(Original Air Date: 02/06/07) An intensive workshop continues in The Dr. Phil House as three wives turn their husbands in to Man Camp in a last-ditch effort to save their marriages. After Scott refuses to clean up a mess in the house, he has an angry discussion with Dr. Phil and storms out. Can his wife, Tara, convince him to give the experience another shot for the sake of his marriage and his family? Then, John and Nic roll up their sleeves and begin to clean the house, while their wives secretly watch in amazement. Will they have a new appreciation for what their better halves do on a daily basis? Plus, Dr. Phil sits down with Nic and Amanda. What did they do to nearly get kicked out of The Dr. Phil House? And will Amanda agree to bring in the man she’s been having an affair with, so she can tell him in front of Dr. Phil that it’s over, once and for all? Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

Man Camp

First of all I would like to applaud all of these ladies and men, it takes alot of courage to air out your issues on national tv. From reading the message board this seems to be very beneficial to alot of women who relate. I wish you all only the best of luck in making your marriages work.

 

However, like many others on this board I do have my own opinions and do feel compelled to write. Tara, I think you are very strong to have put up with all the anger that you endure. I feel your sincerety in trying to make your marriage work. I don't see Scott is as sincere in his efforts, for your sake, I hope he is. He appeared happy and validated when Dr. Phil shifted his focus off of him and onto you, not saying you haven't any faults, we all do, just seems as though he is spending so much effort in defending himself, rather then focusing on fixing whats broken. You seem to spend alot of time defending him, that frustrates me. He seems to be doing nothing but defending himself and attacking you.

     Cherie and John.... Wow! Although we havent seen as much of these two just yet.. I find it un-belivable that this man would find it funny and ok to lower your self-esteem to raise his own. I hope that he gets the wake-up call that he truly needs.

     Amanda and Nic... I don't feel what you do for a living is so horrible, although I don't think that was a healthy occupation for an already troubled relationship, I can sympthise with the fact that you were looking for attention that you didn't seem to be getting at home. It disturbs me that in all of your personal interviews that you always end with you don't think it's going to work, because with that attitude, it won't. It has to be both of you looking to salvage the relationship all or nothing.

    I wish you all find happiness wherever that may lead you... Good luck!

I say you send those 3 guys to my house for 2 weeks! You wanna yell at someone try yelling at me u little B***h! And for the old guy who thinks he's better than all women and we are just stupid B***h's and you slap your wife... come try and slap me! I would put you 6 feet under you mamma's boy!  And the last guy who says," I wish you had aborted the kids"....the best part of you ran down your mom's leg! Maybe they should have aborted you!

 

What gives you 3 guys the right to treat any human being like that? And these women are the people you love most in life?

 

For the 3 wives....pack your stuff, grab your kids and leave! Do it today. Walk away from those men and never look back! Your husbands have serious mental issues and no amount of counciling will ever fix them.  You 3 women have wasted to much of your lives in those marriages already! Don't waste 1 more second.  You 3 could be so happy and find men who would love you more than you could ever imagine. No one deserves to be treated the way I have watched these men treat you. It just makes me sick and pisses me off beyond belief!!!

 

And one last thing for the guys on the show...you ever hear of the movie,"The Burning Bed"?  In case you did not know that movie is based on a true story. I think you 3 guys should get together and watch it. People can take only so much crap from someone they love until they just snap!  You guys are playing a very dangerous game with your wives. You might want to open your eyes before your the main character in that movie.

 

Or better yet, why don't you guys try treating a stranger the way you treat your wives...I can promise you this...someone would put you the hospital if you even tried have that crap with them! But I guess that's what makes you cowards...because deep down you know a stranger would hurt you if you tried to bully them the way you do your wives. Shame on all 3 of you men! You guys are the reason men sometimes get a bad name.

OMFG! YOU! MY LADY COULDN'T HAVE PUT IT INTO ANY BETTER WORDS.! I Should of left mine along time ago. Or should have sent him to you for Husband Swap ,lol. I just love your Quote, info and tell it like it is style witch my family hates about me. Point's finger's, Blame game, not taking responsibility for thier own actions. I was just someone he could spew his volitile words to. Worse part is Child. Dad should divorced me, he never got sex. She is 25 an Daddy used her to complain an explain his cheating ways as empathy talking to another woman out side the marriage. I just need to find myself now after putting so much energy into my marriage & family. We need to as Woman teach our boys better on how to treat woman. Sex is not all of it but for men it is.! If you ain't getting any, look in the mirror and ask Why? It always came back to my fault, always my fault and my child is a parrot of her Dad and some of my family memebers also. I need to let them all go, but my child is the most heartbreaking, but nothing i could say would want to say to change her mind about me. Must not put her Dad down. Karma where are you! I love you girl. Thanks for the uplift while spirit was low.

Love?.....sorry, but there isn't one bit of Love in any of these relationships. If there were, none of them would be at Man Camp....Fact...

Oh C'mon now.  That is a rather drastic statement.  I can tell you for FACT that LOVE played a big role in Amanda and Nic's reason for coming to Man Camp!

Love means different things to different people.

I have, many times in the past, defined love much differently than the couples on the show. And I still do. But, I have come to realize that people love each other in different ways. And it seems to work. I do think that Nic wrote the show because he loves Amanda and wants to work things out. I think John and Cherie love each other but have gotten sidetracked by a lot of other issues. They may be able to work things out, who knows? The other couple have a LOT of work to do. I'm not sure if they will ever be able to get straightened out enough to stay married and raise thier child together. Things were not looking good for them.(IMO)

Love can take many forms and it is different for everybody.   Even though they seem to hate each other sometimes it is the only way some people can show it because they just don't know any other way.... life is a learning experience for everyone and you can never say from an outside view that there isn't love for whatever reasons.  In my marraige there was a point when i actually thought it wouldn't work out. at first I acted as some of those people but then i realized it wasn't helping and confronted him which was against my nature.  I am glad to say it worked out and now I am happier than ever.

Last time I checked TRUE LOVE doesn't HURT and there is only ONE form of LOVE ....period.... I have seen nothing but hurt in these couples. If you TRULY love someone why would you WANT to hurt that person? and don't tell me that that really don't mean to hurt each other because if they didn't they wouldn't respond and or react the way they do towards each other. Love isn't about beating the other person up, it's about LIFTING them up and  I'm just not seeing it.

why was scott such a whiner?

Why did Scott have to be so whiny? 

"Boohoo, I try to look like the singer of Nickelback.  I am mad cuz I have to clean up a dirty kitchen, and I have to do housework, and listen to Dr. Phil, and not be annoying for an hour.  I just can't do it, man"
