Exclusive: The Amy Fisher Story

From September 27, 2004: Oprah interviews Amy Elizabeth Fisher known as "the Long Island Lolita". In 1992, at the age of 17, Amy shot and severely wounded Mary Jo Buttafuoco. At the time Amy was having an affair with Mary’s Jo’s husband, Joey Buttafuoco. Amy served seven years in prison. After staying out of the public eye she told her story in a book, Amy Fisher: If I Knew Then. Oprah feels there's a larger lesson in Amy's story: "The most important gift any parent can give their children, especially their daughters, is a sense of self-esteem. What happened to Amy doesn't happen to girls who have a sense of self-worth."
