A&E Network will air the Biography special “Mary Kay Letourneau: Autobiography,” a raw two-hour documentary following former teacher Mary Kay Letourneau as she recounts her tumultuous past in her most in-depth confessional to date. Mary, a Seattle grade school teacher, stunned the world when she fell in love with her 13-year-old former sixth grade student Vili Fualaau.
Their subsequent relationship ultimately sent her to prison for more than seven years, isolating her from her children and altering the course of her life forever. Mary reveals key never-before-heard details as she shares her deeply emotional story of forbidden love, her legal troubles and the media firestorm that followed.
Throughout the engrossing two hour special, Mary and Villi detail their early years, how their relationship came to be and how it intrigued and disturbed the country. Delving further, Mary shares her feelings of injustice and betrayal when she lost contact with her children and the effect her choices have had on both her and her family. Mary’s lawyers, friends and a fellow prison inmate help tell this complex story. Currently working as a paralegal, Mary talks about her future and what it may hold for her and her family.
