Sunday Morning Magazine with Rodney Lear

Debbi Morgan, Actress and Author Segment #2 (1-27-19)

Debbi Morgan, Emmy Award-winning Actress and Author, The Monkey On My Back. Debbi Morgan is best known as Dr. Angela Hubbard on the long-running soap opera All My Children. She joined Sunday Morning Magazine to discuss her deeply personal memoir. Debbi revealed on-air that early in her family history, an ugly pattern of domestic violence began—which spanned three generation of women. The abuse developed into fear, insecurity, self-doubt, and emotional trauma, which were passed down from one generation to the next. From her maternal grandmother, who was beaten by her husband, to Debbi’s mother, who became pregnant as a young teen and suffered the same abuse as her mother, down to Debbi, who internalized the physical abuse she watched her mother endure. As an adult, Debbi would also face abuse in her relationships.
