Channing says her husband was a "control freak" who never even let her keep her own paychecks. She says now that she has revealed the abuse, she is hearing from other women who say they're stuck in similar relationships. "There's something wrong, Larry, and nobody knows about it," Channing said. "They're all voiceless about it. They're afraid to speak.
