Alexis, the 30-year-old daughter of Dr. Martin MacNeill -- who was recently convicted in the 2007 murder of his wife, Michele -- speaks out about why she helped prosecutors build a case against him and reacts to the recent Dr. Phil interview with her father’s former mistress, Gypsy Willis. Did her mother suspect that her father was having an affair? Alexis opens up about her parents' relationship in the months before her mother’s death. Prosecutors accused the Utah doctor of coercing his wife into having plastic surgery so that he could heavily medicate her during recovery and drown her in the bathtub. Hear about concerns Alexis says her mother had before undergoing surgery -- did she fear for her safety? And, what does Alexis claim her father did in the days after the surgery that, in hindsight, she feels was a major red flag? Then, Alexis describes the first time she met Gypsy, whom her father introduced as the family’s new nanny -- did she suspect there was something more going on between them? And, hear why Alexis says she believes that Gypsy knows more about her mother's death than she's admitting. Plus, how does Alexis feel about her father? Will she ever speak to him again?

Find out what happened on the show.

Your sister Giselle was rescued by one of your aunts but you have nothing to do with her.  She was used abused and abandoned.  Now she is abandoned by her siblings the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

I have heard of so many morman women murdered by their husbands who then move the other woman in as a nanny. What do they teach boys in the morman church?

Dear Alexis,
I am so sorry for what you have been through. You lost both your mother and your father.  Stand strong and be the woman that your mother raised you to be. Be proud of yourself, knowing that you live life with integrity, honesty and truth on your side.Be kind to all your brothers and sisters. People can take a lot from us, but they can never take our morals, our values and the respect with which we treat others. You have a lot to give.

To the wiccans--wisen up! This is not about YOU; it's about a group of children having their mother murdered by the father and his girlfriend now crying crocodile tears, playing the victim. Arguing about what Dr Phil knows about Wiccan is not relevant to the issue.

I find it hard to believe that there are people who beleive in harmful spells.   I might as well start selling spells to keep poeple safe from spells and trinkets to undo harmful spells.  I know there isn't such a thing as witchcraft, but if people are going to gullilble enough to believe in it, I might as well make some money putting thier simple minds at ease.

She did take steps to protect herself.  She put a stop to her husband giving her meds and had her daughter administer them.  It sounded like she was a very intelligent woman who was doing her best.  Plus, they were Morman.  Divorce is not ok in the Morman church.  She probably felt trapped.  The other thing is, and Dr.  Phil has said this on his show, the most dangerous time for a person is when they are leaving an abusive relationship.  That is the time when the abuser is losing control and the time when most abuse victims are killed.  Therefore, "just leaving" takes a lot of courage and a lot of planning for people.  Unfortunately, in this case he ended up killing her anyway.  He is a slimy guy.

The Long Rede is:

Bide within the Law you must, in perfect Love and perfect Trust.

Live you must and let to live, fairly take and fairly give.

For tread the Circle thrice about to keep unwelcome spirits out.

To bind the spell well every time, let the spell be said in rhyme.

Light of eye and soft of touch, speak you little, listen much.

Honor the Old Ones in deed and name,

let love and light be our guides again.

Deosil go by the waxing moon, chanting out the joyful tune.

Widdershins go when the moon doth wane,

and the werewolf howls by the dread wolfsbane.

When the Lady's moon is new, kiss the hand to Her times two.

When the moon rides at Her peak then your heart's desire seek.

Heed the North winds mighty gale, lock the door and trim the sail.

When the Wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.

When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss you on the mouth.

When the wind whispers from the West, all hearts will find peace and rest.

Nine woods in the Cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.

Birch in the fire goes to represent what the Lady knows.

Oak in the forest towers with might, in the fire it brings the God's

insight. Rowan is a tree of power causing life and magick to flower.

Willows at the waterside stand ready to help us to the Summerland.

Hawthorn is burned to purify and to draw faerie to your eye.

Hazel-the tree of wisdom and learning adds its strength to the bright fire burning.

White are the flowers of Apple tree that brings us fruits of fertility.

Grapes grow upon the vine giving us both joy and wine.

Fir does mark the evergreen to represent immortality seen.

Elder is the Lady's tree burn it not or cursed you'll be.

Four times the Major Sabbats mark in the light and in the dark.

As the old year starts to wane the new begins, it's now Samhain.

When the time for Imbolc shows watch for flowers through the snows.

When the wheel begins to turn soon the Beltane fires will burn.

As the wheel turns to Lamas night power is brought to magick rite.

Four times the Minor Sabbats fall use the Sun to mark them all.

When the wheel has turned to Yule light the log the Horned One rules.

In the spring, when night equals day time for Ostara to come our way.

When the Sun has reached it's height time for Oak and Holly to fight.

Harvesting comes to one and all when the Autumn Equinox does fall.

Heed the flower, bush, and tree by the Lady blessed you'll be.

Where the rippling waters go cast a stone, the truth you'll know.

When you have and hold a need, harken not to others greed.

With a fool no season spend or be counted as his friend.

Merry Meet and Merry Part bright the cheeks and warm the heart.

Mind the Three-fold Laws you should three times bad and three times good.

When misfortune is enow wear the star upon your brow.

Be true in love this you must do unless your love is false to you.

These Eight words the Rede fulfill:

"An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will"

is NOT negative - it ts first commandment is " Do no harm" Wiccan is a religion of reverence, not a misuse of power.. Perhaps these peple are thinking of satanism- which IS harmful.
