In this all-new episode, updates include actress, model and reality television personality Brigitte Nielsen who first made headlines in the 80s with her marriage to Sylvester Stallone – the biggest movie star on the planet at the time. Now known to an entirely different generation from her appearances on “The Surreal Life” and “Strange Love,” Brigitte has a new take on life, dishing on everything from why her marriage to Stallone ended, to what she saw in Flavor Flav, plastic surgery and her sobriety.
Up next, Darva Conger, the nurse who became instantly famous in 2000 when she married Rick Rockwell on the first reality show of its kind, “Who Wants To Marry A Multi-Millionaire,” tells all. Today, Darva reveals how she handled the backlash, why she ultimately decided to pose for Playboy and how she will explain it all to her young son one day.
Then, Broadway’s original “Dreamgirl,” Tony nominated actress Sheryl Lee Ralph is a showbiz survivor who learned early on that landing quality work would be an uphill battle. Here she shares the sound advice she was given by Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro, how her unconventional marriage with a Pennsylvania state senator works like a charm, and about the first time she met Diana Ross. Next, paralyzed by accident when she was pushed into a pool just months before her wedding, Rachelle Friedman became known as “The Paralyzed Bride.” Now, Rachelle talks about the day it all happened, how she has adjusted to life, and why she will never reveal the name of the friend who pushed her.
Then, the “Oprah” show studio audience member whose shocking revelation back in 1993 outraged viewers and caused his family to stop speaking to him. Find out where he is now.
