  • not all of them... I was a paid participant on Geraldo in 1991, but my friend was on with me and her story was for real...also the other two participants were for real as well....but... I was given a much more heinous story than the other three women, mine was all fake.. I was only on because my friend was epileptic and couldnt travel alone, they asked me to play a part on the show for air fare, lodging and $250..well, hell ya I did it!!! My friend also got paid for her true story.....

  • lol yes. Some of the audience members are actors, employees of the show or people they pulled off the streets begging to come.
