While there are plenty of disturbing memories in the brave book, the Daily Mail obtained a particularly scary passage depicting a moment when Vargas got blacked out in a public park following a late-MORNING interview for 20/20 in July of 2012.
According to the mother of two, that morning she downed a bottle of wine to compensate for a terrible hangover. Upon leaving the office, she somehow ended up in a park incoherent and with "two sketchy guys" circling her.
Luckily for the news anchor, a good samaritan saved her from the terrible situation. Apparently the journalist managed to give her address to the concerned civilian before passing out.
In a follow-up interview with People Magazine, the 54-year-old went on to describe the aftermath in heartbreaking detail:

Stacy Keibler has a lot on her mind, now that her and George Clooney are officially exes. So we should all give her a break for blurting out a curse word on live TV on Tuesday!
Our girl Stace was a guest on Good Morning America. We guess she was trying to make Georgie jealous by blindfolding herself and sticking random objects in her mouth?
But as host Elizabeth Vargas handed her the next item to open wide for, Stacy's hand slipped and that's when she let the swear word fly!
We all screw up and say a dirty word sometime, Stacy! And no matter how filthy your mouth is, you still look as fresh and lovely as a long-stemmed rose!
Ch-ch-check out the on-air gaffe that had Stacy apologizing for her potty mouth …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Tom Hanks and Good Morning America's Elizabeth Vargas were apologizing like crazy LIVE on ABC this morning for an accidental F-bomb he dropped in the middle of an interview.
It wasn't really the nicest guy in Hollywood's fault though.
After giving Vargas fair warning that talking in a particular accent would result mostly in "swear words", she continued to egg him on and as a result, she got him to utter the biggest, baddest swear word there is (above).
Of course, he immediately covered his mouth after the slip and played it off like a boss before making the entire studio crew laugh out loud seconds later.
But to any children watching, Tom Hanks wants you to know he's sorry!
