Now Kiki, I want to talk more about those early days of your career and the way your parents really shaped your trajectory. You know, some people may not know that your parents were actors themselves, but when you and your siblings were born, they set aside performing for more steady careers and later when it became clear that you had so much promise as a child's actor, they sold their house and moved the family to Pasadena. What do you remember about that period? That's a lot of change they took on to help you pursue your dreams. Did that weigh on you at all? No. That didn't whale me until many years later. I was much too young. I think what I was just thinking about was we going on the road trip going with my family. We're about to have some fun. I can't wait to be acting. We're going to be living in California. I'm so glad for us all to be here together because my parents worked so much in Illinois that I was also excited about the fact that we were going to meet my siblings when going to get them all to ourselves. And so I was very excited. So did your parents stop working when they moved to California? Did they find different types of jobs out here? Were they strictly focused on you? So both of my parents worked back in Illinois. And so when we first moved to California, the idea was for my dad to find a job and then for my mom to continue to work with me more full time. And then my older sister, she was really missing her just her old life and having her freshman year of high school. So my parents said, hey, you can stay in Chicago for another year to experience your freshman year. Wow. And then when you, you know, after that, you got to come back because we're very tight knit family. And then the twins, my little brother and sister, they weren't just in school yet. So I remember them having like babysitters on the set of Aquila and the bee and things like that. But ultimately what happened is that it just hit a point where my dad could no longer do a job because if he did a job, then there would be nobody to take care of my older sister and my younger siblings. Because my mom was always with me. So it was like, you know, just we were all of our roles were switched. I became the financial breadwinner because my career was bringing in the most money. And my parents wanted to support me, but they couldn't have their own jobs because their own jobs would not even allow them to really be able to sustain a stable household. So everybody's positions were flipped upside down, which is why some years after that, I did start to feel pressure because I started to realize that I was a financial breadwinner and that if I didn't have a job who would have a job, you know, or how could my parents have a job? Well, how can we sustain the same lifestyle, even if they did have a job? Because I was making the kind of money that many people never make. So it was just kind of like, it put us in a crazy position. Was there a time where your childhood years as an actor were, I don't know, annoying where you were trying to get out of that shadow. And what have you sort of come to appreciate about that time in terms of how it's shaped you to be the actor you are today? Um, you know, I remember there was something that people were saying when I came out in time and they said rising star and that offended some people that they said rising star and I'm like, well shit, I don't want to be at my destination. You know, right. Right. If after 20 years I'm still considered rising Star Wars, what the hell y'all see me going? If this is I'm continuously, I'm still continuously rising. I'm about to be at the goddamn stratosphere. So for me, I don't know if I hated the shadow of it. I think I was always proud of the work I did as a kid. I think what I hated was that people thought it should end there. Child actors are so often seen as has beens. Especially ones that have reached any type of major success, you know what I mean? Had their own TV shows or, you know, household names or anything like that. Once that chapter is over, people are like, oh, I remember when. And it's like, I'm only 18 years old. And so I think that for me was a little bit weird because it's just like, that was just one chapter of my life. You know, and even now, I still don't feel like I've reached the best chapters of my life. You know what I mean? I'm approaching 30 and 2023, and it's like, this deal is just the beginning for me. So I think that was the thing was dealing with other people, just trying to constantly put their perceptions of what my life should be like and being able to decide to remove myself from that and still maintain my sense of self is something I'm very proud of myself to have been able to do because I think that's difficult. You know, it's difficult for everybody to keep telling you who you are. Yeah. Yeah. Well, in addition to know, you had a lot of projects on your plate this year. And I'm going to kindly ask that my editor not listen to this because I don't want them to expect this kind of output. But you voiced the character in light year, which was Pixar's latest addition to the Toy Story series. You starred in the thriller Alice, you took on a TV host for NBC's game show password. I'm curious how you decide what's worth taking on. And what are you after at this point in your career? I take things on that I feel excited about. As simple as that, things that I'm excited about things that I want to do. Things that I haven't done before, things that I think I'll have fun doing. You know, for me, drove me for so many years is making sure that I could create a sustainable or stable brand that can then serve as the business model for me as a business woman. And I think that I've been able to successfully do that where the brand is Kiki Palmer and if I were to put an example behind it, it would be like, you know, keep Palmer's Mickey Mouse and I'm Walt Disney. And that's to me like what I want my future to be is that I'm somebody that people can look to in terms of knowing how to market how to build a brand, how to establish IP, how to create characters how to tell stories how to build marketing stories as well as narrative stories and just be able to be a real genuine creative force on a cerebral level. Not just a performer, you know what I'm saying? Like, not just be the animator, but actually be the person that's sitting at the table, making the major decisions. Yeah, I think what these earlier stages of my career and where I am now has really all been about is establishing my brand and my ability to navigate the industry and create a sustainable career for myself. Well, to sort of talk about that, the person that you present versus being the master, I'm curious because the Internet loves you, you have fans that are always calling for you to take on a new role via the Internet or they're turning your interviews into memes. And I'm sort of curious, people are drawn to your authenticity, but when people come to expect you to react to what's going on in the world with something funny or silly. How do you keep that from becoming a performance? I do think once people think that you are funny, you could be saying the most serious thing ever and they think that it's gonna be funny. So it's like there's not much that you can do about how people are gonna perceive you like for instance. I did not mean to be funny with sorry to this man. Sorry to this man is a viral moment from a Vanity Fair interview when Kiki was shown a picture of former vice president Dick Cheney. I don't know who this man is. I mean, he could be walking down the street. I wouldn't, I wouldn't know a thing. Sorry to this man. You know, there's like nothing in my bones that was like time to drop a little humor here. Like that was so genuine on all levels of like, hell, I'm sorry. I don't know who this man is truly. And so I hope that nobody's pissed at me for not knowing who this man is and he's important. So that was just such a genuine moment that I don't know why people thought that funny and it was just something that was out of my control. And so, hey, it is what it is, so I think for me, you know, I just try my best to be genuine, authentic, all you can do is just keep being you. Right. I mean, if your performance and nope is sort of a turning point in your career, what does the next half of your career look like to you? What are you after? I'm hoping it's a hodgepodge between Dick Clark, Oprah Winfrey and Ron Howard slash Jordan Peele. That's what I'm hoping, okay? I'm hoping that there is some ownership, some creating spaces for the next generation, some cool fun, original IP, as well as being able to be a host and have fun, you know, bring fun shows, games, things to the forefront, like I'm just in the middle of everything and that's why I have to bring so many names together to say who I am because I really am a unique hodgepodge of a lot of the things that I admire. You know, I love what Dick Clark was able to do in terms of being a host and creating a brand and creating an identity of things that people can look towards for many, many years to come. Very iconic things. That's exciting to me, especially to be able to do that for my culture as it pertains to Gen Z millennials and bipoc people. Like I just would love to be able to do that. And then I love Oprah Winfrey for being a voice for saying things that are important, but also being something that people feel connected to and that to me is just like so cool to be able to be a voice in that way to be somebody that people just want to hang out with and they live a room on a Saturday afternoon. And then when I look at people like Ron Howard and Jordan Peele, I mean, I love Ron Howard for being a child star. I mean, I used to watch him on Andy Griffin with my dad and then he became who he is today from American Graffiti to directing into producing and just that's the way you want to do in the same thing with Jordan going from being a comedian and being somebody that people thought only did one thing to then transforming an entire genre and offering something that wouldn't otherwise have been offered. So for me, I kind of like look at all those critical pieces that those people have offered to me and I want to be able to somewhat do the same in all the different fields that I've been able to pay for myself. You didn't mention Beyoncé and you know I know you have a singing career, is that still something you want to keep proceeding to? It is. It is. And for me, it has to come into the form of also the theater. It has to also have that the actress and so I'm very excited about, you know, what I can do with music as it pertains to storytelling as well. You know, when I did starve for Fox, I really loved. And I know my audience really loves seeing me in that narrative story with music. And so I'm very excited about exploring even more of that. So I'm glad you brought that up. So yes, there's definitely, you know, Beyoncé is my girl alien superstar. That is what you are. Well, to sort of combine those thoughts and I'm not trying to generate headlines, this is for me and my happiness. Whoopi Goldberg announced recently that she's working on a third film of sister act. And she'd love for you to star in it alongside lizzo and Nicki Minaj. Like, what was your reaction to that and how do we make this happen? How are we actually with Whoopi, what do I sign on the dotted line? Because we'll be on writing. I'm ready for whatever that you need from me. Okay, Whoopi is an egot when Whoopi had her own one woman show. Whoopi hosted the Oscars. Whoopi is everything. So for her to mention me for the system, I mean, I'm here for whatever that needs to be done. Please. It was awesome. And I'm here for lizzo and the Nicki Minaj, but all is well. We need to find a way to get this interview

The Democrats' Big Energy Mistake

"You know, if we would have, if we wouldn't have closed down Keystone XL pipeline, if we would have made it wouldn't have made it an absolute nightmare for oil and gas companies to continue drilling and right here in the United States, you know, everything would be hunky Dory, but instead what we did as soon as we got into office, we shut down all the Trump's policies because of the truth of the matter is we want you guys to suffer because we want to transition this great experiment called the United States and of America into something that we wanted all along. We want the elites. We want the haves and the have nots. They're trying to transform society and they think that you're dumb enough to keep falling for this stuff. But a lot of people are waking up.

