You may have heard, "If he sounds too good to be true ... he probably is too good to be true." Dr. Phil's guests say they thought they found the perfect husbands, but that what they really found were con men who took their time, their trust — and of course — their money.
Conned by Charisma
When Sandra said, "I do," she thought she was marrying a bachelor she would spend the rest of her life with. Little did she know, he was no bachelor at all. In fact, she was about to become wife number seven.
Wife Number Six
Before he married Sandra, Ed was married to Julie. She says he spent her money on other women while they were married, and he ruined her credit so badly she was forced to file bankruptcy.
The Two Mrs. Hicks
Sandra and Julie are each coping with the situation in extreme ways. They face reality and acknowledge what they must change. Plus, a Dr. Phil producer confronts Ed Hicks.
One Big Lie
Coni says her husband told her lie upon lie and she bought every one of them. Only after they married did she find out the truth.
