’80s teen actress Molly Ringwald, reality weight loss star Ruby Gettinger, “Real Housewives’” Dina Manzo and pastor Ted Haggard are featured in the “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” finale, airing at 9 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1, on OWN.

A summary of the episode, provided by OWN, is as follows:

Former teen queen Molly Ringwald charmed us in the ’80s classic films “Pretty in Pink,” and “Sixteen Candles.”  Today, we catch up with her, all grown up, at the Grammy museum in Los Angeles where she reveals her jazz roots and surprising new career as a singer.  She talks about why she thinks American teens related to her, what it was like growing up in front of the camera and dealing with fame at an early age.  Then, former reality star of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” Dina Manzo reveals why she left the series, what she has to say about Teresa Giudice’s federal fraud charges and her feud with estranged sister, Œ”Housewife” Caroline Manzo.  Then, OWN’s popular sextuplet family “6 Little McGhees” give a special glimpse inside their busy home.  Next, reality star Ruby Gettinger who weighed 716 lbs at her heaviest and was on the “Oprah Show” in 2009, talks about her weight loss journey today and if she’s been able to keep off the pounds.  Finally, Ted Haggard was one of the most influential evangelicals in the country with millions of followers until his world came crashing down around him in 2006 amid claims that he paid a male escort for drugs and sexual relations.  In 2010, Haggard appeared on the “Oprah Show” in his first interview after the scandal.  We check in with him and his wife to see how they’re doing today.
