Ariyanna claims her childhood was filled with physical and mental abuse from her mother, Cornelia. The young woman claims her mother waterboarded her, made her sleep outside in a tent, and even locked her in the attic for days at a time.
Cornelia admits she disciplined her daughter physically when she misbehaved, but says Ariyanna cannot tell the truth if her life depended on it. She denies locking Ariyanna in the attic – she says it was the bedroom – and that she only poured water on her daughter’s face.

However, Cornelia admits that she lied to her daughter when she dropped her at her father’s house as a teen. Hear what happened in the video above. And, Cornelia said she didn’t want to have kids – does she still agree with that statement?
On Monday’s episode of Dr. Phil, "Locked in the Attic or Lying?" a family member shares her experience living with Cornelia. Plus, a body language expert weighs in. Check local listings to see where you can tune in.
