"My Meddling ‘Monster-in-Law’ Who Lives Next Door Doesn’t Want Me to Remarry My Ex-Husband"
ALL-NEW! Sixteen years ago, Greg and Amanda secretly married during college. Greg's mother, Kathy, says when she found out, she showed her support by buying the newlyweds a plot of land adjacent to her home so they could build a house of their own. Greg and Amanda built their home and had two sons, but say they had a much harder time building their marriage. Amanda says this is largely the fault of her mother-in-law. Amanda says Kathy initially came across as "elderly and sweet," but, over the years Amanda claims Kathy has turned into a "monster-in-law" who is a “lying, vindictive, manipulative snake.” But Kathy claims Amanda has anger problems, has threatened to set her house on fire, punched Kathy on the side of her head five times before taking out a restraining order after claiming she was in danger and had her arrested. The two women haven't spoken in over a year. Meanwhile, Greg and Amanda divorced with benefits, as they were still secretly seeing each other until two weeks ago when they broke up again. Amanda says she now has an ultimatum for her husband turned ex-husband turned boyfriend turned ex-boyfriend: “Choose between your mom or me.”

"Our Runaway Teen Daughter Thinks She's in Love with an Older Man Who Police Allege Raped and Threatened Her"
ALL-NEW! Mark and his ex-wife, Melissa, claim their 17-year-old daughter, Malia, has been running away since the age of 13, dropped out of school in the sixth grade, and has become physically abusive to the family. They allege that two years ago, 15-year-old Malia became involved with a 35-year-old man -- a man recently charged with offenses including contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor, strangulation, and possession of a firearm -- to all of which he has pled not guilty. Malia says she’s defiant because her parents are “too strict,” and when it comes to her boyfriend, she says she loves him and will wait for him to get out of prison if he’s convicted. Mark and Melissa say they fear if they can’t get through to their daughter, she’ll end up dead. Can Dr. Phil help Malia?
