When I was 8 yrs old my older cousin told me something that has stayed with me for over 30 years. When I was 8 yrs old my grandma and I watched Wheel of Fortune every evening. I enjoyed spending time with grandma and was fascinated with how beautiful Vanna White was. When my older cousin found out about the nightly time my grandma spent together she was jealous. I remember she told me that it was really one of the nastiest shows on tv. She claimed Vanna White had sex with Pat Sajak and every contestant (even female contestants) prior to taping. She said she was known as the Hollywood whore and how her husband and kids cried all of the time because of it. The story made me cry at the time too. I felt guilty watching Wheel with my grandma for a while after that but eventually moved past it. Looking back, I think that was a really fucked up thing for her to tell me. Thoughts?

R3 I can see that now as an adult but I was a naive kid who liked going to grandma’s house after dinner to watch Wheel.

I agree with you, OP. I had a similar family situation. I was the youngest of 3 grandchildren, and my maternal grandmother favored me pretty blatantly. To be fair to her, we lived only a few houses away, and my mother stayed close to her parents. My two cousins lived a little further away (still not far - maybe 5 miles), and their father, my mother's brother, wasn't especially close to his parents. Grandma saw me a lot more than she saw of my cousins.
Anyway, one of my cousins was 8 years older than me and always very nice, but the age difference was such that we couldn't really be friends. His younger brother, 2 years old than me, was mean to me most of the time. When I was 6, he told me there was no Santa Claus. It was a traumatic experience that took a lot cajoling by my mother to get me to disbelieve.
It didn't occur to me until recently that he was probably jealous. Also, I really was a spoiled mama's boy, so I was an irresistible target.

R6, it’s not anybody’s fault except grandma’s, but it sucks when one child is the clear favorite. My grandmother did that and it was hurtful to the rest of us.

I read a memoir once by a Jewish woman who said as children she and her cousins were all dark-haired and dark-eyed, except for one little blonde, blue-eyed girl. Their grandmother wasn't particularly demonstrative or kind, but she fawned over the blonde girl and always called her "Presh" or "Precious". Oy vey.

OP - I was waiting for the part of the story where your mean, jealous older cousin casually tells you that she overheard Grandma complaining to her mom how she “couldn’t stand that little fairy always flouncing around her lifting room gushing about whatever the fuck Vanna was wearing; but what can you do?“

Your cousin was a petty little bitch. What's she like now? I hope she matured out of such nasty tactics. But sadly, I've seen so many people who were just like that as kids and stayed just like that as adults.

My older, teenage cousin once sang "You Are So Ugly" (to the tune of "You Are So Beautiful") to me, then sprayed but spray in my face. Thank God I didn't go blind or anything.
But this did begin my decades long battle with body dysmorphia, spending tens of thousands of dollars on cosmetic surgery.

I had one cousin on my dads side that was an asshole from infancy on . We all hated him. One day when we were like 9 he started throwing rocks at me and a few of my other cousins. Not little rocks either. I picked up a piece of brick and chunked it right at his face and knocked out a front tooth. He never threw rocks at me again. Ironically ,when we were like 15 or so he "made" me suck his dick . Never dreaming I wanted to for years !

I had a distant cousin in her early teens who came to visit when I was around 5. After eating fresh melon and ice cream, we were playing in the yard and she decided to spin me around by holding me by my ankles. Despite my screaming and begging her to stop, she spun me around until I threw up. I haven't eaten melon since that day.
She became a heavy smoker and died of lung cancer in mid 50s. But, I'm fine with all of that.
I do miss melon.

I hope you plan on confronting her over this at Thanksgiving or Christmas. I think a loud “J’accuse!”, followed by a vicious slap is a great way to start. Then move on to wig pulling and hissing.

I don't think my dad ever got along well with his 2 brothers, but we had family events and I saw all my cousins growing up. I never realized how much of a CUNT one of my uncles was until he expressed **shock** that maaaybe 150-200 people came out to my father's funeral. It wasn't in a "oh, that's so surprising, I'm glad so many people came," but more in a "wow... I'm surprised more than 10 people came" way. It was so rude and unnecessary. I think I've only spoken to that uncle maybe a handful of times since my father's funeral. My father was extremely respected and liked in his professional life, so it didn't surprised me at all.
