This week on 20/20:
OFF THE RAILS: He’s the kind of guy anyone would find attractive… tall, clean cut and good looking. And with his profile on dating websites, and frequent calls to chat lines, both women and men were drawn to him, sometimes for romance … but usually always for sex. Friends say he had thousands of lovers – but Glenn Mills was hiding a secret. He’d been diagnosed HIV positive, but was relentlessly pursing unsafe sex with as many people as possible. Tonight on 20/20 Libby Middlebrook brings you the exclusive story, behind the story. Who was Glenn Mills really? And why was he driven on his deadly quest? We hear in his own words why he did it and talk to those he put at risk … and tragically infected.
THE BLING RING: Who wouldn’t like to take a peek inside Paris Hilton’s wardrobe? Try on Lindsay Lohan’s designer dresses? Or have a good look around Hills star Audrina Patridge’s home? While most of us can only dream… a group of teens has been arrested for doing just that! Police say they stole more than three million dollars worth of bling and high end brands. As they reveal to 20/20 they wanted to wear it themselves, after falling in love with the lifestyle they could see on television. You’ll see the security footage that finally nabbed them… and they show us how they got away with it for so long.
OPEN SOULS: They’re the kiwi band with a big story. Open Souls has grown to a nine piece band, and their slick Motown influenced sound is getting noticed. 20/20’s Hugh Hughes talks to Tyra Hammond, the face of the band, who’s already successfully collaborated with cousin Scribe, about her early upbringing with family talent quests, and hits the road with the band as they promote their second album, Standing in the Rain.
TANTASTIC: You may be yearning to keep that summer tan you worked so hard on, but tonight an undercover investigation reveals that all that’s golden isn’t necessary good for you. 20/20 takes you on an undercover sting where we suss out just what customers are being told. You’ll be amazed at some of the dodgy advice our hidden cameras pick up… and as 22-year old Amanda tells us, it’s information just like it, that’s left her with an enormous scar.
PLUS Search for Justice – And an update on the brave kiwi teenager who lost a leg to a drunk driver… her fight for justice, and her newfound independence.
