Jaycee Dugard Will Talk On TV For The First Time, But Her Daughters Are Off-Limits — Thank God!

TV networks are bidding for the first interview with Jaycee, who was kidnapped and held captive for 18 years, and it could make her millions of dollars.

It’s certain to be an emotional occasion — Jaycee Dugard, 31, was held hostage in a backyard shelter and forced to bear two children by her kidnapper, convicted sex offender Philip Garrido. Is she right to cash in on her story?

Jaycee’s astonishing story captured the hearts of America, first when she disappeared, at the age of 11, and again when she was reunited with her family in 2009.

A home video showing Jaycee playing with her mother and daughter, shortly after she returned home in 2009 was sold to ABC for $200,000 — and network bosses are clamoring again to air her first words.

Diane Sawyer, Tom Brokaw, Anderson Cooper and Katie Couric are all in the running to land the interview, depending on which network wins the race, and it will air in July, shortly before the release of her memoirStolen Life.

Publicist Nancy Selzer claims Jaycee will get to choose who interviews her and reveals there will be two very important absentees from the sit-down — Jaycee’s daughters Angel, 16, and Starlit, 12. “The kids are minors and are off limits,” she insists.

We’re glad the children are being shielded from the limelight, but how do you feel about her speaking out? And will you watch?

I read her book. She did what she had to do to survive. She cooperated with them, tried to please them, and befriended them as much as she could. I believe that Phillip and Nancy Garrido are sociopaths, and there is no doubt in my mind that if Jaycee had not done all those things and had instead made trouble for Philip and Nancy Garrido, they would have killed her.
