These are opinions only:
Lisa Marie was only in Scn because her Mother put her in.
At least in her early teen years, LMP was already into drugs( at Apple School ).
I believe that drugs were/are LMPs drug of choice, not scn.
LMP was a pretty, sweet young girl. She was raised by scn nannies.
Her Mom, Priscilla, was young and extraordinarily beautiful, and wealthy. What do you think Priscilla was doing all the time LMP was growing up?
Living her own life and letting COS guide Lisa.
Neither one of them is very smart, and that is a true fact.
Lisa Marie could be thrown back to the wolves easily. She most likely has felt that drugs were her escape from their control, and I toadly relate to that idea.
Were LMP ever to call upon me, I would be by her side. I feel sad for her and the condition that her life is in.
A sweet young girl has been severely damaged by circumstances not of her own making. Sigh.
I never knew LMP, but there was a time Priscilla spent many hours at AOLA Ethics with Mike Howson and as his senior, I overheard a lot.
Based on that, I personally think Priscilla is clever, learns easily and has a terrific business mind. She doesn't miss details that others might glide by and I think she's quite intelligent.
Based on the conversations I overheard and things I read in Ethics about her, I am also certain that Priscilla loves Lisa Marie deeply and always has. Her daughter is absolutely precious to her. Whether Priscilla ever let on how deeply she felt, I don't know, nor do I know how much scn and being a celebrity interfered with her being a good mother. What I do know is that Lisa Marie was on her mind a lot and Priscilla earnestly wanted to do all she could to ensure she had a good life.
Her heart was in the right place with her daughter. It was never otherwise. Scientology and celebritydom messed with that, but Priscilla absolutely loves Lisa Marie dearly and always has.
