America is getting its first look at an adult Jaycee Dugard.

jaycee lee dugard on cover of people

People magazine has Jaycee Dugard on its cover. This is not the image of the 11-year-old blonde we've all seen countless times before ... this time, Jaycee is emerging from the shadows for the first time since she was rescued from her captors.

"I'm so happy to be back with my family," Dugard told the magazine.

She tells the magazine she is living in seclusion with her mother, Terry Probyn, and her two daughters, who police say were fathered by her captor Phillip Garrido. She spends her time riding horses, cooking, and is considering writing a book.

"They live a surprisingly normal life, considering the circumstances," said Terry Probyn's stepmother, Joan Curry, according to the magazine.

The new issue of People magazine hits the stands Friday.

You know I hope she gets paid well for any interviews that she gives. She is a person who has no degree of any sort because of what she went through and so her job prospects could be bleak. I hope she is able to get enough money to give her a small cushion in life.

Oprah doesn’t pay for guests. She has stated how bad she would like this first interview. Oprah: You need to pay this time!

Does she wish she could have aborted her daughters? I wonder if someone will ask this.

I only hope people would step up (whether its Oprah, whoever) and helps this poor young woman get her life back financially by paying for her to attend school or something. She could go back and work on her GED and even get into Jr. College. She may even need some money for all the therapy her and her children need!
