Talking to Oprah a week later in her first interview after the incident, Sarah made no excuses and was apologetic as she watched the tape of the sting for the first time. "There aren't really very many words to describe an act of such gross stupidity," she said. "I think this is the key to the whole of my life now. It's like I'm stripped bare."
After living through this lowest of moments, Sarah knew it was time for a change. On the new OWN series Finding Sarah, cameras follow Sarah's quest to go from broken to broken open. Sarah says she agreed to let the world see her journey of self-discovery because she trusted Oprah. "I remember so clearly you saying to me, 'Sarah, I want you to know if you come with good intentions, your intentions will show. And I will know if you are not in good intentions,'" she says. "Now the brilliance about you is that for some reason you knew Sarah, and I didn't know her. And Andrew and the girls, same as you. And my friends know Sarah. I didn't know."
