Nancy Reagan was a child beater who lived in a fog of tranquilizers, says her estranged daughter.
Patti Davis says there were times when her mother hit her every day as she was growing up, but when Ms. Davis told her father, then-California Gov. Ronald Reagan, he wouldn't believe her.
Her recollections about the former first family will be aired Thursday night on ABC-TV's "PrimeTime Live." Story on A9.
