Paula says her 19-year-old daughter, Kylie, is on a path of self-destruction. She says Kylie developed an eating disorder at 12 years old and for the last seven years, the teen has been spinning dangerously out of control. Paula says Kylie abuses drugs and alcohol -- and recently started appearing in adult movies. Kylie admits her modeling dreams took a dark turn when she started performing in adult films, but she blames her mom for her bad choices. Kylie claims that Paula is an alcoholic, has stolen her prescription pills, and is responsible for introducing her to binging and purging. Kylie also accuses Paula of encouraging her to appear in adult films, driving her to two shoots and getting her tested for STDs. Paula denies all of Kylie’s claims. Who is telling the truth? Then, Kylie’s father, Cory, joins the show. Is he making Kylie’s problems better -- or worse? If you’re the parent of a troubled teen, tune in!

Find out what happened on the show.

I hope this girl makes it without her parents, she dont need them! They obviously destroyed her childhood. Her mother should be jailed for crimes against human nature.


Best of luck to kylie

That girl has had it tough, the reason she looks cheeky is because she has finally got her witch of a mother backed into the corner she wished. Her mother was found out. Both parents are bad examples, but the mother is the vampire that sucked the life out of this child, jealousy maybe.


I really hope she can recover 80% because I don't think its possible to recover 100% from the sexual abuse she will have suffered in porn

While I understand Kylie, an adult needs to make wiser life choices, I think it’s important to factor in her childhood experiences.

Kylie grew up with a mother who abuses alcohol, suffers from an eating disorder and, at best, sent confusing messages to Kylie about body image, relationship with food, alcohol use, love and self-worth. During the show, it was impossible for anyone on stage to finish what they had to say because the mother would cut in and talk over others. There was also mental health concerns about the father (OCD?) and he was not a positive influence in Kylie’s life

Kylie is a by-product of unhealthy parenting. Whatever intervention or treatment Kylie will receive, I hope she can finally learn to be free from her parents’ toxic behaviours.

You say, "Her development has stopped at 12". I say Boo Hoo!. What if her mother's development stopped at 12? What if her father's development stopped at 12? Again boo hoo. You wouldn't give a crap about her parents having stunted development because they're adults...well so is she now and the World is stuck with her. She needs to be made accountable for her own actions because she won't develop beyond 12 if people keep making excuses for her and don't let her own her choices. She's like Casey Anthony, a spoilt brat who when expected to look after her "responsibilities" takes the easy out and then blames someone else.

I agree with you, that 19yr old was making up 90% of what she said. As a person who had a horrible childhood, I know if I sat across from the people who "raised" me, I would not be laughing like a moron and looking around to see everyone's reaction while they get grilled. I would be uncomfortable in the same room as them. I have no doubt she was also on some type of substance there and she needs to grow up, because her parents won't be accountable for her crap choices in the real world (i.e. outside her and Dr Phil's minds). Seems Dr Phil never was very good at solving the "issues" of teenagers on his show- starting with Alex who still tries to blame her parents because Dr Phil made that an OK thing to do (except she won't take the blame for what she does to her kids now). A vicious cycle.

As I said above, she is not a baby. She is a 19yr old adult who chooses to do things and blame her parents. That will only work for so long...do you think you would have sympathy for her mother blaming her parents for the way she is? Doubt it. That 19yr old lady sat there grinningand laughing like a clown while blaming her mother and Dr Phil didn't even notice. Clearly only there for sympathy and free advertising. As far as her lying, she kept saying things and then looking around and not looking at Dr Phil or her mother. When she blamed her father for her losing weight in his house, that was another obvious lie. Her blaming her mother for her choice to do pornography (because her mother expected her to get a JOB) was a cop out which Dr Phil joined in on too.

I believe the daugher did not have good role models, but can start making smart decisions.   I hope all 3 get the help they need to be a far better family.
