"My 12-Year-Old Son is Being Spanked by His Father Who Thinks He is Possessed by Demons and Wants Him Exorcised"
ALL-NEW! John claims that his 12-year-old son Jack is possessed by evil forces that are instructing the boy to kill his family. He says he’s so concerned that he started preparing for an exorcism. He claims to have a team in place ready to rid his son of evil because, if he doesn’t, then he may not be able to prevent the mass murder of his family or the unthinkable: he, himself, killing his own son in order to protect others. John's ex-wife Jen says there is no way on earth she is going to let their son go through an exorcism because he is not possessed and says her out-of-control son is mentally ill. Jen claims the main issue is John, who she says uses harsh means, including spankings, to discipline their child. (CTD)

"My Beautiful Daughters Accuse Me of Being a Controlling Manipulative Father"
Steve says his daughters, 25-year-old Alexandra and 20-year-old Victoria, are constantly making self-destructive decisions and allowing men to take advantage of them. But, Alexandra and Victoria say they have not gotten the love and connection they needed from their father lately. Steve says that is just “dumb” and both of his daughters need therapy and suggested they get Dr. Phil’s app, Doctor on Demand. He even sends his daughters quotes from Dr. Phil that Steve believes apply to his daughters’ lives. But, is Steve following Dr. Phil’s advice from the shows that he is watching or just dictating to his daughters? Alexandra and Victoria say their father has tried to control them their entire lives, from telling them whom they could hang out with, which TV shows they could watch and even tried to put a tracking device on their phones. Steve’s daughters say they want him to back off and stop what they call his controlling behavior. But, Steve says it’s not that he’s controlling, he claims there are legitimate reasons for all of the decisions he has made, all designed to keep his daughters safe. Find out what Dr. Phil has to say about Steve’s parenting. (Original airdate: 9/11/17) (CTD)

Sue and Mike claim Billy is verbally abusive and a liar, and now they claim he is turning Lindsay against her own family. They say these are just a few of the reasons why they would never give their business to Lindsay and her husband. But, Billy and Lindsay believe they are rightfully entitled to more of Mike and Sue’s money and their business, despite being bullied by Robin and Brooke.
