On "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2006, Winfrey met Kris and Daisy, a young brother and sister whose mother abandoned them seven years prior.

In 1992, Mary Jo Buttafuoco was shot by her husband's teenage mistress Amy Fisher, "the Long Island Lolita." Now Buttafuoco opens up like never before about her unforgettable story of survival and what she thinks about her assailant and ex-husband. Buttafuoco also talks about forgiveness and finding a new love later in life. The episode also visits with memorable Oprah show guest Jenny Lee, the woman addicted to plastic surgery.

Rodney King made headlines in 1991 when he was beaten by police, and again in 1992 with the acquittal of the officers, which incited the race riots in Los Angeles. In his final interview taped only two weeks prior to his untimely death, King, who is joined by his fiancé Cynthia, opens up about his alcohol addiction and how he felt 20 years later about the cops who beat him and the incident that made him famous. Later Kato Kaelin, infamous houseguest of O.J. Simpson, reveals his thoughts on Simpson today and what he said to Simpson on the day of the murders.
