TopVet: Montel Williams, Talk-Show Host

Montel Brian Hank Williams – Montel to his fans – has become a nationally respected talk-show host. His “Montel Williams Show,” for many years one of the more popular offerings on daytime television, doesn’t dwell only on sex and celebrity, although the trashy and the trendy are the bread-and-butter of talk shows; episodes also deal with such topics as families torn asunder by drugs, uniting family members who have never met each other, and uniting families torn apart by unfaithfulness.
