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.

05/29 A Dr. Phil Family on Fire: House Intervention, Part 4

Quote From: samlab

I found myself wondering why Randy was sitting with his arm around Melissa's brother during the entire discussion.  I realize that the brother was the only one to offer Randy any comfort when he started to cry, but the way they continued to cozy up against each other for the remainder of the show has me wondering what's the story there?  They certainly looked more like a couple than Randy and Melissa, or even Gene and Myra.

 

 

No kidding!! I wondered about that, too. The brother would accept comfort from others when it was offered, but Randy didn't seem to try to solicit comfort from anyone BUT him. If there's anything going on, it's definitely originating from Randy............................

Quote From: rr1227

I am a very calm person, but if you had lived and grown up with my family, you'd be a little off color too.
 Melissa,
Why don't you drive?  You really need to change your life.  I'm glad that Dr.Phil will be helping you to do that.  Grab that opportunity!!! 

It's too bad you had a son at 17, but you did.  You need to grow up, real fast, and give him  the best possible life. 

Had it occured to you before the show that your boyfriend is gay?  He may not be out of the closet, but he certainly appears to be gay.  You need to kick him to the curb, not only because he's gay, but because he's a loser. 

Best wishes to you, and your son.

How does Melissa live?

Quote From: gramatlast

I am just curious - if Melissa (because she has no life) just sits all day, who's paying for all the ho hos, doritos, ice cream, cookies, etc. that she is consuming?  I am trying to keep up with a teenage son's eating, and I know if I was buying him that junk, it would cost big bucks.  Could it be our tax dollars at work?
I can't imagine that anyone else is supporting her, other than all of us.  She made it clear that she doesn't work, and she doesn't live with her parents.

 Why don't Melissa's parents do something about that?  Why are they letting Randy snuggle with their son.  I'd freak if an adult man was doing that with my son. 

How old is the younger brother?  Is he over 18?  If not, there are major problems with Randy putting the moves on him.

I understand Mellisa completely

I too was much like Mellisa. My first son was born with a congenitive heart defect that has left him having 4 open heart surgeries and various other behavioral  problems such as having Autistic tendencys. Needless to say, I could not relate to any of the other mothers. I would go to play groups and have panic attacks over my son turning blue from playing tag and getting picked on by other kids because of his odd behaviors. It gets old having to explain to everyone why your child acts the way they do and why you as a mother seems not to be able to connect with people. It is hard to hear mothers complaining that little Johnny won't eat his peas when your child is constantly in and out of hospitals and having therapy just to learn how to eat! I became so depressed and felt so alone I pretty much locked myself in the house and wouldn't leave. I finaly took care of myself, got into therapy and now I am doing much better. Mellisa just know that anyone can have a healthy baby. God gave you a special child because he new that you would be able to handle him. I have learned more life lessons from raising my son than from anything else. Don't feel sorry for your situation feel blessed for the amayzing journey that God will take you and your son on. Don't give up and remember the both of you are going to inspire many people through your suffering. Oh and by the way, my son is 4 now and he has beneifited greatly from all the therapy that he has recieved. You are both in my prayers!

thank u

Quote From: andie40

I am definately not one to know, as a married person for 48 years, but I don't think their closeness has to indicate  homosexuality.  Myra looks like she comes from European or Latin heritage, and I think it is more common for them to be demonstrative like that.  Just my humble opinion.
couldnt say it better myself. this is edwin. my mom and my family are of puerto rican descent and yes it is customary to be affectionate. we kiss girls on the cheek as a greetin and guys hug. it's jus the way we were raised. i've been pretty amused at the fact that alot of people thinkme and randy are havin a tryst or sumthin. thanks for using logic and ur brain. u are a ok in my book.

Quote From: maceasar

Melissa needs to shut up. I have been doing nothing for 10 years, watching tv up to 17 hours a day but Im not bitching about it. And Im only 20 lbs overweight.

Meliaa,

take care of your son!!!!

people need to leave melissa alone! I was in her postion. I had a baby at 16 and another at 18. I got married 4 weeks after my second and stayed at home with the kids. I was depressed and alone. the only thing there was to do was eat. my husband was a complete jerk. My advice to melissa is get rid of randy!!!! I got rid on my stupid husband and im so much happier! And for anyone to say that melissa needs to take care of her son needs to shut up!! My sons were not autistic and they were so much of a handful! I can't even imagine if they were. Melissa, Dont let people call you lazy! being a mom is more than a full time job! i know exactly how you feel. the whole time i was watching you describe why you gained weight is the same way i feel i did. dont let anyone put you down for that! Being on a diet and taking care of kids dont mix! its hard! Good luck to you and your son!

WELFARE IS FOR THE NEEDY NOT THE GREEDY! Melissas job ismore important than any job anyone else could ever have! im so tired of people thinking stay at home moms are lazy welfare mommas. SOME OF US NEED IT! and just for your info, I PAY JUST AS MANY TAXES AS YOU DO! so dont go and say YOUR tax money goes for the needys welfare. SO DOES MINE. try staying at home with your kids once and then go off and call a Stay at home mom lazy. its much easier to go and sit at a desk for 8 hours a day then to stay at home. and i praise every woman that does it because i know its hard. Melissa, your doing a good job and dont let anyone tell you differently!

 

p.s. I have a crush on the older brother, lol

I do not live alone, my boyfriend works very hard to support all of us, not the state. Because he works so hard he was very rarely home thus leaving me day in and day out alone with my son.

thanks for that and if you know us personally, get in contact with him. He could probably use a friend right now.
