The Woman with 92 Personalities
The Oprah Winfrey Show | June 11, 2010
Truddi Chase and Oprah Before she started hosting her nationally televised show, Oprah had a local talk show in Baltimore. One of her first guests on that Baltimore show was Truddi Chase, a woman who, after suffering sexual abuse by her stepfather that started when she was 2 years old, split into 92 distinct personalities.
“This is a story like no other that you will ever hear,” Oprah says. Truddi talks about the abuse and her recovery in her book When Rabbit Howls. Her life story was made into a made-for-television movie starring Shelly Long called The Voices Within: The Lives of Truddi Chase.
Interviewing a Person with Multiple Personalities
The Oprah Winfrey Show | October 06, 2010
Oprah Show producer Kirsten Williams traveled to London to interview Kim Noble, a woman with dissociative identity disorder—formerly called multiple identity disorder—and ended up speaking with eight personalities. Read her account of what this experience was like….How many of the 20 personalities did you meet?
Over four days, I met “Patricia,” “Judy,” “Bonny,” “Ken,” “Ria,” “Dawn,” “Salome” and “Missy.”
Was there a visible process Kim went through when a different personality was about to take over?
The change could be as subtle as a blink of an eye. Other times it was similar to when you are nodding off to sleep and you catch yourself to wake up. The transition back to “Patricia” was harder to detect. Sometimes I would be talking to one “alter,” and then Aimee or “Patricia” would start laughing because “Patricia” was back, and I didn’t know it. Pretty soon, I got the hang of it.
