          Couple Claims Their Daughter Started ‘Acting Irrational’ Following Her Divorce


          May 24, 2017

          “By the time I was 30 I was making well over $100,000 a year. I was married with two beautiful children, and we had built our dream home,” says Amber. “My life looked perfect on the outside, but on the inside, our life was a mess.” Amber says then – she lost everything – her marriage, her kids, and her career.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          Her parents, Vickie and Larry, say after her divorce, Amber hit rock bottom. “She was drinking two bottles of wine per night. She started not coming home and acting irrational,” claims Larry.

          Then, Amber says she got an idea to start a new company in support of divorced women. “I jumped out of bed, and I just wrote down DIVAS: Divorcing Independent Very Able Survivors, and I thought, oh my gosh, somebody needs to lead people to a better way.”

          Vickie says the idea for DIVAS was “perfectly reasonable,” but it was Amber’s “erratic” thinking and behaviors that soon had her and Larry concerned for their daughter’s mental health.

          What do Vickie and Larry claim Amber said to them that prompted them to have her evaluated by mental health professionals? And why does Amber say she’s furious with her parents? Part one of this two-part Dr. Phil airs Wednesday.
