The Real Lives of Desperate Housewives: Holly
Dr. Phil helps seven women to stop living a lie and start revealing the truth.
"I've said that when we get to the end of our lives, and we look back over the span of our life, that we will recognize those few critical moments in time when we made decisions that changed the landscape forever," Dr. Phil tells Holly.

"I knew that this would be big and that there would be no turning back. And I'm ready for that," she says, assuring herself and Dr. Phil that her friends will help keep her honest.

"What are you going to do when you leave here?" Dr. Phil asks.

"I'm going to go home and I'm going to go back to AA," Holly answers. The six other women have already helped her rid her hotel room of alcohol, and all the liquor has been removed from her home.

"What kind of gift do you think that will be to your kids?" Dr. Phil asks.

Crying, Holly says, "It'll be great. I'll be able to be 100 percent me."

Dr. Phil tells her, "The trick to this life is that we don't have to wait until the end of our lives to look back and go, 'Oh man. I now see that when I did that, it wrecked my kids.' You have to know that being here at this moment in time and doing what you are set about doing for your children changes their future."

"I love my kids so much. They're so precious. They're so innocent. I'd do anything for them," Holly says. "I would die for them."

"But the question is, will you live for them?"

"Yes I will."

Dr. Phil reminds her, "You're their rock, their leader, their protector. And if you compromise you, you compromise them ... You're healthy, vibrant, emotionally available, physically available, physiologically available. And they will feel a palpable difference instantly. And that'll feel good."
