Terri Upshaw called from Washington, D. She knows her story — a Shakespearean tale of romance, a runaway daughter and bitter, unforgiving parents — has the Bay Area buzzing. And yet. The story broke in the Washington Post. Upshaw, 55, decided to speak out after she found that her family was opening a Tadich Grill in Washington, where she now lives.
The announcement took her by surprise. She was 23 years old.
They were very set in their ways and so was my father. And that was the end. Gene and Terri married three years later, and had two boys, now 28 and 25, but her parents have never met them. Gene died unexpectedly of pancreatic cancer inbut not even then did anyone in her family reach out to her. It is hard to believe in this day and age. Bush have eaten there. I have been going there for years. However, Brown said he was shocked to hear the the story of Upshaw and her parents.
His advice to the Buich family: Resolve the feud — for the sake of the business if nothing else. That was a reference to the Napa Valley Wine Train fiasco over the summer after employees booted a group of mostly African American women from a ride, claiming they were too loud. Attempts to contact the Buichs went nowhere. Publicist Linda Roth said in an e-mail that she was trying to get a statement.
None appeared. The Yelp site has already lit up with angry reactions, calling out the Buich family.
The odd part is, Upshaw says as a parent, she has some understanding for the initial reaction. He was married, although separated, and in the process of getting a divorce. There were, she said, no promises from Gene, although they married three years later.
She can understand that her parents were dubious about the arrangement, moving cross country with a much older man — Gene was 38 at the time — and still married. And at 23, she was young.
Any parent would be concerned. But she says now, there was never any doubt about the real reason she was thrown out of the family. She believes her father to be an unrepentant racist.
Terri Upshaw says the bitterness from that controversy remains and she has not stayed in contact with the son, who now lives in Florida. Until this story broke, Upshaw endured the sting of rejection from her San Francisco family in silence.
They wondered about their chances of ever meeting their cousins. She visits regularly, she says, but never has the urge to visit Tadich Grill. I think I left my heart there.
