After all their hard work, the latest Dr. Phil Family receives some surprises from Dr. Phil! He informs Melissa that everything she needs to get her life back on track is headed her way: a complete health evaluation, personal trainer, nutritionist, and food service delivered to her door. In addition, she’ll receive help for her depression and be connected with a developmental disabilities specialist for her autistic son. But it all comes with a condition: Melissa and Randy need to heal their toxic relationship. Then, a talk with Myra and Gene leads to a tearful apology. And, will a one-on-one with Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, help Myra see that she deserves to be treated with dignity and respect? Will Myra set some standards in her broken marriage? Will there even be a marriage to speak of when they get home? Dr. Phil has some strong words for Gene. Next, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity pits brother against brother as Edwin and Eugene audition for a Hollywood talent agent and a casting director. Don’t miss the surprising twist when they get a call from the judges. Then, it’s time to switch gears – literally! Since Myra and Melissa never learned to drive, Dr. Phil sets them up with a driving lesson so they can become more independent. And you won’t believe the prize in store for the women if they pass their driver’s test! Dr. Phil sits down with the entire family one last time. Will they use the tools he gave them to build healthier relationships? Talk about the show here.


Find out what happened on the show.

Help for Randy

Dr Phil, Did you offer any help for Randy? - Or, did I miss that part?  He definitely needs help, which I am sure of which you are well aware.....Thanks, dellintulsa

Hubby needs to get real...........Horrah for the rest of the family.......

I think the Hubby is such a liar and fake.........................He wasnt crying for real  and I think he is a big ball of gas...........The "I didnt know................"  line of bull............PLEASE.....................This is such a big NO.....NO (the cheating) there are actually laws against it.  

 

I think he needs to get lost.  MOM I think you are better off without him.  I think you can find a healthier and better relationship that is not so Toxic.  Start with yourself.........Healing and becoming the person you want to be.........then if you choose another relationship start with a single man first...................There are relationships out there that are fun.........exciting..........fullfilling for all..............that are healthy. 

 

Healthy doesnt mean boring............

 

Iam not for divorce but Iam quite sure he is not real...in his pledges.  I think you have allowed him to have too much of your life already. 

 

Melissa.............I know you love your son.........NOW Love yourself enough to feel better and put your all into youe workouts and self reflecting. You will be a better person and mother.  Do find a good support group.

 

Brothers.........wherever life leads you take life by the reins and stop competing with one another and be the best you can be personally.  

 

Everyone.........Enjoy that new car. The life and future you have to come.......................

 

The thing that keeps ringing in my ears is Dr.Phils saying........"Neve invest more of yourself in a relationship than you can afford to loose."

Quote From: latinamami

 Why is Edwin crying all the time?? It's unbearable. It's okay for people to cry ocassionally but jeez, MAN UP will you?
first off not to come off rude, but u dont even know me or what me or my family has gone thru all these years. u live a year in my shoes and then u can understand why i am an emotional wreck. i had a kid at 17 as well as my sis. my parents fought in front of us for as long as i can remember. i was goin to school for musical theater and i had to just throw it all away b/c of other issues concerning my daugher and her mother. that issue wasnt even touched on. let someone hand u an opporunity like that and see how u handle it. it was a shock to me and a blessin. i'm finally back on track with my dream that i'd like to make a career. and then with my sis...i worry about her and i love her. i dont want her to get to the point that she cant walk anywhere. i just try to be there the best way that i can and when i feel like it's out of myhands to help, it makes me upset. i've always been an emotional person. if there's more u would like to know so that u could understand, plz by all means reply back. again i dont mean to come off rude. hope to hear from you.

ABUSE IS A DEAL BREAKER!!

Gene is never going to change.  I lived with a man like this.  This guy has been fake crying all week...no wonder Myra just rolls her eyes at him!!  She is at the stage where she no longer gives a sh*t!  Myra you can find a real man, who is smart, good looking, and intelligent!  Kick this baby boy to the curb before someone really gets injured.  I know I want to slug him and I am on my couch!!

Randy???

Why does it seem like Randy always sits on the couch with his arm around Edwin? He doesn't seem to have any interest in comforting Melissa, but he is always right there hugging and comforting Edwin. Is something going on there? Just wondering if anyone else noticed.

re supporting Melissa

Quote From: meeko_350

Melissa, I totally understand how you feel.  My daughter is 9 and has down syndrome and autism.  She is in school, but our public school sucks.  She was in private school for a year but was kicked out.  Her being in school is only a temporary relief.  After being home from school for an hour, I am mentally drained.  And now she is out for the summer so I feel like I'm going crazy!  Many days are spent crying because I've tried everything to no avail.  Nobody understands unless they are going through it...not even grandparents.  The only people to understand are those who are around an autistic child 24/7.  So lady, just because your granddaughter is doing well and has found a new career, you probably don't know that deep down the only reason she searched for a new career is because she was going crazy and had to get away.  Have you ever thought of that?  Sometimes I feel like my daughter would be better off without me because she acts like she hates me most of the time.  I wish people understood.  And it isn't because I want them to feel sorry for me.  But people just don't understand why I don't want to take my daughter to birthday parties and get-togethers that we get invited to.  It is more trouble than it is worth and is very embarrassing when you can't control your own child.  So we usually just stay home and it is very isolating.  Good luck to you Melissa!! 
I'm with you on that one. My  step sister has a daugther with a sereve disabitly and I don't know how she does it. My hat's off to you.

Judging from the sparse messages regarding this show, it seems evident that most people didn't bother to tune in.  I only taped the last half of the last show.  Just can't take any more of this family.  Yes, I sure did notice.  VERY strange about Randy and Edwin in such close contact for lengthy periods of time.  Edwin -- it's time to cut the cord with Mommy!  Dry those tears -- you're a big boy now whether you want to be or not.  Why did Melissa swaddle herself with a huge afghan on more than one occasion?  At one point during the third show, I swear I saw Myra fanning one of her sons while Melissa was literally wrapped up from head to toe like she was freezing!!??  Incidentally, I think it's evident that Melissa is lazy since her house was found to be extremely dirty and also because she found excuses on numerous occasions not to help with cooking, cleaning up, etc.  She wanted to read and eat, eat, eat.  Melissa, you can't "excuse" your way through your life.  Get a grip.  Enough with the moaning and crying.  It's just totally off the wall at this point.  I question the value of the house period.  Everyone who's there knows there are cameras just about everywhere.  You cannot tell me they're not reacting to those cameras and emoting for all they're worth.  And, I just want to say that if I hear "Are you kidding me?" one more time, I will need counseling!

I definitely noticed that right away.  The help Dr. Phil offered for Melissa and her child did not include Randy.  Interesting!  I think Randy has some secrets that the family is aware of, but not saying on this show.

DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA!

This is the first time I have had to turn OFF the Dr. Phil show.  This is the most dramatic family I have ever seen!  Are you kidding me??  They aren't even "kind of" normal.  I don't know how Dr. Phil is going to fix them.  They are a total mess and they each want to be the drama queen/king starting with the Dad, then Mom.  I can't stand to watch them.  I'm so glad this family isn't mine!

I was freezing. The heating was all wonky and didn't work all that great and mornings were freezing. My house wasn't dirty and I am not lazy. Only those who have special needs children could possibly understand and my mother prefers to do things on her own, I would have been in the way. Watching the entire show, you might have picked up an that.
