Dr. Phil follows up with a story that millions of viewers found disturbing. Brandon, 25, confessed to having sex with a 15-year-old girl while still married to Emily. Now, he’s involved with another minor, and his wife says she’s had enough. Shortly after the couple arrived home, the story took a violent turn. Emily says that Brandon punched her in the head, gave her a concussion and bruised her arms. She says she didn’t trust Brandon with their 3-year-old daughter, so she filed for a protective order against him. Brandon says Emily is a pathological liar, and she’s using their child as a tool for revenge. First, Dr. Phil talks to Brandon alone. Find out why Brandon says he's a changed man, and why he believes that he’s the victim in all this. Then, Emily tells her side of the story and explains why she issued a warning to the parents of Brandon’s current girlfriend. Plus, Brandon squares off with Emily’s sister, Julie, who says she's fed up with his lies and manipulation. Are her accusations founded, or has Brandon turned his life around? Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

11/28 Divorce Decision

Are parents really THAT out of touch ? Seriously, they have no problem with their minor children sleeping with older married men ?  Yeah, yeah, I know we can't be there 24/7, and if they really want to they will, but if the parents find out, why aren't they doing anything about it ? What is the point of the statutory rape laws, if people aren't going to use them ?

Infidelity is bad enough, but when its with KIDS, then its a deal breaker, was I surprised she stayed, no more than it would shock me that Michelle would stay with Wade, we women have this misguided notion that we can "Love" them enough to fix them, but unless they want to fix themselves it won't happen.

As far as the abuse goes, think I'll reserve comment until I see the show.

When is it a Crime?

Where are these girls' parents?  When is this pedifile going to be charged so he can serve some thinking time about what is wrong with this picture???  Will her ever get it? or As his generation seems to think, it is all about them and their wants?  I am a frustrated 57 year old married mom that has a grandd that is 11 going on 16 and trust me NOBODY better mess with her.  I am tired of generation after generation thinking that children and women are the ground feeders.

Please get it right!

Brandon is many things, But a United States Marine he is not. He was shown wearing an army uniform in every "military" photo on the show! Please get it right. Figure out if he IS a Marine, if he's not, (which i am sure he isn't) Don't give him that title....come on do your research!

I just hope

It seems as if this guy is trying to make his wife feel like she is guilty and crazy.  I been here.  I was married to a marine who was very abusive, mentally and physically.  He was addicted to sex, and porn, and he would do things like cyber sex, join sex sites.  He was always trying to convince me to do threesomes and bisexual activities.  When i got tired of it, and began to mentally seperate myself, he accused me of soo much and said so many crazy mean things, I STARTED to question my own sanity, and begin to think it was all in my head.  He made me think I was crazy, that I was wrong.  I just hope she stays strong and keeps a strong mind and realizes this is not her fault.

Off the streets!

 Why is this guy still roaming the streets?!  What's it gonna take for the police to get involved and get this creep in jail.  Come on people!  We can sit around and talk about what he did on a show or we can get this pedophile off the streets!  Maybe we should wait until he snaps and kills his wife or someone's kid before we do something?

Lying Again?!

Brandon says he was in the Marine Corps but the photos show him in an Army uniform--Marines don't wear berets.  He was also shown in an Army PT (physical training) t-shirt.

 

As a former Marine staff sergeant, I can tell you with ONE HUNDRED PERCENT CERTAINTY that Marines DO NOT wear Army clothes. Not now, not ever.

 

Perhaps he was an Army soldier temporarily assigned to a Marine unit.  He would still wear his Army uniform, complete with that little beret.  Being an Army soldier assigned to the Marines does not make you a Marine--that process starts with Marine Corps boot camp.

 

Dr. Phil staff, you may want to double-check his claims of military service.

I agree maybe they should hang Brandon from the highest tree branch, he seems to be slime, BUT>>>>> listening to this story, I don't beleive Her story AT ALL, I think maybe DR PHIL should look a little deeper at her, as it seems that most things out of her mouth do not seem at all to make the least bit of sense.  It seems instead like a woman on a mission to make a man pay. TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE IT RIGHT.

A so-called Marine?

 This guy who claims to be a Marine, (with all of their strict discipline and traditions), is one sick and sorry bastard.  There's only place on Earth good enough for a pervert like him--San Quentin Prison.  If I were ever fortunate enough to have a daughter, I wouldn't let her near him.  I just wish I were the police officer who could arrest this scum-sucking piece of garbage.

Bless You Dr. Phil for taking this one on....

This guy is one sick individual...He needs major help... He should be registered as a sexually predator, and do some serious jail time... anger management and maybe some legal problems should help him out (hopefully) ...

 

Being the mother of a daughter, I get very upset about what people like him think that they have the right to do this type of thing to other people  and innocent children... How would he feel it some creep like himself did that to his daughter??? (I hope and pray that his daughter will be safe and go on to live a happy and healthy life)...I feel bad for the girls that he sexually molested, and I hope that they get out of there as fast as their legs can carry them... 

 

Being the daughter of a Marine, I know how Marines conduct themselves... My Pop passed away in late August... Up until his death he conducted himself as a Marine, and taught us that the saying is true, "Once a Marine, always a Marine"...  He went through the Korean War, and then went on to train others to help protect our country... he even worked as a Federal Security Guard until he found out about his cancer, and then made the decision to retire 4 months before his passing...

 

Shame on you Brandon, remember that you are supposed to be a man, you are a father, you served in the Marines to PROTECT our country... too bad now our country needs to be protected from you.... and I hope that your parents taught you better... GET HELP!!!

 

Emily, God Bless you and your child.... I hope that all turns out well for you and your daughter... Stay strong and protect your little angel, and keep your family close... they will help you no matter what...

Emily / Brandon

I agree this man is scraping the bottom of the barrell, and should be in jail for a long long time.  BUT...after listening to the show, it also seems like there is something very odd about Emily's story, it sure does not make sense.  I seems like her story is one of a woman on a mission of vengance (can't say I blame her, but), I also don't beleive 2 wrongs make it wright.  Let the law take care of him for what he did with the child, ((THEY WILL LOCK HIM UP).  I think she is lying about the rest to make him pay for hurting her, her story DOES NOT make sense and changed several times lisening to it.  It seems like DR Phil, was so repulsed by Brandon, that he was blinded by the possibility that the rest of Emily's story did not make sense.  Lets ALL pray for the child!
