Eminem's former wife Kim Mathers has ditched her shy persona because she's sick of the way her ex-husband portrays her in rap songs and interviews. Mathers recently recorded an interview with US news show 20/20 and now she's sitting down with TV psychologist DR KEITH ABLOW to talk about her turbulent marriage. During a recent taping of the DR KEITH ABLOW SHOW, the bitter ex admits she's tired with the perception people have of her after listening to her ex's vicious attacks. She says, "I've decided to come forward and speak up because of the way that I believe that the world, or the people in general, view me - because of things that have been said about me by MARSHALL (Eminem) on record and in print." Mathers insists she was the victim in the relationship, which was doomed to failure because her husband was an ego-maniac. She explains, "When Marshall's first tour started is when his ego just went poof... He was untouchable. "Every time I talked to him, I wasn't allowed to question him about what was going on. If I did I was just told that I should be grateful that he still talks to me. I just pretty much felt like a piece of c**p. "I want the world to know that I realise I made mistakes. I can't hide them. They're out there, but that I've learned from them and I've grown and that I'm a wonderful caring mom and I just don't want people to pass judgment as soon as they see me or hear my name."