The Battle Between Liberty and Tyrany

"You're the president. And you sit in the highest office Biden. I get it. But you're still a servant. You still serve we the people. This is still a government of for and by the people. And this is what those of you that might be listening in perhaps you're a Democrat. This is what this is what I want you to understand. The party, the Democrat party as it exists today doesn't care about you. They care about reigning over you. You're not, it's like being an inmate. You're not really a person to these people. You're just a number. To get done, whatever it is that they would like to accomplish. That's all you are. A lot of smart Democrats, a lot of loving Democrats, but to the left you're useful idiot. They have no intention in making your lives better. None. Whatsoever. They are totally obsessed with power. By it, they're going to give us a warning. No, no, no, no, no. You derive your power run claim or The White House does. From the consent of the governed. And that's what we're going to be checking. What we're going to be checking on Tuesday. You know, I've been talking about this as a battle between liberty and tyranny, and it is. What we are facing is a battle between liberty and tyranny. But I got to tell you in Dennis prager wrote about this. What we've endured over the last few years is a basically the left was trying to warm us up to getting, they wanted us to get used to the fact that we were going to be living in a police state.

How Important Is Freedom to You?

"Guys, listen, I'm not necessarily a better man, but I've been throwing 25 here, 50 there, this, I'm donating to racist, people I never heard of. Places that I never thought I would be donating to why because freedom is that important to me. And I hope that it's that important to you as well. We have an opportunity to kick booty like you can never like you would never imagine and we need to do so. Everything that left is spewing isn't working. I'm so thankful that Biden gave another speech. I can't even handle listening to it. I'm not gonna lie to you, but I'm so thankful that he gave it. Because every time he opens his mouth, I think he motivates people on the right. People are tired. People are fed up. People know what's going on. People know that it's just an act. People understand what they've been doing as a matter of fact, I'm gonna get to in this hour. There's a story by a substack from a black gentleman who was a Democrat and then turned independent and now he's like, I'm voting Republican for the very first time. And he outlines the reason why. This is a guy that wanted to remain Democrat. He wants to go back to the Democrat party technically. I don't think it'll happen. But I'll give you the reasons as to why he flipped.

It's Over for the Donkeys

"We're so close to the November 8th election. I am absolutely giddy. I can't even hide it. I can't lie to you. I won't lie to it. I lied to you. I think I wouldn't lie to you anyway. But I think it's over for the donkeys. We're gonna get into it. At least for this term. And then we're gonna have to fight like hail to make sure that we restore this constitutional republic, not a democracy, as Biden said, 37 times in his speech, but a constitutional republic. We don't have a democracy. This is not mob rule. I understand that democracy is our voting process where everyone gets to play a part in this great country and in our system, but we don't have a democracy. We don't have mob rule mob rule is what we would have seen in 2020 when Black Lives Matter Inc and antifa moms across the country tried to scare us all into voting one way or staying home. That's not what that's not what we have. That is that's a democracy or that would be a democracy. We have a constitutional republic and what we're going to do on November 8th is fight to restore that constitutional republic. And I think the I think the Democrats are in for some trouble and listen, I don't want to get up, I don't want to get in front of my skis as they say. All of the polling doesn't matter unless you show up to vote. And unless you take somebody with you. But I am, I am confident that we are going to, listen, I think the house is a foregone conclusion. We're still fighting for governorships across the country. We're still fighting and some of these Senate races, but I do believe the polling is lacking when it comes to Republicans a little bit even traffic. The one of the best polars, if not the best polar and the entire country has admitted as much, but the numbers look good and as long as you show up at least we can stop the bleeding or slow the bleeding.

DeSantis flies two planes of migrants to Marthas Vineyard; Karine Jean

"Brandon Tatum is a 7 year veteran of the Tucson police department. He's a YouTube sensation with 1.9 million subscribers. He started blacks up with Candace Owens and now he's tackling his biggest assignment yet. This is the officer Tatum show. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the officer Tatum show. I got so much to talk about. Today I want to hit on a few pointers. When it comes to Ron DeSantis, governor Abbott sending illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard and some of these liberal self proclaimed sanctuary states. Now, if you've been watching the news or paying attention at all, you will realize that there were illegal aliens who were sent to Martha's Vineyard. Now, if you don't know what Martha's venue is, just imagine a place where all the wealthy people have their guesthouses and or vacation homes and Obama lived there. I'm sure Oprah Winfrey got a house there. All of these mega millionaires and billionaires have property at Martha's Vineyard. I would argue that it's an exclusive location where only wealthy people reside. Now I'm not going to lie and say I don't know people that live in Martha's Vineyard. I at least know one person that has a house in Martha's Vineyard that they don't even live at most of the time. So you can imagine that they are a billionaire. However, the ploy by desantis and governor Abbott sending some of these illegal aliens to multiple locations, I think, is petty, but I'm here for the pettiness. The only way that these people are going to get a taste of their own medicine is when we start being just as pity as they're being. I find it quite interesting. That they cry from the mountaintop. We need to, we need to have immigrants. Republicans are racist. They don't care about people. These people just looking for opportunities. And then when the opportunities are presented to be provided for by them, now it's a crisis. People in Martha's Vineyard network and you probably have to at least be worth several $1 million to even have a place in Martha's Vineyard. Remember all the stuff people are talking I don't let them in the border. No, no, no, let them stay in your vacation home. You're 15,000 square foot vacation home that you only visit for three months out of the year. How about you let their legals alien stay there? Remember when you were talking all that trash about president Donald Trump saying he's a racist for not wanting people to come over here. Oh, now it's in your backyard now you are concerned. See, because I think it's not fair that the ones who are advocating for open borders the most are not affected the most by open border policy. If you look at it, you say, I mean it does illegal aliens coming through Texas coming through California. Coming through Arizona, many of them ended up in Florida. What are the chances that they're going to make it up to Chicago? What are the chances that they're going to make it up to Northern California? Some of these places, they're going to settle in a place that's closest and most conducive for them to settle in. And you know who's going to take the burden of those issues, the taxpayer. Where do you think these people go to school? When they bring their kids over here, where do you think they go to school? They ain't homeschooling them. They're going to school with your kids. And then when the teachers aren't getting paid enough and they're burdened to the bone, why do you think that's the case? Because we got an influx of people in our country that don't belong here. And we really don't have the resources to take care of them. Man, you think they're not bumping and grinding and pumping and sweating. They haven't kids too. And they having a lot of kids. You think they weren't contraceptive. You think they may not say that other word. You think they're doing the Afghanistan like Joe Biden? They probably are, because. They did. They may not say it. Y'all know what I'm talking about. They're removal game is on trash mode. So I bet you a $1 million they're having a lot of kids. And where do you think they go? When they're giving birth to children, they go to the hospital. And your insurance, or if you don't have insurance, you paid out of pocket for the birth of your child and your second child in your third child. On their 7th kid, who do you think is paying for it? They don't have a job, many of them, they don't have jobs, they don't have a social security number. They can't get a wicked work anywhere. A lot of them are working under the table. They don't have insurance. But that pregnancy that high risk pregnancy is 40, $50,000. Who is paying for it? Okay. I'm just wondering where you're paying attention. Are you awake? And I'm not saying in any form of fashion that we should be mean to people. And we should hate people. How dare you want to be in America? I understand why you want to be in America. However, we can't just let everybody come into America. We can't just let everybody do it. Let me just give you an example. I gave this example at a university that I was speaking at. And I said, you pay

