Robin says the pain she's caused her family has been the most devastating part of all. Robin's mother and sister were invited to the show, but didn't want to come.

"I grew up with a single mother," Robin says. "My mom raised me. She worked so hard to give us the best education. … Just to try to make it good. Let us have all these opportunities. And I felt like, in one fell swoop, just by saying 'yes' [to marry Mike] that night, I had ruined everything that she had worked for. I think that's what made me feel such overwhelming sadness—that I had actually involved…people that loved me. It wasn't only me now. It was everybody that I had involved."
