          Shopping Intervention: The Aftermath

          January 26, 2006

          Mike thought his wife, Bridgette’s, excessive shopping was destroying their marriage. What started as a shopping intervention turned into an intervention with a family in crisis.

          Bridgette Returns 

          Dr. Phil assigned Bridgette the difficult task of returning all of her unused merchandise to the department store.



          Was she able to keep her end of the bargain? 

          Marital Woes

          Bridgette’s shopping was only a symptom of a larger problem. She and Mike both wonder how to get the spark back in their marriage.

          Mike’s Rage 

          Bridgette believes Mike’s screaming and yelling is putting their marriage in jeopardy. She says she’s lived with his anger for most of their 24-year-marriage, and it eats away at her soul.


          Find out about Bridgette’s ultimatum to Mike.

          Like Father, Like Son?

          Mike’s rage may be affecting their three children. Bridgette feels their 21-year-old son, David, is receiving the brunt of the anger, and she feels powerless to stop it. 


          See Dr. Phil’s important message for David.
