Stacey claims her sister, Courtney, has faked pregnancies and says she is angry that her parents seem to believe her lies because Courtney says she has a mental illness.

Stacey, who lives with Courtney and their parents, claims the entire family must hide cash, jewelry, and all valuables, or Courtney will steal them. Their parents, Mitch and Cathie, agree it’s a huge problem but say they feel trapped. Courtney, who admits she has a history of lying, insists she was pregnant three times and says she wants her family to believe her. Dr. Phil producers investigated Courtney’s story and called one of her ex-boyfriends, who sheds light on her most recent pregnancy. When Dr. Phil reveals the truth behind Courtney’s story, the family is unprepared for Courtney’s reaction.
