Oprah Winfrey interviewed Truddi Chase “The woman with 92 personalities” on her The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1990. Here, relive the incredible story once more.
One of the most unforgettable guests in “Oprah Show” history was Truddi Chase, a woman living with 92 distinct personalities.
Truddi’s condition—now called dissociative identity disorder, or DID—was caused by years of brutal sexual abuse by her stepfather that started when she was just 2 years old.
In 1990, Truddi shared her powerful story with Oprah, a sexual abuse survivor herself, who was moved to tears during the emotional interview.
Sadly, Truddi passed away in March 2010, but her legacy lives on.OWN YouTube Channel
