Jennifer says she and her husband, Freddie, divorced four months ago, but she claims he is obsessed with her and refuses to let her go. She says he drives past her house repeatedly, watches her through her windows, calls her hundreds of times a week — accusing her of sleeping with other men — and has even snuck into her house to go through her belongings.

Freddie denies all of Jennifer’s allegations and says the only reason she divorced him is because she is abusing prescription pain medication and is not thinking clearly.

Jennifer says her decision to divorce Freddie was made with clarity — and she admits she abuses pain pills, but claims she does so because of Freddie’s behavior. The couple admit their children are caught in the middle of the turmoil. Dr. Phil reads a recent note from their 6-year-old — will it be a wake-up call for both of them?

Then, five siblings open up about the tragic day they lost their mother, police officer Brenda Sexton, who was brutally beaten to death by her boyfriend in August of 2000. Robin McGraw, along with her foundation, When Georgia Smiled, has a surprise in honor of Brenda.

And, three sisters who lost their mother to a horrific act of domestic violence share their mission to empower and educate women.
