Pat Smith is happily married to NFL star running back Emmitt Smith. But she wasn’t always in a

healthy relationship full of love and respect.

The former beauty queen was once trapped in an abusive relationship, which she opened up

about in a new radio interview helping women understand the nature of abuse, and how to get

out of a volatile situation.

“Typically, when somebody abuses you there’s a void,” explained Smith during an exclusive chat

on the nationally syndicated radio show, Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell.

“They can sense the vulnerability, the neediness and the void,” said the mother of five, who

admitted, “I didn’t know my worth.”

The author of Second Chances: Finding Healing for Your Pain, Regaining Your Strength,

Celebrating Your new Life took calls from listeners seeking advice on how to be confident, live

their best life and escape unhealthy romantic ties.
