Pamela claims she was happily married to her former priest husband, Pete, for 17 years, until he met a massage therapist, Lori, while on a couples retreat.

Pamela says she hired a private investigator and claims to have uncovered an affair between Pete and Lori. Pamela says Pete then “dropped a bomb” when he announced on the phone that he wanted a divorce. Now, Pamela is accusing Pete of abandoning not only her but their two teenage sons, claiming that “Pete loved Lori more,” a claim Pete absolutely denies. And, Pamela and her 18-year-old son say they blame Pete and Lori in part for the death of 15-year-old Peter Jr., who died by suicide. Dr. Phil asks Pete if he missed any important risk factors before his son’s death. Hear Pete’s answer and the audience’s response!
