  1. As tony Robbins says on his audio that is was 4 or 5 women spreading false news, well it’s going to be a whole heck of a lot more women sharing the truth of what he has done. Never met a person who leads a more hypocritical life. Icebergs are huge!!!

    1. For sure! It seems like more and more women come out every day – and more women are realizing that the things they experienced were actually NOT okay.
