What does Nick say happened nine years ago that has driven a wedge between him and his mother? Unbeknownst to Nick, Angie recorded audio of one of Nick’s rants toward her and sent it to Dr. Phil. Who is really at fault? Dr. Phil gets to the heart of this family’s drama and tells them what they must do if they are ever going to have a peaceful, loving family again.
