Imagine spending $25,000 in one weekend while you’re $80,000 in debt. That’s what Michael’s shopaholic wife, Bridgette, did and her excessive spending is ruining their marriage and family. Dr. Phil discovered that her behavior was just a symptom of a much larger problem. When the couple last appeared on the show, Bridgette revealed a painful secret and the conflict got pretty heated. Dr. Phil sent them home with a camera to record their candid thoughts, but their behavior might surprise you. Then, find out why Bridgette’s children called her a liar, and what sent Michael and Bridgette out of the house in the middle of the night. Can this family in crisis move past the pain and rebuild their lives? Share your thoughts.


Find out what happened on the show.

Are they kidding?

Thank you for finally saying Dr Phil that the kids are a reflection of the parents.  This family needs to go to church and find out how to live life.  They also need to learn about appreciate what they have, I don't have half what they have and am much happier than they are.

I'm pretty tired of seeing them too!
I think this family is using the Dr. Phil show as a way of publicity.  The mother shows no emotion and acts way out there, but I think she's a real smart cookie who knows how to play the game.  She talks very openly about cutting herself as if she's proud of it and wants everyone to know, like she's looking for attention and this gets her back on the Dr. Phil show each time.  Maybe they're looking for someone to help them with the huge debt they've incurred.  The daughter said it right.."my mom is a drama queen"...

Family Chaos

I give Dr. Phil a lot of credit for continuing to try and help this family that seems at a loss.  I am getting frustrated watching the mother continue to blame her children for so many of their problems!  In a way I wish Dr. Phil would call her out on that more often.  Good luck to the family and Dr. Phil.  Hopefully they can find a way to fix or at least alleviate thier problems.

03/09 Family Chaos

All this show proves is that  1) money doesn't buy happiness 2) our kids are what we put into them and 3)there are some very ungrateful people in this world who will never be truly happy ......and constantly blame everyone else for it when they really need to just look in the mirror to find the problem.

The woman with everything

If Dr Phil  took her to a woman that had nothing ...and let her live in the shoes of someone that really had a problem in life just trying to make a life for her children then maybe she would see that she is the problem..She is so spoiled that it is not even funny...she should look at herself..

Eye Color

Has anyone noticed that Michael's son David has BLUE eyes??  Isn't it impossible for two brown-eyed parents to have a blue-eyed child?  As far as I know it is, so how can David be Michael's child?

Give me a break!

Did I just hear this woman say her kids are too toxic to be around???? Give me a break!   


These two people are in such denial about themselves individually that they can't even see how they have caused their children's obnoxious behavior. 


These unfortunate young people will have tremendous hurdles to overcome from being raised by these two parents.  God help them, I'm not so sure Dr. Phil isn't in over his head on this one.

03/09 Family Chaos

 What is so speical about these idiots?  Does anyone know?  I am so tired of this family being on the show.  I got to the point half way thru the first time they were on that I wanted to scream.  The whinning, the self pity, the spending, I should have it so good.  But the cutting?  I just don't get that at all.  I might be on the wrong page here but they need to take their problems private and if they can't solve them, than divorce and get it over with.

just split up!

If she don't want him I know of someone that really does want him!!! They should'nt be together if they can't get along. My husband's aunt would really like him if she don't want him.. They need to DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!    They really should'nt be together.. GET RID OF HER.......This story is getting old.

Not addicted -- self-indulgent

Heroin is addictive; it changes your brain.  Going to the mall and buying everything you like is not addiction; it's the behavior of a spoiled woman.  Watching porn in front of your kids, talking about suicide in front of your kids, cutting in front of your kids -- not  addiction.  What it is, is terrible, self-centered  behavior of a spoiled b*tch.  Dad should get a divorce and take the kids with him.  I would love to see this woman have to support herself on minimum wage.  


BTW Bridgette -- my hung-up husband isn't affectionate either. Get over it.
