Have you ever wondered what happens with Dr. Phil guests when the show is over? Get a sneak peak at some of the most controversial guests when the lights go down and the audience goes home. First up, Mary accused her daughter, Audrey, and son-in-law, Matt, of living in filth and neglecting their children. If you thought what you saw on the show was heated, you don't want to miss the backstage fireworks! Next, Kevin's wife, Shannon, accused him of being an angry bully who terrorized the family. After watching his behavior on home video, did he decide to make a change or stick to his scary behavior? Then, Aubrey turned in her sister, Elise for being an out-of-control, binge-drinker. She often left her 8-year-old son home with her mother while she went out to party. Did she go to rehab like she promised Dr. Phil? And, Terry wanted Dr. Phil to help her partner, Chris, get over his extremely jealous and paranoid ways. Was Chris able to tame the green-eyed monster, or is he still snooping on Terry? Finally, find out if two wives signed postnuptial agreements, if grandparents battling their ex-daughter-in-law were able to see their granddaughter and if an anorexic bride-to-be finally walked down the aisle. Talk about the show here.

Find out what happened on the show.

grandparents rights

Quote From: flthomcat

Our children are BLESSED with two sets of WONDERFUL grandparents. My husband and I have been married (happily) for almost 19 years and our children spend much time with their grandparents.

 

With that said, I do NOT SUPPORT "grandparent's rights." It is the right of the mother and father to decide who will and who will not spend time with THEIR children. By making it mandatory for kids to see their grandparents, the rights of parents would be infringed upon. Who gives anyone, but the parents, the right to decide who spends time with their children?!!!

 

We want (and deserve) to be the ones to decide which people we feel are good influences on our children. And if our parents turned out to be lousy role models, it's OUR DECISION  (and should always be) whether or not they get to see our children.

 

Hopefully no decent parents EVER stop the contact between their children and their grandparents when the grandparents love and care for children. Sadly, there are always exceptions (especially in cases of divorce...when parents get selfish and forget about what is best for the kids). However, that is NO REASON to make a blanket (legal) policy of grandparents having "rights" to see grandchildren.

I agree that grandparents should have the legal right to see their grandchildren only if they are good grandparents and were good parents. So often girls grow up and marry jerks who try to control them and they refuse to let the girls parents have anything to do with them or their children.

I know if anything ever happened to my daughter I would never be able to see my grandchildren unless she put me as their guardian. All three are fathered by illegal immigrants and I know the father would take them out of the country. They have threatened to kidnap them already and take them away.

his name was jeffrey

Quote From: kaykwilts

I think the woman's name was Jennifer. Can't remember the name of the controlling obsessive husband but Dr. Phil did several epiosodes .  I'd like to know if the man is in jail and if Jennifer ever went through with divorcing that pathetic man.
On their last episode, Jeffrey went to jail.  I am so sick of going on the message boards and seeing posts that take his side.  Those people make me want to vommit.

I'd like to see..

I'd like to see an update on the April 6th In-law episode, with Carry & Patty.  We have almost the same situation going on and I'd like to see how therapy has helped them and what that did to resolve (if resolved) the issue.

Kaylee

Quote From: tammy_anne

Good question, I think about that little girl a lot since I watched that show.
Yes, me too. I have a feeling CPS hushed the whole thing up. But I can't imagine Dr Phil would just let it go at that. I sure would like to know the outcome.

Message for DARLENE - Wife of Bobby

OK. THIS is strange.

I believe your estranged husband (Bobby) is the man responsible for one of the strangest experiences of my entire life.

About 12-14 years ago when I was single I believe I met this man through a singles connection for horse-people. 

He was an outdoor guide / outfitter in the northwestern US.  (I'm leaving identifiying information out here).

I was a professional rodeo athlete.

We saw each other's profiles, exchanged pleasantries and then fell in love through the mail.....at least I thought we were in love....this was before email was real big.

We decided we needed to meet as we were talking about the possibilities of a life together.
We decided that I would drive the two solid days across the country to meet him and that he would pay 1/2 of my gas and expenses to come.

