Sheryl Underwood Is Overcome by Emotion After Seeing the Duggars' Interview

Originally posted 06/04/2015 06:10PM

The Talk co-host Sheryl Underwood dissolved in tears on Thursday's show after watching Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard identify themselves as two of the five girls their brother Josh allegedly molested more than a decade ago.

Underwood said during the show's taping that she too was a victim of molestation as a young girl: "I'm probably the only person at this table that went through that," she began. "I went through that [at] 3, 4, 5 years old – you know something is wrong."

She continued, "And if nobody listens to you and nobody is going to stop it ... whether I'm asleep or not – I didn't sleep. I learned how to stay up as long as I could. I may sleep at school because nobody is going to protect me, so I have to protect myself."
