In the pilot episode of her new web series, Happy Hour, the model couldn’t help but get emotional as she talked about — and eventually apologized — for her shortcomings as a mother to Tony and his sister when they were much younger.
Angel Jones released her latest project for 2019, a new web series called Happy Hour, where she would feature “open, unfiltered, candid, and straight from the heart” conversations with different people —beginning with no less than her own son, Tony Labrusca.
In it, the two talked about their flawed relationship as parent and child, which started from Angel’s separation from her partner, Tony’s dad Boom Labrusca. As a single parent, the model revealed that she used to struggle to provide for her son and his sister’s basic needs.
This was where Angel got candid about her shortcomings as a mother, and how much she regrets it until this very day.
“I want to take this time to apologize. I know that I missed out on a lot because of my misery. It wasn’t your fault. I wish I would have left sooner, so that I could have been happier sooner so that I could be this mother that I’ve always wanted to be for you guys,” said an emotional Angel, who also revealed that her failure as a parent might be partly due to her own mother subjecting her to the same treatment as a child.
“It still bothers me, because I feel that I wasted time trying to be perfect, when I was miserable, and I was a bad mom. I was angry, I wasn’t affectionate. I was just this shell trying to function.”
Nevertheless, the interview ended on a happy note, as both Angel and Tony acknowledged how they have come so far from their bitter past.
