Marissa says that she grew suspicious of her father, Robert’s, behavior two years ago, so she decided to look through his cell phone. She claims she found text messages from a bounty hunter searching for a woman that Robert, who had been married to Marissa’s mom, Vicki, for 34 years, allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with.

Robert, who was a pastor for 23 years, admitted that he had a relationship with a woman he met on a “call girl” website – and even spent more than $70,000 on her — but claimed it was mostly over the phone and that they only went as far as kissing. He insisted that he was a victim and that he had told his wife and daughter the full truth about his “affair” – but Marissa said she thought there was more to the story.

Marissa said she urged her mother to file for divorce, and turned to Dr. Phil for help. Watch more from their appearance on the show.
