They say she drinks excessively, has choked them and has even tried to take her own life. Can Dr. Phil get to the root of the real problem in this tumultuous household?

Beka details the incident with her teenage daughter, Arielle, that left her stabbed just inches from her heart. Then, Beka says her 15-year-old identical twins, Abby and Alyssa, are evil and she fears they may kill her. The twins tell a very different story. They say it's Beka who is violent, and they have the markings to prove it. And, Dr. Phil asks Beka if her drinking problem could be at the foundation of the family's issues.“They are awful kids. I see evil in Abby and Alyssa’s eyes. When they are angry or upset, their eyes darken."
