          Pepper claims Chris is a compulsive shopper with motorcycles, multiple cars, and an RV, and needs to get his spending under control. “His parents left him quite a bit of money. He spent it frivolously,” she claims.

          “Those are inherited vehicles,” says Chris. “I didn’t pay for those. Why can’t I have an RV?”

          Pepper admits she got tired of Chris spending money on himself, so she got a breast lift and a tummy tuck. She says she spent about $18,000 on her “mommy makeover,” and paid for it on credit.

          Dr. Phil introduces the couple to New York Times best-selling author, Larry Winget. The self-styled “Pitbull of Personal Development” works to help people with spending and shopping issues get their financial lives back on track.
