Teri Hatcher, Cybill Shepherd and a rare appearance by 'Dynasty' star Linda Evans highlighted Winfrey's show, that revealed the insecurities and physical challenges with the stars. The group of 3 contends they have had to deal with the intense cultural strain to remain youthful and flawless, which they've decided they're past obsessing over anymore.

When Teri Hatcher posted bare-faced and sopping wet-haired photographs directly out of the bath on her Facebook page just weeks ago, a public frenzy ensued over the star's willingness to expose her self-described undereye circles, uneven skin tone and clearly non-Botoxed brow furrows. "I don't wish to quit taking glamorous pictures -- they're fun -- but I just want people to understand the truth," Hatcher told Oprah. "I believe if we can accept the truth and reveal the mystery, we are able to appreciate both issues."

The 45 year-old celebrity did admit to receiving Botox treatments a few years after child Emerson Rose was born in 1997 because she looked 'so exhausted,' although the former 'Superman' star states she has not had injections since.

Hatcher took a flip cam along on her early morning routine so viewers could observe her transformation from disheveled and crinkled-looking woman who woke up at 5:23am, to a near-flawless 'Desperate Housewives' star only a couple hours later. Squinting directly into the camera before make-up was about to begin, the star joked, "Can you say sh-t on 'Oprah'? Simply because that is what I look like!"

The day finished with Hatcher's lengthy evening bath tub routine, where she took off her make-up in front of the camera right after a long day's work in order to show other ladies that she looks just like them when they do the same. "I'm prepared to be naked in the bath tub on behalf of women feeling good about themselves," stated Hatcher, of which brought cheers from the 'Oprah' crowd.

Cybill Shepherd followed, telling Oprah Winfrey that despite being on seven covers of Glamour magazine, she would always look in the mirror after seeing 1 and beat herself up for not looking like the highly retouched and shiny picture. "I would go home and tell myself, 'Why don't I look like that cover?'" the 60 year-old told Oprah.

After years of enjoying the Hollywood opportunities her beauty opened up the doors for, Shepherd states that the reality of getting older hit her particularly tough. "I was scared that when I got older, I'd not be valued. You had been throw away in this throw away culture," Shepherd informed Oprah. "I remember noticing when men had been looking at my daughters, and not at me. I'd be out and see men's eyes going towards younger ladies. It absolutely was disturbing."

The one-time girlfriend of Elvis Presley says she has since learned that her value exists in her inner wisdom, which she strives to discover things she loves about her physique everyday.

A glowing Linda Evans made an appearance afterwards, and instantly admitted to an astonished Oprah that she had never considered herself being an attractive lady. "What you look like has nothing to do with what you think about yourself," stated Evans.

When she was 28, first husband John Derek left Evans for 15 year-old Bo Derek -- which Evans states she handled by replacing his absence with a busy career. The actress said she discovered that just as unsatisfying simply because of the fluctuations of recognition based entirely on viewers ratings.

The former 'Dynasty' star admitted to plastic surgery in her 50s, which she attributed to wanting to appear attractive for her sweetheart at that time -- musician Yanni -- who was twelve years her junior. "I was in love. But I'm not sorry I got it," said Evans, who additional elaborated that the upkeep required to maintain the look was more than she was interested in continuing.

Right after departing Hollywood to move to Rainier, Washington while on a 'spiritual journey,' Evans says she gained twenty-five lbs in her first year alone because she could finally enjoy food and drink, and that she never felt more healthy or much more satisfied with the glare of the spotlight no longer on her. "I'm happier simply because I do not define myself by what other people believe. In my 50s, I was forced to give up the game. You get older and wiser, that is the great thing about getting older," Evans informed Oprah. "You get much more certain in your self and who you are and what you want."

Video cameras followed Evans to her modest one bedroom home, set on 70 acres of bird-singing terrain with a river running through it. Evans smiled as she described nearby properties belonging to her sister, nephew and step daughter with ex-husband Derek, whom she states she is extremely close to.

Obviously comfortable and more fulfilled than ever before, the anything-but Desperate Housewife's closing comments said it best.

"There's an obligation these people marketing to us have on how else we can define beauty. No one is giving us an option to open our mind to what else could be considered beautiful," said Hatcher, who then looked directly at Evans. "What is more beautiful than realizing this fantastic peace in your life?"
