Debbi Morgan has written an memoir, “The Monkey On My Back”, which was releases last year, but it wasn’t until her epic performance in Toni Braxton’s Lifetime Biopic that led us to dig a little deeper into the fantastic actress that we love with the “deep dimples”!

We’ve written about Mrs. Morgan her here a few times on ILOSM, but she was the “scene stealer” in last night’s biopic, “Unbreak My Heart”, where she played a fierce Momma Evelyn!

With so many celebrities writings books and memoirs, we’d lost touch with Debbi Morgan’s story, but as we researched further we read all about the cycle of domestic abuse that plagued her family for generations.

Debbi-Morgan-Monkey-On-My-BackMorgan says her grandmother, mother and aunts all married men who abused them, plus all of her uncles “turned out to be abusive husbands, except for one.”

“Our parents are our first role models. We emulate what we see. So when I kept attracting these same kind of men into my life, I’m not consciously thinking that that’s what I’m doing,” says Morgan, detailing her own struggle with domestic violence.

Morgan says she kept being attracted to violent men, saying she saw them as protectors. “Ultimately, I would find out that they were the person that I needed to be protected from.”
