Linda claims she was a good mother and provider who gave her children nice clothes, family vacations and sent them to private schools. Her daughter, Emily, says her childhood was full of dysfunction because Linda was living a double life.

By day, Linda says she was a suburban housewife driving her kids to ballet and soccer, but by night, she owned and operated two “massage parlors” that serviced rich and powerful men.

“It took me a few hours to get from mother mode to pimp mode,” she says.

Linda claims that between the two locations, she brought in an average of $30,000 per month. She says she operated a successful business for more than 20 years before being caught up in a “large sting operation” that shut her down for good. She was arrested for promotion of prostitution and racketeering.

“Once I was arrested, my marriage was over,” says Linda. “When I got out of jail, I was totally dependent on Emily.”

Linda claims her relationship with her daughter, Emily, is "great," but Emily says she sees things differently. Can Dr. Phil help?
