Scammed By an Imposter Posing as Miranda Lambert

Shirley wrote to Dr. Phil because her husband, Dean, thought he was in direct contact with the country singer, Miranda Lambert. Even though he later found out he’s been scammed by multiple “Miranda” scammers, he says his love for Miranda Lambert did not stop. In fact, he’s doubled down, and now, he says he and Shirley are just roommates. They both say they need Dr. Phil’s help because they want to find out what’s going on in Dean’s head before he goes too far down the rabbit hole of his “obsession” with the star.

Dr. Phil takes a closer look at the stories behind these viral videos to find out why the women's buttons were pushed. First, Karen, a mother of a now 17-year-old, says she went on her daughter's Snapchat after she found her daughter’s boyfriend hiding in her closet! Then, Cassandra, a young mother of two, says she began livestreaming on Facebook to vent after she was very upset after a conversation with police officers and her children’s school.

Desperate for Insta-Fame

Twenty-one-year-old Jessy says she is so consumed with finding social media fame, that she spends over 11 hours a day researching, planning, and taping outrageous, sometimes offensive, content just for “likes” and “follows.” She says when her Instagram was temporarily shut down, her career flashed before her eyes, because she believed she was “nothing without her followers.”

Then, Ava, a former guest, returns to the stage to admit that she put on an act to gain followers last season on Dr. Phil. Ava says she didn’t listen to any of Dr. Phil’s advice and had to learn the hard way about the temptations of Insta-Fame.

And, Nastassia, a fitness influencer, also weighs in to share her story on how she found Insta-Fame and success at just 19 years old. Will Jessy take the advice from Ava, Nastassia, or Dr. Phil?
