Michele and her 33-year-old daughter, Stephanie, appeared on Dr. Phil last year because Michele said Stephanie was binge drinking two-to-three boxes of wine per day.

Stephanie went to rehab, followed by a sober living facility. But ever since Michele moved to Texas, she says it has been a complete disaster. Michele claims Stephanie drinks to the point of hallucination and almost set their house on fire. While in the process of speaking with producers about returning to the show, Stephanie got arrested and was put in jail! Stephanie claims it was because Michele falsely accused her of assault. Dr. Phil reexamines what Michele and Stephanie’s missteps were and advises them on how to achieve positive change in their future.
