Aileen first appeared on Dr. Phil in 2020, a few months after she was carjacked, held hostage, and witnessed her husband's murder. She was four months pregnant at the time.

“Sharing the story helped tremendously,” says Aileen. “Talking with Dr. Phil, I realized the only thing you can do is just to take things one day at a time.”

On Friday’s episode, “Dr. Phil Changed My Life,” Aileen thanks Dr. Phil and his viewers for their support and gives an update on how she and her daughter, now 2, are doing today.
