(eerie music) – Two years ago, Aaron
Carter came to The Doctors to confront his drug addiction. But today he says its
time to save his mom. Aaron says she’s an alcoholic. He’s afraid for her life. So in a Doctors exclusive,
we sat down with Jane Carter. (pop music) – [Jane] Being the a mother of pop stars is like living in a tornado. I first started drinking in high school. That was the thing to do in a small town, where I grew up everybody did it. Through the nineties I was
really involved in my career. As the mom of the Carter kids, I was the glue that held
the family together. At that point it was
just a few shots a day. But when I came home from the road, I was definitely go out and get a bottle. And I’d hide it. I would hide it. And then I’d go back on the
road and go back to work. And I was really proud of myself. It worked for quite a while. My drinking started getting worse when my husband started cheating on me. That’s how I dealt with it. After the divorce I was totally vilified. They accused me of not
caring about my kids. (loud slams) How do you think you would feel, if one day you woke up and
your whole career was gone, your family was gone. Everything wiped out in a instant. My family was destroyed. That’s why I turned to drinking. I was doing a liter a day. I felt like, everybody already
thinks I’m a piece of dirt. I can just go crazy. Who cares if I live or die? At this point in time, I would drink everyday. I usually go through a
whole pint of vodka by noon. My drinking has affected my family. I get mean. I can’t talk to Nick. He done, because I said bad things about his wife. If I don’t drink I crave it. I have to have it, just a little bit. I don’t think I can be
happy without alcohol. – Please welcome Aaron’s
mom, Jane, to the show. (applause)
It’s good to meet you Jane. – Thank you. Sorry– I’m just a big baby. – [Dr. Stork] You have
nothing to apologize for. – Now you know why I cry so much. (laugh) – We got very emotional,
just watching the tape. What were you thinking there, Jane? – Not my reality in my head. – [Dr. Ho] What is the
reality in your head? – I think that I’m
tough, and I’m surviving, and I’m doing the best that I can, with what God has given me. – You may feel helpless, and we have a lot to talk about, but when you look at your
son, you see how far he’s come in two years, do you believe? Do you have hope, that you can get to a place
where alcohol isn’t ruining your life, isn’t dictating your life? – I would love that. I would love that. – Well, just by being here. That’s an important first step. And also, part of that first step
is being really honest with what’s going on. Tell us a little bit about
what your life is like now. – Just get into it mom.
Just, just, just go. This Is a conversation,
this isn’t an interview. – My life, um– – [Aaron] Just tell them. Just talk. – I get up in the morning.
I get up like, real early. – Tell them the truth. – Four, five o’clock. I guess I’ve always been a early riser. First thing I want to
do is-is have a drink. And I drink vodka with kool aid. And so you don’t really taste the vodka. And it gets my motor running. And I feel like, oh
okay, I feel really good. Getting some stuff done around the house. And then I know that I have to eat something by like, noon. So, then I eat, and then I take a nap. And then I get up– – [Aaron] To sober up – Yeah to sober up. And then I get up and I go
to work, and I’m a server, at a restaurant. – She’s a server, at a restaurant. After giving up her life for, her dreams, for me and my brother. – I’m not ashamed of it. – I am.
– There’s not– I’m not. – I think, I think its
commendable, but at the same. – It’s a job (mumbles) – I think, I think that its commendable, there’s nothing wrong, I’ve dated girls, that were servers. That were great women. – Any kind of work is,
is good for the soul. – If you’re working you’re working.
