Kellie and Kathie Henderson, sexual abuse victims and twins from Wichita, will talk with Oprah Winfrey about what happened to them on a show that airs in Wichita at 4 p.m. Tuesday on KWCH, Channel 12.
Winfrey's staff members shared some of their transcribed interview exchanges with The Wichita Eagle. The written excerpts indicate that the show will be tough to watch at times.
OPRAH: So your mother walked in and saw your brothers raping you.
OPRAH: And turned around and walked out.
OPRAH: What did you make of that?
KATHIE: There would be times when it did happen and as I'm walking upstairs, you know, you'll see her in the hallway and you just walk by and you roll your eyes.
OPRAH: So what would you say to her at that time? What would you say?
KATHIE: I know I never really talked about it to her. To anyone, really.
KELLIE: Because it felt like every time we did go talk to her, she didn't believe us.
Unlike most of Oprah's shows, which tell several stories in one hour, the whole hour on Tuesday will focus on the Hendersons' story. The show was taped Thursday in Chicago.
The Henderson twins first revealed their names publicly in December in the three-part Wichita Eagle series "Promise Not To Tell."
