PRIMETIME LIVE {WILL YOU REMEMBER ME?, SALLY JESSY RAFAEL, SINCE OUR STORY, CRAZY BOSSES} (TV)

Summary

One in this news magazine series co-anchored by Diane Sawyer and Sam Donaldson. This edition opens with the feature, "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" about the corruptive presence of the U.S. military in Subic Bay, Philippines, and the destruction left after the withdrawal of the military. This segment exposes the military's promotion of prostitution, which became a major industry in the in the Subic Bay area, and the estimated 9,000 illegitimate Amerasian children born of the union of "bar girls" and military men. With the military gone, so is the industry that supported the women and their families, leaving them destitute and their children alienated because of their dual heritage and the taboo it represents. Interviewed in this segment are several ex-prostitutes looking for the men who fathered their children, military men who have fathered Filipino children and shirked their responsibilities, Amerasian children themselves, the spokesperson for a Filipino coalition that supports the local women, and an American lawyer who is suing the U.S. government to provide health care for these Amerasian children.

The next segment, "Sally Jessy Rafael," explores the Emmy Award-winning talk-show host's difficult climb to fame and success. Rafael comments on the following topics, among others: the purpose her show serves for its guests and audience; and the hardships and tragedies in her life, including her struggles to break into the entertainment industry, a period of homelessness, a car accident which left her son with permanent brain damage, and the untimely death of her oldest daughter. Sally Jessy Rafael and her husband Karl Soderlund are interviewed. A brief segment entitled "Since Our Story" gives updates on guests from the previous shows, "Dr. Healy," "Who's Helping Hand," and "Tracey's Diary." Finally, "Crazy Bosses" defines the five types of bosses -- the narcissist, the wimp, the bully, the paranoid, and the disaster hunter -- and suggests how to deal with them according to Stanley Bing author of "Crazy Bosses -- Spotting Them, Serving Them, Surviving Them." He uses the examples of Ross Perot, Donald Trump, Leona Helmsley, and Presidents Ronald Reagan and Richard M. Nixon. The episode ends with a preview of the May 20,1998, special report on breast cancer and mammograms. Includes commercials, promos, and PSAs. This program is closed-captioned.
