Todd and Jessica's marriage had hit rock bottom with restraining orders, physical fights and ugly accusations in front of their three sons. Dr. Phil moved their family into The Dr. Phil House, where he could watch their every move and interaction with each other, and intervene whenever he chose. Within minutes of being under the same roof, Todd and Jessica launched into a marathon fight. Dr. Phil makes his first house call to show the couple how their fighting is affecting the kids. Then, after repeatedly denying that she was having an affair, Jessica has a woman-to-woman talk with a producer. Will she finally come clean? Tell us your thoughts.

Find out what happened on the show.

Hi there.

I am watching Dr. Phil every day. What is happening at Dr.Phil house is crazy. I understand that he is really trying to save marriage. I just feel bad for kids. They should not to hear such words like they are using while they are fighting. It is not right.


I could see that Dr. Phil is angry too because of that. Kids are innocent in relationship and should not go through this. It may affect them in the future. When you are growing up in family like that it is possibility that you can act like your parents in the future.


I think that they should not to stay in house with parents.  Dr. Phil....good luck. This is not going to be easy.

I cannot believe of all the families that could use Dr. Phil's help the producer talked him into this one.  I do not feel either one of them are in it to save their marriage.  They think it's a game.  They know the cameras are on and it doesn't seem to faze them.  It seems more like they came out there just to go to Los Angeles.  Neither one seems sincere.  I feel so sad for those children.  Like Dr. Phil always says children don't pick their parents.  How is the way they act in front of these children any different from other parents you have had on your show that have abused their children and you've turned them in. 


I think you should remove the kids from the Dr. Phil house until (not likely) these grown ups start acting like grown ups.  They so into themselves and does not give a darn about what they say or how they act in front of these poor children.  Send them some place fun so they realize life is NOT what they have been taught.

Get the kids out!!!!

I can't bear to watch the kids going through this mess.  They need to be removed until Jessica and Todd calm down and quit screaming.  She is a liar.....from day one.  She needs to "get out of there" so she can call the boyfriend....who does she think she is fooling?

Missed Todays Show Due to News Alert

I watch Dr. Phil every day, today our local news station took over with a very sad news story about another school shooting in Lancaster PA, in an Amish one-room school a gunman entered the one-room school and let the boys go and a few mothers w/babies but kept all girls, lined all the girls up in front of the blackboard and started shooting, 3 children dead, 7 critical in several hospitals andthe shooter  turned gun on himself (32 yr old man dead left wife and 2 children behind).  Please keep Amish families in your very sensless.


However, I was unable to watch the show, I did watch a bit of the clips and read some of the message boards and it seems to me just more of the "same 'ol"  "same 'ol" from Jessica.  Also I think Jessica is just a fake who wants to be on TV, that is my "true gut feeling".  I have been cheated on in my life time, never by my husband, thank my Lord, but by boyfriends I have.  I am of the opinion "Once a cheater.....always a cheater"  I am also of the opinion if you get a man by cheating to get him....that is the way you will loose him.  Isn't that how they got started.....cheating with each other???? If I am not mistaken it is, so why are they so surprised.   As I stated I didn't get to see the show today but he said in his clip, he knows what Jessica is capable of because of what she did with him.....well, well then what do you expect huh????  Jessica loves to hear herself talk for some reason, she gives me the impression (more every time I see her) that she thinks she  hung the moon.  I get the impression she is a fake.  Maybe I am wrong, maybe if I was face to face I would feel different, I am not seeing her in 3 dem. so I am not getting the entire story.  It just seems to me nothing is important to Jessica BUT Jessica and the world according to JESSICA and that is just a real shame.  Those children are what really matter they are really the ONLY things that matter here.  They didn't sign on for any of this, they were brought into all of this and it is so unfair to them, so very unfair.  I just think maybe the mother-in-law need to snatch those children up, take them out of the house and let the two parents fight it out and see what happens, let the chips fall where they may.  But Jessica, if you read these message boards read this YOU DID NOT HANG THE MOON.....GET REAL GIRL Stop the lies, first to yourself then to everyone else and welcome to reality!!!!!  It's a nice place to be this REALITY!!!!

