"There's nothing Hollywood about me when it comes to my family. I didn't hire people. I'm very involved with mom's care. I talk to the doctors, I talk to the nurses, we discuss the findings, we discuss options, she said."
Los Angeles, May 6 - Singer-actress Queen Latifah insists she lives a normal life and spends most of her time caring for her mother, who has an incurable autoimmune disease.

The chat show host's mother Rita Owen was diagnosed with scleroderma, an incurable autoimmune disease that may cause scar tissue to build up on the lungs, last year, reports contactmusic.com.

There's nothing Hollywood about me when it comes to my family. I didn't hire people. I'm very involved with mom's care. I talk to the doctors, I talk to the nurses, we discuss the findings, we discuss options, she said.

I love that lady. We've gotten so close this year, with everything we've been going through. She takes care of me. And now I can take care of her. I'm really thankful I can be there, she added.
