The Re-Invention of Tammy Faye

Tammy Faye Bakker and her ex-husband Jim once sat atop the Praise the Lord broadcasting empire, with a theme park, lavish homes and even a satellite. Now the remarried Tammy Faye Messner has become a remarkably popular performer with gay audiences. NPR's Neda Ulaby charts Tammy Faye's unlikely rebirth after a spectacular fall from grace.