"Through 25 seasons. Hey. 4561 episodes. I believe The Oprah Winfrey Show was one of the greatest classrooms in the world. I really never thought of it that way. The aha moments, the breakthroughs, the LOLs, the connections, the occasional, ugly cry. I miss him so terribly, I miss every single minute. The moments that mattered. The eye opening life lessons. Never allow them to take you somewhere else. I'm bringing them back. It's time to open the vault. I personally chosen these classic episodes to share with you again. Every single person you ever will meet, shares that common desire. They want to know. Do you see me? Do you hear me? That's what I say mean anything to you. You are listening to The Oprah Winfrey Show, the podcast. They are women just like so many of you who are watching us right now. They worry about their kids. They worry about the bills and the laundry and their jobs while trying to also make sure nothing falls through the cracks. The difference is they are trying to do it from 7000 miles away as they also Dodge bullets live in barracks and fight terrorists. Now, alarming new reports are exposing a harsh reality that many women face when they come home. It is an issue that you will undoubtedly find shocking, and it demands our attention. Today, there are 1.8 million female veterans who've served in the United States military 230,000 have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. 30,000 of them are single mothers. And now, female soldiers are returning home in record numbers, wounded and in desperate need of help. We are a system that was set up for men before they were an extensive number of women serving in the military. That very system is now struggling to provide solutions to problems specific to women. The statistics are staggering one in three female soldiers experienced sexual trauma or rape while serving in the military. One in three. And of those 80 to 90% said that they never reported the sexual trauma while they were on military status. When we first went to war in Iraq, I think Americans were surprised to see so many women fighting on the front lines. Today, there is an unprecedented number of female that who are left physically and psychologically damaged. Some experts say VA hospitals are overwhelmed and ill equipped to treat women. We can not improve and renovate a women's healthcare clinics fast enough because the women are coming through the doors right now and we're trying to ramp up our services at the exact same time. Long deployments are wreaking havoc on military marriages. Female soldiers on active duty are three times more likely to get divorced than their male counterparts. And some service women come home to bitter custody battles. Many end up losing their children. And another growing problem, homelessness is a real issue for a female veterans, the number of female veterans has doubled in the last decade. Experts believe there are at least 6500 women vets living in their cars in shelters sleeping on the streets. Female soldiers are two times more likely to become homeless than male veterans. We really see the problem of homelessness among veterans as a national shame. We are all dishonored any time a veteran sleeps on the very same streets that he or she has defended. That strikes me as so true, doesn't it, for all of you two? That we're all dishonored when a veteran has to sleep on the streets. Now take a look at this picture taken four years ago at a September 11th memorial. You can feel her pride. Today, this woman is 32 and living in her car. Food. I like to call it my kitchen. And this has like stuff that I can heat up and eat snacks, microwaves are very easily accessible. All times a night any time of night. So a lot of my food is microwavable. Alicia is a retired air force staff sergeant. She's proud to say she has served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and that she worked at The Pentagon. But for a year now, Alicia has been homeless for the past 6 weeks, she's been living in a car. She rents for $10 a day. I have slept in the most. Dangerous places with.

We still have to define family operationally, not biologically. Mmm um. You know, I've been dog has puppies. You don't say it's a mother. It's what the does that makes it a mother? Or a father or a brother or a sister. It's behavior that's the truth. So Andrew vox writes in another chance to get it right when he speaks of children. Children of the world, he says, future flowers now seeds, some hand raised nourished and love rich and ground. Others toss carelessly on the coldest concrete, struggling beneath Darwin's dispassionate sunlight. Each unique snowflake, individualized, and all the same. Our race, the human race, one color, many shades, treasures to some toys to others. They will reach the stars and stalk the shadows. What children are more than anything else is this. Another chance for our flawed species, another chance to get it right. I want to thank you as a friend because you've been very helpful to me in my own process of healing. And I have to say that I've come to terms, I think, with dealing with the anger for a long time, it was hard for me to even be angry because I would think getting angry was going to make people not like me, not love me and all of that. So you've been really instrumental in my process of healing. And I thank you for that. Well, as a friend, then would you let me say, I'm sorry, mom about making the crack about your cooking? That's right, 'cause we all gotta go home sometimes. Thank you, Andrew vox. Thank you, everybody. I'm Oprah Winfrey, and you've been listening to The Oprah Winfrey Show, the podcast.

"winfrey" Discussed on The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Podcast

"Old. I was working at a Payless shoe source. This man walked into the store, right around closing time, and the second he walked in, I just knew something was wrong. Yeah. My body, my instinct, everything in my being was saying, run. Just run out of the store. The hairs rose on your arm. You knew it. You felt whatever that energy is when evil has its presence. I felt it. And I second guessed it because I didn't want to be mean. I didn't want to be in polite. That was actress Gabrielle Union who shared with us her story of surviving a brutal rape. And what do you want to say to women who, all of us, myself included, who are conditioned to be nice, we just want to be nice. There's no question. This is what the culture teaches, which is that women have to be nice all the time. You have to engage. If I say something to you in public, you have to respond. You can't be a bitch. You can't be mean. Yeah. And the fact is that men at core are afraid that women will laugh at them. And women at core are afraid that men will kill them. And often believe that if you're not nice, you increase the likelihood of danger and risk when in fact the exact opposite is true. It's when you're nice that you open up and give information that you engage with someone you don't want to talk to. Here she doesn't want to let someone into the store. And for fear of being perceived as not nice, she opens the door and lets him in. And it ultimately leads to a rape. I have not heard of one case in my entire career where someone was raped or murdered because they weren't nice. In other words, that's not the thing that motivates rape and murder. But I've heard of many, many cases where someone was victimized because they were open to the continued conversation with someone they didn't feel good about talking to. And didn't listen to the first. Um. Didn't listen to the first feeling. Even she said, I second guessed it. I second guessed it. Second guessed it. All right, earlier we were talking to Dottie and you said the restraining orders can create a false sense of security. Dottie said that. And her tape. Yeah, they're not right for every case at all. A woman who rejects a man face to face as you did, if he can't accept that rejection, then he sure can't accept the rejection from the court, where basically the court is saying to him, you're not good enough for daddy. You're not lovable, pushing all of the great pain buttons that he's got. And so men who are allergic to rejection, don't do well with restraining orders. And if you're using a restraining order in order to stop a homicide, it's the wrong piece of paper. It won't do it. Pieces of paper won't do that. If you're using it because you're dealing with someone who's reasonable enough to listen to a restraining order, usually the issue has never come up. Reasonable people don't need restraining orders. So it's not perfect for all cases. They're issued at the rate of a thousand a day in the United States. And yet, every year, hundreds of women are found murdered with a restraining order in their purse or restraining order on their bedside table. All I'm saying is it's not perfect for every case. And also, doesn't it as in the case of Dottie, give a false sense of security? It does. In fact, one of the most important things we tell people who do get restraining orders is in the time immediately after it, which daddy knows very well, that is when your risk is greatest. Immediately after the restraining order. Why? Because he's just been rejected and his reaction. Some people will react just fine and leave you alone and some won't. And so this is the time you've done something very provocative. Restraining orders basically are a strategy of war. They are not a strategy of peace. And so they are right for some cases, but not right for every case. I'll tell you what happens. They're always right for police officers. They get the woman out of the office. Go get a restraining order, prove to me that you really don't want to see him again. So they're always right for prosecutors, too. They're not always right for the woman who gets them. Well, there really is no way to count the number of lives that have been saved by this book, the gift of fear, because after hearing Gavin's message, so many people told us that when they spotted a red flag or had a feeling something was off, that something's not right here. They did follow their gut. So thank you, Gavin de Becker for reminding us of that. You just said yourself. Thank you.

