Letitia Conliffe On The View

Struggling mom-turned-caregiver to her community gets heartwarming surprise live on The View.

Letitia Conliffe, once a homeless single mom, now provides love and care for the children in her community in need — making sure they are never in the position she was in. The View surprised her with over $70,000 worth of gifts from various companies that will help her continue her good work through her club for kids, Lil’ 4’s.

"I just want to give them a chance in life and let them know whatever you go through, let Miss Letitia go through [it] with you," Conliffe told us.

Davis has launched the careers of everyone from Janis Joplin and Bruce Springsteen to Kelly Clarkson, but the biggest surprise may be in his personal life.

Music Legend Clive Davis Reveals He Is Bisexual

Clive Davis: When the marriage failed-- in the mid '80s, I opened myself up to the possibility that I could have a relationship with a man as well as the two that I had with a woman. I felt it was private, number one, as far as my not revealing it. But I did immediately (LAUGH) reveal it to the people who count.

Music Legend Clive Davis Explains His Bisexuality

Clive Davis: I'm still attracted to women. So that it-- you don't have to be only one thing or another. For me, it's the person. I'm in a monogamous relationship. I respect monogamy. And I hope that this is understood.

Claire Danes

At the podium, they had mere seconds to say their thank-yous before the music unceremoniously ushered them off. But backstage, Sunday's Emmy Award winners got candid, predicting fights over trophies, extolling the virtues of nipple covers and even hinting at an on-set tryst (well, that was a joke by Damian Lewis of 'Homeland,' but still). Good Morning America's SHEILA MARIKAR, pieced together these moments.

RELATED: Top Moments From the 2012 Emmys

Here are the 10 best quotes from backstage:

1. Eric Stonestreet on how his "Modern Family" co-star Ed O'Neill will react to his Emmy win: "It's going to be pretty violent, I'm sure. Ed's going to do his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on me and steal it."

2. Damian Lewis on how he and the very pregnant Claire Danes will celebrate their "Homeland" wins: "We're going to go away to a romantic island together just for the weekend. When that baby's ginger, you guys are going to have a field day."

3. Julie Bowen on nipple covers, which she mentioned three times in her acceptance speech: "It's a standards and practice thing and it makes me laugh every day and it becomes my on-set joke that I'll try and slide by it. And every day, there's some poor girl who's lovely and who has to pull me aside and hand me these bits of rubber. It makes me laugh."

4. "Two and a Half Men's" Jon Cryer on whether he watches anything surprising on TV: "Porn, but I don't think that's surprising."

5. "Modern Family" creator Steve Levitan on how the show has affected marriage equality: "I'm hoping that over time, all political candidates support marriage equality. It's never been the agenda of 'Modern Family.' We've always tried to make people laugh and make human, relatable stories. But if our show can contribute in any way, even the smallest way, in making people more open and understanding, then we will all be very, very proud of that."

6. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss on how the upcoming election has influenced "Veep": "There's a lot of good, rich material out of there from which to glean and there are little morsels we can take away, almost every day, it seems."
