After all their hard work, the latest Dr. Phil Family receives some surprises from Dr. Phil! He informs Melissa that everything she needs to get her life back on track is headed her way: a complete health evaluation, personal trainer, nutritionist, and food service delivered to her door. In addition, she’ll receive help for her depression and be connected with a developmental disabilities specialist for her autistic son. But it all comes with a condition: Melissa and Randy need to heal their toxic relationship. Then, a talk with Myra and Gene leads to a tearful apology. And, will a one-on-one with Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, help Myra see that she deserves to be treated with dignity and respect? Will Myra set some standards in her broken marriage? Will there even be a marriage to speak of when they get home? Dr. Phil has some strong words for Gene. Next, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity pits brother against brother as Edwin and Eugene audition for a Hollywood talent agent and a casting director. Don’t miss the surprising twist when they get a call from the judges. Then, it’s time to switch gears – literally! Since Myra and Melissa never learned to drive, Dr. Phil sets them up with a driving lesson so they can become more independent. And you won’t believe the prize in store for the women if they pass their driver’s test! Dr. Phil sits down with the entire family one last time. Will they use the tools he gave them to build healthier relationships? Talk about the show here.

Find out what happened on the show.

Randy & Edwin

Quote From: badapple_06

No kidding!! I wondered about that, too. The brother would accept comfort from others when it was offered, but Randy didn't seem to try to solicit comfort from anyone BUT him. If there's anything going on, it's definitely originating from Randy............................

I thought there was something there, too.  I definitely sensed that Randy was more into Edwin than Melissa several times . . .

Myra and Gene are still working on their marriage

I sincerely hope this couple can be successful in repairing their marriage. Old habits are hard to break.  But without true forgiveness, replaced by respect and earned trust - the road can lead to divorce.  Wishing you and yours the best outcome possible.

Randy & His Brother In (Common) Law: The Real Story

Naw, really, I'm sorry, there is absolutely nothing "normal" about those two cuddling on the couch. That was just flat CREEPY. What was flabbergasting was the fact that it was mentioned by no one (except the director of the segment, who spent PLENTY of screen time on that scene). One hopes that this is being addressed off-camera.

God bless everyone, no exceptions.

You all have no clue

Quote From: janie2256

I can't imagine that anyone else is supporting her, other than all of us.  She made it clear that she doesn't work, and she doesn't live with her parents.   
This is for everyone that thinks Melissa collects money from the state.  She does not this is her boyfriend I work very hard and support her and Ryan by myself so to put all these comments to rest she is not on welfare.  Thank you

This is so funny

Quote From: moofoo719

couldnt say it better myself. this is edwin. my mom and my family are of puerto rican descent and yes it is customary to be affectionate. we kiss girls on the cheek as a greetin and guys hug. it's jus the way we were raised. i've been pretty amused at the fact that alot of people thinkme and randy are havin a tryst or sumthin. thanks for using logic and ur brain. u are a ok in my book.
Everyone who keeps commenting on me and Edwin thank you all so much you all give me something to laugh about each day.  We are not gay just close.  What you all did not see was when Myra hugged me after we got done talking and she had her arm around me does that mean we have something going on oh boy someone better say we do I don't want someone to miss that oppertunity.  To all those me and Edwin thank you all have a great day.  Randy

No I was not offerd any help

Quote From: dellintulsa

Dr Phil, Did you offer any help for Randy? - Or, did I miss that part?  He definitely needs help, which I am sure of which you are well aware.....Thanks, dellintulsa

Thank you for the comment unfortianitly I was not offerd any help at all so I am trying to change on my own.  I was told that I was just there for support so I guess I don't need help according to some.

What's up with Randy & Melissa's bro??

Quote From: samlab

I found myself wondering why Randy was sitting with his arm around Melissa's brother during the entire discussion.  I realize that the brother was the only one to offer Randy any comfort when he started to cry, but the way they continued to cozy up against each other for the remainder of the show has me wondering what's the story there?  They certainly looked more like a couple than Randy and Melissa, or even Gene and Myra.



I thought the same thing, and then as the family continued talking he kept it there, like they were a couple.  They were closer then anyone else in the family and if Melissa's family had so much distrust fro him for doing her wrong and ripping her off, why were they so cozy and for sooo long???

Empathy for Melissa

Quote From: vickicouch

I'm sure there are a lot of people out there, that were flabbergasted by Melissa's remark about her autistic son.  I would ask that anyone that's about to jump down Melissa's throat, to stop and consider how you would react if you child were kidnapped.  I know how she feels, I have an autistic 4 year old daughter.  I can tell you that she loves her son, she is just very isolated, overwhelmed and depressed.  It seems to me that she does NOT have a very good support system.  If she is anything like me, she questions herself every single day.  What did I do wrong when I was pregnant?  Maybe it was the hotdog from 7-11, or the medication I was taking before I knew I was pregnant?  What kind of life is my child going to have?  Why didn't this happen to someone else? 

Though I do not have a weight problem, I too feel paralyzed by the fear of what could happen next.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Melissa, don't give up on your Ryan!  My Cree is such a wonderful little girl that loves everyone.  She is my hero.  I really believe we will find a cure.  If you're having a hard time, and need someone to talk to, I registered my phone number, please call me.  Don't be so hard on yourself.  Trust me, no one truly understands until it happens to them.

Good luck and God Bless you!

I have empathy for Melissa and the entire family as well.  There's problems in all family's, some more extreme than others depending on who you ask.  I applaude Melissa for contacting the Dr. Phil show for the needed help for her family.  I don't have a child with special needs but, life has happened to me.  In saying that you can lose yourself in grief, thus Melissa gaining the 100lbs.  It happens, just be strong, continue to love, try hard to overlook the negative responses and be strong for your son and yourself.  Melissa if you take care of self, you can make it to take care of your son.  You have a loving family that has a few hiccups called life, you will all be fine.  I because of circumstances in my life too gained a great deal of weight, once it's there it's hard to lose but it I'm determined to lose.  It didn't happen overnight so I will not lose overnight.  I'm just truly amazed at how harsh some of the post are about you.  Please ignore the negative


God Bless!
