Dr. Drew

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Former soap actress: I was sexually abused

  • Gloria Loring says she was sexually abused by her father
  • She writes new memoir detailing her challenges

Many people remember actress Gloria Loring as she played the beloved Liz Chandler Curtis on “Days of our Lives” for much of the 1980s.

She went on to become a singer and then  later wrote an autobiographical book, “Coincidence is God’s Way of Remaining Anonymous.”

She talked to HLN’s Dr. Drew Wednesday night about the memoir which explains how coincidence helped her make sense of her many challenges in life, including something she had never spoken about on television before – sexual abuse

”I remember when I heard about all of those young men with [Jerry] Sandusky and it just hurt my heart so much because I just thought, ‘You know, I know how it is to go through your life and never feel safe in your own body that,’” Loring said.
