          How An Engaged Couple Says Her Twin Sister Is Tearing Apart Their Lives


          May 10, 2018

          McKenzie says she feels caught between her fiancé, Chad, and her identical twin sister, Brittanie. She says that Chad wants her to cut Brittanie out of her life because she’s a drug addict with unpredictable behavior – but McKenzie says she can’t cut off Brittanie because it’s “like losing half of yourself.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

          “He’s in my ear, you know, ‘You need to cut her out. You need to move on with your life and with our family,’” McKenzie tells Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode. “I just can’t seem to let go.”

          “It’s a daily phone call that I dread to even hear the phone ring,” Chad says. “She won’t even talk to Brittanie in the same room as me anymore, because I hear Brittanie’s voice and all’s I hear is, ‘Help me, help me, help me.’ Or, she’s constantly badgering her to do things that McKenzie shouldn’t have to do.”
