TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Betrayed by a spouse or family member?
Jason, a former Reality TV contestant on CMT’s Redneck Island, denied cheating on Jessica until his former co-star, Katie, confessed they had a sexual affair during Jessica’s pregnancy.
Jason had previously accused Jessica of being jealous and manipulative. He’s admitted to calling her names, but denies her allegation that he’s a “deadbeat dad.”
“Do you want a relationship with him going forward?” Dr. Phil asks, offering to set up the former couple with professional help.
“I don’t think it’s possible,” is Jessica’s first response. Then, “Yes, I would be interested.” “Absolutely,” responds Jason. “I’ve denied it forever with her but now I would definitely take it.”
“Let’s give this 90 days and see what happens,” says Dr. Phil. “I think you know, you can split up for a long time and if it doesn’t work out then you can morph that into a co-parenting plan, and you’ve got nothing to lose - and everything to gain by doing what I’m talking about.”
Why does Dr. Phil say he believes Jessica and Jason can repair their relationship? Tune in to Wednesday’s episode.
