Roseanne's sister Geraldine says she learned about the incest accusations when she saw Roseanne's story on the cover of People magazine. "I saw the magazine article and dealt with our family and felt that we come from pretty common Jewish folk there in Utah," she says. "I came from parents that loved me. I knew I was loved."
Geraldine says it took a long time to get past the accusations. "Roseanne and I had been estranged for 12 years," she says.
Geraldine says she, her other siblings and her parents went to therapy after Roseanne's allegations went public. "What I learned was that hurt people hurt people and that you have to heal your own hurt so you stop hurting other people," she says.
