Imagine spending $25,000 in one weekend while you’re $80,000 in debt. That’s what Michael’s shopaholic wife, Bridgette, did and her excessive spending is ruining their marriage and family. Dr. Phil discovered that her behavior was just a symptom of a much larger problem. When the couple last appeared on the show, Bridgette revealed a painful secret and the conflict got pretty heated. Dr. Phil sent them home with a camera to record their candid thoughts, but their behavior might surprise you. Then, find out why Bridgette’s children called her a liar, and what sent Michael and Bridgette out of the house in the middle of the night. Can this family in crisis move past the pain and rebuild their lives? Share your thoughts.

 

Find out what happened on the show.

She needs to smile!

With all the shopping and spending, surely the mom of this family has SOMETHING to smile about! Her face would crack if she so much as grinned. No wonder dad works all the time, and the kids are going wild. Her doctor husband needs to tell her it takes a whole lot more muscles to frown than it does to smile!

Maybe it's just me...

But I think that girls & women don't care about anyone but themselves when it comes to something like this. No wonder a lot of men get used by a lot of women these days, and also being hurt, and being penniless, because they fail to see what they're really capable of. I wonder why men like Michael allows his wife to use him & to spend up all of his money. She doesn't really love him or care about him, as she admitted that the first time that they appeared on the show. She's just using him!

This is like, their 4th appearance on the show now. Why don't they just split up from each other?
 Is this really their 4th time on or is this a rerun like today's show was?

I've been thinking of that myself. But it appears that it's probably not a rerun. Let me run this down for you, just in case... 

  

11/04/05: A Shopping Intervention(Their 1st appearance) 

1/26/06: Shopping Intervention: The Aftermath(Their 2nd appearance) 

2/9/06: Family Secrets, Family Lies(Their 3rd appearance) 

3/9/06(Which is Tomorrow): Family Chaos(Their 4th appearance) 

  

I thought that the summaries looked quite familar, but I checked it out again, & again, & it doesn't seem to be a rerun.

Me too

Quote From: misshappy

Hey I think they are a "family in crisis"  One of Dr. Phils families, and I am happy to see whats changed, and what help they have gotten.

  

Hi, 

  

I agree. 

  

I am looking forward to seeing this show and appreciate Dr. Phil's commitment to them. 

  

I would also be interested in what has happened with Brad and 'Sarah' -- "Torn Between Two Lovers" -- and see how that has worked out.  (Shows 493 and 517) 

  

PS 

  

If I might suggest to future posters: 

  

Huge blocks of solid text are extremely difficult to read.  :)

Obviously you haven't been watching any previous shows that show the husband abusing the HELL out of the whole family.  I guess I would spend his money in a situation like that if he were abusing all of the family.  Watch all the shows so you can see whats really happening with this family.  Like Dr. Phil said her spending is a "SYMPTOM OF A PROBLEM"  and it seems to me like the main problem is the HUSBAND and his MOUTH.

bridgette, bridgette, bridgette

 i never judge the people on dr. phil because they are so brave to come on the show and expose so many painful and embarrassing things.  but, this woman is driving me crazy.  how did she get the idea that all she needs to do is sit back and hugs and kisses and good feelings will just come to her.  she has a beautiful home, so much leisure time -- think of all the quilts and gardens and knitting and breadmaking and letter writing and volunteer work -- ay yi yi.  i really think bridgette needs to get out and get a job, just a little one to start.  she'll see how most of us live, struggling to fit everything in, make everything work, and figure out how to pay for it.  i know i'm coming down hard on her, but geez woman.  get some pep in your voice and use that wardrobe!

They are losing their house and she bought a $2,400.00 doggie and new outfits for it? I can be sympathetic with some people's problems but they don't seem to even be trying.
