IN AN INTERVIEW WITH DIANE SAWYER, "DESPERATE HOUSWIFE" TERI HATCHER TALKS ABOUT LOVE, UNEMPLOYMENT AND MAKING IT BACK TO THE TOP OF THE HOLLYWOOD HEAP, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3 ON ABC
Also: Chris Cuomo on Bogus Botox Injections That Can Have Life-Threatening Effects;
And: John Quiqones Reports That Some Teeth Bleaching "Addicts" May Pay a Price for Overdoing It.
On this week's "Primetime Live," Diane Sawyer interviews "Desperate Housewife" Teri Hatcher, who has made the ultimate Hollywood comeback. Hatcher saw her stock fall fast after the cancellation of her last television show, but now the actress has reached new heights with a hit series and her first Golden Globe Award. She describes to Sawyer how she made the journey back to the top via a walk down Wisteria Lane. Hatcher also discusses her romantic struggles over the years and the idea she has for trying to make it big in the business world one day. "Primetime Live" airs THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Also: Chris Cuomo reports that the huge demand for Botox has led to an illicit underground industry that has alarmed the medical community and caused law enforcement officials to take bold action. Big profits are being made by producing and injecting patients with potentially life- threatening "bootleg" Botox.
In an exclusive interview, Cuomo talks with Bonnie and Eric Kaplan, a Palm Beach couple who were temporarily paralyzed after receiving injections of fake Botox containing a deadly toxin. "If you could have told me that anything like this could have happened to me or my wife, I wouldn't have taken that risk," says Mr. Kaplan, who must now be fed through a tube. "I wanted to get rid of wrinkles. So instead of turning back the clock, they hit a fast forward button." A U.S. attorney in southern Florida says this isn't just bad medicine, it's a crime, and he's starting to go after the people who are peddling these bogus toxins.
And: Millions of Americans are turning to over-the-counter teeth whitening products in pursuit of a bright smile. John Quiqones reports that some "bleach junkies" who overuse these products may develop unexpected problems.
DIANE SAWYER, CHRIS CUOMO, CYNTHIA MCFADDEN and JOHN QUINONES are the anchors of "Primetime Live." SHELLEY ROSS is the executive producer.
