Alex was an out-of-control 14-year-old who was stealing, running away, doing drugs and prostituting herself to older men when her family turned her in to Dr. Phil. After a tumultuous stay in The Dr. Phil House, Alex said goodbye to her mother, Kim, her grandmother, Jeanette, and her aunt, Enza, and headed to a therapeutic academy to be in a healthy learning environment. Six weeks have passed since Alex left and her family returned home without her. How has she adjusted to her new structured environment? Have Kim, Jeanette and Enza put aside their judgments and accusations, and come together once and for all? As Kim prepares for her daughter’s return, has she turned around the toxic family environment that contributed to Alex’s unhealthy behavior? Talk about the show here.

Find out what happened on the show.

Aunty Enza

She is going to break her arm patting herself on the back.  Enza should be told to leave those people alone.  I think she would still cause a lot of damage to Alex, by telling her how awful her mother is, and how wonderful Aunty Enza is.  SHE has issues and sooo much anger!

 

I hope Alex stays away from Enza once she goes home, she has nothing positive to offer her.

Enza appears the SAME to me.

All I could hear out of Enza was "I" "I" "I". "I" accomplished what "I" set out to do -get help for Alex. She also said that Kim was trying to take all the "credit" for getting Alex the help.For Enza it is sometimes ALL about Enza. I really think Kim and Jeanette can work things out. Alex seems to be doing so much better. I DID feel kind of sorry for her when she said that Enza hadn't called her and Alex wondered why. I would think the least Enza could do is to write or send a card. She probably doesn't want to do it unless it's taped and aired on the DrPhil show.

So THAT'S what I heard here in SW VA earlier!

she was responsible for getting the child some help, I think I'd have screamed loud enough for Robin and Dr. Phil to have heard, across country. Sheesh. Okay already.
Well, she mentioned it again-I think I heard you scream.

03/26 The Dr. Phil House: Teen Intervention Follow-Up

I think the Aunt should have been left out of the entire Dr. Phil House thing.  Nearly everything she had to say had "I" in there somehow.  "I'm just so happy that I got the help that I knew my niece needed".  Her very presence was pretty distracting and detrimental to the mother/daughter/grandmother getting help.  Dr. Phil's staff should just have politely thanked Enza for the initial contact info and proceeded without her.  I'm glad the mother & grandmother aren't interested in a relationship with her and I hope that the teenaged girl steers clear of her fame-hungry aunt, at least until she's on solid ground.

 

The fact that the aunt didn't contact the girl while she was in therapy (when there were no cameras present) speaks volumes about the kind of person she is... and I'm glad the girl seemed to "get" that fact.

 

I noticed that the girl was much more talkative and self-confident than when she was in the house.  She looked great, I hope she keeps on that path.

Is Enza For Real?

While watching the follow up today I was happy to see that things seemed to be going better for everyone. I as a mother have to agree with Kim that Enza is toxic. It seemed every snippet from her was all about her and what she did to get them there and then to top it off justifying her behavior by saying well if it got us here blah blah blah. AARGH!!! She makes me sick! I would stay way far away from her! And keep my kids even further away! She seems to be very self absorbed. OMG and the shot of her sitting outside drinking the coffee! Be for real Dr. Phil! Who edited that? I was laughin my butt off. She is not miss susie homemaker enjoying the simple pleasures of a cup of coffee. She is nasty. For someone who claims to care about her niece she sure has a way of showing it.

 

Then this is what loses me. How is Enza related to them? Is she the biological father's sister? Where is the real dad? Did I miss that info somehow? Where is he in all this?

 

But anyhooo Dr. Phil you did a good show and the help you gave this family was phenomenal! Good work!

Also what does Robin think of Enza? Just curious???? LOL!!!!

I totally agree with you. I feel that she was trying to make it all about her. Trying to improve her image after the disaster she made of herself during the other episodes.  I hope she stays out of their life.

Quote From: srndpty333

Enza's agenda is to divide mother and daughter...my sister did the same thing to me with my children.  Stems from deep seated anger, hate and jealousy. 

 

Kim needs to be the #1 woman in Alex's life. 

 

Kim's mother is a beautiful soul that needs to let go and start enjoying her own life.

 

Enza has to go.

 

You hit the nail right on the head!  The mother is a beautiful soul.... that's why the aunt is so jealous, because though she's outwardly beautiful, her insides are really very ugly.

Dr. Phil...What are you thinking?

I can't believe Enza really believes she's been helping 14 year old Alex.  Enza thinks she's done a wonderful thing getting Alex the help she needs.  I'd like to suggest  there is a really good chance one of the reasons Alex needs help to begin with is the damage caused by Enza. The graphic rantings by Enza in the house were at times more than I could bear.  Enza seems to have no clue that her so called "help"  is probably a major factor in this young woman's acting out.  I've never seen so much venom poor out of someones mouth who plays "little miss innocent Aunt Enza" while  being such a toxic element in this relationship.  If she were part of my family, or even a casual friend who was delusional to the point of thinking she should be thanked for her role in getting this girl help, she would be escorted out of my life permanently.  Did I miss something?  I don't recall anyone taking her to task and calling her on this repeatedly.  I had to leave the room many times and could hardly watch the house scenes.  Thank you for letting me get this off my chest.  The woman is evil and should never be allowed near that girl again.

 Looks like Alex, her mom and grandmother are headed in the right direction..thanks to Dr. Phil's help.

 

 

On a side note......Enza, you are one hot woman. You single?

annoying mother.......

 

  First of all I want too say that I am so pleased too see that Alex is doing so well in the school that dr. Phil sent her too, that is wonderful.   Something about the mother Kim bothered me through all the interview she kept fixing her hair..  dabbing her eyes as too not mess up her apparence? what's up with that? I found it rather annoying... she seemed more worried about the way she looked then anything else!  

 

 The Grandmother needs an attuide adjustment, she is not very personable at all..... doesn't come across as loving and caring the way a grandmother should..........  Enza needs too remove herself she is a bully nothing more nothing less!
