FYI I can't believe I am about to post this but I am because I am truly upset over this episode and I just couldn't believe Dr Phil didn't disagree with this guy on certain issues that were a "no brainer" wrong. Right now though I really don't even care. To be honest I'm actually appalled at whatDr Phil that I don't even think I will watch him again! 

But here'sserious and honest question I have. I truly, truly do not get this, I think it's BS. And if it's true I just don't think I can handle it. I think and believe with my whole heart that this would be the Ultimate betrayal, and I would lose hope of anyone being faithful, and loyal to anyone ever, in any area of their lives. When I said I am upset about this, that is an understatement. They're talking about marriage and First they're talking about men and how they are the ones losing their desire for sex, and that the women are the ones writing in day after day because their husbands don't want to touc them. Now I know that this is real I have friends that have gone through this but I'm working up to the next part, the part I am just floored and truly just in disbelief over. Not to mention pissed about! To be honest if my husband admitted to this I would divorce him. Not a doubt in my mind! Nope, not one!



So they start sharing different things that a couple can do to rekindle the spark. This rabbi says and I quote! "Men need to probe their wives erotic mind, and give their wives a erotic interrogations. Ask her about her fantasies, Women have elaborate sexual fantasies, not like the male sexual fantasies which are very pornographic and straightforward"  so Dr Phil ask so you're saying women are very  an-erotic (sp?) meaning  "very complex" yes he says. He (the rabbi ) then proceeds to say that "men would be taken back by the degree on which their wives fantasize about other men, and they hide this from their husbands because they don't think that the very brittle  mans libido can handle it" he then says "it's better then the men because 80% of men are fantasizing about other women while having sex with their wives" ARE you FREAKING kidding me! Are you freaking kidding me!!! 



People I have done some terrible things in my life, gone down roads that I should have never gone, and wish I could take back but one thing I don't ever want to do or ever even want to entertain or think that it's ok to do is fantasize about having sex with another man while I'm with my husband. Noway, just wrong on so many levels. 

Then the "rabbi"  says women need to share it with their husband! 



This guy says women don't share this with their husbands because "they don't think that the man's brittle libido could handle it" what the heck! 

Umm what about this Mr "expert on sex rabbi" " she don't share it because "it's freaking cheating! It's total disrespect for your husband, and freaking messed up crap, it's degrading to him, and hurtful" but what would any of that have to do with anything? Obviously those things don't enter men's minds or what?

I like the catfish stories.  They are somewhat funny and also a bit sad.  Would like to see more of these.  Would also like follow ups.

I just watched this episode on OWN. The overweight man in the Dr. Phil House was called John and his father was Steven. I just watched My 600 lb. Life this week and the overweight man was called Steven and his brother Justin were featured. The man from the Dr. Phil show now weighs in excess of ,800 pounds and is trying for gastric bypass surgery. His younger brother is over 600 lbs.  but believes he can do it himself. What help was offered to the man and what happened? I am amazed he is still alive. I can't believe he is able to walk.

He showed a gal who thought it's nothing to have 2 or 3 drinks at dinner and then drivehome.


There is a lady right now. Good lady, claims it was the first time she'd ever gotten behind the wheel of the car after dirnking .. whether that's true or not, I don't know, but they admitted that this was her first offense ... KILLED A FAMILY OF 5, and is in jail for LIFE.


Everyone will say, "Good! She killed five people through her actions, she SHOULD be in jail.


Then what about those who have been caught numerous times with DUI, and still are out there on the road? WHY is that okay? Seriously? 


I get it the first time. People make mistakes. He said that a skinny gal who drinks 2 drinks is already at a blood alcohol of .08. BUT once you've been behind the wheel A SINGLE TIME you KNOW you had no business being there, and that should be the only needed lesson. So STOP! Make a law that if a person has had a previous DUI within a 10 - year period, no more driving, period! Watch them stop then!


When I was quite young, I went to an office party. I drank SIX LIQUOR DRINKS. I'd never drank before, so I thought I was doing right, because I was keeping up with the rounds. Boy, was I stupid. A co-worker offered to drive home behind me, to prevent whatever she could. This was BEFORE the age of drinking and driving. Do you think I EVER did that again? Hell, No! 


My daughter is now 18. I hate it with a passion, but she has a 23 year old boyfriend, turning 24 this month, and when she goves over there, she has to spend the night, because she drinks. Every time. So, I'm planning on putting her butt in front of this episode to remind her never to drink and drive, and never get into the car with someone who has been drinking or donig drugs. Let's hope she listens.

I'm really grateful that the show helped not one, but two, people! Something I've asked professional staff members in the past is, what are they doing that I can continue at hone. I realize that she won't be living with you for long, if at all, but communicating and reminding her whatever they recommend. To prevent nagging, find a two or three word phrase that helps remind her of what they said, just like the One Day at a Time type phrase.


I hope you're able to spend a lot of time with the granddaughter, so she will feel safe and stable while your daughter (?) continues to heal. Good luck, with everything.

My favorite show  is MINE! I never actually watched it but writing Dr Phil  for  help was the best thing I've ever done in my whole life!  I have a beautiful healthy 3 month old Grand baby,  and my baby is still at Origins getting the help she so desperately needed.  I'll be eternally grateful to Dr Phil and his incredible staff for saving 2 lives. I'm convinced that had I not received help from you that I would have buried 2 girls. Thank you, Sharon.

I love all of them but today's comment I will never forget.  As I just posted,  Jessica making the girl that she found sleeping with her ex to go home naked!!!      lmao!!   shame on me!!     I very much like your shows because you listen and tell them just common sense!    You also are very open minded you don;t take sides.  You would be a great Judge!!

I just watched this episode and I have to say that I am quite disappointed in the way Dr. Phil handled the mother of "Nick". At the end of the show, the "mother" taunted the mother of the girl that was being "bullied" by making a hand gesture to her because she was staring at her. To me, this IS bullying at its finest. It's no wonder their son is accused of bullying this poor girl. At first I thought the mother of the girl was going way above and beyond the "bullying" criteria for her own personal goals but after seeing that, I got it and believed everything she was saying previously in the show! Dr. Phil should have ripped in to that mother for being so "childish" and acting that way in the audience. He should have let her know that her son is following by example and she is the one that needs help!

Ok here is a true story
A guy loved a girl for 4 years
And he was out of his country for 15 years
Till last year he came and saw her
Then he felt love because he loved her
They got engaged
On 09/29/15 she was 22 he was 26
He been honest with her
She wasn't
He loved her from bottom of his heart
And she didn't love him
He puted her needs first and he tearted her like a queen and made all her dreams come true and all her wishes come true
And he never said no to anything for her he give her the best and wanted the best
He never cheated on her he never miss treated her and she been cheating on him
Sance day one and he trusted her the girl witch spose to be his  faincey, the couple   got married and she is still cheating on him the husband did know she was cheating and  she was messaging the guy who she is chteing with while  the lealt el dokla telling him evey detail she was telling the other guy how her husband was doing it with her and her husband asked her who you talking to she said her mom and sister, on her husband birthday  her husband found out she was cheating  kept it to him self because she was a family and her sister was a witness and her dad but not her mom because they did not want her mom to have a heart attack and suffer and he was going to istor 3laha
