After six seasons and over 1,000 shows under his belt, Dr. Phil has met many memorable people. Today, he follows up with some of his most-talked-about guests. Rochelle and her husband, John, first met Dr. Phil nine years ago, when she became the poster child for controlling wives. She tracked John's soda intake, told him how to hold utensils and didn't want him to sweat while he slept. You won't believe the new demand Rochelle has for her husband! And, hear her message for all women who criticize her controlling ways. Next, the Dr. Phil staff traveled thousands of miles to the jungles of a third-world country in search of Mollie and Allene, who were taken by their father a year prior. Both girls were returned to their mother. Find out which daughter chose to return to the German Baptist lifestyle with her father and why the other is having a difficult time adjusting to her new way of life. Then, Shawn had earned one million dollars and spent it all. He was in debt almost $750,000 when his fiancée turned him in to Dr. Phil. Did he sell off his prized possessions, and did he and his fiancée finally tie the knot? Plus, 10 years ago, Jo Ann was struggling with the unsolved murder of her 18-year-old daughter. When she met with Dr. Phil during his appearance on Oprah, she revealed her plan to take her life. See how she's doing today and the surprises Dr. Phil has in store for her! Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

Man abuse!!

  If this was the other way around he would be a woman abuser and she would be the victim. Why should she feel like its ok to mentaly abuse this guy? He looked like he was scared to say the wrong thing probably in fear of having extra work added to his list. She needs to get her lazy ass up and turn on and off the light her self, and if she does it reward with a soda.  He needs to get away from that woman before she starts putting needles in his face while he is a sleep. Two things, Crazy and Lazy!!!

I'm I Controlling or Do I have a Right to Be Upset?

My husband and i have been married now for 2 years. He's looked at porn sites since wev'e been together. It never bothered me as much as it did 6 months ago when i found lots of downloads on the thumb usb things. Since then, things changed and i started getting crazy checking everything everyday. The garbage can, the blinds, towels, computer, ...........I can't take it anymore. I know he's not cheating by chatting and all that but i here if you don't let him be a guy and look at the stuff he will go out and see the real thing. He says it's a guy thing that most men look at the stuff. I don't know whether to understand that concept or what. Now, you know what else he's doing while he's looking. He also says it's something with the chemicals in the brain, that it does something for him. I don't like how all this makes me feel.

Anyone else going thrrough this crap.

Angela

I would like to know what happened to one of Dr. Phil's first "memorable" guests -- Angela.  She grew up in the same "small town" in the Midwest that I grew up in.  Anyone???

Can you believe this Rochelle????  She needs to get a gigilo or pool boy, and her husband needs to find someone who really appreciates him.  She is still arrogrant and controlling, and yes it's still called abuse.  I completely agree with your post --  She needs to get up -- and he needs to get some nerve.  Whoops maybe she has em.

Rochelle's Message...

 

Since Rochelle is bent on controlling her poor husband, I can't imagine that a message to her critics would be anything less than an attempt to control what they think as well.  She's going to try to convince everyone that she's changed, when here she has another demand for him. 

 

Rochelle's indentured servant-um- husband doesn't have to put up with an abuser.  He needs to kick her out of the house, take back control, and not even talk to her until she's in psychotherapy/ on pharmacotherapy (preferrably too doped up to care what he does).  I believe in the mantra, "When life hands you lemons (Rochelle), throw them back and demand cookies!" .  He should definitely increase his standards of who is allowed to be in his life.

You know better.....he has you trained to accept whatever bull crap he decides to lay on you, and your instincts are telling you it's not right.

 

Why have you accepted it up to now?  Most men do NOT look at porn.....and as for the "chemicals in the brain"....hmmm...I'm thinking maybe the "chemicals" are probably self-induced! And, by the way, it IS a form of cheating when he's chatting online.....and too often there's a face-to-face hook-up, which these days can be lethal. There's no such thing as "safe" sex....only safer. (Is EVERYONE out there conveniently forgetting about AIDS and other lovely permanant STDs? Some of these people don't have the brains God gave geese! 

 

A good, healthy relationship does not hurt! Your partner should lift you up, not tear down your spirit...and you need to think enough of yourself to put a screeching halt to this nonsense. Your husband will continue to do to you what you allow.

 

You've already said "I do", unfortunately, but go to my website: WWW.NONONSENSEGRAMMYTREE.BLOGSPOT.COM/  and click on "Before You Say I Do" and "Because I Love Him" and perhaps you can get some insight anyway.

I do feel bad for you, but I have never understood why women (and men) expect people to CHANGE once they marry them. It was OK for him to do this prior to your marriage yet now you think he should change? Is that really fair?

 

Of course what he is doing is NOT healthy for him, you or your relationship, but it is a compulsion. And he probably needs help for it. Yelling or fighting won't change things. Marital couseling might help.

 

Yes, the chemicals in his brain do change when he looks at porn. They change when we eat, too. They change when we drink. So what? He CAN break this habit. He has to want to break this habit first. He has to want his marriage and his relationship with you more than he wants the porn.

 

This is a marital problem. It's not just his problem. But until he admits he has a problem and WANTS help, there's not much YOU can do except to get yourself some individual couseling. Good luck to you.

Shy ??

Why is Dr Phil so afraid of this woman ?? Is is quick to jump on any other guest but shys away from her.

Pathetic

Rochelle is an idiot. So to be on TV she insults  the  husband? Act or not I don't find it becoming to go on National TV about the way a loved one looks. If he does not want to partake in botox let him be. If she is so unhappy she could leave, and being so ridiculous as to ask for shoppers for your husband, get a life. I vote he looks fine. I vote Rochelle is not all that, so stop complaining.


Have a super day!!!!
