GOD. That's her definition of love.
    And one wonders why I'm not rushing to have her meet my children.": of course, considering your definition of love (hate against your own mother). SHE'S GONNA TELL THE TRUTH TO YOUR CHILDREN, ANNE, AND THAT'S DEFINITELY INCONVENIENT TO YOU AND THE GAY AGENDA YOU'RE PROMOTING.



  34. 34

    "It sounds like Anne is doing what she believes is best for her kiddies and that's what's important.": NO, PERVEZ, SHE'S NOT. She's basically telling her kids that their grandmother is a disgusting bigot and that they should HATE her for saying the truth and helping others. SHE'S THE ONE THAT'S PROMOTING HATE, NOT HER MOTHER
    and FYI, annie: "Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you" Matthew 7,1-2



  35. 35

    PS: she (grannie) has THE RIGHT to visit her grandchildren, whether heche likes it or not. She'll have to let her sons visit her, otherwise, she'll be sued.

    Re: katiepagan
    sounds like ANNE HECHE is a sick woman with no interest to change anything about herself. i think is a BAD move on anne part.who wants a person like ANNE HECHE (reguardless if related to or not) to be involved in children's lives who hold HATE AGAINST others, and expressions of oneself as a valued priority.



  37. 37

    Re: duelastar – NO, her decision is NOT a wise one. how screwed up you have to be to think that the grandmother is the one that's gonna poison the kids' minds
    Re: blsdjan – : Jesus did WALK IN LOVE. But you, like all "liberal christians" (aka satanists in disguise) are missing the point. Anne's mother is simply following what's in GOD'S WORD. YOU and ANNE HECHE are the ones that have a judgemental attitude



  38. 38

    I don't care if her mom sounds like Archie Bunker, she is still their grandma and they should have a relationship. Hope when they turn 18 they look grandma up.

    Re: perezito_is_an_asshole
    I guess i'm a satanist then (by your standards). Sorry but I find it poison when a person teaches people to hate others for whatever reason.



  40. 40

    Perez Hilton would you shut the fuck up already with your god damn snide remarks about "family should come first"…"don't smoke"…"she's a coke head"…blah blah blah!!! Who the fuck are you to tell ANYONE how they should live their life or conduct themselves. You make your livelihood off living vicariously through other people who actually contribute something to society. You are a fucking bottom feeder with a big mouth and WAY too many opinions.



  41. 41

    UM…who the FUCK is Perez to say "WE" (whoever the hell that is supposed to be) believes "family should come first" ? He's Mr. Morals all of a sudden? Just because he has his mother and bizarre geeky sister Barbabra with him at all times, does not mean all families are like that. Heche's KIDS are her family that comes first. She has every right to keep them away from what she feels is negative influence. And that happens to be their grandmother.
