Pat Smith is happily married to NFL star running back Emmitt Smith. But she wasn’t always in a
healthy relationship full of love and respect.
The former beauty queen was once trapped in an abusive relationship, which she opened up
about in a new radio interview helping women understand the nature of abuse, and how to get
out of a volatile situation.
“Typically, when somebody abuses you there’s a void,” explained Smith during an exclusive chat
on the nationally syndicated radio show, Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell.
“They can sense the vulnerability, the neediness and the void,” said the mother of five, who
admitted, “I didn’t know my worth.”
