Meredith Vieira Shares Her #WhyIStayed Story

Meredith Vieira: #WhyIStayed

Meredith Vieira released a segment from her talk show today in which she discusses #WhyIStayed and her own prior abusive relationship. She explained that in her situation, the abuse became gradually more frequent, transformed from threats into physical violence, and made her feel as if she was at fault for it. Most importantly, she dispels some of the myths and stereotypes about women who stay in abusive relationships:

“I’m a smart woman. A lot of people say, ‘Well, who would stay in that situation?’ Somebody who maybe doesn’t have the wherewithal to get out, the means to get out – I had that. I had a job at the time. And I kept in this relationship… I think part of it was fear – I was scared of him, and scared if I tried to leave something worse could happen to me. Part of it was guilt, because every time we’d have a fight, he would then start crying, and say ‘I promise I won’t do it again,’ and I’d feel like maybe I contributed, somehow, to this.”

The host went on to make suggestive comments as the Virginia Beach, Virginia pilot attempted to answer his questions. “I’m a old horny woman!” she declared. Uh, yup. Poor Max.

What’s The Most Backhanded Compliment You’ve Ever Received?

Meredith Viera’s list of crazy on-air antics must be at least as long and sordid as Kathie Lee Gifford’s, if not longer. (I’ll never forget the time she dissed a famous perfume expert and told him she didn’t “get” why anyone would buy a fine fragrance anyway, adding that she exclusively wears Jean (she pronounced it as “Gene”) Nate.) Anyhoo, this latest shenanigan is a low, even for her: During an interview in which consumer expert Janice Lieberman described deals people can get from police auction sites, Viera joked, “I can see all the NBC bean counters, all of my wardrobe is going to be from PropertyRoom.com, starting with [pointing to Lieberman] that ugly yellow dress.” ZING! After the audience gasped in horror, she “saved” the excruciating moment by screaming, “No, it looks cute on you. It looks cute on her!” Keep reading »
