          An In-Law Ultimatum: “My Beauty Queen Daughter’s Ex-Cop Husband Needs to Get a Job or Get Out of My House!”

          March 18, 2016


          Former Miss Kentucky Latina, Daniela, says she’s desperate to resolve the ongoing feud between her mother, Elina, and her husband, Robert. She says that after 20 years on the police force, an arrest-gone-wrong nearly took Robert’s life, and ever since, he’s been retired, living with severe injuries and fighting debilitating symptoms of PTSD.

          Eight months ago, the couple moved in with Elina and they say it’s been “hell.” Daniela claims Elina is constantly calling Robert “lazy” and “worthless” and encouraging her to divorce him.

          Elina admits she doesn’t understand PTSD, but says she thinks Robert is just making excuses to be unmotivated, and that he needs to step up and take care of his wife and 4-month-old baby. What does Robert say?

          Can Dr. Phil help Elina understand Robert’s condition and create peace in this household?
