Aspiring actress, mother of three, and former NBA wife, 34-year-old Brooklin, claims she first tried cocaine at age 15 with her older sister, and hated it. At 22, she says, “I tried heroin and meth together, and I liked it. Particularly heroin.”

Claiming that the first year she did drugs she was completely functional, Brooklin says, “I attended my acting classes; I was modeling, doing really well.”

By the second year, however, she says, she lost control. “At 24, I went to my first rehab, four months. I ended up relapsing three months after I got out.”

Claiming she was clean for nearly three years, Brooklin says she relapsed briefly this past April. Does she say she’s sober now?

Janice claims her daughter, Brooklin, 34, is an “entitled narcissist” who has been to jail, and rehab, multiple times; neglects her three daughters, and has put them in danger due to her past drug use.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

Brooklin, says she feels like she’s a decent mom now, “But for a good 12 years, I was in and out, be it drugs, or completely discontent in my marriage.” She says she’s currently sober, but admits she struggles with being a mother because she had three children while still in her 20s.

“At this point, being a mom does not completely fulfill me. There’s other things that I want to do,” she says.

Once married to an NBA player, Brooklin now says she’s an aspiring actress and model. She claims that instead of her encouraging her, her mother makes her feel like “a monster” modeling lingerie.

“I need the love and support of my mother, and if she’s not going to support me, then I need her to just back off,” she says.

Why does Janice say her daughter needs help before she ends up back in jail, or worse?

“My daughter, Brooke, is an entitled narcissist,” claims Janice.

She claims Brooke, 34, who now goes by Brooklin and says she’s a lingerie model, neglects her three daughters, and has put her kids in danger in the past, due to drug use.

“When Brooke was 20, she came out to L.A. and had her oldest daughter with her,” says Janice. “I came out, and it was obvious that Brooke was on drugs. My granddaughter was not even a year-and-a-half old. I absolutely was determined that my granddaughter was not going to stay with Brooke.”

Then, two years ago, says Janice, Brooklin had a car accident while her youngest child was in the vehicle. “The car was totaled; it was very obvious that my daughter was high on drugs,” she claims. “We gave her an ultimatum: you go to a rehab, or we’re taking you to a homeless shelter.”

Janice claims her daughter has been to rehab at least five times. “My concern with Brooke right now is that I do not think she’s capable of being a good mother,” she says.

But Brooklin claims she’s clean and sober. Why does she say her mother makes her feel “like a monster”?

Woman Claims Her Adult Daughter Is ‘An Entitled Narcissist’

AnnaRose King Says Indie Film ‘Good Enough’ Was Inspired By Her Own Experiences Following Dad, Roger King’s, Death

The late Roger King was an American television syndication executive, creator of King World Productions, and former CEO of CBS, who helped shape the careers of talents like Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Phil McGraw. He passed away in 2007 at age 63.

A decade later, King’s 31-year-old daughter, AnnaRose, is making her own mark in the entertainment world with the recently released indie film Good Enough, which she wrote, produced, directed, and plays a starring role.

Though Good Enough is not a biographical film, the inspiration for it says AnnaRose, came out of the experience she had of wanting to know more about her father – after his death.

“I had an experience after he passed away of a lot of people reaching out and telling me different stories about him,” she tells Dr. Phil, noting that for her, the experience was twofold. “On the one hand, it was amazing stories to hear about him, but then, on the other hand, my time for making more stories with him had ended.”

The comedy also stars Sofiya Akilova, Todd Bartels, Ilana Becker, Becky Yamamoto and Ted Tremper, and features veteran actor and Oscar nominee James Caan in a cameo role.

Though she says she enjoyed both acting in and directing the film, why does AnnaRose say she’s her own worst critic? Tune in to Dr. Phil on Friday.

Good Enough is available for download to rent or purchase on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon, and other streaming platforms.

Referring to her past battles with drug addiction, Cal, who claims he supports Brooklin in her career goals, says, “I think the key thing to understand is that a lot of the same struggles are still going on.”

