Dr. Phil takes a journey along with his viewers. "Six different women are here for six different reasons," Dr. Phil says. "Usually when people come on the show, I know a lot about them before they get here. But not this time. This time, I'm going to learn about them right along with you. I wanted this to unfold in a natural way, and I wanted to let these women not be defined by an issue they had declared when they came here, but by the issues that organically came up during these discussions. Now, one thing I know for sure is you're going to find yourself in these six stories."
Tensions and raw emotions come to the surface when the Dr. Phil Housewives meet for the very first time! On the surface, Alana, Jennifer, Gloria, Rachael, Michelle and Kimm appear to have it all together " successful careers, good families, comfortable homes " but when Dr. Phil peels away the layers, new revelations and even some life-threatening issues are exposed.
