Does your life feel like a fast-paced movie with unbelievable twists and turns? Dr. Phil’s first guest is a woman who knows all about life on the edge. Sharon Osbourne speaks candidly with Dr. Phil about life with Ozzy, her struggle with weight, and her tumultuous journey, which she chronicles in the new autobiography, Extreme. Find out what Sharon did that could have killed her husband, how she handles empty nest blues, and the major cosmetic surgeries she underwent. Then, Tammy and Dan want Dr. Phil to decide if they should throw in the towel on their 17-year marriage. Tammy says Dan cheated on her while she was pregnant, poured a hot pot of spaghetti over her head, and called her every vile name in the book. Dan says it’s Tammy’s fault because she started getting physical with him during their first year of marriage, and now she has no respect for him or their children. It is time to call it quits, or can this couple calm their chaotic relationship? Tell us what you think!

Find out what happened on the show.

HEY

Quote From: hestiabhn

I think Dr.P. has made a lot more mistakes than just idealizing Protective Services. He completely misunderstands the dynamic in this case.

HEY

Quote From: realinmo

This always amazes me......This woman's story is that this all began the day she married!!! That was 17 years ago and of course, 3 innocent children later. She could've annulled this "marriage" the next day and walked away from someone who treated her this way. Please, don't give me the abused women are afraid to leave scenario in this situation. I know well, that scenario.

     17 years ago she had no children .....so what the hell makes a woman stay for even 1 day? In this day and age, why do women still think the only way to be a whole woman is to have a man? Any man? Any treatment? When, tried and true truth is... How in the world could anyone possibly love and care about you, when you don't even love or care about yourself? And, guarenteed, when you accomplish this for yourself, a really good, loving, complete man will find a really good, loving, complete woman.

Does anyone know when they're announcing the winners of the at-home prizes that he gave away on Tuesday? There's nothing on the website about it now so I was wondering if they were just emailing the winners or calling them or something.......

oh, bless your childhood hurts...

Quote From: mamacow2

Oh . . . my . . .gosh!  When I watched the segment w/Sharon Osborne, it was like watching my life except for 2 things:  1)  I didn't have the belly band so I still carry the wt and 2) my child hood was full of incest, and my teen years multiple rapes.  WOW!

 

I'd love to have the belly band, but don't have her $ either!  LOL  But the comfort food and the spending to get my husband's attention, the illnesses, kids as center of life, etc.  all there. 

 

I wished Dr. Phil would have given her detailed help so I (and others like us) could take actives steps.  Can't read his books as they're too emotional and bring up too many childhood hurts.  I keep buying them and tried to read them but end up giving them away to others who need them.

 

Good luck Sharon! prayers being said for you!

I think it's very sweet and lovely of you to pray for Sharon Osborne. I liked her too.

 

What about praying for the healing of YOUR childhood Self too?  Instead of just giving Dr.Phil's books to others in need, ( which is a GOOD thing to do, thank you!!) how about reading them yourself before you give them away?!  Maybe you can read them one page at a time.? :-) Life can get better when we do things one day at a time.   In fact, I've been to free meetings of  'Survivors of Incest  Anonymous' groups (a 12 step fellowship)  which moved me way forward in my life.

 

Good luck  in your life, and many blessings to you!

Quote From: melmelsmom

I cant seem to get the authorities to check out if he lives there or not they said I would have to go back to court. I dont want to go back to court I have joint custody of her I just have this feeling inside me that his new wife adopted her and if she did there both  are going to jail for falsfying information and not notifying me i would never give my parental rights up to them NEVER!  so if you know any body that can help me please tell me to email me.  I have emailed dr phil to see if he will help bring our relationship back on track.  I just want so bad to hug her and tell her that I havent stopped looking for her and I have never stopped loving her! signed a very desparate mother who misses her lovly Daughter.

Quote From: edithschmck

He threw a pan of hot food on her?  That is physical abuse.  He is an abuser and probably always will be.  Time to call it quits in my opinion.

I agree

Quote From: aheidman1

Hard to watch this show because of Tammy & Dan.  In my small summary, I'd say that these two people are actually at the "emotional" age of 12 or 13.  It's sad that they are just flippin' happy to keep things the unfortunate way they are.  The children suffer under their immaturity and selfishness.  They are teaching their children "THIS is the way a so-called NORMAL relationship is".  I suspect their children will either totally depart from them or turn out EXACTLY the way they role-modeled to them.  It truly is time to grow up, shut up, stop mistrusting each other and start a new path in this earthly life Tammy & Dan.  Best wishes.  Angela, Grand Rapids, MI.  P.S.  I feel terribly sorry for your children; you're both selfish.  The truth is hard to hear but worth it.

Agree with you

not what you think

normally I would agree with all of you but since it was me on the show I can tell you its not what you think..we DO NOT do this in front of our children..They were not there for any of this..my husband suggested we have them wittness, and I ofcourse said hell no!!!..they had no idea of what was going on and havent ever known..we have strived for our children to grow and function without including them in our issues....I did not leave my kids every night for hours a day...I left the few times things were heated so we DIDNT fight in front of them..they thought I was at work...Every family in America has issues and we are not the only family..we have had 17 yrs of normal family activity..as far as the physical things they were yrs ago before we had children...no one has been physical in 15 years, the forgot to put that in or even discuss that....things in our marriage took a turn in October and have been rocky ever since...before that we were a normal family with normal issues....my kids are honor roll students, they are in activities outside of school and excel in all of them. ..The spagetti over the head was 15 yrs ago..he has not been physical since and a woman pointed out I gave as good as I got and I did...I never tried to play victom here...I did give as good as I got...15 yrs ago!!

Not Impressed

Quote From: afraid

i hate to say it but had my spouse done that to me i wouldn't be asking Dr Phil what i need to do, about the time those hot noodles hit me i would have RANNNNN with out ever looking back,i mean if he didn't want spaghetti for supper just say so! pregnant or not.
I wasn't impressed with the husband or the wife.  I think they should stay together so they don't end up remarrying and subjecting their idiocy on anyone else.  They both get what they deserve.  This is the first time in watching the show that I really don't care what happens with either of them.  I have no idea why they even bothered to be on the show.  Neither has any interest in anything but the status quo.

12/14 Extreme Lives

Quote From: ceildh1

I agree with you, why would ANYONE bring one child let alone THREE into that mess ?

But here's where I think we'll differ,

I think that woman set back the plight of battered women at least twenty years, hear me out here please,

She gives as good as she gets, and I think BOTH of them get some kind of sadistic pleasure out of making one another as miserable as possible, between the two of them even on stage it became a P****** match, will they get help, try to FIND a counseler who'd take that pair on.

She had was it TWO affairs, and he should just " GET OVER IT", hello what does the good Doc tell the cheating MEN, " it might take a year, it might take ten, but your life is an open book until.....", why didn't he use that on her, oh yeah, because she didn't close her mouth long enough, and to start on his speech like she did......give me a break.

Seems to me these two were made for each other, its just HORRID that three children have to be dragged along for the ride.

I couldn't agree more.  The problem is that the children are probably set in the same mold by now.  I hope not, but it seems probable.  You made two excellent points.  This woman does give abused women a bad image among those who didn't think it through.  I can't see her as an abused woman any more than as an abuser.  Thank you also for the observation about her affairs.  You hit that one well.  I can only imagine the man or men these affairs were with must be suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome!
