In the documentary, Tina says, “It wasn’t a good life. The good has not made up for the bad.
“I’ve had an abusive life, there is no other way to tell the story. It is a reality. It is a truth. You have, so you have to accept it. “
She continues: “Some people say that the life I have lived and the achievements I have given, the appreciation, are exploding with people. And yes, I should be proud of that. I am.
“But when do you stop being proud? I mean when do you take a slow bow? Just go away? “
