Get ready for a big dose of the shocking truth as "20/20" gets the dirt from the professionals we depend on... who confess what their colleagues do and say behind closed doors, what they really think about you, and how they mess with you if you get on their bad side. Plus, Toni Braxton tells all about her rollercoaster career as a platinum recording artist. Anchored by Chris Cuomo, with reports from Cuomo, Elizabeth Vargas, Jim Avila, Matt Gutman and Nick Watt, "True Confessions" airs on "20/20," FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. Reports include:

Confessions of an Hotelier: From rifling through personal belongings in your room to cleaning sinks with dirty rags and even manipulating the rates and rooms you get, a hotel veteran dishes on what is really going on behind your back at hotels. Chris Cuomo reports.

Confessions of Gym Trainers: Did you ever wonder if the gym offering you that sign-up special is offering the same thing to everybody? Or do thin people get better deals? And what about those "personal" fitness trainers? Matt Gutman has the skinny on getting physical.

Confessions of a Tow Truck Operator: What does it take to tow someone's car on Thanksgiving or on the day of the owner's own funeral, and to employ spotters to snatch vehicles within minutes of being parked? Matthew Pickman is just such a man. A Salt Lake City repo man who documents his adventures on his own YouTube channel, Matt is the face of a despised and dangerous industry. Jim Avila reports.

Confessions of a Broke Diva: From the crazy spending to the bankruptcies to the comeback attempts to her reincarnation as a regular on the private performance circuit, Toni Braxton reveals the triumphs and tribulations of her multi-platinum recording career. Nick Watt reports.

Under the Knife - Confessions of a Surgeon: Botched surgeries, unnecessary procedures, substance abuse... Johns Hopkins surgeon Michael Makary reveals what is going on in some operating rooms. Elizabeth Vargas reports.

Behind the Badge: Confessions of Cops: Do cops really like doughnuts? Do they cover up for each other's dangerous and criminal behavior, like drunk driving? And will they slap you with trumped up charges if they decide they don't like you? Two veteran cops come clean to Jim Avila about life behind the thin blue line.

David Sloan is executive producer of "20/20."
