They also say Nicole has been arrested and charged with three DUIs, was found passed out in a bus stop with a blood alcohol level of .41, and has even set her apartment on fire twice. Nicole admits she’s an “extreme alcoholic,” and that she is a danger to herself and others around her. She says she drinks because she hates looking in the mirror and to help her escape from reality.

"My 19-Year-Old Thug Daughter was Involved in a Drive-By Shooting and is a Menace to Society and This Family"
ALL-NEW! Kate, 19, grew up in the suburbs but according to her family, she’s acting like a thug, smoking weed, wearing baggy pants, and hanging with the wrong crowd. She calls herself “Lul Kate” and has stopped going by Katelyn. She was even involved in a drive-by shooting. Kate’s sister, Ashley, wrote to the show saying she's worried her sister is going to end up dead. Kate's mother, Donna, and her husband, Bob, claim Kate's behavior is so out of control, they've had to install surveillance cameras in their home and change the lock on their door to stop her from stealing. After another screaming match a couple of weeks ago, they finally kicked her out of their home, and Kate’s been sleeping on the streets since then. Donna says she did not raise Kate to be a “thug.” Donna and Ashley both agree there’s a good chance Kate will end up dead if she doesn’t get help!

"Help! My Daughter is a Beautiful Model and Ex NBA Basketball Wife Who Has Turned into a Partying, Stealing, Foul-Mouthed Mom!"
ALL-NEW! Janis claims her daughter is an entitled narcissist and has been extremely toxic since she was 5 years old, but says things took a turn when Brooklin moved to L.A. in search of stardom. Brooklin was married to an NBA star and lived the fast life in Hollywood with socialites, fancy cars, designer purses, and drugs. According to her mother, Brooklin has been to seven rehab facilities, spending over $200,000 of her mother’s retirement savings. Brooklin claims that was her past life; she’s now drug-free and has found God, yet her mother still treats her like she’s some kind of monster. Brooklin says she just wants her mother to back off, be supportive, and let her be the star she was meant to be. But, Janis says Brooklin is still making life miserable for the entire family and that she fears her daughter will end up in a grave. Find out if Brooklin takes Dr. Phil’s guidance? Plus, does your past dictate your future? This was the very question AnnaRose King set out to answer in her first debut film Good Enough. King joins Dr. Phil to discuss Good Enough, which she wrote, produced, directed and stars in, alongside Academy Award-, Emmy-, and Golden Globe-nominated Hollywood legend James Caan. The film explores feelings of grief, loss, and the yearning of wanting to know more about a parent who passed away far too soon: a topic very personal to AnnaRose.
