Despite the violent abuse she says she has received from Billy, Mindy does not have plans to completely give up on their relationship. "I was with him for a year and a couple months before this all happened and it was the most tumultuous relationship of my entire life," she says. "But I really, truly loved him and each time that he would do something horrible to me, I would go to save him after the incident."

"Let me just stop you right there because you are so many women," Oprah interrupts. "You really, truly loved somebody that would leave you gurgling in your own blood? You really, truly do? I would have to question that."

Mindy then tells Oprah that she loves Billy more than she loves herself. "So you don't want to give up on him," Oprah says, "even though not giving up on him means, literally, that you're giving up on yourself?"
