          ‘I Didn’t Think They’d Be Offended,’ Says Guest Of Dr. Phil About Her Unusual Interactions with Staff


          November 4, 2016

          Since her husband Nick died, Alyssa’s friends and family say she’s been “spiraling out of control.” They claim she’s been drinking and driving, neglecting her kids, staying out all night, bringing home strangers and spending to excess.

          But Alyssa exhibited some unusual behavior even with Dr. Phil staff. When she came to Los Angeles to appear on Dr. Phil, some of the show’s staff began reporting that Alyssa was acting unusually with them, as well.

          In the video above, a staff member for the show says he believes Alyssa may have started drinking alcohol about a half-hour after he picked her up. The staffer says Alyssa’s 11-year-old son was also with her in the vehicle. Later, he says things got “uncomfortable” when he says Alyssa started touching him and trying to massage his neck. “I told her to… pretty much to stop making contact with me.”
