The segment focused on “Overcoming Guilt”, and Amy was chosen to share her two-year struggle with alcohol, her resulting crumbling marriage, and ultimately, her crippling guilt after a drunk driving accident that left her 5 year old daughter in critical condition. The segment aired on July 29, 2012 and segments can be viewed on line at Oprah.com
