Demi Lovato’s TV Mom is Proud of Her Accomplishments

Demi Lovato is lucky that she sort of has two moms—her real mom and her TV mom. Maria Canals-Barrera played Demi’s TV mom on the hit Disney TV movie Camp Rock, and she still checks in on the actress. She said recently how proud she is of Demi’s recent accomplishments—with regard to seeking help when she so desperately needed it.

According to Hollywood Life, Canals-Barrero had the following to say about her former on-screen daughter”

Demi went through some stuff, you know I played her mom on “Camp Rock,” I’m just so proud of her for getting the help that she needs.

In addition to Demi Lovato, Maria Canals-Barrero also played TV mom to Selena Gomez during her time on Wizards of Waverly Place. She recognizes that kids can always slip up, but that they’re typically very good people on the inside. She says her TV kids even have a relationship with her own two children.

It’s nice that Demi Lovato has the encouragement of her TV mom in addition to her own family. When one goes through rehab for the issues she battles—depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and self-mutilation by cutting—life can be especially challenging. Since leaving rehab, all the support she has received is vitally important to her continued recovery—and one can never have too much of it. Hopefully the support of Demi Lovato’s TV mom, along with that of her own family and friends, will help keep her headed down that bumpy road toward recovery.
