Email a Friend

Carol Burnett talks about her late daughter and about mothering an extraordinary young woman through the pain and joy of her life. Her memoir Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story recounts Carrie and Carol’s bravely going public with Carrie’s drug addiction and recovery when she was a teenager. Carrie lived her adult life of sobriety to the fullest, becoming a successful actress, writer, musician, and director, and her passion for life never wavered as she battled the cancer that took her life at the age of 38.