Pop Group Hanson Opens Up About Life 25 Years After Their Hit MMMBop And The Inspiration Behind Their New Christmas Album

Two decades ago, tweens and teens fell in love with the three fresh-faced brothers of Hanson, when they released their pop hit MMMBop, which sold over 16 million albums. Now, celebrating their 25th anniversary and release of their second Christmas album, “Finally It’s Christmas,” Zac, Taylor and Isaac join Dr. Phil.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

“For parents who are out there who have a kid who wants to make it in the music business, what’s your advice? Dr. Phil asks the brothers. “It’s not easy to make it, and then it’s not as glamorous as it looks.”

“Being a musician, especially being a traveling touring musician which is what you have to do to make a living, is actually surprisingly blue collar work. It’s a very day in, day out wake-up early, go to bed late, do it again,” Isaac says.

“If you get into doing it because you believe you deserve the spotlight or you believe you’re destined to be the biggest star in the world and, like, the chances of that happening is almost none,” Zac adds “But if you get into it because you have an aspiration to sort of heal people through writing songs about life and through sharing sort of your experience with other people that you care about, then you can almost not fail at that.”

Sibling Of Murdered Teen Recalls The Last Words She Said To Her Sister

Indiana teenagers, Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, were best friends who did everything together say their families.

On Feb. 13, 2017, the pair went hiking on a public trail system in a wooded area just east of their hometown of Delphi in Northern Indiana.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Are you involved in a story that has made the headlines?

“When I dropped them off, it was just like any other time I dropped them off to go to the trails,” says Liberty’s sister, Kelsi. “I just told Libby I loved her, and I would see her when I got home.”

That afternoon, Liberty uploaded a photograph to Snapchat showing Abigail walking along the Monon High Bridge. A little over an hour later, says Liberty’s grandmother, Becky Patty. “Her father called to let the girls know he was on his way to pick them up, but she didn’t answer.”

“He got there and called them again, and she did not answer, so he walked down toward the bridge, looking for them,” says Becky. Both girls’ families joined the search, and late that afternoon, police mobilized after being alerted to the girls’ disappearance. Their bodies were found the following day at the bottom of a hill within trail system.

Investigators have not released the manner in which the girls were killed. Ten months later, their murderer’s identity remains a mystery.

Evidence recovered from Liberty’s smartphone includes a grainy image of an unidentified man seemingly following the teens on the trail. She also recorded a short video where a male voice on the recording is heard to say “Down the hill.” Do authorities say they believe this could be the killer’s voice? Tune in to Wednesday’s Dr. Phil.

Ten months after 13-year-old Abigail Williams and 14-year-old Liberty German were murdered while on a hike through a public trail system in northern Indiana, the person responsible for their deaths is still at-large.

When best friends Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14, failed to answer phone calls or show up where Liberty’s father was to pick them up following an afternoon of hiking February 13, Liberty’s family began searching for them. That was a little after 3 p.m., says Liberty’s grandmother, Becky.

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: I’m living a nightmare!

The teenagers still hadn’t been located after 5 p.m., when local authorities were called in to the wooded public trails just east of Delphi, IN to help. The girls’ bodies were found at the bottom of a hill inside the trail system early the next afternoon. Their killer, however, was long gone.

“When you look at the area around there, what’s the most likely way for this person to have gotten away?” Dr. Phil asks Indiana State Police Superintendent Douglass Carter Wednesday’s episode.

“Right now, it would be speculative of us to try and figure out how he got there or where he went after this,” replies Superintendent Carter. “But I certainly hope in my lifetime I can look him in the eyes and ask him that same question.”

The trails, he says, are accessible from multiple entry points in a very rural area of the state.

On the same day the crime occurred, Superintendent Carter says authorities canvassed the city of Delphi for potential witnesses. At least one person who was also on the trails the day that Liberty and Abigail were murdered has stepped forward with a description of a man they claim to have seen leaving the area about the time the girls are said to have disappeared. A composite sketch has been made from that description.

Shortly after the murders, authorities say they recovered a short video recorded on Liberty’s smartphone, wherein a male voice is heard ordering the girls “Down the hill.” Additionally, a grainy image was found on the phone, showing a man on the trail, which Superintendent Carter says could be the man they’re looking for.

“The person we believe to be the killer on the High Bridge has been enhanced as best as it can be enhanced. That’s him,” he says.

Though the image does not offer a clear picture, Superintendent Carter says he believes the man in the photo will be identified. “Someone knows who this person is who caused such evil in a wonderful place.”
