‘Bold And The Beautiful’ Caroline Spencer Actress Linsey Godrfrey Made A Horrifying Confession
According to a new report from Soapcentral.com, actress Linsey Godfrey (above) who just wrapped up her latest stint as character Caroline Spenser on CBS’ hit soap opera “The Bold And The Beautiful” has decided to make a very shocking and horrifying confession about her past in light of the recent Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal.
Linsey hopped on her official Instagram account to reveal how deeply disturbed she was to hear about the scandal. It turns out that she wasn’t just disturbed because it’s a horrible thing to hear about. It actually hit very close to home with her because it happened to her at a very young age!
She admitted that she was molested by her step father from the ages of 7 years old to 14 years old! This tragic experience of course affected her in other relationships. She explained that she blamed herself when some other guy tried to force himself onto her after she said “no.”
In her Instagram letter,Linsey wrote, ” In light of what’s happening in the news over the past few days with Harvey Weinstein. As I learn more abut the victims and their accounts. Listening to him brush it off in recorded tapes realizing that people turned a blind eye. “Boys will be boys.” That people assisted him in committing these assaults on young women.
I suddenly felt a weight in my chest. A knot in my stomach. My lungs felt as if they were no longer able to expand anymore. I couldn’t breathe. I was fighting constant tears as I went about my day running errands and picking my daughter up from school. I found myself in my doctor’s office in a full blown anxiety attack. I was sobbing. Unable to speak without a stutter.
I started to realize why these stories coming to light hit me so hard. It’s something I’ve never really said out loud before. I am a sexual abuse survivor. My step father who I called “Dad” molested me from the age of 7 until 14 years old. It started small groping and rubbing over my clothes, on my breasts, between my legs and butt.
Even now as I write this, I find it hard to say he rubbed my vagina over my clothes. He would put his tongue in my mouth as I said goodnight to him. One night, I had gotten out of the shower and wrapped myself in a towel and went to speak to my mom about something.
She was blow drying her hair so I laid on her bed to wait. He began to rub my feet. It wasn’t something that alarmed me or made me feel uncomfortable until his hand crept up higher and higher. I remember my breath being gone and the whole world went silent. All I could hear was my own heartbeat getting louder and louder. He put his fingers inside me.
I quickly moved my body hoping that I was mistaken. It all had to be a mistake? It wasn’t. He did it again. This time, more deliberate and forceful. I jumped up screaming and ran to my mom. I screamed what had happened and then ran to my room locking the door and locking myself in my closet. I slept there that night. I never spoke of it again. He became my Voldemort. The irony that his middle name was Damon and he was born on Friday the 13th was never lost on me.
A few months later, I went to visit my sister and met an older boy who was fun and seemed sweet. He took me out drinking and partying. I needed to numb the pain. He got me really drunk one night and took me back to his house. He laid me in his bed and we talked.
We began to kiss, but I was so drunk. So unable to realize what this could turn into. The next thing I knew, he was on top of me and forcing himself inside me. I stopped him. I told him “no” and that I didn’t want to. He persisted. I pushed him off me and begged him to drive me home. I sobbed. I felt disgusting. I felt like it was all my fault. How could I let this happen again? I never spoke of it again.
I silenced myself because I was afraid of ruining other people’s lives. Now at 29, I think about how ridiculous of a thought that is. How could I ever worry about them? They never worried what their actions might do to me. I suffer from extreme Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I have body dysmorphia. I have struggled with healthy weights and not torturing myself over the way I look. I have punished myself for nearly 15 years for things that other people did to me.
I never spoke about it. I was scared people would judge me for being the victim. No more.Today, I share my story in hopes other women will share theirs too. Please, I implore you. Don’t be silent. Speak out against your attacker even if it is as simple as responding to this post #metoo. I love you all. Thank you for Listening.” -Lins.” You guys can view the letter for yourselves on Linsey’s official Instagram account by Clicking Here.
So, Linsey definitely had a lot to confess in that letter. This is definitely a 180 degree turn from the story we last posted about her attempting to do some stand up comedy. In her story, she never mentioned whether or not her step father got arrested or paid for these awful crimes. We could only hope that he did.
In light of this Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal, other actresses have come forward and revealed their awful and emotional stories. Actress Pauley Perette who plays character Abby Sciuto on CBS’hit drama/action show “NCIS” recently admitted that she was raped at the age of 15 by some high school jock.
She wrote on her official Twitter account: “I’ve never met THAT Harvey Weinstein, but I sure do know him. In different shapes, sizes and names. I lost my virginity in a rape when I was 15 by a football player. That’s the ‘power guy’ in high school. And you know what I SAID? What I DID…;? Nothing.”
After that, Pauley went on to describe how her terrible experience affected her moving forward in life. She revealed that it caused her to get into abusive relationships, have a horrible self worth and so on and so forth. She wrote, “My rape led me into a series of abusive relationships, terrible self-worth, and self-blame, dismissing a few groping incidents, allowing myself to be bullied by a powerful man for way too long in a work environment, until I finally said ENOUGH.”
She ended her Twitter letter by saying that these abusers need to be stopped. She wrote, “These predators must be stopped and we must start respecting each other’s humanity and dismissing the illusion of power that makes abusers think they are untouchable.”
