Are you experiencing irritation overload with a friend or loved one? Does he or she cause scenes in public and make you the butt of bad jokes? If so, you’re not alone. Angie says her sister, Gwen, is the most annoying person on the planet! She rants, raves and flips the bird to total strangers. She even teaches Angie’s 2-year-old curse words. Gwen says her behavior is funny and thinks Angie needs to lighten up. Watch what happens when Dr. Phil plans an experiment and gives Gwen a taste of her own medicine! Then, remember the lovable loudmouth, Becky? Her daughter, Sara, said she swore like a drunken sailor, and could be heard from miles away. Becky said she was simply opinionated, honest and blunt. Has she been able to keep her big mouth shut since she was on the show? Plus, Taylor and Cassidy say their mom, Suzanne’s, obsession with watching Dr. Phil is driving them nuts! Share your thoughts, join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

I saw myself on the show today!

I saw myself on the show, but it wasn't really me! I am just like the lady that HAS to watch Phil EVERY day. It is the first thing I do after work. The kids were just having a ball teasing me about being just like she is. My hubby just shook his head and said " oh my God, there are other ones just like you!" 


I am a PROUD fan of Phil! the only thing that would make the show better was if he was on during the weekends too!!

Annoying people. Mother and girls

I understand about having a show you like.  We are all allowed our indulgences in my house.  At least I can tape Dr Phil and whiz through the commericials to cut down on time. My husband's hockey habit is much worse because it has to be live...and his buddies need to be fed.  


What I do is tape the show and, if no one is around, I watch it while preparing dinner. If the kids want attention, I leave watching the show until later or I don't watch at all because it is a rerun (a lot of those lately).    


The only problem with what you are doing is that you are plunking your hour of indulgence right after work which is prime family time. Everyone wants to share their day and everyone is home and hungry. Just pick a better time for it and enjoy yourself! " 


Um sorry to disagree but you're at least partially wrong. That isn't "indulgence". It's NECESSITY! When I was working full-time, I had to have a policy of getting an hour to myself before I could really talk to anyone. My job was to work with developmentally disabled adults and while I loved what I did, it was like having "kids" all day. My boss was very exacting and it was like most people's jobs, very stressful. Not to mention the fact that my own kids would call me and ask me to referee over the phone some of the fights they may have gotten into with their siblings.  My mother would also call  way too many times if she happened to be babysitting for me. So, let's see, I had 80 DD Adults, my 5 kids calling me off and on through the day, my boss on my back and my cell phone ringing off the hook on the drive home because I was being asked yet again to referee. If I didn't have my 1 hr. alone, in my room, with my door closed, I would most likely have said something I shouldn't have. I certainly couldn't "vent" at work and it really wouldn't have been fair to my kids to vent at home. That woman's children are old enough to take care of themselves for a while and give their mom some time to herself. I'm not saying she shouldn't make time for them. Of course she should. However, did you notice when Dr. Phil asked them if they would have input if their mom talked to them, they hesitated and begrudgingly one said she would? That's because they're just looking for things to complain about. I have 2 teenagers myself. We talk a lot. I hear about things sometimes I wish I hadn't However, they spend a lot of their time talking on the phone or on the computer IM'ing friends. I just really think those girls are being selfish by not recognizing their mom wants some time alone. It's not too much to ask for quiet. Give her a break! It's not like she's out at clubs every night leaving them alone. When you fly, the attendants tell you in case of emergency, put YOUR mask on before you put your children's on. The same principle applies here. She needs to take care of herself before she can take care of them. I'm assuming that mother was there when those kids had fevers, bad dreams, friends at school who weren't friends anymore, lost teeth, were hungry, thirsty, had accidents and needed to go to the hospital, etc. etc. She deserves an hour or two to herself.

  I agree.  Tell this MOM to tape the show and watch later.  Those girls will not be around forever and they need you now.  Take it from me.  When they off to collage you can watch Dr. Phil everyday. but now give those girls your time. Shirley Choat

You Go Girls

Has anyone ever thought that these girls just want time with their mother? Aren't we all as parents too busy with work, spouses and social activities to spend quality time with our kids? We may make that up with clothes, makeup, cars and other material things, but is that what they really need or want?? Both those teens are welcome to come live with me and my family!!! All they have to do is call Aunt Trese'.XOXOXO

03/21 More Annoying People

Quote From: riverphoto

For the family whom are upset 'cause their hard working mom/wife  wants a little block of time to indulge herself in a TV Show, what are you complaining about? Is this the biggest problem in your life? So much, that you have to contact Dr. Phil??? I am so jealous,  but I do hope you never have any real problems!!!!


