When 32-year-old Kristen is invited to be a guest on Dr. Phil to discuss what her mother, Terese, and sister, Dani, claim is her addiction to alcohol, she participates in the pre-taped production segments and even flies to Los Angeles to appear on the show with her family.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?
The morning her interview with Dr. Phil is scheduled to tape, Kristen says she’s unable to bring herself to come to the studio. “I just can’t seem to muster the courage to go on national television, anxiety has overcome me this morning and rendered me in panic mode,” she texts a Dr.Phil producer. The message continues, “Please don’t hold my mother or sister accountable, they have tried [their] very best.”
It’s reported Kristen has checked out of her hotel at 6:30 a.m., accompanied by her boyfriend.
Terese says she had been hopeful Kristen would show up. She says she’s disappointed - but not surprised - claiming her daughter had attempted to run while they were in line for their flight.
