Chris Brown's arrest for allegedly beating his girlfriend Rihanna has sparked a nationwide conversation on domestic violence. In fact, Oprah Winfrey was so moved by the story she dedicated a whole hour to the subject on her show yesterday.
Oprah has not been shy about offering her advice to singer Rihanna, and women who are in abusive situations. "If you have been abused once, she says, it will not be the last time." Oprah devoted a whole hour to the subject on her show yesterday. We wanted to talk about it with a clinical psychologist. Dr. Jeff Gardere joined us live.
The stories that will be making news later today:
