Supermodel Carré Otis, whose new memoir, "Beauty, Disrupted," gives details on the not so glamorous side of her life, including an eating disorder, alleged exploitation, drugs and abuse.
On Tuesday's episode of "Anderson," Otis sets the record straight about her high profile and tumultuous relationship with actor Mickey Rourke, and says while it appeared she was living a glamorous Hollywood life, underneath it all she was really only hanging on by a thread.
As part of the interview, Otis tells Anderson how her then husband, Mickey Rourke, put a gun to her head on their honeymoon, because she did not want to partake in his partying.
