When Glanville, 42, mentioned some of the reality star’s claims that her parents had physically abused her as a child, Abraham said, “That’s some of the therapy that we share and we go through. I think there’s different parenting styles.”

Debra and Michael often take care of Abraham’s 6-year-old daughter, Sophia, when she is away on business. But the adult toy maker is no longer concerned with leaving her little girl in her parents’ care.

“My family and I have such a different dynamic now,” the 24-year-old told Glanville. “We’ve talked through a lot of our abuse. Not everyone’s a perfect parent, but we do learn and we grow from that. I’m not trying to be harsh on my family because it does make them sad to think back about how they used to be and some of their choices.”

The “choices” Abraham referred to revolve around her claims that her parents used to beat her with a belt for acting out, leaving bruises and welts all over her body.

“At that time we really didn’t [have a relationship] because of some of the abusive things that had happened,” Abraham said of her painful childhood. “My parents got put into jail, both my mom and my dad.”