"25 seasons. Hey. 4561 episodes. I believe The Oprah Winfrey Show was one of the greatest classrooms in the world. I really never thought of it that way. The aha moments, the breakthroughs, the LOLs, the connections, the occasional, ugly cry. I miss him so terribly, I miss it every single minute. The moments that mattered. The eye opening, life lessons. Never allow them to take you somewhere else. I'm bringing them back. It's time to open the vault. I personally chose in these classic episodes to share with you again. Every single person you ever will meet, shares that common desire. They want to know. Do you see me? Do you hear me? That's what I say mean anything to you. You are listening to The Oprah Winfrey Show. The podcast. I don't want to waste any time today. I've absolutely no doubt that something is going to be said here in the next 60 minutes that will save a lot of lives. What if I told you that there is one weapon that's proven to prevent most crimes before they happen? Wouldn't you run out right now and get that? If I said, proven, proven. World renowned security expert Gavin de Becker. He's so good. I use it myself, says you already have that weapon. He calls it the gift of fear. For years on this show, since the last time you were here, I can't even remember the last time you were here. Every time somebody tells a story of some violent attack or some circumstances they've been in, I always say, when did you really know something was going on? Because I remember the story that you tell in the very beginning of your book about Kelly, what's your name? Kelly? Yes. Good memory. Yeah. Everybody knows. You know, I've done that for 30 years. Ask people after they were victimized. Was there anything you knew? Was there anything you felt beforehand? And most people say to me, no, it came out of nowhere. And then if I'm quiet, if I take a breath, here come all these details. I did know when I met that guy. I did know when I walked in that parking lot. I did have a feeling when such and such. And we're just like every other creature on earth. We get a signal prior to violence. There are pre incident indicators, things that happen before violence occurs. Well, I've told the story of Kelly many times in many different situations on air and off. Can you just summarize the Kelly story? Maybe the shortest one I can okay. She was coming home from shopping. It was nighttime. She came to her door and the door to her building was unlocked. It's supposed to be locked. So that was the first signal she got. Her neighbors had left it unlocked. She opened it, locked it behind her, walked upstairs, a bag of cat food that she had bought broke and cans rolled down stairs. And somebody from downstairs said, hey, I'll bring it up, and the minute she heard that man's voice, she didn't like him. Right. And then she spent the whole rest of the time talking herself out of it. A nice friendly guy came up the stairs. He said, hey, I've got the cat food for you. We've got a hungry cat upstairs. She should have said and could have thought, we don't have a cat at all, but he was trying to cause some belief that they were together in this thing. And the whole time she was saying to herself, jeez, a nice guy, why do I feel this way? Why do I feel this way talking herself out of the intuitive signal, the gift that we all have that something was wrong? Eventually she got to her apartment door, and he said, I'll just put the stuff inside. And she said, I know it's okay. And he said, no, no, it's all right. I'll leave the door open. I'll put it inside, and then I'll go, I promise. Of course, he didn't keep his promise. And all these signals that occurred to her later, she saved herself after the rape. He went to the kitchen and he said to her, don't you move? And she said, you know I won't. When he got up and left her room, she followed him, took the sheet and she walked right down the hall right behind him, close enough, that if she'd breathed, he'd have felt it on the back of her neck. And he walked into the kitchen, and she walked out her front door into the apartment across the hall and saved herself. He later killed someone else. But it was the same signal that she had received. She listened to this time. Now she knew he is going to harm me if I don't act on it, and she got up. And the great thing she said to me was I was a passenger on my own legs. She said I had nothing to do with it. I just followed what intuition told me to do and we've all got the same thing. More of our conversation in just a moment. Do you remember having a thing you were passionate about as a kid? Maybe it was collecting stamps or knowing everything there was to know about dinosaurs or tearing up the sidewalk with your skateboard. Maybe it was a budding obsession with ceramics. You know, kids haven't changed. They still have got that thing. They're obsessed with. And nurturing that passion is what makes kids thrive. No one gets that more than today's sponsor, sitter city.

This podcast is sponsored by better help online therapy, and better help wants to tackle some of the stigmas around mental health. For example, many people think therapies for other people, but utilizing therapy doesn't mean something's wrong with you. It means you recognize that all humans have emotions and we need to learn to understand them, not avoid them. And we've been taught that mental health shouldn't be part of everyday life, but that's a misconception. Focusing on an investing in the health of our minds is just as important as taking care of our bodies. Lastly, some people think you should wait until things are unbearable to try therapy, but that isn't true. Therapy is a tool to utilize before things get bad. And it can help you avoid those lows. Better help is customized online therapy that offers video phone and even live chat with your therapist. So you don't have to see anyone on camera if you don't want to. It's much more affordable than in person therapy, and you can be matched with a therapist in under 48 hours. Give it a try and see why over 2 million people have used better help online therapy. And The Oprah Winfrey Show the podcast listeners get 10% off their first month at better help dot com slash Oprah. That's better HELP dot com slash Oprah. So this is a show about using that intuition to save your life. And one of the things I remembered from the gift of fear never forgot it is that you were saying that every we are like all other creatures, every other creature we're the only creature that will sense the danger and walk right into it. All other animals since the danger and they back out. The great example of that is, which will all recognize in an elevator in a hallway waiting for an elevator late at night, elevator door opens, and there's a guy inside, and he makes you afraid. You don't know why. You don't know what it is, some memory of this building, whatever it may be. And many women will stand there and look at that guy and say, oh, I don't want to think like that. I don't want to be the kind of person who lets the door close in his face. I don't want to hurt his feelings. I've got to be nice. I don't want him to think I'm not nice. And so human beings will get into a steel soundproof chamber with someone they're afraid of. And there's not another animal in nature that would even consider it. Well, listen to this. This is Nicole, and for weeks, she had one of those funny feelings, just a funny feeling. And the feeling was something odd.

Well, what did the LeBron James say? He scared to walk out of his house? Out of his mansion, yeah. That's exactly right. They're the eternal oppressed. The enormous influence power status and wealthy wield never negates their victimhood. Despite a nation three generations into affirmative action.

"It's never, ever too late. And sometimes dad felt, he told me, felt like such a jerk for what he did, that he could not even reduce it to a letter and felt it was so minuscule. But you just as a parent have to start. What about all the parents right now who divorced? And it's been, you know, ten years, 19 years, 20 years who want to begin the conversation. What should they do? Call their child get together with them and tell them I really, really want to hear what it was like to be you. I can take it. I love you and I care enough about you and us that I want to move forward. I can just hear it. I just want to listen. Give the children permission to tell you how they really feel. Your adult children. You're adult children. And you're a little children. You're a little children too. If you're going through it, yeah. How does this make you feel Victoria? Hearing him apologize, all these years later. It means a lot. And how did you feel hearing that from your promise? It means a great deal. It means the world to me. I feel like a big piece has been put back in my life. And I can move forward. So in closing, Gary, you want to say what, to all the families who may be in this process? Well, you know, make the call write a letter if you need to get in touch with each other. Have a friend help you if there's good that you know of some kind of person to help mediate. And I think at all times. A letter is a good start. If you don't feel like you can have the confrontation. That is good. Sometimes even having a letter and bringing it so that you can read it or bringing an aunt uncle friend somebody who can be there to help facilitate make sure everybody's listening to each other can be very helpful. How important is it to resolve this? Bring this to some resolution. If you're an adult child, whose parents divorce. It's crucial because childhood counts. And when things happen to us, it's still causes us to behave in what we call unconscious ways. Because you carry it into your marriage. And to your families, if you don't heal the wounds. Thank you.

"Open Jeffrey candidate was talking about earlier that literally the future of our country is at stake. This is 28 year old latifah piles. He's a barber in Atlanta. And he found a simple way to mentor the children who live around his barbershop. What do you do? We just get out and play basketball I bought some goals for the neighborhood and the kids come out. They come to the shop every day about ten to 15 of them to just play ball all day and they have an opportunity. It's an open door policy in my barbershop. They come in, talk to me about whatever issues they have. And I just try to be somebody to listen to them and give them positive advice. That's what I mean. That's why I'm here to do. I love a barber who then cut his hair. I know anything. What he did was he built a little basketball court. He might as well shop is so tiny. But he put a little hoop back there so that the young boys wouldn't be, what were they using? They were using a wire in the street. They used it. Yeah. Did they use an extension cord to put up the goals? So I just decided to get some real basketball goes out there, phone. So what do you want to say? What I want to say is I want to say thank you to doctor Sandra Baxter, also the Department of Education, the National Institute of literacy that's made available this wonderful brochure that helps people to get connected and understand what mentoring is all about, but there are so many myths. You know, it's going to take a lot of time, what will I do with children? I don't know. You know what, just be yourself. Yeah, that's what we're saying. That's exactly right. Yeah. What I want to say Oprah is that it's doable. And that's what I think we don't know. We don't read it in the daily newspaper. We don't see it on the nightly news. For every problem there is a solution and where the answer. So our children, the children are not doing well. Children have any race in this country. They're not doing well. And it's our responsibility as elders. To first nurture ourselves. Take care of ourselves so that we bring our best selves to parenting and to mentoring. And just from the bottom of my heart and my essence family's heart, please get involved. Let us save ourselves. The government can't do it. We have to do it. As you said, as people have been saying, not on our watch, we can do better than this wonderful. It doesn't take a Harvard degree or millions of dollars to make a difference in a child's life. As you've seen here today, living examples. It just really takes a commitment and a will to do better. Save a child today. Okay. Marvelous.

