True Bruce Willis DivorceTalk about one big happy family! During Rumer Willis' opening segment on Dancing With The Stars Monday night, her mother Demi Moore, father Bruce Willis and sisters Scout and Tallulah opened up about her upbringing and reflected on how much she's evolved. "When their father and I decided to divorce it probably had the biggest impact on her," Demi said of her 2000 split from Rumer's father, Bruce Willis. "Media attention is tough when you are a kid, it is definitely weird to have that be such public knowledge," Rumer explained in the segment. "A couple times, things would happen in my family — whatever drama it was — I couldn't leave my house for a week. As I got older and people started you know, commenting on how I look, that's when it really started to affect me." "Her self-esteem was nothing," the famous mother declared. "I could only just keep loving her and loving her until she could love herself." "When she said, 'I think I wanna do Dancing With the Stars,' my whole insides, I have to be honest, were screaming 'No,'" Demi continued. "But, one of the most beautiful things that I've witnessed is watching her passion become greater than her fear... It has nothing to do with her being my kid or Bruce's kid, it has everything to do with just who she is." "I'm crazy about Rumer," Bruce also said in the segment. "I love her." Cheers to family!
