Oprah reminds Maryann and Dimetria to follow the doctor's directions and leave their earrings in to avoid infection. "These are Oprah earrings," jokes Dimetria, "so I might not take them out ever!"
Chantel agreed and a car took her straight to the airport from the show. Addiction counselors Janice Styers and David Rosenker were assigned the challenging task of getting Chantel from our studio to a treatment facility on the other side of the country. Chantel changed her mind after only minutes on the road. "Turn the car around," she demanded. "I hate you guys! I hate this!"
But Chantel made it on the plane and reluctantly checked into the nationally renowned Caron Foundation, a drug treatment facility in Pennsylvania.
Chantel says at first she was angry with her mom and sister, but she now realizes they were just trying to help her. She's written a letter to her family:
"When the time is right and I feel recovered, I want to start our relationship over," Chantel reads. "… Thank you for not giving up on me. I won't let you down again."
Oprah: Do you not believe her?
Penni: I've heard it all before. I can't take the pain anymore.
Kourtnie (right), Chantel's sister, says she feels the same way. "She's told me many times she was going to change. So I kind of feel like I don't know if it's the truth right now."
And instead of seeing death in her future, Chantel now looks forward to going to college and becoming a drug and alcohol counselor.
Did Chantel stay clean? She returns for an emotional update.
"We were separating at that time, Trevor, when we were here with Oprah discussing our marriage," Trina says. But she believes his relationship with the other woman began before she and Trevor separated. "We were still working things out. It wasn't until I left the show that I decided at that time that this was not a healthy situation for me or for you. And so that's when I filed for divorce."
"I think that we are doing the best thing, and we have two wonderful kids," Trevor says. "So we're trying to be mature about this."
"Divorce is going to be the best thing for both Trevor and me," Trina says. "I think that he's a fantastic guy that just has some morality issues. I think I'm a great girl that has some weight issues. I think the two of us together are just sort of like vinegar and water."
Although she agreed to give up all the cats, at the last minute, Kathryn told the Humane Society that she needed to keep a dozen of them. "I think that [my daughter] will be able to have her friends over and we'll lead a more normal life. I'm so grateful that they can go on now and hopefully it will be a very happy ending for all of them. I helped them as much as I could for as long as I could."
Kathryn also told the Oregon Humane Society that the cats she kept were older, and she wanted to let them live out the rest of their lives at home. She also promised to not take in anymore homeless animals.