       I agree 100%  I do the samething each day, I watch Oprah and then Dr. Phil follows 2 hours a day of tv. I've a daughter.... she knows that is my time, she does her own thing, or watches when she wants....... then we have dinner etc.. and do our nightly routine...... your right if this is there biggest problem I am standing in the jealously line right behind ya!

dr phil obsession..I agree with you

Quote From: frenchie59

I have not been told that my absolute necessity to watch Dr. Phil daily is an obsession but the comments are coming from my family faster and closer together than before. I don't care how they feel. I am 46, mother of four; ages 24, 23, 20 and 19. I also have two grandchildren. I do not work and feel as though I deserve my Dr. Phil hour every day. If they don't like it the ones left at home can hit the road. I worked for years and raised all four of these children and my husband! And I feel sometimes I am raising my grandaughters, too, so I am entitled!!  Ta-Da!!!!
I am a 45 y.o female.  Just stopped working after 25 years.  I deserve my time.  I have paid my dues.  Those girls need to realize that their mother is also a person...not just a working mother, wife, cook, taxi...need I go on.  I thought we mothers, wives etc. have been encouraged to take time for ourselves...if we don't take care of ourselves how are we going to take care of everyone else?  If those girls are watching something that is if interest to them or they want to make sure they hear everyword of something on they not want to "wait til this is over mom",  "I'll do it as soon as this show is over"???? How many times have we parents heard that?

control freak

Quote From: dalave

Oh my gosh!!! I saw myself in poor family.  As I was listening to Michelle's story my eyes welled up with tears, thats me.  I looked at my husband, and said oh my gosh I am a control freak, and he just kind of give me a little smile.  Ok so I am not quite as bad as Michelle,  I don't tell the grocery bagger how to bag my groceries (my mom does though) and my clothes don't need to match my hangers, but all the sweatshirts go together, all the work shirts, ect.  I even have my babies toys seperated into 2 baskets....basket for the smaller toys and one for the bigger that such a big deal.  Everything in my fridge and cupboards is in a certain order....who knew this was a problem!!!!!  After talking about this with my husband with me saying that it is good to have certain things in certain spots in the fridge and the cupboards that way when he or my boy,whos 12, asks where something is I long as its been put back where its supposed to be.  My husband and I have only been married about 2 years and we have had quite a few problems..but like Dr.Phil said how fun are you to live with!!!!  YIKES!!!!  Its just shocking to me I honestly did not see this as a problem.  My husband was joking saying that when he picks up the baby's toys he is going to purposely put them in the wrong basket and my stomach was instantly in knots.  Dr.Phil said he would have some tips on how to deal with this control thing on his website but I haven't found anything yet.  If anyone knows where they are could you please let me know...and if anyone has any advice for me I would be glad to hear from you.  Thanks.

Ms. Rude Thing

Quote From: bella523

Whatever her name is in the pink sweater...Miss. Rude thing. She's just sitting there on TV and laughing for no reason, she looks stupid, in my opinion. I hope she see's that in herself when she gets home and watches the show. Maybe then she will see how horrible her behavior is, and how it effects those around her. 

I have a brother that is just like her & I so am embarassed for the sister, cuz I know what it's like, and it can be  terribly embarassing for me. Granted there are worse things in life, but they bring it on themselves and it's just mean spirited and rude. It's a very selfish behavior to sit in a room filled with others and out of nowhere someone is judging you, ridiculing you and rip on you in front of anyone else ! She needs an intervention on her attitude and lack of social skills.  

To her sister...Good Luck! You have your hands full. 


P.S. My 40 year old brother needs help too, but he will never change! 


I don't  need no HELP, You don't know my sister she is the same way but she was on national tv so she had to make her self like looklike she  was all that & then some 

March 21, 2006, 3:21 pm CST


Need some help. On today's show one of the guest was sitting back in the audience and told Dr. Phil to repeat something he had told her on an earlier show. It was so good that I didn't think I would forget the two words that he used when he was  talking about balancing out.
March 21, 2006, 3:21 pm CST
