Minka recently opened up about her “pretty complicated” relationship with her mom Maureen, who passed away in 2008 from colon cancer.

“She was 5’11″ – legs up to her ears, gorgeous. She got along on that for as long as she could,” Minka told Cosmopolitan (via Us Weekly) about her mother, who used to be a stripper.

Her father, onetime Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay “wanted to try the family thing,” but her mom “was too busy having fun. It wasn’t like he didn’t want to be part of our lives.”

But “by the time [my mom] passed I was holding her. I was with her until her last breath. We made it,” she added about making peace with Maureen.

    This is heavy stuff, almost too heavy for a gossip site.

    poor girl..nothing worse than having a stripper mom. Minka turned out to be a beautiful woman though..she’s probably endured a whole lot mentally because of her mom.

    Umm…being 5”11′ as a woman is not a good thing, it’s a friggin tragedy! Totally man-tall. I’m 5”9′ and I think I’m too tall.

    I love Minka. For having a stripper for a mom and a rockstar for a dad sh came out very classy and naturally beautiful. If you listen to some of her interviews it really shines from her.

    @Melinda:
    real men like taller girls. They have longer legs and prettier faces and most of the time are supermodels.
