Jackie emailed Dr. Phil over 660 times because she says ever since her daughter went to college, she can’t see the floor of her house because of the clutter! She says she started recycling scrap metal, and now, it’s turned her home into a “hellhole torture chamber.” Jackie says the last time anyone besides her daughter stepped foot in her house was seven years ago. Jackie says her relationship with her daughter has been strained. Shayla says her mom kicked her out of the house years back, and she’s never been able to discuss why. Will Dr. Phil be able to clear some paths to forgiveness for this mother-daughter duo? Will Jackie be able to dig out from the mess in order to finally make things right with her daughter?

“My Twin Sister Thinks She is Etta James Reincarnated!”

Tamera claims that not only does she look exactly like Etta James, she claims she is Etta James reincarnated! Tamera says the four-time Grammy winner entered her body soon after her death in 2012. Ever since, she claims she’s had visions of Etta James’ life and says she is now ready to restart her music career and show the world that Etta James is back! But Tamera’s mother, Debra, and Tamera’s twin sister, Tia, say Tamera is “delusional” and not in any way Etta James. They say they absolutely refuse to call Tamera “Etta,” which they say has led to the family completely fracturing. Later, Bishop T.D. Jakes, founder of The Potter’s House Church, a non-denominational, multicultural church in Dallas, Texas, joins Dr. Phil to discuss the way we speak and why words matter. Bishop Jakes is also a New York Times bestselling author whose latest book, Don’t Drop the Mic: The Power of Words Can Change the World, is in bookstores and online now.
