Taylor says growing up, she was a great dancer and was the “one to beat” in dance competitions. She says she even attempted to make it as a professional dancer, moving to Los Angeles when she was 18. However, she says it turned into a “disaster” and her eating disorder was exacerbated. She also claims she then began having flashbacks of her father molesting her as a child – an accusation he vehemently denies.
Taylor’s mother, Jan, says Taylor is her best friend, and she has always supported her daughter’s pursuits. She says she had “no idea” that Taylor had problems with food. She also says she doesn’t know if Taylor’s father molested her -- but if the abuse happened, she wasn’t there for it.

“Your parents describe your childhood as just something out of a novel, just wonderful, rich, nurturing, great childhood,” Dr. Phil says to Taylor. “You describe it as broken, toxic, highly dysfunctional, sad, lonely, jealous, filled with self-hatred, judgment from your father, treated like garbage, hated yourself from the age of 10 -- Did y’all live in the same house?”
“I had no clue,” Jan replies.
“You need to have a clue,” Dr. Phil says to Jan. “You need to tune in here.”