"Do you have favorites of your own? Favorites? Yeah. I have 6 favorite films out of 56. Okay, what are they? Is that one of them? That's one of them. Okay. I won't tell you the other four, because the more I narrow it down, then there will be so many films that will be left out and so many people I've worked with and I don't want to make that kind of thing. You are entitled to have your favorite sex. It's got to be they call me mister dead. That's one. That's also what. Okay. Let's talk about the slap scene in there. The slapping scene in there. It originally, it was not written so that you slapped him back. Is that correct? Correct, yeah. And you said, I said that I wouldn't play it that way. Because. Because. The guys who wrote the script, well intended, though they were. They were extending an old stereotypical pattern. Two extremes. I mean, that was the epitome of turning the other cheek. The situation. And I thought this was a modern man. This was a lieutenant of detectives in the homicide division of the Philadelphia police department. And this guy, without reason, slaps him across the face. And I said to the director and the producer, if you want to make really good cinema, if you want to have a scene that will be remembered, and if you want me in the picture. Then you will rewrite it so that within a nanosecond, as soon as he slaps me, he gets slapped right back. So I would think that would have made you even angrier when you get charges that you're not standing up. You're not black enough because you have in your own way behind the scenes and on the screen been standing up for that what you believe to be true and right. Yeah, but you know history passes the final judgment. And in my case, the body of work stands for itself. I have not made a film that I was ashamed of. I have made a film that my mother could see and feel very good. I have made 56 motion pictures. I've been a principal player in motion pictures for 50 odd years. And I think that my work has been representative of me as a man. And I think as a man I've been representative of the values I hold dear. And the values I hold here are carryovers from the lives of my parents. So I'm okay. With myself with history, my work who I am and who I was. How do you look so good? What are you doing? I mean, we have a special herbs and spices or how do you look so good? Well, thank you. I mean, I'm not aware that I look that good. You look good. When Sydney Poirier remembers his spirit, his mind wanders back to The Bahamas where he grew up. The values he learned from his parents have kept him connected to the powerful inner spirit that continues to guide him. During my earliest years, I was constantly exposed to nature. There were, for instance, not automobiles, no motorized vehicles at all. Boats are trucks or cars. So the sounds that came to me when I was a boy. Were the sounds of the environment where the sounds of insects singing and the sounds of water against the shore. But then when I went to places where there were cars and traffic and people, I began to realize the difference. I could walk on a beach for hours and hours by myself. I used to do that, but and I would listen to the sounds of all of which were natural sounds. There was a purity, there was a closeness to nature. I know that it was a most powerful influence on the rest of my life. I honor my spirit when I think of the core values of my parents. My father didn't define his core self by material things. He didn't loved us, and he cared for us, and he talked to us and he nurtured us. My mother's spirit is always around me. Always there. Guiding me of loose. I can sense it. I first felt that sense of connection with my parents on cat island. And I never lost that. My spirit is honored. When I think of my connectedness to the universe, I feel I'm a part of everything.

"For me, part of being elders are more patient. And with that comes wisdom, definitely. When I was younger, I just sped through everything. Had a good time. Some of the time, but I feel like it's been through it. I would say, the more I go up in years, the more I appreciate, being conscious of every moment, savoring things. I wish I had known when to shut up. You don't always have to blow back when you feel under attack. You don't have to write the angry letter or make the angry phone call. I have learned that I really need time alone. And I always thought that was a character flaw. I had to kind of change, but now I have learned, no, that's part of who I am. I don't need Gayle singing on the cross country trip. Oh crap. You're paying. That experience may be a few years. Thank you, Diane. So please, I just compliment you because I don't know a man in the world in your position. That would do this show with this topic. And I think it's wonderful. Thank you. You want to tell women the truth about it? And what is the good news do you think about getting older, aging? The good news. I had sort of crippling self esteem problems when I was younger. That's all amazing to me. I remember interviewing you for the magazine, and you were saying that, how do you get to be an actress if you're so well, you know, if you can get maybe millions of people to say they approve of you, maybe you'll then feel better at it. Yeah. But it doesn't work. I was modeling after I was out of college and I was doing Victoria secret catalog and cosmopolitan magazine, all this, you know, thongs and everything. Yeah. But in real life, I was wearing those panties that come like all the way up to your grandma panties? Yeah. Graham granny panties. And I mean G strings and Cosmo and so you could do it. I really was. So you'd gain confidence. Yes, yes. Absolutely. Absolutely. And for you, the good news is. I have the patience. I agree with Alfred. The good news? I know you feel bad about your neck. I do. And I feel good. I don't have to shave my legs as much. You know? That's good. But the good news is I'm here, and I love every thing. It was raining the other day. It's raining. You know? And I just really feel that I have learned partly from going through difficult things with friends. You know, to not save the bath oil because what are you saving it for? Yes. You know? Give yourself a really fabulous Beth and use up that pathway. Every day. You know? Because every day. But I don't you think really, I have found for myself that the best secret to aging is about your attitude. Absolutely. I think it's how you feel about yourself at any given moment. And if you are in love with yourself, if you feel that what you have to offer to use yourself, your family in the world, I think it's attitude. Do you agree? No. I will always remember my mother saying to me, Diane, you do know, when I became 50, she said, I did not look like you at 50. And you're 50 is wonderful. I don't know what you're doing, but she almost said honor it. And continue to do that. It's really great to hear from your mother. Yes. Yes. Thank you for I feel bad about my neck.

"Feel like I'm dead on the inside because there's not much to me. Basically just admitted to us that she feels like trash and you say, I say that you are really exhibiting what somehow very early in your life was told to you. And so I want to know because that feeling of trash being unworthy doesn't start in adulthood. So where did it start? It absolutely started in my childhood. I'd never denied that. The fact that I found this wonderful man who takes such wonderful care of me and my children. I mean, stop for a second because now we're into he's wonderful. And he may be, but I've never felt worthy of having him in my life. Okay, but so tell me about that. Meaning, where did you learn that you weren't worthy? I guess that's just the way I grew up. Honestly. So, but who? I mean, somebody sent you a message. We were used, okay. And there's no secret about that. I just wasn't sure that it was something I needed to come out with. But so now that you've come out with it, what's important, because that's not our business. The details, what is important is do you know how that shaped you? Absolutely. Okay, so then does that mean that you understand that when you talk about how good your husband is? But that you are a piece of trash. This is what I noticed what you were saying. You said, I would love for my husband to be proud of me. I would love my husband to have me on his arms, and I love him. I would love my husband to feel passion with me. I would love everything that you were saying about your husband is what you need to feel for yourself. Absolutely. Is that true? Yes. And what was robbed from you as a child? That was stolen from you. And so the focus is always about pleasing someone else. Yeah, I think this is important to say I would like for everybody to know this. Everything all because you keep asking everybody, where did this happen before? It wasn't the 13 years ago. Everything starts in your childhood. Yes. And I know that there are people who don't want to say that or admit that because they're like, oh, now we gotta go blame in our mothers. Right. It's not that. No. And mothers are like, don't go blaming me, right? What? And my mother's saying, the same thing right now. Don't go blame it, but. Yeah. The truth of the matter is you are shaped in your childhood, your beliefs and your values and what you think of yourself. That doesn't change just because you get to be an adult. And what's so important about Oprah what you just said is that you're talking about the healing happens when we can rewrite the script. So you can see that that's how I got to feel this. Exactly. And I don't have to feel that way. Absolutely. Because it was rooted in somebody else's lie about me or somebody else's misery about themselves. Correct. Okay. Next, doctor Robin is going to tell us how all the guests are connected. What do they have in common? Not good enough, self hatred, people here, the word self hatred and they think, oh, that's not me. But it is you, which means that any time you keep yourself from goodness, coming into your life in any form, whether it's losing weight, eating enough or receiving gifts. Every time we allow the old script to live again as if it is our own instead of saying that was the old script, that's what someone else said about me. Now I'm going to write my own script. So maybe I was adopted. And I don't understand why somebody would give me up. But guess what? I'm going to write a new script because I have a husband who loves me, kids who deserve to be nurtured. Maybe two marriages didn't work. And I'm with somebody right now who's calling me names. But I'm going to stop drinking, driving while I'm drinking. I'm also going to stop the verbal abuse. Why? Because I'm worthy. And in this instance, I will begin to allow my husband to nurture me to gift me, not just with financial because it's about the lies you were told about yourself. I think that you believed. That's all it is. It's about the lies you were told, and you believed about yourself. And this is true for all of us. Just got to change the belief. Exactly. As kids, we believe what is told. You're beautiful, you're smart, you're dumb, you're ugly. Whatever it is you were told, we all took it in. And it's now to say I'm going to break that lie, and I'm going to create that which is true about me. That which God says about me, and that which the surrounding, healthy community, husbands who love us, not people who call us fat. This is huge. It's huge. Huge. You know, all those years I was eating and out of control, and you were saying, you know what? Two 37 is. And I remember that moment where I was at the fight and the heavyweight champion of the world Mike Tyson, I weigh more than he did. But all those years, I was lying to myself. I thought I just like potatoes. Yes. You know? Yes. And it took me, you know, doing shows because I never had therapy. I could have gotten to it sooner if I had therapy. To realize that it wasn't about the food. That's right. It was about my feeling worthy. That's right. My feeling I was good enough to own everything. That's right. Not just physically own it, but to emotionally and spiritually own it. And so for everybody, I don't know if there's been abused in your background or whatever. And if you've been abused, you have to come to terms with the sense of worthiness. Yes. A sense of worthiness that I am worthy to accept the gifts that I have been given. Absolutely. And that is the work. That is the real work of your life. You know what, as I was watching her earlier with bent in their son, you can't even imagine the damage that you're doing. The script will not be written for ten or 12 years from now when you get to see actually what happened because of your behavior. It's just toner. I'm just beside myself. Let's just tore me up. Well, you need to be beside enough to do something. And beside yourself and get in these steps get in yourself. Yeah. Okay, we're out of time.

