When word of Uma and Ethan's split made it to the media an instant barrage of rumors and accusations started filling the headlines. "I'd read that there was some betrayal of some kind," Oprah asks. "Was there?"

"We were going through a really bad time," Uma says. "My son was 18 months old. I hadn't really worked very much between my children, which had given us a lot of stability. I had a child and went back into an incredibly demanding job. I think that put a huge amount of pressure on our marriage. … Anyway, it's hard to say. Blaming anybody doesn't make you feel better."
