Emily Estefan was the Red Table Talk, and spoke about the time she says mom Gloria told her not to come out to her elderly grandmother.
“I was like,’Hey, I’m in love with this girl’. “The fist thing you said was,’If you tell your grandma and she dies,her blood is on your hands’.”I wasn’t ready for that,so that’s where my hurt started.I’m never going to forget that”
Emily says she later understood her mother was coming from a place of love and affection. Gloria explains at the table:
“I was trying to protect both my ailing mother from any shock that may affect her health, and Emily from anything that could harm their relationship.”
Gloria regrets her decision. Gloria’s mother died in 2017 at 88 years old.