"Got SPF 500 on your skin. That's right. Yes, baby. It keeps the wrinkles away. Keep the wrinkles away. Yeah. But it also comes from our sun's rays. Right. Okay. Moving on to the skin. What are the three letters everybody should know? They're alpha hydroxy acid, AHA. So glycolic alpha hydroxy acid doesn't cost very much, but it fools your skin into thinking it needs to rejuvenate itself. And so it produces new skin, which makes you look younger. It does? So that's the great. Now there's one other trick. It really does. It really does. There are three other letters. Factors nor of aspirin as ASA, I see the salicylic acid. So if you don't get AHA or even if you do, you should take that two aspirin to baby aspirin a day because they stop inflammation in your skin, which means you look younger. Inflammation is the largest cause of our wrinkling of the skin. So aspirin and AHA. An HA is in the products that we buy. Right. And it will say that, right? It says alpha hydroxy acid, right? Yeah, I didn't know if that was really true or not. So is all that other skin stuff a myth? Well, it does smell nice. Yeah. And it does represent a transfer of money from your wallet to theirs. Yeah.

"Through 25 seasons. Hey. 4561 episodes. I believe The Oprah Winfrey Show was one of the greatest classrooms in the world. A world never thought of it that way. The aha moments, the breakthroughs, the LOLs, the connections, the occasional, ugly cry. I miss him so terribly, I miss it every single minute. The moments that mattered. The eye opening, life lessons. Never allow them to take you somewhere else. I'm bringing them back. It's time to open the vault. I personally chosen these classic episodes to share with you again. Every single person you ever will meet, shares that common desire. They want to know. Do you see me? Do you hear me? That's what I say, mean anything to you. You are listening to The Oprah Winfrey Show. The podcast. So are you thinking that you can afford that new SUV because of 0% financing? Maybe you believe that now is a time to buy a new house because interest rates are at an all time low. Well, you all know Suzy orman, she's the author of three bestselling books, including the road to wealth. She is here to crunch the numbers and help you figure out exactly what you can really afford. Suzie says, most people are living in denial about what they can really afford. And now is not the time to be in denial. Now if there was ever a time it is not now when the economy is not supporting your denial. Right. They're trying to get people in denial about it because it's easier to it's easier. People really feel that they are entitled. And they want they work so hard, don't you, you work so hard. And you just want a little thing here and a little thing there. And the problem is those little things add up to a lot of debt. And then you don't want those things anymore. And then you get depressed and then you go out and how do you solve that depression? By buying more things. So it's really a normal phenomenon that we have to put a stop, too. Okay. A lot of lifelong financial struggles begin with the wedding. This is Jennifer and her fiance Jason. And they are planning a wedding next fall, and they have different ideas about what they can really afford. I have just mountains of debts right now. Credit cards. I owe on a motorcycle I have. I owe on the ring for Jennifer. I'm anticipating spending about three thousand on a dress. $3000, I think it's a good deal. I don't know. I have car payments. I still have my school debt, my tuition, I'm still paying back. The invitations that I saw and that I really loved looking for about $800 for 50. We were planning on inviting about 200 people. That was awesome a little bit. It's 16,000. I usually don't think I have that much. That's not even counting what she's got somewhere around 25,000 with all her bills. The caterer will probably be about a $125 a person. The honeymoon will probably cost about $5000 for Hawaii. I really wanna give Jennifer the wedding of her dreams, but I don't wanna end up in debt. I absolutely don't mind going in a debt for this wedding because I know in a few years Jason, my will probably be able to pay it off. I do not want to put anything on credit card. I will pay for my wedding with credit cards. I will do anything to have the wedding in my dreams. I know my budget is different than what Jennifer's budget is. I tell her 20, but I'm trying to get things more around 15. Our budget as far as I'm concerned is 25,000, but I don't have a problem going over. I'm definitely nervous when you combine both of our debts together. It makes me a lot more nervous about this wedding. And what we're gonna have to come up with to afford it. More of this conversation in just a moment. Start your day in a positive way with the Lisa show. A high energy engaging morning show.

So we tagged along with Jennifer and Jason last Saturday as they took a closer look at what their dream wedding would cost. I'm a bride. Yay. It looks beautiful. I do. If the stress was, you know, 5000. Definitely, I wouldn't care about the price that was 1500. Okay. The veil was one 80. And tiara is two 85. See where we are. It was 19. Oh my God. That's it? That's it. Well, alteration. It's gonna be probably about two 50. So 22 15? Yeah, 22 15. Right. That's good. And then tax, of course. 24 O 8. 24 O 8, not bad. It's under your budget. Yeah, under my bushy, Jason's now, I'm not sure. Oh, I like the dome. Do you like the dome on? That's nice too. I'm getting so excited. Now I know that there was a payment plan for the engagement. Do you have any kind of payment plans for the wedding for winning bands? We certainly do. We have a number of different options. We ask for a 25% deposit. And then when the ring comes in, put it on one of the finance programs. Okay. This album is called the Tiffany. I like that. Jason, bottom line is $2995. Not including tax. That's good. I have no idea how we afford them. But hunt, I mean, these are pictures they're gonna last forever. Something's gonna give that, I don't think we can afford it. The look how nice is this here, so I definitely want those. Well then you're gonna have to cut up something else. We can't afford this drink. I feel like the juhan? I love the view. Now, I'm sure you're wondering about dollars and cents. Yes. Brazilian. Which would be the ideal spot for 200 people. In $6000 on a Saturday night, not including anything, but the space. Is that correct? For the space. What are your price ranges? We are a custom cater. I can begin at a $105 and includes an open bar as well as three courses down meal, including wedding cake and pastor dirt. I think that's a good price. Option 5. Then you still have to think of how many people we want to have here though. Right. There's a 150 to 200 people coming. You think you can afford it? I know she likes the place, but I really worried it's gonna be out of our budget. I'm feeling very overwhelmed. I don't think there's any way we could pay cash for this wedding. You'd be putting bills on credit cards. We don't have very much saved up for something like this. I was thinking we could possibly save the money as we go. And when the event comes, we pay for the majority of it. But now I'm starting to see that they want to be paid well in advance of.

