          Ted's Family Intervention

          January 12, 2011

          On Tuesday, Dr. Phil sat down with Ted Williams, the homeless man who became a viral video sensation, to ask him the hard questions. The golden-voiced radio announcer revealed that he walked out on his ex-wife, Patti, and their nine children more than 20 years ago. Now, Ted comes face to face with the woman and children he left behind.


          Fighting for Forgiveness

          Patti tells Dr. Phil how she struggled to survive as a single mother when Ted walked out. How does she feel about her ex-husband’s newfound fame and fortune?


          “He got caught up with women, booze and drugs.”


          Life without a Father

          Ted has a tearful reunion with five of his children who share their candid feelings about growing up without a dad. Plus, Dr. Phil instructs Ted and his youngest daughter to participate in an exercise that brings them both to tears.


          Do Ted’s children believe he’s sincere about turning his life around?


          Problems on the Horizon?

          Dr. Phil mentions a disturbing incident that occurred at Ted’s hotel. Will Ted seize his chance for a new life with both hands, or will his dreams of starting over go up in smoke?


          “You set people up for success, or you set them up for failure.”


          The discussion continues. Don’t miss the startling revelation!
