Season 5 Episode 522
CC | tv-14
Comedian Ali Wentworth may be best known for her impressions on In Living Color and playing Jerry Seinfeld's girlfriend on the famous "Soup Nazi" episode of Seinfeld. Oprah fans likely remember Ali's bold reporting on The Oprah Winfrey Show, when she jumped out of a plane, danced with the Dallas Cowboys' cheerleaders and got naked on a beach.

Looking back on those days, Ali tells Oprah: Where Are They Now?, actually made her a better wife and mother. "At that time in my life, I had two very little girls," she says. "You know, I'd be with them during the week, pulling my hair out, you know, taking applesauce off my face, doing laundry, and Thursday I would fly to Chicago, spend the night and do the Friday live show. It literally saved me."

Here, Ali explains how being an Oprah Show anchor one day a week brought her closer to her family.