"Julie. So Pam O'Malley and Gail were just casual friends and neighbors until Pam was diagnosed with breast cancer. That's when Gail became her angel. After I was diagnosed with the breast cancer, one of the hardest things I had to do in my life was to tell my children. My biggest concerns is that I wouldn't be around to see my kids grow up. You never think that anything would actually happen to your mom. You know, you always think it's somebody else. I had my choice between a lumpectomy and a mastectomy. I opted for the mastectomy. You know that you'll never be the same. After the surgery, when I realized that things weren't going well, and they told me I would have to change these dressings three times a day. I just couldn't do it. And my family couldn't do it. They emotionally couldn't do it. They physically couldn't do it. I didn't want them to see me like that and just kind of emotionally collapsed at that point. And that's when I contacted my friend Gale. Before p.m. second surgery, she had asked me if I would help her with changing the dressings. She just couldn't look at herself because that was just a reminder of her cancer. I couldn't believe how you can be mutilated. All the different marks on your body and cuts and bruises it was just so ugly. Nobody in the family could handle it. So somebody had to step in and I was happy to do it. For weeks and weeks. She came to my house three times a day. I always thought I was the only one in her life. She's walking, she'd be very calm, never felt rushed. You know, she always seemed like she was so happy to be here. She came in and did what she needed to do, she would do it and we would talk and we always had something to say and she wasn't there to take care of this cancer patient and do these things for the cancer. She was there for me. I was like a second mother. Cooking a dinner making sure everyone was done. Helping her mom get through chemo. Showers made sure we were okay. In the past, you know, you hear stories about angels, you know, what is an angel? As I was going through this, I would just look around and think kale is an angel. She never made me feel that I was taken from her. That this was just something she wanted to do. She's my guardian angel. Just always right there. I was honored that she asked me to help with her care. What I did for Pam is what I would do for my sister. I'll never. Be able to pay her back. She was my everything. How do you pay somebody back for that? Thank you, Pam and Gail. Thank you all so much. Thanks everybody. I'm Oprah Winfrey and you've been listening to The Oprah Winfrey Show, the podcast.

"Better than having it's hard it gets. It gets tough at times. Feel worried that. I'm we'll have enough time out of the day to just look into my husband's is and tell him i love and it's no no for me for my husband laurel says melissa has paper-thin boundaries as do all people pleasers. Yes yeah people pleased have buried thin boundaries. Because there's no acceptance inside. There's no strong nurturing voice inside and usually there's emotional trash from the past of early rejection paper-thin boundaries may meaning. Anybody can awesome at any time. Anybody i know how you feel and what you need. But do i know how i feel and what i need. No what i need in order for me to feel good. You have to like me. You have to love me. Because i don't have that nurturing loving voice inside myself i'm dependent upon it. I'm depended upon your acceptance. Because i haven't gone downside to interface that i am alone and that leads to a false comfort. Aren't people pleasers underneath really angry. Hello underneath all of them. Pleasing and pleasing aren't if you were to scrape the surface great. Go down go down. Go down there. There's a lot of anger there for. There's a lot of anger and there's a lot of despair because they feel so deeply unloved. The early history for most people who are people pleasers was of parental rejection. And so the whole key is to take out that emotional trash. We'll see in a minute and feel our feelings and and will listen a person who is highly thinking oriented which has a problem to it. Those of us who tend to be not feeling oriented like pam was the thinking oriented. Do great in the world we go out and we analyze and we make things happen. We take action however we don't feel so you cannot have a connection without a feeling so we're cut off from ourselves our relationship but they're not connecting and the spiritual and so we end up doing one excess. After another so one of the things that i want you to do. My dear is to disrupt. The obsessive repetitive thoughts. All that list making you're not worrying you're obsessing because over control an obsessive thinking god is a way of getting the illusion of control. The real control you have inside is the practice moment to moment throughout the day of going inside and finding your field says it again the over control on the list listening. May she's worried she's not worried. She's obsessing. Her thoughts are racing. That you're creating that you do have some control. Not only so another words the more you think you think if i can just figure it out if i can just analyze it enough then i can control it. And it's just a complete illusion and yet is it takes a lot of time. It's socially acceptable to analyze everything. But it doesn't give your heart your soul. What you truly need. What do you think about what she's saying. She that's correct. Uh-huh i should absolutely correct if i do something i have to see it. Through to the end there is no everything has to have a beginning middle and end and end. Can't come in the middle and the beginning in the end you just if it happens like that then that's it. I don't want to forget it. You're like this a very famous person might've been emmerson. I don't know who said some people are so busy leading the lives they planned and so you can't leave the life that was meant that be that would be me. I love the most of us have Who don't have enough of these skills had parents who were either too easy on us or too hard on us. Who didn't have any real expectations of us didn't expect much or had rigid harsh expectations. And you had harsh expectations on you and so the harsh expectations went from your dad.

