          “It’s time we’ve got to start being honest and dealing with this stuff straight up.”


          Erin and Tony Face Off

          Alex’s attorney, Curtis Fallgatter, calls a meeting to discuss a new development in Alex’s custody battle, and emotions rise between Erin and Tony. And, Dr. Phil has a warning for Alex. With custody determinations of her children on the line, will she ask Tony to move out? 


          “There is no question that you are jeopardizing your chances of getting those children back.”


          “I Want to Be the Mommy”

          Erin says she wants Alex to move away from Tony so she can focus on getting her kids back. In fact, she found a small house near hers that she wants Alex to rent.
