    1. Marissa Robyn

      I would love an update on Jill. Hope she’s doing good. 🙂

  3. Marissa Robyn

    Still no update on her?? Seemed like such a nice girl. Hope she’s doing ok. Felt so bad Her mom never said I love you.

  4. Marissa Robyn

    Guess I’mm still impatient really wish had some update. No update since like 2007. That’s a long time!! Wish her well. I hope her mom says I love you more now.

    I just rewatched this episode and could relate so much to what she said about feeling naive and like she had to do sexual favors for guys so they’d like her more. I used to do (and unfortunately still do) the same thing. I’m from Utah also and know the pressure that comes from being raised in a Mormon community. You’re either in our your out. It is quite common for victims of sexual abuse like Jill to be blamed or not taken seriously, which was evident by the fact the judge gave her ex BF a slap on the wrist. You’re taught to dress modestly so guys don’t have sexual thoughts, and if they do you must’ve provoked it somehow. It’s messed up and no one should have to go through the pain and judgement she did (I know it first hand being raped and blamed for it). I wonder how she is doing today. What happened to me still effects me, in some ways the aftermath and how horribly people treated me hurts worse than rape itself. It’s been 7 years and I’m not “over it.” I wonder if she managed to work through her problems somehow. I hope she’s doing ok!

    I went to her Facebook page and she is doing great. She is now happily married with 2 kids.

    1. Laura Smith

      What’s her Facebook?

  7. Andy

    Her episode was really powerful. Especially at the end when her mom said “I love you.”

  8. Andre

    Anyone else think it’s fucked up that for this episode — in which a young woman struggles to cope with sexual trauma and the pain of being sexually objectified — the official synopsis refers to her first as a “a beautiful woman with a Victoria’s Secret body?” Because I think that’s fucking disgraceful.

    1. Dizzy

      Absofreakinglutely. Totally inappropriate. Sometimes the blurb writers are completely clueless.

      1. Simon

        any update on Jill? Hope she’s okay. She should be around 35 now. Wondering if she is still sober

      2. Kitty Katt

        Exactly Dizzy! It’s absolutely insane to write something like this….and disrespectful IMO.

    2. Sammy

      Honestly. Amen. It reminds me how far we’ve come in the last decade in identifying and calling out rape culture. Still a lot more work to be done.

    3. Richard

      Blurb writers deal with what they can see and what sells. As sick as it maybe Jill’s is an apt description for the masses. Mormon Teenager betrayed by Boyfriend doesn’t have enough sexy adjectives.

  9. Michael Kane

    Hopefully this is not her. Was so happy to see she had a positive update on youtube

  10. John

    It’s interesting that no one here is mentioning what a weirdo her mom is. This ‘inability’ to say I love you to her, when that’s a huge part of what she needed? Reminds me of the episode about the girl who has a feeding tube because she ‘can’t’ swallow.

    Get a grip, lady. I hope she looked inward afterward and saw how she contributed not just because of enablement but also because of the deprivation of what her daughter needed.

  11. meg

    Jill, if you’re reading this I sincerely hope you’re doing well! I’m so sorry for what happened to you in high school. I also went to a Christian high school and the boys were horrible horrible to me. I drank for many years to forget it, too, but now I’ve found so much more hope in the present and in being sober. I hope you have, too. So much love! <3

  12. Kitty Katt

    I can sort of relate to Jill about her mother not being able to say “I love you.” Growing up, my family never said it either. We knew we loved each other but it was just never said. I just think that’s how my parents grew up and that’s how we grew up.
    Fast forward to today, I have 2 kids and I must tell them “I love you” at least a few times a day. It’s when they come out and just say “I love you” to me, for no other reason than to tell me, it melts my heart. They are 21 and 16, but age hasn’t changed them and I am so thankful and blessed that not only do they say it often throughout the day to me, they show me love too.

  13. Richard

    I’d be interested to see how many Intervention episodes deal with Mormon families. There have been a few but it’s not usually stated.

    1. Stefan

      I can think of at least 10. Utah as a whole has a very high per-capita rate of drug use.

  14. Bubbie

    It bothers me how Jill’s mother refuses to acknowledge her taking her teenage daughter out to drink with a fake and being a party buddy instead of a mom played a big part in her addiction

  15. Taylor

    The mother may not be able to say I love you, but the fact that she was so willing to be emotional to me shows she loves her daughter and isn’t completely uncomfortable with emotions. My own mother won’t say I love you but also won’t dare to even get emotional with me. I hope Jill’s mother came to realize that she can snow love with words and I love you is easy to say once she gets out of her comfort zone. And I hope Jill is doing very well.

  16. Angelica

    I just rewatched this episode for the first time in several years and I really saw how smart and self aware Jill was when she wasn’t blackout drunk. It’s been a long time but I really hope she’s still sober. Her father seemed wonderful. Hopefully her mother worked on her emotional issues so she could be there for Jill and the rest of her kids.
