Ellen Degeneres proved to be a sensitive and sympathetic interviewer when So You Think You Can Dance judge, Mary Murphy, stopped by the Ellen Degeneres show to tell the story of her 8-year marriage to an abusive partner.
Mary teared up a few times as she described the rape and beatings dealt by her controlling husband, and her parents who insisted Mary needed to “make the marriage work.”

Mary is featured in a cover story in this week’s US Magazine
