According to recent statistics, stalking is a crime experienced by a staggering 3.2 million people in the United States alone. Even if no physical crime is committed, stalkers leave an indelible mark on their victims.
Aspiring model Kourtney reveals how the internet brought her fame, fortune…and a deranged stalker intent on ruining her career and instilling fear in her heart. Her terrifying ordeal led her to help law enforcement ultimately put her stalker behind bars.
Also, a woman’s powerful story of survival when she chose to change her name, address and social security number in order to keep herself and her children safe from her deranged ex-husband.
And, Rhonda Saunders, the prosecutor who brought justice to Madonna, Steven Spielberg and Gwyneth Paltrow and author of Whisper of Fear: The True Story of the Prosecutor Who Stalks the Stalkers, joins the conversation to discuss how her participation helped change the stalking law in California to specifically include indirect threats and better support victims.
And, the warning signs and what you can do to protect yourself against stalkers.
Jenni was raised on southern food and claims she won’t eat salad unless it’s smothered with bacon and blue cheese, but she’s determined to walk down the aisle looking like a sexy bride. Crystal was too embarrassed to go to a family reunion because of her weight, but she’s now determined to get in shape. And, Lisa was teased for being a skinny redhead and never worried about what she ate until she hit her 40’s and things began to change.

Once completed, the three women will receive complimentary wedding gowns from David Tutera (WeTV’s “My Fair Weddings”), hair and make-up specialists, flowers, a wedding cake and a still photographer to help make their special day even more unique.
