Identical 16-year-old twins Taylor and Tricia both say they may only have a few months to live due to their deadly “identical” eating disorders. The twins say in order to continue to stay as thin as possible, they do everything identically the same, including counting the 12 crackers they allow themselves to eat. They say their need to look identical fuels their disease because neither wants to be known as the “fatter twin.” Their mother, Vicky, says she thought her daughters’ dire condition would unite her and the twins’ father, Robert, but says it has done the opposite. Robert says he blames Vicky in large part for their daughters’ eating disorder because he claims it was a result of Vicky having had an affair — which she denies — and “breaking up their marriage.” Robert says he’s embarrassed to be seen in public with the twins because they look like “toothpicks,” and admits he has called them both horrible names out of frustration. Can Dr. Phil get these two parents on the same page in order to save Tricia and Taylor’s lives? Plus, the man Vicky is accused of leaving her marriage for confronts Robert about the way he treats the twins. It’s an emotional Dr. Phil, you cannot miss. (OAD: 10-12-16)
