Her mother, Stephanie, says she recently put Brandi out of her house
after she pulled Stephanie’s hair and slapped her fiancé following a night of drinking.
Brandi, who has had a dozen arrests, two felony convictions, and multiple DUIs admits she sometimes makes poor decisions when she’s been drinking.
“You’re an alcoholic,” Dr. Phil tells her on Thursday’s episode.

a dual diagnosis, and substance treatment center, noting, “It’s not a 28-day patch on addiction or alcoholism.”
“They deal with the addiction. They deal with the psychological issues that go behind that,” he continues.
