Aundrea admits she’s an alcoholic and a liar, and claims she is keeping two dark and embarrassing secrets from her family that could cause her to serve serious prison time.

“A Mother Charged with Criminal Child Abuse in the Death of Her 10-Year-Old Son”
When Jennifer, a mother of six, appeared on the show, she had been charged with first-degree criminal abuse in the death of her 10-year-old son, Dominic, who died from an overdose of hydrocodone and sepsis. Even though Jennifer was a registered nurse, she says she failed to see the signs that her son was seriously ill and did not immediately take him to the hospital, leading to his death. But, Dominic is not the only one of Jennifer’s children who has died mysteriously in her family. Years earlier, Jennifer’s 2-month-old son, Ezekial, died from SIDS. What happened the day Dominic died? How did Jennifer miss the signs that her son was seriously ill? And, Jennifer’s husband, Joseph, spoke to Dr. Phil from jail. What did he have to say about the death of his 10-year-old son? (Original airdate: 4/25/17)

Tom and Karen say their 15-year-old daughter, Madison, is out of control.

Tom and Karen say the police have been called 100 times and Madison has been charged four times with domestic abuse for physically attacking Tom. In addition, they claim Madison has stolen their car 30 times, and most recently, Tom says Madison was in an 80-mile-per-hour car chase — while high on drugs, with a friend carrying a gun — which ended with the car being totaled.
