A Brother's Concerns
Andre says his sister, Valerie, isn't just a gold digger — she's a "platinum digger" who goes after men with money and power, especially professional athletes. He says Valerie "changes men like she changes shoes," and he's worried she's going to get herself in serious trouble. "Rich guys don't handle rejection very well," Andre says. "On maybe a dozen occasions, I’ve gotten calls saying she’s stranded, her tires have been slashed, that she was punched in the stomach so hard she couldn't walk upright," he claims. "I'm terrified for my sister."
Valerie admits she has made some bad dating decisions but insists she's fine and Andre needs to butt out of her business. She says she has a talent for "manipulating the situation" — which has brought her money, jewelry, lavish trips and luxury cars — but says she's not a gold digger. "I'm a goal
digger — G-O-A-L," Valerie says. "I would describe the relationships I have with the men in my life as one big chess match, and I'll always be the one who yells checkmate."
"Do you manipulate men?" Valerie explains the difference between a gold digger and a goal digger.
Emotions run high between Valerie and Andre. "When do you come to my rescue?"
Prior to appearing on the show, Valerie demonstrated her abilities at a bar — with Dr. Phil cameras in tow. Hear from two men she met — what did they think of her?
