Dr. Phil checks up on past guests to see how much of his advice stuck. When David and Deandra were on the show, their 22-month-old daughter was in five classes and was only allowed to eat a vegan diet. Have they loosened up their strict ways? And, 17-year-old Tracy tried to convince Dr. Phil that the photos on her website were not too provocative. She's an adult now, and claims her site is less sexy. So why does she still want Dr. Phil's approval? Talk about the show here.


Find out what happened on the show.

Does anyone know the web address of Tracy's  website?   I'm not a pervert.  I just want to review the website myself before I make any comments on it.  Thanks.

More on Tracy...



I have been reading the various comments about Tracy and her pics. I too, was suprised from her first appearance that her mom would allow those pics. The pics aren't exacly porn, but some are not exactly "fasion" pics either. I think that Tracy doesn't get that if she really wants to pursue a serious career in modeling, she must stay away from photos like that. I think that Tracy isn't sure what she wants to do- and that is ok. She is making some $ from her website, and as long as she doesn't give in to the alure of doing porn, she will be fine! Modeling is so competetive- I hope she either gets an agent or something, or pursues something else! Good luck Tracy!

09/23 What a Difference a Year Makes

Quote From: cpreeve

This was a rare case where I disagreed with Dr. Phil's advice to a guest.  I didn't realize that Dr. Phil was such a prude.  Tracy already has the qualities that Dr. Phil preaches--self confidence, pride, motivation, self-esteem, and identification of her talents--yet he wants her to give up the modeling career that she is seeking.  I don't understand that.  I'm a middle-aged man, and I don't find anything pornographic or sleazy about her web site pictures.  They look like attractive fashion model pictures to me.  It's too bad that we've come to take almost any display of the female form as pornography.  Why don't we take it as beauty that is to be appreciated.  I learned a lot from those focus groups that saw Tracy's pictures as sleazy.  (Reactions reveal a lot more than actions.)  I learned that those folks have dirty minds that lunge at the opportunity to attach sexual innuendo to any word or picture.  This is a problem common to most Americans these days.  Tracy, the clothes look great on you.  Keep following your dream of being a model until YOU make the decision to follow another path.  Best wishes.



Those pics were a little bit more than just "fasion model pics" but I certainly wouldn't call them sleazy- ppl who call them sleazy have apparantly never seen real sleazy pictures. I thought the pics were great- I LOVE fasion, and modeling- I look through mags like Vogue for the ads! Some of her pics I could totally see in a fasion mag, but some were really pushing the edge of sexy and soft porn- there is such a fine line. I think Dr. Phil agrees that Tracy looks great in her clothes, but I think he is just trying to make sure her clothes stay ON! It is so easy to be allured into doing pornographic pictures: the money is great, and since it's photos, it's easy for young woman to not see the harm. If Tracy wants to pursure a proffessional modeling career, she cannot do any photos that are even a little towards that way. I wish her all the luck- you go girl!!!!

Regarding Tracy

Dr. Phil, I hope you don't waste any more time on this gal.  She's very pretty, but STUPID!

pictures approval....

I dont understand this girl at all......she obviously doesnt get it that the pictures on her website aren't just modeling pictures, that they are more like soft porn pictures in my opinion. I am a mom of a soon to be 13 yr old daughter and if my daughter came to me and showed me a website with pictures of her like this i'd have a coronary, even if she is 17 yrs old. But now she's 18 yrs old and still wanting approval?! my question is why?! in my opinion, if she's asking for Dr. Phils approval still, then she knows the pictures are improper. She is a very beautiful young lady, but she has a lot of growing up to do. If she is really wanting to be a model, then why doesn't she try out for "America's Next Top Model".

just wondering

 i haven't been able to watch most of the shows because i work at a flea market and miss most of the segments.  but from what i have seen on this update show  i would think that David and deandra's plan would backfire just for the fact that even if the diet and learning regimen worked to create a super kid, the child would be scarred from the divorce that comes out of them no communicating and interacting enough with each other.  On the woman with the 25,000 pounds of junk, how did she fit that all in her house? And on the girl named Tracy, the pictures I was able to see when I was around the TV were provocative, but I saw her say that she has toned down her site.  Would someone be kind enough to direct me to her site.  I mean I don't doubt doctor Phil's opinion that she's doing to much but I also don't want to make a conclusion about someone by the 2 photos that were shown.   I have seen discussions on what her website is like but I haven't seen anything that show how people found it to inspect.
