“My 49-Year-Old Dad is Dating My 23-Year-Old Friend”

Joni claims that Gina used to be one of her besties and that they were inseparable, from spending birthday trips out of town to girls’ nights out, often ending in Gina crashing at Joni’s house. Joni says all that changed when 23-year-old Gina began dating Joni’s 49-year-old father, David, behind her back and giving birth to David’s child. Joni says she feels betrayed by Gina and her father, even going as far as sharing her dislike for her former friend and father’s newfound romance on TikTok. Gina says the picture Joni paints of them being best friends is all a lie, but in any event, Joni needs to accept her relationship with Joni’s father. David says despite his daughter’s disapproval, he is going to continue being in a committed relationship with Gina, but that doesn’t mean he can’t also have a relationship with his daughter.

Mom vs. Sons: Who is Bullying Whom?

Twenty-four-year-old JT and his 20-year-old brother, Jacob, say they’d like to move out of their mom, Alisa’s, home and have independent lives, but they feel bullied by their own mother into staying at home and taking care of her. The young men also say they feel afraid to leave their mom alone because they fear she won’t be able to take care of herself. Alisa claims she was once so close with JT and Jacob, they were like “The Three Musketeers,” but in the past two years, her sons have become “like the devil,” constantly smoking marijuana and disrespecting her. Dr. Phil works to get to the bottom of exactly what is going on in this dysfunctional household. Dr. Phil invites Dr. Hans Breiter to explain to JT and Jacob more about the severe risks of using marijuana, especially for young people with developing brains.

Failure of Justice? Brutal Murders, Claims of Wrongful Conviction

Derek and Nancy Haysom were found brutally murdered late one night in March 1985. It is a fascinating tale that landed a German diplomat’s son, Jens Soering, behind bars for their murder. Soering’s girlfriend at the time, the Haysom’s daughter, Elizabeth, was convicted of accessory to murder. Although Soering did confess to the murders, he recanted just before his 1990 trial. Soering has spent 33 years behind bars until just recently when the state of Virginia granted him parole and extradited him back to Germany. Dr. Phil gets Soering's first American interview. Plus, Dr. Phil hears from Rodney Reed.
