(Original Air Date: 11/2/2005) False accusations have ruined lives and divided families. No one knows this better than Terry. She claims she was falsely labeled as a gossip at her son, Steve's, rehearsal dinner and was escorted out of his wedding by security! Now, she confronts her son and daughter-in-law for the first time in almost five months. Can this family ever reconcile, or are they better off apart? Then, a former high school principal made headlines when a 16-year-old student accused him of having sex with her. The scandal rocked the town, and now he struggles to regain his reputation and move forward.  Share your thoughts here.

Daughter-in-law & Aunt

Regardless if Terry made the rude comment or not, the truth is the truth.  If her ex-husband did get another woman pregnant and Terry shared the information, so be it.  I have to question the motive of the aunt who went  back to her niece and shared the information.  If that aunt REALLY cared about her niece why would she want to put a damper on the rehearsal by repeating the comments?  If gossips were being banned from the wedding, the aunt should have been told to leave, too.  After all, she was gossiping, too!   


It sounds like to me Steve and Theresa were looking for a reason to keep Terry away from the wedding.  I think Theresa's actions speak volumes about her character - she is not a person that can be trusted.  There will be many more episodes like the wedding day in this marriage and she will single out anyone who she feels is a threat to her.   Steve and Theresa didn't want his sister or his mother to share their big day with them and their reasons are lousy excuses.  Theresa and Steve's wedding day is a preview of what's to come in their marriage. 


Instead of having a wonderful day with wonderful memories, they chose to create memories that involved drama and the police.  They don't sound like a very mature couple to me.

Her son is not too bright

I gotta agree with one of the other posters.  There is a BIG difference between gossip and truth.  Gossip is a false statement meant to cause harm to another.  TRUTH is something that actually happened.  Your dad could NOT keep his "shrinky dink" in his pants DURING HIS MARRIAGE!  Therefore, he got his MISTRIESS pregnant!  What part of that is gossip?  Your mom has a right to be angry!  So does your sister!  So do you, only you're too much of a "daddy's boy" to realize you should be mad as heck!  Pull your mom and sister aside before the nuptials and state your position, don't EMBARRASS them by sicking the police on them RIGHT BEFORE THE CEREMONY!  Your dad is a gutless wonder, and apparantly so are you and your "darling" wife!

11/02 Falsely Accused

I don't know why Steve and Theresa did not want Terry at their wedding. I think that is the one time when everyone in your family (regardless if you like them or not) should be present, and see that you don't have to show them up, or be mean to them just because you may not want them around. You are goig to have to see these people anyway if they are family, no way around that! Plus I think that Steve and Theresa need to try to patch things up with his mother, and sister it's what is best for everyone.

11/02 Falsely Accused

I think that if her husband left her for another woman then she has every right to be mad.  I also think the daughter-in-law is the problem seems to me that she does'nt like his mother and was looking for an excuse to keep her from the wedding.  She was very rude to her mother-in-law.

Principal Needed

We are in the process of finding a principal for our middle school (grades 6-8).  If he and his wife would be willing to relocate to North Mississippi, there is a job opening here!  We need a GOOD principal!

Falsely Accused

This is a sad situation.  The new wife has not placed any blame on the aunt that carried the "gossip".  Was she at the wedding?  Talk about trouble maker....... 

If this son decides to carry on this negative relationship due to his wife's feelings toward his mother the wife will someday feel the repercussion of this hate.   

What goes around, comes around!!! 

Mend fences, start anew.  You can not forget but you can forgive, and that goes to all parties involved. 

Dr Phil is right, don't wait until someone dies to say I love you and yesterday is just that yesterday. 

Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is a mystery, today is the present.  Accept the gift of today, treasure the love we are blessed with.  Someday this young wife will learn that a mother (and or son) will not always like what each other does but they should always love the person, even if the do not like their actions. 

Theresa hopefully your future daughter and/or son-in laws will be more caring for you and forgiving than you are toward you husbands mother.  Watch out for that aunt that thought she was doing you a favor.

Get over it daughter-in-law!

I think the main problem with this family is the daughter in law wants to eliminate the mother all-together!  She acts like she's got it our for her husband's mother, little does she know, this is a recipe for disaster.  She has the husband so "wrapped" right now that he can't see straight.  He will regret having his mother removed from his wedding.  And I can guarantee you the wife was the ring leader of that.  So what if the mom did say those things!! Big deal!  Isn't that the truth?  The wife just wants the husband all to herself and yes, as was stated on the show, she sounds very selfish.  What if her mother was removed by police officer's from her own wedding.  We'd have a whole other show!!  The wife, daughter in law, whatever........needs to get a grip and leave that man and his mother to their own relationship.  And to the husband, when the new wears off and the honeymoon is over, you'll probably start seeing things in a whole new perspective.  Nevertheless, you can't bring back the memories of your mother being at your wedding.  This daughter in law sounds like a spoiled little brat that just used this "gossip" thing to keep the mother from the wedding.  And if it were me, I probably would have.....................well never mind.........won't do to say all that.........Dr. Phil would not be happy with that statement!  Ha Ha.
