Marilyn claims her daughter, Anika, is delusional and is “heading toward a psychotic breakdown.” She claims the 31-year-old has exhibited disturbing behavioral issues since she was a child and no doctor has been able to diagnose her.


In the video above, Marilyn describes what she calls one of Anika’s delusions.

“Last night, Anika called me and she said that she was in a cigarette commercial and for me to turn on the TV quickly, because it was going to be on in a few minutes,” Marilyn says. “I said, ‘How did that happen?’ And she goes, ‘Well, the Dr. Phil crew filmed me for a cigarette commercial.’”
