Anderson spoke with Hillary Adams and her mother Hallie, about a video Hillary recently posted to YouTube of her father, a Texas Judge, beating her at age 16. Her mother also took part in the beating. They discussed why Hillary posted the video, why she waited 7 years to do so and their family dynamic past and present.
Anderson also spoke with Professor George Holden, whose recent study on parents yelling at their children actually caught parents on audiotape, spanking their children in real time over petty misbehaviors. Then three mothers who admit to spanking their children, took the stage and "America's Supernanny" Deborah Tillman weighed in on the issue. There were audience questions throughout both segments.
And Eva Longoria stopped by to discuss the final season of “Desperate Housewives,” her love of Twitter and going back to school for a mater's degree. Eva squared off against an audience member in the Anderson “Desperate Housewives” challenge.
