(Los Angeles, CA, August 1, 2012) - With news reports of bullying now almost a weekly occurrence, E!'s Laura Ling reached out to some of pop culture's biggest and most respected names to share their very personal experiences with bullying. Sitting down one-on-one with President Bill Clinton, along with Mike Tyson, Khloe Kardashian, Jillian Michaels, Lance Bass and Michelle Trachtenberg, Ling and E! Investigates set out to demonstrate that no one is immune to bullying, and that no one - including the bullies themselves - needs to be defined or defeated by it. Also featured in this one-hour episode, two young adults who are currently victims of bullying get special surprise visits from their favorite celebs who speak with them about staying strong and persevering. E! Investigates: Bullying: Celebs Speak Out premieres on August 13 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT on E!

Select Quotes from the episode include:

"[Children] have to maintain control of their own lives. It begins with how they see themselves - that their life is worth just as much as the person doing the bullying and that they have to see themselves as worthy!"- President Bill Clinton

"I just want to be able to be a modern voice and a young voice to show kids and young adults that you can get through this because I did. And I do hope that if just one teen thinks that 'my life is over, I just want to kill myself' [and that they] see this and don't, then what I went through as a kid was worth it." - Actress Michelle Trachtenberg

"They kicked the [stuff] out of me. They'd just do whatever they wanted to do. They'd hit you with [stuff], they'd piss on you, beat your [freaking] ass." - Heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson

"Listen, if a guy is getting bullied, he has to go through the authorities if it is really affecting his life and his living in the community. And these people need to be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law. I stood up to a bully...and I don't advise everyone to do that because you never know what kind of guy you're dealing with." - Heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson

"I had one little friend who was also my 'loser' friend and we were sitting by ourselves under a tree having lunch and all the kids surrounded us and just started throwing things at us and calling us names and I was hysterical. I went home and told my mom and she pulled me out of school." - Fitness Expert, Jillian Michaels

"I would definitely make the gay jokes and I would laugh right with the others that were picking on other kids, so I would consider myself right there with the biggest bully... I just wanted to fit in. I wanted to be cool and I didn't want to be an outsider, so of course I would join right in with those jokes and I would repeat them all to my friends." - Entertainer, Lance Bass

"It made me go even deeper into the closet because I didn't want people to say those things about me." - Entertainer, Lance Bass

"I do feel that my childhood kind of prepared me because now I get called every type of name still. I laugh about it most of the time. I think just from my being picked on and I didn't have a voice for so long and then once I got a voice it just has never shut up!" - E! star and entrepreneur, Khloe Kardashian

This not-to-be-missed episode of E! Investigates: Bullying: Celebs Speak Out airs on August 13 at 8:00 PM , ET/PT on E!