I was excited and drove to the beautiful mountains of the northwest and when I got to his place he wasn't home (But a roomate / ranchmate was and he showed me around and said this man would be along in awhile) ... which I thought was strange.

I remember this weekend as if it were yesterday.

When he finally showed up I joked with him and said that he took so long that I had fallen in love with his roomate.  I was being real cute about it but I guess he didn't think it was funny.
After this I think he said only 7-10 WORDS to me in the two and a half days I was there.

We went packing on horseback to a hunting camp with a couple of horses and mules .... silence the whole time.  I got scared in the night because I heard a large "Varmit" in the food tent they had me sleeping in as he slept in a tent with the guys (And I'm not a wimp either - been camping my whole life).  He did NOTHING to comfort me, acknowledge me or anything.
The next morning I demanded that he pack me out of that wilderness and told him that I was leaving.
We rode the several hours home in silence the entire way and I told him I had never felt so decieved in all my life to which he said.....nothing. To top it off he was very reluctant to give me the gas money that he had promised me before i came and at the time I didn't have any funds to spare. He refused to pay for the lodging completely.

I didn't back down....he paid up and I left shaking my head.
It was so illogical that I had to just not think about it as it would never make sense.
I recognize that face as if it were YESTERDAY.

I'm GLAD you're getting out of this situation as this was, as I said, one of the strangest experiences of my life. What a strange man.

How strange your marriage must have been.

I feel like if someone drives across the country to meet you .... if you decided you weren't interested upon meeting them you could still be decent enough to show them a good time.

I'm reasonably attractive and had only said one sentence when he stopped talking so I hardly thing things could have changed so much between the letters and the face to face meeting.

It still makes no sense.

I just wanted you to know you're not alone.
(BTW, I'm very happily married ... going on 10 years. Thank GOODNESS Bobby didn't talk to me that weekend or I could be the one in your shoes getting divorced!)

Wierd.
Best of luck for your future!

I agree.

I couldn't help but think that Jeffrey could be a very dangerous man because of his totally unreasonable obsession with Jennifer. I was (and still am)afraid that this situation could end up in murder. I know,it is hard to believe that people can defend him. But ,that's life, we all look at things differently. And ultimately others have the right to thier opinions just as do we. But thankfully DrP saw Jeffrey for what he is and offered her a way out. I really hope to see a follow-up show someday.

I don't know if my last post will be posted..I had my e-mail address in it.

 

I appreciate your writing your story. I totally understand what a strange experience that was for you.

 

I would never have known about this, if you hadn't posted your experience.

 

I hope you are able to contact me through this messageboard.

 

I am so happy that things worked out for you, and you are now happily married!

 

Thanks again for writing.

What a haunting and unusual situation you were in!  It must have really affected you as you stated "I remember this weekend as if it were yesterday" and "It still makes no sense."  In hindsight, it's a good thing you and Bobby didn't connect.  I'm glad you're happily married now and were able to move on after this weird situation.  Cheers!

07/12 What Happened Next?

However, that is NO REASON to make a blanket (legal) policy of grandparents having "rights" to see grandchildren.

I agree with you, could you imagine if the courts said that little Grace had to see her grandparents because it was the law and there was nothing her Mother could do about it ?

I totally agree, but then I don't put a whole lot of store in the DNA connection, if you are NOT good for my children then it is MY RESPONSIBILITY to protect them from that influence, and it is MY RIGHT.

No decent parents would, at least I would hope not, come between grandparents and grandchildren if the relationship is a positive loving one, I didn't always get along with my in laws, or my own parents for that matter, but neither side was negative to the kids, and so they always saw the kids, that simple, but then I made it clear that there were things I would not put up with ( my son was the second Grandson and my in laws decided to try to play favorites, not happening, and they were told that ).

Grandparents had the chance to raise their children, your children have the RIGHT to raise theirs, I do encourage though if you suspect abuse to contact the authorities.
