Terry McMillan on Getting to Happy
In November 2005, their modern-day War of the Roses divorce continued to play out on The Oprah Show. "When I came on [the show], it was more to bring more attention to the kind of harm that living a double life can cause, because it caused me a great deal of harm," Terry says.

After the show, Terry slapped Jonathan with a $40 million lawsuit for emotional distress and ruining her reputation. Terry won a judgment for intentional infliction of emotional distress but withdrew the suit before the case went to trial. Jonathan was never ordered to pay.
Now, five years after their Oprah Show appearance, Terry and Jonathan are back to discuss the state of their relationship.
