Why Wasn't Vanessa Minnillo's Mother Invited To The Wedding?

| Filed under: Vanessa MinnilloSad Sad

Vanessa Minnillo Estranged Mother

Helen Bondoc lives in a trailer and hasn't seen her daughter, Vanessa Minnillo, she was 9 years old.

We're taking it she doesn't keep up with celebrity news, because she didn't know she was getting married, either.

When shown pictures of her newlywed daughter, she gets emotional:

Oh my goodness, she’s beautiful! She’s changed so much, though I can still see that little scar on her forehead from where she picked at her chicken pox when she was a child. I didn’t have a clue that Vanessa was getting married. We last spoke about 12 years ago, on the phone. I just wanted to talk to her and tell her everything straight about my life. But I still think about her all the time, and I still love her dearly.

So what happened? Why don't they talk anymore?

When Vanessa was 9, Helen dropped her and her brother off at their father's, telling him to "keep them for now."

But she never came back.

Awww, sad!

When asked if she would ever like to meet up with her daughter, she immediately said yes, but fears Vanessa wouldn't oblige.

This is really heart-breaking. A mother can be such an influential part of a daughter's life. We're honestly surprised at how great Vanessa turned out without the mommy figure. Guess it just shows how strong she is.

We hope they can reunite one day. It's never too late to build that bond.

    and you think it is good to have a mother in your life that abandoned you because….

    God you are so stupid….just because you are related to someone by blood does not mean you need to have them in your life if they are bad people….

    dropping your kids off and never coming back is a bad person…..she could have contacted her in the last 10 years and hasn't.

    shut up Perez.

    Sometimes the mother figure is best played by a father. It is not the label, or chromosomes, but your ability to give, guide, and love that creates a positive impact on a child. And her comments are so personal that I really question why any media outlet would insert themselves into the situation. Leaving your kids is not meant to be addressed on a gossip site.

    This type of personal invasion is pretty low.

    hey perez, why don't you have your mother abandon you at a young age and you can see how important that bond will be.i am tired of your "kind" and slightly sarcastic comments you make since you have changed your ways. this website used to be honest and entertaining when you didn't hide your opinion. thats why i don't come here as often, because you sold out and are now so fake

    WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH YOUR WEBSITE????? SLOW AS FUCK. it's not like you have that much traffic anymore.
    It looks terrible in the new format, posts never show up, no one cares for your other dumb websites and we are sick and tired of "read the rest of this bullshit here"

    Are you kidding me? You hope they would be able to reunite?!
    After leaving her and her brother and never speaking to them again, NOW she thinks it would be a great time to see her again…hmmm what a coincidence.
    You are really a fool sometimes…

    This is a private family matter and not for public fucking consumption you shit for brains asshole. Grow the fuck up and one day your balls will drop and you'll be a real man instead of some infantile piece of shit.

    It's pretty inappropriate for you to make any comments on this. It's none of anyone's business but her own.

    God that girl has a headjob head - no wonder Nick married her!!

    I understand this isn't serious journalism but someone needs to edit these articles…missing words, words in the wrong place!

    Re: Boo2134 – I think he writes and posts, but doesn't re-read what he has written. I always tell my students to read everything aloud before you turn it in.

    Mario, Vanessa was abandoned by her biological mother since 9 years old. She's never been a mother to her so why should she invite her to the wedding?

  14. 14

    How do you know she didnt abandon her daughter to go f*ck some guy who promised her a beer???.

  15. 15

    Given how many nasty things you have said about Vanessa over the years and now you are trying to get on her good side. Mario- you need to go stick your head in the sand and hope the tide comes and drowns your nasty diseased ass!

    Vanessa will have closure if she goes and finds her mom again. Find out what happened now that she is an adult and realize people can do some awful things. You can't get past something horrible unless you confront it. Her mom isn't going after her so that means she's not looking to seek her out for money. I would try if I were Vanessa.

  17. 17

    not sure why Mario felt it was his responsibility to tell the world that Vanessa- like quite a few others sadly - had an extremely painful and impactful experience in her childhood
    that is not our business unless Vanessa or anyone else choses to bring up the topic themselves
    that occurance will serve to make Vanessa a strong and loving mother so that no child of hers will ever experience that pain and she will go the extra mile to make sure they always feel loved and secure and wanted

    I am not sure what living in a trailer has to do with anything… but clearly she has/had issues she needed to work out- just a shame it was at the expense of her family. Hopefully they can reunite and maybe that might also help mend some of the issues i'm sure Vanessa has.

  19. 19

    Maybe Vanessa knows her mums story and has has closure with her its up to NOONE to give their opinion on what she should do. It's tacky of her mum to make a public statement especially when shes trying to sound sweet as pie when maybe she's really not…

  20. 20

    it was awkward and uncomfortable when vanessa discussed her estranged mom publicly on her reality special. she did so knowing media would be all over it. it's also sad press hunted the mom down then showed her vanessa's wedding pix in order to elicit emotions for a story. all around sad.

  21. 21

    Kim K's Ugly Hippo Ass.. agree completely!

    The most ridiculous thing I have ever read from you on this website:

    "We're honestly surprised at how great Vanessa turned out without the mommy figure."

    What the hell? That comment is completely inappropriate. Why would you insinuate that people who grow up without mothers would subsequently turn out to be an idiot? Do you think that the children of single fathers or gay dads are going to be not so "great"? Think before your write such ridiculous shit.