It's both their fault

Quote From: stinkie

   Why does it always have to be someone elses fault...lets not let her get off so easy as using what happened to her as a child. I have know many people that have had bad childhoods, rather than repeat the bad behavier that did all they could to be a better person.
I am not letting either of them off easy because it's not my job.  That is something they will have to deal with for the rest of their lives.  They both have to take responsibility with their own actions and what part of the relationship they damaged and how.  Whether it was her cheating, him not participating in the relationship, her calling him names or him nagging her about whether she had an affair or not.  They both had a part in it.  It's seems he's ready to forgive and move on but she seems like she wants out.  I am sure their minds are going crazy with different scenarios and what to do and not do.

Kids, Kids, Kids - Grow up people!

I see the way everyone is worried about the kids.  Kids this, kids that!  Yes I agree it is terrible what these kids are going through BUT they are not the only kids going through this and much more. 


Why do you think we have kids on drugs, kids having sex at 8 years old and sometimes younger, kids cutting classes, kids dropping out of school, kids shooting and killing others?  Because they are subjected to the stupidity of adults who only care about themselves and are oblivious to their childrens needs.  We close our eyes to our own inequities but love to judge others inequities. 


Our children are suffering not only with what goes on in the house but what they see on television everyday, the violent games they play on their playstations, the porno they see on the internet , the lousy music on the radio and the pictures they post of themselves half naked on "My Space". 


That is what upsets me, that adults are quick to complain when their children have to say the Pledge of Allegiance, or when they are subjected to anything to do with "Jesus", something that is good, but they are not quick to complain about the dirt on television, the dirty music or the other violent stuff that they see and hear everyday, especially in their own homes.


Why?  Because it violates their "freedom".  Grow up people.  Our kids are our future and if we keep brainwashing them with junk, junk will continue to come out and our juveniles will be broken when they grow up to be adults.  Just take a look at yourself.

Yes the choice is yours

Quote From: venividivici

Choices 101:


No one can complain about  you, that is if  you are making good choices. Why would they? So  you might as well make your choices good ones.  

I agree with you.  It all has to do with the choices you make.  If some tall, dark and handsome hunky guy comes up to you and starts romancing you everyday and you get all hot and fuzzy and you body says I got to have him, it's a choice you make whether to move on that urge or not. 


Life is about choices and sometimes we don't look at the consequences and just jump in only to face the turmoil of our choices in the future.

whatelse is new

 Well seems jessica tried to play the victim in this whole situation right up to the end... surprise anyone  certainly not me... I really gotta  kick out of last week's episode when she had her "heart to heart" with Justin. Please that was just another bunch of lies and crap coming from jessica she knew the cameras were rolling. Had she cared at all she would never have made him feel that bad to begin with then she says they are "her life" yeah right. I haven't been able to post in a bit so this is gonna  one  big post lol.. But does it surprise me that jessica has given up on her marriage taken the easy way out of it all and hurt her kids once again.. NOPE fully expected that. I mean she lied about everything  if her marriage was really that bad off then she should have left long ago taken her kids and walked out but instead she  brings all this home and puts her kids in the middle of it. NO WONDER SHE LOST CUSTODY as she should have until she  as well as todd can get their tempers under control.. Todd needs to stop being  so gullable and suck it up  his wife cheated on him not once  but twice  and although he said he could get past it. did he really think he could... he needs anger management and he needs to learn when to just let things go personally i think  they will be much better off without each other why prolong the inevitable anymore. Jessica needs  to also take some anger management classes and she needs to learn to keep her hands off her kids. at no time is beating your kids ever right and never will she be able to justify that at all to anyone. she also needs to learn what marriage vows are and what they stand for  and she should probably keep  herself out of affairs before she wrecks any more lives.. sympathy for either one of these two no i don't have much i do however have a  whole lot for those boys  cause they are  after all the real victims of this  whole thing they are the only innocent ones here that have had their  lives destroyed... as far as jessica getting custody of tyler tyler should go with todd i do beleive that..


Dr.Phil  you tried to help this family but looks like they had their minds made up before they even came into the house which is sad all we can do is hope these great kids get something better

Phil and Robin

I have been watching Phil and Robin for a long time.  Their marriage seems to be solid and loving with respect  and all the wonderful things that make a marriage last.    She is not only adoreable but intilligent - wise and  loving.  I just think the both of them are awesome.  I wonder what makes them mad when the cameras are not rolling.  What makes them mad about the people on the show and in their private lives.  God bless their marriage and their family.
