          Hurtful Lies and Shattered Trust

          March 18, 2010

          “I told my girl my dog died to get out of going on a date with her.” “I faked an orgasm and said sex was great when really I just wanted it to be the hell over with.” These are some of the lies members of Dr. Phil’s audience admit they’ve told. Do you ever lie? A recent survey revealed that men lie six times a day, but women only lie three times a day. Dr. Phil gets to the bottom of why people tell tales and how to put an end to the falsehoods. 


          Relationship-Ending Lie

          Erin admits that lying to her ex-husband, Eric, destroyed their marriage and ultimately led to their divorce. Is she ready to be honest, or is she still hiding the truth? And, can this couple rebuild their trust and make their relationship work the second time?


           “I was so angry with her that I couldn’t see straight.”


          Why We Lie 

          Dr. Robert Feldman, author of The Liar in Your Life: The Way to Truthful Relationships, sheds light on why men and women misrepresent the truth. And, Dr. Phil catches Robin in a lie!


          Find out the biggest lies men and women tell.


          It’s Your Turn
          Dr. Phil always asks his guests to bare their souls and tell him the unvarnished truth. Now, it’s his turn.  



          Michelle was engaged to a man she thought was her soul mate. But when she became suspicious of his behavior, she hired a private investigator and found out the truth about him. 


          How can Michelle learn to trust again?
