“People call me a bad mom because I was unable to control my daughter,” says Barbara Ann, who brought her 13-year-old daughter, Danielle to Dr. Phil in 2016. At the time she said her Danielle was “out of control.”
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is unbelievable drama dividing your family?
Following her visit with Dr. Phil, Danielle was referred to Turn-About Ranch; a residential treatment facility for troubled teens. After four-and-a-half months in the program, Danielle returned home where her mom says some of her old behaviors have already started to return.
Audiences responded to the teenager whose outrageous behaviors and unique way of talking catapulted her into the social media stratosphere after her initial appearance on the show.
On Friday’s episode Dr. Phil talks to Barbara Ann about Danielle’s notoriety, the attention she currently enjoys, and what that could mean for her future. “She can’t really get a lot healthier right now because she’s got this image that she thinks is distinguishing her on the internet,” he says.
He then tells Barbara Ann there’s more help available to her and to Danielle, saying “We want to stay involved.”
