          Dr. Phil To Guest On Fiancée’s Massive Spending: ‘You’re Enabling Her’


          April 18, 2018

          Arynn says she loves the adrenaline rush she gets whenever she swipes a credit card. She admits to spending up to $4,000 a month on clothes, makeup, and other non-essentials, and claims it’s partially her fiancé, Chandler’s, fault because there have been times when he doesn’t pay her enough attention.

          “If this is the way things are going to go, I can’t afford the type of attention she wants,” says Chandler. He claims Arynn’s spending habits have put them more than $60,000 in debt.

          “What you have to recognize here is that you’re treating yourself for something, and in my opinion, just from what I know, this is an escapism for you,” Dr. Phil tells Arynn, adding, “And your challenge is to figure out what it is you’re running from.”

          To Chandler, he says, “You’re enabling her, and it’s not helping her at all.” Tune in to Wednesday’s episode when Dr. Phil reveals the top five reasons people turn to “retail therapy.”
