Rebecca wrote to Dr. Phil for help with her relationship with her boyfriend of two years, Josh. She says Josh is a “controlling narcissist.” She says Josh tries to tell her how to clean, take care of their daughter and maintain a household – and that he often makes her feel like nothing she does is good enough.

Josh says Rebecca has the potential to be a good wife; she just needs to be taught – something he says he is working on with her.
Rebecca claims that last year, she asked Josh to see a therapist, and he responded with “he would rather pay for a hooker.”

In the video above, Josh responds to the statement, “Not in a million years I’d say that, Rebecca. That’s totally false.”
Josh says he’s not opposed to therapy, but, “I don’t want to pay for therapy for something that I think that two grown people should be able to take care of on their own.”
