          Dr. Phil To Guest: ‘I Think You Lie When It’s Convenient’


          April 12, 2017

          Stephen admits he has lied to and played mind games with his wife, Karla, during their 38-year marriage.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Compulsive Liar?

          “I’m very superficial. I don’t really want to get heavily involved emotionally with anybody,” Stephen says, adding that he pretends to care and listen but that his mind is usually somewhere else.

          Stephen also claims that he can’t remember much of his life before the age of 21, including that he was reportedly going to marry another woman before Karla and the birth of his five children.

          Dr. Phil weighs in with his thoughts about Stephen’s behavior.

          “I don’t believe what you’re saying,” he tells Stephen. “I think there’s a fair portion of this you might believe. I think you may have deluded yourself to the point that you do believe some of this. I think you lie when it’s convenient. You know how I know that? Because you told me you did. You told me you were a liar.”