"So we come back from multiple callbacks, 'cause we were like, there's no way. Things don't work out like this for us. But it just did. And so casting was really, really fun. And everyone ended up just being local to Wellington. Because like you guys are saying there's so much talent outside of Atlanta. And LA and New York. There's so much talent in those places for sure. But the best roles at least for our film were right here. So. Yeah, exactly. And sometimes that works even better because again, like you're saying you got to have sort of a family on set because if you don't have that relationship that you're having fun, you know, because I think it should be about having fun being professional, but if you're not having fun, I mean, then it's not, you know, the production value is not there either. Long amounts of hours with each other. And very hot conditions. So we'll talk about weather, right? So when we were following it, I thought you would talk about hot conditions. There's always something that happens on the set. There's always a setback there's always something, so maybe you can, you know, most people talk about, you know, oh yeah, we had this, we had that, but you girls had something bigger, maybe you can tell us about that. Yes, because what's so funny, I'll tell you is that we had all the typical things like our grip truck got stuck in the sand, our ice cream truck broke down. And we rarely ever talk about those challenges because they are all, you know, I guess overshadowed by the fact that this film is about no rain and on day 12 of production we had to stop everything because a hurricane for hurricane that category four hurricane. It was headed towards Wilmington. And not moving. And he was coming right towards our city. So we had to stop on day 12 with an 18 day shoot and everyone evacuated to places like Charlotte or Atlanta. And we were stuck outside of our town for two weeks. I didn't know what we were going to come to when we came back. Because when Lincoln essentially became an island, it flooded everywhere. We weren't sure if our locations were going to be okay. And not even just for our films, but because those people who came our family do, and we didn't want their businesses to damage. There was a lot and I was also going out of the country during that time. So amazing Hannah, somehow put the Tetris of our crew to schedule back together and everyone was able to come back two months later to film. But then it was 44°. Okay. So one question about that, I mean, so when you have something like that, I said back. It's very hard on your motivation. It's very hard because now you're like, what am I going to do? And it takes a toll, especially if you're an artist, you're trying to create something that's meaningful, and now you have a big setback. How do you bounce back from that emotionally? You know, just say, you know, I just keep doing it. Keep doing it. Besides that you have the responsibility of finishing, but just more in the sense of like a personal, you know, no. The question. Hold on, but you think that's okay. Like, how did we do that? I think part of it is just we have invested so much already. And I think we could say just ourselves invested, but then when we look at our crew and our cast and all the people that contributed to this crowdfunding campaign and shared our film like when we are doing our campaign, it's like it didn't feel like it was our movie and felt like it was our communities movie. And so it had to, we had to finish it. We had to keep on going, even though we were tired, because not only us but so many people aboard their heart and soul into making this happen. And it just, it just wasn't really an option to be like, well, you know, we tried our best. And we had a lot, I mean, a hurricane was big, but we also hit some equally challenging things during that production after production before production. Just a lot of lifestyle, hard stuff in between. And so it's kind of like, I don't know. We just kind of had, I think also 'cause we're a partnership. So when one person is tired, the other person can lift them up and vice versa. Megan, what do you think? Yeah, the thing I was thinking of is a lot of times those setbacks I think we used as motivation to be like, this will not stop us. And it almost made us get more fire. Every once in a while it gets to you. And I think that that's when it's okay to call up your friend or like I got to just call it Hannah. And sometimes we're like, I can't do it today. Like today I take a break from the movie. Because maybe these are a can be at least a nonstop thing you're working on. You can really get burnt out on it. And the thing we didn't want to do is get so tired that we made a wrong decision. Out of just because we felt fired. So the process of making the movie took longer than I think some do, but a lot of that is in part because we allowed ourselves to take a breath if we needed it. Yeah, that's extremely important. I mean, you pretty much said it like you have to step back and do something fun, relax and then come back to it, right? I mean, that was guilty. I feel guilty. Exactly. Well, I mean, I was going to ask you about what your advice for filmmakers was, but I can not set out, but let me make sure that's where it doesn't have another question. And then I'll ask my final question that you girls go with just show the trader one more time do a little plug for Amazon Prime because I know that it's on Amazon Prime and then go from there. I'll check well also if we have any questions on our site. It was exploring your social media. And I was interested because you put it on your Facebook our hopes, raise autism awareness, brand jobs to our community, provide opportunities for women to live if you want it to elaborate on those. Yeah. I think it was really cool. We were able to pay our crew and we were really proud of that. It wasn't a huge amount. But we were also able to give them an interest in the film. So once the film makes money, our hope is that it does because we don't have investors. It is our crew and our cast and we can give that money back to them. In 2018 when we filmed our town was in a really big world for any filmmaking happening in the area. And it kept everyone energized. I think it kept. It gave people opportunities for roles they hadn't begun before. And now they've moved on to studio productions in our doing those roles. So I think got that goal and yes, number one is to raise autism awareness and acceptance in this film to get people talking about it. And to just promote the message that there is no such thing as normal. And we are here to accept each other but also ourselves. And then finally, from when it in film, you know, one of the reasons we set out to even write female characters is because we are actors first. And we auditioned for a lot of roles that were very grateful to audition for their typically very small and they could be like dumb blond or quirky white dress and we're like, ah, women are so much more than that. And so our hope is that people can see two female characters interacting that just have a family relationship and the complexities that come behind that. So those are our hopes. Thanks for reading those. I clearly asked about them. That's awesome with those goals that you have for this film. I was just amazing. Yeah, and I think that's important. That's very important to have goals. I mean, other than that, I think you have given great advice throughout the whole talk right now, which is really what we want to do. And I think you couldn't have said it better that, you know, you're doing this for yourself. Obviously, but also people get opportunities because they do a project. You know, like not a lot of times, you know, people are just doing something in the last 6 because something there's always someone watching, right? I always say that. There's always someone looking at your staff and then seeing what's out there and it's great that you're actors or maybe someone got a production somewhere out of that. And I think that's the most rewarding experience that you can get as a filmmaker to really see somebody in your film, making it as well. So we're going to do a little plug. How do we find your film? So I'll put it on the comments after the link, but yeah, so you can find drought on Amazon Prime. This week actually we're running a special where you can rent for 4.99 and purchase for 9.99. But then at the end of this week, you'll go back up to its normal price. You should just buy it then, right? You know? Yeah. And if you like it, it would mean so much if you guys rated it and murdered you. I'm an honest review. You know, that's really important to us. So yeah, it was on prem. Okay. All right. So this is I promise this is the last question, okay? So this is just if you were to tell yourself before you even started this project. One thing that you would have done differently, maybe just or you would have told yourself before you got this project going like that, maybe yeah, we could have gotten different at different ways. You know, like, oh, sorry, Meg's. You know, you go first. I was thinking you have sex. Okay. I feel like everything was supposed to happen the way it was. So I wouldn't change anything because had learned so much. The learning curve on this project was huge because every single role that Megan and I stepped into was new. But I will say if I could go back and tell myself something that I'll continue to tell myself for the next projects that we do, I really struggled on set and only Megan really knows this. As a director, because I felt like I was completely under qualified, which I was and still am. But I felt like I needed to know everything. Especially technical stuff, which I was not familiar with at all. And so I really got in my head when I was in director mode that I just was so inadequate and it made it was just really unhealthy. Unhealthy thoughts, you know, of like, I'm not good enough or like, no one's gonna listen to me, all that stuff. It's such a waste of time. And so what, maybe I don't know all the answers, but that's why you have a team. So I think I would go back and tell myself just chill. Just trust your gut. You know that other people are working just as hard, you don't have to know the answers, and that's why you have all these great people with you. So yeah, I think that's maybe something that I go back and tell myself. Intel others, you don't have to know everything, just take it one step at a time. That's perfect. Yeah. You know, it's going to sound cheesy. It's mine. It's about the same. I would think in my modes though if I don't know something, I try to learn everything I can about it. And sometimes you just don't have the capacity. I don't need to know everything that the gaffer is doing. As I do more or sound or the first AC or DIT, you know, I wanted to know everyone was doing. I think that comes from a good place. And I think what Hannah's talking about comes from a place of wanting to be a good team, team member. But being a good team member is sometimes releasing responsibility and letting people do what they're there to do. And as we do more projects or as you can do more projects out there, you'll learn more and more each time. And you'll feel, I think more like you have more knowledge of everything going on. It's okay if you don't. That's perfect. I think that's perfect by this way. I mean, pretty much what we've been saying and we're gonna keep saying it and we're gonna try to do this little segment as much as we can find filmmakers that are doing great things in this area and outside this area because I think we're all connected anyway. So maybe one, maybe one day we'll get to work in a project together, and definitely. Ladies, we wish are the best and the best of luck on your future and it looks like it's gonna be a pretty good one. I mean, you have a great movie that I think is going to inspire not only filmmakers, but just anyone looking to just be creative.

"winfrey" Discussed on The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Podcast

"One out of four women and one out of seven men in this country. The united states of america have been sexually abused. We have talked about it a lot on this show. It is in the news a lot every week. We get hundreds of letters from women who have lived with this secret for years because the nightmare of sexual abuse continues long after the molesting stops. If you've been abused yourself you may be surprised how it has affected you or you may be one of those women like myself who never even looked at your life to realize how what happened to you as a child has affected you. See if you recognize yourself any of these characteristics of women who have been abused sexually as children. do you have an aversion to sex. Were you sexually promiscuous as a child. Were you more sexually inquisitive as a child and your friends. are you leaning toward homosexuality or bisexuality. Drugs alcohol had. They played a role major role in your life. Are you a perfectionist. You have an inability to function. And you can't seem to get organized. You sometimes have flashbacks of the incident. And can't get it out of your mind and relive it over and over. Did you relive it as a child many times do you have an inability to have relationships. Have you been married many times. Multiple marriages spider woman type. You snare opposite sex only for sex. Are you over protecting your children. All of my audience members today have been sexually abused and some of the stories that you are here of are of a very sensitive nature so you might want to find something else for the children to do or you may if you are an open minded enlightened parents prefer for your children to see the show. I want to read you a letter that we received here on the oprah winfrey show. It is from one of the guests here today. Jamie she says. I've held the secret of incest and it's force within myself for over thirty years and i'm now ready to tell my story. It's a story of incest of sexual abuse. Physical abuse verbal abuse emotional trauma alcoholism. The sad truth is that just because the physical behavior stopped the damage remains. I've carried around my secrets for so long. Now that the secrets have become as big a problem as the actual abuse itself. and so. that's what this show is about. It is about what happens after the abuse jamie. Tell me what happened in your life. I was getting molested. I started getting abused by my brothers. When i was three and it stopped when i was around seven and they let their friends also abused me. I was sort of the like the doll in their life. And then i was getting molested by the man up the street. That was acted as grandfather until i was eleven. I was raped. When i was fifteen and i was pregnant at sixteen and i have two daughters now as a result. None of the rapes. I was married for about eight years. And i'm a recovering alcoholic. Can one of my daughters also recovered now. When you were being abused by the by your brothers did you know it was wrong. Or bad no they. They're my brothers. Were the only people in my family. That were nice to me. They weren't hitting me on one of nine children who's being beaten by both my mother and my father and my brothers they were always just nice to meet and they always were friendly with me and they never. I never thought they were me because they weren't hitting me kind of effect. Do you think it's had on your life those years from three to seven when you were being used by your brothers and to <hes>. Trying to form relationships. I don't have a real good track record with men at all. I've been married twice. And i seem to have a real difficult time in relationships with men in the last couple of years i've begun to form relationships with women because i didn't trust women either by relationships. You mean. Sexual relations friendships ships. I've been isolated. Most of my life and i've overprotected my children. I've i've kind of was the rebel though too. I've been loud and aggressive but so that no one would know what was really going. How do you see that the sexual abuse had any effect on all of these other things that have happened in your life or impact trying to just maintain and go about day to day life. It's for a long time before. I started talking about it. I would wake up in the morning and wonder why had woken up again. Why didn't just die during the night. Because i finally. When i went to therapy. I decided to have myself committed because every time i woke up. I didn't know what would happen during the day. I i held big joe. I had my kids. People thought i was superwoman. People thought i was friendly. One woman even said to me she thought. I never had had a sad day in my entire life. But that's because i was busy keeping the secret and the in. I couldn't let anyone know.
