Vanessa says she’s “knocking on death’s door.” She says she’s physically and mentally afraid of food, weighs only 90 pounds, and is convinced if she eats most foods she will choke and die. Her husband, Michael, says he’s at his wits’ end because Vanessa is slowly killing herself.

Michael says he wants her to seek help now. Can Dr. Phil help Vanessa before it’s too late?

And who can forget Sexy Vegan? Viewers first met Sexy three months ago when he moonwalked across Dr. Phil’s stage, verbally abused his mother, and disrespected the audience. Dr. Phil was forced to get security to escort Sexy off stage. Today, Sexy is back. Will he apologize for his behavior?

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?
