Pageant mom Lori made national headlines in 2012, after she was featured on a reality TV show, bleaching her then 9-year-old daughter, Alaska’s, teeth and dyeing the girl’s eyelashes, while she appeared to cry out in pain. Now, Lori is in the news again, after Alaska’s picture was posted on TheDirty.com, along with a man’s claim that he performed a sexual act while looking at the photo. Lori -- whose 8-year-old son, Braxton, and 10-month-old son, Chandler, are also in pageants -- says she did nothing wrong, and she wants her daughter’s photo removed from the site. Lori and her fiancé, Jay, contacted authorities and say they were told that nothing could be done, since they put their child in the national spotlight. When the couple faces the site’s founder, Nik Richie, will he agree to take down the post? And, does Lori take any ownership in the situation? Then, 21-year-old mother of three Brittany made headlines last year after she got drunk and had sex with a 14-year-old boy -- who she claims she thought was older -- and later learned she was pregnant, while engaged to another man. Brittany was arrested and pleaded guilty to felony sexual assault and was sentenced to two years’ probation. Whom does she blame for what happened? And, does she know who fathered her youngest child? Plus, Dr. Phil digs deep into Brittany’s life to find out why she’s making destructive decisions and offers her help in moving forward. Can she learn to make better choices? This program contains strong sexual content. Viewer discretion advised.

Find out what happened on the show.

Dear Lori


I saw you on the show Dr.Phil and you trying to tell that guy to take down that picture of your daughter on his website. But you gotta be careful because everyone else might see it and post it on a different website. But still don't you think it's time you want to take a break with the pageants? besides eventhough your kids are good at it how are they gonna come to their peers when they grow up. because I've heard that beauty pageants can sometimes well lowers self esteem....even if it means giving them confidence.

I completely agree with you! 

And it's not even a woman being sexualized here! It's a child, and Dr. Phil is actually sexualizing her himself by saying that there are 'risque' photographs of the girl. There's nothing risque about a young girl in a swimsuit. It's disgusting that he thinks that way.

Firstly I don't like beauty pagents, especially the type that make young children look like adults, I think it is wrong.  But this show felt like bullying to me, and it made me really uncomfortable.  Instead of having a more rational discussion about why the website owner chose to put something disgusting on his website, and what the mother should be doing to protect her daughter so that she isn't exposed to creeps - it just felt like a huge bullying session, with EVERYONE ganging up on the pagent mom.  So why did he chose to use such awful bullying tacits on this particular show, when I have seen him behave more gently with people I just wanted to slap in the past.  I didn't like Mr Sleeze website owner either, and the fact Dr Phil was all palsy with him made me cringe.

I totally agree with you. 

It's like Dr Phil expects Lori to accept her daughter should be the poster child to be used as an example of what happens when sexual deviants get their hands on photos of children.

Of course Lori is not going to accept that, and why shouldn't she.

By Dr Phils reasoning, and that scummy website owners, it's like saying if an attractive women wears a bikini she should accept any harrasment or groping that may come her way.

THE MOTHER IS DOING IT TOO.  


THE MOTHER STARTED THE WHOLE THING


THE POLICE CAN'T CONTROL HER EITHER AND THEY CAN'T CONTROL ANYONE ELSE BECAUSE THEY ARE GETTING THE PICTURES OFF THE MOTHER'S WEBSITE

DO YOU THINK THE MOTHER SHOULD BE IN JAIL FOR POSTING THE PICTURES ON HER FACEBOOK?

Shame on you Dr Phil!! I want to be clear - I don't agree with pageants at all. Defending & supporting this shady website creator Nick for what he did is so reprehensible. You have gone down in my estimation. All this mother may have done that was irresponsible was so overshadowed by Nick & Dr. Phils attitude. Nick aka dirty.com .to be expected! Dr. Phil I am shocked by your attitude. You are in a position of power & influence & have a public platform under your control. Yet you endorsed the right of Nick & dirty.com (the name says it all) to post commentary & image of a sick deed of this man against a child! You should take your own advice & sit & watch the first 1/2 hour of this show - "till you get it!".

i just watched this show on youtube as i live in the uk' I think the mother is to blame for putting her kids in the spotlight if you can get photos of her on facebook it is easy for a man to download them for there use if you get my meaning. I think that the kids don't get much of a say and it more down to make the mother fill good and she is not thinking of her kids safty but she is the sort of person who would blame other people than take a look at her own life. what say dose the father get not much by the look of things i love your shows Dr Phil

Poorly treated? She is responsible for the whole thing but won't admit it because she needs to live vicariously through her poor child. With your attitude, I hope you're not a mother; you sound as clueless as she does.

So many of you are missing the point as much as the mother: it was the mother's responsibility that the picture showed up on the site, and the provocative poses this "mother" (and I use the term loosely) has on her own website and facebook page could end up on even worse sites.
