Roseanne star Emma Kenney revealed that she is seeking treatment after “running with a really fast crowd … and doing things that were illegal.”

Now, Sara Gilbert, who plays Kenney’s mom on the hit show, is showing support for her TV daughter. “I am so proud of you,” the host of The Talk said on her daytime talk show today. “We all have demons, and it takes a lot of courage to face them, particularly at 18. I envy you. If I could go back to being 18 and start things to better myself at the pace you’re doing, I would be a better person today.”

She said that “this is amazing, it is a beautiful, beautiful thing.”
