Cheri says she never actually believed Harald was planning to murder her. "I just didn't want to accept it, that he would do that to me after all those years together," she says. "In addition to being my husband, my lover and the father of my children, I thought he was my best friend."
Cheri has a message to anyone who worries they may be in a similar situation. "I want people to know that they have to trust their gut," she says. "Try to find an objective party—a minister, a counselor, or someone that's not too close to the situation—so that you know that they have an objective opinion and can really help you."
"It's not that you're stupid," Oprah says. "You didn't listen to your 'wise self.' That's what your intuition is. It's your wise self."
