EMOTIONS RUN HIGH WHEN NANNY JO HELPS A RECENTLY-WIDOWED MOTHER
OF TWO LEARN TO PARENT ALONE, ON ABC'S "SUPERNANNY"
"Lewis Family" -- When Antoinette met Dwight through best friend Rolin, everyone in their circle of friends knew they were meant for each other. The pair of them didn't waste time� they married and bought their first home together in Southern California. Their idyllic life got even better when Antoinette realized they were pregnant with their first child, daughter Selah. Dwight was promoted at work as an engineer and brought home an executive's salary. They were a happy little family, with the normal challenges of guiding daughter Selah through her terrible twos and making a house into a home. More good news came when Antoinette learned she and Dwight were pregnant again and she would give birth to a son. That's when their lives were shattered. Dwight learned the stomach ulcers he was being treated for had been misdiagnosed�he actually had stage III gastric cancer. He lived for another eight months, long enough to spend a few months with his newborn son, and died on August 14, 2008. His deathbed wish was for his wife to carry on and be a happy mom to their kids. The day before her husband died, Antoinette called Supernanny asking for help learning to parent alone. Emotions run high when Jo Frost arrives shortly thereafter in this powerful episode of "Supernanny," FRIDAY, MAY 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 11/21/08)
