Last night Dateline aired a show about my story. It was rough and honest and raw and oh so hard to watch.
I’m really pleased with the way Dateline produced my story. They didn’t sugarcoat it and they asked the tough questions.
It’s always a risk when you give someone your story to tell in whichever way they see fit to tell it. I put my story in the honest hands of Izhar Harpaz. It was a good decision. Not all who’ve tried to tell my story have done it justice.
Izhar and his team, Bobby, Simon, and Guy did a fantastic job! They filmed me for 4 days – long 10 to 12 hour days – and I was only part of their work.
They travelled to Missouri and Kansas and Tennessee and Texas – that I know of. There could have been more.
And Andrea – who could forget Andrea. She was direct, tough and focused. Exactly what she needed to be!
For 37 minutes of film, they put in thousands of hours of work. I am in awe of their skills.
Thank you all for watching, reading and listening. Since the show aired, I’ve had dozens and dozens of women reach out to me and thank me for having the courage to tell my story – that I was telling their story too. That’s why I tell it.
I love you all.
Escape YOUR prisons!
Here are a couple ‘web extras’ – more footage that wasn’t in the episode…
