Amanda went from top model to bottom of the bottle, according to her sister Kari who emailed Dr. Phil desperately seeking to save her older sister’s life.
Amanda has lived around the world while gracing the covers of top fashion magazines, has had access to the trendiest clubs and dated major league baseball players, but she is now a severe alcoholic. Her mother, Michele, says Amanda has died twice and now lives with a pacemaker because of her drinking. She says she’s at her wits’ end with her daughter and doesn’t want to be around her anymore. Amanda lives with her father, Steve, who both Kari and Michele claim is an enabler who lives like a hoarder and treats Amanda like a little girl. Steve says if it wasn’t for him, Amanda would be homeless. Kari says she wants Dr. Phil to give both Amanda and her father a wake-up call before Amanda dies one last time. TELL DR.
