Dr. Phil offers to help a couple salvage their marriage in what seems to resemble a real-life version of the new Cameron Diaz movie, The Other Woman. Anna says her husband of three years, Pablo, is a cheater. Pablo claims he only strayed once -- but Anna says she has proof that he is lying and is ready to confront him with the evidence: his alleged mistresses, Amanda and Bernice. Pablo insists he has been faithful since his one-time affair and says Anna needs to stop the accusations and trust him -- or else he’s ready for a divorce. Why does he say Anna is to blame for his infidelity? And why, despite her husband’s admission, does Anna say she still wants to fix their marriage? Tensions run high when all three women face Pablo on Dr. Phil’s stage. How will he react? And, what message do Amanda and Bernice have for Pablo? Dr. Phil enlists the help of Bishop T.D. Jakes, author of the new book, Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive, to offer the couple advice for moving forward. Can this marriage be saved? (OAD: 4-29-14)

Find out what happened on the show.

Someone had mentioned in an earlier post that they thought Anna was not completely innocent in this, I agree!  How could you not remember texting other men or sending pictures to other men?  If she were completely innocent then she would have been quick to answer "No" in my opinion.  Pablo had stated that Anna had made him quit a job that he had always wanted and now he resents her for it, understandable, but not a reason to cheat!  By the way I'm pretty sure they said that Anna was from Russia.  Also I thought both of them were good looking, but they definitely have trust issues, for sure!  I kinda got the feeling that Pablo was getting back at Anna and they both seemed to enjoy humiliating one another.  That marriage needs to be over especially after Pablo told Anna more than once that it was over.  I would have gotten right in his face and been like it sure is, see ya in divorce

I dont think this is what is implied here , but Ana radiates a beautiful heart and soul. an innocentness that was obvious in her manner and demonstrated in what she had to say. There is nothing wrong with describing her as beautiful when she obviously is in many ways. lets not assume we know what one person means when using this word. The way ANA carried herself reflects someone who doesnt SEE her own beauty physically and internally this in itself can be described as " Beautiful " an attractive attribute to possess.

was this show for real ! unbelievable. Ana is such a beautiful hearted ,genuine , faithful wife . whats wrong with this man ? what an idiot ! she is much better off without him and his unfaithful ways , i hope she has an STD test , as well as finding self confidence that will eventually lead her to being ready to be treated with the respect and dignity she rightly deserves.

I would love to meet this woman (Anna), if/when she becomes single. She seems very genuine. Hard to find these days.

Yeahf, he did. I agree with what  you said in your post. However,  I also believe that he got what he deserved. You can't get much lower than proposing to another woman, while you're still married, using your WIFE'S engagement ring. This guy says he wants a perfect woman for a wife. Good luck, jerk. First of all, there's no such thing. NOBODY is perfect. Secondly, he doesn't deserve someone even close to perfect. He, himself is about as far away from perfect as any person can get. She could throw a dart in a bar and find someone more loyal than him, I'm sure. He really needs to grow up and realize that there are more people in this world besides himself!!!

Forgot to add this with my first comment.  It was very apparent that Pablo didn't really know what was going to be disclosed on that show.  He was very uncomfortable and I'm surprised that he didn't walk off!

They have no marriage and I don't think he is going to change.  He has a beautiful wife and he's still looking for other women.  He said he's looking for the perfect woman.  Well, I've got news for him -- there are NO perfect women and he certainly not a perfect man.  That's pretty balsy to propose to another women and use your present wife's wedding ring.  Wouldn't it have been better to take the beautiful wife he's married to on a cruise?   He is a JERK! 

You could have done better than T.D. Jakes, also.  Contact Robert Morrison of Dallas, TX.  He is senior pastor of a Mega church there and could really help this couple if anyone could.

Dr Phil, this time I lost it with you.  Do you never feel there are grounds for Divorce.  You never mentioned to Pablo, he could bring home a disease, warts, STD, Herpes, Aids, etc., etc. to his loving, trusting wife.  OMG, how many women have divorced and then found the man of their dreams, I sure did.  Was married to my Best Friend for 35 years and lost him to Cancer last year.  Please, please there are good reason for divorce and Pablo, sure proved that.  My 2nd husband was great to me and my two sons, would never had those wonderful 35 years if I had not gotten fed up.  My #1 died of cirrhois at age 49 after I had spent 3 years with counseling to help him.  Had to finally help myself and my sons.  You are wrong Dr. Phil, Divorce is not a dirty word.
