          "I Spanked My Wife with a Wooden Spoon, and She Needs to Repent"

          September 22, 2014

          Last October, Kirby made headlines — and spent 13 weeks in jail — after his wife of 26 years, Renee, videotaped him spanking her with a wooden spoon. With a protection order in place preventing Kirby from having any contact with Renee, Dr. Phil speaks to him via satellite.

          Kirby says he wants to save his marriage with his now-estranged wife — if she will just “repent”! Kirby claims Renee abandoned her religious commitment to be a “Proverbs 31” by behaving disrespectfully, and he felt he had no choice but to act as he did. What’s more, Kirby says he believes on the night in question, Renee deliberately set him up. Does he feel any remorse for his actions?

          Dr. Phil doesn’t mince words with this father of five — will his advice make an impact?

          “I told God to fix her, or I’m going to spank her fanny with a paddle.”

          Dr. Phil drills down on Kirby: “You never, ever put your hands on a woman in anger. Ever.”

          “There is no place to run, no place to hide to justify what you did here.”

          Renee caught more than the spanking on tape. See the discipline technique Kirby used with one of his sons. Plus, don’t miss part 2 tomorrow, when Renee tells her side of the story.
