Siblings separated as children who no longer recognize each other are pitted against each other in a war involving drugs, crime and betrayal.

Almost 25 years later their paths cross, but they're on opposite sides of the law and don't realise they're related.

The Woman with 15 Personalities

Channel: eReality (Openview 108)
TX Time: 17h00
Genre: Documentary

The Woman with 15 Personalities

Meet Paula, a woman with 14 different personalities each living inside her mind.

She has Dissociative Identity Disorder, a condition in which its victims have at least two distinct identities that express themselves and control their behaviour.

Paula's "alters" range from a 12-year-old basketball player to a fragile 5-year-old. They share a common goal of protecting Paula from a childhood trauma.

We follow Paula as she faces the challenge of "integrating" all 14 alters back into one self.

But as we learn more about her — and them — we begin to realise that assimilating all the personalities may not necessarily be what Paula wants.

American Beauty Star 2

With the beginning of a new year, comes the opportunity for new looks.

Whether it's the perfect cat eye or crown braid, Lifetime's beauty competition series has all your glam desires covered with the return of the show.

Model Ashley Graham joins as the new host with celebrity makeup artist Sir John returning as mentor and a new panel of judges that include the world's original supermodel Christie Brinkley, Cosmopolitan's Chief Beauty Director Leah Wyar, and celebrity fashion and beauty photographer Yu Tsai.

Season 2 features 14 hair and makeup artists who will compete in a series of intense challenges, from creating high-end editorial looks to the latest red carpet and runway-ready beauty trends.

The stakes are even higher this season as the contestants will be responsible for executing every aspect of their look, from hair to makeup and everything in between.

Each judge will use their unique expertise and decide who stays in and who packs up their brushes in each episode, leading to an explosive live season finale event where viewers from across the USA will vote for their favourite artist and help determine who will be the next American Beauty Star.

The winner will receive over $100,000 in cash and prizes including a $50,000 contract as a Consulting Beauty Artist with Revlon, an editorial feature in Cosmopolitan magazine, an all-expenses paid trip to New York City to see the hit Broadway musical Waitress, $10,000 worth of JTV jewelry and an opportunity to design their own signature collection of Zenni Eyewear.
