'All My Children' Alum Debbi Morgan Opens Up About Her Family's History of Abuse (Video)

"There were nine siblings -- four of the five sisters married abusive men," actress tells Oprah Winfrey on "Where Are They Now?"

Former "All My Children" star Debbi Morgan is set to appear on Saturday's episode of "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" on OWN, and in a new preview clip, the actress opens up about her family's history of domestic violence.

Morgan, who became the first African-American woman to win a Daytime Emmy Award in 1989 for her role as Angie on the ABC soap, tells host Oprah Winfrey that her grandmother, mother and aunts all married men who abused them.

"Not only that, there were nine siblings -- four of the five sisters married abusive men," she says. "And all of the brothers turned out to be abusive husbands, except for one."

In another sneak peek released Friday, "Good Morning America" anchor Amy Robach recounts a story in which colleague Robin Roberts who, like Robach, previously battled breast cancer, showed up at her chemotherapy appointment.

The two ABC anchors attend the same oncologist, so Roberts surprised her at the office to lend support to her co-anchor. "She was there to walk me down the hall to the place where she sat seven years earlier," Robach says in the clip.

Watch the Morgan interview above and the Robach video below. The episode airs Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. on OWN.
