          ‘I Was Rich And Gorgeous, Now I’m Just Broke And Fat’


          January 12, 2018

          “My husband, Steve and I, had it all,” says Carrie. “We had two beautiful children, who went to the best private schools. We lived in a nice 3,000 square foot home with four bedrooms in an exclusive community just outside New York City.” Carrie says they drove high-end cars, went on lavish vacations and she would spend her days shopping for designer clothes.

          But four years ago, Carrie says her extravagant lifestyle came to a halt when Steve, a successful lawyer who made more than a half-million dollars a year, quit his job to start a legal cannabis business – and she says “everything went away.”

          “In my past, I’ve had some issues with drinking. I’ve been in and out of rehab for alcohol use. I was so upset, I was just drinking our problems away,” Carrie admits. “I feel like my life has completely fallen apart.”

          Steve, who says Carrie “checked out of her desire to be a mother,” has custody of the children.

          Separated from her husband and estranged from her children, Carrie moved in with her parents. “I don’t even recognize myself. I put on at least 150 pounds,” she shares. “I was rich and gorgeous, now I’m just broke and fat. I’m a complete riches to rags story, and I don’t know what to do.”

          On Tuesay’s episode of Dr. Phil, Carrie makes a confession to her family. What does she reveal and how will they react? Check here to see where you can watch.
