Nancy O'Dell Remembers

Series premieres Monday, April 3 at 9pm ET/PT with Princess Diana episode.

She was the fairytale princess and perhaps the most beloved woman not only in England but in the world. Princess Diana was the People's Princess and the world was her stage. Then tragedy struck on August 31, 1997 as news broke that Princess Diana was killed in a horrific car crash that also took the life of her lover, Dodi Fayed, the heir to Harrods and son of a billionaire, as they tried to elude the paparazzi. In Nancy O'Dell Remembers, host and entertainment reporter Nancy O'Dell shares her memories of what it was like to board a plane within 24 hours of the accident to cover what she calls to this day the "biggest story" of her career. She recounts the crowds that descended upon London, the outcry when the Monarchy didn't rush back from their summer holiday for five days and the image of Diana's two young sons walking behind their mother's casket as crowds threw flowers at the funeral procession.

Nancy O'Dell Remembers features host and entertainment reporter Nancy O'Dell presenting her intimate first-hand accounts of monumental celebrity stories including the passing of Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Robin Williams and Joan Rivers. With more than 20 years of reporting on celebrities and Hollywood, O'Dell will share her personal stories, photos and archive footage as well as her own interviews. Nancy O'Dell Remembers is executive produced by Nancy O'Dell and John Ferriter, Meryl Gitter Michon and Robyn Symon, and is produced by Nancy O'Dell Enterprises, The Alternative and 99 Media Group.

Rowling transforms herself from a destitute and depressed single mother to the world's first billionaire author. In J.K.
