Amy Van Dyken: Her hopes and dreams for the future

Greg Smith: The impact of overwhelming media attention on this "child prodigy"

Daytime TV legend Genie Francis opens up the coastal Maine home she shares with her husband of 28 years, actor Jonathan Frakes ("Star Trek: The Next Generation"), and shares her feelings about everything from her controversial departure from "General Hospital," to facing an empty nest as her children prepare to leave home, to her 2015 return to the hit show that made her a star when she was just 19. Then, in an interview filmed several months prior to the death of husband David Bowie, Somalian supermodel Iman recounts the trajectory of her successful modeling career and why she suddenly walked away from the runway. Now, at 60, Iman offers her observations on the fashion industry today, as well as what she did when she turned 50 that keeps her looking her best at any age. Next, the first woman to win four medals in one Olympic Games (she went on to win another two as well), Amy Van Dyken suffered a paralyzing accident in June of 2014. With her Olympic determination fully intact, Amy recalls the events surrounding her near-fatal accident, how she is pushing her limits today, and what's next for her in the world of competitive sports. Then, we meet the woman who millions of us know simply as Siri, THE VOICE of iPhone. She's voice actress Susan Bennett, and she unknowingly landed one of the biggest voice jobs in the world. Finally, back in 1999, The "Oprah" Show introduced the world to child prodigy Greg Smith, who advanced from second to eighth grade in just one school year, and entered college at the age of ten. Today, Oprah Winfrey sits down with Greg, now 26, to find out what ever became of the boy genius so many viewers have written to inquire about.
